The Tony Leung Chiu Wai, Lau Ching Wan and Zhou Xun starred Emperor Motion Picture GREAT MAGICIAN (DAI MOR SHOOK SI) earlier unveiled the first "magic" themed trailer. Leung Chiu Wai not only displayed his Best Actor acting abilities but also magic. Reportedly the film had no less than 50 magic tricks, thus the trailer was only the tip of the iceberg.
The Bona film industry, Emperor Motion Picture co-release, Derek Yee Tung Sing directed, Leung Chiu Wai, Lau Ching Wan and Zhou Xun's holiday giant production GREAT MAGICIAN's first "magic" themed trailer
had Leung Chiu Wai's agile performance. Wai Jai's pair of electric eyes also hid a secret in the film. Director Yee Tung Sing said that Wai Jai's magic performance would be almost half the film. He not only was a natural born actor but also a natural born magician. As someone who has never been in touch with magic before the shoot, in THE GREAT MAGICIAN he did not look like an amateur at all.
Aside from Leung Chiu Wai's performance in the trailer, Lau Ching Wan and Zhou Xun's appearance also had quite a presence. Lau Ching Wan's eyes were full of the evil warlord's nature. Zhou Xun as a woman of an acrobat family appeared heavy and at ease. Her looks were unusually reserved.
