It hasn’t been a long wait between the drama and movie versions of Three Lives Three Worlds, Ten Miles Peach Blossoms, just the right amount of time to still fondly remember drama Eternal Love and have a hankering for another dose with movie Once Upon a Time. In terms of pure visuals the movie leads Yang Yang and Crystal Liu win out on their doll-like looks while the drama leads Mark Chao and Yang Mi have the goodwill and familiarity edge having originated the live-action versions of the beloved characters of Ye Hua and Bai Qian. I’ll call it even and eagerly await the movie for a chance to revisit the fairy and fantasy world of Three Lives, with dragons and heavenly beings, foxes and earthly magic, and even forays into the ocean realm with plenty of watery beauty. The final theatrical trailer was released right before the movie premiered in China on August 3rd and looks like a visual effects laden melodramatic and action packed ride.
