The fiction thriller "City Under Siege," directed by Benny Chan and featuring Aaron Kwok and Fanny Shu, released thrilling stills on Sunday, Sina.com reports.
Kwok plays a circus crown who accidentally inhales a chemical gas while treasure hunting on a mountain. The gas left by the Japanese army in World War II turns him into a giant, mutated Orc-like creature from the movie "X-Men Origins: Wolverine."
Chan, who is well-known for his action movies such as "Who Am I?," appears in the film which attempts to turn a traditional Chinese kung fu movie into a Hollywood-style fiction and action film.
"City Under Siege" opens on August 8.
