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
What a casting and that is only the tip of the iceberg! In the veteran line-up, we have Tony Leung Ka Fai, Ray Lui, Jiang Wen Li, and Nina Paw! The movie marks the 20th anniversary of Hong Kong’s return to China (after more than a century of British colonial rule) and it follows teacher-turned-guerilla-fighter Zhou Xun during the Japanese occupation of Hong Kong in the 1940s. How the youths struggle and fight in wartime resistance groups.
That’s one heck of a long project. I can’t imagine filming for something for that long, you’ll get so attached to playing the given character! On the other hand, they used the production created sets well….now let’s hope it a ratings success for everyone’s effort! Highness Qianlong Emperor Wallace Huo and his OTP in Zhou Xun as Ru Yi and the depiction of their love story over….many dead bodies obstacles. Even best friend Chen Kun congratulated Zhou Xun on weibo, it’s been that long. 90 episodes of epic prettiness and show-off in claws and green monsters in the harem! I know Miss Peach and Coralie have already signed up to watch! Are you in that list? Lol.
Chen Kun left the small screen for nine whopping years?! That seems to be the route most actors of the 90s and 2000s took on after they made a name for themselves. Who would want to return to the long shooting and hectic schedule of tv filming? Anyway, he is now back with original spy drama, The Escapee (脱身者), whose script is said to have been polished for a number of years. They expect a rise in TV series quality with the return of Chen Kun. Lol? What kind of expectation is that to place on an actor?! His rumored leading lady is Li Xiao Ran (Sparrow) and he has worked with her before. I’m hoping for a new pairing! Just don’t place him next to someone 20 years younger (he’s 40?!!). Lol.
Wallace has a kid coming, how will he manage the busy and very beautiful harem of flirty looks? Ru Yi’s Royal Love In The Palace (如懿传) drops its first batch of stills a few hours ago, including only 6 lovely ladies of about 23. Palace intrigues were never this bountiful in beauty before. Shaving your head is worth it, Wally!
