My C/HK/TW Movie Watchlist 2014

In order of anticipation.

Every big name director is having an epic out in 2014.  This is already my shortlist, there are many I am not interested in but make good business sense.  Quite a few, I can not wait!

Three C movie Must-watch

They are not out yet, but I’ve fangirled them (one of them) for years.

一代宗师 The Grandmaster’s ‘final’ trailer is out and it looks soooo insanely amazing.  If u ever liked anything WKW/Tony Leung, you can’t help but be curious what they can come up with slaving 10 years over.  I’ve just watched a rare recent TVB interview of Tony, he confirmed the rumor he’s fought a few Wing Chun moves with Stephen Chow (who claimed he’s learned kung fu) at dinner, being so immersed in the character.

Bishonen, 14 years later

Remember the 1998 HKmovie introducing us the on and off screen bromance of Daniel Wu and Stephen Fung?

*Thanks to bluemoon I think I finally can do 2012 minus 1998 right!  It’s 14, NOT 24. XD*

They have been constantly collaborating throughout the years, starring in films together, starting a film company.  At TIFF this year, they have a movie to show: Tai Chi 0

The ‘steampunk-kungfu’ movie looks like a fun riot!  Daniel will play the noob bullied in his hometown to the point of seeking Tai Chi mastery in a village of Tai Chi masters.  United they must fight steampunk soldiers/outsiders.  It’s from the creator of Ip Man and Detective Dee, Stephen is the director.  Lets hope it’s more HG Wells x Ip Man than anything else.

On its promo rounds, Daniel is constantly asked by the reporters on Stephen’s new romance rumor w/ another Bishonen alum Shu Qi (the pair is reportedly moving in together and engaged).  Nth screams bromance like u need to tai-chi off the hawking eyes on ur Bro’s personal life.
The handsomest duo is also steaming up the pages of magazines.  I, for one, am appreciating the gorgeous a WHOLE lot!
