The Derek Yee Tung Sing directed, Best Actors Tony Leung Chiu Wai, Lau Ching Wan, Best Actress Zhou Xun starred THE GREAT MAGICIAN (DAI MOR SHOOK SI) released its first character poster at this year's Cannes Film Festival. In it Wai Jai calm stood in the center of the stage as the Great Magician, with a dragon shaped smoke around him. "Dragon" was an important symbol of the East, and this "dragon" at the same time hinted at the film backdrop of the Xinhai Revolution and the early Republic era. The new energy rose like a "dragon in flight", as well as the conservative conspiracy to revive the old dynasty. With the dragon tangling him, the Great Magician would fall into a lot of trouble.
In the film two Best Actors Wai Jai and Ching Wan conducted an elegant duel. Wai Jai not only has to save the beauty but also for the first time performed magic tricks and a lot of action scenes. In order to strengthen the action film visual effects, he moved the wooden pile from THE GRANDMASTERS (YUT DOI JING SI) to practice with during breaks. In order for the audience would enjoy realistic magic, he insisted on continuing to practice magic tricks after the shoot everyday so every performance in the film would be professional. The film production is heating up and will be released at the year end holiday slot.
