[Movie] The Ghouls 鬼吹灯之九层妖塔 VS The Ghouls 鬼吹灯之寻龙诀

lwlj-chmifpz0109623

Both movies will be based on the novel 鬼吹灯 by Zhang Muyue. I do hope they have different story line though, since both movies have been filming during the same period and are said to be released one after the other ><.

Synopsis by Wikipedia:

Set in the 1980s, the novel follows former soldier Hu Bayi and his partner as they raid tombs in search of valuables. The two team up with an American archaeologist after they fall victim to a curse, and to release themselves from it they must seek clues found among ancient mythical sites in China and Tibet. The title is derived from an old Chinese saying, credited by the author to genuine grave robbers: “A human lights the candle and the ghosts blow it out.”

My opinion:

I think both casts looks awesome and I am anticipating for both. The Ghouls: Code of Dragon is more high profile, has a full A-list casting and front line coverage on news and fashion website. Tower of Ghosts has more B-List actors but looks just as gorgeous. Plus, their trailer seems really interesting and makes me really want to see it.
