Upcoming romantic comedy This Is Not What I Expected (喜欢你) stars Takeshi Kaneshiro as a prickly CEO and Zhou Dongyu as a sassy chef.

But, unfortunately the film won’t be in theaters until next Thursday on April 27th (and I’m not in China either, so I’ll have to wait several months until it’s legally available online) 😛

Oho Ou and Jing Tian’s Fist & Faith (青禾男高) held a press conference a few days ago and released a trailer, giving us a better idea of the overall tone of the movie. I was a little confused with the information released previously, since the story didn’t seem to match up with the stills. But, I just realized Doze Niu is the producer for this film and it all makes sense now, as Fist & Faith feels very similar to his 2010’s Monga 艋舺 (which starred Ethan Ruan & Mark Chao), a little old school but gets the job done in delivering a coming-of-age story with a strong sense of brotherhood. Watch the trailer below, we’ve subbed it!
