Ziyi attended this year Shanghai Film Festival. She was the only cast member attending the press conference promoting My Lucky Star.

Later the same day, she assisted the Bona Lucky Night at Peace Hotel.

The chinese release date for My Lucky was announced during the press conference. It will hit theaters in September 19th this year! They released a new trailer with drawings in sand…

On june 14 Ziyi arrived at South Korea Incheon International Airport with Tony Leung to attend the Chinese Film Festival in Korea.

Indeed, Wong Kar Wai’s “The Grandmaster” was the opening film of the festival (official website). The cast was reunited to attend a press conference and the premiere of the film.

Yesterday, Ziyi attended the Moschino Spring/Summer Show in Shanghai.

The next John Woo film might start shooting very soon. It was previously announced that it would begin in july, which still seems to be true. Apparently, Chang Chen, Andy Lau and Louis Koo won’t star in the film. They will be replaced by Takeshi Kaneshiro and Huang Xiaoming.

In the past weeks, we’ve worked hard on new pages for the site. We’re now glad to publish two of them : Singer, where you can watch all the “musical” apparences of Ziyi and Cover Girl, a page dedicated to all the magazine covers that Ziyi did.

I’ve updated the gallery with various pictures from the last few weeks. First, I’ve added everything I could find for Ziyi’s participation to Chinese’s X-Factor: Promotional Pictures and pictures from various shows. Ziyi also was in Tokyo in the end of May to promote the Grandmaster. Finally, I’ve added pictures from a candid when Ziyi was at Cannes this year.

Ziyi walked on the red carpet for the premiere of Jérôme Salle’s Zulu at the Cannes Film Festival today. She was gorgeous as usual in her floral dress signed Christian Dior!

Later, she announced the winner or the Camera d’or prize (for the best first film) with Agnes Varda during the closing Ceremony. The Prize went to singaporian drama Ilo Ilo, directed by Anthony Chen. Chinese author Zhangke Jia won the prize of the best screenplay for his film A Touch of Sin. Abdellatif Kechiche’s Blue is the Warmest Colour/La Vie d’Adèle eventually won the Palme d’or!

With the end of this year’s Cannes Film Festival, it won’t be long until the trailer for My Lucky Star is released…

Along with the other members of Un Certain Regard’s jury, Ziyi attended the premiere of ‘La Venus A La Fourrure’ directed by Roman Polanski.

The prizes for the category Un Certain Regards were announced after the screening of ‘La Venus A La Fourrure’. Here’s the winners…
