ASIAN TUESDAY: MINDBLOWING TRAILER FOR CHINESE FANTASY "PAINTED SKIN 2: RESSURECTION" AND FOR CHINESE EPIC "HARA KIRI"!

Ah, my dear freaks, we've had a very dry period when it comes to movie news for a whole summer now, and it seems it's getting worse, so the only things I have to give you today are two Asian trailers, for two visually stunning epics.
PAINTED SKIN RESSURECTION
I've already introduced you with this film before, but now it is out worldwide and we have the second, marvellous and super stunning clip too: it is for PAINTED SKIN 2: THE RESSURECTION a rather stunning mix of vampire and fantasy film. According to demon lore, it takes hundreds of years to attain human form. Even then, lacking a human heart, a demon cannot experience the true pains and passions of existence. However, there is a legend that if a pure human heart is freely offered to a demon, it can become a mortal and
 experience true life. This obviously gorgeous film will be released in China this June, and will have a worldwide release later on. Apparently most of the actors from the first film are coming back but in different roles and in a different story. In the sequel, Wang Sheng (originally played by Chen Kun) and Wang Ying, son of Wang Sheng and Pei Rong (originally played by Zhao Wei) travel westward to explore and reencounter the fox spirit Xiao Wei along the way. The film looks like LORD OF THE RINGS in the eyes of Tarsem Singh :) It  could be the most magnificent Asian trailer I've ever seen in my life!

HARA KIRI TRAILER
Yet, another Asian film hitting theatres this July in USA is HARA-KIRI: DEATH OF A SAMURAI. From visionary auteur Takashi Miike
(13 ASSASSINS) comes the story of a mysterious samurai who arrives at the doorstep of his feudal lord, requesting an honorable death by ritual suicide in his courtyard. The lord threatens him with the brutal tale of Motome, a desperate young ronin who made a similar request with ulterior motives, only to meet a grisly end. Undaunted, the samurai begins to tell a story of his own, with an ending no one could see coming. With stunning cinematography and gripping performances, HARA-KIRI: DEATH OF A SAMURAI is a thrilling exploration of revenge, honor, and individuality in the face of oppressive power.

      don't waste your energy, sister, his idea of art is making sand castles in his litter box and you can imagine what he uses as the adhesive.....

    5. I wish you were just a figment of my imagination Cat, but you're not. You're real. As real as the smell of poo after the Hubby takes a really big shit and forgets to flush it.

    1. see the first one too, that's the bigger one!

  10. I feel sorry for anyone who doesn't give these films a chance, particularly Painted Skin because you'll be missing out on an epic cinematic experience. That and a look into a culture that is ancient, steeped in tradition yet is informed by Western culture. It's a perfect mix for enlightenment and pleasure.

    1. yep, you don't see that kind of creativity and imagination often at the big screens. Such a huge visual treat and plus there's the look into Asian mythology which is always fun and informative.

    2. The Fox myth's are one of my favorites along with the Toad myths. After that is the spirits of the Peach Trees. Would this film be classified as magical realism

      (My question mark key is broken too).

    3. those sound very mysterious, Annzie! Have you tried unplugging and plugging the keyboard from the computer or do we have to buy a new one? :)

  11. The premise of Hara Kiri sounds really interesting.

    ReplyDelete
  12. Both of these sound really intriguing. I'll have to keep an eye out for them.

    How are you doing? Are you surviving all this heat? I'm boiling right now. Too bad nothing is melting off, LOL. :)

    1. don't ask, sister Melsy, we've been having 117*F for the whole week and it will be hellish like that for whole July. And I can't believe our pounds aren't melting at such heat.... maybe we need some sexing up so that we would burn both inside and outside? Double attack on the pounds? Now, we only need some hunky pound burners....

    2. what are you laughing, sheriff, you and your fresh weather in Colorado :))

  13. These types of films aren't my cup of tea but my boys love them!

    I just read how hot it's been there...remind me not to complain about our near 100 degree heat. My poor, Dezzy!
