Animal World -Watch the trailer for China’s The Hunger Games meets The Matrix


Based on the bestselling Japanese novel and anime series Ultimate Survivor Kaiji and described as China’s The Hunger Games meets The Matrix, Animal World (动物世界) is headlined by megastar Li Yi Feng (李易峰), joined by award-winning actress Zhou Dongyu (周冬雨) and Hollywood legend Michael Douglas.

Drifting aimlessly through life, Kaisi (Li Yi Feng: Hundred Flowers Winner Mr. Six, Guilty of Mind) has racked up debts of several million having borrowed money from his friends. Lured with the promise of writing it all off, Kaisi leaves his ailing mother and childhood sweetheart Qing (Zhou Dongyu: Golden Horse winner Soul Mate, Under the Hawthorn Tree, The Thousand Faces of Dunjia) to board the ship Destiny and attend a gambling party controlled by the mysterious Anderson (Michael Douglas: Basic Instinct, Fatal Attraction, Wall Street).

All players join the game with stars. For each game they lose, their opponent captures a star. Everyone is holding daggers behind their backs plotting dirty means by which to overcome their opponents. The game quickly deteriorates into a slaughter and Kaisi must battle save his own skin…

A suspenseful action-packed blockbuster, Animal World is the new film from director Han Yan, best known for Go Away, Mr. Tumor which represented China for the 88th Academy Awards, and producer Chen Zhixi, famed for her hit films Lost in Thailand and Detective Chinatown.

The film will have a national release across the UK via Cine Asia from 29th June.
