Two original film adaptations with a burst of popularity and a box office exceeding 100 million

What is IP? Is it a novel, a story setting, or a core creator? In the Internet age, film and television products are no longer one-way content transmission. Interactivity has become the number one attribute of all entertainment content in the Internet era.

Today I will introduce you to the two amazing IP Chinese costume movies that are extremely worth watching!

     1.Once Upon a Time

Once Upon a Time,” tells of eternal love, namely that between two gods across thousands of years. It’s a story of “epic battles, deep passion, and the powerful forces that drive mortals and gods alike toward revenge, loyalty, and eternal love.” “Once Upon a Time” derives from a Chinese novel, “Three Lives Three Worlds, Ten Miles of Peach Blossoms” (published in English as “To the Sky Kingdom”). At that time, the official release of the movie version of Yang Yang and Liu Yifei’s stills, most of the netizens were shocked, feeling that the two people in the book came out and couldn’t wait to see the finished product.

First of all, from the perspective of Yang Yang and Liu Yifei, their temperament is very in line with the characters of Yehua and Bai Qian in the play, and they both carry the immortality and nobility of the ancient gods. Yang Yang and Liu Yifei’s appearance conditions can be regarded as the ceiling of Chinese actors and actresses, and their appearance can definitely support the identity of the ancient gods.

Then there are the special effects. Every scene and action is like us fully interpreting what is called the life of the ancient gods. The film was co-directed by Zhao Xiaoding (Academy Award®-nominee for Best Achievement in Cinematography, House of Flying Daggers, 2004) and Anthony LaMolinara (Oscar® winner for Best Achievement in Visual Effects, Spider-Man 2, 2004).

     2. Jade Dynasty I

Jade Dynasty I” is also known as a big IP movie integrating martial arts, fairy chivalry, fantasy, and ancient costumes. After vigorous publicity in the early stage, it now has a high reputation. The original “Zhu Xian” depicts a magnificent world of immortals, with ups and downs after watching “Jade Dynasty, I think the acting skills of the main actors such as Xiao Zhan, Li Qin, Meng Meiqi, and Tang Yixin are quite good. As the only male main character, everyone should be able to see the serious attitude of Xiao Zhan from the Non-Film Academy to acting. In addition to his courteous attitude, Xiao Zhan’s performance has a sense of role substitution, and his interpretation makes people enter the scene. Personally, in recent months, when Xiao Zhan is mentioned, you will think of Wei Wuxian (from “The Untamed”), and watching this film, I was sure that the person I saw was Zhang Xiaofan, not anyone else. Xiao Fan’s youthful sentiment in front of her senior sister, his ridicule and embarrassment by the seniors, his fun interaction with small animals, and his demonization are all considered professional acting.

Unfortunately, although the movie versions are really good, the TV series version of these two movies was released earlier, and the response to the broadcast was very good. This has led to many netizens resisting after the movie version was released. They felt that the TV drama version was the best and unsurpassable. Don’t hesitate on watching these two movies! maybe you will find something you like at OnDemand China!
