Butterfly Lovers to premiere
The classic tale, "Butterfly Lovers" goes on screen across China on September 11th. The film is eagerly anticipated by audiences and film critics. Directed by acclaimed Hong Kong director Jingle Ma, the film stars some of the hottest pop icons on the Chinese entertainment scene. They're Wu Zun, Charlene Choi and Hu Ge to name a few.
The story is loosely based on the classical Chinese love tale of the same name. Director Ma has added some touches of his own - like Kung Fu. The film's title is literally translated as “Sword Butterfly”.
Zhu Yanzhi is the daughter of a wealthy family whose fortune comes from the pottery trade. She's vivacious. Her nature is unclouded and she loves to play all day. Life changes when she meets Liang Zhongshan.
Zhu Yanzhi disguises herself as a boy to follow this attractive young man to a school of Kung Fu. Acclaimed Hong Kong action choreographer Ching Siu-tung directs the martial arts sequences.
HAHAHA! Wu Chun's hair looks funny!
