New Chinese movies L.O.R.D: Legend of Ravaging Dynasties (爵迹), I Belonged To You (从你的全世界路过) in Pittsburgh from September 30.

Two 2016 Chinese movies will play at the AMC Loews Waterfront theater from September 30: the stop-motion CGI film L.O.R.D: Legend of Ravaging Dynasties (爵迹) and the romance I Belonged To You (从你的全世界路过).

The distributor provides a brief plot summary of L.O.R.D: Legend of Ravaging Dynasties (爵迹), starring Fan Bingbing and Kris Wu:
A long time ago, a determined King Zhou, supported by his concubine Daji, sets his mind on conquering the Middle Kingdom. After years of slaughter, the unyielding Adept tribes have been eliminated in succession. Jiang and General Ji from Qishan are King Zhou's longstanding opponents.
The movie premieres in China and the US on the 30th, and will play here in Mandarin with English subtitles.

Another theater provides a synopsis of I Belonged To You (从你的全世界路过):
I Belonged To You is a romance omnibus of mini love stories adapted from Zhang Jiajia's best-selling internet "bedtime stories" novel of the same name. Chen Mo (Deng Chao), is known as the cheapest person in the whole city. Every day he will battle against DJ Xiao Rong (Du Juan). No one knows where their hate comes from. Chen Mo’s two little brothers, whether it is the silliest Zhu Tou (Yue Yun Peng) or the city’s most innocent Mo Shi Ba (Yang Yang), the three people all go on rampages daily, thinking that they can all live freely, but the result is that they all hit the greatest turning point of their lives. Chen Mo meets the mysterious Yao Yi (Zhang Tian Ai), Zhu Tou creates the worst wedding of all time, Mo Shi Ba experiences the saddest parting. These people’s lives reveal things little by little. Dreams, love, friendship all go far away. They have already lost their own paths, until they hear a voice from around the world.
Tickets and showtime information for both movies is available on the theater's website. The theater is located at 300 West Waterfront Dr. in the Waterfront shopping complex in Homestead (map), across the Monongahela River from Greenfield, Squirrel Hill, and the rest of Pittsburgh.
