The foreign film INSURGENT two nights ago held its Hong Kong premiere at iSquare cinema. Wylie Chiu Shek Chi, Gordon Lam Ka Tung and other guests attended.

Chiu Shek Chi appeared with a new short hair cut. She said that the last time she cut her hair short was for her second photo collection many years ago. "My boyfriend in the past only felt that he was cool, now he realizes that actually I can accept such a look." Chiu Shek Chi later will work on a musical with Fiona Sit Hoi Kei and Petrina Fung Bo Bo.

Lam Ka Tung said that lately he has been busy with his new film GET OUTTA HERE (SEI HOI DI LAI), which he hoped will be able to be released in the middle of the year. He said, "Since I am the producer, it's rather stressful. The boss says that my production rate is low. Actually I am picky and need more time for discussions, because I believe that Hong Kong viewers don't just want a star studded cast. Basically, the boss has confidence in me, he just have a few complaints."

Lam Ka Tung also said that he expected the production would go over budget. He said, "I am not the type that is all about money, the most important is the result is pretty. Lately I have been so stressed that I lost hair and grew head pimples."

Vicki Zhao Wei worked with Louis Koo Tin Lok and Wallace Chung Han Leung on Johnnie To Kei Fung's new film THREE ON THE ROAD (SAM YUN HUNG) in Guangzhou. This was the first time that Zhao Wei worked with To Sir. Who knew if rookie director Zhao Wei and master director To Sir would set off any spark?

Zhao Wei and Koo Tin Lok only guest starred in 12 GOLDEN DUCKS (12 GUM NGAP). This time they worked together officially, so both felt very fresh.

However they demonstrated their appetite before their acting because they were caught with Chung Han Leung at a Chaozhou restaurant in Guangzhou. They even posed for a photo with the boss lady. It was already early morning so they were described as "inventory eating trio" online.

Charmaine Sheh (佘詩曼) wore a sexy dress to attend an event and expressed that she had been filming series in Macau and specially returned to Hong Kong. She said: "I will film until end April and need to go to Macau and Hong Kong during the filming."

When asked if she could resist the nice food in Macau, Charmaine said: "It is hard and the director loves to eat. 2 nights ago, it was Nancy Sit's (薛家燕) birthday and we ate 5 meals from 3pm to 12am. But I get to eat 3 meals as my filming starts at night."

When mentioned about TVB was promoting Grace Chan (陳凱琳), Sisley Choi (蔡思貝) and Moon Lau (劉佩玥), Charmaine said: "This is good. (Not afraid they will reduce your chances to film?) I am not afraid as many series need many artistes to film. (Able to protect your 'ah jie' position?) There is no hierarchy and we are artistes."

Andrew Lam Man Chung yesterday attended an event in Lai Chi Kok. He said that he will be a smile ambassador and promote the message of smile.

Ah Chung yesterday promoted his new film FULL STRIKE (CHUEN LIK KAU SAT) and played badminton. He said that he was 14 when he first played badminton. At the time he was old enough to join a youth center, but later he made an important decision and went to play soccer; he also said that the second time he played badminton he was already playing against Bao Chunli and Wang Lin in the film. Ah Chung lately seemed to be a little thinner. He said that he lost 1 or 2 kilograms. He wanted to have Nick Cheung Ka Fai's abdominal muscles. Did he want to become an idol? he said that his substance has never been under suspicion.

Ah Chung also said that FULL STRIKE received decent response and endless laughter earlier at the Osaka Film Festival. Will he make another film? He said, "Lately I have been working on a script with comedy elements." He said that he did not know who will be in the cast. Will he ask Josie Ho Chiu Yi to invest? He said that this was a good suggestion; he also said that he relied on instincts to play badminton.

Before leaving the team, Gong Li and the team took photos. Kwok Fu Sing, Xiao Shenyang and others who have not completed the production could not be more envious.

Gong Li before the production put a lot of effort into studying the role of White Bone Spirit. She had three major fight scenes with Sing Sing, Law Chung Him and Xiao Shenyang. First time on the wire, Gong Li had no stage fright at all. Under the master action director Sammo Hung Kam Bo's coordination, form and aesthetic visuals merged.

Gong Li did not return home for the Lunar New Year. Instead she stayed with the team and focused on her role, which left the team with nothing but praise for her professionalism. Gong Li during the shoot often treated the team to snacks and even took the team to dinner. No wonder when she left everyone was reluctant to part with her. Filmko chief Alex Wong Hoi Fung also complimented Gong Li on her professionalism and was proud of the unity of the team.

MONKEY has been slated for a 2016 Lunar New Year release. ..... (article cut to save bandwidth)

The Hong Kong Film Directors' Guild silver anniversary banquet and annual award ceremony took place two nights ago. Andrew Lau Wai Keung took office as the new president. He said that in the future the organization will cut costs as he hoped to pass the torch.

Lau Wai Keung also thanked his wife. Because he will be very busy after becoming president, he will have even less time to spend with his family. Thus he had to turn the responsibility of raising their children to his wife. The Guild also has plans to bring back director training courses in the future.

Wong Kar Wai also attended two nights ago. He said that at the first Directors' Guild banquet, he only made his second films. Yet at the time it became the Guild's recommended film, which was a controversy.
