This is a pretty big deal for both Chow and China -- CJ7 will have the country's first cinematic creature that is completely digitally produced. What sort of creature? The flick is a "sci-fi comedy about how the sudden arrival of a strange new pet shakes the lives of a poor laborer father and his young son." Apparently, this creature is some sort of alien in the shape of a dog. If you think this has a bit of an ET feel to it, you'd be right. The director has admitted that Steven Spielberg's alien heavily inspired the story, being a favorite film of the actor/director.
While it is hitting Chinese screens at the end of the month, we won't have very much longer to wait -- the film is set to be released in the US on March 7.
