FBA: Anticipated films lock China dates

Wong Kar-Wai’s martial arts drama The Grandmasters will open on 18 Dec.

Jackie Chan, along with other cast members, will attend the Cannes International Film Festival this May.

He attributed this to film investors’ aversion to risk and the lack of perseverance among younger filmmakers and artistes.

“This gap in the Hong Kong film industry is very obvious both in front of [the camera] and behind the scenes.”

Miriam Yeung, said, “I am about to give birth, and this will be my last movie before I do so. Of course it’s better to go to the movies than staring at the monitor at home. Watching a movie with friends and popcorn is much better. I have many single friends who immediately have dates after watching this movie, you have to believe it.”

She added smilingly, “If you go a few more times I guarantee you will be a parent!”

Fan Bingbing attended the press conference as a guest. But do not be surprised if she is also cast in Iron Man 3.

“I asked Steven Spielberg, who is a friend, to read the English script and recommend actors,” Zhang said at a press conference following the premiere.

Flowers’ female lead, newcomer Ni Ni, put herself out on a limb when asked if she felt a steamy scene between her character and Bale’s was necessary, as in Ang Lee’s Lust, Caution — which had its sex scenes removed and earned a two-year industry ban for actress Tang Wei.

Movie Review: ‘White Vengeance’ (CRI)

We Chinese are weird, weird people. We always expect something extra out of what we do. And that extra is a big deal. For example, when ancient historians wrote history, they were not content with just recording exactly what had happened, so they embellished it to show off their literary talent. The result is that we now read these historical records as literature - good literature though - without knowing for sure what exactly happened.

Another example: When we watch a movie, we not only expect it to be entertaining, but also want it to be educational. If it’s a historical film, we want it to reflect history as it was, although there is no way of ascertaining which version is the true one, because the historical records are more literary than realistic.

Gentle office rom-com of sexual misunderstandings does the business.
