After the film LAZY HAZY CRAZY (TUNG BAN TUNG HOK)'s advanced screenings, Ashina Kwok Yik Sum's topless punishment scene left a deep impression with the audience as she received good reviews. Yet behind this scene, Ashina once broke down from the pressure and cried for 10 minutes. "This scene is very important. Before the shoot I was super nervous, after completing this scene I felt like I am very capable!"

Susan Shaw Yam Yam who was in the scene with her praised her for her potential. "I really hit her! That way we could give the audience the most realistic feeling. She is has a lot of potential."

Best Actor Simon Yam Tat Wa has made countless films and won many awards in recent years. Earlier he received the Sitges Film Festival 2015 Honorary Maria Award for his achievements. "I am very happy and very honored. Every year many of my films would be shown there, this time two of my films were shown in a cinema with an 100 year old history. I watched movies with a group of viewers there."

Simon stayed for four days and had a tight schedule. "The people are very enthusiastic, I can also take the chance to promote the Hong Kong film industry and introduce Hong Kong cuisine to them." Simon also said that as soon as he won he immediately informed his daughter to give her encouragement and positive energy.

His wife Qi Qi was by his side the whole time. Did she give him any gift? She said, "Keeping him company is already the best support. When he gave his thank you speech he thanked a lot of people, but he actually forgot to thank me. Later after accepting the award he thanked me and our daughter, which cracked up the entire crowd." Despite being overseas, Simon still had just as many fans. Wherever he went he was surrounded.

After three years of planning, the film COLD WAR 2 (HONG JIN 2) finally started production. Three actors Aaron Kwok Fu Sing, Tony Leung Ka Fai and Eddie Peng Yu-Yan were even more anxious than the audience. Lately they have already launched a war online. Earlier Eddie posted a photo of him pointing a gun at Sing Sing, who lived up to this title of new police chief. Not only did he not panic but also successfully "struck back", as he pointed a gun at criminal Eddie. Finally they even posed for a photo together! The film COLD WAR was a commercial and critical hit in 2012 during its Hong Kong release. Its Hong Kong box office made over HK$44 million to become the year's Chinese film box office champion. This time COLD WAR 2's team was even stronger than the first film, including Hong Kong Best Actor team and Taiwan hunk team. The Best Actor team not only had Sing Sing and Ka Fai but also the mighty Chow Yun Fat for a Best Actor trio! As for hunks, aside from Eddie and Aarif Rahman (Lee Chi Ting) from the first film, Tony Yang and Chang Kuo-Chu also joined the ranks. The over half a century old Chang Kuo-Chu's dominance in the film made even Ka Fai praise that he was cooler than his son Chang Chen!

Earlier the directors Sunny Luk Kim Ching and Longman Leung Lok Man led the actors and action director Chin Kar Lok to the production start worship ceremony then proceeded to start the production. Earlier Charlie Yeung Choi Nei, Lee Chi Ting, Chow Yun Fat and others will join the fray. Ka Fai and Eddie reunited that day as on screen father and son and gave each other a loving embrace. They even made faces for photos. Eddie was also excited to see his idol Sing Sing, then he posed for photos with his first time in a Hong Kong film friend Tony Yang. Eddie even joked, "We are the most handsome killers from Taiwan!"

The film GET OUTTA HERE (SEI HOI DI LA)'s producer Gordon Lam Ka Tung yesterday led actors Alex Lam Tak Shun, J.Arie (Lui Sum Yu) and Gregory Rivers (Hor Kwok Wing) for a cinema event. Ka Tung admitted that the new film received good reviews, but the box office performance was only average. Now he was negotiating with cinemas to fight for better show times and numbers. Will he "skinny dip" to pump up the box office? Ka Tung joked, "No, GET OUTTA HERE doesn't need skinny dipping. (Any gimmick for Halloween?) Demolition, demolishing my own home."

Alex and J.Arie both said that they could book shows to watch the film. J. Arie said that recently she received the good news from several cinemas that they were sold out. "The director even said that it was a 'big miracle day'!" Alex was very happy to receive praises from film critics about his acting. Two nights ago he revealed that the cinematographer of the film was the same one from his father George Lam Chi Cheung's film (A BITE OF LOVE). "Daddy after watching the film gave me three words, 'You did well'."

He said, "Such a great character only happens once, thank you producer (Gordon) Lam Ka Tung and director Leung Kwok Bun for giving me a chance. Without them, everyone would only know Hor Kwok Wing plays police officers. How would they guess that he could run around in his underwear?"
