Tony Leung Chiu-Wai 梁朝偉
aka <shirenu> tony leung thread would be like, the eternal temple of cum

(http://www.imgur.com/files/081128/S-tony-leung2.jpg)

One of Hong Kong's greatest actors, he rose from the ranks of Kiddie TV (with fellow struggling actor Stephen Chow Sing-chi (http://forum.jphip.com/index.php?topic=925.0)) to become HK TVB's biggest stars to go on into movies and star in Cannes Film Festival caliber movies such as Chunking Express and In The Mood For Love - he knows no boundaries, starring in the crappiest comedies to the raunchiest sex scenes  (Lust, Caution) ... Wai Jai (aka "Lil Tony" as his fans call him) takes on John Woo's latest EPIC Red Cliff (http://forum.jphip.com/index.php?topic=16529.0) and whatever Wong Kar Wai can think of (their version of Ip Man's biopic (http://forum.jphip.com/index.php?topic=17522.0)?) And as my homegirl shirenu sez:

<shirenu> lol egg dvd is coming at 280kbps
<shirenu> i never get this type of speeds!
<shirenu> if only tony would come as fast
<shirenu> no pun intended
<daigong> that 1 minute man!
<shirenu> waow 315kbps
<shirenu> no no he's slow
<shirenu> ...
<daigong> ROFL
<shirenu> he can last for days

^ born to love Tony? GREAT XD XD Yea, he's had the fortune to work with an eclectic amount of actors/actresses. I wonder when he's gonna do Hollywood?? His english is pretty good (compated to say - Jackie Chan xD) I thought he'd be in his buddy Wong Kar Wai's  first western movie "Blueberry nights" but he deserved better!

Great that Tony Leung is recognized for his talent worldwide.  imo, He's one of the best actors not just in HK or China or even Asia, but in the world. 
He's great as a comedic actor but also an amazing actor in general, his serious-ness and action role are some of the best I'd ever seen. 

btw, I heard that Robert De Niro is a fan of his. great that a famous hollywood actor even recognize his talent.

Tony Leung injured while training for 'Grand Master'

Hong Kong media are reporting that actor Tony Leung Chiu-wai has broken his left arm during a training session for Wong Kar-wai's upcoming kung fu movie THE GRAND MASTER. For the past seven years Leung has been prepping for the role of Ip Man in Wong's long in development, alternate take on the Wing Chun legend who is also portrayed by Donnie Yen in Wilson Yip's IP MAN and its upcoming sequels. Leung has worked closely with Ip's son Ip Chun and has been performing extensive body conditioning in the gym while practicing with various martial arts instructors.

During one of these training sessions on Monday, the 47-year-old actor reportedly surprised a Wing Chun master with a full-force attack. This apparently caused the master to react instinctively in self defense by kicking Leung's left arm and causing the unintended break. Leung immediately fell to the floor and was subsequently rushed to the hospital where x-rays revealed a bone break. Leung has refused to use a cast as he fears muscle atrophy. Regardless, he'll be out of commission for some time until the arm heals sufficiently. In response to this injury, Leung said that he has gone into the project mentally prepared to suffer injury and expects the actual production to be worse.

This, ladies and gentlemen, is dedication and the reason why I and so many others have such respect for Hong Kong's veteran actors and stunt professionals. You won't see any Hollywood actor training for seven years for a single action-oriented role or brushing off injury so easily. My fear though is that Leung may be pushing himself too hard to match the better-trained Donnie Yen, especially since Yen was nominated by the Hong Kong Film Awards for Best Actor in IP MAN earlier this year. Comparisons will undoubtedly be made between the two performances. However, I'm certain that Wong Kar-wai has a different vision for his version of Ip Man, just as I am certain that Leung will deliver another excellent performance.

THE GRAND MASTER is currently scheduled for release in 2010, although depending on how long Leung's injury takes to heal it could be pushed back. The film also stars Gong Li who reportedly will play a female martial arts master, which would be a first for the veteran mainland actress. Brigitte Lin, forever the indomitable 'Invincible Asia" to many fans, is also making a comeback in this movie. Her last role was in Wong's wuxia masterpiece ASHES OF TIME, originally released in 1994 and re-released in a revised director's cut in 2008 as ASHES OF TIME REDUX.

BREAKING NEWS!!

(http://img3.imageshack.us/img3/7058/news14i.jpg)

Already eight years in the making, Wong Kar Wai's 'The Grand Master' will officially start filming in November. As Tony had broke his arm training for the movie, filming was delayed for two months while he recovered. Earlier on, Tony began training anew and has fully immersed himself into martial arts again. Even the Wing Chun masters who have been training Tony have praised his understanding and skill in Wing Chun. Tony is preparing to film 'The Grand Master' in his best form.

Does Light Exercises While Recovering

Tony's been training at the martial arts school under the guidance of Master Yip Siu Hung and his disciples. While he had to stop training during his recovery period, Tony was still able to do light exercises. He says that kung fu training is something you can never get enough of anyway. Tony expressed that the past two months have been like an extended holiday. His doctor had strongly advised him to wait at least three months before doing any vigorous activity. After resting for a few weeks, he began exercising again to keep his body in shape. Everyday he'll run for one or two hours. He also arranged for one-handed fitness sessions at the gym to keep his arms and legs in shape. In order to keep his arm immobile while running, he had to bandage it tightly to prevent any movement. Whenever he saw people on the streets, they would kindly ask him how his recovery was going and reminded him to be more careful.

Best Actor to Play Yip Man

Master Leung has been very satisfied with Tony's performance. He especially admired Tony's 'never give up' attitude. He has high hopes for Tony in the role of Yip Man. He believes Tony's spirit, appearance and comprehension is very similar to Master Yip Man and is the ideal candidate to play him.

Lurkers beware!!!

Tony Leung to Lead Movie Version "Lurk"

Director Gao Xixi has announced that Tony Leung will be the lead actor in the movie version of the television series "Lurk," according to the website Chinafilm.com.

Gao said he had been waiting for an opening in Leung's schedule so he could star in the film. Leung should be available for filming in the second half of the year.

Gao also said Fanny Shu who will star opposite Leung in "Lurk" has not confirmed her schedule yet, as her other film "If You Are the One 2" will be also shooting in the second half of the year. Both Leung and Shu are two of the busiest actors in China's film industry.

As for the difference between the movie version and TV series "Lurk," Gao said while the two only share the same name, the storyline in the film version is totally different.

Weibo news: Tony Leung and Carina Lau join Weibo

With more and more celebrities and other public figures joining day by day, Weibo (Asian Twitter) (http://t.sina.com.cn/) has definitely taken the entertainment industry by storm!

