We've lost a few important people:

- Margot Kidder
- http://bloody-disgusting.com/news/3497160/r-p-john-altamura-played-toxic-avenger-two-films-found-dead/ -- John Altamura

If you want to connect BLACK MASK and HEROIC TRIO, this is thread: Acclaimed Hong Kong actor Anthony Wong plays the drug dealer with the S&M girlfriend in Black Mask, and the henchman with the flying guillotine in Heroic Trio.

The pronunciation of Tsui Hark is "Choy Hawk". He also directed "Knock-Off" with Van Damme.

So Michelle Yeoh was in Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon. Maggie Cheung was in Zhang Yimou's Hero, which followed in the coattails of Crouching Tiger. Anita Mui was set to have an important role in House of Flying Daggers, also by Zhang Yimou, but died of cervical cancer in 2003.
