That was interesting about Shu Qi. I still like her best in "So Close". She's come a long way from the days where she would just squeal her way through the movies (like some of the scenes in "Storm Riders"). :)

re: Wind Blast. How much are tickets to Beijing this time of year?

dleedlee said...

I don't know. But, for reference, Huayi Brothers raised the minimum ticket prices for tier-A cities, i.e., Beijing, Shanghai and Guangzhou, to 35 yuan when Aftershock was released back in July.

I would gladly pay 35 yuan if only I could!
