Kar Wai Wong’s 2046

Opening on Sept 28th (that’s Tuesday) across Asia, 2046 is Wing Kar Wai 4 year cinematic journey, starting Maggie Cheung, Tony Leung Chiu Wai, and Zhang Ziyi.


The New York Times magazine tells the story (The Director’s Director (Registration required) behind the making of this film which will likey be a huge success (or an absolute disaster). A (indirect) sequel for his 2000 “In the Mood for Love” (Fa yeung nin wa), in certainly appears to be a lush and colorful.

(The Globe and Mail had a good and very different article, but I can’t find a link to it; they don’t want to share?)

I haven’t found a trailer (yet) but here is a short teaser, no sound; also a Link to ziped hi-res images from the film; and this is the 2046 official site(Flash), in english/chinese/japanese.

No word on when us Northern Americans can view the beauty
