    1941. Hong Kong is occupied by Japanese forces.

    During the three-year-and-eight-month occupation, the Japanese military pillaged and arrested cultural figures living in Hong Kong. The Dongjiang Guerilla unit was tasked with rescuing these cultural figures and extracting them from the besieged city.

    The occupation transformed Hong Kong from a prosperous city into a barren land with no food or water. Primary school teacher, Lan – recently separated from her lover, Rong - and her mother are trying to survive this difficult period in their small run-down flat. After the schools are shut down, Lan unwittingly finds herself embroiled in the guerillas’ mission to save novelist Mao Dun. In the process, she meets Hei-zai, the daring captain of the guerillas. Taking notice of Lan’s calm, resourceful nature, Hei-zai recruits her to join the guerillas.

    Lan sets up a secret liaison point for the guerillas in the city, stealthily delivering intelligence under the watchful eyes of the Japanese military. Worried for her daughter’s safety, Lan’s mother volunteers to take Lan’s place, only to be arrested by the Japanese. To save her mother, Lan is forced to turn to Rong, who now works for the Japanese...

Pakho Chau yesterday appeared at the Book Fair for an autograph session to promote the film THE SINKING CITY: CAPSULE ODYSSEY (SAI FONG GIK LOK TAI BAU TAI JI TAI HUNG CHONG). He gave away posters. Pakho Chau said, "I haven't read this novel, but the script is very funny. Hong Kong hasn't had this type of light humorous film. It's very funny during the shoot. (Andrew) Lam Man Chung kept improvising, I couldn't follow so I just didn't. In addition my character couldn't laugh, so before the shoot I would think about other things to divert my attention. (Did you have any bad take?) This film had no bad take, the outtakes would be cut into the film. In the entire film only Lam Man Chung used foul language. He had no taboo. I have a lot of confidence in this film because it is able to reflect the land problem. Everyone can relate to it."

The film THE FOUNDING OF AN ARMY was the film that director Andrew Lau Wai Keung put the most effort into in the past two years. Director Lau even had the support of many superstars.

Every star of INFERNAL AFFAIRS (MO GAN DOH) was a superstar. Even though they were working in different places they were all willing to take time to shoot a video to support Director Lau. Two days ago Andy Lau Tak Wa, Tony Leung Chiu Wai and Carina Lau Ka Ling started. Yesterday the film company continued to release another video with Leon Lai Ming, Sammi Cheng Sau Man, Kelly Chen Wai Lam, and Gordon Lam Ka Tung. Lai Ming in the video said that he was in a desolate desert, praised Lau Wai Keung as a very experienced good director and hoped everyone would support him; Sammi said that the trailer alone already had blood boiling; Kelly and Ka Tung also cheered on Director Lau Wai Keung in the video.

Chun Yu, Chilam and Ah Sheh just returned from shooting in Penang. They were not shoot in Durian Hill. Chilam said that this time Chun Yu taught him something. "Chun Yu performed drinking right after having durian, which actually was possible. Maybe only he could do it, I didn't dare to try. However the durian there was very delicious." Chun Yu said that he could tell the type of durian from eating it.

In the film Chun Yu and Chilam played Hong Kong and Malaysian cops, while Ah Sheh played a news reporter. Were they responsible for protecting Ah Sheh in the film? Chun Yu sad, "Ah Sheh dragged us into trouble with her. I didn't want to participate. (Do you three have any romance?) The three of us have a great relationship." Did they have any action scene? Chun Yu said, "Some other actors were responsible, we were in car chases and gun fights. We aren't action stars, but we wouldn't mind fighting either." Ah Sheh revealed that she had car chases in the film and was a little scared. Chilam said that he would coordinate. Chun Yu said, "If even you are pretending you are an action actor, what is Jackie Chan then?"

Sister Na was recently caught at the movies with the married producer Charlie Wong Wing Fung. They were already linked in rumors six years ago. Sister Na admitted that they went and said that she has known him for years. They were friends and she knew his wife too. Would she watch herself a little? Sister Na said, "I wouldn't deliberately avoid anyone. (Would you ask Mrs. Wong to go to the moves too next time?) I can." She stressed that she would not choose a married man.

Sister Na said that she was so busy with work that she could not tell how long she has not dated. was she very dry? She said, "I am so dry that I have skin reaction. Hurry up and tell the boss to make a romance to nourish me. (Acting and real life are different.) Work is too busy, I don't have time to get to know anyone. (Do you have any suitor?) No, my friends said that they had to wait three months just to have dinner with me. This year I would be busy with television series and movies."

