The Johnnie To Kei Fung directed new film DRUG WAR (DUK JIN) earlier competed in the 7th Rome Film Festival and the 2013 Rotterdam International Film Festival. Later it will be the opening film at the Osaka Asian Film Festival and the Taiwan Golden Horse Fantastic Film Festival. At the same time it was selected for a gala premiere at the Hong Kong International Film Festival and nominated for this year's Asian Film Award Best Picture, Screenplay, Editing and others. The film will have two premieres on March 19. To Kei Fung, Wai Ka Fai, Louis Koo Tin Lok, Sun Honglei and many actors would attend and meet viewers. The tickets have been completely sold out. To Kei Fung daringly challenged the Mainland film release standards, broke through the most sensitive subject in the Mainland and aimed at the ugliest dark side of drugs. Yet he still did not lose his dark humor, unique director style and the ending was unexpected.
