LeTV Pictures has announced 10 new film projects for this year, which include various genres and range from small-budget to big-budget flicks, Mtime.com reports.

At a news conference yesterday in Beijing, the company noted that its Sino-American action blockbuster "The Expendables 2," which is the first international blockbuster in which it has invested, would no doubt be the most eye-catching film of 2012. The film's predecessor, "The Expendables 2010," directed by Sylvester Stallone, grossed US$250 million in China.

The budget for "The Expendables 2" is more than US$100 million. The film is expected to be released in China at the same time it is released in other regions in the world.

LeTV Pictures' other big-budget films include director Gordon Chan's war suspense epic "The Dark Meteors" and director Law Chi-Leung's "The Ghost Bullets."

LeTV Pictures' small- and medium-budget films are primarily comedies and thrillers, such as Li Weiran's financial comedy "Battle in CBD," an adaptation of the stage comedy-drama "Mahua Fun Age: Count on Mountain Wulong," "Fairy Tale Killer" starring Lau Ching-Wan and Wang Baoqiang, "Conspirators" featuring Nick Zhang and Aaron Kwok, and the zodiac-themed film "The Zodiac Mystery."

Besides these films, LeTV Pictures released "All's Well, Ends Well 2012" and "Love Lifting" earlier this year.

LeTV Pictures' news comes on the heels of similar new project announcements by two of China's major entertainment companies—Huayi Brothers and Enlight Pictures.
