The Hong Kong Film Award Association recently noticed that tickets to the award shows were being sold online. Yee Tung Sing reminded everyone that the Hong Kong Film Awards had no ticket sale for the public, anyone caught would be handed over to the police. In his four years as the chair, he has seen something similar every year. Once a crew member posted an admission pass online and was counterfeited, it has also been lost and stolen at the venue then resold. "We worry about people being .....

The Louis Koo Tin Lok, Raymond Lam Fung, Gordon Lam Ka Tung, Chrissie Chau Sau Na, Kevin Cheng Ka Wing, Louis Cheung Kai Chung and others starred film P STORM (P FUNG BO) will open on April 4th. Two nights ago the actors attended the premiere. Boss and producer Raymond Wong Pak Ming announced the production of G STORM (G FUNG BO). The film's "soul character" Goo Jai will continue to participate. The shoot will start in August but because the content had to be kept secret no detail was known for now. First time addition to STORM, Lam Fung said that due to his busy schedule he would not have time for G STORM. He also said that the most memorable in P STORM was fighting in slippers in prison. Another scene of strangling Sister Na in the narrow space of a helicopter was also difficult!

Lam Fung and Sister Na spoke to the media together. Lam Fung said that the film had ..... (article cut to save bandwidth)

The late superstar "Gor Gor" Leslie Cheung Kwok Wing on April 1st 2003, April Fool's Day jumped from the Hong Kong Mandarin Oriental Hotel and ended his short life. Although Gor Gor has already passed for 16 years, his fans have only missed him more. Over the years they have been remembering him in different formats. "Gor Gor's" beloved Daffy Tong Hok Tak every year would eulogize his late love. Tong Tong on social media posted a photo of him and Gor Gor in their youth and quoted two verses from Gor Gor's classic song WIND CONTINUES TO BLOW, "Many happy memories of the past, why not chase them with you".

Fans meanwhile have already turned sorrow into strength as most peacefully remember this idol of a generation. Many fans as usual would remember their idol outside the hotel with flowers. Fans from around the world would send floral arrangement, from the Mainland, Australia, Korea, Japan, Malaysia and other locations flowers would turn ..... (article cut to save bandwidth)

The film STILL HUMAN (LUEN LOK YUN) yesterday held a charity premiere. Director Oliver Chan Siu Kuen and Anthony Wong Chau Sun attended. They liked to interact with the audience and have close contact; Chan Siu Kuen pointed out that even with the audience's pointed questions, with Chau Sun there they definitely would be answered. She also remembered, "A foreign girl said that her grandpa also was wheel chair bound, then hug me and cried. I got teary eyed too."

Speaking of Eason Chan Yik Shun catching a student on the phone at an university forum, feeling disrespected and asking the student to leave, Chau Sun said that he would calmly handle it. "It would depend on the situation, on whether others were affected. Now everyone is like this. If it was me, I would join in with a mobile phone and compete for a hour. No one needs to get upset. I would ask him, 'You are doing big business, do you have billions going up and down? How is the market trending? Give me some tips?' The person would be embarrassed and everyone would get a laugh."

Jet Li (Lee Nin Kit) two days ago came from Singapore to Hong Kong and represented the Hong Kong One Foundation to donate HK$ 1 million to Mother's Choice. He said that he chose to donate to this organization because he felt children were the future pillars of the community. He hoped that after growing up the children would learn to cherish and pay back the community.

Everyone was very excited about Lee Nin Kit's surprise appearance. Earlier rumored to be ill, Lee Nin Kit looked spirited and sounded strong. Mother's Choice thanked Lee Nin Kit for the donation with a sculpture titled My First Dream as a show of appreciation.

The film P STORM (P FUNG BO) opened today in the Mainland. Two days ago director David Lam Tak Luk and stars Kevin Cheng Ka Wing, Raymond Lam Fung, Gordon Lam Ka Tung, Chrissie Chau Sau Na, Louis Cheung Kai Chung, Patrick Tam Yiu Man, Adam Pak Tin Nam, Janelle Sing (Anika Xia Yan), Monna Liu Mengna appeared at the Guangzhou premiere.

The event prepared tags and key terms for the team to interact with the audience with. Cheung Kai Chung got the "funny spot" tag. In the film he expressed the pressure of housing for Hong Kong young people with "Hong Kong youth sees prison as their goal in life." Many who have seen the film were pleasantly surprised and said that Cheung Kai Chung stole the funny spot in the four anti corruption film.

In addition, as the new addition Lam Fung worked with Goo Jai again after 18 years and got the "betrayal" tag. He said that in the film he played a rich kid Cho Yuen Yuen. The name might sound a little cute but his personality was extreme and odd, almost to the point of being deranged.

Many viewers were veteran TVB series fans and were more than curious about Lam Fung's villain debut. They were surprised. Speaking of how ..... (article cut to save bandwidth)

Ti Lung yesterday with his wife Tao Man Ming attended his film THE KID FROM THE BIG APPLE 2: BEFORE WE FORGET's charity screening. Co-star Shaun Tam Chun Yin was in Vietnam and unable to attend.

The film wrapped up production two years ago. As for not being able to be released in Hong Kong, did he feel any regret? Ti Lung said, "This industry has highs and lows. The movie was made in Malaysia, it was quite a hit there. Other stuff like Hong Kong distribution is not something that actors can control. I hope those interested would support the film, since fewer people would invest in family films. For example THE WANDERING EARTH was very popular in the Mainland, but in Hong Kong it didn't get much publicity." He also said that he would like to watch a movie with his grandchildren when he would have the time so they would understand the job.
