The Hong Kong film THE SINKING CITY: CAPSULE ODYSSEY (SAI FONG GIK LOK ji TAI BAU TAI JI TAI HUNG CHONG)'s actors Andrew Lam Man Chung, Ava Liu (Yu Kiu) and Eva Chan Sze Wai yesterday appeared on the TVB program BIG BOYS CLUB. Ah Chung after getting into trouble with host Bob Lam Sing Bun last time yesterday continued to "get handsy" with him yesterday. Ah Chung often smacked Bob's head, making Bob often had to hold his hands to pretend further attacks.

Last time the program received a tremendous response. Ah Chung said that this time Bob was not late. Instead the other hose Ricky Fan Chun Fung was a hour late. As for the host Penny Chan Kwok Fung last time, Ah Chung said, "I don't know who he is, I don't even remember what he looks like." He admitted that he never thought the last program would have such a great response. The comments online yelled at him even more than Johnson Lee. Ah Chung said that this time Bob was already much smarter, he would often dodge away. However he still "nailed" him three times.

When someone suggested for them to host a program together, Ah Chung said, "I am no interesting in being a host, I don't have the time. Actually Bob was pretty good. In the past (Eric Tsang) Chi Wai always hit me, now I get to hit Bob and rather enjoy it. The last time I hit someone with Chi Wa was already Anderson Junior." Was he afraid that Bob would really get mad at him? "He is the most afraid that people say he is late and unprofessional. He has no basis to get mad with. You have to be able to play to be in this business. In addition we are very familiar, if not we wouldn't mess around. Only results that no one would expect would be strong."

Bob said that he already worked hard at dodging Ah Chung's attacks. He said that the last program had good response. Later he called Ah Chung and they thought it was very funny. Did he mind people saying that he was late? He said, "Last time even my wife thought that I was late. I respect my job very much. Actually we are just joking around. I sad that I wanted to be the host of his funeral." When suggested that they could perform a stand up comedy show together, Bob said that "Ah Chung already formed 'Lam Cheng' with (Ronald) Cheng Chung Kei. Although my last name is Lam too, I am not there yet. I definitely would support their show."

The Jackie Chan produced new film RESET held a Beijing press conference. Leads Wallace Huo and Mini Yang Mi attended. The duo reunited after CHINESE PALADIN 3. Yang Mi praised Wallace Huo for being more mature. She also received praise for being even more serious at work. Jackie Chan mentioned that Wallace Huo in the film played the villain. In general handsome guys disliked playing the villain, but handsome guys could play villains for 70 or 80 years. "Little Fresh Meat" could easily be a flash in the pan. Wallace Huo thanked Jackie Chan for giving him the opportunity to play the villain and he would continue to develop in that direction. Earlier Yang Mi won the Best Action Actress award at the Shanghai Film Festival's Jackie Chan Action Movie Week. Jackie Chan was not on the jury. When Yang M won he was worried about accusation of unfairness. He asked the jury why Yang Mi would win and not Kara Wai Ying Hung? The jury's response was that Wai Ying Hung had less action scenes in the film, most of them were just of her running. Yang Mi was not an action actress but she personally performed a lot of the stunts. He reminded Yang Mi that being an action actress was very difficult, she should be an actress who could fight and not be an actress who would only fight.

Angela Yuen Lai Lam, King@C AllStar, Kylie Li (Lee Yam Sun), Sean Pang Wing Sum and director Emily Chan Nga Lei two nights ago attended their film OUR SEVENTEEN (NA YUT NIN, NGOR 17)'s audience appreciation event in school uniforms in Diamond Hill.

Yuen Lai Lam sad that King looked very funny in a school uniform. King said that Johnny Depp has always been his idol. For his first movie he realized that he liked to make comedy even more. Yuen Lai Lam also revealed that when he was not in a scene he would watch Stephen Chow Sing Chi's funny film videos. King said, "After this time, next time maybe no one would ask me to make another movie. I am a music so music comes first. The first time I saw my head up there I really wasn't used to it, the had really was very big!" He also said that he experienced Yuen Lai Lam's goddess halo, as everyone had a lot of fun from working together.

Yuen Lai Lam said that she after chatting with King learned that they both were very stubborn and persistent people. Would they have any chance to develop? King said, "Next movie? Or perhaps musically we would. Her voice is very sweet. I hope in music we would have a chance to work together." The other three members of C AllStar earlier said that King could be Ronald Cheng Chung Kei's successor. He said that Ronald has a lot of experience while he just started. He would have to spend several more decades before we would be able to.

Michael Ning (Bak Ji) and Cherry Ngan Cheuk Ling last night promoted their new film ZOMBIOLOGY: ENJOY YOURSELF TONIGHT (GUM MAN DA SONG SI) as a couple with Carrie Ng Ka Lai, Venus Wong Man Yik and others. Bak Ji said that work was work and they were not on a date. Did their relationship change? Bak Ji clarified that it did not, as he stressed that work and relationship were separate. Would they work on another film as a couple? Bak Ji said, "This time at work we were very happy, but she and I had very few scenes together. If we acted together I would be afraid that I would be distracted." Ngan Cheuk Ling said that after their relationship went public their workload did not increase. She even suggested for everyone to help them with creating more opportunities.

Rarely used zombies as a subject, this Hong Kong film inevitably would be compared to the earlier Korean hit TRAIN TO BUSAN. Bak Ji admitted that he was confident about the box office because Hong Kong people liked domestic production and loved zombie films. One of the leads Louis Cheung Kai Chung joked that the box office duty was left to Bak Ji. He said, "I have no comment. I don't believe anything that I don't hear it with my own ears. Actually actors don't think much about the box office during the shoot, as long as the audience likes it then it's fine."

Ng Ka Lai hoped that the film would be able to continue the success of previous commercial and critical Hong Kong film hits. She believed that the audience also liked to hear Cantonese as it would not have a hard time from following the subtitles.
