Twitch has your first look at the trailer for Fist of Legend director Gordan Chan’s next film, the stylish fantasy-action-romance Mural. The project began as a proposed sequel to 2008′s Painted Skin but soon became its own entity. The story concerns two bandits who are swept into an alternate world populated by beautiful women and creepy foes.
Somehow this gives way to plenty of special FX-assisted battles and a cameo by that mechanical owl from Clash of the Titans. Despite, or perhaps because of, all this craziness, the film has become a big hit in Mainland China. Martial arts fans will be pleased to know that Mural stars two heavy hitters in Collin Chou (Flash Point) and Andy On (Black Mask 2). Check it out the trailer here!
Update: This Chinese box office sensation is now available on Region 3 DVD from DDDHouse.
