The film BODIES AT REST (CHUM MUK DIK JING YUN) earlier held its Beijing premiere. Director Renny Harlin with stars Nick Cheung Ka Fai, Yang Zi, Carlos Chan Ka Lok, Ron Ng Cheuk Hei and Roger Kwok Chun On attended. While sharing their production experience, Ka Fai said that every scene he was beaten to death. In one scene his finger was even cut off. The knife was real too. At the moment he really was a little scared.

Cheung Ka Fai said that the film was very memorable. He said that he would be beaten to death in every scene. Unfortunately her co-star Yam Yin Chai was unable to attend and they were not able to run into each other at the Beijing premiere. However Siu Chai sent a video to interact with everyone. Ka Fai was asked about the most memorable part of the fight scene, he was still shaken. "In it are a lot of conflicts. We in the end struck back together. The process was very hard. In one scene my finger was cut. The finger was real, the knife was real too. At the time everyone was very focused. I really was a little scared." Ka Fai admitted that for his tug of war with Siu Chai, he expanded endless energy, endurance and very strong will power to be able to fight for time to protect the evidence.

Kwok Chun On and Ka Fai are buddies. They were super warm on the stage. On Jai also mercilessly made fun of Ka Fai's Putonghua. Ka Fai also humorously responded, "I made up my own style."

In addition Chan Ka Lok in the film played Siu Chai's subordinate with Fung Ka Yi. Yet only he was present. Ka Lok said, "Now I feel like I am fighting alone. In the film the three of us boldly ran amuck on the set. Now I am the only bad guy here, I really am a little scared. Big brothers and sisters please show your mercy!"

Director Renny Harlin said, "Actually since I was little I have always liked Hong Kong film. I would never think that I would have a chance to work together on creating such a film. The feeling is a dream come true." He also praised Ka Fai as the backbone of the film. talented and hard working, he as the role model made other actors perform very well as well.

The Carlos Chan Ka Lok, Taiwan actor Tsao Yu-Ning, and Best Actress Kara Wai Ying Hung starred horror film BINDING SOUL (BONG LING) earlier released its first trailer. The film's backdrop was an abandoned school, shadows of frightening ghosts and World War II Japanese soldiers with the intense pace and music had Hong Kong style ghost film flavor.

Wai Ying Hung returned to horror film with producer "Ghost King" Poon Siu Chung. In the trailer Sister Hung's lingering looks with Angie Shum Yat Ka and Esther Huang's scared faces hinted that the film would be filled with screams. Chan Ka Lok even appeared at the end of the trailer in a Japanese military uniform and an eerie smile.

The Ann Hui On Wa produced Hong Kong film FAGARA (FA JU JI MEI) will open simultaneously in Hong Kong and the Mainland. The film earlier held industry screenings and the audience response was great. Many viewers were moved to tears. The film was the only domestic film that was selected to be a part of the Summer International Film Festival. Last week when tickets went on sale for the August 19th screening it was sold out in a hour.

In the film lead actress Sammi Cheng Sau Man appeared without make up and had to get her hands dirty at the hot pot shop. With her emotionally rich performance, she touched many viewers deeply. Sammi said that, "Earlier I read the novel and the story made a very deep impression. I have always hoped to be able to make a character like the one in the film. The lead absolutely is suppressing her feelings. Her childhood experience left her with a very deep misunderstanding of her father. Thus she always kept a certain distance from her father." Because she also had to suppress her emotion to play this character, she had to force herself to be very busy so she would not be able to settle down to release her emotions and to blur her own senses. Sammi in the film needed that type of "hiding her father's importance to her with hate" to bring the character to life, which also had certain difficulty.

Michelle Wai Sze Nga, Alex Lam Tak Shun, Anna Ng Yuen Yi and Emily Kwan Bo Wai starred in the suspense thriller WALK WITH ME (SEUNG WON). In the film Wai Sze Nga's boss at the factory raped her. Ng Yuen Yi after learning that her daughter was violated changed drastically and chased the factory boss with an axe. Finally the boss died in the hands of the avenging Wai Sze Nga.

Wai Sze Nga stated that she was rather focused during the production, which she also rather enjoyed as she felt a little deranged. "I like cruel and bloody characters, which I can't come in contact with at all in reality. When I think about it I want to shoot it again!" Ng Yuen Yi revealed that while shooting this scene she knocked over a chair by accident, but she was not severely hurt.

