5 Dec – Legendary Hong Kong actor Tony Leung, who made history by being the first Chinese actor awarded the Golden Lion Lifetime Achievement Award at this year's Venice Film Festival, will be here in Malaysia to promote his latest crime movie "The Goldfinger". He will be here on 22 December along with the movie's director cum writer Felix Chong and producer Ronald Wong.
"The Goldfinger" which is directed and written by Felix Chong, produced by Ronald Wong, and features a stellar cast including Tony Leung, Andy Lau, Charlene Choi, Simon Yam, Alex Fong, Philip Keung, Chin Ka Lok, Carlos Chan, Catherine Chau, Michael Ning and Tai Bo, is scheduled for release here on 30 December.
The movie is based on a real-life financial fraud in Hong Kong that shocked the world in the 1980s. It tells the story of the rise and bust of a giant conglomerate Carmen Enterprises, following the travails of its chairman Ching Yat Yin (Tony Leung) through 15 years of investigations by the Independent Commission Against Corruption (ICAC) headed by Senior Principal Investigator Lau Kai Yuen (Andy Lau) as murders are committed, billions in market value evaporate and millions are spent on litigation fees.
Tony Leung and Andy Lau are both Asia's most successful and internationally recognised actors, with multiple best actor awards under their belts. "The Goldfinger" marks Tony Leung's reunion with Andy Lau after a 21-year hiatus since "Infernal Affairs."
The trio will be attending a press conference and gracing the gala premiere red carpet at GSC's newly launched flagship boutique cinema, Aurum Theatre, in ultra luxurious mall The Exchange TRX.
A curated space for both movie-enthusiasts and trend-setters alike, Aurum Theatre, The Exchange TRX will also be home to two dining establishments – sure to delight your senses. Aurum Theatre, The Exchange TRX is set to open in early 2024.
