3D Sex and Zen: Extreme Ecstasy Coming to the UK

The Hong Kong box office smash 3D Sex and Zen: Extreme Ecstasy has found a UK distributor in Metrodome, and is set to be released here in September.

The film will open in the US on August 12th by China Lion Film Distribution, who have recently joined together with Metrodome in handling the UK cinema release. 3D Sex and Zen will be released exclusively though the Odeon cinema chain from September 2nd. However, given the film’s rape scenes, the version that arrives here is highly likely to be cut.

“This will be China Lion’s first extension into the UK,” said CEO Milt Barlow. “We believe with exclusive partners of the quality of Odeon Cinemas and Metrodome, not only will we be successful with Sex & Zen 3D, but we’ll lay the foundations for future China Lion releases.”

We reported on how 3D Sex and Zen set a box office record in Hong Kong, earning $1.7 million (HK$13 million) during its opening weekend back in April. The $2.6 million (HK$20 million) production has already managed to turn a profit, having so far earned just over $5 million (HK$40 million) in Hong Kong alone.

The erotic costume drama is a remake of the 1991 film Sex and Zen, itself based on the erotic novel, The Carnal Praying Mat. The story tells of Wei Yangsheng (Hiro Hayama), a young scholar, who after marrying Tie Yuxiang (Leni Nam) finds that he is incapable of satisfying his new wife. He soon meets The Prince of Ning (Tony Ho), who invites Yangsheng to his Pavilion of Ultimate Bliss, where he encounters many beautiful women. However, his shortcomings compel him to undergo an operation to have his penis replaced by a donkey’s!

After a summer of 3D swords, wands and transforming robots, would you pay to see breasts and a donkey’s appendage protruding from the screen?
