COLD WAR (HONG JIN) will open on October 18. This film at the same time is the 17th Busan International Film Festival opening film and will hold its global premiere on October 4. Yesterday its stars Aaron Kwok Fu Sing and Tony Leung Ka Fai appeared in Beijing for a heroic duo press conference for the Busan visit.
At the press conference, the film made a "heroic duo special" for the two appearing Best Actors. In the special, Kwok Fu Sing and Leung Ka Fai face off at the police station, battle wits on the roof and other behind the scene details were unveiled. The earlier released trailers, posters and internal screenings made many feel that COLD WAR was the best strong film in the past decade. Both lead actors deeply agreed. "Otherwise why would the Busan Film Festival select a film by two new directors for its opening film? This truly is the pride of our Hong Kong film." Leung Ka Fai said.
They also revealed an indirectly brotherly relationship that few knew about. Because Ka Fai and Sing Sing's older brother, who passed away in 1990, both attended the same school , he always treated Sing Sing like a little brother. Sing Sing always admired Leung Ka Fai very much. When he won his first Best Actor award in 2005, Ka Fai was the first person to embrace him and encourage him. He was as intimate as an older brother. Ka Fai said, "I really treat Sing Sing like a little brother. Seeing his improvement and success, I truly am very happy."
