The Chinese/Taiwanese cast members of Sophie’s Revenge minus Fan Bingbing who was probably busy with one of her six upcoming movies, helped launch the official site for the movie yesterday.

Included on the websites is Sophie’s Revenge first teaser trailer. This was released at Cannes, and it did a pretty good job because the rights were sold to five countries. Although it’s not featured here, Cao Xuanbin will be writing the theme song. Can’t wait to see how will make it reflect the feel of this film.

A few more pictures from the launch and some new HQ stills from the movie below. The latter is my real reason for making this post.

In the second episode, "Mi Yao Yue Dui" from Thirteenth Month Records won over Wen Jiao.

Mix-box aka Jie Jie Gao Sheng, the show that gives a stage for new artists, is back, this time changing its format and stepping up the quality of their musicians. First to go is the old show format, where through some strange and twisted way, the singers that fail to impress the judge gets to sing their whole song and the rest gets only 30seconds.  In its place is a system where two singers PK each episode and the winners will battle each other out. Interestingly enough, the contestants are often paired to have a more “pop idol” versus a more “non-idol musician.”

“Mi Yao Yue Dui” is a classical folk song group consisted of lead vocalist/guitarist and ex-Super Boy Zhou Luming and celloist Meng Nan.
