Hu Ge, the Shanghainese man who went from being a nobody to a household name by parodying Chen Kaige’s movie The Promise (无极) and nearly getting his ass sued into oblivion as a result, has come out with a new film. Unlike his previous films, which were all shorter and relied heavily on footage from various Hollywood and Chinese movies, this new film, entitled 《007大战黑衣人》 (007 Versus the Man in Black), is a 30 minute spy/action film spoof and features a lot of original, live-action footage. The material is straight up spoof in the vein of Weird Al Yankovic, Leslie Nielsen, or Scary Movie, with a bit of Team America-esque political punditry as well. The movie was “officially released” by video sharing site 6rooms and e-commerce site Dang Dang and divided into four minute installments. The clip above is, as you will notice, from the middle of the movie. Start from the beginning and the site will automatically take you to the next installment.
