There’s a saying which goes: “A friend in need is a friend indeed”. After all, a good friend would want to help out another, if they can, wouldn’t they? Well, it seems fans are hoping for some superstars to step in and lend Hong Kong artist Louis Koo (古天樂) a hand.
Louis recently released his latest film “Warriors of Future (明日战记)” which he has been working on for 10 years. Unfortunately, the long-term project hasn’t been doing well, box office-wise. Well, netizens are now asking Andy Lau (刘德华) and Nicholas Tse (谢霆锋) to help promote the film!
The film was actually released in China on 5th August and will be released in Hong Kong on 25th August. However, so far, the film reportedly has not been doing as well as expected. In fact, some claim Louis shed a few tears over it.
Well, it appears that netizens, aside from watching the movie, have decided there must be another way to help its box office. As such, they recently flooded Andy Lau’s Douyin to ask for assistance. “Mr. Lau, can you help (Louis Koo) publicise his movie?” a comment asked. “It’s hard for him to (do this) alone. We are so distressed!” Others simply told Andy to “support “Warriors of Future”“. Andy wasn’t the only one who fans bombarded. Nicholas Tse was also called upon to help out.
However, other fans felt this was wrong. Several made it clear that guilt tripping the stars into helping was not the way to do it. “As a true fan of Louis Koo,” one stated. “We will use our own strength to support and promote the film. We will not guilt trip anyone via other star’s (socials) as Louis Koo (wouldn’t) want this.” A comment even pointed out that perhaps the stars hadn’t seen the comments as the accounts could be managed by their assistants.
Well, there are still a few days before “Warriors of Future” shows in Hong Kong! Hopefully, that helps to boost the film’s box office. In the meantime, we’re sure Louis is doing what he can to promote his own film, without resorting to guilt tripping his friends.
