Tong Liya and Song Jia ready to take my heart on flight
Arthur Chen Feiyu as seen through his father’s eyes.
I don’t usually post these type of patriotic films since they’re usually just bad films, but the trailer for this actually looks really good. Me and My Motherland 我的我的祖国, a film celebrating the 70th anniversary of the founding of the People’s Republic of China in October, consists of eight parts separately shot by eight directors, ranging from veterans like Chen Kaige to rising talents like Wen Yan. Here’s what we know of the cast so far for each part:
Guan Hu (Mr. Six)– Ou Hao, Huang Bo, Wang Qianyuan
Zhang Yibai (Fleet of Time) – Zhang Jiayi, Zhang Ze
Xu Zheng (Lost in Thailand) – Liu Tao, Xu Zheng
Xue Xiaolu (Finding Mr. Right).- Du Jiang, Zhu Yilong, Gao Yalin
Ning Hao (Let the Bullets Fly) – Ge You
Wen Muye (Dying to Survive) – Tong Liya, Song Jia, Lei Jiayin
Chen Kaige (Farewell My Concubine) – Liu Haoran, Chen Feiyu, Tian Zhuangzhuang
Wen Yan (Angels Wear White) – Andy Lau, Zhuang Yinan
“Back in Time” not cool enough for Ni Ni? Come up with you own!
The film version of Cong Cong Na Nian匆匆那年 is calling for English titles with a reward! Can you come up with a better English title for the Zhang Yibai film starring Ni Ni (#beautiful), Eddie Peng, and Wei Chen?
It’s not often that actors retweetslash MV‘s of themselves, so when I saw Lu Yi and Ren Quan having an entire conversation reminiscing their friendship over The Blue Lotus 花样的年华 (cut version here and full version here), I immediately went and watched the series. The Republican era series, featuring custom made couture suits that made the two leads look oh-so-handsome, director-approved shipping, and a compelling heterosexual romance, is definitely worth a watch. Also, it uses original voices!
