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.
Han Geng is in the midst of a career resurgence after the commercial success of Ex-Files 3: The Return of the Exes, and now he’ll be starring in the drama adaption, titled Love Me, Do You Dare? 爱我 你敢吗?
Set in 1930s Shanghai, The Wasted Times 罗曼蒂克消亡史 stars Ge You(Gone with the Bullets) as Mr. Lu, a powerful and murderous gangster who embarks on quest for revenge after his wife and children are killed by Japanese officials.
N.B.: Some of the dialogue is spoken in the Shanghai dialect.
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). Look under the cut for more pictures from their photoshoot!Continue reading →

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 →
