The Stephen Chow Sing Chi directed JOURNEY TO THE WEST: CONQUERING THE DEMONS (SAI YAU GONG MOR PIN) was released in Hong Kong on February 7. As of the Lunar third (12th), its cumulative box office was over HK$13 million and crushed the same day releases I LOVE HONG KONG 2013 (2013 NGOR OI HK GUNG HEI FAT CHOI) with its 8.8 million, HOTEL DELUXE (BAK SING JAU DIM) with its 7.4 million and became the Chinese film Lunar New Year box office champion. However, in the total cumulative box office chart, A GOOD DAY TO DIE HARD with over 15 million remained on top of the chart.

Meanwhile JOURNEY swept across the Mainland, it opened nationwide on February 10 and after 3 days it made 220 million yuan RMB. Industry insiders estimated that it would have hope to challenge LOST IN THAILAND's 1.3 billion RMB box office. Today is Valentine's Day, Sing Yeh and Shu Qi's loving stare photo has also been unveiled.
