Gillian Chung cancelled all upcoming promotional activities for "Nightmare", opening Nov.25. Her agent said that Gillian was only a guest and not the leading actor so it is not really that important. "Nightmare" was originally scheduled for a Halloween release but then later postponed. Gillian was said to have been displeased with publicity photos featuring another actor that were released earlier during the Golden Roster Hundred Flowers Film Festival (GRHFF).

Wang Baoqiang stars as a fortuneteller in "Hello! Mr Tree" with Tan Zhuo.

After starring in "Blind Shaft", Wang was chosen by Feng Xiaogang, one of China's biggest directors, to play a role in "A World Without Thieves" (2003). His character was a teenage migrant worker with below-average intelligence but who has a kind heart. "I will never forget the moment I received the call from Feng," said Wang. "It was so exciting knowing that I was going to star in a film of his."

Having played so many similar roles - lovelorn, rural background, not too bright - Wang has been criticized for being a one-trick pony. "That's why I consider "Hello! Mr Tree" as my 'masterpiece' right now," said Wang. "I play a middle-aged bachelor who falls in love with a deaf girl. I am a 'grown-up' now, so I'm so glad the role has been acknowledged internationally."

Director David Wu was joined at the event by the writer of the original work, Li Xiaomin, a retired sniper, mtime.com reports. Adapted from the popular internet novel of the same name written by Li Xiaomin, the film tells the tale of how a young huntsman grows up to become a champion sniper. The film stars Peter Ho, Song Jia, Tony Leung, Mickey Ho and Guo Mingxiang. CF: 'Cold Steel' to Compete at Palm Springs

Apart from acting, Li is committed to environmental protection and charity issues. She serves as a goodwill ambassador for both the United Nations Environment Program and the World Wildlife Fund. She founded a charity called L.O.V.E in 2009, which is dedicated to various public welfare activities. Because of her charity work, the Chinese media has dubbed Li the "charity queen."