The newest celebrity to join Weibo is multi-Best Actor winner Tony Leung Chiu Wai (who only joined day before yesterday). On his first Weibo postings, Tony indicated that currently, in addition to being busy with the filming of "Grand Master", he has also been working on a commercial – in his posting, he uploaded a picture of himself with cinematographer Xia Yong Kang as well as other crew members. After only 1 day, the popular actor already has over 26,000 fans “following” him and one posting alone already has over 2,200 replies.

Tony’s wife, actress Carina Lau, also joined Weibo yesterday and posted 1 message so far, stating “Hi Everyone, I am Carina Lau”. Tony and Carina have yet to “follow” each other on Weibo – in fact, so far, both of them have only added production company Jet Tone Films to their “Follow” lists.

Cecilia Cheung, Tony Leung to Star in Chinese Version of 'The Illusionist'     
2010-06-30 16:31:09     CRIENGLISH.com       Web Editor: yangliu

Hong Kong actress Cecilia Cheung will star with Tony Leung in Derek Yee's new film which will begin shooting next February, Cheung said recently in Shanghai.

When Derek Yee replied to questions from the Hong Kong press, he confirmed that this film will be Cheung's first since giving birth to her two sons in three years.

The film, entitled "Da Moshu Shi" ("Great Magician"), is a story about two childhood sweethearts set during the early part of the twentieth century. Yee had intended to keep the film a secret until it was discovered by the Guangzhou Daily. Information about the film was found on the Web site of the State Administration of Radio, Film, and Television (SARFT).

"Great Magician" is in line with "The Illusionist", a period drama based loosely on the Steven Millhauser story "Eisenheim the Illusionist", which was later adapted to the American big screen by Neil Burger. Actor Edward Norton starred in the film with Jessica Biel and Paul Giamatti. The film tells the story of Eisenheim, a magician in early 20th century Vienna.

Derek Yee's version occurs during the same period in China. Tony Leung is set to play the role of the intelligent illusionist, while Cheung will play a concubine to a warlord.

The director collaborated with Cheung in "Lost in Time", which helped her win the best actress award at the Hong Kong Film Awards in 2004. And the last time Cheung and Leung worked together was in the action comedy "Tokyo Raiders" eleven years ago. "Leung is cool and gentle. I feel very lucky to have the chance to work with him again," said Cheung.

After Carina Lau was photographed with a Mainland rich man, husband Tony Leung's mood has been pretty bad. Earlier when he attended to an event in Shanghai, he even canceled reporters' interview, which isn't his usual style of answering any type of question. Tony is back home after several days. Yesterday he shopped alone in Central. Wearing a sunglasses, he was asked how come wife Carina wasn't with him? When he heard wife's name, Tony only smiled and didn't answer. He then got on his car and left. It seems they ironed out their problem already.

Tony Leung & Andy Lau meets again, chats constantly

(http://img831.imageshack.us/img831/838/news6.jpg)
(Caption: Within Jiangmen Star Park stands the statue for both Andy Lau and Tony Leung) (Tony's statue is his role as Zhou Yu in "Red Cliff")

Former "TVB Five Tigers" members Tony Leung and Andy Lau made a rare appearance together at the Star Park Jiangmen City Opening Ceremony (江門市星光公園開園儀式). Other Jiangmen native artists including Eric Tsang, Kiki Sheung, Gillian Chung, and Deep Ng also appeared. The stars-loaded event attracted a large group of local citizens to surround the location.

(http://img219.imageshack.us/img219/4521/news5b.jpg)

During the ceremony, Tony and Andy were the most popular, they both were dressed in black and white shirts respectively. Though the two have once been rumored that they were on bad terms, but this time meeting again, Andy and Tony shook hands and were chatting constantly.

Tony expressed that he's currently shooting a new movie The Great Master (一代宗師) in Guangdong, he said: "I am from Taishan and especially took a several hour car ride to come support my hometown Jiangmen. This time, I did not accept any fee for Jiangmen City to invite me, very happy to see so many Jiangmen native artists who also attended. I have to rush back to the filming set later." Tony frankly said that he doesn't go back to his hometown very often, and is happy to see the great development, he hopes to come back more often. Asked if he will buy a house in his hometown? He laughed: "I never thought that far into the future."

Eric Tsang is also very happy that there are nearly 100 artists who took time off their busy schedules to attend the event, he was surprised: "We all have love for our hometown, very touching. I promise that I will make more contributions to my hometown."

It's a pretty sentimental movie. Tony takes the fall for his buddy and ends up getting kicked out of medical school. While his friend goes on to become a celeb doctor, he goes to the seedy parts of Hong Kong to help the hookers and triads and locals. Going to old seniors with medicine and shit. Doctor Mack is truly THE PEOPLE'S DOCTOR!!

Many layers into this like Andy Hui's young impressionable student doctor wants to learn from Doctor Mack BUT DO YOU REALLY KNOW WHAT BEING A DOCTOR IS ALL ABOUT>?! Separate the emotion and all that kinda story. cuz deep down, Tony had to deal with the loss of the woman he loved to bone cancer, and keeps treating her sister whom Andy Hui falls for.

There's other story angles like Lau Ching-wan falling for the thinking man's hooker and he's too shy to ask her out and finds out that she happened to have her ovum removed by Doctor Mack, that's why they were close and Ching-wan's all "I don't care, I love you!"

Real feel good, sad moments kinda movie. GJ UFO. of course it helps with powerful actors.

The Derek Yee Tung Sing directed, Best Actors Tony Leung Chiu Wai, Lau Ching Wan, Best Actress Zhou Xun starred THE GREAT MAGICIAN (DAI MOR SHOOK SI) released its first character poster at this year's Cannes Film Festival. In it Wai Jai calm stood in the center of the stage as the Great Magician, with a dragon shaped smoke around him. "Dragon" was an important symbol of the East, and this "dragon" at the same time hinted at the film backdrop of the Xinhai Revolution and the early Republic era. The new energy rose like a "dragon in flight", as well as the conservative conspiracy to revive the old dynasty. With the dragon tangling him, the Great Magician would fall into a lot of trouble.

In the film two Best Actors Wai Jai and Ching Wan conducted an elegant duel. Wai Jai not only has to save the beauty but also for the first time performed magic tricks and a lot of action scenes. In order to strengthen the action film visual effects, he moved the wooden pile from THE GRANDMASTERS (YUT DOI JING SI) to practice with during breaks. In order for the audience would enjoy realistic magic, he insisted on continuing to practice magic tricks after the shoot everyday so every performance in the film would be professional. The film production is heating up and will be released at the year end holiday slot.

