Eric Tsang Chi Wai, Anita Yuen Wing Yi, Jacky Cheung Hok Yau, Bosco Wong Chung Chak, Tracy Ip Chui Chui and other 72 TENANTS OF PROSPERITY (72 GA JO HAT) cast and crew members two nights ago held a 38 table New Spring group visit. Director and producer Tsang Chi Wai was busy all night and host a lucky drawing to create atmosphere. 72 caught up with its competition to become the number one Hong Kong film. Chi Wai said with appreciation, "I haven't directed a movie in over a decade. In the past I would spend the Lunar New Year overseas. This year I particularly wanted to return to Hong Kong because everyday was good news. When I saw the box office cinemas were sold out I would scream 'Yeah'. Good performance proves that the audience's have sharp eyes!" Was Chi wai poking fun at competition Raymond Wong Pak Ming? He immediately denied that and said that he has already seen his ALL'S WELL ENDS WELL TOO 2010 (FA TIN HEI SI 2010). He praised it was quite an improvement from last year, at least it was not as rotten. Yet costume subjects were still at a disadvantage. 72's box office has already exceeded 20 million, Chi Wai was confident that he could break the record. Sandra Ng Kwan Yu claimed that their promotion was hypnosis, Chi Wai honestly said, "The promotion was a little 'excessive', all along it was mentioned in the same breath with Wong Pak Ming's film. We wanted to team up against foreign films. Alan (Tam Wing Lun)'s HERE COMES FORTUNE (CHOI SUN DOH) will soon be released. Now we begin to 'Wong Pak Ming" nonstop, hopefully Alan's movie can catch up to mine!"
Len len was happy to Hong Kong film on the rise again. She said, "I still haven't seen 72. I am planning to book a show to watch with friends. In the past when (Aaron) Kwok Fu Sing had movie releases we would go as a group." Would she include Lynn Xiong (Hung Doi Lam)? She played dumb and said, "Who did you say? 72 TENANTS OF PROSPERITY is truly entertaining. (Did you see Hung Doi Lam?) Please don't make my life difficult with these questions, I only know (Cheung) Chi Lam. (Do you know Doi Lam?) I of course know who she is, she is so pretty and is a model with such great skin." Reporters asked whether she has seen her during the Lunar New Year, Len Len said, "I saw many friends." In addition, Hok Yau also made an appearance in support. He was happy that the film performed well. He said that his movies would rarely land on top at the box office. As for how he would celebrate, he said that would depend on Chi Wai.
