emperormotion

Founded in 2000, Emperor Motion Pictures (EMP) is engaged in the field of financing, production and distribution of feature films and television dramas, audio-visual product production and distribution, as well as artiste management. EMP has been actively engaged in film distribution, and an office was set up in Beijing in 2007 to target the fast growing Mainland market. EMP has started looking towards Hollywood for opportunities to work with American filmmakers, resulting in its investment in “W” by Academy Award winning director Oliver Stone.

Over the past years, films financed and produced by EMP have won numerous awards and dominated the box-office. They include leading character actor Nick Cheung’s unprecedented seven acting awards for “The Beast Stalker” in 2009, followed two years later by Nicholas Tse’s best actor triumph at the 30th Hong Kong Film Awards for “The Stool Pigeon”. Other notable feature film projects such as “The Twins Effect”, “New Police Story”, “Shaolin”, “The Great Magician”, “The Bullet Vanishes”, “The Last Supper” and “Beginning of The Great Revival”, etc., has all won public accolades, with Dante Lam’s action blockbuster “The Viral Factor” becoming Hong Kong’s top-grossing Chinese-language film during Lunar New Year in 2012.  Even more impressively, actor-director Jiang Wen’s “Let The Bullets Fly” grossed more than RMB 700 million at China’s box-office, a record high in 2010. Jackie Chan’s “CZ12” has hit yet another milestone with RMB 1.3 billion international box-office up till March 2013.

Concurrently, EMP is dedicated to bringing top foreign-language films to the Hong Kong audience. After critical and commercial success with Japan’s controversial “Departures”, an Academy Award winner for Best Foreign Language Film, EMP went on to score major hits with Korea’s “Silenced” and global Hollywood sensations “Sex and the City”, “Limitless”, “The Hunger Games”. In addition to actively developing and expanding its distribution activities into China to service its upcoming slate of productions, EMP has also recently branched out into artiste management.  Casting its nets far and wide, EMP now represents a number of well established stars, including Simon Yam, Alex Fong, Wai Ying-hung, Damian Lau, Michelle Yim, and Irene Wan.
