A new teaser premiered back in May for the upcoming release of the romantic crime drama, Crimes Of Passion. The film is based on a 1997 mainland China TV series, and stars actress Angelababy, best known for her role in the recent kung fu steampunk action adventure hits, Tai Chi Zero and Tai Chi Hero. Angelababy stars as a cop investigating a case involving missing artifacts, which implactes her in a tumultuous love triangle between her boyfriend, and the son of a crimeboss who happens to be her main suspect.
Being a theatrical rendition of a popular television show, some of the larger talk revolved around the actress’s bold approach to her role, particularly with not having seen the show prior to filming, and ultimately choosing to observe
a fresher, more updated, headstrong, gentle and glamorous approach to her character. She also attributed the challenges of her performance to the emotional volume of her role, and also described her time on set with her character as an unforgettable experience
Crimes Of Passion also stars Huang Xiaoming and Korean actor Jae Hee, and is directed by Gao Qunshu with a domestic release date set for August 13, 2013.
Check out the first teaser below, as well as a little featurette beneath it. My apologies for the lack of subs.