The film LITTLE Q (SIU Q) will open on August 15th in Hong Kong. In order for even more people of different ages and classes to learn the message of "harmony between human and dog" that this film wanted to bring out and truly understand the job of a guide dog, Law Chung Him who played a guide dog trainer in the film earlier with literary youth goddess Angela Yuen Lai Lam and the Hong Kong Guide Dog Association brought two guide dogs in training to meet 200 second grade elementary school students at an elementary school. The children were able to come in close contact with and learn about the job of a guide dog. At the same time through interacting with the dogs they shared the message that the film stressed: "acceptance", "tolerance" and "love". Because for most children on hand it was their first counter with guide dogs, they were particularly excited and curious.

With the guide dog trainer and two actors' detailed explanations, the students enthusiastically asked questions. A student even broke through the "blind spot" and asked how the dog relieved itself while on the job. With two months of Guide Dog Association training before the production of LITTLE Q, Him Jai attentively demonstrated and answered questions for the children.

After the event, Law Chung Him and Yuen Lai Lam spoke to the press and mentioned their experience of returning to an elementary school after so many years. Both agreed that their childhood memories rushed back to them! Yuen Lai Lam saw how smart and energetic each of the new generation of children were. At first she thought that they would only have their minds on chatting. She did not expect that the students would listen to the explanations attentively during the process and even ask question seriously. Him Jai said, "Today is the last day of school for the students before summer vacation, in addition they are able to meet guide dogs, so their emotions run especially high. Actually which child isn't active? Their smiles are very therapeutic for me."

Recalling childhood misbehavior, Him Jai revealed that his school cited him on a second level demerit. "I remember while in class I left the classroom with other classmates on our own and hid in the bathroom. With cleaning powder and mops all over the place, the school cited me on a second level demerit."

Francis Ng Chun Yu and Nick Cheung Ka Fai reunite for their new film LINE WALKER 2 (SI TOH HUNG JEH 2 DIP YING HUNG DONG). Chun Yu played Ka Fai and Louis Koo Tin Lok's mentor, with more emotional scenes than action. He joked that at his age he might not be able to handle of a lot of action scenes. Thus he left them to the two "kids".

In the previous film he had a romance with Charmaine Sheh Si Man. Chun Yu admitted that this time originally had arrangements but finally he successfully reflected to the director. "The director after the first film came to his senses and didn't cook up all the romantic relationships. This time is all guy guy, very hot blooded."

Faced with Chun Yu's directness, Ka Fai could not help but make fun of him. "He truly is at the peak of his 'madness'! This time the character can only be handled by people at the peak of 'madness" like him. Normally he also represented all I wanted to say. On the set I really like Chun Yu, because whenever I saw something that wasn't right usually I would watch it once more. Yet at this time he would already be raging and spoke up sooner than me. I couldn't have enjoyed it more, and the matter would be resolved in the end. Isn't that something to be happy about?" Chun Yu struck back, "People like him are so sly! Some stuff has to be expressed together, with the same emotion, but since he was born looking so mean I graciously help. Sometimes they would say that my suggestion was good!"

Since they have both directed before, would they team up to direct later? Ka Fai admitted that he thought about working together on a comedy. "The screenplay is hard to find than a director, because if people don't laugh they would hate it. The lines are pretty dangerous. (Have you talked about it?) I thought about it but I didn't talk with anyone about it. Actually in recent years many new behind the scene talent arose, I suggest for them to use social problems as subjects. Film is a very wide range, anything can happen. It can be a tragedy, romance, comedy, even Wong Jing style comedy can have new ideas. With good ideas I wouldn't mind working together."

Tony Wong Yuk Long's classic domestic comic book DRAGON TIGER GATE will celebrate its 50th anniversary in publishing. Watch company founder William Shum Wai Lam invited Wong Yuk Long to work together on the release of a "Tiger Might Tourbillon Wrist Watch" with protagonist Tiger Wong as the blue print. Yesterday a press conference was held at the Animation Comic Game Hong Kong event at Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Center. Wong Yau Nam also showed his support.

Wong Yuk Long and Shum Wai Lam have known each other for some time. Years ago Wong Yuk Long was already invited to collaboration, but he kept waiting for a good opportunity. The 50th anniversary of DRAGON's publishing was the most worthy of the commemoration, thus they conceived the most explosive work. Shum Wai Lam said that he has always been waiting for the opportunity to work together. This plan took over 1 year. He would hope to have an opportunity to release watches of other DRAGON TIGER GATE characters.

Currently Wong Yuk Long is planning to release DRAGON TIGER GATE television and film products that with mainly Hong Kong investors. Productions will begin next year and he already had some ideas about casting. Some possibly might be the previous DRAGON film's actors. No decision has been made. Would he ask Shum Wai Lam to guest star? Shum said, "I don't have the talent, I am better off sticking with making watches." Wong Yuk Lam suggested for him to play a playboy character, as only the opposite of reality would be challenging.

