The film KUNG FU JUNGLE (YUT GOR YUN DIK MO LUM) was invited to take part in the 58th London Film Festival and held a world premiere there on October 12th. Director Teddy Chan Tak Lum and lead actress Bai Bing earlier already arrived in London. This film festival took place between the 8th and the 19th, showing 248 films over 12 days. It was the largest scale film festival there. The film KUNG FU JUNGLE was invited to participate as the Official Thrill selection and held its world premiere at the Empire Leicester Square.

Director Chan Tak Sum said that the last time he was in London was many years ago already. As soon as he got off the plane he had to attend the technical tests at the premiere cinemas with film festival personnel. When he stepped into the cinema, Director Chan could not help but let out a "wow" because the screen was 26.5 meters wide. It was the largest in all of England and even much larger than Hong Kong's IMAX silver. It was also the largest silver screen that he has seen in his life. He felt very honored and excited about KUNG FU JUNGLE being able to be screened here. He also believed that the results would be very unforgettable for the audience.

The cinema originally arranged for a 15 minute test, but the film ran for 60 minutes and still has not been stopped because the local workers were drawn to it. They did not want to work. Later Director Chan left but the workers remained reluctant to leave and kept watching. He pointed out that the film was about many ..... (article cut to save bandwidth)

Various celebrities have recently opted for the subway as their mean of transportation due to the road closures and diversions caused by the demonstration in Hong Kong.

 

Aside from Julian Cheung and wife Anita Yuen, as well as singer Alex To, who all uploaded selfies of themselves in the subway to show their train experience, China News reported that Hong Kong's Heavenly King Aaron Kwok also did the same recently.

 

Wearing a mask and a cap to avoid recognition from other passengers, Aaron uploaded a photo of himself standing inside a subway train on Weibo on 8 October, and wrote, "This is the first time I saw barricades across the Connaught Road. There were no taxis and my driver was stuck in the traffic. I am going to take the subway."

 

Admitting that he has not taken the subway for ten years, Aaron was in awe with how fast the trains are nowadays.

 TVB actress Sharon Chan has recently dismissed rumours saying that her recent marriage was a shotgun wedding that was held due to unexpected pregnancy.

 

As reported on Sina's Daily News, the actress, who recently married boyfriend of ten years William Lui in Bali, stated that she would not have held a wedding in Bali if she were indeed with a baby.

 

"I would have been very tired!" she said.

 

However, the actress did not deny that the subject of having children has been in their mind since they were dating.

 

"We've thought about it, as we both love children very much," said Sharon. "But my family is not pushing us to have children as soon as possible. They are already happy about the wedding."

 

Nonetheless, Sharon admitted that life has been quite hectic since marriage, what with their bakery launching this month and her new series filming next month.

 

"I am a workaholic, so I don't mind," she said.

The annual TVB awards in Singapore "Starhub TVB Awards" has officially ended. The "My Favourite TVB Male Actor" award was awarded to the "black horse", Ruco Chan for "Ruse of Engagement" and also won one of the "My Favourite TVB Male Characters" award with his role in "Brother's Keeper". When Ruco went up to the stage to accept his award, host of the night, Dodo Cheng, knew that he had shaved his head for his current drama "Cheung Po Tsai", so she purposely told him to take off his hat. Ruco obediently complied with her request. 

After 20 years of being in the industry, it is Ruco's first time getting a TV King award. In the drought of TVB siu sang's these few years, he has been heavily promoted and given many male lead roles. His drama, "All That is Bitter is Sweet" is also being broadcasted before the TVB Anniversary, so logically, he should be quite confident with the TVB TV King award this year. However, this year's competitors turned out to be very strong, including Roger Kwok in "Black Heart, White Soul", Wong Cho Lam's "Come On, Cousin" is also airing soon, Ruco is up for a race! But, getting the Starhub TV King award this time, Ruco is very happy and excited; asked if he feels like he was a "black horse" for the award? He pointed out that the competitors are very strong. This time the award was voted by fans, so he is very grateful. As for whether this award has increased his confidence to claim the TV King award in Hong Kong? He responded :"Go with the flow! I am already very happy with this award."

Intercontinental Group Holdings honorary president Terry Lai (Lady Lai) is the earlier female film distributor who imported many popular Hollywood films into Hong Kong and contributed a lot to the Hong Kong film industry. She also received the Hong Kong Film Award Lifetime Achievement Award. In recent years she has been working hard to promote care for Hong Kong elderly's physical and mental health. A year ago she organized the Community Care Age Foundation, establishing health clinics to provide free assistance to seniors in the areas with dense aging population like Po Tat Estate in Kwun Tong. With professional medical care personnel providing appropriate assistance, seniors would not have to worry about minor illness or pain or even hospitalization.

As the Intercontinental Group Holding celebrates its 45th anniversary, Lady Lai on the 18th (Saturday) will hold a charity fund raising walk at the Peak in the morning to support the Community Care Age Foundation. As even more health clinics would hopefully be set up in more areas. The next target would be Sham Shui Po. At the same time the event hoped to draw everyone's attention to have health clinic assistance area in all 98 districts of Hong Kong for elders in need.

Lady Lai said, "Hong Kong made the jump from a small fishing harbor to the Pearl of the Orient completely due to our parents and grandparents' hard work. Today it is our time to repay them. Regrettably lately our environment has become very noisy and disturbing. I hope this 'walk for senior' event would be able to bring out everyone's charitable hearts so seniors can peacefully rest at home. Everyone loves home, loves their community with harmony."

Candy Yuen Ka Man yesterday promoted her new film with Sharon Hsu Wei-En in Tsuen Wan. Two actors who played zombies accompanied them. Yuen Ka Man admitted that later she will perform in the buff in Wong Jing's new film but denied that she took the initiative to stick to Louis Koo Tin Lok. She was not familiar with him at all. She only loved the toy models that Goo Jai collected.

Yuen Ka Man in the new film played a female warden. In one scene she wore a tailored leather costume and whipped Andy Tien (On Chi Kit). She said that the film performed well at the box office she would not mind wearing it for Halloween again. She also said that the scene left red marks all over On Chi Kit's body. Thus after the beating she hug him and said sorry. Luckily he did not mind, but she worried that she might suffer retribution. Speaking of her fully nude performance in the upcoming Wong Jing film, she at first only said, "During the shoot I will be naked, but how it will turn out I don't know. I haven't worked with this director before, I don't know how it will be edited." Later she finally confirmed that it will be an all nude performance.

In addition, she was rumored to have taken the initiative to stick to Goo Jai. She said that she did not understand why such a rumor would appear. Although Goo Jai produced NAKED AMBITION 3D (3D HO CHING), they did not have ..... (article cut to save bandwidth)

As the "Occupy Central" movement continues in Hong Kong, a rumor spread online that the propaganda ministry that was responsible for public opinion in the Mainland has ordered its tens of thousands of the so-called "five cents" "internet commentators" to start a "public opinion" attack online against Hong Kong artists who supported "Occupy central". The authority has already issued model essay that were similar to "guidance" for "five cent" to follow the related logic and wording to discredit those people as "traitor artists".
