Both of the trailers have actually looked interesting to me, and given that there haven’t been a true-to-the-books version made yet, it’ll be interesting to see director Jeffrey Chiang’s take on it given his success with the 2017 version of the Legend of the Condor Heroes.
The background of the poster looks just like the book covers of the Sanlian version!
The trailer for Heavenly Sword and Dragon Saber the ninth but I believe the first adaptation of the latest edition of the novel actually looks super solid. The scenery, costumes, and choreograph all look natural, as does Zeng Shunxi’s acting minus one scene. At least three of the four female leads look dead inside every single scene, though.
Zeng Shunxi as Zhang Wuji the 9th, at your service.
Heavenly Sword and Dragon Saber the 9th 倚天屠龙记has released its first set of stills. I’d always thought this is the perfect Jin Yong novel to adapt for melodramas with idol actors. Glad someone finally took the advice and went for it. The cast is at least pretty and young , and I already like this Zhou Zhiruo more than the last one.
