Wong Kar Wai’s The Gransmaster will open the 63rd International Berlin Film Festival. Ziyi will shine on the red carpet of the Berlinale the february 7th at 19:30 !
Yesterday, we learnt a quite bad news. Indeed Wong Kar Wai has cut his film even more for the Berlin film festival. Disappointment !
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Hong Kong director Wong Kar Wai has excised a further 15 minutes out of his new martial arts epic The Grand Master, ahead of its international debut at the Berlin International Film Festival this coming Thursday.
Finaly Wild Bunch released a beautiful new trailer of The Grandmaster with new footages. Enjoy !
Sina has realesed a music video and some stills of a new romantic comedy called “Better and Better“. Ziyi made a cameo in the film but we don’t know wich character she plays ! The film will be released february 10th 2013. Enjoy the first stills, a poster and a music video.
The cast of The Grandmaster attended a promotional event in Beijing to support the film where they discuss about the movie and its success.
The Grandmaster is doing very well at the chinese box office. It’s actually the most successful Wong Kar Wai’s movie!
Wong Kar-wai’s The Grandmasters secured162 million yuan (US$26.1 million) on Chinese mainland in its first six days in cinemas last week, a record for the Hong Kong-based director.
The film’s budget is believed to have risen to 240 million yuan (US$38.6 million) over its long production period, with Wong finishing the film just 72 hours before its release. Its first press screening was held two days before it opened in China.
Playing in four different versions – in a mix of different Chinese dialects, with and without English subtitles – it notched up US$168,000 (HK$1.3 million) on its opening day for distributor and co-investor Sil-Metropole Organisation Ltd.
By Sunday night, its box office climbed to HK$8.06 million (US$1.04 million), an impressive start for a Chinese-language film of any dialect in Hong Kong.
Ziyi attended the Annual Sina Ceremony today, alongside Sophie’s Revenge 2 co-stars’ Wang Leehom and Yao Chen, she won the prize of the personality of the year.
Ziyi was also asked about her plans for 2013, she told the press that she will be working with John Woo. Glad to hear that the project Love an Let Love is still happening. The filming will probably start very soon…
