It’s not often I find a trailer that provokes such a strong reaction in my gut but gosh does this movie mark a new low in the careers of Arnold Schwarzenegger and Jackie Chan.

It doesn’t look bad in a watchable kind of way. It just looks bad. Thoughts?

CG budget of 5, not dollars just 5. And the audio was recorded in a toilet.

I have a feeling Arnold and Jackie are in the movie for like 10 minutes.

How many plots does the movie have?

Also, it looks incredibly clear that Arnold and Jackie are in the movie for one fight scene and then that's it.

I feel that Arnold is only in that one scene in the tower and Jackie Chan probably has most of his screen time there too.

They felt wholly removed from the main narrative.

I've seen better CGI from late 90's PSX games.

But it could be a fun 'turn off your brain' movie. I like those sometimes.

This is actually Viy 2, a sequel to the Russian fantasy movie that was known internationally as Forbidden Kingdom but is being advertised as a stand alone film for it's US release. Arnie and Jackie's roles are not much more than extended cameos too.

What a weird quagmire of localisations.

Yeah, Arnold and Jackie will be lucky to have 20 minutes of screen time combined.

Looks like it's a completely unrelated plot thread.

Jackie and Arnold really look like they are only in one scene judging by how they are both only in one area for that fight and the rest of the trailer is all over the place with other actors.

I am saddened. :(

The CG looks like one of those Game of War or FFXV:New Empire mobile game ads you'd see on TV - impressive, for a mobile game...

This looks like the kind of terrible that I end up loving unapologetically, like Sharknado.

I'm in.

It’s funny how’s there’s no mention that this is actually the sequel to Viy from 2014 (Jason Flemying is the actual star). I think that was purely a Russian production.

It looks like a worse version of that movie with Jackie and Jet Li and some random kid who fight some evil empress and Jet is the monkey king.

Holy shit lmao

edit edit:
Oh wait I'm thinking of a different Forbidden Kingdom I guess lol. Google says Viy is Forbidden Empire except in the UK.

Still waiting for King Conan Arnie.
This should have been the movie for them to team up!

Conan must protect the answer to the riddle of steel from a master of the drunken fist, who is just trying to find a worthy opponent to fight.

Is this a produced by Sony? Because I swear, they have CGI from a Playstation 2.

Oh, so it's just the marketing guys deciding that no one in America cares about that shit so let's have the most bankable stars be front and center even though they barely get any screentime and aren't the main characters.

Good to see this finally come out.

Jackie vs Arnold should be fun, although looking at the trailer I get the feeling that Jackie and Arnold's roles are probably going to be small.

Are we sure this isn't an ad for some mobile game?

I'm also putting money on Jackie Chan and Arnold only have one scene in this movie.
