I bear bad news about Legend of the Ravaging Dynasties 2 爵迹2 which was initially scheduled to premiere on July 6, 2018. With its predecessor failing to live up to the hype, there was already the question of whether a sequel would get made in the first place. Then there was light at the end of the tunnel when the movie did get made and promos swung into full force for the upcoming premiere.
We’ve only got less than two week until the date, but alas, it was just announced that the movie has been postponed along with a curt explanation citing issues with production. Author, director and writer Guo Jingming expressed his dismay via social media as he posted a picture of himself standing inside a dark and gloomy theater completely alone.
It’s unfortunate really. I was waiting for this, and the visuals have pretty impressive. It stars Fan Bingbing, Kris Wu, Cheney Chen, Jelly Lin Yun, William Chan, Amber Kuo and TFBoys Roy Wang Yuan, Jackson Yi Yang Qian Xi and Karry Wang Junkai.
Update: L.O.R.D.2 will finally be released on December 4, 2020.
