Li Bingbing, Jason Statham, and The Meg by Chen Man

Chillin’ among the sharks

Chen Man proves she still nails fun, creative photoshoots with this new promo photoshoot for The Meg’s Jason Statham and Li Bingbing. Winston Chao also plays a leading role, while Mai Hongmei and upcoming Mulan-lead Yoson An make appearances. I watched it and thought it was a passable, fun shark movie with some cool shots. Li Bingbing’s English is still pretty lacking but she definitely has a bigger role than most other token Chinese females in co-productions. The movie is out in theaters in the U.S. and Europe on Thursday August 9 and August 30 in Australia.