Tony Leung Says 'The Great Magician' Comes Fast

Actor Tony Leung Chiu-wai, who is working with director Derek Yee on the film, "The Great Magician", has praised Yee for being productive, and said he was not comparing him to Wong Kar-wai, the director of "The Grandmasters" which also stars Leung.

Journalists were invited to the set of "The Great Magician" in the suburbs of Beijing on Tuesday, May 31. Leung, who plays the title character, told the media that filming had been fast and pleasant.

"Probably because we were so happy working together. Good time always passes fast," Leung was quoted by Sohu.com as saying.

This remark aroused media questions about whether he was hinting at the lengthy process of "The Grandmasters", which Leung has been involved with for years but has yet to come out.

Leung said he was not making comparisons between Yee and Wong. The latter's 2000 film, "In the Mood for Love", earned Leung a best actor award at the Cannes Film Festival.

"I'm just saying that 'The Great Magician' is such a big movie, which will contain lots of special effects. I thought shooting would take at least half a year, but Derek made it in just two or three months," said Leung.

"The Great Magician" will soon wrap up filming, and is slated for a New Year's release.

Tony Leung Celebrates His 49th Birthday

(http://picroda.jphip.com/manlove/jphip00766.jpg)

Yesterday was Tony's 49th birthday. Known for his laid-back personality, he celebrated his birthday with his wife Carina Lau the night before on the 26th. His management company Jet Tone posted photos of his birthday celebration online to share with everyone.

During the past year, Tony has been busy filming back-to-back projects in China, including Wong Kar Wai's The Grandmaster and Derek Yee's The Great Magician. He looked very tired during the press conference for 'Magician' a few weeks back. Now that he's returned to Hong Kong, he seems better rested. His face was full of smiles during his birthday dinner, no doubt because he was accompanied by his wife. He even looked content staring at his birthday cake. In previous years, fans from Korea and Japan would come to Hong Kong to celebrate his big day with him. This year was no exception, as fans gathered together to celebrate by having dinner with him and presenting him with gifts.

According to sources, the filming for the 'Grandmaster' has yet to be completed. Tony was asked what the schedule was like for filming, as well as when he has to return to work. He indicates that he hasn't received any further instructions from Wong Kar Wai. With free time on his hands, he continues to leisurely spend his time with Carina. Carina wished him a happy birthday on her microblog, using the term 'Master' to address him. "Master, happy birthday to you!" Good friend Kenny Bee also sent wishes to the best actor, saying "We'll drink to tea instead of wine today. To good health and happiness!" Christine Ng also sent her greetings on Weibo, saying, "Carina, is it your husband's birthday today? I wish Mr. Leung a happy birthday, good health and a blissful marriage. Enjoy your time together!"

"The Grandmasters" trailer reunites Wong Kar-wai and Tony Leung
Check out the first trailer for Wong Kar-wai's long-awaited film, "The Grandmasters", starring Tony Leung Chiu-wai as the martial-arts legend Yip Man.

(http://img339.imageshack.us/img339/2634/4220xtylntony.jpg)

Leung's character, a master of the Wing Chun style of martial arts, was the real-life mentor of kung-fu and Hollywood legend Bruce Lee. The trailer shows the master applying his lose-or-win fighting logic by defeating a mob on a raining night.

Leung is the only leading actor to appear in the trailer, although the film's cast also includes Zhang Ziyi, Song Hye-kyo, Chang Chen and Zhao Benshan.

"The Grandmasters" is slated for release in December, eight years after Wong Kar-wai first began planning the film.

The Tony Leung Chiu Wai, Lau Ching Wan and Zhou Xun starred Emperor Motion Picture GREAT MAGICIAN (DAI MOR SHOOK SI) earlier unveiled the first "magic" themed trailer. Leung Chiu Wai not only displayed his Best Actor acting abilities but also magic. Reportedly the film had no less than 50 magic tricks, thus the trailer was only the tip of the iceberg.

The Bona film industry, Emperor Motion Picture co-release, Derek Yee Tung Sing directed, Leung Chiu Wai, Lau Ching Wan and Zhou Xun's holiday giant production GREAT MAGICIAN's first "magic" themed trailer had Leung Chiu Wai's agile performance. Wai Jai's pair of electric eyes also hid a secret in the film. Director Yee Tung Sing said that Wai Jai's magic performance would be almost half the film. He not only was a natural born actor but also a natural born magician. As someone who has never been in touch with magic before the shoot, in THE GREAT MAGICIAN he did not look like an amateur at all.

Aside from Leung Chiu Wai's performance in the trailer, Lau Ching Wan and Zhou Xun's appearance also had quite a presence. Lau Ching Wan's eyes were full of the evil warlord's nature. Zhou Xun as a woman of an acrobat family appeared heavy and at ease. Her looks were unusually reserved.

With the student's various strange questions, the trio often answered with humor. When asked how they would face the upcoming November 11 2011 "bachelor festival", Lau Ching Wan said, "If you like someone you should dare to say it, if you have a dream you have to dare to chase it!"

Ching Wan said that becoming an actor was hard for him to imagine. He said, "When I was little I dreamt about all kinds of characters. When I saw astronauts I wanted to become an astronaut, when I saw a scientist I wanted to become a scientist. Becoming an actor was somewhat surprising to me. Although in the first few years the acting was very rotten, as long as you are willing to work hard you definitely will reap the rewards." He even joked that back then he watched many Tony Leung Chiu Wai's film to "learn from" him. When lonely, Wai Jai enjoyed being alone while Ching Wan loved walking his dog. When Wai Jai was asked whether she would fall for his co-star, Wai Jai calmly answered, "As soon as the movie is done I have to come out. Nothing is absolutely though, more or less. Think about it!"

Yan Ni gets into bubble trouble

(http://i.imgbox.com/aatm23En.jpg)

Tony Leung Chiu Wai, Lau Ching Wan, Zhou Xun and Yan Ni starred in THE GREAT MAGICIAN (DAI MOR SHOOK SI). The film in a humorous way stated that as long as you believe and persist, dreams could come true. In a movie shoot scene, Ching Wan's third concubine Yan Ni was in a bubble bath. Ching Wan directed for the first in the film.

At the director's chair Ching Wan had the director's power in the film. When asked when he would direct, Ching Wan humbly said that he did not have the talent for it. On the set, Yan Ni had a bubble bath scene. In the film a guy also took advantage of her in the bubble bath and her husband Ching Wan was steaming. Early in the shoot preparation in order to create the bubble effect the crew used a lot of soap. Yet because they used too much, Yan Ni almost drowned in the bubbles. Her call for help made the crew laugh as they rushed to save her from the bubbles. Ching Wan did not know whether to laugh or to cry. "THE GREAT MAGICIAN's set truly has crouching tiger hidden dragon, even the crew knew magic. I sat further away and saw more and more bubbles, in a flash they covered her."

