Ziyi announced yesterday that she will serve as an official ambassador for this year’s Hainan Film Festival. The opening ceremony is set for December 5th.
Ziyi was in Shanghai again to promote Clé de Peau Beauté. She also accepted an interview for Teacher Xu that you can watch in the Video Archives.
Ziyi made her first public appearance of the year in Shanghai. She was photographed on the red carpet of a Lanvin event. Some pictures and two videos were added.
Vogue China just published the pictures and the cover for its September edition in which Ziyi poses for a gorgeous and artsy photoshoot by Russian photographer Elizaveta Porodina. A short film promoting the magazine was also released.
Ziyi was busy lately filming various commercials. She was featured in a new TV spot for Feihe.
A new TV commercial for Clé de Peau Beauté was just released.
A teaser trailer for The Climbers was just released during the 22nd Shanghai Film Festival.
The Hollywood Reporter shared some details.
The actor, China’s reigning box-office king thanks to mega-blockbusters Wolf Warrior 2 and The Wandering Earth, bounded to the stage at a packed gala hosted by Shanghai Film Group to unveil the first official trailer for his next action spectacle.
The Climbers dramatizes the real-life expedition of Chinese mountaineers 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 heroically rescue a fourth member of their team who was unable to complete the mission.
The filmmakers also unveiled the release date for The Climbers. The film has lined up a nationwide release on Sept. 30, prime positioning on the eve of China’s patriotic National Day holiday period from Oct. 1-Oct. 7, which is expected to generate a box-office bonanza.
