Promo gears up for Return of the Cuckoo Movie Premiere

Finally, the long wait is over. The movie sequel to the popular TVB series 15 years ago, Return of the Cuckoo, will hit theaters tomorrow. I’m nervous about it, honestly. While not the greatest series, Cuckoo left a deep impression on me as child and kinda scarred me a bit too. The characters I should love, I loved. The characters I should hate, I hated. It’s such a dear part of my childhood and kick-started one of my first OTP ships ever in Hong Kong entertainment – Charmaine Sheh and Julian Cheung, together as Charlian. I really don’t want anything to ruin that perfect nostalgic feeling. Yunno? It’s been 15 years… their chemistry is no longer the same…

A lot of pictures and trailers/mv after the jump! You’re warned!

And finally, after much intense digging, I found two pics of her dead hubby! Here’s a peek of Steven Ma, whose character dies in a tragic accident, leaving his wife to mourn after him for years. In the drama, we only see Kwan Ho returning alone to meet her relatives. It’s nice that they invited his character back as a ghost, to help her heal. That’s my guess because of the bright light and how injured she looks and how regretful he looks.

Wishing Kwan Well – Kit Chan. Interesting to hear a female version of this song.

  • Return of the Cuckoo the Movie premieres in Hong Kong, Singapore, and Malaysia on November 12th and on November 20th in China.
  • In a sense, I don’t mind if they don’t end up together since it looks like the story is about Kwan Ho grieving and healing after her husband’s death. They will always be each other’s special person and that alone has transcended romantic love for me.
  • When asked about a possible sequel to the movie, Julian replies it’s not possible while Nancy Sit jokes that in 15 years, she won’t be around anymore. You’re still young! Don’t say that!!
  • Check out my previous post to learn more about the drama version and some old-schooled pictures. 😀
  • If you’re catching it in theaters, let me know how it goes! But no spoilers please!

    Omg! So nice to see Steven ma in flesh!!! I haven’t seen him in any promo or sites. Good job with the digging Kap!! ?

    Their chemistry is so off amd awkward in the videos and pictures. You can see a ckear divide, probably because of the rumors and stuff back them. I loved them so much in point of no return.

      I know! I thought Steven wouldn’t be invited at all but glad he has somewhat of a presence. 🙂
