In the waning years of China’s Ming Dynasty, the Bruneian Empire gifts a rare creature to the nation.

With a hefty bounty on his head, Ocean is the target of ambitious eunuch Crane (Fong) who with a motley crew of misfits sets a trap to capture Ocean and the creature. The group gathers at an abandoned inn and await their opportunity…but little do they realise that the gremlin-like creature has the ability to transform its appearance and is all too ready to unleash its power!

Hotel Soul Good

(女皇撞到正)

 

 

Synopsis:

Helmed by Anthony Yan Pak-wing (Full Strike, 2015), this endearing comedy centres around a young woman who after suffering a cosmic accident discovers she can see ghosts.  Packed with humour, Hotel Soul Good features a stellar cast of top Hong Kong comic actors including Chrissie Chau (Marriage with a Liar, 2010), Louis Cheung (Ip Man 3, 2015), Richard Ng (My Lucky Stars, 1985), Eric Kot (You Shoot I Shoot, 2001) and Maggie Shiu (PTU, 2003).

 

Orphan Mei Qi (Chau) has always dreamt of being successful.  Age 30, she’s well on her way to reaching her goal and is a senior executive in a luxury hotel.  But it appears luck is no longer on her side as her best friend betrays her, stealing both her job and her boyfriend.  Making things worse, she’s then hit by fragments of a meteor shower which knock her unconscious.  Waking from a coma, Mei discovers that her world is populated not only with humans but ghosts, all of whom are equally visible and audible to her.

 

Fortunately, the ghosts (Eric Kot, Maggie Siu, Richard Ng) are a friendly bunch and attach themselves to her. And for the first time in her life, Mei has caring companions.  Ones who dispense important life lessons as well as help her run a small hotel, which becomes a social media sensation thanks to the presence of her very welcoming spirit buddies.

Keyboard Warriors

(起底組)

 

 

Synopsis:

Based on a true story, this refreshingly mature comedy by first-time director Michael Sit tells the hilarious story of story of two tech-savvy nerds-turned-crime-vigilantes who come across an armoured van spilling cash onto the streets of Hong Kong. The goofy, crime-fighting tale boasts delightful performances from a stellar cast including Sing Lam (Weeds on Fire, 2016), Neo Yau (She Remembers, He Forgets, 2015), Larine Tang (Agent Mr Chan, 2018), Grace Chan (TVB TV series Captain of Destiny, 2015) and Stephy Tang (The Empty Hands, 2017) and has enjoyed excellent reviews from critics.

Tech-savvy but jobless nerds Jay (Lam) and Ang (Yau) chance upon the scene of a security van’s cash spill – only for an off-duty police officer, Nancy (Tang), to step in before they can take possession of the banknotes.

The police write off the case as an accident, however Ang and Jay are not so sure and take it upon themselves to form their own investigative team roping in anonymous pals from the Golden Forum website, whose expertise ranges from legal counselling to computer hacking.

Appearing to be more efficient than the professionals, Ang, Jay and the Golden Forum squad race ahead with their investigations only to learn they may have uncovered a dark and deadly secret…
