Max Zhang Jin, Eddie Pang Wai On and Babyjohn Choi Hong Yik received the good news with the cast and the crew.

Everyone presented five birthday buns to director Soi Cheang Po Shui not only to celebrate his birthday on the 11th but also to celebrate his becoming a 500 million director. Zhang Jin in SPL 2 won 500 million box office with his hard fight. He said, "I am very happy. This is a men's film, but the spending power ultimately is women driven. It's not easy to be able to attract women to the movie, which proves that this film's quality is good! My wife (Ada Choi Siu Fun) saw it too. (Did your wife's heart ache?)

Shiga Lin Si Nga, her new film WHEN GEEK MEETS SERIAL KILLER (YEH LONG YU MA LEI)'s director Cheng Kin Wo and internet celebrity Ming Jai talked about their new film. Shiga mentioned that her sausage swallowing scene captured many otaku. "I never thought that everyone's focus would be on this scene. I was a little surprised. This scene was only in the film for a moment, the fantasy of the protagonist. (A photoshopped version has appeared online, are you afraid that it would ruin your singer image?) I haven't seen the photoshopped graphics, but as a public figure whatever I do would have a chance to become a great controversy. If I worry too much and have too much baggage, acting would be very hard." Shiga in the film worked with Bryant Chang. She said, "Not only him, the other actor JC Chee was pretty big too. (Do you like big guys?) I don't have a preference for big guys, healthy and athletic men are more attractive to me."

Jackie Chan (成龍) appeared on Mainland variety show Day Day Up (天天向上) as the anti-drug ambassador with narcotics police officers to promote drug control. Regarding his son Jaycee Chan (房祖名) who was arrested last year in Beijing for drug use, Jackie once again thanked the public safety administration and said this was a valuable lesson because Jaycee didn't even know what poverty meant before this happened. He claimed Jaycee has changed a lot after his release from prison. Now, he would placed his shoes back where they were originally at, he would place the dishes in the kitchen sink after he finished eating, and even read books and write songs. He smilingly pointed out that Jaycee has done all the things he hasn't done in the past years during the past six months. He said: "Every year, he should stay in prison for half a year."

Jackie also stated that he hasn't scolded his son about the drug scandal since he felt that Jaycee has already gotten his punishment. He pointed out that his son is afraid to see others and afraid to look at him when he speaks. When Jaycee was released from prison, the father and son embraced one another.

Hope there is more money contribution to build speciality schools as it is little currently." When asked if she brought her son to do volunteer work, Kay felt her son was mature and could increase his understanding about society through volunteer work: "Let him know he has to contribute, render his assistance, learn how to show respect and help the needy people. I guess he knows it now but will enhance his understanding after the interaction."

When mentioned about the romance between Kevin Cheng (鄭嘉穎) and Grace Chan (陳凱琳), Kay was also 1 of the cast members of Blue Veins series and said: "Please give them more privacy and I did not really notice them during filming. Kindly refrain from giving them more pressure since they had announced it. (Support their 'father and daughter' romance?) I did not take note of this title and it is good to know they get along well and appreciate each other."

Singer Steve Wong (黃家強) attended TVB show Caritas Star-Studded Charity Show (明愛暖萬心). Earlier, it was rumored that the music group Beyond will reunite for a new charity show. After the show, Steve stated that "Beyond has already come to an end." But recently there has been news that the group planned on reforming but dropped the idea because Paul Wong's (黃貫中) wife Athena Chu (朱茵) wanted another child. In regards to this news, Steve said: "I've been saying I wouldn't do it all along so it's not my business no matter what is interfering with the others. I just don't want to do it and I don't know what interferences there are but I won't consider it. (Plans dropped because Athena wanted another child?) The man takes care of external matters while the woman takes care of domestic matters. So it's probably unrelated to that. Don't accused them like that. It's better for everyone to happily live their life." He also pointed out that his wife's personality is positive, naive, and will never intervene his work.

Laments that fans can't help 

Asked whether there is a chance Beyond will reform, Steve emphatically reiterated: "Yes, it will not happen. Unfortunately, we can't do anything. I don't want anyone to ask anymore because even if you ask, the answer is no. So I will say it all at once, no, there will be none in the future! (Aren't you worried fans will be disappointed?) When I was worried, it wasn't now, but I was worried a few years ago. Two years ago, all along, I've been worried, wanting to reform the group, and happily jam together in a band. And the fans were also thinking about many things but ..... (article cut to save bandwidth)

Moses expressed that he wished to bring his sons for swimming, boat ride and theme park: "Initially, I planned to bring them to theme park but the timing was not right as the children had a tight schedule such as sleeping and others.

They assumed I will eat breakfast with them but I told them I needed to sleep and they seemed could not bear to let me go." He hoped he will bring his family for vacation as his wife, Aimee Chan had a hard time to take care of their sons.

image.jpg image.jpg image.jpg     Around 4 in the afternoon, Esther Kwan (關詠荷) who was dressed entirely in sportswear appeared in Central with her daughter Brittany. The mother and daughter were chatting as they walked into a convenience store. Perhaps it's because her daughter who is currently going through poverty was hungry, so the two entered the store and approached the chocolate, potato chips, and other junk food. Esther, known for overly doting on her daughter, puts on her glasses to help her daughter choose. Not for long, the two have chosen their bunch of goods and then went on line to pay.
Since it was a rainy day, the lively Brittany ran out and played in the rain after her mother finished paying. To prevent her daughter from running into the streets and catching a cold from getting wet, the overly protective Esther let go of her image, held onto her umbrella and yelled at her daughter as she ran after her. After hearing her mother's command, the obedient Brittany slowed down. Seeing her daughter has slowed down, she immediately caught up and embraced her daughter, both entered the car to be driven back home by the driver.

Jackie Chan named world's second highest-paid actor

Thursday July 2, 2015 Hong Kong

Actor, composer and possibly undead Jackie Chan landed 38th on Forbes' latest celebrity rich list, making him the second highest-paid actor in the world.

While Chan hasn't starred in an American live action film in five years, he's pocketed an estimated 50 million USD over the past 12 months, second only to American actor Robert Downey Jr., who came in 8th place on the list with 80 million USD in earnings. His latest film Dragonblade, which hasn't seen a US release yet despite starring big Hollywood names including Adrien Brody and John Cusack, grossed 120 million USD in China, and it's estimated that Chan took at least a 10 million USD cut.

Chan-branded merchandise has also, as you can expect, contributed massively to his fortune. The actor owns a Segway dealership and a chain of cinemas named for him. And as you may recall, the Jackie Chan Film and Television Academy opened its doors in Wuhan just a couple of months ago, as well. “Jackie Chan is basically the Mickey Mouse of Chinese culture, a celebrity who is so omnipresent that his name has become shorthand,” Grady Hendrix, cofounder of the New York Asian Film Festival, told Forbes.
Of course, endless ass-kissing of the world's biggest political party hasn't hurt.

Forbes' Zack O'Malley explains: Since business success in China ultimately revolves around navigating or benefiting from the government, Chan has a secret weapon in all this earning: membership in the Chinese People’s Political Consultative Conference, a hugely influential government board. Beijing green-lights all films released in China.

It’s an increasingly powerful position. Chinese cinemas have grown at a nearly 33% rate over the past five years, generating just shy of $5 billion in ..... (article cut to save bandwidth)
