Just Another Pandora's Box - Gillian Chung Removed From Poster

Jeff Lau and cast were caught off guard when they attended the premiere for Just Another Pandora's Box (Once Upon a Chinese Classic) and discovered that Gillian Chung and Sandra Ng's images had been removed from the poster. The explanation for Sandra's removal was due to her small role. There was no information available for Gillian's removal as the film had been previously approved for mainland distribution by SARFT. Later, Emperor explained that it asked for Gillian's image to be removed because her role was solely as a guest performance and their agreement did not allow her image to be used for advertising.

You know when the poster has that many famous faces on it, I'm not buying that excuse.

Why is Gillian still being treated so badly? This is ridiculous!

Emperor/Albert Yeung owns Gillian, so I can believe it. Maybe they want to save her for the upcoming Fantastic Water Babes.

I'll keep an eye out for updates but it sounds plausible to me.
