As previously mentioned, Meteor Shower 2 is — or was — looking for a second female lead to play Zheng Shuang’s love rival. And, they’ve found her: this past year’s super girl Tan Lina.
Last time I listed 10 out of the 17 movies that might be worth seeing this year. Now, we pick up where we left off with…
2010 looks to be an exciting year for the Chinese film industry. There is a fairly large selection lined up for the year to come and at first glance, the quality is reasonably proportional to the quantity. (There are a few I’m quite excited about.) Without further ado, let’s take a look.
This is by no means a comprehensive list, but a compilation of the more heavily marketed films with either well known directors or actors. The movies are sequentially ordered by release date, not by preference.
After an intense but perhaps unsatisfying season two, Liar Game is charging towards its final stage in full force.
Not only will LGT be uprooted for good, the movie promises an emotion packed psychological game of trust vs. deception — with a brand new ensemble — and a little of the much-anticipated “development” between the male and female protagonists (can’t say I’m too excited about that…).
Now, the previews:
Since banned in mainland China for her bold performance in Lust, Caution, Tang Wei has made the career transition to Hong Kong. After two years of low-profile activity and deliberate script selection — some say the lack of publicity is to preserve the mysteriousness of the actress — Crossing Hennessy will present a brand new Tang Wei as her comeback project.
