The Best of Times 最好的时代 focuses on the rapid growth of China’s metro networks from the late 90s to early 2000s, and stars Chen Xingxu (Goodbye My Princess) and Hu Bingqing (Queen Dugu) as young engineers. Yu Haoming, Wang Xueqi costar.
A Chinese trailer for “Iron Man” was released with a few shots of Wang Xueqi,Fan Bingbing. Watch it here.
On the one hand, I’m always happy to see more Chinese actors in mainstream media, but it’s frustrating to see a trailer where the Chinese characters are randomly inserted and obviously do not belong. In recent year, it seems like it’s become quite popular for movie to include Chinese actresses as minor roles in Hollywood films so as to use that person for extensive marketing in China. It would be nice if the degree to which those actresses are used as advertisement are actually proportionate to their relevance in the film.
