Daniel Wu uncomfortable with strangers so actress Zhou Xun does intimate scene herself

Saturday September 16, 2006 Singapore | 22 septembre 2006

IF Zhang Ziyi is fire, Zhou Xun is, well, a block of wood.

That's if you ask their hunky co-star Daniel Wu, who gets caught between them in Chinese director Feng Xiaogang's tragic epic, The Banquet. But Daniel, who was in town yesterday to promote the film, was quick to explain himself. 'I don't mean wood in the usual way (read: nerdy), but in the sense that it looks simple,but actually contains lots of details.'

Unlike the vivacious Ziyi, who commands attention when she enters a room, the more subdued Zhou Xun would slip in quietly, he said in Mandarin.'You won't even notice she's there, but she would be there observing people,' he said at a media gathering at Oriental Hotel. He would know. This is the second time he's teaming up with Zhou Xun. They had previously acted together for the yet-to-be-released Hong Kong film Ming Ming. And he and Zhou Xun, both Libras, apparently clicked like two peas in a pod - or rather, an iPod.The San Francisco-born Daniel, 32, told The New Paper that they once looked at each other's iPods and found the contents uncannily similar. 'It's so weird, because she grew up in China and I, in America, but there were so many songs she had that I also had. We both like alternative music.'

During filming, Zhou Xun, 30, also made a huge sacrifice for Daniel. She plays a naive general's daughter betrothed to a brooding prince (Daniel) and she bares her back for a love scene in which the anguished prince pounces on her. The director had arranged for a body double for her, but Daniel said that he felt uncomfortable doing it with someone he didn't know. 'Zhou Xun saw how awkward I was after the first take, so she decided to do the scene herself.'


Unlike the introspective prince who suppresses his emotions, Daniel said he is an expressive person who has no problem displaying his emotions. For example, a few months ago, he and his Alive bandmate Terence Yin had a small fight on their blog over some video footage.

He also expresses his frustrations by doing a physical workout. Said Daniel, who has been trained in wushu since young: 'I usually rely on exercise... Punching a sandbag is a good way to vent.' But while he is vocal with his buddies, Daniel claims to be 'stupid' when it comes to affairs of the heart.

When asked if he had ever had two girls fighting over him - which happens in the movie - he laughed and said: 'If there is, I wouldn't know. I'm quite dense when it comes to
relationships. 'Even if a girl were to show her affections for me obviously, I wouldn't realise it. I find it hard to tell whether she wants to be my friend or lover and it'd be so awkward if I get it wrong!'

Daniel, who is reportedly dating Eurasian supermodel Lisa S, said that between two people, respect for each other is important. In the movie, his character's two lovers are both so besotted with him that they are willing to die for him. Ziyi plays his childhood sweetheart who marries his father and becomes the empress. So who does Daniel think is prettier, Ziyi or Zhou Xun?

His diplomatic reply? 'Both are pretty, but they have their own appeal. Ziyi sparkles, while Zhou Xun has more character and style.

The Banquet opens in theatres here today.



Zhou Xun shoots Miu Miu Campaign

Internationally acclaimed brandnames appear to be pulled towards the direction of China this year -- Renowned French brands Louis Vuitton and Miu Miu (Urm, dear Chinese writer - Miu Miu's ITALIAN ) have simultaneously used eastern faces to promote their worldwide campaigns. Recently, LV sought out mainland model Du Juan and invited her to become the featured model of their worldwide campaign. Meanwhile, Zhou Xun and Dong Jie shot the Miu Miu Fall/Winter ad campaign in Paris.

The winner of the New Silk Road Pageant, Du Juan was recently featured as one of's Top Ten Models of 2006. Still only 19, Du Juan not only graced the NYC, London, Milan, and Paris international runways, but she also triumphed over her competition and was selected as Louis Vuitton's newest face.

The fashion industry has recently encountered an immense amount of Chinese influence, with many companies searching for Asian stars or models to front their advertisements. Another famous brandname, Miu Miu, chose mainland actresses Zhou Xun and Dong Jie as spokemodels for their next worldwide campaign, which is now in the process of being photographed in Paris. As the girlfriend of stylist Li Da Qi, Zhou Xun is riding on the momentum of her newfound love as well as her win in the Hong Kong Film Awards, and with the help of her significant other, she has transformed into an even more stylish individual -- a change that has enhanced her aura.

Chinese, Korean Stars Hit It Off in Busan

Busan 16th, October - "The elegance and beauty Korean actresses bring to the screen is truly remarkable. If I’m ever cast in a Korean movie, I definitely want to try to express that beauty myself.” - Zhou Xun “Chinese action does a beautiful job at showing feminine lines. You might not believe it, but I really love action movies. I really want to star in a Chinese action movie sometime.” - Jang Jin-young.

In the midst of the Pusan International Film Festival, Chinese actress Zhou Xun (left) meets Korean actress Jang Jin-young on Sunday at the Haeundae Grand Hotel in the southern port city also spelled ‘Busan.’

The two most beautiful stars at the Pusan International Film Festival this year met up at the Haeundae Beach in Busan on Sunday afternoon, Korea’s Jang Jin-young and Zhou Xun, the Chinese actress, whose roles in “Perhaps Love” and “The Night Banquet” have won her adoring fans in Korea as well as her homeland. The two, who the day before had never once met, were drawn together by a world’s first event that opened there.

On Monday, with a press conference and a red carpet event, the Star Summit Asia formally gets underway. In its first year, the summit, which is one of the side events for the Asian Film Market, gathers Asia’s biggest stars together in one place to introduce their talent and offer production companies who are casting their next film a closer look. It is also a platform to arrange co-productions.

