Trailer of Chinese movie The Sorcerer And The White Snake, starring Jet Li, Eva Huang, Raymond Lam, Charlene Choi, Wen Zhang and Vivian Hsu etc.
For the lulz. Probably the three biggest Chinese names in terms of global recognition; couldn’t find any pictures of the trio together though…
Official movie trailer for The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor, starring Brendan Fraser, Jet Li, Maria Bello, John Hannah, Luke Ford, Michelle Yeoh, Isabella Leong and Russell Wong etc. The film will hit the cinema in North America on August 1…
The trailer seems promising; probably a bit bitter to swallow for Chinese as their culture are being westernised completely (e.g. Chinese dragons aren’t supposed to look like that etc.), but from entertainment point of view, it should be a decent movie.
Starlet Isabella Leong is making her Hollywood debut with the movie, but her role seems almost negligible in the trailer. Hopefully she can still charm the audiences with her limited appearance. Michelle Yeoh seems cool though.
