I knew I had forgotten at least one movie in my previous post, and Wheat‘s one of them. It also opens on the 28th; My Fair Gentleman has some really stiff competition. This is the comeback movie of director He Ping, whose last movie was 2004’s well-received Warriors of Heaven and Earth.

Huang Jue is probably unknown to anyone who doesn’t follow Chinese dramas, but he gained a popularity boost  this yearwith the series Qing Cheng Zi Lian. He’s always had some fame though. His last film  was rock movie Air Diary with Xu Fei (yeah…I had no idea either, but I like the theme song). And I’m sure you know Fan Bingbing from a gazillion different things this year . I wonder if she  is tired of shooting movies or photoshoots yet. Probably not. I wish I had her energy.

The interview in Chinese is here. Usually I’m too lazy to translate in full, but I did  the part below. It’s not that I am a big fan of Fan Bingbing, and I do get tired of seeing her, but I think she gets a lot of unwarranted dislike, and that’s true for a lot of people in the industry.

Huang Jue on Fan Bingbing

She acts very well, and knows how to take of others. She’s a very open and lively girl, and a bit tomboyish. In reality, I was prejudiced towards her before working with her. Only after working with her,  did I discover she’s been demonized by certain media outlets.
