Media Asia yesterday at the Hong Kong Film Market held a new film revue as stars spilled over to promote. Attendees included Media Asia group chief Peter Lam Kin Ngok, Andy Lau Tak Wa, Sammi Cheng Sau Man, Shawn Yue Man Lok, Andrew Lau Wai Keung, Peter Chan Ho Sun, Pang Ho Cheung, Soi Cheang Po Shui, Sun Jianjun, Mini Yang Mi, Zhang Jingchu, Josie Ho Chiu Yi, Wilfred Lau Ho Lung and others. They each appeared on the stage to introduce their new films.
In the coming year Media Asia will release five big productions, three of which will star Ah Lok. First to be introduced was the release next Thursday, LOVE IN THE BUFF (CHUN GIU YU JI MING). Although lead actress Miriam Yeung Chin Wa was unable to appear, Pang Ho Cheung revealed on her behalf that she has always been helping with the online promotion and joked that he has already decided to wait for the box office to pass 100 million peacefully. Lam Kin Ngok was all grins. Ah Lok then continued to introduce two other films MOTORWAY (CHEH SAU) and THE GUILLOTINES (HUET DIK JI). He recalled that his first scene for MOTORWAY was totalling the car, which left him somewhat shaken.
Wa Jai in his new film DWELLING IN THE FUCHUN MOUNTAIN was between two beauties Zhang Jingchu and Lin Chiling. Thus He joked that every time at work was both happy and dangerous. Director Sun Jianjun also took the chance to present a DWELLING IN THE FUCHUN MOUNTAIN replica to Lam Kin Ngok as a present; in addition, Wa Jai and Sammi also introduced their new film MAN TAM (BLIND DETECTIVE). The buddies immediately trades pleasantries. Wa Jai joked that when he worked with Sammi before usually he fought more than he acted. Now he has improved to act more than fight. Because the director wanted him to play a blind person who would not wear glasses, just how to play blind was hard enough; Later Sammi said that the film will start production in May or June. This time she seemed to be Wa Jai's understudy, indeed she will have more fight scenes than him. Sammi joked, "I truly would rather fight, I am not confident enough to play blind. Luckily this character didn't fall onto me. However Wa Jai personally performed stunts for me, like in some dirty places that I didn't want to lie down in he did without even hesitation. He is almost my private action director."
Speaking of Wa Jai's wife who was close to giving birth, would such a late production be affected? Wa Jai said that he was fine. Sammi immediately defended him and told the media not to ask when she was expecting. Then she realized that she was in over her head and immediately said to ask Wa Jai. Speaking of reports that Wa Jai brought a property for his wife and daughter and decided to name her Lau Wan Sin, Wa Ja said, "I didn't read it, I don't want to mention my family over such reports. Leave it for people who want to read it." Did he feel A SIMPLE LIFE (TOH JEH)'s rave review were due to luck from his daughter? Wa Jai smiled and said okay and thank you.
