Best Actor Chow Yun Fat and Best Actress Carina Lau Ka Ling yesterday promoted their Lunar New Year film FROM VEGAS TO MACAU 2 (DOH SING FUNG WON II) in Beijing yesterday with Nick Cheung Ka Fai, Thai transsexual Poyd, "Jing Girls" Natalie Meng Yao, Kimmy Tong Fei and child star Angela Wang Shiling. The Beijing premiere press conference prepared gifts for the media, including a wallet with Fat Gor and a piggy bank with the word "fat".
Fat Gor and Ka Ling exchanged pleasantries on the stage. Ka Ling praised, "You get younger and younger and cooler and cooler." She even revealed that she often dreamed about Fat Gor, even her husband Tony Leung Chiu Wai knew about that. She said, "He knows that I like Fat Gor much more than him. (Between Wai Jai and Fat Gor who is in better shape?) No comparison, they are both good. Each with his own beauty and sexiness. Their sexiness comes from their acting, professionalism, and thinking." Later Ka Ling also called Fat Gor "selfie god". Fat Gor immediately grabbed her for a selfie, which made Ka Ling screamed, "You got me!" Fat Gor who claimed to have taken selfies with 1,000 people even used his phone and took a photo with the crowd of 200.
Speaking of Fat Gor's upcoming "6 landing" (turning 60), Ka Ling said that she too will soon have a "5 landing" (turning 50). Yet they seemed to have found the fountain of youth. She said, "Many of the same period either died or left, but we are still around. I am very grateful." They worked together many times at TVB early on. Fat Gor even revealed that he single handedly brought together Wai Jai and Ka Ling, back then they clicked because of a play. He also predicted that he and Ka Ling will work together again in 60 years. If she was still able to act at age 80 he would be willing to tag along. He felt that he was even younger than before. "The last time I had a lot of pressure from working with (Nicholas) Tse Ting Fung). I dropped from 180 some pounds to 150 some pounds, which turned me into another Chow Yun Fat."
The host asked Fat Gor what he was like when he wa upset. He joked, "I would beat my wife, I have already bought an insurance policy!" Fat Soh cracked up in the audience. Ka Ling joked, "What happened to you today, normally you don't dare to say that?" Later she revealed that her salary from 100 films equals to one film for Fat Gor. In addition, Bona film group boss Yu Dong said that he was confident about FROM 2 reaching 800 million RMB at the box office nationally. He stressed that if the box office will reach 800 million RMB he will give a third film the green light. He believed deeply that all three films will be able to break 2 billion RMB at the box office.
In addition, Fat Gor, Fat Soh, Ka Fai and others at night attended the FROM 2 premiere and attracted over 100 fans. Dressed like the God of Gamblers, Fat Gor continued to be friendly as he appeared with Fat Soh. They kept waving to fans. When Mainland star Wang Zizi posed for photos, she bent her arm and took up half of Tong Fei's spot.
Cheung Ka Fai yesterday attended with his THE WHITE STORM (SO DUK) co-star, the Thai transsexual Poyd. Although Ka Fai praised her for being prettier than before, she returned the favor. "Today he is a little taller, is it because he is wearing heels?" Ka Fai said, "I don't sell my appearance, I sell my talent." Playing Ka Fai's daughter in the film, Angela Wang Shiling attended as well. Ka Fai said that he wanted to take a bite out of her hand. Finally the "father and daughter" even posed for a "family photo" with Ka Fai's on screen wife Yolanda Yuan Quan.
The trailer was also played. Ka Fai appeared in Fat Gor's GOD OF GAMBLERS look and had the flavor of "Dragon". Fat Gor did not hold back either, in another poster he appeared as a fighter and showed off his muscles as he poked fun at Ka Fai's film UNBEATABLE (GIK JIN).
The "Jing Girls" Natalie Meng Yao, Michelle Hu Yan, Kimmy Tong Fei and others attended the Beijing press conference. The host asked Meng Yao which dish would describe her. She said, "Plain bun, because I act with two plain buns." Wang Zizi called herself "spicy beef" because in the film she would wear fiery bikini. She also revealed that lately she has been working out. Wong Jing made fun of her for being so strong that no one would want her.
