Posters, stills, and photoshoots that caught our eyes this week.(more…)
When films list Jingle Ma (The Butterfly Lovers, Mulan, Speed Angels) as director, it’s usually a sign for me to stay right away from the very beginning, because his movies always turn out to be so very boring. I’ve heard some good things about the other two Raiders movies though, so let’s hope he doesn’t turn an action flick into a snooze fest.
So Young 2: Never Gone 致青春：原来你还在这里 is a romance film based on the novel of the same name by Xin Yiwu (辛夷坞). The film stars Liu Yifei as the struggling student Su Yunjin and Kris Wu Yifan as the high school genius Cheng Zheng who takes a liking to her.
Minor spoilers below the cut.
Guo Jingming and China’s first motion capture animation film L.O.R.D. (Legend of Ravaging Dynasty) finally released its first full-length trailer. It stars Fan Bingbing, Yang Mi, Chen Xuedong, Kris Wu Yifan, Amber Kuo, William Chan, Yan Yikuan, Aarif Lee, Lin Yun, Wang Duo, and TF Boys‘ Wang Yuan.

We have Kris Wu Yifan in London, Chen Kun, Wang Kai, Sheng Yilun, Chen Xuedong in Milan, Yang Yang, Jing Boran in Paris.
