The Felix Chong Man Keung directed, Chow Yun Fat, Aaron Kwok Fu Sing, Zhang Jingchu starred film PROJECT GUTENBERG (MO SEUNG) will open on September 30th. The film company even released a trailer and poster. After working together in COLD WAR 2 (HONG JIN 2), Fat Gor and Sing Sing had many scenes together this time. In the film Fat Gor played a counterfeit currency organization mastermind "Painter", while Sing Sing played a clueless painter as they teamed up to create a super realistic counterfeit currency.

With many gun fight scenes Fat Gor looked very heroic and inevitably reminded people of Mark Gor in A BETTER TOMORROW. In one scene Fa Gor light a cigarette with fake U.S. currency, which felt like a homage to BETTER! In addition, the film was shot on location in Hong Kong, Canada and Thailand and had three major gun fights. In the trailer the rocket blast took place in Thailand.

The Kathy Yuen (Tong Yi) and Daichi Harashima starred Emperor Motion Picture WHEN SUN MEETS MOON (MAU YUT MAU YUET) will open soon. Due to the film's 90s background, the film company released YES! card at different cinemas to bring back everyone's memory from their youth. To further ignite the fever, it made WHEN SUN MEETS MOON film special edition YES! card.

Tong Yi put on a school uniform again and appeared in a store that was full of nostalgia for a promotion film shoot. Tong Yi said that she never thought that she would be able to become a YES! card star. She said, "When I was in school I didn't have much allowance. If I twisted one that I didn't really like, I would exchange it with my sister for YES! cards of idols like (Vivian) Chow Wai Man and (Charlie) Yeung Choi Nei, or used several ordinary blank cards to exchange for a matte card; I never expected to be able to see my own YES! card today. That glitter card with me and Daichi stargazing is especially pretty."

SAM AND TAM HAPPY TOGETHER PART II concerts will take place between August 5th and 12th. Yesterday at the press conference, Sam Hui Koon Kit and Alan Tam Wing Lun appeared in courier uniforms and performed a preview. Sam played his guitar and performed WORLD LIKE CHESS, Beatles hits and FRIENDS. Sam even suggested to Sunny Wong for a sexy choreography at the concert. Would Alan dance? He asked, "Do I pole dance?"

The host asked Hui Koon Kit and Tam Wing Lun if they owed a lot of tickets. Alan joked that Sam has many relatives in Hawaii. Sam said that he would give his all because this time part II would be different from part I. Alan said, "Last year Sam only used 1/3 of his hits, he still has 2/3. This time will truly be a hit open archive. To sing them all though would take more than a week!" Sam said, "I would say the other 2/3 of the songs, some old songs would have new lyrics. I hope the audience would get a sense of freshness!" Alan said, "Sam's songs are very philosophical, heartwarming and inspirational!" Today tickets to the 8 shows would go on sale. Would they add more show? Alan joked not to add day shows as he wanted Sam to have time for his grandchildren. Sam said, "If it's fun I would add as many shows as I can!" Then they received gold microphones from the event and cut the ..... (article cut to save bandwidth)

Would Wai Ka Hung have to a beating in the film/ He said, "I am guest starring as a manager, I don't have to fight. If I don't perform well then the boss and the director would hit me. I rarely am surrounded by so many girls, I really like it. (Are you worried that your fiance would be jealous?) No, I am just working. She is very gracious. She probably believes that few would have their eyes on me." He revealed that he was planning for the wedding to take place on October 6th, but he did not know whether he would be able to book a location.

Artistes Jessica Hsuan and Kenneth Ma went to Central to attend a beauty centre event. On stage, Jessica received a permanent VIP card. MC Luk Ho Ming said that Kenneth's VIP is quite special, as his family members can use it, but 'BB' (girlfriend Jacqueline Wong) has not become his family member yet. Jessica immediately asked who 'BB' was. Luk Ho Ming said the name: "Jacqueline. The surname is Wong". Kenneth playfully said, "Then I'll use it for a proposal".

After the event, the two accepted an interview. Jessica denied not knowing whom Jacqueline was: "I know. Talked as though wedding bells are near, so wanted to get updated". She also suggested that Kenneth have a baby as soon as possible so that there is energy to play with the baby, and she also asked Kenneth whether he had marriage plans, which frightened Kenneth to say, "No, no, no. Don't write it to this point so quickly...." Jessica also asked how long the two have been dating. Kenneth awkwardly said, "Not that long. Getting to know [one another]". Regarding Jacqueline entering her thirties soon, Jessica said in bewilderment: "Thirty only? Actually, this (marriage) has no age limit. I am an example".

Wants to Collaborate as an Unconventional Couple

Kenneth was evidently nervous today. He frankly said that Jessica is one of his goddesses: "Beside her, I am more restrained. Did not sweet-talk as much". Jessica praised him as giving people the feeling of resembling Gallen Lo, with the both of them being shy and silly: "May not be really sharp initially, but slowly oozes out his ability the more he works. Also good at acting!" The two are the netizens' choice for TV king and TV queen, but they have actually ..... (article cut to save bandwidth)

Earlier, Chrissie Chau Sau Na and Louis Cheung Kai Chung worked on the poster shoot for their film HOTEL SOUL GOOD (NUI WONG JONG DOH JING). The producer suddenly presented a birthday cake to celebrate Sister Na's birthday with the team, giving her quite a surprise. The 22nd would be Sister Na's actual birthday. When she got her first birthday cake this year that day, she did not expect to celebrate her birthday so far in advance. The day of the poster shoot happened to be the birthday of Sister Na's assistant. Sister Na prepared a birthday cake for her assistant to surprise her with, but the director, the producer and Ah Chung also prepared a cake for Sister Na for a double surprise!

Sister Na said that she has received a lot of cakes on past birthdays, one year she got over 20. To a dessert lover like Sister Na, holding back would be difficult. Thus one of her birthday wish was, "eating all I want without getting fat!" She would spend this birthday at work as well, but she not only had no complaint but also was very happy that everyone would celebrate with her. She felt that working on her birthday gave her even more positive energy and motivation to perform well. Last year was a harvest year for Sister Na. Her film 29+1 received many Hong Kong Film Award nominations. Sister Na was even nominated for Best Actress. Thu

Chrissie Chau Sau Na yesterday attended a fashion label event. Recently Sister Na has been working with Louis Koo Tin Lok and Julian Cheung Chi Lam on two films. She said that everyday after getting to the set she had to think about which movie she was working on, but after putting on her costume she would definitely be able to tell them apart. The characters were very different, in one she was a forensic scientist and the other was a crime film. Would she have any intimate scene? Sister Na said no. Would she no longer want to work on sexy scenes? She denied that. "I have no restriction on what character I would play, sexy or not it's not up to me to decide. I still choose movies from scripts."

As for her birthday next Tuesday, she revealed that she would have to work so she would celebrate with the team. She said that no man has asked her out, instead she was the happiest about working.
