This summer Hong Kong film finally rose again with the three Great Best Actors Chow Yun Fat, Tony Leung Ka Fai and Aaron Kwok Fu Sing starred COLD WAR 2 (HONG JIN 2). As of Monday the film accumulated HK$ 57.84 million at the box office, by this weekend it will be able to break the HK$ 61.85 million Hong Kong Chinese film box office record that YOU ARE THE APPLE OF MY EYE set 5 years ago. Kwok Fu Sing even hoped to be able to share the joy with everyone at the moment when the record will be broken.
COLD WAR 2 as of Monday became this year's Hong Kong box office champion and 4th among the Hong Kong film box office record and 5th in the Chinese film box office record. At the same time the film made 650 million yuan RMB in the Mainland. With Monday's single day take of HK$ 725,855 and an average box office of 700,000 daily, by the weekend the film will likely break the 2011 Taiwan film YOU ARE THE APPLE OF MY EYE's Hong Kong Chinese film box office record (HK$ 61,857,826) and regain the Hong Kong Chinese film box office championship since Stephen Chow Sing Chi's 2004 Hong Kong film KUNG FU HUSTLE (GONG FU).
The film company has already planned to celebrate. It has been in close contact with the directors and actors to witness the moment of Hong Kong film regaining the Hong Kong Chinese film box office championship.
Best Actor Kwok Fu Sing despite being busy with his concert rehearsal still took time to promote COLD WAR 2. "With such a great response to COLD WAR 2, the team has been very encouraged. After almost 18 days in release the box office remained great. I really want to thank Hong Kong viewers for their support of this film about Hong Kong. If it truly will be able to break the record, it is the result of the entire team and Hong Kong viewers' effort together. We should share this joy together at that time. Now I am rehearsing for the concerts night and day, I don't know what the film company has planned yet. I personally am looking forward to this record breaking moment very much."
