Believe it or not, Chow Yun Fat's gaudy new suit of silver armour weighs some 50 pounds, or over 22kg.
The 3D film THE MONKEY KING (SAI YAU GEI ji DAI LAU TIN GUNG) after half a year in production and over two years in post production will be released on January 30 2014.
Sun Wukong Donnie Yen Chi Tan, the most handsome Bull Demon King in history Aaron Kwok Fu Sing and other costumes have surprised.
The Jade Emperor Chow Yun Fat, Chang E Gigi Leung Wing Kei, the Goddess of Mercy Kelly Chen Wai Lam, Erlang Shen Peter Ho Yun Tung, East Sea Dragon King Liu Hua, Nine Tailed Fox Xia Zitong, Princess Iron Fan Joe Chen Chiao-En, Nuwu Zhang Zilin, Nezhan Carlson Cheng Ka Sing, and Buddha Hai Yitien's costumes were finally unveiled yesterday.
"Heavenly Palace CEO" Fat Gor wore a silver armor and carried the Green Dragon Sword. As the Jade Emperor he needed to protect the three realms' harmony and peace and protect the Heavenly Palace. Thus he wore an arm and carried a weapon. William Chang Suk Ping designed the armor that weighed 50 pounds and was hand stitched.
Kelly wore the Yee Chung Man designed Goddess of Mercy costume, which she really liked. "The simple fabric brings out the Goddess of Mercy's colorless and shapeless image of truth, kindness and beauty." Leung Wing Kei tried her first costume performance and played Chang E. She received good reviews as some described her as resembling the Little Dragon Maiden.
Yen Chi Tan's Monkey King costume had a red robe armor and magic staff atop a golden Giant Dragon Pillar, laughing madly at the sky in a show of arrogance.
For convincing expressions, he watched many documentaries about monkeys and paid attention to their behavior. Kwok Fu Sing's Bull Demon King had the Flaming Mountains, black clouds and lightning as his background, displaying a conqueror's dominance.
Princess Iron Fan Chen Chiao-En showed her cold show as she had to move the Bull Demon King with love.
