Coming to cinemas this Thursday September 19 is Chinese comedy My Lucky Star, starring two actors who should need no introduction — Zhang Ziyi (Crouching Tiger, The Grandmaster, you know her well!) and Wang Leehom (Lust, Caution). Interestingly, it’s helmed by Hollywood director Dennie Gordon, who’s worked in American TV since the mid-90s, as well as directing New York Minute, What a Girl Wants and Joe Dirt.
Though it’s described in various press as a standalone production and not a sequel, Zhang (along with supporting actors Ruby Lin and Yao Chen) is reprising her role from 2009’s Sophie’s Revenge. Glamorous trips to Singapore, handsome super-spies (that’d be Wang, of course) and diamond heists ensue!
Here’s a trailer:
The film is screening in Mandarin (with English subtitles) in cinemas in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane and Adelaide.