Director Derek Yee Tung Sing two nights ago led Tony Leung Chiu Wai, Lau Ching Wan and Zhou Xun to the Beijing premiere of THE GREAT MAGICIAN (DAI MOR SHOOK SI). At the premiere, Tsui Hark, Soi Cheang Po Shui, Andrew Lin Hoi and Terence Yin (Wan Chi Wai) came in support. Over the two hours, over 1,000 viewers laughed from the beginning to the end. After watching they all praised this film was truly for the entire family.

After the premiere, over 1,000 viewers from the community expressed their satisfaction as they often laughed and applauded; Some even counted that they laughed every three minutes or so. Viewers thought that GREAT on the foundation of entertainment would even be able to remain cultured without being rotten; Wai Jai's sorrowful mystery matched his Great Magician identity that was very handsome and humorous; Ching Wan as the villain warlord was extremely cute; Zhou Xun's performance was also very funny.

Lau Ching Wan gets lucky but still complains

(http://i.imgbox.com/aado7c6S.jpg)
(http://i.imgbox.com/aafDxqhN.jpg)

THE GREAT MAGICIAN (DAI MOR SHOOK SI) yesterday held a press conference in Beijing. Director Derek Yee Tung Sing and the cast including Tony Leung Chiu Wai, Lau Ching Wan, Zhou Xun, Yan Ni and others attended. Lau Ching Wan pointed out that in the film Leung Chiu Wai and Zhou Xun hit him and even forced him to recite a Putonghua tongue twister. Yee Tung Sing denied that and said that in the film he already put Lau Ching Wan in a romance with Zhou Xun, which was already considered a joy for him. He even arranged seven wives for him. Yet he never would have guessed that he still had complaints. Next time he would arrange seven men for him.

Leung Chiu Wai also said that his image in the film was too serious, thus he was extremely envious and Yan Nai and Wu Gang's comedic performances. Yee Tung Sing joked that Wai Jai in the film was responsible for being handsome with infinite charm. Yet Wai Jai was very glad to work with Yee Tung Sing and so many excellent actors. In addition it was a very happy comedy that left many beautiful memories in his life. In the future when he will recall this production he will laugh. Wai Jai even asked the director to save a spot for him in the sequel. Zhou Xun also stated that she was very honored to be able to work with two Best Actors and thanked the director for giving her the opportunity.

Wai Jai has been working on Wong Kar Wai's THE GRANDMASTERS (YUT DOI JUNG SI) for over two years. For the character Wai Jai has given a lot and was even injured on the production. His wife Carina Lau Ka Ling's heart could not have ached more as she blamed Wong Kar Wai. Wai Jai yesterday admitted that he would not work with Wong Kar Wai again for awhile. THE GREAT MAGICIAN director Yee Tung Sing revealed that Wai Jai once said that he would make five more movies then retire, but Wai Jai denied that.  "I hope that my entire life is in acting, to have work at every stage." Wai Jai said that he would like more chances to make comedies. As soon as he said that people were reminded that he did not want to work with Wong Kar Wai who rarely made comedy films. He said, "I just finished Wong Kar Wai's movie, both of us are very tired and need a long time to recover. Maybe it will be a long, long while before we work together again. No one should be too concerned about me working with him, for now we wouldn't."

Cecilia Cheung Pak Chi who Yee Tung Sing made into a star recently has been poison at the box office. Yee Tung Sing spoke on her behalf and hoped that the media would not treat this matter as a joke. He thought that Pak Chi should have someone around her to tell her the truth. "I don't know why she was in such a hurry to take so many roles, but I understand that she alone has to feed her entire family. Her poor box office doesn't mean that she doesn't know how to act. I don't dare to confirm that I will work with her again or not though."

Wong Kar Wai's martial arts biopic "The Grandmasters" is set for release on December 18, Sina Entertainment reports.

The movie is based on the life story of Wing Chun grandmaster Yip Man, the legendary martial arts master who trained Bruce Lee.

Wong's frequent collaborator Tony Leung stars in the film as Yip man. The cast also includes Zhang Ziyi playing a Baguazhang master, Hye-gyo Song, Zhang Zhen and Zhao Benshan.

The film has taken a great deal of time to finish, as is often the case with Wong Kar Wai films. Knowing Wong Kar Wai's impressionistic storytelling style, fans expect stunning fight choreography.

After the release date was announced, the official microblog of "The Grandmasters" initiated a competition which will give out 1218 exquisite posters to fans.

Tony Leung to star in '1905'
HK thesp has first lead role in a Japanese pic

By MARK SCHILLING

TOKYO -- Hong Kong star Tony Leung Chiu-Wai has boarded helmer Kiyoshi Kurosawa's period drama "1905."
In his first lead role in a Japanese pic, Leung will co-star with Shota Matsuda and Atsuko Maeda, formerly of the pop group AKB48.

Set in 1905 in Yokohama, the pic features Leung as a Chinese moneylender and Matsuda as a Japanese nationalist on the trail of five Chinese revolutionaries. Leung wants to collect from them while Matsuda wants to get them out of the country. Maeda plays a girl who cooks and cares for Leung's character in Japan.

Pic will be produced by Hiroko Shinohara of Tokyo-based Premom H. Shooting will start in November for a fall 2013 release.

Kurosawa is best known internationally for his J Horror pics. He also successfully moved into family drama with "Tokyo Sonata," winner of the Cannes Un Certain Regard Special Jury Prize in 2008. His most recent project, the five-part TV drama "Penance" made for the Wowow channel, screened at the Venice Film Festival this month in a condensed version.

Sino-Japan Relations Worsen - Tony Leung Suffers Backlash

(http://i.imgbox.com/abrWw4CE.jpg)

After announcing his role in the new movie 1905 by Japanese director Kurosawa Kiyoshi, Tony Leung has been receiving backlash from netizens for taking part in the project. The movie will start filming in Japan in November and is expected to complete filming by January. The film is scheduled for release in the fall of next year. However, with the ongoing tension between Japan and China over the Senkaku/Diaoyu Islands, many people have expressed their disappointment in Tony over his participation in the movie.

Many netizens have laid the blame on Tony: "First he doesn't lack money. Secondly he doesn't lack good scripts. What he lacks is a backbone and his patriotic pride. It's really disappointing." Another netizen left a message, "Announcing this project at such a sensitive time? Do you know what you're doing?" Others have urged Tony to follow Li Bing Bing's example [by declining to promote her film in Japan].

