Career[edit]

Cinema City[edit]

In 1980, Wong formed the renowned Cinema City Co., Ltd. with Karl Maka and Dean Shek. The production company became an industry phenomenon, producing films such as A Better Tomorrow, Aces Go Places, Prison on Fire and All About Ah-Long.[1] Actors such as Chow Yun-fat, Leslie Cheung and Ti Lung along with filmmakers John Woo, Ringo Lam and Tsui Hark were some of the people who rose to fame under the Cinema City label. He played the actor in the comedy ghost series Happy Ghost (開心鬼).

In 1991, the trio broke up, with both Maka and Shek ending their interests in the film industry.

Mandarin Films[edit]

Wong eventually formed Mandarin Films Distribution Co. Ltd. later that year, while continuing to establish himself as a successful film producer. Mandarin went on to produce films such as The Bride with White Hair, Dragon Tiger Gate, and Flash Point, with Wong often serving as an executive producer for the films produced. To this day, the company has produced over 100 films.