The event has three sections: “Curtain Call” for top stars, the “Casting Board” for promising new talent, and the “Special Section” for Hollywood’s Asian newcomers. Of course it was the “curtain call” that had place cards set out for Jang Jin-young and Zhou Xun. Only Hwang Jung-min and Jang Jin-young were chosen to represent Korea, and Aoi Uoo (Japan) and Guo Xiaodong (China) were two of the six chosen from overseas.

Jang did seem a little uncomfortable at first. She’s not at the age anymore where she needs someone to make her introductions for her, she says. “The best way to show oneself to the industry insiders from overseas is through one’s work, I wasn’t sure at first that there is a need for a separate designated place to do so.” But she was won over. “After thinking about it some more, it is an honor just to be chosen to be here, and more than anything it seemed like this program, the first of its kind to be tried anywhere, would be fun, so that’s what brought me to Busan.”

Zhou, who was listening intently at her side, said, “I too tend to get worried… acting in front of the cameras isn’t easy, and I thought that it would be extra frightening at this separate event where I would have to show and express who I am.” There is criticism that the Star Summit is an artificial event, but with major distributors and production companies including Japan’s TohoTowa and Shochiku, China’s Beijing Poly Bona Film, EDKO Films of Hong Kong and Studio Canal from Europe present, the real success of the event is drawing attention.

The two stars were awkward around each other at first, but quickly warmed to one another. “I want to see the midnight screening of ‘Midnight Passion,’ but I’m worried that I might doze off,” said Jang, the big sister of the two, to which Zhou Xun said, “I told you that I would wake you back up,” while poking her in the ribs. Jang recalls that her last film “Blue Swallow” was shot in China. Zhou asked, “You like spicy food, right? If you come to Beijing I’ll definitely treat you to some good food.” The two exchanged phone numbers.

A review of MingMing

A Fable Films (Hong Kong)/Concord Creation Intl. (China)/Guangdong Avlight Entertainment (China) presentation of a Handmade production. (International Sales: EMP Distribution, Hong Kong).
Produced by Philip Lee, Barbie Tung, Susie Au.
Executive producers: Cao Zhong, Au, Jacky Hu, Zhao Lin, Philip Lee, Zorro Xu.
Directed by Susie Au.
Screenplay: Au, Angela Lau, Louisa Wei.

With: Zhou Xun, Daniel Wu, Tony Yang, Jeff Chang.
(Cantonese dialogue)

Edited like it's allergic to shots lasting longer than 10 seconds, Hong Kong-China genre hybrid "MingMing" ends up bursting its own bubble but not before having its way with auds who dig this sort of thing. Toplining Mainland star Zhou Xun in dual roles, hyperactive tale of a comic book-like female fighter aiming for romantic and financial jackpots in Shanghai has the firepower to make inroads in Asia, but faces an uphill battle in Western markets following its world preem in Pusan.
Susie Au, one of Hong Kong's leading musicvideo directors for more than a decade, packs in every trick of that particular trade, and then some, into her feature debut. Visual gimmicks like slow-motion, fast-forward, freeze frame and sundry bits of digital special effects are de rigueur from the moment pic's events kick off inside a nightclub-cum-fight arena.

Champion of the canvas is D (Daniel Wu), an enigmatic figure desired by every female but only available fulltime to the one who can produce $5 million and a promise to run away with him to Harbin. Destination in China, known as the "Ice City," holds the key to a secret sorrow from his past.

Likeliest contender to fill the role is foxy, black-clad adventuress Mingming (Zhou Xun), who has already enjoyed a roll in the hay with D and wants to make the arrangement permanent. Armed with the superhuman ability to flick tiny small metal balls at lightning speed, she decides money can buy her love and steals the cash from an effeminate crime bigwig named Brother Cat.

Following an arresting, "Matrix"-like moment at his headquarters, she makes a beeline for Shanghai, where it's presumed she'll meet her man for the hike to Harbin.

Maxed-out visuals are matched by plotting, which now finds Mingming's sidekick Tu (Tony Yang) hooking up with orange-haired Mingming lookalike Nana (also Zhou Xun), apparently another of D's girlfriends, on the boat to Shanghai. The appearance of a wooden box with a "Kiss Me Deadly"-like "do not open" aura further complicates matters.

Zhou Xun and Daniel Wu

Logic and coherence may be in short supply, but auds demanding nonstop stimulation will get their fill as all roads lead to a snowbound finale, where most scores are settled and the secret of what's inside the box is revealed in all its dubious plausibility.

With Wu's screen time limited (he's given "special appearance" credit), Zhou has a thesping field day as cool operator Mingming and the emotionally brittle Nana. Zhou, who also played dual roles in Lou Ye's much quieter "Suzhou River" (2001), seizes both roles with gusto and emerges with reputation enhanced.

Fisher Yu lensed with high-end fashion-shoot gloss while tech contributers can all put their "Mingming" work on showreel highlights. Kudos are especially due production designer Thomas Chan, whose decors create a unified whole from the elements of comic book, sci-fi and film noir.

Not only is Nana a virtual look-alike of MingMing, she is also one of the D's girlfriends. MingMing make Nana to scapegoat for her theft. However, MingMing's secret admirer Tu (Tony Yang) mistakes Nana for her, an becomes her guardian angel.

Just as thi identity mix-up is taking place. D disappears from Shanghai without a trace. The only clue he leaves behind is a cryptic phone message. The two girls search all four corners of the sprawling city but are left dismayed an disappointed. Even more dejected is Tu, who realizes that he means nothing to his goddess.

As four lost souls weave in and out of each other's live in the maze-like metropolis, the dark forces of Cat are closing in on them.

At this critical moment ...
