Remember this photoshoot, where Zhao Liying sported the short bob and Kimi Qiao taunted Chen Xiao? The two will be starring in the upcoming movie Days of Our Own 我们的十年. The movie is supposed to tell of the best ten years of a person’s life – you have the “poser” played by Zhao Liying and the “engineer boy” (or rather, STEM major) played by Kimi Qiao Renliang, together with the “piano goddess” (Wu Yingjie) and a “career man” (Van Fan). A toast to another youth story!
The film will be released on September 2. A short trailer, and more stills underneath the cut. Continue reading →
It’s not enough to have a “Break-up guru?” We don’t know about box office figures yet, but upcoming movie The Break-up Artist 分手达人 will at least beat Yang Mi and Deng Chao’s movie to the screens, with a release date on June 6th. The movie uses “break-up” as its tagline, with a professional break-up artist who advertises “painless, ten-year guaranteed breakups” and reels in customers with her motto “Love, (then you’re) not fussy; No love, then break up!” Starring Fan Youchen (Van Fan) as the leading male, alongside Lin Peng as the female lead. The movie is produced by Jackie Chan.
Lin Peng’s character is the head of a break-up corporation in the film. She has also, in real life, started a sort of break-up corporation. She noted that “My company’s main enterprise is to safe-keep lovers’ mementos, and and also some of those unforgettable love stories.
