Journey to the West  Japan Premiere
Director:Stephen Chow
Cast:Shū Qi, Wen Zhang, Huang Bo, Show Lo

This is a world plagued by monsters that cause its human inhabitants unspeakable suffering. A young demon hunter, Sanzang, fearlessly guided by his belief in “giving himself for the greater cause,” risks his life and conquers a water monster, a pig monster, and the Monkey King. By welcoming the three former demons as his disciples, the Monk Tripikata comes to learn what real “love” is. In order to atone for their own sins and save the common people, all four of them make the journey to India. This is the beginning of their “Journey to the West.”

Best known for “Shaolin Soccer” and “Kung Fu Hustle”, Stephen Chow introduces his first movie in six years. Soon after the movie was released, it earned over $200 million mega-hit! This incredible movie, a hilarious monster battle entertainment, will finally be launched in Japan!! Unlike most previous films and TV adaptations focus on the westward journey to India, this film focuses on how the monk and his disciples “Monkey”, “Pigsy” and “Sandy” meet and start their journey to India. The battle scene between the demon hunter and the demons is a must-see! Check out how the monk, Monkey, the pig monster, and the water monster end up heading to India.
