The Alex Fong Lik Sun and Samantha Ko Hoi Ning starred new film yesterday released its trailer. In it Ko Ling on the streets of Causeway Bay slapped boyfriend Siu Fong 19 times while he was pleading on his knees. Referred to as "slave beast" Siu Fong said that everyone only saw the the surface, not when he whipped Ko Ling and when she beg on her knees on glass. As he continued to talk about his "glorious history", Ko Ling called and all the arrogance disappeared. "Concert tickets? I am going to get them now!" The audience learned that he actually was "comforting himself".

Ko Ling said that the "beast taming" scene was very stressful. "The director asked for it to be realistic, I had to look like I was hitting Siu Fong very hard. However having to slap him so many times, I really was afraid that I would hurt him. So I was more nervous than enjoying it! Finally one time my finger nail scratched his noses! I really was super sorry!" While in the film she was an expert of slapping people, in real life she should be an expert among experts? She said that she has never slapped anyone in real life. "So during rehearsal I would crack up, but I know I would have no chance for a bad take . During the shoot I had to hypnotize myself to be in character, as I kept telling myself, 'I am a Sassy Girl' to be able to successfully finish this scene!"

Siu Fong said that the director's "slave beast" shoot was a "set up" and "excessive". He not only had to kneel on the streets of Causeway Bay but also being slapped in front of everyone. Speaking of being slapped, he said that he only felt "super awkward". Only after the shoot did he discover the scratches on his face.

Grace Lam Nga Sze, Yu Chiu Chung Yu and Derek Wong Kin Tung yesterday attended a costume fitting for their new film (BAK BIN SUN TAM). Grace played a foolish cop who went undercover in an arms smuggling group. Her character had over 30 costumes, including cosplay and sexy ones. In addition she also had to perform a drifting stunt. Grace worried about injuries from the dangerous scene. As for the earlier "robbery" incident in Malaysia, she said that it has come to an end. In the future she will also go there again for work.

Yu in the film played Grace's sister, who also investigated the case. THe former said that she has played an uniformed officer before. This time she even had to sit next to Grace during the drifting. Yu said that she did not have a license and felt that her fate was in her co-star's hand, thus she wanted the film company to increase her insurance policy. In addition, Yu also had to investigate the case in cosplay. "I leave the sexy ones to Grace. She is a goddess, I can play Gundam or a man." Yu in the film also had to silly. She said that in reality she looked smart but actually was very dumb. She often put the wrong school uniform on her child and has left the country with expired documents. Reporters joked that she did not look smart either. Yu helplessly laughed and said, "You see how smart I was in the first half of my life? I hope I can be in the second half of my life!"

Chin Siu Ho and his son Andrew Pong Kingfung two nights ago attended the charity premiere of BIO RAIDERS (SUN FA YEUK SI). Speaking of the father and son pair's first film, Siu Ho said that it had two firsts, he was the executive producer for the first time and it was his first film with Kingfung.

Siu Ho admitted that when Kingfung was little they did not have much contact and were a little estranged, but after making this film they became much closer. Recently he heard his son called him Daddy, he was so happy that he was shaking. He said that he has never gone on vacation with Kingfung. Earlier when they promoted in Beijing, they had the rare occasion to turn work into play. He said, "In my mind he still is a kid, in the brink of an eye he is already 27. He is much more mature. Later we will promote in Singapore and Malaysia, then we can go on vacation together again."

When Kingfung learned that Siu Ho was shaking when he was called Daddy, Kingfung joked, "Really? I am very happy to work with Daddy too. When I was little I thought about whether I would have a chance to work together as father and son, but I thought I would work with Uncle Chin Kar Lok. I would never imagine that I would be able to act with Daddy in my third film." Siu Ho looked forward to promote overseas with him. Kingfung said, "I value family as well, I have never lacked fatherly love. Although Daddy didn't teach me kung fu, but when I was little Uncle taught me to the hand stand. He even stole Daddy's favorite Ultraman toy for me to play with."

The film YUP TIN LUNG (ENTER THE METAL CAGE) yesterday held its production start ceremony in Tuen Mun. Actors Yuen Qiu, Eric Kot Man Fai, Edward Ma Chi Wai, Lam Yiu Sing and Wiyona Yeung Lau Ching participated. Seeing Ah Kot and Sister Qiu in matching clothing, Ah Kot said that in the film Sister Qiu played his sister in law. She took over her late husband's martial art school, took in a group of juvenile delinquents and taught them kung fu to find life directions.

