Posters, stills, and photoshoots that caught out eyes this week. What caught yours?Continue reading
Complete with kite flying, Beijing yogurt (aka the best yogurt), youtiao, and a friendly match of Chinese chess in the shadows of the imperial palace under writings of Mao Zedong, this photoshoot of Beijing native Lu Han is probably one of the best from Chen Man in a long time.
Lu Han’s currently starring in his first drama, Fighter of the Destiny. The series is too draggy for me but he’s very pretty in it.
Q: Can a fan tell me if Lu is his last name?
Soon-to-be costars Jing Boran, Luhan pose for the cover of GQ. The two will star in The film version of The Lost Tomb, with Jing Boran playing Li Yifeng’s role in the net series and Luhan Yang Yang’s role. So far all the films and dramas in the two major tomb-raiding series have flopped, but this cast is so pretty I can’t help but still look forward to it.

Director Zhang Yimou‘s first Hollywood flick, The Great Wall, will feature Andy Lau,Jing Tian, Zhang Hanyun, Eddie Peng, Lu Han, Lin Gengxin, Zheng Kai, Chen Xudong, Huang Xuan ,TF Boys’s Wang Kaiyuan, alongside Hollywood actors Matt Damon and Williem Dafoe. They’re really covering all the fan bases, but I’m hoping some of those will be cameo appearances since some of them really can not act.
Plot (script is written in English by a non-Chinese team) as follows per Hollywood Reporter, although Sina also mentions a female general aka stereotypical Asian love interest:
Damon, who is in final negotiations, will star as a soldier who is part of a group of mercenaries traveling to China in order to bring back gunpowder to Europe. When the group is attacked by mystical beasts, the man finds himself in a war between a secret warrior clan and the beasts.
