The Benny Chan Muk Sing directed, Sammo Hung Kam Bo action directed wuxia epic CALL OF HEROES (NGAI SING) yesterday held a Beijing press conference to announce its August 18th release. Sean Lau Ching Wan, Louis Koo Tin Lok, Eddie Peng Yu-Yan, Yolanda Yuan Quan, Jiang Shuying and others appeared. Goo Jai even revealed that Eddie was "chatty", as soon as he started talking he could not stop. During the interview Goo Jai reminded him, "Try to talk a little less."

Chan Muk Sing said that he waited for Big Brother Big Hung Kam Bo's schedule for a very long time. This time he had the chance to work with him and felt very fortunate. Speaking of the action scenes, Hung Kam Bo said, "I don't have any secret, I am just lucky. They are able to fight like I want, that's my as well as everyone's luck to be able to see fight scenes that have never been performed fought well.

Ching Wan, Goo Jai repeatedly broke through their personal limits in the film, in particular Ching Wan returned to action after 20 years. Goo Jai revealed that in the film he would transform into the villain big boss in the film, so bad that even he himself stated "this is the worst Goo Jai". Speaking of their relationship in the film, Ching wan and Goo Jai both said that this was the first time they were on opposite sides in all the years of working together. As soon as they saw each other they had to fight. Eddie revealed that in the film he played a bearded wanderer, a character that was both capable in both action and art. He said that since playing Wong Fei Hung his action scenes got more and more brutal. In CALL OF HEROES he even had a fight scene that took 53 takes.

At the press conference, Ching Wan and Goo Jai made fun of their "junior". Ching Wan first said that Eddie was a lone ranger like he was in the film, as he seemed like he was never a part of the team. Goo Jai revealed that Eddie was "chatty". He said, "I was afraid to chat with him, as soon as he started he was nonstop. After half a hour of interview he only answered his first question."

Eddie replied, "I was afraid of the two older brothers. Because they were busy, had a lot of scenes and a lot to say, when I got to speak I of course talked more. Just now Big Brother Koo Tin Lok said, 'Try to talk a little less, this topic is almost done'. Of course I would still say a little more at the press conference and share the film experience with everyone." He also said that he would be afraid of working with the two elders so he tried to come up with ways to attract their interest. "I usually would tell myself that they haven't paid too much attention to me. The director liked to give them a lot of room to discuss the film very much, so he hope that when everyone was discussing some ideas about the characters. I had a lot of ideas, then Ching Wan would joke, 'Since you like to play it so much, you go ahead and play it'. He was very cold. I also grew up with their films, I was very happy and was in a very excited state." Goo Jai joked that Eddie talked like he was in a solo performance.

Yuan Quan said that she gave the first fight scene of her career in CALL OF HEROES. She revealed that in the film she played Ching Wan's wife. Although in the film she would revolve around her husband and their daughter, she was not the traditional gentle wife. She was capable of handling defending the nation as well as helping her husband with fending off enemies.