Andy Lau Tak Wa produced and starred in THE ADVENTURERS (HUP DOH LUEN MUN) again risked his life. During a wired stunt, Wa Jai accidentally hit the edge of a hole and injured his forehead. To prevent from hindering the production, Wa Jai still insisted on continuing the shoot. After the shoot the team realized that Wa Jai was hurt and examined him. They even appreciated his professionalism and gave him a standing ovation. Wa Jai said, "Actually I rather enjoy shooting this film." Wa Jai in the film would battle international film star Jean Reno. They would battle brains and brawn, as the film even shot on location in Europe.

Meanwhile, the Media Asia Film distributed THE FOUNDING OF AN ARMY will open in Hong Kong on August 3rd. Many celebrities who have worked with director Andrew Lau Wai Keung like Lau Tak Wa, Carina Lau Ka Ling and Tony Leung Chiu Wai made videos to support their friends' new film. In the video, Wa Jai did not use a cane and stood up on his own. Wa Jai said that in the 80s he already knew Lau, who had his own vision on handling masculine films. Thus he definitely would support the Lau Wai Keung directed THE FOUNDING OF AN ARMY.

After almost half a year of recovery, yesterday Wa Jai made a "surprise appearance" as he shot a video for the Lau Wai Keung film.

Earlier Wa Jai reportedly was frail and his voice was hoarse. In the video, Wa Jai was not as thin as earlier reported. His voice was not hoarse either. He looked energetic as he did not require a cane. In addition the director's friends Leung Chiu Wai and his wife Lau Ka Ling said a few words in Cantonese and Mandarin to support Lau Wai Keung.

Two nights ago the first screening took place at the Sunbeam Theater in North Point for almost 1,000 viewers. After watching some said, "Very moving!" Director Lau Wai Keung also attended the forum after the screening. He said that he was reminded of a childhood memory. He also sincerely and humorously had exchanges with the audience. A grandmother even thanked the director for bringing him this film and said that she would watch it again and tell her family and friends to watch it again too. Some viewers said that they cried, and some viewers said that no matter what the person's position was, everyone should watch this film.

Giddens Ko cares more about MON MON MON MONSTER's word of mouth than box office

Taiwan director Giddens Ko promoted his new film MON MON MON MONSTER! Earlier he led actors Eugenie Liu, Kent Tsai, Deng Yu-Kai, and Carolyn Chen to Hong Kong. Giddens Ko said that six years ago YOU ARE THE APPLE OF MY EYE made HK$ 61.85 million and set a highest grossing Chinese film box office record in Hong Kong. Instead this time he only asked to break even and not to disappoint his supporters. The pressure for him was not with the box office but with making a rotten film. He said, "After making a rotten film how can I dare to watch the premiere with the actors?"

Playing the monster in the film, Eugenie Liu recalled the pain of the production. Everyday before work she had to spend two hours in make up, after putting on the special contact lenses her vision became blurry. Her costume was so tight that she could not move. After meals she felt sick, and she had skin reaction. She said, "However, thanks to this look I was able to get into character."

Has she thought about becoming a goddess like YOU's Michelle Chen? Eugenie Liu said that she was afraid of comparison. If she was able to become the goddess among monsters then she would be fine. She said, "When I look into the mirror after I change into my costume, I scream from scaring myself. The director says that the monster looks better than the real me. Ko Chen-Tung said that he felt very sick from looking at me. I would take my revenge in the next movie!"

Kent Tsai said that he was shy, so playing a bully was difficult. Playing the teacher, Carolyn Chen said that slapping a student was the most memorable. Because the director asked for a real hit, after work she saw Deng Yu-Kai's mouth was swollen from all the slaps. Deng said, "I have a lot of fun from the performance, during the shoot I was reminded of thugs grabbing me by the collar when I was younger."

The Louis Koo Tin Lok, Ma Li, Michelle Wai Sze Nga, the Grasshoppers starred new film MEOW (MIU SING YUN) two nights ago held a charity premiere. Boss Albert Yeung Sau Sing, Yan Oi Tong vice president Chan Wai Ling attended. Xixili and Goo Jai made two appearances, in the end the actor who played Xixili fainted from the heat. Others had to lower his temperature with small fans. Goo Jai revealed that this time in the film he constantly had to kiss lead actress Ma Li, he ended up breaking his past kiss scene record.

As for his cat alien co-star, Koo Tin Lok admitted that he felt bad for the actor playing it. During the shoot he worried that he would suffer a heat stroke. During the Mainland promotion, he has been under the sun for half a hour and played games with children. Goo Jai said, "Actually he is a mime, because he was very convincing no one could replace him. During the shoot I was worried that would have heat stroke myself." Lead actress Ma Li in the film had intimate scenes with Goo Jai. Ma Li said that they was okay. Goo Jai revealed that on the first day of work the director asked for additional scenes, because every time she got mad, after he kissed her they would be fine. Goo Jai and Ma Li ended up kissing as much as 20 times and broke Goo Jai's kiss scene record.

