In commemoration of the Xinhai Revolution's 100th anniversary, Zhujiang Film Group and Guangdong Zhujiang Film Industry Media Inc.'s first film 72 HEROES (YING HUNG DIP HUET) opened nationwide on September 16.
At the press conference on the 16th, Zhujiang Film Industry Media Inc. chief Zhao Jun represented Zhujiang Film Industry and shared the experience of making this Xinhai Revolution movie along with Eric Tsang Chi Wai, Irene Wan Bik Ha, Tse Kwan Ho, Liu Kai Chi, Elanne Kong Yeuk Lam and others. At the premiere, over 2,000 viewers sold out the Zhongshan Memorial Hall and made the film the first to break 110,000 yuan at a Guangzhou premiere and surpassed AFTER SHOCK's above 70,000 yuan record.
Although the film was about the Revolution it did not lecture. The well disguised lines triggered viewers' thinking. Tse Kwan Ho played Langnan artist Poon Tat Mei. The corpse identification after the failed uprising became the entire film's emotional climax and left many viewers in tears. Zhao Jun said that this film has already accepted the 7th Chinese American Film Festival's invitation in Los Angeles at the end of October as the first film that commemorated the Xinhai Revolution 100th anniversary to attend the film festival and would hold an U.S. premiere.
