This thread is for hyping or tracking films that are in development and have not yet been released.

Feel free to let us know what to look forward too and why. My first submission is:

Legend of the Fist: The Return of Chen Zhen

n4874.jpg

Presumed dead after single-handedly defeating all the Japanese fighters at the Hongkou Dojo to avenge his master, Chen Zhen joins the Labour Corps during the First World War. Deciding to return home to defend his country, he arrives in Shanghai disguised as a wealthy businessman named Qi. He quickly befriends the notorious mafia boss Mr. Liu (Anthony Wong), owner of the nightclub Casablanca, and Kiki (Shu Qi), the club’s star hostess. With the rapid expansion of Japanese influence in China, the military releases a death list, sending Shanghai into complete panic. As assassinations become rampant in the city, Chen disguises himself as the Masked Warrior to protect those who have been targeted.

WHY SHOULD YOU BE LOOKING FORWARD TO IT?

Donnie Yen is hot s*** these days in terms of action films, as a very talented fighter and choreographer. The film is directed by Andrew Lau who co-directed Infernal Affairs (the film Scorcese re-made as the Departed)

Do you remember this film? The characters name is Chen Zhen and this film follows after the events of Fist of Fury in Japanese occupied China. Chen Zhen dons a mask and becomes a masked freedom fighter.

RE Afterlife

I'm looking forward to it because I enjoyed the first three films.

I'll only see it in the theater if there is a non-3D version playing locally, though. 3D sucks.

 This movie will suck balls. And I will be there day one cause as a RE fan I need to see what they screw up this time. Hopefully Wesker makes it enjoyable. Oh and 3D should be cool, its the real 3D. The kind used with Avatar not the make a movie filmed in 2D into a 3D movie later in post production kind of crap so many movies do now.

Poor GG, the first two replies are about one of the worst movies of the year.

I dont know, looks like a poor holiday season. I guess Tron Legacy. I will see Harry Potter cause I might as well see it to the end. Denzel Washington on a train sounds like fun, Unstoppable is the name. Red looks cool.  I saw Let the Right One In so I have no reason to see Let Me In. Oh the Social Network should be good.

Let's see...now that I've seen Videodrome and SFMV there's not much I can think of that I'm looking forward to seeing. Something'll come up at a later date, probably. Nyaa

I am looking forward to not seeing Inception, though!

(I didn't miss the in-development part, I just completely ignored it.)

For the sake of poor GG:








The trailer is worth checking out to because it is as if it's advertising another film! Oh yeah, sort of spoilers in that clip (but it doesn't really matter), and the film may upset GG's stomach! Nyaa

DETECTIVE DEE

Detective_Dee_postor_20100816_sinacomcn.jpg

Tsui Hark directed the Once upon in Time in China trilogy starring Jet Li as well as the frenetic The Blade film about the one armed swordsman. This film blends mysticism and the paranormal with ancient detectives. Watch the trailer.

When the mysterious deaths of a series of loyal subjects threaten to delay the 690 A.D. inauguration of Empress Wu Zetian, China's only female leader, she summons the infamous Detective Dee back from an exile into which she cast him eight years earlier.

REIGN OF ASSASINS

Produced by John Woo, perhaps directed by him - that's not clear. It's a Wuxia pic starring Michellle Yeo. If it's as good as Red Cliff it could be a classic in the making.

Damn, is that in HD? I've seen the trilogy 5 million thousand times though so I can't bring myself to watch it again.
