A Chinese actor reads his lines before the filming of a historical myth in Hengdian World Studios in Zhengjian province, China, March 2, 2006. Hengdian World Studios, which aspires to be the "Hollywood of the East," hosted more than 70 movies and TV crews in 2005.

It has two super-large modern film studios and 12 film and TV scene sites spanning different periods in Chinese history, one of which is a real size duplication of the Forbidden City, attracting one third of the costumed Chinese historical dramas and a list of Chinese movie blockbusters including the Oscar nominated film "Hero" by director Zhang Yimou.
