South Korea was not one of the lucky countries where Three (三人行) was released last summer, but I wanted to see Wallace in the film so badly that I decided to fly to Hong Kong to watch it. I was not a big fan of crime thrillers or Johnnie To, nor Three was an easy or friendly movie—it took me three views to finally get a grasp of it!—yet it was totally worth the trip and all its cost! After watching it, I came to like Johnnie To and of course to like Wallace even more! Three finally landed on Korean soil in early October at Busan International Film Festival and I watched it for the fourth time, which finally got me down to write a much belated review. Continue reading A Review of Three (三人行）
June was a month of unalloyed bliss for the Wallace Chung fans all over the world. If you got a little depressed earlier this year because you didn’t get to see Wallace in the news as often as you desired, you wish was granted in the month of “Zhong”—doesn’t Wallace’s last name in Mandarin Chinese sound a lot like “June”? Wallace won his first best male actor award at the Shanghai International Film Festival, graced the premieres and press conferences for his latest works, and turned dozens of road shows of “Three” into jovial fan meets. Plus, he caught up with the latest technology adored by China’s entertainment world, “live stream,” to connect with his beloved fans.
May has come to an end, Wallace spent most of his time filming General and I. June is coming with all the movies that Wallace had filmed last year. Are you ready to watch Wallace on the big screen? I sure am! (although some of us need to wait longer for the movies to reach our local cinema.) Continue reading MAY 2016 NEWS UPDATE
This month is a happy month for me because of the MV release, movie trailers, drama confirmation and weibo update. Although Wallace did not make any public appearance, his project updates were everywhere!
Another month has passed. Here’s the October updates on Wallace.
The movie will premiere on 16th July in Hong Kong and China, 17th July in Vietnam and on 23rd July in Malaysia, Singapore & Australia. Before that they’ve had the private premiere in some big cities in China but Wallace only attended the one in Shanghai. If you live anywhere near a Chinatown, you’ll probably get to watch this movie in the cinema. Don’t worry, I am pretty sure it has English subtitles. Thus do go to the cinema to support Wallace as well as the movie since more than USD40m was used to make it so I am sure it’ll look better on the big screen. This is a film where you can enjoy with your family or friends. Also, you can watch this movie in Cantonese but I don’t think it is Wallace’s voice 😦
Won: Are you Wallace’s fans ready for this movie? I am!!! If you are worried about the CGI, well rest your mind, as “Monster Hunt” director Ramen Hui had co-directed many other famous projects including : “Shrek the Third”, “Kung Fu Panda: Secrets of the Furious Five”, “Scared Shrekless”, and “Puss in Boots:The Three Diablos.” However, this movie would still mark as Hui’s big directorial debut.
” The movie is based on the Chinese classic supernatural collection of 500 stories called Strange Tales From a Chinese Studio. Set in a fictional world where human has raged war against monster for generations, the story begins with the birth of Woba, the last royal bloodline of the monster king, and centers on his quest to bring unity to the two races with the help of characters played by Bai Baihe and Jing Boran.” Source: Hollywood Report
