The Wong Kar Wai directed film THE GRANDMASTER 3D (YUT DOI JUNG SI 3D) after its Shenzhen premiere yesterday held a press conference in his birthplace with actor Chang Chen. Wong Kar Wai introduced the film's 3D production as extremely precise and with Chang Chen from a different angle defined the film's newly added scene "a shot that is worth more than gold". Chang Chen revealed that this scene was the final scene was the shot. The entire process took 90 hours and displayed the new frontier of film.

In THE GRANDMASTER 3D, Wong Kar Wai added "a shot that is worth more than gold" "blade listening duel" between the Chang Chen played Tai Chi Fist master Yi Xiantian and the Tony Leung Chiu Wai played Ip Man on the Ten Le Long Street. He felt that "a shot that is worth more than gold" also expressed his attitude toward film. Chang Chen said that this scene was the final scene that was shot for the entire film. In order to put the duel between two masters Ip Man and Yi Xiantian in its best condition, Chang Chen and Leung Chiu Wai did a lot of preparation. The entire scene's production in the end took 90 hours, finally the mutual admiration from the masters' exchange was performed to its most thorough.

In "a shot that is worth than more than gold", Chang Chen's Yi Xiantian first whipped out his weapon razor. Because the blade never appeared in THE GRANDMASTER, this Chang Chen scene from the production wrap to now has already been frozen for five years. At the same time under Wong Kar Wai's order, the crew spent two months to take inventory of THE GRANDMASTER 3D's hundreds of thousands of props anew. Finally they were able to find this blade again. At the event Wong Kar Wai personally presented it to Chang Chen as a gift. Chang Chen even brought back Yi Xiantian's blade yielding and brought the press conference to its peak.
