The Sorcerer and the White Snake in theatres February 8

Magnet Releasing (the genre arm of Magnolia Pictures) provides a couple of exclusive theatrical engagements for this wonderful Fant-Asia film, about a monk (Jet Lie) battling a demonic White Snake (Shengyi Huang) that has assumed human form and fallen in love with a mortal herbalist (Raymond Lam). (If the plot sounds familiar, it is because this Chinese Legend previously served as the basis for producer Tsui Hark’s GREEN SNAKE [1993].)

THE SORCERER AND THE WHITE SNAKE has been available via Video on Demand since January 3, which means you can watch it here. However, the glorious production values (originally filmed in 3D) deserve to be seen on the big screen, if you are lucky enough to live near a theatre playing the film.
