The Andrew Lau Wai Keung produced, Wong Jing directed, Chow Yun Fat, Huang Xiaoming, Sammo Hung Kam Bo, Francis Ng Chun Yu starred THE LAST TYCOON (DAI SEUNG HOI) released its international poster at the Toronto International Film Festival and in the overseas film magazine Screen Daily.
On the poster, Fat Gor's back was turned toward the camera with a gun in his hand and a serious look on his face. In front of him was a large banner with the word honor on it atop Shanghai. Behind him was the English title. Several of Fat Gor's stills from the film were revealed. In the stills he was shooting a gun and looking cool. In recent years Fat Gor mostly starred in costume films. He personally has not held a gun in a film a long time.
The film's overseas seller Bona film group said that Fat Gor in previous film posters for A BETTER TOMORROW (YING HUNG BOON SIK), THE KILLER (DIP HUET SEUNG HUNG) and others all held guns and looked mighty. For years they have always been classic among film fans.
An overseas professional film site earlier unveiled THE LAST TYCOON's first trailer. Although it was brief it was extraordinary. Hung Kam Bo in the film returned the master invitation to Chow Yun Fat and they were no longer master and disciple but sworn brothers. The trailer displayed Fat Gor receiving the brothers' bows as the boss and thoroughly showed his power.
