THE LAST TYCOON (DAI SEUNG HOI) will soon open. The cast not only included Chow Yun Fat, Huang Xiaoming, Sammo Hung Kam Bo, Francis Ng Chun Yu, Yolanda Yuan Quan and other superstars, the film theme song performer is fellow heavyweight song god Jacky Cheung Hok Yau.
This time producer Andrew Lau Wai Keung contacted Cheung Hok Yau, who already thought that the story was rather attractive as soon as he heard it. He immediately agreed to perform before the lyrics even reached his hands. He was even fully prepared before recording. In order to accurately interpret the film's emotions, he asked Lau Wai Keung to show him parts of the film. After seeing the trailer, Hok Yau said that the film was a rare one that shocked him in recent years. He said, "THE LAST TYCOON is a surging film. I hope to be able to sing the feeling of a man who look at the changes of a lifetime in detail, for the film through the lyrics to be sung into the hearts of viewers."
Actually, Fat Gor years ago released a record that sold 100,000 copies and was the favorite of the music scene rookie that year. Later Fat Gor released an album that also received an enthusiastic response. In recent years he no longer had any intention to return to the microphone. When Fat Gor learned that Cheung Hok Yau would sing the theme song for THE LAST TYCOON, he felt that Hok Yau was the only choice. Fat Gor even joked, "Back then when I met Cheung Hok Yau I already felt that he was Song God. I immediately retired from music. This time is truly too great that THE LAST TYCOON asked him to sing the theme song. I truly can't wait to hear it. I originally wanted to sneak into the recording studio to hear it first, but they found out and stopped me. I could only wait for the song to be completed before enjoying it."
Yesterday the film held a press conference in Beijing. All the actresses including Yuan Quan, Monica Mok Siu Kei, Feng Wenjuan, Yuan Li, Tong Fei, and Zheng Yitong attended with Lau Wai Keung and director Wong Jing. Bona film group chief Yu Dong even announced that THE LAST TYCOON has been scheduled for a December 22 Mainland release. He confidently said, "This Christmas, THE LAST TYCOON and THE GRANDMASTERS (YUT DOI JUNG SI) will exceed 1 billion at the box office."