While Tony hasn't posted any new messages on Weibo, there has been thousands of comments discussing the issue. Many netizens have voiced their support for him, saying that the film has been in talks for a while and it just so happens the production is starting at this time. They don't think people should place the blame on Tony.

Meanwhile, Mainland singer Sun Nan was suppose to attend a concert for the '40th Anniversary of the Normalization of Diplomatic Relations Between Japan and China'. However, yesterday it was announced that he has cancelled his plans to visit Japan. Sun Nan is the latest celebrity to withdraw his activities in Japan following Li Bing Bing. Their actions seem to show their dissatisfaction with how Japan has been handling the dispute.

As for the concert happening this month on the 25th at the National Centre for the Performing Arts in Beijing, it has been postponed indefinitely. The concert was originally meant to celebrate the 40th anniversary of the Sino-Japan diplomatic relations and Japanese singer Tanimura Shinji was scheduled to perform at the event. According to his management company, they have already been in contact with the event organizers. There is currently no date in mind to reschedule the concert.

Carina Lau: Tony Leung to Put Film On Hold

When asked whether she's aware of the backlash Tony has received from netizens, Carina responds, "Of course! But it seems like the film was in the works since 2009. The film has been pushed back until now because he hasn't had time in his schedule." With the escalating tension between Japan and China, will he consider stepping down from the project? "I think it will be postponed indefinitely."

Carina believes that reasonable people would not place the blame on the director or the actors. As for netizens calling Tony a 'Han Traitor' and requesting he apologizes? Carina angrily says, "Is that really necessary? I hope people will view the issue more rationally." Tony's management company Jet Tone has issued a statement saying the discussions for the film began back in 2009. However, Tony has not seen the script yet and has not officially signed onto the project.

Taking over 10 years to produce, the Wong Kar Wai directed THE GRANDMASTERS (YUT DOI JUNG SI) was released on December 18. Recently videos of the film have been unveiled one after another. Yesterday a 17 minute long ROAD TO THE GRANDMASTERS was released, as Wong Kar Wai described this epic kung fu film THE GRANDMASTERS' journey.

 THE ROAD TO THE GRANDMASTERS not only had Wong Kar Wai's film process descriptions but also many shots that would break fans' hearts -- the training of Tony Leung Chiu Wai, Zhang Ziyi and Chang Chen.

 Normally looking frail as a bookworm, Wai Jai in the video jumped rope and practiced with wooden stacks. He even sparred with the stunt team. Once breaking his arm during practice, Wai Jai truly gave his all in his training. The Best Actor absolutely did not just rely on looks and action poses for a pass because director Wong Kar Wai asked all actors to "get inside the characters' bones". Aside from Wai Jai, Zhang Ziyi during her practice screamed from the split that the master asked her to perform. Chang Chen screamed in pain from stretching with the master. For 3 actors, will power was the greatest training.

 Wong Kar Wai in the video revealed that the idea of making THE GRANDMASTERS started in 1996 when he was working on HAPPY TOGETHER (CHUN GUONG JA SIT) in Argentina. He saw a Bruce Lee cover on a local magazine and felt that this superstar's influence on the world. Yet because the Bruce Lee story has already made many times, he wanted to explore Bruce Lee's master Ip Man more and how he turned Bruce Lee into a legendary figure.

 In the first 3 years of the film's preparation, Wong Kar Wai visited with over 100 different martial art masters. The video mentioned that and how some of the martial art masters have now passed away and were unable to watch THE GRANDMASTERS in its entirety; during the process Wong Kar Wai was determined to bring back an era from one person and one street.

Quote
Tony Leung Chiu Wai spent the New Year with a group of buddies like Berg Ng Ting Yip, Lui Fong, Alex To Tak Wai and Kenny Bee (Chung Chun To). Lui Fong posted their group photo online. Wai Jai looked funny and a little drunk but very happy. To Wai Jai, having real friends in life was indeed important. At this men's gathering, none of their other halves appeared.

Tony lol only he can pull shit off like this
(http://i.imgbox.com/acqHXmRQ.jpg)

The Wong Kar Wai directed, Tony Leung Chiu Wai starred THE GRANDMASTERS (YUT DOI JUNG SI) after 14 years from planning to production finally announced its completion as it will be released tomorrow. A much more relaxed Wai Jai yesterday attended a Beijing press conference. The 3 year production period made him thoroughly suffer, no wonder he was somewhat in disbelief that it has already been completed. Zhang Ziyi even described the production process as "getting on a pirate ship", as she decided to never make another kung fu film. Film critics had more praises than criticism, some even described THE GRANDMASTERS as along the same vein as ASHES OF TIME (DUNG CHE SAI DUK). When Ip Man moved his Chinese suit to change into a suit, he was IN THE MOOD FOR LOVE (FA YEUNG NIN WA)'s Chow Mo Wan possessed.

 THE GRANDMASTERS will be released in the Mainland tomorrow. Wong Kar Wai yesterday led Leung Chiu Wai, Zhang Ziyi, Chang Chen and others to the Beijing press conference. Song Hye-Kyo who was rumored to be upset at Wong Kar Wai's schedule was absent.

《娱乐》王家卫叹《一代宗师》"此情不再" 梁朝伟与章子怡惺惺相惜 (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W9TO7YdCVjI#ws)

 Some film critics after watching the film wrote aside from the perfect visuals, the poetic expression of the story was along the same vein as ASHES OF TIME. When Ip Man removed his Chinese suit to put on another suit, he was actually "Chow Mo Wan possessed".

 The 50 year old Wai Jai talked about the 3 year long production. "Ultimately I didn't start practicing kung fu until I was 47. I broke my arm twice, each time I needed several months to recover and wasted the fruits of my previous training. Wasn't that very painful?" The earliest released rainy night fight scene was shocking visually, behind it Wai Jai actually suffered. "After 30 over night shoots, I told Wong Kar Wai director I am done, I can't take anymore; the director said fine fine fine, just like that. Finally we shot for another week, after which I thought I had pneumonia. I actually had bronchitis and lay in bed for 5 days. For half a year I worked at night for a long time. After the wrap I needed to adjust. I went to bed at midnight and got up at 4 or 5AM. I went running before the sun came out. (Carina) Lau Ka Ling asked where I was going, during that period my body was truly very tired."

