Han Geng, Janice Man struggle for air in dystopian wasteland drama Hard Memory

4773_63720

Could this be the first hard sci-fi drama to succeed?

Sci-fi drama  Hard Memory: Prisoner Under Air 失忆之城之空气的囚徒 tells of a city in need of memories and oxygen. In the near future,  the populace are imprisoned in a walled “city”  as their memories are farmed by the ruling class. I imagine they must really need oxygen outside of the walled city since not giving people enough oxygen is probably not the best way to get memories.

 Han Geng plays a boxer who helps the poor to win oxygen  through fighting matches.  The sci-fi drama is produced by and stars Han Geng. Janice Man, Kenny Kwan, Zhang Yuxi join his team while Shawn Yue and Zhang Yujian play the antagonists.

Fan Bingbing and Han Geng promote new movie with L’Officiel Photoshoot

Fan Bingbing is a flower fairy, again. She and Han Geng (the other star of this photoshoot for L’Officiel) recently starred together in the movie “Ever Since We Love 万物生长,” where Han Geng plays a man who is recently admitted into medical school, and Fan Bingbing plays a charming women who oversees the medical equipment. It’s supposed to tell a story of youth (although, if you’re going to medical school in the US, one would imagine that the story should be the opposite).

Han Geng Would Rather Be an X-Man than a Transformer?

After almost a year without any new music releases, Han Geng is finally back with a summer single X-Man. Despite his lack of new music releases, Han Geng’s been very busy this year. He starred in Zhao Wei‘s directorial debut film So Young and grabbed a bunch of music awards for his single Clown Mask. Now it looks like he’ll be joining Li Bingbing on Transformers 4.

He’s one of Asia’s top stars in the worlds of music, television and movies and has become one of the most influential entertainers in China. Now he’ll also be known for Transformers 4. Welcome Han Geng to the cast of Transformers 4. – Michael Bay

Han Geng’s role in the film has yet to be announced – whether he’s been given a Fan Bingbing-esque role is yet to be known. On a positive note, his new Huayi rom-com Former Raiders (前任攻略) has finally began filming.

I know the title is misleading, but I couldn’t help it. Continue reading

Photoshoot Friday: May 31, 2013 (Black and White edition)

 photo 704_979045_566605_zps01f064c6.jpg

Yao Chen squeals over the existence of a purely black and white photoshoot round up, but she should be more excited about a post with more men than women.

I need to publish this post before we end up with more girls than boys again, and I need to think of a new caption. Note: These photos were often black and white selections from shoots with a wider variety of color. Take a look!

Yao Chen takes the cover of this round-up, embodying the elegance that oozes out of old black and white photographs. Jing Boran peaks out from behind bars, and Yu Haoming reposes like an old world count. Han Geng‘s expression is Gothic and gloomy. Zhang Ziyi looks like she could be in a shampoo commercial in her two shoots, and Hu Jun – like all the men in these shoots, actually – suits up for his set.  Continue reading
