Hong Kong will be the first city in Asia to screen Quentin Tarantino's anticipated film, Kill Bill. It will open on Thursday, one week before it hits screens in Japan. Tarantino's fondness for Hong Kong cinema is apparent: the Shaw Brothers' 1970s flip-card logo appears at the start of his film. 'Quentin spent a lot of time in the Shaw Brothers studio in Hong Kong about two years back, watching and absorbing a lot of the essence of the Shaw Brothers' martial arts films,' says Tony Watts, senior vice-president of Celestial Pictures TV Network. 'The flip card is his way of paying homage to the work done by the Shaw Brothers studio in the 1970s.' And what about the trends to come? Pulp Fiction had all the girls sporting Cleopatra-style blunt haircuts and 'vamp' Chanel nail polish. CitySeen is betting that Uma Thurman's yellow-and-black Bruce Lee tracksuits (above) will be a big hit - as they were earlier among the local cast of So Close (right). More on Kill Bill and Quentin Tarantino this Sunday in Post Magazine.