Wai Sze Nga revealed that in the film Goo Jai was her idol. She kept following him around and said that she was not as popular as Goo Jai. Because whenever Goo Jai appeared on the set, the child actors who were playing with her would abandon her! Would she follow her ideal mate around in real life like in the film? Sze Nga Said, "I would never dare, I wouldn't even dare to look. I would only play scared. Actually I tried to drop hints but he didn't get them. So I would wait for the guy to take the initiative. Now I am so busy with work that I don't dare to think about romance. I warm up slowly, if I am not interested in the suitor I wouldn't even reply to a text. I don't want to lead to any misunderstanding."

Louis Cheung Kai Chung, Joyce Cheng Yun Yi, BabyJohn Choi Hong Yik and Eva Chan Sze Wai earlier promoted their film THE SINKING CITY: CAPSULE ODYSSEY (SAI FONG GIK LOK: TAI BAU, TAI JI, TAI HUNG CHONG). Playing someone rich, Chan Sze Wai wanted to experience the life of the ordinary and worked different jobs. She said that the most memorable was the check in clerk. "In one scene Ah Chung and Yun Yi got upset over the lack of vacancy. Ah Chung picked up a candle and blew it toward me, but the wax went on my chest!" Ah Chung joked that it was the first time he tried dropping wax, at the time he felt sorry. Did he try it normally? He said, "I blew out candles when I was little, how we played was worse than you think!"

Ah Chung said that in the film he and Yun Yi due to housing problems had no place to be romantic. So they went to a couples theme room. He even converted a truck into a room. "On the first day of work Yun Yi and I worked on an intimate scene in the car. We didn't communicate before hand, as soon as we arrived we made out. It's pretty fun." He also praised Yun Yi for her professionalism, but Yun Yi complained that Ah Chung constantly improvised and made her laugh. Ah Chung revealed that adding to the animal instincts during the kiss scene, when they got intimate he made Yun Yi call him the wedge and the mole.

Ah Chung and BabyJohn both worked with Yun Yi on kiss scenes. Who was a better kisser? Yun Yi said, "You can't compare like that, the situations are different." Yet BabyJohn praised tha she was a great kisser.

Bob Lam Sing Bun yesterday promoted his film THE SINKING CITY: THE CAPSULE ODYSSEY (SAI FONG GIK LOK: TAI BAU TAI JI TAI HUNG CHONG) on the streets of Causeway Bay. He put on a ski mask and carried a box cutter to pretend to be a robber, but he was more funny than scary as pedestrians ignored him. He also went to a restaurant to take selfies with its customers and made everyone very happy.

Bob in the film played a repeat offender of theft and robbery, after his release he rented a "space capsule" to live in. In real life he had many properties but he wanted to return to when he lived with his wife for two years in a 200 square foot unit in Mongkok with a complicated environment. He said at the time that he had to work hard and make money, providing a better living environment for his family was his motivation. Seeing his family happy made him happy. Now he and his wife bought properties to invest and save money. He said that he would not give the properties to his children. In the future he would rent them to them at most and charge less. Then he and his wife could live on their own.

Andrew Lam Man Chung two nights ago promoted his film THE SINKING CITY: CAPSULE ODYSSEY (SAI FONG GIK LOK: TAI BAU TAI JI TAI HUNG CHONG). In a suit, Ah Chung carried two guns. Playing the space capsule land lord in the film, he joked that he tried sleeping in the space capsule. It was only a little longer than sleeping in a coffin.

During the shoot, were other actors unable to handle Ah Chung's improvisations? Ah Chung said, "Bad takes weren't my fault. I didn't 'screw up'. They were the ones who were unprofessional. Bob (Lam Sing Bun) in particular was the worst." He even joked that he has always wanted to slap Bob, after two slaps he became addicted. He would slap him one in awhile out of the blue to wake him up.

Ah Chung also said that Yun Yi (Joyce Cheng) was the worst at holding back her laughter. "She was the first one who couldn't hold back her reaction. She would laugh her face into a twist. Cheung Kai Chung (Louis) was able to because he already gave his all. Bob would choke on his noodles, as he ended up spitting it out and swallowing it back in. Pakho Chau as the top dog of course had to maintain his image. He was grinding his teeth to hold back his laughter." Was Ah Chung able to make Pakho crack up in the end? He said, "I have no interest in him at all, I would only make beauties smile."
