Kevin Cheng Extremely Excited to Run into Chow Yun Fat: 'He Changes Something Rotten into Something Magical'
Kevin Cheng, Samantha Ko, Ruco Chan, etc. were promoting the new series "Eye in the Sky". When talking about the running into Chow Yun Fat during work earlier, Kevin laughingly said that he was 'happy to death', and also revealed that he usually does not collect pictures; however, on that that, he specially asked Fat Gor to wait for him, and then he hurriedly grabbed his cell phone to have Fat Gor take a selfie. He said, "He is really incredible at holding the camera...selfie skills absolutely change something rotten into something magical, and also said that he has watched my series".
Kevin also said that he has heard that the feedback for the new series is not bad. When asked about his fried chicken commercial being parodied by netizens, Kevin laughingly said, "The scene was slightly intentional. The advertisement company has also sponsored the series. When it first started, it also talked about me eating fried chicken...this is commercial element, but did not notice that the colour of the upper garment was the same as the commercial, so it means that I also did my best to help them promote!" When talking about his intense kiss with Tavia Yeung in the series, Kevin frankly said that this scene will be frequently inserted into the series to serve as Tavia's memory snippet, and was thus on guard when filming.

The Eric Tsang Chi Wai, DaDa Chan Jing, Ella Chen Chia-Hwa, Wong Cho Lam, Wen Chao and others starred Lunar New Year film LUCKY STAR 2015 (GUT SING GO JIU 2015) held a premiere two nights ago. DaDa and Wen Chao held down the fort. Other guest stars Ai Wai, Owen Cheung Chun Long, Lo Fun, Yu Mo Lin and others attended as well.
Bella Law Chi Kiu complained about DaDa's manager Celia Sze Lim Chi, saying that she threatened her to attend a dinner. DaDa was prepared for the question and the company even assigned two female co-workers to stay by her side and listen to the conversation. DaDa said, "The company has already issued a statement. Untrue reports are in the hands of lawyers to handle, I am not at liberty to comment. I am here to promote the film, I don't want to promote for other people." Was she worried that she would be imagined as a "dinner date star"? She said that she was not worried, and felt that everyone would see her effort. As for her relationship with Bella, she coldly said, "We used to belong to the same company. I treat every girl the same way, like a co-worker. I hope the matter will be properly resolved, I am waiting for the company to handle it." Reporters described her as "experienced" because she too was rumored to have "disappeared" because she did not want to attend Sze Lim Chi's dinner. ..... (article cut to save bandwidth)

Jackie Chan's new film DRAGON BLADE has been scheduled for a release this month in Hong Kong. This film opened first in the Mainland and already accumulated over 600 million yuan RMB. 7 years of planning and the 400 million budget should more or less put pressure on the box office performance, but Jackie Chan could not care less.
"Actually I don't have much pressure when I make movies now, I really don't much care about the performance. From over 70 million before to now this film reaching 500 million in only a few days of release, this record conceivably will be maintained for awhile. Yet two years from now, the Mainland will become the world's top ..... (article cut to save bandwidth)

Daniel Lee praises Jackie Chan's outstanding performance and professionalism
courtesy of on.cc
The Daniel Lee Yan Kong directed film DRAGON BLADE starred Jackie Chan, John Cusack and Adrien Brody. The film not only constructed a set in Hengdian but also shot half the time in Dunhuang. Although they often faced sudden sand storms, the production was affected too greatly.
Used to making big productions, Lee Yan Kong worked with Jackie Chan for the first time. Jackie Chan often played the hero in the past, did he ask for it? He said, "No, he really knows how to act. Only that the his earlier stories were a lot more fun, viewers couldn't focus on his acting. This time had little in that area, Big Brother even said no out take reel for the end credit. All of his previous films had it, but this time he felt it would not be appropriate."
He complimented John Cusack and Adrien Brody on how quickly they got into the production. "John Cusack write scripts as well. When I cited an example he understood it very quickly. Actually I didn't participate in the casting, but the desert shoot was pretty tough. Getting foreign actors was difficult, but in the end I cut out a lot, at least 20 minutes of very entertaining scenes. (How about a director's edition?) I don't really want to. Because finishing it wasn't easy, I don't want to go back. The audience gets more enjoyment in the extended edition, with the short edition the audience doesn't know what the story was like originally."

Best Actor Sean Lau Ching Wan and Huang Xiaoming worked together for the first time on their new film INSANITY (BO FUNG YU). Xiaoming said that he really liked Ching Wan's films. This chance to work with him brought both pressure and excitement. "Since working together I have become afraid of Big Brother Ching Wan. In several scenes we had to beat each other up. On the set he also looked upset. After that I was afraid as soon as I saw him."
Ching Wan joked, "This time I finally am not working with (Louis) Koo Tin Lok!" He also said that this collaboration was very refreshing. "This time changed my mind about Xiamong. He let go completely and privately said that my performance was very mean, he was afraid to see me on the set. I told him that I am afraid of him when he got mad at me in the film!"

The Sandra Ng Kwan Yu film 12 GOLDEN DUCKS (12 GUM NGAP) made HK$ 24 million. Two nights ago Kwan Yu led actors to a celebration in Sheung Wan. Anthony Wong Chau Sun, Simon Yam Tat Wa, Ivana Wong Yuen Chi, Wilfred Lau Ho Lung, BabyJohn Choi Hong Yik, Lo Hoi Pang and Louis Yuen Siu Cheung and others attended. When Kwan Yu appeared, she was dressed like Future Gor from the film. Yet soon Yam Tat Wa discovered that Kwan Yu had an extra sausage in her pants. Kwan Yu joked that it was for the beauties. Later when Kwan Yu invited the actors to appear, she joked that if the men needed "heroic presence" then she took out "red envelopes" (Hung Fung) from her pants. Everyone cracked up.
Would Kwan Yu like to break 30 million? She said, "I hope to have cinema support, as I want it to be like last year and run for over a month. I will leave it to chance!" Kwan Yu said that she has already done her best to promote, which was tougher than making the movie. "This year had especially many films, so the ..... (article cut to save bandwidth)

ONE NIGHT IN TAIPEI (TOI BUT YEH PO TUEN TUEN JUEN)'s Taiwan artists Ili Cheng (Fried Chicken Girl) and Riva Chang (Little Sweetie) came to Hong Kong and promoted with Barbie Liu (Ha Wai Yu) on the radio. Fried Chicken Girl will stay in Hong Kong for five days and butter and condensed milk piggy bun; Barbie also played host and took her to Sheung Wan dried seafood shop and fresh fruit shop, as well as night spots in Lai Kwai Fong. Fried Chicken Girl said that was refreshing. "The last time I came to Hong Kong, it was my first promote at a night spot. The location was very crowded. However Hong Kong girls have great quality, I saw many hot girls. Taiwan doesn't have promotions like this." She said that in Taipei she would mostly chat with friends and listen to music, very few men would try to pick her up.
Little Sweetie has been to Hong Kong many times, but it was the first time she came to promote her new film. She joked that it was her "virgin show". She felt that Hong Kong programs were very wild and felt very comfortable. She pointed out that Lan Kwai Fong had more foreigners and drunks, but she did not get lucky. Sh said, "Every time I went with my male friends, they would ask me to get girls' mobile phone numbers for them. I am a hot property among friends! Unfortunately when I get on the dance floor the guys would jump away. I have always been rough, I couldn't go out in anything too sexy. Otherwise they (her chest) would definitely pop out!"
