“Wheat” Stars Fan Bingbing and Huang Jue in “Cosmo Bride”


I knew I had forgotten at least one movie in my previous post, and Wheat‘s one of them. It also opens on the 28th; My Fair Gentleman has some really stiff competition. This is the comeback movie of director He Ping, whose last movie was 2004’s well-received Warriors of Heaven and Earth.

Huang Jue is probably unknown to anyone who doesn’t follow Chinese dramas, but he gained a popularity boost  this yearwith the series Qing Cheng Zi Lian. He’s always had some fame though. His last film  was rock movie Air Diary with Xu Fei (yeah…I had no idea either, but I like the theme song). And I’m sure you know Fan Bingbing from a gazillion different things this year .
