Donnie Yen Chi Tan and Max Zhang Jin two nights ago attended IP MAN 3's Shanghai premiere and displayed the film's weapons Bart Cham Dao and six and a half point pole. Yen Chi Tan joked about the origin of Bart Chao Dao. "Because Zhang Jin kept chasing me with this blade, when he took 8 steps, the blade injured my nose."

The Fiona Sit Hoi Kei, Du Jiang and Wong Cho Nam starred romantic comedy MR. HIGH HEELS opened in the Mainland on Valentine's Day. Despite the competition from Lunar New Year hits, its box office performance was still pleasing. As of two days ago it has already made over 105 million RMB and left the other romance of the same period RUN FOR LOVE in its dust. Fiona visited 5 cities and over 30 cinemas in 6 days to thank viewers and shared her experience like touching herself in front of Du Jiang and posing with him with victory signs like girls. During her Shenzhen stop, a male fan tried to book the entire show himself and moved her idol with money, but he was convinced otherwise as he gave all the tickets to give to Fiona fan couples and enjoy the film with them.

Viewers kept praising her performance in the film as "super funny" and "very entertaining". Some fan even screamed, "You are very pretty" and turned the question and answer segment into an "expression of love". When asked about love, Fiona admitted that she would always treat people and events with distrust. For example before she started dating she would already be worried about how to get along after she started dating. Once she was officially dating, she would worry whether he would cheat. Yet after her depression and with the support of her religion her view changed drastically. She said, "Now I have learned to live in the moment, grateful for and enjoying everything that the Lord has given me. I don't think too much, I work hard at making myself better. I believe that naturally I will have good results. Even if I have any problem, I have enjoyed and been happy. I wouldn't be alone in worry."

This year was rather special as the good time was early morning on the Lunar 29th. He had to go to the temple at 9AM on the Lunar New Year's Day. He did not have to sleep at all and he was asked not to bathe. In the end he ignored everything. Did his relatives ask him about getting married? He said that no one ever has, but someone hinted that he would come for lai see at such his age. Yesterday the government budget announced HK$ 20 million allocation for domestic films' Mainland distribution and promotion uses. Goo Jai felt the amount was not important, but how the fund would be used. He hoped that everyone would properly use financial assistance to make daring and innovative domestic productions. Would he direct? He said, "I am very certain that I won't direct. In the last few years many asked me to, but directing is another area. If I have to do it, I would have to drop all jobs including acting and study anew because the director has to use the camera to tell a story. Now as an actor I am very happy and very pleased. Even if I have a chance to direct in the future it will probably be when will be am already very old and retired, when I won't have anything to do. (Have you thought about any subject?) Yes, but I would talk about it with directors and let them make it."

Before the banquet began, Sil-Metropole organization chief Chen Yiqi spoke of the Mainland box office of 44 billion RMB last year due to the hard work of film workers of the three lands on both sides of the strait. The 13 year of high speed growth was maintained. He believed in two to three years China will replace North America as the largest film market in the world. The Chinese culture's international influence will be further elevated. In 2015, Hong Kong reached 1.9 billion at the box office, the most in history. As the Lunar New Year began, the film market again created a miracle. As of two days ago the Mainland box office broke 1 billion RMB in 54 days and tied the 2010 box office. As the Chinese film market bloomed, Sil-Metropole will as usual continue to strengthen and expand a variety of collaborations with its Hong Kong colleagues. Sil-Metropole will maintain the ten films or above collaboration format. Coming soon will be the Sean Lau Ching Wan and Nicholas Tse Ting Fung starred HEARTFALL ARISES (GAING SUM PO) and SUN HUNG TAI BO 2016.
