Meow

(喵星人)
 
Synopsis:

In the new fantasy film, “MEOW”, Louis Koo (“The White Storm”, 2013) re-united with director Benny Chan (“New Police Story”, 2004; “The White Storm”, 2013) to create a family comedy that revolves around an alien called Xixili with a cat appearance.  MEOW was produced on a budget of over USD14.5 million with high-end special effects featuring the adorable Xixili.  Through Xixili, the big fat cat alien, the film reflects the realities of a modern family in a comedic way.  Each family member has his/her own problems and yet it is the love and caring of the other family members that brings the family together.  It also brought out messages to the viewers to love and respect animals.  MEOW is a fun family drama which would bring joy to the viewers throughout the film. 

MEOW, a highly intelligent alien from a far-away planet has been planning to conquer earth to take over humans.  They have adorable cat appearances and often become beloved pets of human beings.  Many of them lived like kings and queens in the human homes as the humans served them with endless food.  Since the MEOW king lost contact with the MEOWs that he previously sent to earth, this time he sent the best warrior Xixili to earth.  However, the plan went off track as Xixili became a big fat cat and was immediately adopted and settled in a loving human family in Hong Kong.

(悟空傳)
 
Synopsis:

After co-directing the mega blockbuster Journey to the West: Conquering the Demons, award-winning Hong Kong director Derek Kwok revisits the Monkey King (also known as Wu Kong) story with an edgier approach. With an all-star cast including Eddie Peng, Shawn Yue, Ni Ni and Oho Ou, this spectacular CG-driven action fantasy tentpole on the Chinese classical novel has proved a huge hit, grossing RMB 700 million in China alone.

The story is set 500 years before Wu Kong rebels against the God and wreaks havoc in the Heavenly Kingdom.

On Mount Huaguo, a monkey is born. A few years later, a powerful Destiny Council leader, Shang Sheng Tian Zun (Yu Faye), decides to murder the mischievous creature. Before she can carry out her plan, the monkey is rescued by a wise monk, Bodhi (Wang Deshun). Possessing magical powers, Bodhi transforms the monkey into human form. He names him Sun Wu Kong (Peng) and the spirited youngster becomes his pupil.

Meanwhile a minor deity, Yang Jian (Yue), has set his sight on becoming a powerful god. He’s given an opportunity to rise up the ranks, however there is a heavy price to pay. He must give up his feelings for Azi (Ni), Shang’s daughter, with whom he’s in love.

Learning of Wu Kong’s growing mystical powers, Shang feels her position on the Council may come under threat and sends her bodyguard Tian Peng (Ou) to catch and imprison him.

For those caught up in the tangled web of romance, rivalry and danger, their once-tranquil lives are about to change.

Our Time Will Come

(明月幾時有)
 
Synopsis:

"Hui has delivered a mellow, slow-burning piece filled with reflections on her favorite topics of cultural dislocation, identity politics and maternal bonds." - The Hollywood Reporter

"The film is a beautifully mounted and emotionally engaging piece." - The Hollywood Reporter

Based on an incredible true story, “Our Time Will Come” is a riveting drama featuring a star-studded cast which includes Zhou Xun, Eddie Peng, Wallace Huo, Deanie Ip, Tony Leung Ka-fai, Guo Tao and Ivana Wong. Tracing the story of the famous Dongjiang guerilla unit, the film vividly brings 1940s Hong Kong back to life, the result of intricate and detailed research by director Ann Hui and her team.

In 1941, Hong Kong is under Japanese control. The three-year-and-eight-month occupation transforms Hong Kong from a prosperous city into a barren land with little food or water. Primary school teacher, Fang Lan (Zhou) and her mother (Ip) are trying to live out this difficult period in a small, run-down flat in Wanchai. After the schools are shut down, Lan, who recently broke up with Wing (Huo), unwittingly finds herself embroiled in the guerillas’ mission to save novelist Mao Dun (Tao). In the process, she meets Blackie Lau (Peng), the intrepid sharpshooter captain of the guerillas’ Urban and Firearms Unit. Taking notice of Lan’s calm, intelligent nature, Blackie recruits her to join the guerillas.
 
Lan sets up a secret liaison point for the resistance fighters and soon becomes involved in the smuggling of intellectuals and artists from the city under the watchful eyes of the Japanese military. Worried for her daughter’s safety, Lan’s mother volunteers to take Lan’s place as a courier, only to be arrested on the job. To save her mother, Lan is forced to turn to Wing, who now works for the Japanese.
