The Adventurers is a heist film with a Mission: Impossible feel about a team of thieves traveling around Europe, attempting to find pieces of a valuable necklace known as GAIA, while evading a French cop determined to catch them in the act. It stars Andy Lau (House of Flying Daggers, Infernal Affairs) and Jean Reno (The Professional, Mission Impossible). If you liked the Oceans 11, 12 and 13 or From Vegas to Macau movies, this will be right up your alley.
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
Another year of weibo night. To be honest, the awards seem to matter less and less each year. Show up? Here ya go. Beside the Weibo King and Queen of the Year, I didn’t really read about the others. Lol.
In the new action thriller, Sky on Fire (冲天火), Daniel Wu stars as a security agent tasked with protecting a group of scientists who created a drug that can extend one’s life. Multiple parties want a piece of the drug and whether it’s used for justice or for evil, depends on our agent and his crew. Thrown in the mix of life and death are Zhang Ruo Yun, Zhang Jing Chu, Amber Kuo, Joseph Chang, and Wayne Lai.
Hua Jiang Hu Zhi Bu Liang Ren (画江湖之不良人) is the drama adaption of a Wuxia animation series of the same name (like Qin’s Moon). The story takes place during the Tang Dynasty and revolves around a secret government agency trying to obtain a national treasure weapon called the dragon sword. To do that, they assassinated two great martial artists, leaving their kids to survive in the chaotic world. The kids are played by Zheng Ye Cheng, otherwise known as Hao Mei from Just One Smile is Very Alluring, and Li Chun (Hua Qiao Gu). They are taken in and taught martial arts by Elder Yang. In their journey in jianghu to uncover the conspiracy of the secret group, they meet the love of their lives in Cai Wen Jing and Fan Shi Qi.
The majority of the cast is related to Zhao Li Ying. It’s nice that everyone is branching off to do their own things.
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!
Three Body, is a film adaptation of the sci-fi novel, The Three-Body Problem, written by Chinese writer Liu Cixin. Set in the tumultuous years of the Cultural Revolution, the premise is about alien invasion and the government and scientists’ responses to this intrusion of their homeland by dividing into different factions. The humans are not all that innocent to begin with because a signal launched into outer space by a military project is captured by a group of desperate aliens on the verge of extinction. It gives them hope and the idea that coming down to Earth might save them. I’m planning on reading the translated English novel because I love sci-fi novels and the reviews sound positive! The star-studded film held a press conference today with its cast. Leading the pack is William Feng (King of Lan Ling) and Zhang Jing Chu(I Am Somebody, Honeymoon Hotel).
