Jet Li Battles A Monster In Sorcerer And The White Snake Trailer

Siu-Tung Ching is a skilled martial artist, stunt coordinator and fight choreographer who has helped shaped such spectacular cinema as Stephen Chow’s Shaolin Soccer, John Woo’s The Killer, and Yimou Zhang’s Hero.

But he’s also a prolific filmmaker in his own right, with 27 titles to his credit.

Though none of his films have yet to make a major impact Stateside, there may be a change coming as his latest action-packed fantasy epic The Sorcerer and The White Snake is set to make its U.S. debut early next year.

The film, which features international action star Jet Li, is based on an old Chinese legend about a man who falls in love with a beautiful woman, only to discover she’s in fact a deceptive and magical thousand-year-old White Snake.

Li plays the titular sorcerer who must battle this bad beast to save the love-struck man’s soul.

But lying snake women aren’t all this movie has to offer, there’s also angels, demons, and plenty of computer-enhanced action.
