Stephen Chow Sing Chi earlier was rumored to be "dead", which made him immediately issue legal letters to stop the rumor from spreading. Yesterday Sing Yeh led Deng Chao and "Sing Girl" Jelly Lin Yun to the New Zealand National Museum to attend the 2016 New Zealand Chinese Film Week press conference, because the box office king MERMAID (MEI YUN YU) would be this film week's opening film. Sing Yeh dispelled the rumor with action and even joked that when he went out he saw a place called MERMAID and felt very familiar.

Gloria Wong Yung earlier attended the film GLORIOUS DAYS (GUONG FAI SHUI YUET ji SO DUK) press conference. Wong Yung this time headed north to be the film's lead actress and played a cold but sexy female bodyguard. Working with many elders in this film she felt a lot of pressure. Thus before the shot she locked herself at home for a week to study the thick script. She even often asked her father to be the male lead and run the lines with her. Gloria thanked veteran actors Lee Kwok Lun, Mary Han Ma Lei, Lok Ying Kwan, Auyeung Tak Ching and others for being very willing to teach her how to act from table read on. They got along very harmoniously.

Aside from doing her homework with the script, she even went to get in shape and train for this film. She has been at the gyum four to five days a week. She even said that after the shoot she would still continue to study martial arts. In real life she would like to be able to fight for real and become an action actress. She even joked that she would learn something to knock out bad men with.

The Benny Chan Muk Sing directed, Sammo Hung Kam Bo action directed action epic CALL OF HEROES (NGAI SING) yesterday held a Beijing press conference. Star Eddie Peng Yu-Yan and guest star Wu Jing appeared.

Peng Yu-Yan and Wu Jing turned into tough guys, with a blade and a spear in hand they looked rather cool. They also had an emoji battle as they raised signs with their different expressions and adjectives to trade blows. Peng Yu-Yan raised "I am very handsome", Wu Jing responded with "gentle". In addition, cute children made surprise appearance as two child actors played "Little Wu Jing" and "Little Peng Yu-Yan". However "Little Peng Yu-Yan" had a fake beard just like the film costume. Peng Yu-Yan joked, "You developed so early."

The event also provided a selfie stick to each of them for them to take a selfie with the entire venue. Wu Jing also joked around with the selfie stick as he asked Peng Yu-Yan to hold it for him. Peng added, "It can be longer".

The film HUSBAND KILLERS (NUI SI FOOK SAU) yesterday held a production start ceremony. Boss Lam Kin Ming led actors Stephy Tang Lai Yun, Gaile Lok, Chrissie Chau Sau Na, Paulyn Sun Kai Kwan, Lily Ho Ngo Yee and director Fire Lee (For For) in attendance. The team also presented a birthday bun to Chau Sau Na, who turned 31 two days ago. Tang Lai Yun got choked up when she spoke of Alex Fong Lik Sun, saying that she still dreamed about their relationship everyday as she succumbed to tears.

Tang Lai Yun and Siu Fong's ten year relationship ended, but Siu Fong on a radio program got choked up and said that he dreamed of Stephy many times. Stephy said that she just got back from Bali and heard the news from friends, but actually she did not want to say too much about their relationship. She hoped to focus on work again as it faded away. Yet Siu Fong after the break up said that he was reluctant to part. Stephy paused and started to get teary eyed. "Each time I see it my heart would ache a little. However lately I don't want to get in contact, because I feel at this time I don't know how to express myself and say anything." After that Stephy already succumbed to tears. She dried her tears and reporters asked if she has soften and wanted to get back with Siu Fong? She thought for a little while and said that she did not.

Speaking of Siu Fong revealing that during this cooling period he thought about getting married and saying that she would make a good wife, Stephy answered, "Siu Fong said that whether we shoudl get married or not to resolve problems, but I felt that we had both timing and communication problems. Yet after the break up, he talked to the media and in public and rarely in private. I thought it was very strange so I didn't want to talk too much about why we broke up. Just leave it for the two of us to handle in the futre!" Siu Fong revealed that they did not have love between them anymore and a reunion would be hard. Stephy said, "Actually both timing and communication are problems. Love has many layers, like family, friends, I can't say we have no love between us."

Stephy in HUSBAND played a killer who accidentally discovered that her husband had a "third" and even a "four" party. In the film the ladies will fight with a little dark humor. She said that in the past she mostly made romantic films. Was she worried about all the gossips with a group of girls? She said that she was already used to that since her Cookies days. She instead looked forward to this time very much. She knew that Chau Sau Na was a Gemini, which would pair well with her Libra.

Chau Sau Na just turned 31. She said that on her birth week she kept celebrating with dinners and received a lot of birthday presents. Some came from suitors, but she declined to reveal what the gifts were or how many suitors she had. For now she still has not found a suitable one.

Chrissie said that this time she played a burglar, so she wanted to get into shape. In the film she had no idea that she became a "third party". She stated that she did not want to be such a dumb woman, but the source of the problem was the cheating man. Would the multiple side relationship bring back bad memories? She said, "They are in the past, so they can't be brought back. They are already buried in the dirt, waiting for new sprout to spring up." Did she have suitors? She said, "I have to give it a try first, it's not like we met once for my birthday and it's done. I need time to get to know him and see if I have any interest to keep it going."

The last time Gaile Lok made a movie was already MY SWEETIE (TIM SI SI) 12 years ago. Since she knew the director For For, when he asked she gave it a try. Ultimately she did not have too much experience. Speaking of her salary, she said, "It didn't go up too much, I am just starting in film. It's a new attempt for me!" Gaile in the film played a Special Duties Unit member, she would not be able to dress up and play pretty. Instead she looked forward to fight scenes with Chrissie and Stephy. She was also concerned that she would get hurt so she would train first. As for playing a "fourth party" in the film, she said that she has never fallen so low. It would be very hard for her. The character would be very different from her own personality so this time would be very challenging!

Recently dating Mat Yeung Ming, Lisa Ch'ng Sze Ming attended the production wrap of the film GWING DOH LOK CHAM GEI (EPIC FAIL TO LOS ANGELEGS) with Ai Wai, Rachel Lam Hei Tung, Deon Cheung Chung Chi and Mannyan Lam Man. Her Kuala Lumpur trip was not only to visit boyfriend Yeung Ming but also her parents. Sze Ming did not directly respond to what her parents' impression of her new boyfriend was, only that every time she went home her parents would be very happy. What was her Mommy's impression of her boyfriend? She said, "I don't know, pretty good. (How did she grade your boyfriend?) Very high score, she appreciates how he treats me the most."

Falling in love again, Lisa said that she and her boyfriend were seriously in a relationship and their company did not interfere. As for when they would wed she left it to her boyfriend to answer. Lisa revealed that she would save up for the wedding. As for her kiss with her boyfriend becoming magazine covers, Lisa said that her parents did not know about that yet. From now on she would watch how she behaved more. She said, "Maybe later I will keep posting so no one would be surprised."

After years in the business Ai Wai played the lead for the first time. He said that he had no pressure. Instead the producer, writer and actor Lam Hei Tung felt the pressure. Because she was not pretty enough, Lam Hei Tung revealed that they fought a lot when they went over the script. Luckily after they took their places they were fine. This time in the film Pinky Cheung Man Chi played his wife, Ai Wai said that he was disappointed that Lam Hei Tung did not add intimate scenes for them. Earlier they went to work in the U.S. for almost a month. Ai Wai joked that he felt like he broke into the Hollywood market. Lam Hei Tung admitted that she learned a lot from the U.S. production and saw a lot of film technique there.
