Kathy Yuen (Tong Yi) two nights ago attended the film THE SPY WHO DUMPED ME's Hong Kong premiere. Boyfriend Ken Hung Cheuk Lap was not present. She said that she loved to watch movies and run alone. She also said that this film's subject was attractive, the genre that she has always wanted to try. She said, "I have always given people a fragile impression, the one that would get hit. Actually I want to try to be the one who hits. Now I am learning to fight. I hope to show people that I have a tough side. While I am young I want to try everything."

Tong Yi revealed that in her new film COLD DETECTIVE (SUN TAM DAI JIN) she played a cop and would have action and chase scenes. She would work with Sean Lau Ching Wan and Raymond Lam Fung, but she would have more scenes with Lam Fung. With Carlos Chan Ka Lok she would have romance. She even thought that she and Ka Lok were rather well matched and wanted to become an onscreen couple with him. Was she afraid that her boyfriend would become jealous? She said no, because good looking guys and girls would definitely match well.

The new director Sunny Chan Wing Sun directed, Francis Ng Chun Yu, Ken Wong Tak Bun, Poon Chan Leung and Tony Wu Tsz Tung starred film MEN ON THE DRAGON (YIK LAU DAI SHOOK) went against the tide at the box office just like the uncles in the film. The film opened on the 2nd to only HK$ 220,000, but because of good of word of mouth and the director and the actors' nonstop cinema audience appreciation promotion it grew stronger and stronger. Its box office steadily rose as after 20 days (as of the 21st) it already accumulated HK$ 7 million. From the current trend, the audience still kept growing. On Monday 4,454 viewers were admitted. The next day it grew to 5,605. The number of cinemas and shows has not dropped. Conceivably it absolutely would have no difficult with breaking HK$ 10 million at the box office.

As for already passing HK$ 7 million at the box office, director Chan Wing Sun was pleasantly surprised. "I have mixed emotions. Hong Kong films that are released in Hong Kong nowadays would have box office performance that is very hard to predict. I would face it normally. Of course I hope it would perform well at the box office. The HK$ 220,000 opening was a little disappointment, because a movie didn't just answer to me, but had the effort of many people. Now the box office is steadily rising, it is very encouraging." The audience response and word of mouth undoubtedly gave new ..... (article cut to save bandwidth)

Adam Pak Tin Nam yesterday was a guest on a Radio Hong Kong program. He happily said that his film THE L STORM (L FUNG BO) opens today and revealed that co-star Louis Koo Tin Lok has melted him. "I am very grateful for the group handsome elders as they taught me a lot. At first I thought Goo Jai was very cool, but whatever I didn't understand he would personally demonstrate until I did. We often chatted on the set, and I realized that he actually was very nice." Did Goo Jai teach him to get a tan? Pak Tin Nam said, "I can't, I sunbathed too much in Australia. I would have freckles. The make up artist told me not to. After getting in the business I learned to pay attention to skincare. Every night I would apply facial and eye masks."

Deeply rooted in the film, the classic Hong Kong style dialogue, plot and action scenes brought back everyone's collective memory and were deeply loved by the Southern audience. In the South a wave of "viewing fever" even began. In particular the clean and crisp fight scene in the film delivered the unique, hot blooded passion in Hong Kong flm and triggered the memory of many Hong Kong film fans.

The "classic Hong Kong style" action was designed by Jackie Chan Stunt Team's ace action director Han Kwan-Hua. This Hong Kong Film Award and Golden Horse Award Best Action Choreography team member even led the JC Stunt Team members to start studying the script months in advance. Beginning with characters and plots, they began conceiving and creating action scenes and conducted a 2 month action training with the actors. Using strong sparring training they honed the actor's action response and action details.

The film company also released an action training video, showing Du Juan, Jennifer Tse Ting Ting, Zhou Xiaofei's action training before the shoot began. Faced with highly difficult fight scenes, each actor seriously trained with every punch and kick to hone into their decent abilities in the film. Hooks, kicks that were filled with power, light and agile dodging and advanced showed their handsome sides thoroughly.

