The Shaw, TVB, Sil-Metropole, and Mei Ah joint Lunar New Year film I LOVE HONG KONG (NGOR OI HK HOI SUM MAN SHUI) yesterday and today held the first in flight premiere and Singapore star class first flight promotion. Attendees included Eric Tsang Chi Wai, Sandra Ng Kwan Yu, Fala Chen, Maggie Cheung Ho Yi, Samantha Ko Hoi Ning, Vivien Yeo (Yeung Sau Wai), Angela Tong Ying Ying, Sheung Tin Ngor, Yuen Siu Cheung and others.
The team yesterday took the noon flight to Singapore. When the flight reached 36,000 feet, Chi Wai, Kwan Yu, Fala, Ho Yi, Sister Ngor and Cheung Jai suddenly went to the economy class and forced their way into the passenger's original entertainment programs with their film's trailer and production highlight. Passengers did not mind much, some even rushed up for photos. Some children even climbed on seats and flight attendants had to urge them to stop. Before the flight landed, Kwan Yu's voice suddenly roared as she imitated the pilot and gave a local weather
report in English, Cantonese and Mandarin. She said that the local temperature was 100 degrees, "so hot that you would be crawling on the streets". Then Fala imitated the flight attendant. Due to her fluent and serious English, people thought she was the real flight attendant. After the team arrived, they immediately held the star class first flight ceremony. Chi Wai even became the event background as guests asked him for pictures.
This in flight premiere was Chi Wai's idea. Originally he wanted a land air and sea premiere that flew from Hong Kong to Beijing, then to Shanghai at sea and by train to Guangzhou. Although now the event only held in the air, but he felt like a dream came true. The in flight premiere was successful due to the film title and the sponsor coordination, yesterday was the sponsor's first flight. Kwan Yu hoped that her MR. AND MRS. INCREDIBLES would beat I, the exception fast
responding Chi Wai said, "Right! That's why she hopes! Because we would definitely win." Chi Wai said that this film was made to encourage Hong Kong and tailored for Hong Kong, so it will definitely win at the Hong Kong box office. However he did not dare to talk about the Mainland.
Will Kwan Yu continue to promote this film? Chi Wai said, "She will. At first she was worried that she would cause confusion, but this film has an all star cast in support of Ng Kwan Yu, the other one only had her and (Louis) Koo Tin Lok. This film truly is very cheerful. (Kwan Yu in the film took quite a beating, did you deliberately arrange for that?) (Peter) Chan Ho Sun asked."
Kwan Yu and Fala visited the cockpit for the first time and also participated in their first in flight premiere. Kwan Yu thought it was rather cheerful and joyous. She even said that if she knew she would have brought her daughter. As for the special visit to the cockpit, she said, "The pilot asked if anyone wanted to watch the landing. I raised my hand fast. For the sake of the entire flight I didn't permit Ko Hoi Ning to go, so I dragged Fala along." When she saw the pilot still has not given a local update to passengers, she made the introduction through the pilot's communication system. At first she thought the entire flight was their own people so she said "crawling on the streets". Later she realized that the other half was other passengers. She also said that the pilot kept introducing the escape routes to them, which made her very nervous. She even asked the pilot not to continue with the introductions. In yesterday's premiere footage, Wayne Lai Yiu Cheung beat Kwan Yu until she was crawling on the ground. Did she use a double? She joked, "Only the crawling on the ground part because they were afraid that I would get hurt."
Fala was very excited to visit the cockpit and said that the pilot was very cool. However maybe she and Kwan Yu talked too much, he was somewhat annoyed and grabbed the communication system back. She also said that she wanted to be a fighter pilot once because she thought it
would be very cool. Would she like to meet a pilot boyfriend? She said, "It's cooler to be one." As for her convincing flight attendance, she in the film played a flight attendant at first before switching to become a tutor. She even said that she got along well with her on screen boyfriend Aarif Rahman (Lee Chi Ting). They even had music exchange. Would she ask him to write a song for her? She said, "I am waiting for him! Although we belong to different companies, we can still work together."
