Zhang Ziyi and Cecilia Chung are Caught up in a Chinese Dangerous Liaisons

28 October 2012 6:18 PM, PDT | Beyond Hollywood | See recent Beyond Hollywood news »

A few years ago Cecilia Cheung would be playing the Zhang Ziyi role. My, how times have changed. I guess it makes sense from a career trajectory (you can’t play the ingenue forever), but man, it’s still a shock to see her playing the older woman manipulating people around her (and apparently she’s only 1 year older than co-star Zhang Ziyi!). More notably, this Chinese version of “Dangerous Liaisons” is directed by South Korean helmer Jin-ho Hur, who was responsible for some monster hits in his native land, including “April Snow”, though my favorites are his more naturalistic dramas like “One Fine Spring Day” and “Christmas in August”. 1930s Shanghai: the glamorous, tumultuous “Paris of the East” whose salons, streets and bedrooms frame this Chinese adaptation of the French novel Les Liaisons Dangereuses. Aging socialite Mo Jieyu (Cecilia Cheung) still finds herself circling ex-boyfriend Xie Yifan (Jang Dong-kun). Even after years of separation, »

Psy Heads To Prestigious Film Festival

3 October 2012 6:16 AM, PDT | Huffington Post | See recent Huffington Post news »

Seoul, South Korea — Along with the now inevitable galaxy of stars promoting blockbusters from across Asia, this year's Busan International Film Festival will screen a North Korean film for the first time in almost a decade as well as six classic Afghan movies that were hidden in a wall to save them from the Taliban.

The continent's showcase film festival, a glitzy nine-day affair that opens Thursday, has become a way for Asian nations such as China and especially South Korea to highlight their rise in the world pop culture scene. This year's fest will even take a break from film for a performance by South Korean rapper Psy, who galloped to global fame with his song "Gangnam Style."

But films from two nations not normally on the radar of regional cinephiles are also drawing attention.

"Comrade Kim Goes Flying," which was co-directed by a North Korean and two Europeans, »

Zhang Ziyi Kicks Back at Sex Scandal Claims

31 May 2012 12:02 AM, PDT | NextMovie | See recent NextMovie news »

Everyone would do best to beware the fury of the star of "Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon."

Zhang Ziyi has vehemently denied the recent reports that claim she was missing from this year's Cannes Film Festival because she's under investigation for prostitution, according to Entertainment Tonight.

The Hong Kong news outlet Apple Daily is at the center of the story, which says that Ziyi was involved in lucrative sexual transactions with China's former Minister of Commerce, Bo Xilai, and several other political bigwigs introduced to her by Xu Ming, the founder and chairman of the Dailian Shide Group. The reports claim that these "meetings" earned Ziyi over $100 million from 2004 to 2007.

Ziyi's rep was quick to respond, promising swift legal action against the publication for their "lies" and demanding a complete retraction of their story.

"Zhang Ziyi has been busy working day and night on the set of 'The Grandmasters,'" they »

The Hong Kong news outlet Apple Daily is at the center of the story, claiming that Ziyi was unable to promote her upcoming film, Dangerous Liaisons in Cannes because she had been barred from leaving the country while under investigation for a sex scandal linked with China's former Minister of Commerce, Bo Xilai.

The paper alleges that a wealthy associate of the former Chinese official has confessed to paying Zhang nearly a million dollars in 2007 to have sex with her. She is also accused of sleeping with a myriad of other government officials and businessmen for large amounts of cash between 2004 and 2007.
