Stephen Chow’s CJ7 Trailer

It’s been two-and-a-half years since Stephen Chow’s Kung Fu Hustle graced American cinema screens and fans of the Hong Kong comic/actor/director have been anxiously awaiting his next film.

Chow has done a good job on keeping a lid on specifics of the production, but it is known, after some initially confused reports, that the film will be called CJ7 and will feature Chow as a poor, widowed laborer who has an encounter with aliens. A teaser trailer for the film has now shown up online, and it doesn’t reveal much more than what we already know.

Maybe my expectations are set a bit high after the great one-two punch of Shaolin Soccer (2001) and Kung Fu Hustle, but the trailer leaves a bit under whelmed. Is Chow keeping the film’s jokes a close to his vest? Perhaps Chow is going to for a tone that’s different from his two previous comic masterpieces?

CJ7 is set for release in 2008.
