“Line Walker: The Movie” Breaks $700 Million, Francis Ng, Charmaine Sheh: “It’s Not Enough!”

Francis Ng (吳鎮宇), Charmaine Sheh (佘詩曼), Nick Cheung (張家輝), Louis Koo (古天樂), and more attended a celebratory banquet for their film Line Walker: The Movie <使徒行者>, which soared past $700 million HKD at the Asian box office last weekend. $580 million of that came from Mainland China, proving it a box office success.

In regards to Line Walker’s box office success, Francis joked, “I’m definitely not excited about it! It should gross at least over $1 billion! $700 million is not enough! Let’s hope it’ll continue to rise.”

Charmaine added, “I am happy. It is my first movie to break $700 million.” (Would you want it to gross more?) “How greedy! But like what Francis said, of course I would like it to earn more.”

Asking if the studios are planning for a sequel, Charmaine said, “I heard they’re planning it.” Francis said, “Let’s do all three at once!”

Would Charmaine be asking for a pay raise? She said with a smile, “I rather I get more screen time.” Francis said, “We’re tied to our contracts for the next few years. We can’t ask for a raise even if we wanted to.” Francis said he’s satisfied with his screen time in the film, expressing, “I already felt laborious with what I had, so I am satisfied.”

      has anyone seen the movie. does it live up to all the hype? i recall the laughing gor movies were quite a joke, they were just milking the franchise until there was nothing left. all the sequels and prequels were all unnecessary.

        @m0m0 It was better than expected. I was skeptical after TITS2 movie lol Nick, Louis, and Francis were good as usual. Charmaine wasn’t really a factor with her limited screen time.

      Jayne:
      Francis Ng’s Chinese name should be “Francis Ng Chun-Yu
      吳鎮宇”, not “吳卓羲” as stated in the above article. Thanks for the correction.
