The second film from one of China’s best young directors, Li Fangfang (Heaven Eternal, Earth Everlasting), Forever Young 无问西东 has finally released a trailer after over five years . It’s tentatively set for a late 2017 release.
Starring Zhang Ziyi, Huang Xiaoming, Chang Chen, Wang Leehom, and Chen Chusheng, the ode to Tsinghua University focuses on the coming-of-age of the school and the nation as depicted through five of its students.

There are plenty of tears in the first teaser for A Life Time Love, the upcoming fantasy romance starring Huang Xiaoming and Song Qian as a pair of star-crossed lovers. Sheng Yilun rounds out the main love triangle as a powerful noble and the female lead’s husband.
Zhang Li and Shen Tai will have a tragic romance of their own, and it seems like Luo Yunxi and Wu Qian may be the only couple that gets their happily ever after.

The biggest news this week? Fan Bingbing and Li Chen announcing last Friday that they’re in a relationship. The two got close while filming The Empress of China (武媚娘传奇), though they didn’t portray a couple in that drama. This is the first time in her 19-year-long career that Fan Bingbing has publicly admitted that she was dating someone.
Their fairly low-key approach to announcing that they were dating — they simply uploaded a photo of them on Weibo with the caption “Us” — has been replicated throughout the Weibosphere in the few days since. Most of the usage has been tongue-in-cheek, such as Jiro Wang with the Incredible Hulk and a random netizen who somehow got actor Lee Pace to hold up fake marriage certificates with her.
Anyway, congratulations to Fan Bingbing and Li Chen, and I hope they don’t let all the rumors about their past relationships drag them down.
