I’ve missed Stephen Chow.  He heated up in the early 2000s with Shaolin Soccer and Kung Fu Hustle, but he’s been quiet since 2008’s CJ7.  Although he’s produced several projects, we’ll finally be getting his latest directorial effort with the upcoming Journey to the West (a.k.a A Chinese Odyssey, a.k.a Odyssey).  Chow co-directed the film with Derek Kok, and if you can figure out what the movie is about from the trailer, then congratulations.  The only thing the first trailer seems to tell us is that this madness came from the mind of Chow, and that’s good enough for me.

Hit the jump to check out the trailer.  Journey to the West is due out in Hong Kong on February 7th.  Hopefully, we’ll get a U.S. release some day.
