About a year ago, we posted the Hong Kong trailer for Stephen Chow‘s Journey to the West.  The film centers on a group of demon hunters who use the power of love to save people and embark on a journey to the West.  That plot doesn’t really come through in this new U.S. trailer, which is more about Chow’s general energetic, madcap visuals.  The look of the movie should come as no surprise to those who have seen his previous films, Shaolin Soccer and Kung Fu Hustle.  This time around, Chow is playing heavily with CGI, and while the CGI doesn’t look particularly good, it does fit with the cartoony style he’s apparently going for.

Hit the jump to check out the trailer.  The film stars Qi Shu, Zhang Wen, Bo Huang, and Lo ShowJourney to the West will be available on iTunes and in theaters on March 7, 2014.

Here’s the official synopsis for Journey to the West:

This is a world plagued by demons, who cause its human inhabitants unspeakable suffering. Young demon hunter Xuan Zang, fearlessly guided by his belief in “giving himself for the greater cause,” risks his all and conquers a water demon, a pig demon and the demon of all demons, Sun Wukong. He embraces them as his disciples, and melts them with love. Meanwhile, Xuan Zang discovers the true meaning of Greater Love himself. In order to atone for their own sins and save the common people, the four of them embark on a journey to the West that’s full of challenges…
