The Dayo Wong Tsz Wah and Charmaine Sheh Sze Man starred Lunar New Year film AGENT MR. CHAN (DUNG DUK DUT GUNG) will open on the 15th the Lunar New Year's Eve. Yesterday the film company released its official trailer. In it the Tsz Wah played special agent Mr. Chan shone with numerous costumes and comedy, but this Hong Kong version 007 due to leaving Ah Sheh at the altar not only was assigned an impossible mission by her but also became the source of Ah Sheh's rage. "If there has to be a time limit to mess with you, then I hope it will be ten thousand light years!" Tze Wah immediately corrected her, "Light year is an unit of distance."

Tze Wah in the trailer not only displayed Mr. Chan's special agent strengths: brains, cool, appearance, ability to fight, and a way with women, but also many fantastic costumes, including high waist jeans, backpack, messy hair, fog up glasses, a fanny pack and a duck face plastic mask. His colleague C Kwan ridiculed him and Tze Wah tossed him to the wall.

In addition, Tze Wah also had a cosplay and an electronic head gear look. After putting on the thick goggle head gear his eyes were magnified to almost cockeyed, as Ah Sheh waited with heavy punishment to torture him. The end of the trailer even had a surprise as Tze Wah sang.

I will not do what Linda has done before as we are 2 different person and hope the audiences will accept the new blood."

She says: "Honestly, my husband and I do not spend much time together as we are always in different countries and should spend two person world first.

Cheung Kin Sing said that he and Fat Cheong had a vomit scene and almost hit Lady Ng. He also revealed that off camera he, Eric Kwok and Fat Cheong would laugh themselves silly. In particular Eric Kwok's serious acting was funny. Working with him was not easy because holding back laughter was very tough. Eric said, "I really don't know why they think it's so funny, but during the shoot I laughed too. The skull cap look during the vomit scene is too crazy!"

Eric also pointed out that this script had a lot of lines, which was also the reason he took the role as it was a huge challenge to him.

We cannot accept it and feel there is insufficient love. It has been a long time since I use vulgarity and beat people and we should have more tolerance and be more kind-hearted. Mia and that girl are almost the same age and I am clueless about the happenings now." Anita believes the parent should be severely punished and says: "Can Hong Kong law allow prosecutor without the defence lawyer? I think the biggest punishment is their inner heart."
