In China, Love is Not Blind has achieved the biggest opening box office for a local film this year. By Sunday night, the comedy had taken RMB188.0 million ($29.6 million) in six days.
The story tells of wedding planner Huang Xiaoxian's 33 days of heartbreak after discovering that her boyfriend has been cheating on her with her best friend. Her maybe-gay colleague Wang Xiaojian helps her back on her feet.

The costume heroine-themed war epic, "Legendary Amazons" recently released film clips exposing the lead actress Jin Qiaoqiao, who portrays a "Marksman" in the film.

Insiders report that Yang Zitong's scenes have been deleted from "The Legendary Amazons", unfortunately, due to the scale of violence in the film. Hopefully, her scenes will be restored in an unabridged Hong Kong version (?). She plays one of the Yangs and engaged in violent, bloody fights.

Yang Zitong, "You did what to my scenes!"

The romantic comedy "Love is Not Blind" has swept the mainland China's box office charts, while in Hong Kong, director Giddens Ko's romance "You are the Apple of My Eye" is making a history to by entering Hong Kong's Top 10 Box-Office Records.

A Chengdu media preview screening of Barbara Wong's "The Allure of Tears" left viewers satisfied but many described the film as more of a comedy, particularly the Joe Chen-Dou Xiao story. Director Wong said that she wanted to make a film for audiences to cry at but she did not achieve her purpose.

That's nice to hear about Kelly Chen being pregnant. :)

Always nice to see Lin Chiling and Zhang Ziyi. :)

I liked those photos of Gao Yuanyuan and the dogs. I wish there were more. One of my friends from China was surprised that I knew who Gao Yuanyuan was because her movies haven't been famous here in the US.

While no expert, I didn't think that "cranky" was in The Merck Manual of Diagnosis and Therapy.

Maybe it's in the Book of TCM. :D
