Director Chen Kaige two days ago with actors Ge You, Wang Xueqi, Fan Bingbing and Huang Xiaoming attended the SACRIFICE media event in Shanghai. Chen Kaige praised veteran actors Ge You and Wang Xueqi. Ge You was calm about the title of the "holiday emperor".
Chen Kaige revealed that he has seen the film long ago. At the time he believed in the sincerity of the script. Yet after becoming a father he began to suspect that type of "loyalty" and considered for years before choosing a simple way to tell this story. He even praised Ge You and Wang Xueqi's acting. "Their acting seems like making soup, with a lot of ingredients that finally melt in the soup. The soup is very delicious but the original ingredients can't be seen. It is near perfection."
Ge You has three films during the holiday season and thus was called the "holiday emperor". He calmly said, "Three films appearing together has nothing to do with me at all. Actors after acting are done. Production, distribution and release are all investor's work. As for comparisons they will be definite, but in front of the public I don't know what to say, luckily all three characters are completely different." As for box office expectation, Ge You said, "1 billion is not too much, 5
billion is not too little." In the film Ge You and Huang Xiaoming had some exchanges that were accused of being homosexual. Huang Xiaoming honestly said that he did not know how to perform to achieve such a result.
