Song of Phoenix releases diarrhea of stills

First there were too few stills… now there’s too much! WAY too much!!

Song of Phoenix 思美人 has released more stills… a diarrhea of them to be precise.  Starring Ma Ke, Zhang Xinyu, Yiyang Qianxi, Qiao Zhenyu, Du Chun, Liu Yun, Lan Xi, Lee Hyunjae, Yin Zhusheng, Fu Yiwei, and Wang Yuelun, since I am tired of seeing these saved on my computer, I thought I would take the liberty of purging, to the delight or horror of whoever is following at the moment.  You can probably expect Song of Phoenix posts pretty consistently for the next few weeks.

Seven Snail Shots that Surpass Silver Screen Standards

Number 10. This wallpaper worthy crime scene.

Number 7: This wallpaper worthy crime scene.

Creative angles and moving shots give  the When a Snail Falls in Love  trailer a film feel that I love. Here are my favorite shots and/or scenes from the trailer.

The  series is only 15 episodes and director Zhang Kaizhou promised a faster pace, better crime-solving, more combat, more soul, and less romance compared to the original. Let’s hope he delivers.  There is also a big train fight scene in Myanmar that should be a hoot.

I will shot someone if they don’t change the super misleading title.

Daylight Entertainment has the best trailers.  They can build up suspense even where the actual series fails. Their latest work is detective series When a Snail Falls in Love 如果蜗牛有爱情 starring Wang Kai and Wang Ziwen in their third drama together.  The trailer looks great as usual, with movie-leveled cinematography, actually decent action sequences, and some moments of cuteness injected in the midst of suspense.

The series is based on the book of the same name by author Ding Mo and directed by Zhang Kaizhou (two of the three people behind the spectacular fail of Love Me If You Dare). Luckily, the scriptwriter is not Hai Yan, who can’t write for the screen to save her life.  If anything, it’s only 15 episodes, which hopefully means it’s faster-paced.
