My Lucky Star Poster and Trailers Hit

0

The trailer has hit for upcoming action-comedy, My Lucky Star, produced and starring Zhang Ziyi. As a sequel of sorts to the hit comedy Sophie’s Revenge, released in 2009, this film finds the unlucky in love Sophie on a madcap caper with Mr. Gao, played by Taiwanese idol Wang Leehom. The preview is decidedly different from the original film in that gone is the humorous daydreams our lead character has constantly and the wackiness of the situation seems quite out of touch with the ending of the last film. While I enjoyed Sophie’s Revenge for it’s lyrical style and uniquely comedic performance by Zhang, this film seems to follow a somewhat generic action comedy route. American director Dennie Gordon is at the helm and has an odd assortment of credits to her name (Joe Dirt, What a Girl Wants, and New York Minute) but here work can be seen most recently amongst the excellent lineup of shows on the USA Network including Burn Notice, Suits, Royal Pains, and White Collar. I’ll have my fingers crossed when My Lucky Star is released later this year. –Cesar
