Louis Koo (古天樂) attended the press conference of Paradox (貪狼) film on 13 March and Sammo Hung (洪金寶) praised Louis was the martial arts star whom he had been waiting for 10 years: "Louis used to be stiff when filming action films and he is improving now."

Ai Wai, Rachel Lam Hei Tung and Lisa Ch'ng Si Ming two nights ago attended the film L.A. LOL (NGOR LO POR MEI GIT FUN) premiere. The film would only be at three cinemas locally. Ai Wai said that he was still confident and admitted that this time he answered to his mother as a lead actor. "She is always comparing me to Chow Yun Fat. She of course doesn't understand how amazing Chow Yun Fat is. She says that Chow Yun Fat went to Hollywood to make movies. This time I kind of went to Hollywood to make the movie. Of course if in the future I can win an award or two, like the oldest rookie award, she would be even happier!"

Shawn Yue Man Lok, Janice Man Wng Shan, Max Zhang Jin, and Cecilia So Lai Shan yesterday attended the Sun Entertainment Culture's film showcase and promoted their new film THE BRINK (KONG SAU). Playing a villain this time, Lok Jai said that the toughest part was the ending because it took a month to finish. They not only had to visit many locations but also had to shoot underwater. Each actor could only work for a certain period of time, then they had to rest.

Speaking of the underwater fight scene, Lok Jai had stress. "Working on the underwater scene I had to remove my goggles and oxygen mask. Under water it was very dark and I couldn't see anything. Once I almost got into trouble. I forgot to remove the lead, so I couldn't get out of the water no matter how hard I swan. I kept taking in water, luckily I was fine. However I had stress from going into the water. (Did you feel it was dangerous?) Before the shoot I already knew it was dangerous, I was the only one with a diving certification. Zhang Jin and (Gordon) Lam Ka Tung didn't. I already wasn't the one in the most danger." Although each other he stressed about getting into the water, Lok Jai said that he would not stop taking similar roles.
