Spring Festival, the most important holiday for Chinese people, is around the corner once again, and that also means the year's hottest movie season has kicked off. Here we recommends your must-sees on Chinese screens during this period.

Journey to the West - Conquering the Demons

Director: Stephen Chow, Kwok Chi-kin
Starring: Shu Qi, Wen Zhang, Huang Bo and Show Lo
Release date: Feb. 10, 2013

Hong Kong's "King of Comedy" Stephen Chow will release his latest fantasy comedy "Journey to the West - Conquering the Demons," on Feb. 10, the Lunar New Year's Day. The film is the most anticipated one of the season and definitely set to cause a box office storm.

The film is loosely based on the Chinese classic "Journey to the West," and has echoes of Chow's classic 1990's hits "A Chinese Odyssey - Pandora's Box" and "Cinderella." The story is about how the monk Tang Sanzang falls in love with a female exorcist and tames the three demons of a monkey, a pig and a fish to become his disciples. The monkey, a.k.a. Monkey King Sun Wukong, is the biggest villain in the film, which is a very bold adaption -- as in the original text the Monkey King holds a very positive role. The film also has much to make audiences laugh, thrill them and move them to tears, all with a little help of some dazzling visual effects.
