Fearless has held its world premier at Beijing's Grand Hyatt late Friday. Jet Li, Sun Li, Dong Yong and other key members have appeared at the ceremony. It's the latest martial arts film for Kung Fu star Jet Li.
Jet Li is also host of the grand opening ceremony. He has talked about his motivation to shoot Fearless. "I like to tell the story of Fok Yuanjia, the Kung Fu master's spirit to the whole world and let more people know about Chinese Kung Fu and to give money to mend his grave."
Some major cast members have also shared their thoughts about the movie. Director Ronny Yu says he regrets meeting Jet Li so late. "I was moved to tears when I talked with Jet Li for the first time. He talked sincerely to me about wanting to spread Chinese Kong Fu in America and to the whole world."
Leading actor Dong Yong considers Jet Li to be respectable and kind. "He worked hard and treated all the cast and crew nicely."
Jay Chow is responsible for the movie's theme song. Jet Li is very excited about Jay Chow's creation. "I can transfer my intentions to more young audiences through Jay Chow's song because he is a super star in most young people's eyes." Jay Chow plays a female in the Fearless theme song.
