    The third official trailer has been released for the upcoming XianJian QiXia Zhuan 5 game! The game is also set to release on 7th July 2011! What I particularly love about this clip is the battle music which starts playing at 1.15. It has a similar style to the other PAL in-game music with it’s own touch :D Watch and see for yourself:

    Meanwhile, a new clip has also surfaced on the net as a tribute to the other XianJian franchise. The opening clip features a 3D Zhao Ling’er falling from the sky into Li Xiaoyao’s arms :D The beautiful background music which plays is from XianJian QiXia Zhuan 5, but with vocals!

    Some screenshots taken from video:

    Wilson Yip’s (葉偉信) A Chinese Ghost Story (倩女幽魂), an adaptation of the 1987 classic, led the China box office last week with RMB72.5 million ($11.1 million) after six days on release.

    With its nationwide attendance crossing two million admissions, A Chinese Ghost Story secured approximately 48% of admissions (and 47% of the RMB box office) as the only new film on release in cinemas.

    The action-romance-fantasy opened on 19 April, three days earlier than originally scheduled, so as to give it additional headroom ahead of The Lost Bladesman (關雲長) after it moved its own release date forward.

    With “A Chinese Ghost Story” showing in cinemas, actress Liu Yifei is currently filming a new movie “The Four Great Detectives” 四大名捕. The film is based on the famous wuxia series written by Malaysian born Wen Ruian 溫瑞安 which he first started writing at the age of 19 years.

    In this adaptation, the leader of the four detectives, Heartless (无情)  is played by Liu Yifei and has a special affinity with small animals like birds, cats and dogs. In the original novel, Heartless is a man but in this movie adaptation she is now a female. According to director Gordon Chan’s blog, the original author, Mr Wen himself has approved the change in gender.

    The other three detectives are played by Collen Chou as Metal hand (铁手), Ronald Cheng as Life Chaser (追命) and Deng Chao as Cold Blooded (冷血).

    Filming commenced on 5 March 2011 and is expected to be completed in May 2011.
