Joe Cheng star in TV adaptation of Legend Of Ravaging Dynasties

One major plus for the TV series: the actors will actually look like humans

The TV adaptation of fantasy Legend Of Ravaging Dynasties 爵迹·临界天下 has already been filmed and released its first trailer. The people will definitely look more real than the film version, so  already a plus.  It’s shot partly in New Zealand, so  the landscape will also look way better. The script is Bai Yicong (Candle in the TombThe Lost Tomb) , who is a hit or miss.  The whole cast hasn’t been announced, but Joe Cheng and Zhang Ming’en should be playing the main duo of Yinchen and Qiling.  Huang Mengying also plays a role.

L.O.R.D. 2 posters will definitely be better than the film

I don’t know enough about art but William Chan looks like half-Middle Earth elf and half-Catholic church.

L.O.R.D.  was such a let-down that I can’t believe it’s getting a sequel, but at least the posters are pretty.   Here’s posters of four of the leads – Fan Bingbing, Kris Wu, Chen Xuedong, and William Chan. Not sure whether the rest of the cast will return.

L.O.R.D. Fan Bingbing just as gorgeous in CGI

How's this for good CGI?
Can you tell this Fan Bingbing is all CGI?

China’s first motion capture animation film L.O.R.D. 爵迹 released its first sneak peek of its CGI, this time featuring actress Fan Bingbing.

The film is set for a September 30 release. (My heart shattered a little when I heard the time. Railroad Tigers is airing the same weekend, so the chances of that screening when there’s L.O.R.D. at the same time in North America is small. Nooooo.)
