Purchasing the WU XIA North American distribution rights, the famous U.S. distributor The Weinstein Company's boss Harvey Weinstein held a private yacht party for the film's team, including Mr. and Mrs. Peter Chan Ho Sun, Mr. and Mrs. Donnie Yen Chi Tan, Takeshi Kaneshiro (Gum Sing Mo), Tang Wei and others. Two time Oscar Best Actress winner Jane Fonda made an appearance as a mystery guest and surprised everyone.
After three days of whirlwind promotions, they finally were able to relax on a yacht cruise. Sandra Ng Kwan Yu was envious of how energetic Jane Fonda was. Actually Jane Fonda has seen Kwan Yu and Chi Tan's movies so when she learned about their appearance at the party she jumped at the chance to participate. When Jane Fonda arrived, she just missed the film's premiere. However Sarah Jessica Parker and Harvey Weinstein kept recommending this film to her so she looked forward very much to seeing WU XIA in the U.S. and would not miss the chance to see it again.
Sarah Jessica Parker gave WU XIA plenty of face in Cannes. First she and Adrien Brody appeared at the Weinstein new film introduction, then she wore a butterfly dress to the WU XIA red carpet "butterfly effect". Sarah appeared again at the party. Sarah at the party told Kwan Yu how amazing Chan Ho Sun was. She also said that she has never seen such an exciting film and praised Yen Chi Tan's action design.
The actors enjoyed themselves at the party and enjoyed the Cannes scenery at sea. Chan Ho Sun, Ng Kwan Yu, Yen Chi Tan and Cissy Wang kept taking photos, Tang Wei savored the food while Gum Sing Mo drank in the sea breeze in a rare chance to relax.
