Hong Kong’s stars hit the big screen for Chinese New Year
Traditionally, Chinese New Year is a time to kick back and relax.
But you wouldn’t think so if you caught a glimpse of Hong Kong’s film studio bosses this week.
Fortunes – and careers – are won and lost over the next week or so as the city’s biggest box office period plays out, spurred on annually by “hor sui pin” – or “celebratory New Year films” – so those studio heads have every reason to be nervous.
These kind of productions are a distinctly Hong Kong phenomenon.
