The Children of Huang Shi had been scheduled to open in the cinema on 3 April 2008, it will be the same where Andy Lau's Three Kingdom - Resurrection of the Dragon opening in the cinema, both film's distributor expressed that they did not expect this to happen. In the early nineties, Andy and Chow Yun Fat had collaborated in God of Gambler, since then they had not collaborate on the silver screen for close to 20 years, thus their latest films opening on the same day will be the talking point.

The film distributor for The Children of Huang Shi revealed that the film censorship board had already passed the film for screening on 3 April, the film will have a running time of 117 minutes. On the same day, Andy's Three Kingdom - Resurrection of the Dragon will also open in the cinema on the same day. With regards to two major production opening in the cinema on the same day, both films' distributor didn't expect such situation but they had confidence in their own film. The cinemas feel that both films compete against each other cannot be avoidable as it will be a battle of the popularity between Andy and Chow.

The Children of Huang Shi is a love story, narrating About young British journalist, George Hogg, who with the assistance of a courageous Australian nurse, saves a group of orphaned children during the Japanese occupation of China in 1937. Meanwhile in Three Kingdom - Resurrection of the Dragon will be about Zhao Zilong which will be played by Andy, the story will be rather traditional as it used another angle to look into the truth of history and dig out the ugly side of human during chaos. Andy will act from young to old, upholding his brotherhood.

The drawing power for the Children of Huang Shi would be Chow Yun Fat whereas the drawing power of Three Kingdom - Resurrection of the Dragon would surely be Andy Lau. Both films would be investing heavily to fight for the market. The cinemas would like to see a both winning situation for the films as this is very much possible.

The film distributor for Children of Huang Shi revealed that Chow Yun Fat wull be attending the worldwide charity event held at Huang Shi on 31 March and promotions in Mainland China. Meanwhile the film distributor of Three Kingdom - Resurrection of the Dragon expressed that this film will be the first film for Andy after last year's The Warlords, Andy will also accommodate the promotional activities.
