As we stand at the threshold of the year of the Rabbit, preparations for the coming Spring Festival are well underway. Some are planning to go home for a family reunion, while others have started looking for a new outfit to wear for a brand new year. And with so many people taking vacations, it's only fair that we should present our Coming Attractions to help you celebrate.

An action comedy mixing elements of "Mr. and Mrs. Smith" and "The Incredibles" is about to meet the audience during Spring Festival. The story tells a superhero couple who decide to live in a small village, but only to find that the quiet life is not really suitable for super heroes. The film stars Louis Koo and Sandra Ng, and promises a lot of laughs during the holiday.

Choreographer Zhang Jigang continues his saga based on the "Thousand-armed Goddess of Mercy". His former creation was a smash hit at the 2005 CCTV spring festival gala. His brand new show revamps the piece with top-notch dance choreography and an A-list production team in music, stage design and costumes. "Thousand-armed Goddess of Mercy" will be showing at the National Center for the Performing Arts, from January the 27th to February the 1st.

A dance opera reflecting the ethnic culture of Hakka people will soon grace the stage in Beijing. The dance depicts the difficult migration of Hakka people moving from the central plains of modern-day Henan province, to west Fujian province. The actors in the dance drama "The Charm of Earth Buildings" are mostly Hakka people themselves and the music is carefully selected from Hakka folk tunes. "The Charm of Earth Buildings" will be performed on February 20th at the National Center for the Performing Arts.
