The Hong Kong crime thriller "Cold War" will be the opening film of this year's Busan International Film Festival, the leading film festival in South Korea and one of the biggest in Asia.

Co-directors Sunny Luk and Longman Leung on Monday (September 10, 2012) gathered the cast to announce the news in Hong Kong.
