“Cold War 2” Commences Filming

The sequel to popular police thriller Cold War <寒戰> has finally commenced filming. Original cast members, Aaron Kwok (郭富城), Tony Leung (梁家輝) and Eddie Peng (彭于晏), Aarif Lee (李治廷), Charlie Young (楊采妮) and Chin Ka Lok (錢嘉樂) will return in the sequel. Cold War 2 will also be featuring some heavyweight additions to the cast: Chow Yun Fat (周潤發), Tony Yeung (楊寧) and Chang Kuo Chu (張國柱).

When Cold War was first released in 2012, it received rave responses – achieving box office results of nearly $5.7 million USD in Hong Kong. It also garnered nine awards at the 2013 Hong Kong Film Awards 2013, including Best Actor, Best Director, and Best Film awards). The audience loved the cast’s acting, as well as the novel storyline, which touched on the disastrous consequences of politics and in-fighting within the police force.

The film, however, ended on a cliffhanger and left the audience with several questions: for instance, who was the person manipulating all the strings behind the scenes, and where did the missing emergency vehicle disappear to? Many are hoping that Cold War 2 will finally resolve all the unanswered questions.

Excited to start filming, Aaron, Tony Leung and Eddie have already been playfully exchanging photos and banter with each other on their respective Weibo pages.

Eddie’s excitement was once again evident at the commencement ceremony recently held for Cold War 2, where he continuously greeted old friends. Eddie first embraced Tony Leung and started taking selfies with him where they both made faces and stuck their tongues out. Eddie next ran over to excitedly “reunite” with his idol, Aaron. Eddie then went up to Tony Yeung, whom he was already good friends with, and welcomed Tony Yeung with a mock gun battle. Eddie chirped, “[Tony Yeung and I] are the most handsome killers from Taiwan!”

  1. aron has aged well,why are there no such cool looking actors anymore in tvb? he would be the perfect cheung po chai.

      Anyone with talent would not want to work for TVB, given their abysmal pay, awful working conditions, and slave contracts.

      1. @anon agree that tvb isnt the best employer that exist,but that have always been the case,even when they were a powerhouse with stars like cyf,the five tigers,ekin,aron,leon,gallen,louis ko till raymond lam,its always been a bad working conditions and no dream contracts. if you talk about local hk talent,have you already seen a unknown talent from hk that become popular or have made a name for themself in mainland china? and in the hk movie industry? where are they? the new cyf or tony leung? tvb is no longer the birthplace of new superstars anymore.

        That’s because of the bad working conditions, most people don’t wish to enter the entertainment business. And those that do, lack the talent and star-power, and literally sleep their way to the top.

        TVB had tons of talent in the past, cause at the least, they were willing to invest the time and money to develop them, and TVB was renown for producing great artists, so people were willing to work for less. They were once a media company that others looked up to as an example for success, and there was little competition coming from Mainland and from other countries. When a company stops progressing, it will seize to exist, as what we are witnessing now. Give it a few more years when the middle-age and seniors aren’t here anymore. Hardly anyone would know TVB, cause the millennials and generation z don’t care to watch their productions.

      3. @anon I think there are structural changes to the landscape of the viewing audience that have added to TVB’s woes.

        For years, TVB’s bread and butter audience are what could be called “couch potatoes”. These are people whose main source of social outlet is watching the “idiot box” and would revolve their life schedule around the programs. Today, these “couch potatoes” are mostly middle-aged 8-por’s, but their taste still dictate TVB’s programming plans.

        The growing millenials and z’ers are quite different in that TV watching is not their main social outlets. They have social media and others to occupy themselves. And when they do watch TV, they are not provincial enough to limit themselves to only cantonese programs. K dramas, Cdramas are often part of their viewing menu These are the people that remain elusive to TVB’s clutch and the network knows it..
