It’s kind of surprising that the movie is released at the same time in China.


On the Red Carpet dot com posted a new interview of Ziyi. You can watch 5 videos and read the article by clicking here.


The trailer of My Lucky Star has been released today!

I also added some screencaptures.


Yesterday, Ziyi was in Los Angeles to promote The Grandmaster. She visited the set of “Extra” and looked really elegant.

In the evening the actress attended the premiere of the film with Cung Le. Many gorgeous pictures has been added. Enjoy!
EDIT: 42HQ pictures added. Huge thanks to tamara obscura for her precious help.


During the promotion of The Grandmaster in New York, Ziyi was asked about her involvement in the sequel of Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon. She answered that she didn’t know yet if she would return for the sequel. A few hours ago, various sources confirmed that she was indeed in talks to reprise her role as Jen Yu.

Chinese actress Ziyi Zhang is in talks to reprise her role as badass warrior apprentice Jen Yu in the sequel to Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon, which will begin shooting in March 2014.

A source close to the film says Zhang’s part would be shot as flashbacks to explain what happened to her character. As previously announced by The Weinstein Company, Michelle Yeoh will return as Yu Shu Lien and Donnie Yen will star as Silent Wolf in the sequel, titled Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon — The Green Destiny. Yuen Wo Ping will direct; Ang Lee directed the original, which won the Oscar for Best Foreign Language Film in 2000. John Fusco is writing the screenplay, based on Iron Knight, Silver Vase by Wang Du Lu, book 5 in the Crane-Iron Pentalogy series on which the original film is based.

With Yuen Woo-ping directing, it is a possibility that Ziyi will join. They know each other very well, since he choreographed The Grandmaster.


Read a new interview of Ziyi by Women’s Wear Daily.

“We all know he has no script, but we build up the film on trust,” she continues. “I trust him, but we have no script, don’t know how long the movie [shoot] is, but he is the master. He gave me a map; I get on the train with him. I have no idea what the final destination is, but I knew there would be stops. Going on this journey, I slowly understand my character more and better.”
