22 Jul – Steve Yuen recently expressed his sadness over the temporary closure of cinemas following the resurgence of COVID-19 cases in Hong Kong.

As reported on Mingpao, the director whose film, "Declared Legally Dead" has been doing tremendously well at the box office as one of the first films to be released in theatres following the easing of the previous restrictions, stated that he does understand the situation despite the bad news, and that health is the most important thing for now.

"Although I feel helpless about it, I still need to coordinate. Reducing mass gatherings is just one of the ways to prevent more cases. I only hope that the pandemic will be under control as soon as possible," he said.

Among other films affected by the temporary closure include Kiwi Chow's "Beyond the Dream", which was just released for 12 days, as well as the South Korean film, "Peninsula" - the sequel to the hit 2016 film, "Train to Busan".
