First Trailer for American-Chinese sci-fi film The Great Wall

Not sure how I feel about using The Great Wall of China as a protection barrier against monsters… The leader in this war is Matt Damon, and aided by Andy Lau, along with a healthy number of American and Chinese actors. While I’m not too excited to anticipate it, they do have many faces that I love, hence my shallow interest. Exposure is good! heh. The director is Zhang Yi Mou, ah, who did The Flowers of War and Coming Home these past two years.

Jerry Yan and Chen Qiao En cameo in youth movie Our Times

It’s been a long time since I squee this hard over the stills of a movie alone. SO MUCH CUTENESS abounds in this upcoming Taiwanese youth movie, Our Times, starring a wagon of fresh faces in a story we are well acquainted with in recent cinema trend – the highs and lows of emotional upheavals during those teenage years (here it is the 1990s), enhanced by prickly hormones and physical body changes.

Andy Lau becomes Boran Jing’s grief-stricken father in Lost and Love

If there was ever an award for the most recognizable star of the tv and film industry, Andy would get it.

In the upcoming film, Lost and Love, Andy Lau strips himself of make-up, tailored suits, guns, and spy missions to play a simpleton. Based on a true story of a child abduction case back in 2010, Andy plays a farmer whose child is kidnapped at the tender age of two. This begins a moving and raw journey of 15 years to reunite Andy with his adult son, played by Boran Jing. It’s amazing how I didn’t know who this kid was last year, but now he’s standing beside one of the most beloved actors to come out of Hong Kong in the past few decades. Me thinks this kid is going to places. Keep an eye on him!

NOTE: More stills added 1.28.15
