The actors first went to a parking lot for a "car smashing" ceremony. In a yoga look Coffee climbed on top of a mini bus with Wong Kwong Leung to smash the vehicle together.

Coffee said, "Huh? Is it very sexy? I dress like this when I teach yoga normally! (Chui Bik Ka and Kwok Yik Yui did not steal as much spotlight as you?) They didn't dare to smash it, so I got to. I am a tom boy and athletic, but I have never broken glass. At first I was a little scared, but I liked the thrill!"

Another actor Cheung Kin Sing said, "Busting up a car like this, I feel like I am playing STREET FIGHTER. Earlier the advanced screening audience response was great, with a lot of good reviews and few slams. The lack ..... (article cut to save bandwidth)

The film IP MAN 3 added heavyweight boxer Mike Tyson to the production. Earlier the boxer and Donnie Yen Chi Tan engaged in combat. Chi Tan's elbow accidentally hit his left forefinger, which Tyson later confirmed to be fractured.

Earlier when the film company arranged for a set visit, Tyson wore a white shirt that had a shoe print on it. His left index finger was also bandaged. Speaking of his injuries, Tyson played for sympathy. "At first you only worry whether Yen Chi Tan will be hurt, no one ever considered my safety. Now I am injured and still no one would console me." Tyson was very professional and did not become more cautious in his fight scenes due to the injury. He even insisted on personally performing all of the scenes and received praises from the crew.

Chi Tan pointed out that this time was an accident. In the story they exchanged blows as he met Tyson's punches with Wing Chun. At the time in order to accommodate the camera, he accidentally elbowed Tyson's finger. Chi Tan said, "Tyson was very professional. During the shoot I knew I bummed into him but I didn't think it was that serious. We even continued to shoot. ..... (article cut to save bandwidth)

Ever since it was denied a free-to-air broadcasting license, HKTV has found a way to survive by officially launching online as an Internet shopping network and television station.   Despite the critical acclaim for their dramas, HKTV has essentially halted production of all TV series in the 6 months since its launch due to the licensing issue.  In recent months however, Ricky Wong seems to have found a possible new direction for his station’s survival:  filming ‘micro-movies’ (微電影) for the business partners selling products on HKTV’s Internet shopping platform, HKTV Mall [TN note:  there are various translations of 微電影  currently being used in the industry, including ‘micro film’, and ‘short film’ – for the purposes of this article, I am using the translation ‘micro-movie’.]  With this route, HKTV can still push out new productions while at the same time make more money to continue funding the TV station side of things.  Earlier, HKTV had 2 of its contracted artists – Adrian Wong (黃芷晴) and Bryant Mak (麥子樂) – collaborate with the creative team behind hit series The Menu (導火新聞線) to film the station’s very first micro-movie La Couleur.

 

HKTV’s very first micro-movie La Couleur is actually a promotional piece for fashion brand EQ:IQ.  At only 10 minutes long, the film is helmed by Ben Fong (方俊華), the chief director of HKTV’s hit drama The Menu, and stars Felix Wong’s (黃日華) daughter Adrian Wong partnered with actor Bryant Mak and child actor Oscar (左珀僑).   In a story about love and family, Bryant plays a single father who encounters overseas-educated Adrian – originally strangers from opposite worlds, the 2 of them become acquainted over a painting and later on Adrian helps Bryant .....

The film company this time invited former heavyweight boxing champion Mike Tyson to participate. Many of Chin Yu's male friends asked her to get an autograph for them, but so far she has not been unable to help her friends because he has ten massive bodyguards around him. His wife was also by his side so she did not dare to get close. Chin Yu said that she took a photo with him. In addition Tyson did not talk much, perhaps he was tired from the shoot.

Later Chin Yu will return to Shanghai for the shoot. In the film Chin Yu will take a beating. She said that she still has not shot that scene. Has boyfriend Raymond Lam Fung visited the set yet? Chin Yu said that her boyfriend has been working overseas so he has not visited yet.

Sun Entertainment even signed Coco and will give her a full push later. Ah Jat said, "I wish her all the best in her future. (Do you have to look for another make up artist?) What can I do? Don't get in the way of other people making a living." In the film Ah Jat and Coco even had a passionate bed scene and he had the full support of his wife Kristal .....
