"Shaolin" releases new poster. [Photo:]

Benny Chan's action movie "Shaolin" has released a new poster featuring the four leading actors in the film—Jackie Chan, Andy Lau, Nicholas Tse and Fan Bingbing.

The background of the poster shows the burning Shaolin temple. To make the temple look older than it actually was, the director asked Chung-Man Hai, the film's artistic director, to build a second Shaolin Temple. Chung-Man Hai spent two months and 20 million yuan (US$3 million) building the temple, which is larger than the original Songshan Shaolin Temple.

The story is set in the 1920s when an arrogant warlord named Hou Jie (Andy Lau) is trapped by his follower Cao Man (Nicholas Tse). Hou loses his family and hides in the Shaolin Temple where he becomes a monk. As social unrest spreads and people continue to suffer, Hou and the Shaolin monks are forced to take a fiery stand against the evil warlords.

"Shaolin" opens in cinemas nationwide on January 19.
