Overview:

“Amazing” (神奇), a basketball-themed movie produced by Shanghai Film Groupand stars Huang Yi, Stephen Fung, Huang Xiaoming, and Amber Kuo; all joined by an all-star team of NBA stars: Dwight Howard, Scottie Pippen and Carmelo Anthony.

This comes after three years of production that has amounted to millions of Yuan in production costs. Only recently did David Stern and the NBA authorize promotional activities for “Amazing”, which will begin airing during the NBA finals, just a bit ahead of its summer release 2012, however this has been moved to summer 2013 where the movie has been nominated for the Golden Goblet Award at the 16th Shanghai International Film Festival.

The hope of this movie, according to a representative of Shanghai Film Group, is to experiment with a new movie genre that will be more in tune with young people as this market audience begins to lose interest in fictional costume movies (古裝大片).
