Learn the mystery behind the Monkey King 2's new poster

16 May 2014 / 2 years 5 months ago

The poster for The Monkey King 2 has a very significant omission -- can you tell what it is?

Following the commercial of The Monkey King starring Donnie Yen Chi Tan, Aaron Kwok Fu Sing and Chow Yun Fat, it seems natural that a sequel is in the works.

The film took in some 1.053 billion RMB ($211.5m), a figure that has been driving plans for the next instalment.

The first English concept poster for the sequel was unveiled at the Cannes Film Festival.

However, the poster was notably missing the face of the Monkey King, nor any indication as to who would be taking up the role.

With Donnie Yen seemingly dragging his feet in taking up the mantle of the Monkey King once more, the jury is out on who will play the iconic character in the sequel.

Filmko revealed that the film will start production in October and has been slated for a 2016 Year of the Monkey release.
