There’s a serious Chinese film release in Aussie cinemas this week: Thursday July 31 sees the release of The White Haired Witch of Lunar Kingdom (quite the title!), a big-budget 3D spectacular that will look hauntingly familiar to fans of 1993 classic The Bride with White Hair, since it shares the same source material.
This adaptation of the wuxia novel comes from experienced HK director Jacob Cheung, and stars Fan Bingbing in the lead, ably supported by Huang Xiaoming, Vincent Zhao and healthy doses of both wirework and CGI.
It’s showing nationwide, and according to distributor China Lion’s Facebook page you’ll be able to find both 2D and 3D sessions at cinemas.
Here’s the trailer:
