Director Feng Xiaogang’s new romantic comedy, If You Are the One 2<非誠勿擾 2> will be released on December 24th in North America. This marks the first time a Chinese film is released almost simultaneously in North America as its home release in China. Starring Ge You and Shu Qi, If You Are the One 2 is the highly anticipated sequel to the 2008 award-winning film bearing the same title which set box office records in China.
In the first film, If You Are the One, Qin Fen (Ge You) was a successful entrepreneur who returned to China looking for a wife. Through an online dating ad, Fen stumbled upon flight attendant, Liang Xiaoxiao (Shu Qi). The pair became an odd couple and forged a deep emotional connection. Presented in Feng’s trademark humorous style, If You Are the One 2 follows the romantic tribulations faced by Qin Fen and Xiaoxiao. Due to their frequent quarrels and conflicting views on marriage, Qin Fen and Xiaoxiao agree on a “trial marriage” to test their love for each other.
As the first Chinese director to accumulate $1 billion Yuan in aggregate box office sales in China, Feng Xiaogang’s observational comedies have thoroughly captured worldwide audiences. Feng also directed the highly successful Aftershock<唐山大地震>, which was the highest grossing home-produced film of all time in China. Aftershock has been selected as China’s entry for Best Foreign Language Film in the 83rd Academy Awards.
If You Are the One 2 is the second film released by China Lion Film Distribution in North America, who also handled this summer’s release of Aftershock. If You Are the One 2 will be shown in twenty AMC and Cineplex theaters in North American cities, including New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Boston, Washington, DC, Toronto, Vancouver and Ottawa.
