“I see the future, the blooming of a ten thousand flowers. ” – Jolin Tsai’s lyrics and my dream for Chinese entertainment.

Thanks to the addition of Vivian Dawson, Tiny Times 3.0  got a new theme song from Jolin Tsai.   The song, Kaleidoscope 万花瞳, is blocked on YouTube, but you can watch the MV on LeTV here.   What do you think? How does it compare to previous theme songs by  Sodagreen and Yu Kewei?

Tiny Times 3.0 posters, make out edition!

Why have two main male leads paired with the main female leads when you can pair them with each other?

Tiny Times 3.0 shows you that movie posters don’t have to actually relate to the plot as long as there’s fanservice involved.

Why sleep alone when you can kiss someone else? Tiny Times 3.0 cast celebrates Valentine’s Day with a poster series of the main cast about to kiss.

Posters feature Yang Mi, Amber Kuo, Kai Ko, Chen Xuedong, Bea Hayden, Xie Yilin, Jiang Chao, Du Tianhao, and newcomers Vivian Dawson, Ren Youming, and Lee Hyunjae.  Note that the posters may have nothing to do with the actual plot and most of those pairings do not exist in the book.

Weibo Wednesday: January 15, 2014

This week’s Weibo Wednesday will kick off with three couples — can you guess who they are? First is none other than Yang Mi and Hawick Lau, who got married in Bali on January 8th.

杨幂: 谢谢今天的一切,谢谢所有的祝福,谢谢你们,我嫁喽

Thank you for everything today, thank you for all of your blessings, thank you all, I am married.

Some sharp-eyed netizens noticed an ironic Weibo post from October 2011, shortly after Yang Mi and Hawick filmed the MV for “Thorny Embrace” (刺猬的拥抱) together. In it, Yang Mi denies the relationship rumors with Hawick… only to go public not three months later, on January 8th, 2012.

“Tiny Times 3.0” set for Summer 2014

U10247P28T3D4048784F326DT20131124222125

Although you didn’t know it before, Tiny Times 3.0 is actually about  Hannibal the cannibal’s adventures in China.

Writer-director Guo Jingming recently announced on Weibo that productions for Tiny Times 3.0 will begin production in December, probably with the same cast. The film is set to be in theaters in Summer 2014.   One interesting note is that the subtitle is “Age of Piercing Gold,” the name of the third book, implying that this might be the end of a trilogy rather than a quadrilogy as previously thought since the second film is based on Tiny Times 1.5  rather than Tiny Times 2.0 the book.

Last year, when I first decided to be a director, I asked everyone:’After so many years, those of you who like Tiny Times, are you still here? Do you still love (it)?’ This year,I may have to ask once more. It’s because 《Tiny Times 3.0 : Age of Piercing Gold》 begins production in December. Next summer, let the future explode once more. #Tiny Times 3.0#, youth never departs.

I think this must be the most-covered upcoming film series ever, but they have such great posters all the times that it’s hard to resist sharing them.

Guo Jingming’s Tiny Times 2 (based on the second half of the book Tiny Times 1.0) begins to move into the darker intrigues of the series as the clear cut relationships of part I begins to tangle into a mess of hidden intents, dark secrets, and business tricks. The Dinner poster focuses on a key scene in the first book, a birthday party turned mystery dinner, complete with host Amber Kuo and guests Yang Mi, Kai Ko, Li Yueming, Guo Biting (or Beating, whichever one’s worse), Calvin Tu and Xie Yilin.
