Hong Kong funny man Steven Chow, responsible for rib splitting titles such as Shaolin Soccer and Kung Fu Hustle, will have his hilarious film King of Comedy released in a remastered edition courtesy of Nova Media. The South Korean region three disc will contain a 1.85:1 widescreen transfer and Cantonese/Mandarin audio in Dolby Digital 5.1. Furthermore, optional English, Chinese and Korean subtitles will be provided. The range of supplementary materials is sadly remarkably slim – the disc will only include a trailer and cast information. The title will be available from March 18th with an SRP of $24.95 ($19.95 from DVD Asian). Read on for a glimpse at the official artwork and brief synopsis.
Wan Tin-sau (Stephen Chow) is a struggling actor who has devoted his life to the study of his craft, but unfortunately the moment he gets on a film set, disaster usually strikes. However, Wan refuses to give up, and is busy trying to stage a traditional Asian drama, "Thunderstorm," when he gets an unusual job offer.
Piu-piu (Cecilia Cheung) is a bar girl who wants to be able to feign a greater interest in her customers, so she hires Wan to give her private acting lessons. The longer they work together, the more they find they have in common, and before long Wan and Piu-Piu are in love.
Heikek Chi Wong was a major box-office success in Hong Kong, where it was the top money maker for the Chinese New Year season; Jackie Chan makes a cameo appearance as an extra, and Stephen Chiau in turn had a bit part in Chan's romantic comedy Bolei Cheun, released at the same time.
