The premiere is coming! CCTV's 35-episode spy war drama is coming, starring Wang Zhiwen, and 6 supporting roles can be expected
Turnip greens have their own love.
Some people like science fiction dramas, some people like suspense films, and some people like period dramas and anti-war dramas.
And I only have a soft spot for domestic spy war plots.
The unique setting in spy war dramas makes the dramas often accompanied by brain-burning wisdom fighting plots. Follow the plot, guess who is the enemy, predict how our side will transmit intelligence, and the battle of wits and courage between the enemy and us is the most exciting.
Unfortunately, although domestic spy war dramas are popular, there are not many decent spy war dramas in recent years.
In the first half of 2023, two blockbuster spy war dramas will be broadcast.
Whether it is "Infernal" by Jin Dong, Wang Zhiwen and Zhang Zhijian, or "Thin Ice" starring Wang Jinsong, Fu Dalong, Peng Guanying and Wu Yue, although they are all strong and menacing, the quality is difficult to say.
Some plot rhythms are too pompous, and some are too outrageous in the plot of wisdom fighting, so that many audiences take advantage of the fun and return defeated.
But don't be discouraged.
The old does not go, the new does not come.
It is reported that another spy war drama is coming.
"Night and Dawn", starring Wang Zhiwen, Ni Dahong, Wang Jinsong, and many powerful people helped.
At present, the play has released a character trailer poster, and the process has taken a step forward, as a key drama to be broadcast by CCTV, this drama is also highly anticipated.
Next, taking advantage of the opportunity that the show has not yet started, I will focus on this "Night and Dawn" for you to try it!
1: What is the story?
In 1943, our agent Lu Zhengyang and Lin Shaobai fought for the first time, and the two people fought fiercely around an explosion that shocked Shanghai.
After the liberation of Shanghai, Lu Zhengyang became a backbone of our special anti-enemy front. At that time, although our side had won, the struggle between the enemy and ourselves was still severe, and a large number of enemy spies were lurking in the shadows, plotting sabotage.
At this time, in order to be able to better attack the enemy, Lu Zhengyang boldly used Lin Shaobai, who was known as "Shanghai Jack of All Trades" after strict screening and screening. The two met again and became partners from past rivals.
Lu Zhengyang and Lin Shaobai also changed from the initial friction and struggle to comrades who cooperate tacitly and share life and death.
With the close cooperation of the two people, they cracked many major enemy actions one after another, killing all the enemy elements hidden in the shadows, clearing the way for the final victory.
2: Who played it?
The director of "Night and Dawn" is Jin Chen and Huang Nan, and the screenwriter is Weng Liangping.
The director of this drama, don't look at the name is not familiar to everyone, but they are also well-known directors in China. Among them, Jin Chen has participated in the work of many spy war dramas, and the spy war drama "Sparrow" is his representative work.
And Huang Nan, who participated in the co-directing of "Breaking the Game 1950", although he has insufficient experience in spy war dramas, he has participated in the co-directing work of "Across the Yalu River" and "Armageddon", and his strength cannot be underestimated.
The main actors of the play are Chen Zheyuan, Nie Yuan, Wang Zhiwen, Ni Dahong, Wang Jinsong, Sun Yan, Feng Bing, Wen Zhengrong, Liu Tianzuo, Ren Zhengbin and so on. The protagonist plus supporting role, 10 well-known powerful actors joined, there are old drama bones, there are also Mesozoic generation powerhouses, the lineup can not be described as strong.
In this group of actors, I don't know whose performance everyone is looking forward to, I personally think that 6 actors are worth looking forward to.
3: Wang Zhiwen
Wang Zhiwen is an old drama bone and an old acquaintance of everyone. Its well-known masterpieces are numerous and have a wide fan base.
Wang Zhiwen's acting skills are delicate and changeable, and his line skills are particularly strong, watching his plays, no matter at any time, is like watching a drama, which is an ultimate audio-visual experience.
Wang Zhiwen not only has many domestic drama works, but also has rich experience in spy war dramas.
In the early years, he participated in the filming of the spy war movie "The Wind", in which he played Wang Tianxiang, and Wang Zhiwen's interpretation of the gods is still deeply remembered in retrospect.
It is worth mentioning that after so many years, the Douban score of "The Wind" is 8.4 points, which is still the pinnacle of domestic spy war movies.
In the first 2 years, Wang Zhiwen participated in spy war dramas again and collaborated with Zhu Yilong in "Rebel", which also left a deep impression.
Moreover, there is "Infernal" in the first half of 2023, in this drama, Wang Zhiwen plays the villain Mu Xihe, with a bald head shape, a face of horizontal meat, sharp eyes, and a fierce expression, which makes people shudder at a glance.
You can say that there is a problem with the rhythm and logic of the plot of "Infernal", but Wang Zhiwen's performance is absolutely impeccable.
Wang Zhiwen has rich experience in spy war dramas, he can play both positive characters and villains, and his participation in "Night and Dawn" is a great help to the whole drama, and I am personally looking forward to his performance.
4: Wang Jinsong
Wang Jinsong is also an old acquaintance of everyone.
Like many viewers, I met Wang Jinsong because I watched "Daming Dynasty 1566".
However, to say that the role that really impressed me, in fact, personally, I think his role as Wang Puchen in "No War in Beiping" is even more impressive.