 Wai Jai admitted that at first he was somewhat in disbelief that the film has wrapped. "On the day of the wrap I thought I would be especially excited, when the director said 'Leung Chiu Wai's final shot'. After the shoot I wasn't too happy, maybe I felt that later I still had work like voice work and promotions. I was somewhat in disbelief still. In my experience, we could have had two wrap banquets and still go back to shoot. 3 days later I could receive a call, 'A scene could actually be even better, come back and fix it', the possibility still exists." He said that after returning to Hong Kong and settling for four or five days, he was much more relaxed. "Actually the pressure was tremendous all along, I was very tensed. Wong Kar Wai on the set was very relaxed, he was never in a hurry. We were the ones who were." Donnie Yen Chi Tan's IP MAN will soon make its third installment. THE GRANDMASTERS was often made fun of as taking too long to make. Wai Jai said, "When you have fried chicken you still have to wait! The two movies are different. We shot for so long because we needed such a long time to be able to achieve it, so I don't have anything to say." He said that he needed to rest and would not make a movie for now.

 Zhang Ziyi played the Eight Diagram palm master, she said that two nights ago after watching the film in its completed form for the first time and did not sleep all night. "Due to health and character consideration, I decided from now on I would not make another kung fu film. I am older, during training this time I realized I had many old wounds. My body was in a state of overload." Zhang Ziyi joked that the production process was like "getting on a pirate ship". "After 3 years of training and being with the character, I sensed the character's troubled fate".

 Wong Kar Wai was often asked why it took so long. He said, "With such good actors supporting me, if I have the time I am willing to keep shooting. Although I was reluctant to part with it, everyone has to see it. THE GRANDMASTERS displays the beauty of the Chinese people."

 Max Zhang Jun had a train station fight scene with Zhang Ziyi. Viewers of test screenings praised it as the bright spot of the entire film and a display of power. Zhang Jun said, "The pressure was enormous on this film, the fighting was real unlike before. Every school and every style were very clear cut."

 Wong Kar Wai was known for taking his time to be concise. Back then when he spent 5 years to complete 2046 it was already classic, no one expected that THE GRANDMASTERS from planning to official release would take 14 years. At first Wong Kar Wai and Jeff Lau Chun Wai discussed THE GRANDMASTERS story, in 2001 the script was officially registered, in 2003 the film announced its official production. For ten years most of the time only the buzz of the production could be heard. In 2008 Raymond Wong Pak Ming made IP MAN with Donnie Yen Chi Tan, leading to a "twin incident".

 IP Man was released and became a hit, even followed the momentum with a sequel. However Wong Kar Wai insisted on completing his research before beginning production and asked Leung Chiu Wai, Zhang Ziyi, Chang Chen to study martial art. In July 2009, Wai Jai while sparring suffered a bone crack, during the shoot he even had a fracture. The film 3 years ago began to heat up in its production, but the rainy night fight scene in the trailer alone took 30 nights, gave Wai Jai bronchitis and made him sick for 5 days after the shoot. The film even had two wrap banquets, in the end Wai Jai, Zhang Ziyi and others were called back to continue additional shoots. Thus before the film is released, Wai Jai still does not believe it truly has wrapped up production.

 Playing Leung Chiu Wai's wife, Korean star Song Hye-Kyo is working on a Korean television series in Korea and thus was absent. However she still sent a video for the premiere.

 In the video she apologized for being unable to attend the premiere and revealed that she was a fan of Director Wong. She said, "Spending 3 years to work on THE GRANDMASTERS with Director Wong Kar Wai, it has been a very happy period of time for me. It includes working with excellent actors, I have learned a lot, gained valuable experience. I have always been the director's fan. Although my character this time isn't very key, being able to participate in the director's film is already a honor for me."

 Meanwhile, the Wong Jing and Manfred Wong (Man Jun) produced, Daniel Chan Yee Heng directed YOUNG AND DANGEROUS RELOADED (GOO WAT JAI: GONG WU SUN DIT JUI) will be released on the same day as THE GRANDMASTERS. Yesterday Wong Jing took a jab online at Wong Kar Wai for spending 7 years to finally complete this film. "Congratulations Brother Wong Kar Wai for finally finishing this film that I too really want to see. The big film that the Cannes Best Director spent 7 years, over 400 units and 300 million on! However for its Hong Kong promotion, does it need to compare itself to a film that new director Chan Yee Heng spent a month and a half, 20 some units and several millions to make? Yee Heng has the chance to compete with Wong Kar Wai in the slot, it is his honor! However nothing is certain at the box office, we shall wait and see!"

Tony Leung Chiu Wai, Zhang Ziyi, Chang Chen and Max Zhang Jun yesterday continued to promote the film THE GRANDMASTERS (YUT DOI JUNG SI) in Beijing. Today the team will return to Hong Kong for the premiere. Zhang Yimou who was in Beijing also showed his support for THE GRANDMASTERS and met with Wong Kar Wai, Zhang Ziyi, and Chen Daoming after the premiere for a brief chat and photos. Wai Jai yesterday revealed after the premiere that his heart ached the most over many "missing" scenes.

 Yesterday Wai Jai, Zhang Ziyi, Chang Chen and Zhang Jun all wore sunglasses for their interview. They said that they wanted to salute the director. Wong Kar Wai revealed that the film's complete version was 4 hours, finally he cut it down to a 130 minute version. For the completeness of the story he had to make choices and cut many actors' scenes.

 Wai Jai had the most screen time but also had the most scenes removed. Suffering the most "wounds" from editing, he said that every time after watching Wong Kar Wai's movies he felt the same way as he questioned where did his scenes go? Every time he had to watch the film two or three more times before he was able to get into it. Then he would think where did Zhang Ziyi and Xiao Shenyang's scenes went? Why would scenes that had finished voice work were go missing? Wai Jai admitted that he would remember these few years for a lifetime, aside from learning something new he also created a new character. In addition he has been a kung fu fans since childhood, he never imagined that he would study kung fu in his 40s. However he still enjoyed it and thought it was a lot of fun. He said that he has never been so positive and optimistic in a Wong Kar Wai movie, as he was full of positive energy.

 In the same manner, Zhang Ziyi said that she thought a scene in which she expressed her inner loneliness was very sad but very powerful would be kept. Her hope finally died when the end credit came out, as it was truly removed; however, she understood that with only 2 hours and 10 minutes, Wong Kar Wai indeed had a hard time with the decision. As an actor she like the audience had no idea how Wong Kar Wai's ending would be until the end.

 Zhang Ziyi also appeared on a Mainland television program. She demonstrated her well practiced Eight Diagram palm and won thunderous applause from the audience. She recalled that she had no complaint despite the trainer's hellish training. Everyone was concerned with her marriage, Zhang Ziyi admitted that she will definitely wed and even revealed that her best dish was egg and tomato.

