Joining actor/producer Louis KOO and first-time director NG Yuen-fai on the red carpet at Emperor Cinemas iSQUARE is member of the mega-budget sci-fi blockbuster’s cast Philip KEUNG.
Speaking to a packed audience before Warriors of Future’s screening, KOO likens the production of the epic thriller – featuring state-of-the-art CGI and Hong Kong-styled action choreography – to taking the first step of an adventure.
“The production process was arduous and challenging,” KOO said. “Yet, I believe someone has to take forward the Chinese-language sci-fi genre. Hopefully, this would open more doors for Hong Kong cinema in the future. I stand firm on involving mostly local SFX professionals on the project. We hope you like this film, and enjoy the meticulous detail we strive to deliver.”
HKIFF46 is going hybrid again with screenings and audience-engagement events in theatres and online for 17 days until 31 August.
The complete programme and screening schedule are available at HKIFF’s official website (www.hkiff.org.hk). Tickets can still be purchased through URBTIX.
