The box office battle between Lunar New Year movies heat up with star-studded The Monkey King opening over the festive season. The movie's cast Aaron Kwok, Gong Li, William Feng, Little Shenyang, Kelly Chen, Him Law and Sammo Hung got together to promote their movie yesterday. At the press conference, Aaron complimented Gong Li on her No. 1 performance as the white bone demon, and in return, he was praised by Gong Li for being a great actor.

When asked if they are worried about the stiff competition posed by Stephen Chow's "The Mermaid" and other major movies also shown during the Lunar New Year holidays, Aaron said, "There will be a movie boom and I hope the audience will favor us." William said it is a family movie but turned bashful when asked about nuzzling up to Gong Li in a scene. He explained that it happened when Gong Li's character tried to eat him and he felt pressurised to be acting in an intimate scene with the goddess, "I was very nervous and my eyes were shut all the time but I can sense her breathing over me."
