Hong Kong's take at Cannes

Hong Kong director Wong Kar Wai's much-hyped futuristic movie 2046, premiered at Cannes yesterday and Wong's arrival at Cannes allayed fears that the movie might not make it in time for the festival. It is one of six Asian films in competition.

The movie has been four years in the making and was reportedly still being edited in Thailand when the festival opened last Wednesday.

Reports say its stars Tony Leung Chiu Wai and Zhang Ziyi have the most screen time in the final cut, while Maggie Cheung, Gong Li, Faye Wong, Carina Lau and Takuya Kimura only have supporting roles.

Still, most of the cast members, including Kimura, showed up for the film's premiere.

Zhang has already arrived at the French Riveria resort. She checked in on Monday at the Hotel Martinez where Gong is also a guest.

On Friday, Hong Kong director Johnnie To's thriller, Breaking News, will be shown out of competition. Kelly Chen will be showing up for it's premiere at Cannes too and donning a Christian Dior gown.

Cheung, meanwhile, is likely to walk the red carpet that day with her former husband, French film-maker Olivier Assayas, at the premiere of their movie, Clean, which is up for the Palme d'Or.

China's Zhang Yimou's House of Flying Daggers will be shown out of competition and all of its A-list stars - Andy Lau, Takeshi Kaneshiro and Zhang Ziyi - showed up for the occasion.
