WIN tickets to The Last Tycoon
Directed by Wong Jing and produced by Andrew Lau, New Year blockbuster The Last Tycoon not only boasts a prolific production team, the film also features a star-studded cast that consists of international stars Chow Yun Fat, Sammo Hung, Huang Xiaoming, Francis Ng and Chinese actresses Yolanda Yuan, Joyce Feng and Monica Mo.
The story is set in 1917, China, where an innocent young man Cheng (Chow Yun Fat) worked in a grocery store and had no ambition other than to be with his lovely neighbour, Qiu (Yolanda Yuan). But a fateful night changed Cheng's life forever after he discovered the affair between the Police chief and his lady boss.
To hide this secret, the chief accused Cheng of raping his lady boss and threw Cheng into prison where he met cellmate Mao (Francis Ng), who was planning to escape. The duo broke jail, and Cheng had no choice but to leave his life and his dream girl behind.
Director Wong, Producer Lau and the main cast visited Singapore earlier this month, where they held a press conference and graced the red carpet at Shaw Lido, for The Last Tycoon's world premiere at ScreenSingapore 2012.
