HONG KONG SUPERSTARS Gets An Online Resurrection From Its Editor
Filmmaker and documentarian Chris Ducker has had his share of hurdles over the course of time it took to present the world with one of his earliest efforts in catering to fans of Asian cinema, Hong Kong Superstars. Alas, it's taken fifteen years before anyone would be allowed to view the interviews Ducker and his team hosted for the ambitious video magazine back between 1999 and 2000, and thankfully, Ducker and editor Lee Mason have taken it upon themselves to share their long-awaited labor of love with the world.
Hong Kong Superstars was a fan magazine from the UK focusing on Hong Kong Cinema and edited by Chris Ducker. The video magazine was modeled on what Eastern Heroes had done by branching out into making videos. Eastern Heroes were actually set to release the Hong Kong Superstars video in 2001 under the title of 'Cinema of Vengeance 2'. For unknown reasons this never happened and the project was shelved. *Now with the addition of the Donnie Yen interview which featured on the UK DVD release of Drunken Tai Chi, the contents of the Hong Kong Superstars video has never been seen until now.
Special thanks to Lee Mason for this collective entreé of awesome!
