Gorilla Hits a Baseball In MR. GO Teaser

Last week brought us our first look at Mr. Go, a Baseball-playing Gorilla headlining Showbox's new Korean comedy, but how does he look in action? Naver has the answer with the first 30-second teaser, featuring this CG character indulging in a variety of primate-related antics, and some initial interaction with baseball and baby girl Wei Wei, who will become his future manager.

Based on a popular Korean comic by Heo Yeong-man, the live action film is directed by Kim Yong-hwa (Take Off, 200 Pounds Beauty) with a $20 million budget. The cast includes Xu Jiao (Starry Starry Night, CJ7) and Sung Dong-il (Take Off, 200 Pounds Beauty).

Wei Wei grew up in the circus with a bat-swinging gorilla named Ling Ling. After her grandfather dies in the Great Sichuan Earthquake, she has only Ling Ling to depend on. In order to pay her grandfather's debt, she has no choice but to accept sports agent Sung's proposal to bring Ling Ling to the Korean Baseball League. Despite serious doubts and ridicule from the league, Ling Ling, now dubbed 'MR. GO', becomes an instant hit, hitting one home run after another and propelling his floundering team to the playoffs. However, the rise to stardom is met with unexpected troubles and MR. GO must now face adversaries beyond his control.
There is no embedded video available so click here to view the teaser.  Mr. Go 3D will be released theatrically in Korea in July.
