A bunch of new “The Forbidden Kingdom” character posters have surfaced over at IESB and I’ve got to admit I think they look pretty sweet. For those of you who don’t know what The Forbidden Kingdom is, here’s a little synopsis of the film:
While hunting down bootleg kung-fu DVDs in a Chinatown pawnshop, Jason (played by Michael Angarano – “24”, “Will and Grace,” LORDS OF DOGTOWN, SEABISCUIT) makes an extraordinary discovery that sends him hurtling back in time to ancient China. There, Jason is charged with a monumental task: he must free the fabled warrior the Monkey King, who has been imprisoned by the evil Jade Warlord. Jason is joined in his quest by wise kung fu master Lu Yan (Jackie Chan) and a band of misfit warriors including Silent Monk (Jet Li). But only by learning the true precepts of kung fu can Jason hope to succeed – and find a way to get back home.
Yes, the premise sounds LAME… but let’s see what Chan and Jet Li can do on screen together.
