The Wong Jing directed, Ching Siu Tung action directed new film FUTURE X-COPS (MEI LOI GAING CHAT) two nights ago held a charity premiere in Causeway Bay. Actors Andy Lau Tak Wa, Barbie Hsu (Tsui Hei Woon), Louis Fan Siu Wong and Xu Jiao attended to raise fund for UNICEF.
Lau Tak Wa expressed that the FUTURE X-COPS production used a lot of computer special effects. During the shoot he could only wear a flimsy suit for the post production computer special effect, but due to the chilly Mainland winter the temperature was only 20 some degrees Celsius below zero. The costume was strange as well. Wa Jai said, "The costume look is very ugly."
As for FUTURE X-COPS' less than ideal Taiwan box office, Wa Jai honestly said that he would try harder next time. Was science fiction difficult to please the audience with? Wa Jai said, "You can't say that, it's the current market's issue. It takes time." Will Wa Jai make any recently popular 3D movie? "I won't, I feel 3D movies shouldn't be made because you want to. 3D should be a requirement for the movie." FUTURE X-COPS had the conditions for 3D, but Wa Jai did not feel that the film would become a 3D film with a later release. He said, "The release may require a lot of testing, I am also afraid of how the results might have turned out because some 3D movies didn't stand out too much."
Having worked with Charlene Choi Chuek Yin numerous times and also suffered pressure from the public about hiding his marital status, Wa Jai expressed that lately he has not contacted Ah Sa. "Now I can't even decipher real from fake news, the only thing I can say is, I would believe and support her as my friend. Anything else is no longer the black and white that ordinary people can tell apart." Did the incident affect his image? Wa Jai sighed, "After some incidents, everyone's feeling would definitely be a little different. I believe the Ah Sa I know is still Ah Sa."
Big S in the event expressed that her idol since childhood has been Lau Tak Wa. About this chance to work with him and even kiss him in the film, Big S said, "I once dreamed about kissing Wa Jai, this time it came true. In the film I had to force a kiss on him. At first I grabbed his ear then I forced a kiss on him, a very unruly kiss. After the shoot I truly couldn't sleep. The feeling was very exciting and very wonderful, and he didn't change at all from the photo back then." Big S said that when she was in school, her book bag was full of cover photos of Wa Jai's cassettes. She never imagined that now she would be in such close contact with her idol. As for FUTURE X-COPS' Taiwan box office, Big S pointed out that perhaps different areas' tastes were different. She was still very confident in the Hong Kong and Mainland box office. Xu Jiao this time came to promote in Hong Kong. She expressed that she called her god father Stephen Chow Sing Chi, who expressed that he would definitely make time to watch her performance.
