After dropping out from 2020’s film line-up due to the pandemic, the third instalment of Detective Chinatown is finally ready to premiere on CNY in 2 days and is currently leading the box office pre-sales.
Liu Haoran and Wang Baoqiang reprise their roles as the genius detective x squeaky-voiced uncle. The film has also cast notable Japanese actors Satoshi Tsumabuki, Masami Nagasawa and Shōta Sometani.
This might be the most fun photoshoot of the year. As the host of the upcoming GQ Men of the Year event, Wang Yaoqing spoofed all the 2020 covers. Other than being funnier, there are two covers of his that I unironically like as fashion magazine covers more than the original.
Moses on the Plain 平原上的摩西 is produced by art house director Diao Yinan (Wild Goose Lake), and stars acclaimed young film actors Zhou Dongyu and Liu Haoran in the leading roles.
While probing into a taxi driver’s murder case, detective Zhuang Shu (Liu Haoran) discovers that his childhood friend Li Fei (Zhou Dongyu) is somehow involved, and that he may also have been a witness.
Both having led major films with critical acclaim, Chun Xia and Liu Haoran are two of the top actors of their generations. Chun Xia is currently filming A Love Never Lost, while Liu Haoran can be seen in National Day holiday films My Country, My Hometown 我和我的家乡 and Coffee or Tea?一点就到家.
