Magic to Win with Wu Zun and Karena Ng Release Full Theatrical Trailer

The full theatrical trailer has dropped for Magic to Win starring Wu Zun, Karena Ng, Wu Jing, and Bakmin Wong, which is coming out in less than a month. The trailer discusses how humans only utilize 10 percent of their brain, and would be capable of so much more if they tapped into the remaining unused portions. So I guess magic stems from whatever unknown powers lies in our unused brain cells? I can buy that bit of silliness and join the world of good looking magicians battling for supremacy.

The trailer harkens back to the Golden Days of HK cinema, in the late 80s and early 90s, when even the silliest bit fluff can be vastly entertaining and quite memorable for it’s good-natured charm. This movie appears to have that mix of fantasy and slapstick that HK can blend just right to create the tastiest treat. It doesn’t hurt that I’m sorta having a crush on newbie Karena Ng, who totally has the “it” factor based on BTS footage and interviews with her. She looks like a baby Anita Yuen but has the aura of a young Charlie Yeung.

Wu Zun and Karena have been doing the press circuit in recent weeks for the movie. They look great together.

  1. Looks SO fun! I’m wondering what the chances are that I’ll get to see it here in San Diego… Probably have to wait til someone subs it on youtube… *sigh*

    • Asian film Festival next year. Start bugging them now. They might do a special midyear screening if enough people bug them.

  2. Wow, this actually looks pretty cool. I like the premise a lot, and none of the magic seems overwrought. Also, lightsabers!!! Put a lightsaber into any movie, and I’ll watch it. 😀

  3. I wish America was more tolerant of foreign films. And by that, I mean that I wish they more readily available. Hollywood has been so stale in the last five or six years, anyway – it could use a good shot in the arm.

  4. Wu Zun is soo busy doing so many movies.. I’m not able to keep up with him moving around so much in china, taiwan and other asian countries.. but best of luck and i will have to give this one a try. 🙂

  5. This movie looks hilarious and wacky and something I’ll probably watch on a rainy day.

    But I can’t get by the fallacy inherent in the set-up: humans use all 100% of their brains, not just 10%. Couldn’t the writers have swung by, say, Wikipedia or something?

    • Oh, really? I’d always heard we only use 2% or something XD Thank you, I learned something!!! ^^

      I love magic and fantasy (though in novels I prefer it when they create their own world; in movies or series, earth is fine. It’s kind of weird), so I’ll definitely watch this. And she’s really got…something, that’s awesome!
