The Golden Week box office champion THE MESSAGE accumulated 220 million yuan RMB last week in the Mainland box office. Yesterday Huayi held a celebration in Beijing. The film's cast and crew made an appearance. Huang Xiaoming was working on IP MAN 2 in Shanghai and was absent, but he still sent a congratulatory video. He also jokingly urged the two directors to fulfill the promise: with the film being a hit the complete version will appear in DVD. Reportedly, THE MESSAGE's overseas promotion focused on two aces Huang Xiaoming and Zhou Xun. Most viewers chose to go the movies because of their recognition.
Currently working on IP MAN 2, Huang Xiaoming could not leave the production for the Beijing celebration but sent a video to celebrate with everyone. Due to its length, THE MESSAGE cut many outstanding performance. Fans and actors as well as he regretted that. Wang Zhonglei once promised that if the box office exceeded 300 million he will consider a complete version DVD. Thus in his video Huang Xiaoming jokingly urged the two chairs to fulfill the promise.