[2013.01.09] TONY LEUNG CHIU WAI MAKES DONATION TO BUDDHIST CONSTRUCTION

Wong Kar Wai last night led Tony Leung Chiu Wai, Zhang Ziyi, Chang Chen, Max Zhang Jun and others to THE GRNADMASTERS (YUT DOI JUNG SI) Hong Kong premiere. Wai Jai and Zhang Jun both had their wives Carina Lau Ka Ling and Ada Choi Siu Fun in tow. Wong Kar Wai who has always appeared with sunglasses during the drum ceremony rarely removed them perhaps due to confetti and revealed his eyes.

 THE GRANDMASTERS was accused of resembling IN THE MOOD FOR LOVE (FA YEUNG NIN WA). Wong Kar Wai explained that he already had the idea for the film as early as 1989, even earlier than MOOD. "The preparation took years because I had to visit seven or eight provinces for martial art masters." Zhang Ziyi did not conduct any interview. Song Hye-Kyo was in Korea but sent a video.

 Wai Jai broke his arm twice for this film. A magazine reported that he donated 400,000 yuan RMB to construct a 12 meter tall Goddess of Mercy statue in Jiangsu. He said, "Ka Ling has always donated to Buddhist statue constructions. Charity should follow the heart and not announced, but it has nothing to do with praying for his safety. I have been injured more from skiing than from movie shoots." Ka Ling reportedly donated a romance tree with their names on it in Suzhou. Wai Jai said, "That's interesting, I don't know too much about it." Wai Jai did not believe that Song Hye-Kyo was upset that her role was reduced. "Wong Kar Wai wouldn't be at odds with anyone, I too had my scenes cut." He described after three years in production the final half a month exhausted him thoroughly, as hard as the last 10 minutes of a marathon. As for Donnie Yen Chi Tan stating that he would watch THE GRANDMASTERS, Wai Jai said, "I am not afraid of comparison, I have my own interpretation angle."

 The 5 month pregnant Choi Siu Fun wore 4 inch high heels to support her husband. Earlier she also had a miscarriage. Zhang Jun said, "Now it's fine, she can jump. She is too energetic." In the film his fight scene with Zhang Ziyi was praised. Zhang Jun said that when he watched it he too was very pleasantly surprised.

[2013.01.10] THE GRANDMASTERS OPENS WITH 30 MILLION YUAN

独家对话《一代宗师》主演梁朝伟 (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N-Uc7PqmrWs#)

Wong Kar Wai's THE GRANDMASTERS (YUT DOI JUNG SI) two days ago was released in the Mainland and made 30 million yuan RMB, the best Mainland box office for a Wong Kar Wai film. Back then 2046's total box office was only 30 million yuan.

 THE GRANDMASTERS two days ago officially opened in the Mainland, the first day box office was 30 million yuan RMB. It was the best Mainland box office performance for a Wong Kar Wai film. In 2004 2046's Mainland cumulative box office was only 30 million. In 2007 MY BLUEBERRY NIGHTS after a week only made 10 millon yuan.

 THE GRANDMASTERS had completion from LOST IN THAILAND, CZ12 (SUP YI SUN CHIU) and other hit films, but because they have been in release for some time THE GRANDMASTERS has an advantage. On its opening day it occupied 38% of the national showings and opened with 30 million yuan; however, its competition will only grow stronger with SKYFALL on the way.

[2013.01.13] SONG HYE-KYO SLAPS TONY LEUNG CHIU WAI

Tony Leung Chiu Wai and Song Hye-Kyo's intimate scene is left in the cutting room floor
(http://i.imgbox.com/acpOlimV.jpg)

Wong Kar Wai's THE GRANDMASTERS (YUT DOI JUNG SI) in Hong Kong after two days in release accumulated HK$2.82 million at the box office (exclusing late shows). With stronger and stronger momentum it pulls away from the same week release, Wong Jing's YOUNG AND DANGEROUS: RELOADED (GOO WAT JAI: GONG WU SUN DIT JUI); the latter accumulated only HK$860,000 over two days.

 Wong Kar Wai initially cut THE GRANDMASTERS into a 4 hour edition. Due to running time restriction he cut it down to the current release of 130 minutes; many scenes were "missing". Yesterday the film company distributed the second production special, in the 3 minute and 41 second content many removed scenes reappeared. Wai Jai personally explained Ip Man and talked about his kung fu training.

 In Leung Chiu Wai's eyes Ip Man was mild mannered and elegant, he did not resemble a kung fu person; he rose and fell and in the end he was able to calmly be himself. Wong Kar Wai hoped that Wai Jai's Ip Man performance would be a mix of Ip Man and Bruce Lee. He tried to combine them for the effect. Wai Jai said that Ip Man was enjoyed kung fu as much as Bruce Lee but normally he was so mild mannered that no one knew he could fight.

 When he explored the character, he thought that the character appearance could be expressed through technique. Yet if he did not understand the inside of the character he had no way to express its aura, which was not something that could be achieved over night; this his long term training was necessary. He broke his arm twice, the first time was a hair line fracture, the second time was already as severe as saw tooth; everything he did was for THE GRANDMASTERS.

 In the production special the removed scenes included Wai Jai and Song Hye-Kyo's sweet romantic couple scene, Wai Jai sweetly smiled with Sister Kyo in his arms. When the Japanese military arrived, they got into a struggle and Sister Kyo slapped him. Chang Chen in the release did not face Wai Jai. His appearance with a razor to fight Wai Jai was also unveiled. The production special even uncovered that Ip Man once visited Master Gong Er in the Northeast. Wai Jai in the drifting snow passed through the plum blossom courtyard, where they encountered each other again.

 THE GRANDMASTERS decoding even had Julian Cheung Chi Lam as two characters, not only the Chinese Opera actor but also Zhang Ziyi's fiance. In this scene he only made an appearance in a flash.

Yesterday Tony Leung Chiu Wai, Yuen Woo Ping, and Lau Ka Yung attended the Hong Kong University "Who Is THE GRANDMASTERS film forum". The 1000 seats were filled in two hours, with 600 people waiting outside. When Wai Jai appeared the crowd roared and gave him a standing ovation.

 Wai Jai attended an university forum for the first time. When asked whether the film will have a sequel due to good word of mouth? He said, "No, I am not afraid of 3 more years in production. Time isn't a problem, I just want to try something else to have a sense of freshness." Reportedly the Berlin Film Festival screening will be an extended version, Wai Jai asked Wong Kar Wai to confirm. He said that another version would not be fair to the audience, he might edit out some scenes that foreigners would not understand. He would not demand to add back his removed scenes as he thought that as it is now the movie is rather entertaining.

