TIFF TRAILER: Zhang Ziyi Heats Up 'Dangerous Liaisons' Update

"Dangerous Liaisons" TIFF
All eyes will be on Beijing-born actress Zhang Ziyi of "Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon" fame at this year's Toronto International Film Festival, following China Free Press' recent shocking allegation that Zhang carried on sexual relationships for money with a number of high-ranking Chinese officials. She will no doubt be plagued with questions regarding the claim when she comes to Toronto in support of her turn in Hur Jin-ho's sensual adaptation of the classic French novel, "Dangerous Liasons."

Frankly, we're more excited to see Jin-ho's take on the material, which updates Pierre Choderlos de Laclo's tale of sex and scheming to 1930s Shanghai, than to hear her defend herself to the press, after watching the promising just-released trailer for the drama.

Check it out for yourself below:

    It will be hard not to care about this movie. When I see Ziyi cry, I get sick inside. She is that good!!

    Didn't she officially request and switch the order of her name to Ziyi Zhang back when Memoirs of a Geisha came out so it would more accurately correspond to her first and last name in the rest of the world?

    So wait...what's the scandal here? How is that different than how other actresses make it here in Hollywood? And even if so, what business is it of ours? Sex scandals are so passé. It would be great if actors and actresses could actually talk about their work instead of their sex lives. It really is getting tediously boring.
