STUNNINGLY EPIC TRAILER AND POSTERS FOR 'WHITE HAIRED WITCH OF LUNAR KINGDOM' WITH FAN BINGBING! NETFLIX TO AIR ENGLISH VERSION OF 'EMPRESSES IN THE PALACE' EPIC TV SERIES

THE WHITE HAIRED WITCH
EPIC TRAILER AND POSTERS
We're having an Asian invasion day at HOLLYWOOD SPY today, people, since I have two mighty powerful Chinese projects to present you with, starting with last year's Chinese blockbuster THE WHITE HAIRED WITCH OF LUNAR KINGDOM with gorgeous Fan Bingbing in the lead role! Directed by Jacob Cheung, this epic fantasy spectacle is based on popular Chinese novel by Liang Yusheng.


FAN BING BING IS A SORCERESS
In the twilight of the Ming Dynasty, the Imperial court is plagued by corruption as tyrants rule over the land. With the Manchurians preying on a weakened empire, war is imminent. To save the victims from their suffering, sorceress Jade Raksha fights the soldiers that oppress people for their own gain. As payback, local government officials decide to pin the murder of her lover Governor Zhuo Zhonglian on Jade, turning her and the members of her cult into wanted fugitives for a crime they didn't commit. After that her hair turns white from sadness and she transforms into a killing machine without remorse or mercy.



EMPRESSES IN THE PALACE
NETFLIX TO AIR THE LAVISHLY EPIC CHINESE TV SERIES
Another lavish Asian project that you can expect to watch soon is Chinese epic TV series EMPRESSES IN THE PALACE which is the first Chinese series to be broadcast in mainstream paid TV cable network in the US! Netflix will turn its epic 76 episodes into six 90 minutes long English language mini series episodes. With Sun Li playing the lead role and Chen Jian Bin as the emperor, the series follows a young woman born of Eight Banners family who marries the Emperor. After surviving through many murderous scandals and betrayals, she prevails as the most powerful woman in the Emperor's harem, the Empress dowager. In the process, she transforms from a kind-hearted, clever girl to a power hungry, manipulative woman.

    2. Such a beautiful song. I watched that movie all the time when I was a little girl. I was happy to see that both of my girls loved it as much as I did, so I've seen that movie hundreds of times over the years.
