[Synopsis] Set amid the chaos of pre-revolutionary China, small time thief, Sing (Stephen Chow), aspires to be one of the sophisticated and ruthless Axe Gang whose underworld activities overshadow the city. Stumbling across a crowded apartment complex aptly known as “Pig Sty Alley”, Sing attempts to extort money from one of the ordinary locals, but the neighbors are not what they appear. Sing’s comical attempts at intimidation inadvertently attract the Axe Gang into the fray, setting off a chain of events that brings the two disparate worlds face-to-face. As the inhabitants of the Pig Sty fight for their lives, the ensuing clash of kung fu titans unearths some legendary martial arts Masters.

[Selling Points] On the 70th anniversary of the birth of Bruce Lee, the film world pays tribute to the legendary martial arts superstar with a biographical film based on the memoir of his younger brother Robert Lee. Unlike most other biopics about him, Bruce Lee, My Brother takes viewers back to his formative years. The action drama found its title character in Aarif Lee, who won the Hong Kong Film Awards Best New Performer trophy with his scene-stealing debut in the hit period drama Echoes of the Rainbow. Aarif's casting is deemed pitch-perfect not only for his physical resemblance to the martial arts icon but also his similar temperament and self-confidence. Surrounding the promising young star is a superb cast that includes Tony Leung Ka Fai, Christy Chung, and Jennifer Tse (Nicholas Tse's sister) in her film debut, as well as a number of star cameos.

[Synopsis] Born in San Francisco on November 27, 1940, Bruce Lee was still a baby when his father, Cantonese opera artist Lee Hoi Chuen (Tony Leung) brought his wife Grace Ho (Christy Chung) and the children back to Hong Kong to stay close to his mother (Lee Heung Kam) and sister (Michelle Ye) on the eve of the outbreak of WWII. Bruce the little brat starred in his first film, Fung Fung's (Cheung Tat Ming) The Kid at the tender age of nine, and his cinematic connection later led him to his first taste of romance with Man Yee (Jennifer Tse) and Man Lan (Gong Mi), daughters of movie stars Tso Tat Wah (Eddie Cheung) and Leung Sing Por, respectively. But Bruce's real passion was always in martial arts, and the teenager took to the Wing Chun kung fu under the tutelage of Master Ip Man. Together with buddies Little Unicorn (MC Jin), Ngun (Hanjin Tan), and Kwong (Zhang Yishan), the hot-blooded young punk enjoyed picking fights with people, and that eventually sent him into the crosshairs of both the triad and the police...

[Selling Points] In director Gavin Lin's feature film debut In Case of Love, a tiny cat not only heals a young woman (Haden Kuo) reeling from the death of her mother, it also helps her find love with a lonely rock musician Tony Yang (Blood Brothers). A pure love story in every sense of the word, In Case of Love is a simple, heartwarming, and beautifully filmed drama about learning how to stand back up when life knocks us down and overcoming obstacles that stand in the way of love.

[Synopsis] Claire (Haden Kuo), an art department student, chose to live in an isolated world since her mother's death. However, one day her soul was touched again when an abandoned kitty and her best childhood companion James appeared in her life. Claire has been living in her own world until she meets musician James (Tony Yang), whom she believes is her childhood sweetheart. At the same time, Claire also takes in a lost kitten, giving new meaning to her life. However, as her burgeoning romance with James begins to develop further, memories from the past are dug up, forcing them to face their ambiguous relationship and painful past...
