Stars have walked the red carpet for the premiere of Chinese film "Mr. Six" in Beijing. Feng Xiaogang, who won the "Best Actor" award at the Golden Horse Film Festival a month ago, joined the director Guan Hu, actress Xu Qing, and actors Wu Yifan and Li Yifeng.
A number of famous actors and actresses who have appeared in Xiaogang's movies, including Fan Bingbing and Ge You, also showed up to support the film at the premiere.
This is the second time that Feng played a lead role in a movie and it might be his last. After he received the "Best Actor" award he said that he would quit acting in movies.
"Today's premiere makes me think about the premieres I attended for my former movies. It has been two years since I directed movies. This time, I'm very honored to play in 'Mr. Six,' directed by Guan Hu. I really appreciate this experience and this premiere."
The film is a modern tale of Mr Six, a middle aged former kingpin who reigned over the Beijing streets for years. As he lives in a world that is bound to be destroyed by modernity, the film portrays the battle between him and a much younger drag-racing street gang leader, played by Wu Yifan.
Wu said the most challenging part of making the film for him was the pressure of acting with Feng. "Actually, this kind of stubborn and honest person exist in all walks of life, but I think the perfect person to play Mr. Six is Feng Xiaogang. In terms of life experience and temperament, director Feng is the perfect person to play Mr. Six."
"Mr Six" hit Chinese theaters on December 24th.
