Stills have been released for the upcoming historical romance drama Nothing Gold Can Stay 那年花开月正圆 starring Sun Li (Legend of Mi Yue) as the richest female merchant of the Qing Dynasty and Chen Xiao (Three Heroes and Five Gallants) as her love interest.
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.
Sword Master 三少爷的剑 has more posters. Directed by Derek Yee and produced by Tsui Hark, this production stars Lin Gengxin, Peter Ho, Jiang Yiyan, Jiang Mengjie, and Jiang Yiyan and seems to still be working out a new release date or something so the ones in the posters may not be correct…
More stills below the cut.
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.
It’s Weibo Wednesday time! I didn’t pay much attention to this year’s Academy Awards, which took place on February 28, but it looks like quite a few Chinese celebs did. Here we have Li Yifeng congratulating Leonardo DiCaprio for finally winning a Best Actor award. In case you’re wondering what is going on, he’s spoofing a scene in The Revenant where Leo gets attacked by a bear.
In other Hollywood news, Li Yifeng was picked as an ambassador for the superhero movie Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, which drops in the U.S. and in mainland China on March 25. However, I’m not entirely clear on what his being an ambassador entails. Yifeng also has two TV series — espionage drama Sparrow (麻雀) and xianxia drama Noble Aspirations (青云志) — expected to be released this year.
To say this Weibo Wednesday is a little overdue is a huge understatement, considering there’s a post dating back to Halloween LOL. But oh well, better late than never, right? Happy New Year to everyone, and let’s have a quick recap of the past two months.
Who is this cutie you’ve probably never seen? The answer is Tian Xinchen, the son of Tian Liang and the younger brother of Cindy Tian Yucheng. Wikipedia claims he was born on April 13, 2012, which would make him three years old, but that doesn’t explain why Tian Liang posted Xinchen’s birthday cake photo in early November.
Anyhoo, this is the first time (I believe) that we’ve gotten a look at Tian Liang’s son, so take a good look! He’s a real cutie.
Hello, everybody, let’s get to know one another! I am one in a family of four, and my most beautiful mother and sister prepared a cake for me. My ugliest father tried to steal the limelight from me, so I Photoshopped him out.
During this past round-up, our favorite celebrities celebrated the Mid-Autumn Festival (aka the Moon Festival) and got up to some other shenanigans. Kicking us off is Tang Yan and her picture-perfect moon cake. She’s currently filming the movie Bounty Hunter (赏金猎人) and will follow that up with the drama The Princess Weiyoung (锦绣未央). As always, keeping busy.
What flavor [of moon cake] did you all eat today?
