1.20.2011 - News

Opening Jan. 28

The 1920s Eastern Western has passed 'Aftershock's' $9.8 million take.

After three months of hard work, playing Myanmar freedom fighter Aung San Suu Kyi in The Lady, our very own Michelle Yeoh could finally take a breather as filming of the biopic was wrapped up on Jan 18.

Reports from media previews of Benny Chan's Shaolin indicate that the film is quite bloody and children are recommended to be accompanied by parents. Women audibly gasped at certain scenes. Jackie Chan's humourous appearances lightened the tone in contrast. In addition, the burning of Shaolin Temple is said to not look very realistic.

The whole combo makes for a movie that will definitely kickass!
