The Four 3 releases trailer

LIu Yifei’s character is called Heartless, by the way. You can add this image to your collection of ironic pictures.

The Four 3, the final installment to the film series, has released a trailer as well as announced its release date on August 22.  Starring Deng Chao (Cold Blooded), Liu Yifei Heartless), Collin Chou (the hot-blooded “Iron Hand”), Ronald Cheng (whose role Life Snatcher was previously held by “hotties” like Wallace Chung and Peter Ho), Anthony Wong, Jiang Yiyan, Alec Su, Wu Yingjie and Bao Bei’er, this film picks up from the abrupt and tragic end of the previous.  Presumably, it will bring to a close all the untied ends from the last two films with flurry of CGI.

Painted Skin’s director returns for another magical wuxia film with gloomy tones.

Even if the CDC knows of no zombie viruses, zombies are everywhere in the news and media. Next month, they’re even making their appearance in ancient China in Gordon Chan’s The Four. Starring Deng Chao, Liu Yifei, Colin Chou, Anthony Wong, Ronald Cheng and Jiang Yiyan, The Four is a detective-wuxia action flick loosely based on the book of the same name. The change of gender for Heartless may mean that bird girl Heartless ( Liu Yifei ) and wolf boy Cold Blood (Deng Chao) also have a romantic relationship somehow .

The sequel’s already been approved for filming.

Metallic Attraction: Kungfu Cyborg finishes filming

1000 million yuan Sci-fi movie Kungfu Cyberg finished filming yesterday with director Jeff Lau and leads Hu Jun, Sun Li, Ronald Cheng Wu Jing, Alex Fong, etc.

Despite having filmed numerous comedies like “A Chinese Odyseey,” Jeff Lau says he still hasn’t lost the comedic touch. He says “Kungfu Cyborg isn’t an imitation, so first, it’s not like “Transformers.” Second, it’s not like any type of superman. It’s a cyborg with uniquely Eastern traits.  Kungfu Cyborg is a trial with lots of special effects. If we don’t make more advances in special effects, we’ll be even further behind Hollywood.”

“Kungfu Cyborg” will air in the summer.
