Woo's $US80 million two-part epic Red Cliff, based on an ancient Chinese battle by the same name, is a prime example of the recent trend of films made with an eye toward mainland viewers. Wilson Yip's action-filled biography of Bruce Lee's teacher Ip Man is another example, portraying the late martial arts master as a patriot who resists the Japanese occupation of his southern Chinese hometown.
The first installment of Red Cliff is up for 15 prizes and Ip Man is competing for 12 at the Hong Kong Film Awards. Both movies are nominated for best picture.

But another top contender harkens back to the locally flavoured fare made in the former British colony known for its mix of Chinese and Western cultures.

Liv Tyler's passionate workout

The 'Lord of the Rings' star was photographed passionately hugging and kissing David Hirsch after an intimate lunch in Westwood, New Jersey, yesterday (22.04.09)
Dressed in a sexy black and white backless sundress, Liv and her new man - who showed off his buff body in a tight green T-shirt and fitted beige trousers - couldn't keep their hands off each other as they walked to his car, stopping in the parking lot several times to kiss and cuddle.
The actress couldn't stop smiling and seemed totally smitten with her new lover.
The 31-year-old actress has been single since last year, when she announced she was divorcing British musician Royston Langdon - with whom she has a four-year-old son, Milo.
Liv recently revealed she felt physically sick when she split from her husband last May, and still finds the break-up difficult to come to terms with.
She said: "There's nothing worse than heartache, being lovesick. It's like there's a physical sickness. You go throu…

Lindsay Lohan's Samantha split confusion

Lindsay Lohan didn't realise she had split from girlfriend Samantha Ronson for a week.
The 'Mean Girls' actress - whose tumultuous romance with the 31-year-old DJ ended earlier this month - admits it took her several days to understand her relationship had broken down.
Asked if there is anything more difficult than playing out the end of a relationship in the public eye, Lindsay replied: "When you don't know you're breaking up. Really weird.
"I had no idea what was going on. I just hadn't seen her in like a week. She like, disappeared."
Despite her initial shock Lindsay claims she has now come to terms with the break-up, but refuses to rule out reuniting with Samantha.
She told US TV talk show host Ellen DeGeneres: "When people are together so much it gets really difficult and you forget who you are because you're more concerned about being with the other person, I think it's been really good for me. I thought it would be so much harder a…

The Shopping Bag Bra

Thanks to the lingerie company Triumph Japan, the ladies amongst you can now help the environment by wearing a bra that contains padded cups that cleverly convert into reusable shopping bags, hence cutting down on waste - however, quite how you’d manage to pull them out from under your blouse without drawing attention to yourself remains a somewhat of a mystery.

Still, if women fumbling under their tops in the middle of a shop floor is going to help save the planet, I don’t doubt that you can not only count on us chaps to be as supportive as the very undergarment in question but you can also rest assured that you’ll rarely visit the supermarket alone again.

Far from just a marketing gimmick, the bra is intended not only to cut down on consumer waste such as plastic bags, but even the bra itself is made from recycled materials – namely recycled plastic bottles - thanks to Triumph’s patented EcoCircle system.
