Happy Sunday! A lot of projects released stills this week (I feel like a heavy promotion always makes the movie or drama less interesting once it actually comes out… is this just my opinion?) Oh well… For the entertainment update, a lot of casting news and stills!
First, some casting news!
Eddie Peng, Ni Ni, Zheng Shuang, Ou Hao, and Wenle Yu are going to star in upcoming movie Legend of Wukong… I know what you are thinking, China must be obsessed with Journey of the West! This must be the sixth movie in 2015 inspired by the famous story and I am not even sure I want to watch any of them… But hey, at least the stars of Fleet of Time are collaborating again!
Talking about these movies, The Monkey King 2 starring Gong Li, Feng Shao Feng, Xiao Shen Yang, Luo Zhong Qian, Guo Fu Cheng, and Kelly Chen released a short trailer:
Curious about how Liu Yifei and Yang Yang will look in their next collaboration Three Lives Three World Ten Miles of Blossom Flowers? Well, here is a very nice fanmade video of themselves in period drama, looking as good as ever!
Wang Kai has been announced as the male lead of Nirvana in Fire 2! He attended the press conference on the 19th November and declared all the casting will be changed and there will be a completely new set of characters.
Wu Lei (Nirvana in Fire) and Xiao Caijie (Chinese Paladin 5) have been casted for the new drama 奇星记之鲜衣怒马少年时, which can be loosely translated as The Journey of a Legendary Star. It tells the story of five rebellious teenagers during the Song Dynasty and their encounters with many hot blood situations.
New drama featuring the cast of Go Fighting!, To Be a Better Man released some official stills. It stars Sun Honglei, Lay, Jiang Shuying, Wang Yaoqing, and Guan Xiaotang.
Movie Oh My God went on Happy Camp this week-end and here are some official pictures of Chen Xuedong, Li Xiaolu (and her baby girl!!), and Lay:
And some stills, because… why not?
Mr. Six with Li Yifeng, Feng Xiaogang, and Kris Wu released more stills. Kris looks extremely skinny here. As for his fashion sense, let’s just say I will consider him as a fashion icon from now on…
Movie Fall in Love like a Star with Li Yifeng and Yang Mi released some stills:
I wanted to watch Border Town Prodigal for male lead Zhu Yilong, but it seems all the focus are on Viann Zhang. Based on the released stills so far, I am not too into the story yet.
There is new variety show with Li Yuchun and Shu Qi! X Fire follows the two stars as they experience new adventures in a kind of road trip format. Both are classy and beautiful women so this should bring a breeze of fresh air in the variety scene!
Movie Bad Guys Always Die is also set to premier soon!
