Guo Jingming’s Onmyoji adaptation releases trailer

Guo Jingming’s Onmyoji 阴阳师 adaptation released its first trailer today to prepare for its Christmas opening. I don’t know why Hollywood continues to build crappy sets like this one for Shang-Chi when even a Guo Jingming CGI-fest looks like this.

The film stars Mark Zhao, Deng Lun, Wang Ziwen, Chun Xia, and Wang Duo. How does this compare to Chen Kun and Zhou Xun’s Yinyang Master, which has the same name in Chinese?

Mark Zhao, Deng Lun, Wang Ziwen, Chun Xia, and Wang Duo are starring in director Guo Jingming’s latest film series, ancient fantasy Onmyoji 阴阳师, based on the novel series of the same name by Baku Yumemakura. Two films are currently scheduled in the series.
