CRI: 'Shaolin' Releases First Trailer
The new film was set in the 1920s, during which time the warlords in China were fighting with each other. Besides showcasing the Shaolin kung-fu style, the film will show many modern war scenes as well. Director Benny Chan explained that "The usage of modern weapons is in a conflict with traditional kung fu. It's a terrible thing to many kung-fu masters."
Many long-anticipated scenes were included, such as the married life of Ge You and Shu Qi since they decide to start a trial marriage, and a "divorce ceremony" for Yao Chen and Sun Honglei.

RE: Midnight beating stills. Does anyone else thing these are supposed to look like the Edison Chen pix? With clothes, that is.

Ha ha, I hadn't thought of that. Of course, I suppose there's a limitation to what you can shoot at arm's length.

I had been wondering what became of Elaine Ng and her child. Now I know.

I posted briefly on her back in Sept. here and here, in Oct.

I'm sort of confused whether Jackie is paying support for her and the girl or not.

more Midnight Beating: looks like there was some general confusion about the source of the pix, or maybe it's all a publicity stunt:

I saw something similar. If they had simply watermarked the pics it would have saved them (or at least, Francis) the headache. I guess they got burned by their own cleverness.
