Fighter of the Destiny releases teaser

It’s nice to see productions in all different genres coming through the works as opposed to every other drama being a palace period or any other of the genres that have been popular lately.

Fighter of the Destiny 择天记 has released more stills and a teaser.  Starring Lu HanGulnazarWu QianYao DiZeng ShunxiXu LingyueJu XianhaoZhang JunzhuGao HanyuChen Shu, and Eric Tsang, it seems like as of late, a decent production team is only covering the basics of what it takes to make a successful drama as other production teams ramp up on these regards.  Dramas with productions that may have once commanded hoards of fans and dominated ratings are finding it harder to do so with other productions in the line-up.

Ten Deadly Sins starts off a year of detectives

 Although this is like the fourth drama Zhang Han has produced, it's only the first one that's airing.  

Zhang Han’s just glad one of his four self-produced dramas is finally airing.

If you’re already paranoid by Brexit, just wait until you see the slew of psychopaths that the second half of 2016 will feature, starting with The Ten Deadly Sins 十宗罪.    Starring Zhang han, Yu Xiaotong, Eric Tsang, and newcomer Zhang Yamei, the series will air on July 20th on Youku.

Other upcoming detective series mostly focused on psychopaths include Wang Kai and Wang Ziwen’s When a Snail Falls in Love,  Yang Rong’s Memories Lost 美人为陷, Zhang Ruoyun and Jiao Junyan’s Medical Examiner Qin Ming 法医秦明 .  Upcoming films include Zhang Hanyun and Eddie Peng’s Operation Mekong, Liao Fan and Li Yifeng’s Evil Minds 心理罪, and the Alec Su-directed adaptation of The Devotion of Suspect X. 

The styling and cinematography is reminiscent of the classic Hong Kong cop films, with a nice blend of artistry and realism. The editing is creative, if not that suspenseful. But you can see for yourself:

Fighter of the Destiny begins filming

In the case of some of these more recent dramas, I really wish they took the money from making pretty character posters and re-allocated it to the actual production or costumes… since some things still… just look off to me… DX

Fighter of the Destiny 择天记 has started filming.  Starring Lu HanGulnazarWu QianYao DiZeng ShunxiXu LingyueJu XianhaoZhang JunzhuGao HanyuChen Shu, and Eric Tsang, this seems to be based on the novel of the same name by Mao Ni.

He sees you when you’re asleep, he knows when you’re awake, he’s not Santa Claus, just a detective on coke.

Okay, so it’s past Christmas, but since it’s still the holidays (Happy New Year’s Eve/ New Year’s, depending on your location!), here’s a cute set of posters and a few stills from comedy director Raymond Wong’s latest holiday flick, An Inspector Calls 神探驾到. The film stars Louis Koo, Zhang Han, Donnie Yen,  Eric Tsang, Karena Ng, Chrissie Chau, and Liu Yan.

Nic Tse Goes Bald For His New Film

u3124p28t3d2501753f326dt20090504004356

Nicholas Tse, who just released his purported “last” album, has begun filming for his new movie, Bodyguards and Assassins,  set in Hong Kong during the Qing Dynasty. Despite playing a rather bottom of the rung character, who is billed as “the rickshaw driver”, he is the lead of this star-filled, big-budgeted tale about many who protected Dr. Sun Yat-sen during a trip the famed leader took to Hong Kong in October of 1905 (the film title in Chinese is Besieged in October).