The new film LINE WALKER 2 (SI TOH HUNG JEH 2 DIP YING HUNG DONG) yesterday announced two more production specials. Best Actors Nick Cheung Ka Fai, Louis Koo Tin Lok and Francis Ng Chun Yu revealed their brotherhood in the film. Director Jazz Boon (Man Wai Hung)'s attentive set up filled the brotherhood with conflicts and suspicions at every step. Man Wai Hung continued the relationship word of LINE WALKER and fully displayed the undercover relationship, hard to tell between good and evil "LINE WALKER Spirit". In the production special, Best Actors Cheung Ka Fai, Koo Tin Lok, Ng Chun Yu had different identities, at times they were brothers and at times they suspected each other to demonstrate the dark side of humanity. Man Wai Hung admired the three Best Actors for taking their characters to their fullest. Their performance kept everyone intrigued and set chills down everyone's spine. The special relationship between Cheung Ka Fai and Koo Tin Lok showed the sacrificial spirit of the "LINE WALKER Spirit" when faced with life and death choices.

After two years of planning, the film BODIES AT REST (CHUM MUK DIK JING YUN) will officially open this summer. Lately many posters have been released. The posters were shot after the production wrapped up, but Ka Fai and Siu Chai seemed to still be in character. In a doctor robe and surgical gloves, Ka Fai looked mild mannered with gold rimmed glasses. Even with surgical scissors and clamps in hand he still had a gentle look in his eyes; playing a robber Siu Chai wore a Santa Claus mask but his vicious eyes pierced through it and sent chills down the spine. During their photo together Siu Chai grabbed Ka Fai's robe by the collar and looked mean. Ka Fai was unarmed but had a look full of hate, which made people curious about what happened while being trapped in this morgue for 5 hours.

Ka Fai stated that this film tested his acting, because he "fought too well" but had to hide his capability for the role. It was very difficult. He said, "In the film I played a mild mannered forensic scientist who didn't know how to fight. By logic he would take a beating and not know how to fight back, but during the shoot my UNBEATABLE (GIK JIN) abilities unknowingly came out as an unconscious and natural reaction. At first I didn't realize. After a round when director Renny Harlin watched the playback he discovered it. He said that I had to hide it well and couldn't let the audience realize that I had some training." Siu Chai said, "In the film I had professional training, a great fighter, but Ka Fai was mild mannered and would only fight like a thug. In other words he would only react and block, dodge or throw things like glass bottles, fire extinguisher based on his instinct. Ka Fai was very attentive and very experienced. He knew from which angle to strike to avoid really getting 'busted open'. On the other hand, because his character didn't know how to fight he had to take a beating instead. Although we took all the safety precaution, anyone who saw him would feel his pain."

Ka Fai and Siu Chai 14 years ago made BREAKING NEWS (DAI SI GEIN) together. This time BODIES AT REST's director DIE HARD 2's director Renny Harlin. Siu Chai said, "This time felt pretty special. The director drew the storyboard before hand, every shot was divided in great detail, so was every emotion and action." Ka Fai said, "As actors we of course want to try everything. This time had a foreign director, foreign ideas in a Hong Kong film, which felt very refreshing!"

Aside from all the fighting, the film also had a lot of emotional scenes. Although Ka Fai and Siu Fai in the film were on opposite sides, from another angle Siu Chai's character went on the road of no return for his family. He said, "My character has a lot of dimensions. I wasn't a natural born bad person. I want to give my family a good life and turn bad. From Ka Fai's standpoint I of course am the bad guy, I use a lot of ways to hurt people around him. Maybe I use the weakness in his soul to force him to the brink and make him submit. This scene is very memorable for me, Ka Fai's expression change is handled with a lot of details." Ka Fai humbly said, "I was only following your performance!" Siu Chai asked Ka Fai, "Actually you are very attentive, you are a good director. When will you direct again and make a movie with me? I will give it my all!"

The Hong Kong Guide Dog Association has always worked hard to provide free guide dog pairing to the vision impaired and has fully assisted with the production of the Hong Kong version guide dog film LITTLE Q (SIU Q), which will open on August 15th. Boss Alex Wong Hoi Fung and director Law Wing Cheong understood the operation difficulties of the Hong Kong Guide Dog Association and began a complete project to raise fund for it, including the fb+ig event that started on July 11th.

