At first glance, you'd think "Mr. Go" is the Koreanized version of "Ed"...but no, unlike the 1996 comedy(?), this movie features a baseball playing gorilla, not a chimpanzee. Anyway, based on a Korean comic, "Mr. Go" is a $20 million movie featuring a CG gorilla named Ling Ling that, you guessed it, plays baseball incredibly well.  Here's what the movie website Twitch has to say. 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. Now, I don't want to go out on a limb here, but, something tells me (based on the first images released from the movie) that "Mr. Go" isn't going to rely on the same poop and fart jokes that "Ed" did. Then again, even if it does, it will be doing so minus Matt LeBlanc...so it's got that going for it.