 Reportedly he was upset at the size of the role and he was at odds with Wong Kar Wai. Wai Jai laughed and said, "Hahaha, you are killing me, am I this type of person? I have been friends with Wong Kar Wai for so many years that I wouldn't mind. I am 50 years old, I have everything, what else do I want? Instead I have to learn to give, to do charity work on my free time, help those who aren't as fortunate. I took two years off before, life was brilliant. When I woke up I would drink with friends until I fell asleep. With sustenance and responsibility, life would healthier." After promoting in Korea and the U.S., he will take two months off before deciding on his charity work. He was willing to do charity work with his wife Carina Lau Ka Ling as well.

 Action director Yuen Woo Ping praised Wai Jai's kung fu film prowess. He should not be compared to Donnie yen Chi Tan, as their styles and specialties were different. Was Chi Tan better? He said, "Wai Jai is great too, they are great in different ways. Wai Jai's action sense is great, he is just being humble." After the two hour forum ended, they went to Mongkok for audience appreciation and celebrated with a lion dance.

[2013.02.02] TONY LEUNG CHIU WAI MAKES MOVIES FOR INTEREST

(http://i.imgbox.com/adqlKq6s.jpg)

The film THE GRANDMASTERS (YUT DOI JUNG SI) broke HK$20 million in Hong Kong and closed in on 300 million RMB in the Mainland. Tony Leung Chiu Wai and Max Zhang Jun two nights ago attended a celebration. Wai Jai was happy for director Wong Kar Wai who finally made a movie that made money. Wai Jai said, "I hope that he would have a hit film that was both a critical and commercial success so he could answer to investors."

 Wai Jai was not saying that every Wong Kar Wai film lost money. They did not lose money elsewhere, but they never performed well at home; he would neither ask nor look forward to Wong Kar Wai making more commercial films.

(http://i.imgbox.com/abvopbwp.jpg)

 The GRNADMASTERS was not released in time for this year's Hong Kong Film Awards so Wai Jai was unable to receive a Best Actor nomination. Wai Jai did not feel any regret. "It doesn't matter, not because I have won enough but because now my work attitude is different. I am making movie because I enjoy the production process, not for awards." Next year he, Donnie yen Chi Tan and Anthony Wong Chau Sun, three actors who played Ip Man, might compete for the Hong Kong Film Award Best Actor. Wai Jai said, "It doesn't matter. (Are you confident that you will defeat them?) I have thought about it."

 Zhang Jun two nights ago returned from Shanghai, put his daughter at home and rushed over. He said that his wife Ada Choi Siu Fun was still working in the Mainland. After this job she would stop working to focus on her pregnancy. "She likes to work, I can't stop her. However every time she works she asks her doctor for permission, she wouldn't be irresponsible." He already knew the baby's sex and expected date of birth but he did not want to reveal them yet. Will he stop after this child? Zhang Jun said yes. Did that mean that this would be a son? He smiled and said, "I haven't said it yet. I only thought two were enough, the children would have a companion." Zhang Jun admitted that after THE GRANDMASTERS he had a lot more work, thus he had to thank Wong Kar Wai.

[2013.02.08] AN AILING TONY LEUNG CHIU WAI AND AN EXHAUSTED ZHANG ZIYI TOUGH OUT THE GRANDMASTERS BERLIN PROMOTION

(http://i.imgbox.com/acr9y7eU.jpg)
(http://i.imgbox.com/acpCObv5.jpg)

The 63rd Berlin Film Festival officially opened yesterday. Although among the 19 films that compete for the highest honor Golden Bear prize, none is Chinese film; luckily the Wong Kar wai directed, Tony Leung Chiu Wai and Zhang Ziyi starred THE GRANDMASTERS (YUT DOI JUNG SI) is the opening film. Big Director Wong is even the jury chair. Yesterday morning he led American actor Tim Robbins and the jury to meet the media. In the afternoon he host THE GRANDMASTERS press conference.

 Although THE GRANDMASTERS has been in release in China, Hong Kong and Taiwan for a long time and its Mainland box office even exceeded 290 million yuan RMB for a new Wong Kar Wai personal record, to Berlin film viewers it is still full of mystery. The premiere ticket was hard to come by, the remaining 3 shows have already sold out in 1 hour.

 In order to take care of the overseas (especially European) market needs, Wong Kar Wai earlier stayed in the Bangkok editing room to remove 13 minutes from THE GRANDMASTERS' original 130 minutes to the less than 2 hour International Version. Reportedly the story structure also was adjusted slightly. "The pace is even more intense and the feeling is even more mature."

 Actually, Wong Kar Wai has a deep relationship with the Berlin Film Festival. The 1991 DAYS OF BEING WILD (AH FEI JING JUEN) and the 1996 FALLEN ANGELS (DOR LOK TIN SI) both participated in the festival and won European and American film critic word of mouth. This year he is invited to be the jury chair. Yesterday on the eve of the opening ceremony Wong Kar Wai led 6 jury members including 1942's star Tim Robbins, Oscar Best Foreign Film IN A BETTER WORLD's Danish director Susanne Beir, Venice Silver Lion prize winning Iranian director Shirin Neshat and others to meet the media and kicked off the 11 day long film festival.

 Another with a Berlin connection was Zhang Ziyi. Her films THE ROAD HOME, HERO and FOREVER ENTHRALLED appeared there. Two days ago THE GRANDMASTERS just completed its Paris promotion and headed to Berlin at night. Tomorrow will be Zhang Ziyi's 34th birthday. 4 years ago she celebrated her birthday in Berlin.

 The international film festival frequent guest Tony Leung Chiu Wai was ailing when he met up with Zhang Ziyi in Paris, then they walked the red carpet in Berlin. Luckily his mother tag along, even though he was overseas for this Lunar New Year he would not feel too bad.

on Leslie:  "In front of the camera he was a very professional actor. Behind it he was a very sincere, very simple person. Because of movies we often communicated and met overseas for long periods, we became familiar. I don't know where Gor Gor is, my only wish is that he can be happy." (translated by hktopten )

BROTASTIC!!!

Carina Lau Ka Ling two nights ago posted online a photo of her husband Tony Leung Chiu Wai and Andy Lau Tak Wa in a sit down chat. She personally took the photo and they looked friendly and relaxed. Online curiosity was piqued and the response was overwhelming. Last night it had over 1,500 comments and over 3,000 retransmits. Some online described this as a "meeting of hunks" and looked forward to them working together again; A message asked, "What are they discussing? When will they work on another film together? Both are excellent men."
