Hong Kong king of comedy Stephen Chow's latest epic, Kung Fu Hustle, hit the big screen at the Toronto Film Festival Tuesday night.
But the veteran film star, who promised to show up at the grand world premiere, couldn't make it.
So the film's two leading actresses, Yuan Qiu and Eva Wong, did the honors instead.
Stephen Chow and Spiderman's sound effects man were reportedly busy with the final editing of Kung Fu Hustle's sound effects.
