China’s Film Stars are spread out all over Asia! I decided to do a quick photo post to locate all of them…first is Pusan, because not that many Chinese people that went, and also it came first chronologically, so it’s easier to just get it out of the way.
I’m unfamiliar with Fashion Weekly (风尚志) magazine, but I guess these are for Wheat promotions? Wheat’s not doing very well at the box office, trumped not only by Jian Guo Da Ye (The Founding of a Republic) and Feng Sheng (The Message), but also by My Fair Gentleman, which is getting very positive reviews for both the movie and the acting from Sun Honglei and Kelly Lin (Lei Zu He!), and a sequel is already in the works.
I’m again backlogged with posts I want to do, so going to try to catch up from this past week and may be going in reverse chronological order.
I knew I had forgotten at least one movie in my previous post, and Wheat‘s one of them. It also opens on the 28th; My Fair Gentleman has some really stiff competition. This is the comeback movie of director He Ping, whose last movie was 2004’s well-received Warriors of Heaven and Earth.
Huang Jue is probably unknown to anyone who doesn’t follow Chinese dramas, but he gained a popularity boost this yearwith the series Qing Cheng Zi Lian. He’s always had some fame though. His last film was rock movie Air Diary with Xu Fei (yeah…I had no idea either, but I like the theme song). And I’m sure you know Fan Bingbing from a gazillion different things this year . I wonder if she is tired of shooting movies or photoshoots yet. Probably not. I wish I had her energy.
Trailer for wheat, a quote from Huang Jue on Fan Bingbing, and more pics behind the cut.