It is clear that coughing is not only but still can't change bad habits, the skinny body looks weak, but when he opens his mouth, he is treacherous and fierce.
In 2023, Wang Jinsong will also start broadcasting spy war dramas, and he is one of the important starring roles in "Thin Ice", in which he plays the villain Guan Yongshan. On the surface, he looks like a gentleman, but in fact he has a bad stomach.
Wang Jinsong gives people the feeling that it is especially suitable for playing the villain, and with one look, he can perform the characteristics of the character.
This time, Wang Jinsong participated in "Night and Dawn", and his performance is also worth looking forward to.
5: Ni Dahong
Like Wang Zhiwen and Wang Jinsong, Ni Dahong is also an old drama bone. Ni Dahong plays various villains all year round.
Although his facial expressions are not rich enough, his acting skills are delicate and changeable, and he is skillful, and he can perform the characteristics of the characters just through line plays, which is impressive.
Ni Dahong, played a mountain eagle in "Outsmart the Tiger Mountain", played Su Daqiang in "It's All Good", and played the big guy Uncle Tai in the opening drama "Crazy" in 2023. Even, in "Wolf Warrior", he also played the villain Minden.
The ruthless man never looked back at the explosion, and the momentum was compelling.
In addition, Ni Dahong's spy war dramas are also very experienced, and he has good performance in "The Wind" and "No War in Beiping". In Zhang Yimou's movie "Above the Cliff", he also played Gao Bin, creating a character that was impressive.
This time, Ni Dahong participated in "Night and Dawn", and what kind of performance he will have this time is worth looking forward to.
6: Sun Yan, Feng Bing
Put Sun Yan and Feng Bing together, not because their wrists are not big enough, but because they are old acquaintances of everyone, or old acquaintances of the audience of "Crazy".
One plays Xiaohu and the other plays Lao Mo, both of which are very characteristic characters in "Crazy".
In particular, Lao Mo, played by Feng Bing, went astray from an honest person to a killer who kills without blinking.
With a lollipop in his mouth, one second he was still coaxing his daughter to be happy, and the next second he had become a bloodthirsty murderer, and the contrast before and after was unforgettable.
Actually, I knew Sun Yan before watching "Crazy". At that time, he cooperated with Liao Fan in the suspense drama "Gold Rush", in that drama, Sun Yan created delicate and changeable characters, expressive and down-to-earth, which left a deep impression on me.
In "Crazy", Sun Yan just got a platform that should have belonged to him, and it was only a matter of time before fire happened.
In the current hit suspense drama "The Disappearing Eleventh Floor", Sun Yan also participated, playing the villain Sha Jin in the play, which is also domineering.
Sun Yan belongs to the kind of natural villain, and "Night and Dawn" asked him to participate, which can be regarded as choosing the right role.
7: Nie Yuan
Originally, I was not interested in Nie Yuan, but because of a drama, I changed my opinion.
In "Dear Child", Nie Yuan plays Xie Tianhua in the play, which is a traditional father figure.
After the child fell ill, he took care of everything for his relatives, and was willing to sacrifice everything without asking for anything in return, which was touching.
Nie Yuan has created a responsible and responsible male image, expressive and down-to-earth, which allowed me to see his changeable acting skills.
Before, I always thought that Nie Yuan was more suitable for costume dramas, but after watching "Dear Child", I think he still has a lot of potential.
In terms of spy war dramas, Nie Yuan is also quite amazing. In 2021, he cooperated with Zhang Luyi in the spy war drama "Forerunner", in this drama, Nie Yuan played Tang Xianping, and Zhang Luyi played Ma Tianmu, there were many rival scenes, and the scene of two people fighting wits and courage was also very enjoyable to watch.
This time, Nie Yuan participated in the spy war drama again, and it is worth paying attention to whether he can bring amazing performance to the audience again.
8: Can you surpass Liu Yunlong?
Mention domestic spy war dramas.
You can't fail to mention Liu Yunlong.
As a benchmark figure in domestic spy war dramas, Liu Yunlong's two spy war dramas "Dark Calculation" and "Kite" directed and acted by Liu Yunlong have Douban scores of about 9 points, which are absolute classics in domestic spy war dramas.
Especially "Kite", in recent years, as the audience has gradually increased, word of mouth has also risen.
More and more passers-by and viewers entered the pit through the recommendations of others and saw the unique charm of Liu Yunlong's spy war drama.
The strong are lonely, but those who surpass the strong are lively.
After the success of Liu Yunlong's spy war drama, whenever a new spy war drama is launched, it is inevitable to be compared with Liu Yunlong's spy war drama. This is not self-defeating, nor is it hitting stones with pebbles, but the exclusive treatment of the strong.
After all, records are meant to be broken.
The back waves of the Yangtze River push the front waves, and only with competition can there be development, and only with goals can there be motivation.
And this "Night and Dawn", not only has the advantages of the theme, but also found a super lineup, and at the same time has the support of the CCTV platform.
The show can be said to be ready for everything, and with the strength to wrestle with Liu Yunlong, it only owes the broadcast.
This time, whether "Night and Dawn" can successfully surpass Liu Yunlong and sweep away the haze of domestic spy war dramas for many years, we will wait and see!
