To date, "Nightfall" has raked in about 30 million yuan (US$ 4.77 million) on the mainland, and is expected to take at least 10 million yuan (US$1.59 million) in Hong Kong.
Last night, a celebratory party, covered by selected media outlets, was held in Hong Kong to celebrate the film's success, Mtime.com reports.
Director Zhou Xianyang and script writer Chi-long To, along with lead actors Nick Cheung, Simon Yam, Janice Man and On-on Yu also appeared at the event.
Nick Cheung commented that he spent 7 months losing weight for the film. He now needs another 7 months to recover and return to his previous weight. "It was kind of a sacrifice for the film, but I don't think it was healthy. Even if I got more money for a film of the same genre, I probably wouldn't do it again," commented Cheung.
