The 62nd Annual Cannes Film Festival will soon open. The anticipated New Year film BODYGUARDS AND ASSASSINS has an intense production so the cast will not be able to promote in Cannes. Yesterday the film's Cannes Film Festival poster and the cast's costumes were unveiled. BODYGUARDS AND ASSASSINS gathers many top star performers,
including the "gambler" Donnie Yen Chi Tan, "businessman" Wang Xueqi, "rickshaw puller" Nicholas Tse Ting Fung, "Revolutionary" Tony Leung Ka Fai, "Assassin" Hu Jun, "Police Chief" Eric Tsang Chi Wai, "Opera Troupe Daughter" Chris Li Yuchun, "Opera Troupe Leader" Simon Yam Tat Wa, "Concubine" Fan Bingbing and "Beggar" Leon Lai Ming. On the poster the Yen Chi Tan who has a lot of overseas sales draw is in the center, then Tse Ting Fung and Lai Ming are by his sides. Leung Ka Fai and Tsang Chi Wai are in the back.

In addition, the Peter Chan Ho Sun, Wang Jianxin and Polybona created Cinema Popular is not only producing BODYGUARDS AND ASSASINS but also announces four new films in the coming year. They include the Chan Ho Sun directed Eastern fantasy ZHONG KUI, the Chan Ho Sun produced, Dante Lam Chiu Yin directed costume swordplay film THE FLYING GUILLOTINE (HUET DIK JI), the murder mystery QUEEN'S ROAD RIPPER, and the modern city comedy CHOI SUN (FORTUNE GOD). Chan Ho Sun expressed that they are a film department store and not a specialty store. They hope that every viewer can find movies with the most substantial and they like the most here and truly fulfill the dream of "Everyone Watches Cinema Popular".