Sister Qiu said that in the film this time she only demonstrated kung fu moves to young people and did not need to use real kung fu. Instead the young people were well trained. Yeung Lau Ching's Brazilian Jiujutsu match with a Hong Kong champion was her first; Ah Kot said that he only had peanuts on the sideline and watched the show. This time was their first collaboration. Sister Qiu said that earlier she and Ah Kot both provided voices to the Korean film MAPADO. At the time Ah Kot taught her a lot of voice work technique. Ah Kot praised Sister Qiu for her rich filmmaking experience but she still was worried about her lines. Sister Qiu said that she was afraid her Cantonese would not be fluent enough, so she asked the director to give all the lines to Ah Kot.

Cine Fan Summer International Film Festival 2017 two nights ago opened. PARADOX (SAT POR LONG TAM LONG) was selected to be the opening film. Director Wilson Yip Wai Shun, action director Sammo Hung Kam Bo, actors Louis Koo Tin Lok, Gordon Lam Ka Tung, Jacky Cai Jie and Hanna Chan attended. Guests included Johnnie To Kei Fung and Kara Wai Ying Hung. "Big Brother Sammo" Hung Kam Bo said that his second son Jimmy Hung Tin Cheung brought his girlfriend Eugenie Liu to see him. He thought that she was nice and polite. He admitted that he was old fashioned. He hoped that his children would all hurry up, get married and have children.

Hung Kam Bo two nights ago looked tired. He just returned to Hong Kong from promoting the film in Beijing. Due to his leg injury, today he would have to be hospitalized to have kneecap surgery. The doctor asked him to rest for 4 to 6 months. Big Brother Sammo said that after the surgery moving around would be inappropriate, but he liked to go out. In a wheel chair he still would return to the company for a meeting. He said, "After the surgery I can walk, I just can't run. The doctor suggested for me to ride bicycles and swim for therapy." Would he set aside on screen work for now? Big Brother revealed that currently he only had his own movie to make and that would be in November. For stunts he would be able to accommodate.

Recently his second son Hung Tin Cheung and Taiwan star Eugenie Liu have been dating. Big Brother said that his son has brought his girlfriend to dinner. He thought that he wsa nice and polite. Big Brother said, "However you can see they haven't known each other too long, they aren't for me to worry about anyway. I just hope that all the children will get married and have children soon, 15 or 16 children per family would be the best. I am old fashioned, more people at home would be more cheerful and more stable!"

Lam Ka Tung introduced himself in Thai. Because in the film most of his lines were in Thai, only 4 lines were in Cantonese. He said that originally the team arranged for an instructor for him. Everyday he would familiarize himself with the Thai lines the next day, but the director would change lines on the spot. He was forced to think all over.

Koo Tin Lok said that many of his Cantonese lines were cut as well. Mainly the director wanted him to express himself with his acting. Goo Jai remade THE MOON REPRESENTS MY HEART for the film. The promotional focus was on his return to music. Goo Jai said, "You said it! It's just a joke!" Goo Jai just finished a new film and at the same time he had to work on two new films with directors Juno Mak Chun Lung and Roy Chow Hin Yeung.

The film aside from confirming the global premiere at the 74th Venice International Film Festival, Toronto International Film Festival also announced that MANHUNT will be screened there.

After receiving the good news, Director Woo thanked everyone for their support with a video. He humbly said that he was very honored to have the film at two great film festivals Venice and Toronto, the film would interpret this story from an all new angle and he hoped the audience would like it. He also thanked the Japanese professional team for enabling him to complete this difficult production schedule, during which they were able to professionally face and resolve difficulties that they ran into.

One of the classic trait of Ng Yu Sum's films was the mutual admiration and bond of two heroes. This time Zhang Hanyu and Masaharu Fukuyama's spark in the film would pleasantly surprise the audience. They both were excited about the film being a part of two international film festivals. Zhang Hanyu said, "I am very happy that the film will be able to participate in two world film festivals in Toronto and Venice. The Venice Film Festival is an event that honors filmmakers around the world, I am very happy this time I am able to bring an excellent film to Venice, to attend the event with all of the world's filmmakers." Masaharu Fukuyama said, "I have looked forward to working on a John Woo directed film for a long time, when I learn that the film will be screened at two great international film festivals, I feel happy and honored. I would be just like John Woo fans around the world as I properly appreciate the fun of watching MANHUNT."

Korean film star Ha Ji-Won said, "I am very honored to be a part of Director Woo's film, it's really like a dream come true! I am even more honored to learn that MANHUNT will be at two world renowned film festivals. After hearing this news I am very happy, I really am excited and looking forward to be able to attend the Venice Film Festival and reunite with the good team I worked with." Mainland star Stephy Qi Wei said, "I am very honored to work with Director Woo for the first time and have such a good performance as we head toward the international stages.

