Featured Film:

Lunar New Year at the Pacific Place

Celebrate the Lunar New Year this week with three of the biggest Hong Kong films of the year at AMC’s flagship theatre. Donnie Yen continues his quest to transform a real-life kung fu master into a cinematic folk hero, with the help of the villainous real estate developer Mike Tyson in Ip Man 3. Soi Cheang follows up his smash hit 2014 special effects epic with The Monkey King 2, with Aaron Kwok taking the title role over from Donnie Yen in a story from Journey to the West where the godlike simian and his Buddhist monk master confront a viciously amorphous demon played by Gong Li. Finally, Chow Yun-fat is back in yet another gambling action-comedy from director Wong Jing (a genre the two pioneered 27 years ago with God of Gamblers) in From Vegas to Macau III. This one adds Andrew Lau (Infernal Affairs) as co-director along with an all-star cast of Golden Age stars such as Andy Lau, Jacky Cheung, Carina Lau and David Chiang paired with younger celebrities like Nick Cheung, Shawn Yue, and Li Yuchun. It promises questionable taste, even more questionable plotting and plenty of weird fun.
