With the drama section (Magnolia Awards) over with, here is the stars strutting it out for their upcoming movies! SO MANY. I’m drowning in pretty pics. The men are wicked awesome tonight. Usually they have on boring, routine stuff, but tonight, they shine more than the ladies, in my humble opinion. XD
Not much going on in dramaland but music land? Everyone and their grandmas decided to drop a single this past week. Lol. I keep on pushing this batch back and removing bullet points to make individual posts. It’s been…two weeks now? But yes, lots of news.
Another compilation and I would like to call it Part 3 to the busy weekend and probably the most exciting one for everyone! Things in motion! Trailers! Teasers! Previews! BTS! The Making! Some of these are revealed before the festival and some after. It’s crazy how many press conference took place this past weekend. Have a sneak peek/feel of your anticipated movies!
Time to check back with the movie Three (三人行) directed by Johnnie To (Contemporary Musical Design for Living, Drug War, Blind Detective) starring Zhao Wei, Wallace Chung, and Louis Koo in a thrilling cat-and-mouse story. Wallace plays the villain and he wreaks havoc after being injured during a chase and admitted to Vicki’s hospital. Louis is the cop determined to put the cray-cray man behind bars. Together, they discover their startling connections of the past.
Formerly known as the Deadly Reclaim (I like this title better!), now it’s called Call Of Heroes. The odds are against our villain played creepily by Louis Koo (Triumph In The Sky Movie) if the whole village is keen on his execution, led by Sean Lau (The Vanished Murderer) and joined by Eddie Peng (Legend of Wong Fei Hung), with solid action star in Wu Jing (SPL II: A Time For Consequences) and Sammo Hung as the action director. Now these actors are already up there in age so can we please get some fresh faces in the cinema world of Kung Fu? I don’t know, someone like Ashton Chen? If these actors have been playing similar roles for years, so can he! I don’t care anymore at this point. Lol.
Looks like the next IT boy receiving casting love calls left and right is William Chan (Legend of the Ancient Sword, The Legend of Zu). I’m not sure I like this… The original did bring fame and attention to the rising group of newbies led by Louis Koo and the talented Kwong Wah. When I was younger, I liked A Step Into The Past a lot… Time travel was a novel idea back in the days and who knew TVB was the pioneer of many things ages ago (heh). A Step Into The Past is an ancient drama produced by TVB in 2001; the story is based on a novel of the same name by Huang Yi and follows a police officer (Louis) as he travels back in time to the warring periods of China and gets involved in many historical events leading to the unification of China under the Qin dynasty. Raymond Lam played the first emperor of Unified China, aided by Louis along the way.
