In the film, Ma will star as Bai, a successful biotech engineer who has to lead his group of friends across a New York City overrun with zombies in order to save the world. STX is releasing the Todd Strauss-Schulson directed film in the U.S. and UK and through its foreign output partners with Tencent distributing in China.
I was so happy to instantly recognize Jackson Wang when he started singing in the Shang-Chi trailer! Honestly, I had just assumed Marvel would go Black Panther on this and give us a pure kpop soundtrack. It looks like the soundtrack is done through 88rising, so I’m going to go on a limb and say we might also hear Higher Brothers in the soundtrack. Either way, so happy for Jackson Wang !
Also, I never realized how much physics and thought went into martial arts filming in even C-list Chinese dramas to make them at least somewhat believable until I watched Marvel films and saw how bad even their fight scenes are. They all just look so staged.
Ni Ni roams with reindeer as she visits Aoluguya, the last reindeer tribe of China for her new travelogue photoshoot. I still can’t believe there hasn’t been a movie about Maria, the 90-year-old female chief of the tribe who must have so many stories to tell.
It’s not a new year of idol group survival shows without a Gabrielle photoshoot, so here’s the fun homoerotic one for this year’s current breakaway favorite, Chuang 2021.
Realizing that it’s going to be tough fighting for boyband member hopefuls between three streaming services for the fifth year in a row,Chuang 2021 made the smart move to bring in a ton of international contestants, especially from Japan, to make both the competition and also the interactions interesting. And it worked! I honestly don’t have attachments to any of them since I have yet to find a boyband hopeful hotter than Lu Keran, but the show is hilarious to watch as a comedy.
If you’ve noticed the lack of good photoshoots in the past month from major publications, it’s because all of the covers were by Chen Man and they were lackluster at best. After she hastily put out dull photoshoots for Li Bingbing, Zhou Xun, Ni Ni, and Sun Li one after another, I was starting to wonder if she’s planning to take her money and run soon. Luckily there’s this photoshoot of Zhou Dongyu that perfectly captures her playfulness and is so crisply photoshopped that it reminds us Chen Man is still a master at her craft even using 50% effort. Glad to have you back, Chen Man!
