Playlist of trailers and behind-the-scenes:
Dilraba and Shawn Dou star in The Saga of Light 日月, a rom-com retelling of the legend Hou Yi and Chang’e. Directed by Jin Yimeng, the film is the first I know of that puts them in semi-prehistoric gear rather than just hanfu.
Shawn Dou plays Hou Yi, an legendary archer who shoots down nine out of the ten suns to save the world. His reward was a pill of immortality that was instead eaten by his wife Chang’e (Dilraba), who became the goddess of the Moon. The film has just wrapped up filming and is set for a summer 2019 release.
Promotional tagline: “Time is limited, so please don’t hide.”
Shawn Dou (Tribes and Empires) is reuniting with the director of See You Again in upcoming romance drama Ten Years Late 十年三月三十日, a loose adaption of Fumi Saimon’s manga series Asunaro Hakusho. Nazha (Fighter of the Destiny) has joined the cast as the female lead.
It’s here! It’s finally here! Tribes and Empires: Storm of Prophecy, also known as the drama with the best trailers ever, is going to premiere tonight at 8pm (CN time) on streaming sites Tencent, iQiyi and Youku.