To show her support, Joseph Lau Lueng Hung Charitable Foundation founder Kimbee Chan Hoi Wan became one of the event's launchers and she led an online photo campaign with pets. The foundation in the end also generously donated HK$ 100,000 to the Hong Kong Guide Dog Association.

Kimbee for this event earlier even accepted a physical challenge of being blindfolded and walking around the Windsor House shopping center with a guide dog. With the assistance of Hong Kong Guide Dog Association trainers, Kimbee first learned some guide dog commands, gestures and basic communication orders. After half a hour of training, Kimbee and Ringo established a bond. When the trainer said to put on the blindfold, Kimbee's first step was a little cautious. Yet when Ringo rapidly completed Kimbee's first order, Kimbee and Ringo went smoother and smoother. Kimbee said, "With the blindfold I really couldn't see at all. I feel the guide dog is very special and very smart, it would give me a lot of confidence." After completing the experience, she stated that she would like to work with the Hong Kong Guide Dog Association again. Currently Hong Kong only has around 40 guide dogs for its 180,000 vision impaired people. Thus she hoped through different collaborations to be able to help those in need as well as enable the public to understand and accept guide dogs even more.

The abdomen bandage can still be seen under his white tee

Mani Fok asks reporters not to knock down Simon Yam

The 64 year old Simon Yam Tat Wa last Saturday while attending an event in Zhongshan was attacked, stabbed in the abdomen and suffered severe injuries on four fingers on his right hand. He was immediately rushed to the local hospital for surgery. Later he returned overnight to Hong Kong Adventist Hospital for further treatment and a second surgery. Everything went smoothly. Brother Wa stayed at the hospital for four days, his recovery has been ideal. Yesterday afternoon he was released and able to return home to return. He appeared to be in good spirit and revealed that his hand injuries would require some time to heal. He hoped to return to work on films as soon as possible, as he even stated that he could "tough it out"!

Brother Wa after many years of treatment at the hospital yesterday left the hospital at 1PM with manager Mani Fok Man Hei. In blue athletic wear and cap, Brother Wa looked well. His right hand was bandaged and in a protective sling. Yet from his white tee the bandage on his abdomen could be seen Brother Wa stood still for media photos, raised his thumb and waved. He moved about at will, and the appearance lasted around 8 minutes before he left.

Mani communicated with the media before Brother Wa appeared. She said that Brother Wa would come out and speak for two minutes, but no questions. After that she asked everyone to let Brother Wa take his time to get into the vehicle and not to chase him. Since she was afraid that any harm would come to him, she asked everyone for their cooperation.

Then Brother Wa came out for photos. The hospital representative presented flowers to him. He was friendly and gave interviews in Cantonese and Putonghua. He kept saying "thank you" but did not mention how he got hurt. He said, "Thank you all, thank you to so many friends for their concern over the past few days. Thank you to all of you. With this incident, although I was hurt I still am very grateful to the Zhongshan hospital. Thank you very much to the Hong Kong medical staff, thank you very much to Emperor for their attentive arrangements. After the incident occurred, the Zhongshan medical staff was very helpful and did many different tests. After coming back here, the Hong Kong medical staff immediately examined me once more and did another physical exam so I was able to be all stable; thank you everyone for your concern, thank you Mr. Yeung, the most important is thank you everyone for your care. Now my hand needs a little time to recover. I hope to be able to recover soon and continue to make movies, because I really like to make movies."

Brother Wa then thanked everyone again in Putonghua. "Thank you for your efforts over the past few days, special thanks to Mainland Zhongshan. After the incident occurred, they immediately arranged for me to have surgery. Thank you for taking care of me and very smoothly complete everything. From the Mainland to Hong Kong (hospital), to today, about five days have passed. The operation progressed rather well, as I am able to slowly recover. Now my hand still needs some time because nerves need time to heal. I hope to be able to return and make movies soon. Thank you everyone for your concern for me, especially to my family and my daughter."

Brother Wa's wife Qi Qi did not accompany her husband on his release. She actually began earlier and then returned home to wait for Brother Wa. Later she even expressed how she felt and said thank you for the past few days. "The past few days to us were unusually long and tough, fortunately the optimistic and positive Brother Wa gave us confidence and energy. Today Brother Wa is released from the hospital, we are back home......thank you to all the medical staff for the attentive care, thank you to family and friends for the support and the encouragement, thank you Boss Yeung and all the workers, and thank you friends of the media. It has been tough on you all. We will continue to coordinate with the therapy, and believe that Brother Wa will be able to come back and see everyone very soon. Thank you everyone again, we are grateful!"
