The Chronicles of Narnia: The Voyage of the Dawn Treader


Edmund and Lucy Pevensie, along with their cousin Eustace, are swallowed into a painting and transported back to Narnia and the magnificent ship The Dawn Treader. They join King Caspian and a warrior mouse named Reepicheep for a mission which holds the fate of Narnia itself.

Debut date: 7th Jan 2011
TRON: Legacy
Sam Flynn, a rebellious 27-year-old, is haunted by the mysterious disappearance of his father Kevin Flynn, a man once known as the world's leading video-game developer. When Sam investigates a strange signal sent from the old Flynn's Arcade -- a signal that could only come from his father -- he finds himself pulled into a digital world where Kevin has been trapped for 20 years. With the help of the fearless warrior Quorra, father and son embark on a life-and-death journey across a visually-stunning cyber universe -- a universe created by Kevin himself that has become far more advanced with never-before-imagined vehicles, weapons, landscapes and a ruthless villain who will stop at nothing to prevent their escape.
Debut date: 11th Jan 2011
Shaolin (新少林寺)
Though the Chinese name of the film was "Xin Shaolin Si" ("New Shaolin Temple"), it actually tells a different story from the 1982 version of "Shaolin Si", which turned Jet Li into a household name in the mainland.
The new film was set in the 1920s, during which time the warlords in China were fighting with each other. Besides showcasing the Shaolin kung-fu style, the film will show many modern war scenes as well. Director Benny Chan explained that "The usage of modern weapons is in a conflict with traditional kung fu. It's a terrible thing to many kung-fu masters."
Debut date: 19th Jan 2011
My Own Swordsman (武林外传)
Director Shang Jing has reunited the original cast to continue his parody of social issues through the stories of everyday life in a small inn.
The TV version debuted in 2006 and was so popular that its cast, including Yan Ni and Yao Chen, has since become A-list stars.
Debut date: 26th Jan 2011
