  This time around, in a whole new hilarious and sarcastic level, 12 GOLDEN DUCKS tells the story of a bunch of bittersweet gigolos who struggle to survive the economic downturn. Their tireless and striving spirit is precisely the reflection of every Hongkonger living in a metropolis filled with opportunity and hope.

  Devastated by a love affair, former in-demand gigolo Future Chang retreats to Thailand, leading the life a dissolute. Thanks to the intervention of his high school teacher, Mr. Lo, Future summons the courage to return to Hong Kong. With the help of his friend Ricky, a gym trainer, he works hard to get back into shape, determined to make a comeback in the “duck” (male escort) trade. To Future’s surprise, Hong Kong has undergone a dramatic transformation since he left the city. Even the rules of the duck trade have completely changed! In order to ply his trade, Future is reduced seeking clients at an old age nursery home for women. Meanwhile, the places where women can buy happiness have become much more accessible, operating in neighborhood establishments such as a Thai restaurant...Determined to adapt to their new environment, Future and his desperate cohorts Dick Wide, Nebula and Broker Chan decide to dedicate themselves to satisfying the needs of their new client.

  Head of the money laundering organization, Mr. Ko was murdered on his way to the Court by two assassins in an act to silence him.

  According to the Interpol, Ko is not the head honcho of the organization. Above him is a Japanese woman, Ms. Aoi. Her headquarters is built inside an A380 plane – her very own Sky Castle.

  Cool is recruited by the authority as Special Investigation Agent to look into the case, mainly to follow Mark, an IT expert and the Accountant of the organization, and who also happens to be Ko’s cousin. Ken persuades Cool not to take risk, but Cool refuses to listen. Ken can do nothing but watch him go. However, Ken is later stunned to learn that Cool is in fact his biological son. He had him with his ex-girlfriend some twenty years ago and Benz is only the foster parent. Worried about his son’s safety, Ken sets out immediately for Thailand.

  Mark is in possession of dirty money amounting to USD10 billion which he is trying to hide. Aoi sends two killers “Fist” and “Purple” after him to retrieve the money. They get into a fierce wit and fist game with Ken and Cool in Thailand. Ken manages to eventually save Mark. However, Mark is sly as a fox, he slips through Ken’s hands several times before he is finally captured.

  In the midst of it all, Ken stumbles upon his long lost love Molly. Aoi takes Molly away and forces Ken and Cool to board her Sky Castle for a treacherous game with Molly and Mark as the ultimate bet.

  Ken is faced with the biggest gamble he has ever had. Life is at stake at the deathly height of 30,000 feet. Who will emerge as the ultimate winner?

  A spin-off of one of Hong Kong’s most popular TV series about the glamorous lives and romantic escapades of the pilots and flight attendants in the fictional Solar Airways, this movie version with location shoots in England and Belgium features new characters played by superstars Louis Koo and Sammi Cheng, in addition to existing characters reprised by Francis Ng and Julian Cheung.

  Young pilot Branson recently takes over Skylette, his father’s aviation empire, only to realize his old flames Cassie is a flight attendant there. Several years ago, he was forced to break up with her and move to New York to take care of his father's business. To this day, the two continue to harbor feelings for each other but decide to keep them bottled up. In an effort to rebrand the airline, Branson invites rock idol TM to star in an upcoming commercial and appoints Sam as her flying consultant. Incongruent in both tastes and experience, this odd couple gets off on the wrong foot. As the shoot progresses, however, they slowly discover each other's merits, developing a strong mutual attraction. Jayden has left Skylette Airline to become a pilot for private jets. He meets the young and vivacious Kika during a flight and assumes her to be wayward and shallow. But they turn out to have a lot in common and start falling madly in love. At the height of their romance, Jayden realizes almost too late the secret behind her recalcitrance...Each of the three relationships comes with its own setbacks. As long as one can accept the imperfection of things, finding happiness--however fleetingly--is a blessing in itself.

  In the suburbs of Tokyo some time ago, there lived a clumsy boy about 10 years old. There appeared in front of him a boy named Sewashi, Nobita’s descendant of four generations later from the 22nd century, and Doraemon, a 22nd century cat–type caretaker robot who helps people with its secret gadgets. Sewashi claims that his family is suffering from debts Nobita made even to his generation, so in order to change this disastrous future. He brought along Doraemon as Nobita’s caretaker to bring happiness to his future, although Doraemon is not happy about this. And so Sewashi installed an accomplishment program into Doreamon forcing him to take care of Nobita. Unless he makes Nobita happy, Doraemon can no longer go back to 22nd century. This is how the life of Doraemon and Nobita begins. Will Doraemon succeed this mission and return to the 22nd century?
