shaolin movie poster US Trailer For Shaolin   Starring Andy Lau, Nicholas Tse, Fan Bingbing & Jackie Chan

Variance Films have unveiled this fantastic US trailer for ‘Shaolin,’ director Benny Chan’s (New Police Story, Robin-B-Hood) action adventure flick which stars the likes of Andy Lau, Nicholas Tse, Fan Bingbing and Jackie Chan. ‘Shaolin,’ originally known as ‘Xin Shao Lin Si’ in Mandarin, is hitting cinemas September 9th. I really like the look of this film, definitely a film I’ll be giving a peep when it’s released.

As feuding warlords fight to expand their power, the noble monks of the Shaolin Temple clean up the mess left behind, tending to the injured while trying their best to protect the poor and weak. General Hou (Andy Lau, WARLORDS, HOUSE OF FLYING DAGGERS) has caused much of this mess with his violent and ruthless tactics that rarely discriminate between soldiers and civilians. When Hao is betrayed by fellow general Cao Man (Nicholas Tse, THE PROMISE, SHAOLIN SOCCER), he is forced into hiding, and takes refuge with the monks (including Jackie Chan) at their hidden mountain temple. As the days pass, he finds himself more and more at ease as he learns the ways of peace, and begins to release his hatred through Martial Zen. But Cao is not far behind, and war soon reaches the temple, where the monks are ready to fight back- with their unstoppable Shaolin Kung Fu.
