Hong Kong dominates Asian Film Market in Busan

NEW DELHI: This week’s films from Hong Kong at the Asian Film Market in Busan in Korea represent a variety that moves from erotica to horror to romantic comedy and 3-D blockbusters.

Distribution Workshop unveils In the Room by Singapore's Eric Khoo. Produced by Nansun Shi and starring Josie Ho, the high concept erotic drama takes place in a single hotel room with six connected stories over several decades. Also on the company's lineup are Tsui Hark's spy thriller The Taking of Tiger Mountain 3D and Derek Yee's martial arts film Sword Maste, both in post-production for 3D delivery.

Golden Network Asia pesents Live TV by new Korean directors Kim Seon-ung and Son Gwang-su. The thriller follows two guys and one girl who live-broadcast a threesome sex scene online in a seedy motel only to find themselves become the next victims of a serial killer. It is slated for its world premiere at the Busan International Film Festival.

Busan's closing film Gangster Pay Day is Star Alliance Movies’ (HK) first co-production with Sundream Motion Pictures. Starring Anthony Wong and Charlene Choi, the action comedy is about a retired gang boss who leads a humble life but is forced to fight back to protect the woman he loves and avenge the death of a comrade. Lee Po-cheung's film is due to open on 6 November in Hong Kong.

Star Alliance is also selling Soi Cheang's SPLII in the Asia-Pacific region only. The follow up to the 2005's smash hit is top-lined by Thai action star Tony Jaa, Louis Koo and Wu Jing.  A 2015 summer release is expected.

Universe Films Distribution touts James Yuen's romantic comedy Paris Holiday, featuring Louis Koo and Amber Kuo as two broken hearts who fall in love in the most romantic city and the Benny Chan-produced Little Big Master with Miriam Yeung as a headmaster who runs a kindergarten for under-privileged children.