Bruce Tong Kwan Chi, Chris Tong Kwan Yiu and Gladys Li Ching Kwan two nights ago attended their film BIG BROTHER (DAI SI HING)'s audience appreciation event. The Tong Brothers revealed that their father Tong Chun Yip saw the film already in Beijing and was pleasantly surprised that their performance was much better than he expected. Kwan Chi said, "Papa felt that for our first film it was acceptable, we would have to pay attention to our dialogue delivery pace and how natural it is. Mommy felt that sometimes I did well, sometimes little brother did well. I am very happy that friend's, online and outside responses have been mostly positive." The brothers hoped to make a war film next. Younger brother Kwan Yiu felt that playing a soldier would be cool and able to show his masculinity. They would be willing to try playing opposite each other as hero and villain.

Li Ching Kwan has worked on commercials, web drama and films. She did not dare to call herself "big sister" as she humbly said that she did not consider herself full of experience. Her ViuTV reality show last year will air soon, she was also working on the TVB series LIFE ON THE LINE. She had no problem with going against herself and was not worried that TVB would be upset. She explained, "Now I am not signed to any television station. Last year the series was an one year contract and I have worked with different platforms. I never thought about whether I have upset TVB ..... (article cut to save bandwidth)

The Chin Ka Lok directing debut GOLDEN JOB (WONG GUM HING DAI) will open in September in Hong Kong. Earlier he and lead actors Dior Cheng Yi Kin, Jordan Chan Siu Chun, Michael Tse Tin Wa and Jerry Lamb Hiu Fung worked on the music video for the theme song. They were dressed in black as they worked on the shoot at a closed hot pot shop. The film was shot on location in Inner Mongolia, Montenegro, Hungary, Japan, Taiwan and other places. Lam Hiu Fung was the happiest that the brothers went to many places and almost had every meal together. Tse Tin Wa complained that he did not get to go to Montenegro, because he had no scene there. Chin Ka Lok said that the explosion scene there was the most fun, because they had assistance from Eric Tsang Chi Wai's friend for a location to shoot.

GOLDEN JOB had its share of car and action scenes, so injuries were inevitable. Luckily they had more scares than actually getting hurt. Ekin was injured after a few days at work. Siu Chun also hurt his hip and could not lie down for awhile. He had to kneel on the ground to ease the pain. Siu Chun said to director Chin Ka Lok, "You are lucky it's you, normally I would have left a long time ago and quit!"

The film MEN ON THE DRAGON (YIK LAU DAI SHOOK)'s Francis Ng Chun Yu, Nancy Wu Ting Yan, Ken Wong Tak Bun and director yesterday were guest presenters at the Hong Kong Indoor Dragon Boat Championship. Ting Yan and Tak Bun even tried indoor dragon boat on the spot and looked convincing. With an old wound acting up, Chun Yu walked around with a cane and joked that they could make WOMEN ON THE DRAGON (YIK LAU DAI SUM) for Ting Yan.

Chun Yu admitted that his old wound would act up every few years. The injury was from practicing a performance for TVB anniversary years ago. He was so used to the pain that he could laugh from it, because he could not do anything else.

Speaking of the film reaching HK$ 6 million at the film box office, Chun Yu said that for a non Lunar New Year film the performance and word of mouth was already great. "Earlier I even complained about the lack of cinema circuits for release, now we have to talk about not spreading ourselves too thin because we want to keep the 80% admission rate at every show." Chun Yu disagreed that now there is no Hong Kong film. As long as people would make movies for Hong Kong people then they would be Hong Kong films. As for whether he would continue to attend audience appreciation events to pump up sales, he said, "Of course I hope the box office would have ..... (article cut to save bandwidth)

The Julian Cheung Chi Lam starred STORM film series has reached its third installment. The new film THE L STORM (L FUNG BO) during the shoot ran into a storm. No wonder the team joked that it was rather "appropriate". Earlier the team applied for road block shoot n Sha Tin. Due to the storm the production progress was hindered! Luckily Chilam, Patrick Tam Yiu Man and Toby Chan Ting Yan still worked despite the tropical cyclone warning signal 3 and finished the shoot in time.

At the time the team prepared a prop armored vehicle and several cars for a car chase. Chilam and Ah Tam began the chase with rifles and submachine guns in hand and spent several thousand prop bullets. They even set off "real spark" as both were injured from the prop bullet's "spark". The crew saw the scratch over Chilam's eyelid and treated it right away. Later he continued the shoot despite the pain.

Chilam admitted that if the spark went off a little he might have been blinded. Was the shoot very tough? He said, "The second film THE S STORM (S FUNG BO) was tougher because it had more action scenes. This time mainly has been gun fights." Ah tam said that he was fine during the shoot. After he got home to rest he discovered the ..... (article cut to save bandwidth)
