Li Bingbing Attends Premiere of “Resident Evil: Retribution” in Los Angeles

Mainland Chinese actress, Li Bingbing (李冰冰), is no newcomer when it comes to Hollywood films, but Resident Evil: Retribution may be Bingbing’s big breakthrough in the international market.

The film is the fifth installment in the Resident Evil film series, which is adapted from the Japanese survival-horror video game series of the same title.

Resident Evil: Retribution held its red carpet premiere in Los Angeles on September 12. Director Paul W.S. Anderson, Milla Jovovich, Sienna Guillory, Alexa Vega, and Li Bingbing were among the cast and crew who attended the premiere that night.

Li Bingbing graced the red carpet with a long, black one-shoulder dress. Oriental Daily reported that Bingbing was one of the main focus of the night, winning over even Milla Jovovich, who sported a black dress with a deep plunging neckline. Dozens of reporters called out “Li!” or “Bingbing!” simultaneously to attract the 39-year-old’s attention, overwhelming Bingbing. The actress expressed afterwards that she felt unduly flattered with the amount of attention she received at the film premiere.

Anderson told the press that Bingbing is a crucial player in the film’s promotional tour. He revealed that the film received outstanding results in Taiwan’s box office in the first day, “Bingbing is our money-sucking rock!”

The Los Angeles premiere of Resident Evil: Retribution is Bingbing’s first red carpet event for the film after the actress refused to attend the film’s world premiere in Tokyo, Japan on September 5. She was reported saying that she will attend anywhere in the world to promote the film except Japan, expressing her political stance on the disputes between China and Japan for the claims of the Diaoyu (or Senkaku and Tiaoyutai) islands.

      I saw her interview on The View last year? Her English was pretty bad, but that’s understandable. Perhaps, she improved by now.

      I think she did well. Although you can hear her accent, her pronunciation was clear.

    I dont get it really, she filmed for RE which the original game was designed by the Japanese but the americans renamed the game by Resident Evil, the game design and etc were obviously the same one as I played the Jap’s one.. and she refused to attend Japan’s Premiere? She shouldn’t have film for the RE in the first place, maybe she didn’t know the origin of the game.

      Maybe she didn’t really have a problem with Japan until the island disputes?

      I think she didn’t know. It’s weird when actors or actresses pull something like that. I thought promoting your film is a part of your job?

        No way she didn’t know. The PR would have briefed her on every move she made. Its totally calculated that she didn’t attend the Japan Premiere.

      Filming is ok, she just doesn’t want to be on japanese soil. Let her be though I feel this is just a pr move. Maybe she is very patriotic.

        I don’t like Chinese actors and actress do this. Blast me if you like, I however find the mainland ppls are getting unreasonable, they think anything that once were them should be their forever. I don’t like how they use their status as a big country and force Taiwan to use different name just to participate in the olymmpic, for once, could they just freaking leave their patriotic crap at home, and do what event meant to do?
        Olympic is to promote sport makes everyone equal, china make sure that not the case. Now bingbing pulled this trick on Japan, like really?!
        I don’t love or hate her before, now she’s in the black spot for me.

      • Funn Lim replied:

        Why not blame Japan for taking what is not theirs and proclaiming the island as theirs?

        I may not agree with her tactic but I agree with her sentiments. I personally will not and did not walk into temples honouring the WWII veterans when I was in Japan. It is a personal choice.

        Politic will only sour a conversation, so let it end there. In the end, what she did might be pr move, might be not but it certainly don’t sit well with other peoples, with me, as I view that it should be about the movie and the fans

        AGREED WITH FUNN ON THIS:
        “Japan should not take what is not theirs”.

        Perhaps, China should def use this as an example and not to steal from Vietnam by invading what is not theirs. China invaded Vietnam islands and killed lots of innocent lives, destroyed families viciously in 2011. Such a sad world we live in now.

    I bet Bing Bing earn a lot of new Mainland fans with her stance on Japan.

      It is a smart move but unnecessary one. I feel she can go and promote, but don’t go anywhere near the islands or start wearing imperial flags.

      Politics are best left to the politicians. Most people are clueless when it comes to politics and only know what they are told by one side of the equation.

    Even if there’s no intention of offending anyone, can people refrain from using the word “Jap”?

      I agree. I think it says volumes about people who use racial slurs.

    The past box office failure of this movie serie suggests that the producer is aiming this one more toward the Far East market with the casting of Li Bing Bing.

    BingBing rocks !
    Her age doesnt reflected in her appearance in Retribution 😀
    And, what makes Retribution good is BingBing ‘s appearance as a fresh character.
