No comments: Links to this post

With on off fiasco with Terry Gilliam's proposed version of Don Quixote it's seems filmmaker Ah Gan has got there before him. This isnt a full on adaptation but a fantasy adaption of the classic Spanish book but based on the legendary Chang'an dynasty warrior.
I am really interested in seeing this but only in 2D NOT 3d (if you follow my Peoples Movies blog Im not a fan of 3D movies) The movie stars Gao Tuo, Karena Lam, Liu Ye and Wang Gang with no offical release date yet confirmed yet.

Trailer For Detective Dee and the Mystery of the Phamtom Flame Trailer

When I first spotted this trailer before I even looked at the link or what the movie was about it sounded like it was a scooby doo type movie and how wrong I was. The movies title ( Di Renjie - original name)  Detective Dee and the Mystery of the Phamtom Flame is enough to attract any one to find out more!.
D-project (its short name) stars Andy Lau (Future X-Cops, The Warlords) and Bingbing Li (the forbidden Kindom) in a Action crime thriller  as well been set not in modern day but 690AD. As if said many times on this blog the Chinese/Hong Kong know how to create period movies is spectacular fashion and this one is big!
This time last year I was in Guangzhou, China and everywhere you went as well on TV Andy Lau was everywhere on Pepsi & Shampoo billboards, tv ads he is big money ! He is actully remaking What Woman Want the Mel Gibson movie it seems to be a deal that some of the hollywood  movies to be remade into asian movies (theres a japanese version of Ghost coming too), well think about it Hollywood is always looking at the foreign movie market for new movies usually destroying them, so why cant it be reversed? dont blame them

Trailer For Chinese Period Comedy-drama The Dragon and Phoenix Inn

There's not anything I can say on this trailer but its for Chinese/ Hong Kong period comedy THE DRAGON & PHOENIX INN, which has Richie Ren and Barbie Hsu both big names in the chinese cinema. It does look like it has plenty of kong-fu action scenes, plenty of laughs and it does last nearly 5 minutes which isnt unusal for a chinese movie.
anyway no graphics so the trailer is there instead.
