Seven years in the making, "CZ12" cost US$50 million (S$61.1 million) to shoot, and also stars Korean heartthrob Kwon Sang Woo.

The story is sprung on a quest to track down six bronze sculptures, originally part of a set of twelve representing the animals of the Chinese Zodiac which were looted from the Summer Palace in Beijing when the city was sacked by European armies in the 19th century.