Pakho Chau in the new film THE SINKING CITY: CAPSULE ODYSSEY (SAI FONG GIK LOK: TAI BAU TAI JI TAI HUNG CHONG) had kiss scenes with both Shiga Lin and Ava Liu (Yu Kiu). He might seem to be lucky but he said that the kisses were very different. His kiss with Yu Kiu in a phone booth during the rain was a salute to a certain classic film, but his passionate kiss with Shiga was salty. He said, "In the scene I was having rice noodle, she came back and cried. At the time I had a spring roll in my mouth, her tears were salty too. So the entire scene was very salty!"

In the film he could only afford to live in a spot as big as a space capsule. Pakho said that he would not be able to accept that in real life. "In the scene the space capsule was enlarged, the real one would be even smaller! If I have to live there I would be very uncomfortable because I am claustrophobic. I can't even be in an elevator for too long."

During the shoot Darren Wang had to act with the air. No wonder he said, "Movement, looks, expressions and dialogue coordination has to be perfect. It is as difficult as wire work and action scenes."

The costume is also very heavy and gives me neck and shoulder pain. However I really like this type of fantasy costumes." Liu Tao played an emissary of the Goddess of Mercy and showed off her unconventional and tender side.

The film YUT YUET SING (SUN MOON STAR) yesterday shot on location at a secondary school. Actors included Aimee Chan Yan Mei, Daichi Harashima and Kathy Yuen (Tong Yi). Aimee after three children officially returned to film. She admitted that she was very happy about returning to work but took some getting used to. However she got used to it very quickly. Now her husband Moses Chan Ho plays babysitter. She said that the couple wanted to try to accommodate their schedules as they hoped one of the parents would stay home to take care of the children.

Chan Yan Mei missed her children while at work. Did the children want to go to work with her? Aimee said, "They would keep asking, Mommy what kind of job are you doing? I would explain in English that I am an actress!" They also said that all three children were stuck to her, especially the oldest son and the younger daughter. Thus she would miss them at work.

Aimee said that the last time she made a movie was already two years ago, so she was particularly excited about this return to work. The first shoot took a little getting used to, but she very quickly adjusted to it since she had some past performance experience. This time in the film she played a serious English teacher. Because the background was the 90s, she had to wear a pair of glasses to look more mild mannered. In the film she kept waiting for a boyfriend who left but might not appear again, she still kept writing letters to maintain this long distance relationships. Thus she also taught her student Daichi Harashima to write to the girl he liked. Her husband Chan Ho just finished a series, now it is her turn to work. Aimee said, "We are very lucky, we would try to accommodate each other's schedule. We hope that one of us would be able to stay at home with the kids!" Did her husband enjoy being a house husband? Aimee said, "He enjoys it, he has been working all year. So he would want to raise the children, which is more tiring than working. He has said that it was time for his wife to work, and I really like acting!" She revealed that now she has different offers. Although she had no TVB contract she has series offers. Would she not be in the same series with her husband because of the children? Aimee said, "I don't dare to say I would or not, but it would depend on the opportunity and the script. I like the job of acting!" Has she already completed slimming down? She said that earlier she kept working out for half a month in Canada and she had results. She no longer needed to wear the large sized clothing from before.

Daichi Harashima and Tong Yi played students. Tong Yi said that she never thought she still would be able to play a student, but she felt that in a school uniform she would be able to fool people. Daichi Harashima has already graduated from high school and is attending the university, he returned to Hong Kong to act during his summer vacation and has already stayed for two weeks. In early September he will return to school in Japan. He admitted that he liked making movies but he did not dare to say whether he would continue to act in the future, but if the opportunity arises he would like to make movies. For the past several years he made movies in the Mainland, instead he left a blank in Hong Kong for awhile. At age 5 or 6 he played Cecilia Cheung Pak Chi's son in LOST IN TIME (MONG BUT LIU). After over a decade he finally has a chance to return to Hong Kong film.

Would they have any intimate scene? Tong Yi said that in comparison to her past performance, this time would be ordinary. At most she would have a kiss scene. She immediately asked Daichi Harashima whether it would be his first on screen kiss? Daichi Harashima hinted that this was his "first kiss". Reporters joked that he was young fresh meat. Tong Yi answered, "Very fresh, I have to give you lai see. You have to take me to dinner!" Daichi Harashima immediately agreed, "Great!" They said that the kiss scene probably would not be awkward.
