The Eric Tsang Chi Wai produced new film GOLDEN JOB (WONG GUM HING DAI) performed well. Two nights ago at a charity banquet he revealed that it already made over 100 million yuan RMB in the Mainland. He hoped that the film would perform well after the Mid Autumn Festival holiday.

Chi Wai happily said that the most important was the good response. "We promoted a lot. This film was made for the five of them. As long as they are happy then it's fine. Later we will promote in Singapore and Malaysia. We will also attend audience appreciation events in Hong Kong. We will split up in hopes of going to more cinemas. We truly are 'thankful'." As for a sequel, Chi Wai said that they would not plan for it so soon. Right now he would like to rest the most, because the film took 11 months to make and they almost went all over the world. Where else would he like to shoot in and how would he bring back his character? Chi Wai joked, "Let's go to Africa. We can make a prequel too."

Athena Chu Yan and Louis Cheung Kai Chung yesterday attended the new film THE LINGERING (GOO JAT)'s premiere in Shenzhen. Cheung Kai Chung said that at first he was very happy to work with Chu Yan for the first time, but when he found out that he and Chu Yan would play mother and son he immediately knew it was a horror film. However if they played a couple it would actually be even scarier. Chu Yan also said that when she heard Cheung Kai Chung would play her son, she could not believe it. Luckily with special effect make up she was not worried. In the film the mother and son relationship gave them inspiration for their own relationships with their children, and would cherish those around them. As for the secret of marriage, Cheung Kai Chung revealed that his wife Kay Tse On Kay gave him some advice. "Marriage is different from dating, it won't be as romantic as it was before. We have to take care of the children together, handle a lot of things in life. However the relationship is a state of mind issue; my wife taught me to think back to the first time I saw her, then going to dinner and the movies with her. I tried to go on dates with her with the emotions of the first time I saw her, maintain that state of mind and keep the relationship young".

Paulyn Sun Kai Kwan, Justin Cheung Kin Sing, Deon Cheung Chung Chi yesterday gave away film coupons that resembled paper currency for their film PROJECT GUTENBERG. Cheung Chung Chi screamed, "free money" to attract pedestrians. Cheung Kin Sing joked that it was like he was screaming "robbery".

Sun Kai Kwan gave away "money" for the first time. Because it was not real money she was not worried about causing a ruckus. Instead she thought it was a lot of fun. In the film she played the female manager of a criminal organization and had her share of action scenes. She said that she was not an action actor, so she had concerns about gun fights, explosions and escapes. She said, "In one scene the chandelier fell from above and landed right by my feet. For realism I tried to stand closer. Although it was fiber glass, I had less stunt experience so I was worried about my position. Before the shoot I was afraid that shrapnel would cut my face. Luckily it went smoothly." She had many opportunities to be in scenes with Fat Gor. She happily said, "Fat Gor is my idol forever, each time I see him I would get very nervous."

Cheung Chung Chi and Cheung Kin Sing both played criminal organization members. Cheung Chung Chi said, "Some fans asked me why I didn't appear in the Chiang Mai scenes after watching the entire movie. Actually I had a beard and sunglasses, so they couldn't recognize me. Fans are really hilarious."

Chau Sau Na in the film is a hotel executive, a loner who is out of touch with the real world. She even has the gall to yell at her superior Michelle Loo (Lo Mik Suet) and order her around. Earlier they shot an office scene, Michelle was pale from being overworked, collapsed on the copier and thus created many scary effects. Chau Sau Na was scared half to death. For this scene, Michelle deliberately put on white make up to create a scary effect. however everyone thought she was more funny than scary. Chau Sau Na even praised how cute she looked and dragged Michelle to take a photo together.

Chau Sau Na for her role had to constantly yell at people loudly in the beginning, even with her superior Lo Mik Suet. She said, "In the film I am always yelling at people. I am a hotel executive. Although Michelle is my superior and the hotel heiress, she is useless. When she can't meet my standards, I would still yell at her. During the shoot my mood is terrible, I constantly have to be very upset. I have to stoke up a fire to yell at people. However with Michelle's white faced goddess it is very hard to yell, sometimes I ..... (article cut to save bandwidth)

The film GOLDEN JOB (WONG GUM HING DAI) yesterday opened in Hong Kong and today in the Mainland and Taiwan. Producer Eric Tsang Chi Wai, director Chin Ka Lok, actors Dior Cheng Yi Kin, Michael Tse Tin Wa and Jerry Lamb Hiu Fung yesterday visited five cinemas in Hong Kong to thank the audience for its support.

As for the Hong Kong opening day box office success and good audience response, Chin Ka Lok said that he remembered when he directed for the first time he did not dare to face the box office. This time he originally was not nervous, but Ekin kept asking him about it and made him very nervous -- like at the moment of the Hong Kong Film Award announcement. Ekin said, "Chan Siu Chun got so nervous that he didn't come. He didn't dare to face it!" Ka Lok said that he had to thank the most Tsang Chi Wai and Jackie Chan for their monetary and other unseen support. He also hoped that the five brothers would be good.

Would the director have to take them to dinner for a good box office performance? Ka Lok said that everyone has already set him up for dinner. Actually it was just respect from everyone. He said that Tin Wa should be the one paying for dinner. Tin Wa joked, "We eat together, the dishes are on the table. Please, dinner!"

Jennifer Yu Heung Yi and Fish Liew Chi Yu two nights ago attended their new film DISTINCTION (FEI TUNG FAN HEUNG)'s charity premiere. Yu Heung Yi in the film played a student without any make up. She said that friends did not recognize her until after a few scenes. "My skin is great, I just seem to have no brows but I can accept that. At first I suggested to the director to perform without make up because students don't use make up. As an actor resemblence to the character is the most important, so when I heard people say that they couldn't recognize me I was pretty happy." Yu Heung Yi said that her appearance in the film probably would not be the type that secondary school guys would like. She was a very studious girl, with glasses slid down the nose, hunchback and double chin. "When you feel I am pretty in the film, then you probably really like me. However Yu Heung Yi's natural look is OK."

Liew Chi Yu played a special education student. During the audition the director thought that it would be best for her not to promote so no one would expect Liew Chi Yu in the film. She even attended special education classes, studying their essence and gesture. When she put on the school uniform even parents thought she was a new student. She felt that was a praise. She also chatted and played with other students and everyone were very friendly.

Gordon Lam Ka Tung yesterday appeared on a ViuTV program. He said that he just wrote two police stories about atonement. He was very happy that he has already found investors. After inspection production would begin. "The boss asked me to perform and I would try to, but I am afraid that producing and acting together would blind me very easily. I would have to get help."

The Performing Artist Guild next week will meet with Chief Executive Carrie Lam Cheng Yuet Ngor. As the guild vice president Ka Tung said, "President (Louis) Koo Tin Lok will attend. The Chief Executive wants to hear some suggestions on how to assist this industry. We have a lot of limitations on location shoots. It is very hard to hand in a proposal a year in advance in Hong Kong, unlike Hollywood where a project can take 5 years. In Hong Kong it would take a year and a half at most. I hope to get more assistance in this area and have a little more leniency."
