Three films to screen in N. American theaters


Pick us over the other two films! We brought Elsa, dreadlocks, and the Cheshire Cat back to ancient China.

Zhong KuiSnow Girl and the Dark Crystal (Chen Kun, Li Bingbing, Winston Chao, Yang Zishan) began screening in selected U.S. theaters on Feb. 27th.  I’m guessing that the run has ended for most places, but it can’t hurt to check. Check times here and read the review by Variety’s Maggie Lee here.

The White Haired Witch of the Lunar Kingdom (Fan Bingbing, Huang Xiaoming)  –  FREE in selected U.S. cities via Well Go USA. More information on airing times here, and review here. The film is in general not hightly-rated, but you get to see the leads’ gorgeousness on the big screen, and hey, it’s free so why not.

Lost and Love 失孤 (Andy Lau, Jing Boran)‬ screens with China on March 20th as a rare not-super-commercialized film distributed by China Lion Film in the U.S. and Canada. Read the overall positive review by Variety’s Maggie Lee here. More on screening information here. I’m mostly giddy that baby Jing got good reviews, and sad it’s not airing near a theater near me.

Although it soft-pedals the dire situation of human trafficking in China, the result provides poignant insight into the victims’ psychological scars. …Jing, on the other hand, outshines the rest of the cast by not sweating it, limning small-town insouciance while hinting at deep emotional scars.

You know, usually people (and dogs) do this with things that are suppose to go in your mouth, like  spaghetti. This is a  gratuituous Love Across Time Time screencap

  1. Is that a Xmas tree on Li Bingbing’s head? Some of the costume designs for period dramas are getting more and more absurd.
