 Actor-producer Raymond Wong is not worried about the upcoming box office takings for his new movie "Youth Fight", despite being scheduled for release at the same time with John Woo's "The Crossing".

 

As reported on On CC News, the producer, who attended the 1st Silk Road International Film Festival launch ceremony in Fuzhou recently, stated that he has full confidence in the new movie.

 

Stating that the movie is director Herman Yau's salute to his 1984 movie "Happy Ghost", Raymond believes that "Youth Fight" will even perform better in cinemas than the comedy classic.

 

"I am not worried. While there will be an epic film in cinemas at the same time, I do believe that the audience will also need lighter movies," he said.

 

Raymond also has faith that the young actors who are playing the leads in "Youth Fight" will be able to attract the younger demographics.

 Cecilia Cheung's management company, AEG, has recently given an ultimatum to her critics - to stop spreading malicious rumours, or face legal action.

 

As reported on Mingpao News, previously, another rumour has surfaced saying that Cecilia is pregnant with her rumoured boyfriend's child.

 

The rumour first began when an anonymous Netizen claimed that the actress had visited a hospital after experiencing nausea, and was told that she was pregnant.

 

It was alleged that the actress has decided to go to France to give birth and will be accompanied by the baby daddy.

 

AEG recently released a statement saying that the allegations are completely baseless and fabricated, and are negatively affecting Cecilia's reputation.

 

The company stressed that they have the right to pursue legal action, and demanded for the deletion of the post.

 

This is not the first or second time a negative rumour has plagued the actress since the news of ex-husband Nicholas Tse's romance made headlines. The actress was rumoured to have taken a solo vacation to Japan after being depressed over the news, and was even alleged to have found new love with a Singaporean restaurateur.

Some commented that Angelababy's prominent chin looks unnatural, and implied that it was the work of plastic surgery.

When asked to comment on the issue, Angelababy's manager Kim expressed her anger over the issue, saying, "We have debunked the rumours numerous times already. It's getting frustrating and there is no need for us to continue refuting it."

She smiled sweetly and nodded: "It was just hot pot! Very lively atmosphere! (Reconciled?) We haven't contacted in a while. I was a bit drunk that night, don't remember much, but everyone was happy!

Iris Chung Choi Yi and Bella Law Chi Kiu in the film FLIRTING IN THE AIR (TONG BAK FU CHUNG SEUNG WON SIU) wore conservative costumes in the film, but they did not hold back in their passion scenes. Bella and Dominic Ho Ho Man hooked up in the firewood shack. Meanwhile, Iris had over 30 takes of a kiss scene with Lam Tsz Chung. "Mr. To (Chapman To Man Chak) during our shoot took his personal camera and waited for us to kiss! I thought that they were all really happy!" If she could choose her first on screen kiss, Iris without any hesitation chose Cecilia Cheung Pak Chi. "Why does the first on screen kiss has to be with a guy, why can't I give it to a girl? If I get to choose, I would choose my idol Cheung Pak Chi!"

Iris and Bella's sexy performance in the film was often a bonus in the film. Yet they understood that being sexy was just a type of performance and could not be a selling point. Bella said, "If the script was good and the story needed it, I felt being sexy wouldn't be a big problem. As long as I am not naked it's OK!" Iris said that being in show business, she had to be cautious with every choice. "I have always had many suitors, but I have to consider carefully. I can't just mess around in everything, so now I have to take a clear look before making a decision. I don't want my work to be affected!"

The "Strongest in the Universe" Donnie Yen Chi Tan and Wang Baoqiang in KUNG FU JUNGLE (YUT GOR YUN DIK MO LUM) shot its final fight scene on the Kwai Chung highway. Although the team blocked two out of the three lanes, the leads still risked their lives as they fought within a meter of a truck passing by. The shoot was filled with danger. Chi Tan was naturally demanding for his own fight scene, but he also encouraged Wang Baoqiang as he hoped to shape his martial art image. Chi Tan said, "Baoqiang has a kung fu background and a lot of potential, I told director (Teddy) Chan Tak Sum that the goal of this scene was make the audience believe that Wang Baoqiang was amazing and quite a fighter!" Wang Baoqiang worshiped and admired his elder Chi Tan. "Brother Tan earlier put together this scene with Southern Fists, Northern Kicks, weapons, and wrestling."

Because the shoot could only last three hours nightly, the scene took 35 days to finish. Director Chan Tak Sum said, "During the fight a truck might scratch them, so they had to dodge vehicles as they fought. It was very difficult. I hope to achieve the result was danger at every turn!"

New director James Hung Ching Ling asked new actors Alex Lam Tak Shun and Evelyn Choi Wing Yan to play a couple in their new film THE SEVENTH LIE (DAI CHUT FONG YIN). Alex did his homework for the performance. "My character has super power, so I studied some foreign series for the role. I was the happiest that James let me keep my facial hair for the performance, because I feel it is an ability. I even trimmed it for work, but Evelyn complained that it hurt a lot!"

Evelyn laughed and explained, "I haven't kissed any guy with facial hair, it was very awkward! (Even more awkward than running on the Causeway Bay streets in a bridal look?) Although it was a run in the busy city streets, the pedestrians coordinated. However if my feet wouldn't be seen, I could actually wear sneakers in place of heels. The director really liked to shoot the entire body, and said every time was the last. After the shoot my feet really hurt!" James said that he loved to prank them, before the shoot he even asked them to rehearse.

Please also do not hurt Siu Fong Ji's Mama (Joan Lin) and publish some untrue reports. If necessary I will give a clear explanation to everyone." Jackie Chan admitted that he was not a suitable father before, from now on he had to be one. At the press conference, Fan Bingbing appeared with an alpaca and shared a lot of her experience.
