Sword Master 三少爷的剑 is aiming to get released on December 1st.  Directed by Derek Yee and produced by Tsui Hark, this production stars Lin Gengxin, Peter Ho, Jiang Yiyan, Jiang Mengjie, and Jiang Yiyan and marks something I wish we would see more of: a wuxia movie.

Nicky Wu to Release First Solo Album in 13 Years

Nicky Wu Journey album cover

Though Nicky Wu started off as a member of The Little Tigers band and has been involved with the soundtracks of many of his projects, his last solo album release was in 2003, which was basically an EP collection of a few drama theme songs. Now, thirteen years later, he is preparing for the release of Journey (旅程), which will include his duet with wife Liu Shishi.

Scheduled for release this month, Journey will be Nicky’s 16th solo album (17th if you include the aforementioned EP). Recording for the album had actually already been completed more than a year ago, but because Nicky and Shishi’s wedding ceremony was delayed until this past March, the album’s release was also pushed back to April.

So far, I have yet to see an official confirmation of Journey‘s tracklist, but it’s a sure bet it will include “Hand in Hand” (手牵手), the song that Nicky and Shishi recorded together to celebrate their marriage. The song’s MV was recently released, and as expected, it features a lot of hand-holding, along with a dose of smooching at the end.

Tsui Hark, show them how it’s done!!

The Third Master’s Sword 三少爷的剑 (I am sure they will have a better English title sometime soon) has released a teaser, marking Tsui Hark‘s return to the wuxia genre.  Starring Lin Gengxin, Peter Ho, Jiang Yiyan, Jiang Mengjie, and Ren Qingan, this seems to be based on the novel by Gu Long.
