Just found a very interesting article written by renowned Singapore-born American photographer Russel Wong that is more than worth checking. It was posted about a year ago on Singaporian website YP.

In this article, Russel Wong describes the experience he had working with Ziyi when she was still very young and just starting in the business. He then shared some details about the few occasions he had photo sessions with her, as well as the friendship they developed over the years.

Even then, she had a twinkle in her eye and we were both ready to conquer the world! The rest, as they would say – is history. This would be one of the most important meetings I would have as it was a start to a long working relationship, numerous covers, movies and more importantly – a friendship.

We haven’t heard much about these two movies during the principal photography, but it seems the post-production on both Climbers and Godzilla vs. Kong just started.

The director Adam Wingard confirmed a few hours ago that the principal photography of Godzilla vs. Kong was now completed on his instagram account.

On April 8th, a crew member of Climbers annouced via his weibo that the filming had just wrapped in Tianjin and posted some selfies with the cast.


The Hollywood Reporter finally confirmed the participation of Ziyi in the Chinese blockbuster Climbers directed by Daniel Lee. She will star as the meteorologist alongside Wu Jing, Jackie Chan, Hu Ge and Jing Boran. The filming is currently underway and it shouldn’t be too long before we see some pictures of footages of the film.

The film will dramatize the real-life expedition of Chinese climbers Wang Fuzhou, Gonpo and Qu Yinhua, who made a historic ascent up Mount Everest’s North Ridge in 1960. The Chinese team was the first to successfully climb Everest’s north side, which is known to be especially perilous. The trio famously left a small statue of Chairman Mao atop the summit before returning midway down the mountain to rescue a fourth member of their team who was unable to complete the climb.


Alongside Wu and Chan, the two other climbers in the group will be played by popular young actor Jing Boran (Monster Hunt, Us and Them) and television star Hu Ge (Chinese Paladin, 1911). Actress Zhang Ziyi rounds out the star-studded cast as a Chinese meteorologist who assists the mission.


Happy birthday to our dearest Ziyi <3


Yesterday, Ziyi attended the 10th Macau International Movie Festival. The actress won the Best Actress prize for her role in Forever Young.


A second theatrical trailer of Godzilla: King of the Monsters was just released. Enjoy a few new (very short) shots of Ziyi with short hair.
