In an earlier promotion for A Battle of Wits at apm, Choi Si-Won's fans were far more stronger when compared to Andy Lau's fans. Meanwhile in the premiere of the movie at Times Square two nights ago, Andy's fans made a return as they occupied the good position in-front of the stage with lighted up pla-cards with loud screams whereas Choi's fans were left behind near the exit which were covered by cameras. However Andy was kind enough to put his hands on Choi's waist and walked towards his own fans to show a good hand sign to praise Choi, in return Choi waved to Andy's fans.

Other than Andy and Choi, Fan Bingbing, Nicky Wu, Chin Siu Ho, Hung Tin Chiu and director Jacob Chang also attended. However they were neglected as both Andy and Choi had huge fans' support. Several celebrities also attended the premiere to show their support which includes Soler, Ella Koon, Lee San San, Di Lung and Natalie Ng Man Yan.

Andy did his best to promote the movie, when the premiere was about to end, he exclaimed that he doesn't have high hopes for the box office taking of this movie as it does not have a popular theme but he hope for good results, although it was shot with elegant backgrounds but it draws a line from normal wu xia films, but it do have many touching scenes.

Being the best man for Hacken Lee's wedding, he had received his invitation card, he quipped: "I should blame him for letting me to be the last one to be informed! (So would you be helping him out in the alcohol toasting?) I'll try my best, I'll settle everything for him!" Whereas he's still preparing the present for the couple, he would not reveal what present he would be getting, he hope Hacken to be the first person to know what present he bought.

When Hung Tin Chiu was asked by the compere on the "not attack and show love" theme of the movie, he appeared shocked which makes Andy thought that he does not understand Cantonese, thus he asked him in Mandarin: "You're still unsure after shooting the whole movie?" Then he explained to him, the most comical part was that Hung replied to him in Cantonese.

Although premieres had been held in Beijing, Shanghai and Shenzhen but Choi expressed that he's nervous coming to Hong Kong. After his previous visit to the Madame-Tussauds Wax Museum at the peak, he visited the museum again in order to take photograph with Andy's Infernal Affairs wax figure. He expressed that the figure looked realistic from far but from near it lose the handsome and charisma of Andy. When asked if Andy is most handsome with reporters saying that he's more handsome, Choi find it hard to answer as he said: "Don't say it that way, I'm in a difficult position!"

Both Andy and Choi were happy and become good friends after shooting the movie as they hope to collaborate again.
