Variety: H.K.’s Filmart gets Beijing accent

The 15 years of Hong Kong Filmart have been a busy and transformative decade and a half in the territory, a period during which Cantonese movies developed a pronounced Mandarin accent, reflecting deepening cross-border relations with mainland China.

Co-production is always a big theme at this key event at the Hong Kong Intl. Film Festival, especially co-productions with the booming Chinese mainland.”

In the early days, co-production meant working with China to get a mainland release. But now the emergence of the China market has changed that frame of mind. The emergence of the China market has been a godsend, as we watched Hong Kong’s market share in Taiwan, Malaysia, Indonesia and other regional markets diminish. In the past two to three years, co-productions have gradually evolved into co-productions in a real sense,” says Albert Lee, chief executive of Emperor Motion Pictures.

THR: ‘Aftershock’ rattles China exhibitors, filmgoers

Aftershock, a drama about one of the deadliest earthquakes in history, is due to shake more movie theaters across China than any film in history, opening Thursday on more than 3,500 screens.

THR: Aftershock (review)

“Aftershock” is ultimately a small family melodrama revolving around perennial themes of love, forgiveness and coming-of-age. Feng ditches his usual sharp-tongued humor and feisty characters to concentrate on stimulating the tear ducts through traditional but polished storytelling technique.

CRI: Film “Aftershock” Opens to Public

Pirated copies of Aftershock have already surfaced on the eve of the national release. One online 100 minute version has appeared with the final 20 minutes missing. 30 minute cellphone videos and CD-ROMs have also appeared in Guangzhou. (Xinhua)

Danwei: Aftershock, filmed like The Banquet or The Day After Tomorrow? Decide!

The Liaoshen Evening News published an investigation into the commercial backing of the film, interviewing its producer on the Tangshan side, Yao Jianguo.

Related:

The deputy manager of the big shot New Film Association, Gao Jun, accepted an interview and said that most of the films in China are cutting a loss. This is true for the majority of the 20 films shown in June. For example, Love In Cosmos stopped showing after not making 5 million yuan, Ocean Heaven will hardly make the 8 million yuan it spent on production, and it would be hard for Welcome to Shamatown to make a profit on its 16 million yuan production and 8 million yuan running costs.
