New Chinese crime flick premieres in Shanghai
"The Big Call," a film based on a true criminal case, held its premiere in Shanghai yesterday.
Hong Kong director Pang Chun and Chinese mainland actor Chen Xuedong arrived in town to share some behind-the-scenes stories.
The film, said to be China's first anti-phone scam movie, tells the story of policemen and SWAT teams in China who have to chase and catch criminals who swindle hundreds of millions of yuan from business tycoons and ordinary people.
It is slated for national release on December 8.
