Stephen Chow wants to work with Anne Hathaway

Posted: 18 Mar 2014 10:25 PM PDT

The famous Hong Kong actor-director dishes on the perfect fight scene for the Hollywood actress.

Stephen Chow conquered the Chinese box office last year with Journey To The West: Conquering The Demons, which became his country's top-grossing film.

While he has no plans of abandoning China for Hollywood, the martial arts actor and director says he's now setting his sights on working with American actress Anne Hathaway. Yet, he's worried the Les Miserables star might not mesh with his particular brand of action comedy.

"I heard that she got married, so I don't have a chance anymore," Chow joked to TheWrap.

Journey To The West is alternately funny, thrilling and horrifying. It loosely updates a Chinese fable about a pair of demon hunters, but puts a fresh spin on the oft-told tale with dazzling action sequences and special effects.

"Imagination is the key," Chow said, explaining the secret to cooking up one of his genre-defying fight sequences.

Chinese audiences ate it up, shelling out more than US$200mil (RM640mil) at the box office. In the United States, Journey To The West debuted on video on demand this month and rolled out in a handful of theatres.

Though Chow cites American directors such as Steven Spielberg and Martin Scorsese as influences, the tone of his movie veers between Laurel and Hardy and Kill Bill. Yet, it's too early to tell if Journey To The West will click with US audiences, and make good on its title.

Chow contends that the secret to the film's appeal in China was that "my movie is suitable to audiences of all ages". Given that the movie opens with a scene of a little girl watching as her father is gobbled up by a sea monster, before she becomes the beast's latest meal, what's appropriate for children may get lost in translation. — Reuters

Since being created in 1950, the Peanuts comic strip has become an American pop culture icon. The adventures of Charlie Brown, his pets and his friends have been read in over 75 countries. – AFP Relaxnews

New trailer alert: The Boxtrolls

Posted: 18 Mar 2014 08:10 PM PDT

This animated feature from the folks who brought us Coraline and ParaNorman takes a look at a group of misunderstood night creatures, the Boxtrolls.

The Boxtrolls is set in Cheesebridge, a small Victorian-era town obsessed with wealth, class and the stinkiest of cheeses. Beneath its charming cobblestone streets live creepy monsters called the Boxtrolls, who crawl out of the sewers at night to kidnap children and steal er, cheese.

At least that's the legend residents have always believed in anyway.

The truth is that the Boxtrolls are simply an underground cavern-dwelling community of quirky and lovable oddballs who wear recycled cardboard boxes as clothes. The Boxtrolls found an abandoned baby a few years ago and have since raised him – who they call "Eggs" – to be one of their own.

When the gang is targeted by an exterminator named Archibald Snatcher who is bent on eradicating them, the Boxtrolls decide to let Eggs return to his own kind and teach the humans about who they really are. Helping him out is the adventurous rich girl Winnie.

This movie opens in Malaysia in September and features the voices of Isaac Hempstead-Wright, Elle Fanning, Ben Kingsley, Simon Pegg, Richard Ayoade, Nick Frost, Jared Harris and Tracy Morgan. Directed by Anthony Stacchi and Graham Annable.
