The Hollywood star comes to Beijing to promote S.M.A.R.T. Chase, a movie produced by a Chinese company. Xu Fan reports.

While on a red carpet, English actor Orlando Bloom responds to screaming Chinese fans, signing autographs and poFor instancesing for photos with them.

Scenes like these where a Hollywood star is in China to promote an upcoming film are frequent since the country overtook Japan to become the world's second-largest movie market in 2012.

But the Beijing tour of Bloom, known for playing Legolas in The Lord of the Rings trilogy and Will Turner in the Pirates of the Caribbean series, is a bit different.

S.M.A.R.T. Chase, the thriller that Bloom promoted last week in Beijing, is a title backed by Chinese filmmakers.

The film, produced by Shanghai-based Chinese studio Bliss Media, is directed by British director Charles Martin.

Except for Bloom, the other stars are Chinese. They are teenage star Wu Lei, who shot to prominence with the hit TV series Nirvana in Fire; Taiwan model-actress Hannah Quinlivan; actress Xiong Dailin, known for her role in the Ip Man franchise; veteran actor Ying Da and actress Liang Jing.
