Zhou Dongyu, Ni Ni, Yuen Woo Ping and Tsui Hark participated in a photoshoot themed around their upcoming movie The Thousand Faces of Dunjia 奇门遁甲 and the ensuing stills are enchanting, eclectic and an exquisite mesh of traditional and modern. If fashion editorials are going to be the new way for films to be promoted, then please keep them coming because it’s a feast for the eyes.
I think it’s quite interesting that the focus is not only on the stars but also on the production team. Action choreographer and filmmaker Yuen Woo Ping who is more often behind the scenes is seen in action while the pictorial with Ni Ni has both Yuen Woo Ping and Tsui Hark blending in perfectly to make a beautiful canvass.
This is why well-executed promos work. I was initially discounting the movie as yet another overhyped big-budget blockbuster movie because there are certainly no shortage of those, but a brainchild of Yuen Woo Ping and Tsui Hark is always going to be worth a try. It premieres in China, Australia and New Zealand on December 15, 2017. See here for the list of theaters.
