Director Doze Niu‘s pet project LOVE the movie has finally released it’s official full trailer as it prepares for a Valentine’s Day premiere across Asia. The movie looks fabulous, a Chinese version of Love Actually with a smaller scope and cast. I pretty much like every single actor in this movie, and watching them love, fight, and make out in the trailer was totally up my alley. I’m sure when I watch it, I’ll have a favorite couple story amongst the cast, but from the preview alone, I’m digging the Mark Chao–Vicki Zhao combo. Doesn’t hurt they actually have the same last name, just spelled differently since China uses pinyin and Taiwan uses Wade-Giles. He plays a callous dick, she plays a tempermental single mom. I can’t wait to see the sparks fly.
