Chen Kun, Zhou Xun’s The Yinyang Master releases first teaser

The Yinyang Master 侍神令 is a very loose adaption of Netease RPG game Onmyoji, and stars Chen Kun as Qingming (Abe no Seimei), Zhou Xun as Babai Biqiuni (Yao Bikuni), Qu Chuxiao as Yuan Boya (Hiromasa) and Shen Yue as Shenyue (Kagura). William Chan and Wang Likun costar.

The film uses the game’s characters, but will feature an original storyline:

In the Kingdom of Wuyue, malevolent demons have bewitched humans and are causing havoc in the capital. Qingming and his crew must work together to protect the people and put an end to the turbulence.

There’s also another film adaption based on the original novel series, and is directed by Guo Jingming and stars Mark Chao, Deng Lun and Wang Ziwen.

  1. Love the sets and costumes (I would complain about it being too Japanese, but since this is based on Japanese lore, it makes sense). Not a fan of the monsters, remind me of Monster Hunt (which had ugly monsters)
