A while back Nerdbastards wrote about Hank Chien, the man who bent former Donkey Kong champs Billy Mitchell and Steve Wiebe over a table and went to town on their asses. Chien is the new high score champion of the 8-bit game Donkey Kong, capturing it from the bitter rivals with a score of 1,090,400. Now he can add one more title to his resume, other then doctor and gamer, a movie star. Just like the aforementioned Mitchell and Wiebe, Chien is the star of his very own video game documentary called Doctor Kong: Cutting Up the Competition. While it isn’t a sequel to 2007’s A Fistfull of Quarters it doesn’t mean it’s any less interesting, showing his rise into the record books in between his personal and professional life. Check out the first look at Doctor Kong.

Pretty good considering they started filming this before he became the new world champion at the barrell avoiding game. It’s like director Alexis Neophytides knew Hank was going to be a contender turned champ, with his beaming smile and personality. Already screened in Brooklyn, New York, the film has more screenings slated for later in the month. Billy has his “Rickey’s World Famous Restaurant” chain and Steve has his “heart of gold” sportsmanship but Chien has a the new record (for now). He won’t have to use that “I’m playing Donkey Kong so I can get laid” after this hits the market, the wads of cash in his pockets should do all the talking now.
