BEIJING – Nasdaq-listed Chinese film studio the Bona Film Group on Wednesday said it would move forward to a Dec. 22 release Hong Kong director Derek Yee’s $15 million 1920s narrative feature The Great Magician, starring Tony Leung Chiu-wai.

The date change will pit Leung, one of the most award-winning Hong Kong actors of all time, against Hollywood star Christian Bale on Chinese screens during the peak Christmas film season.

“Positive confrontation will be inevitable” Bona said in a statement, noting that audiences may like to compare Leung’s portrayal of a magician with Bale’s from his 2006 role in The Prestige.

Bale, who won the Best Supporting Oscar in March for his role in The Fighter, will star next in the Dec. 16 release of Chinese director Zhang Yimou’s historical drama 13 Flowers of Nanjing.

Leung, who was named Best Actor at the Golden Horse Awards and the Asian Film Awards in 2007 for his role in Ang Lee’s Lust, Caution, will play the powerful prestidigitator Zhang Xian, whose ex-lover (played by Chinese actress Zhou Xun, star of The Message and Painted Skin), gets mixed up with an evil warlord played by Hong Kong actor Sean Lau Ching-wan.

“It’s a love triangle,” a Bona official told The Hollywood Reporter.

Bona, whose financial stability has wavered since it listed its shares in New York in December, earlier had planned to release The Great Magician during the Lunar New Year period in early 2012.

Tony Leung Says 'The Great Magician' Comes Fast

Actor Tony Leung Chiu-wai, who is working with director Derek Yee on the film, "The Great Magician", has praised Yee for being productive, and said he was not comparing him to Wong Kar-wai, the director of "The Grandmasters" which also stars Leung.

Journalists were invited to the set of "The Great Magician" in the suburbs of Beijing on Tuesday, May 31. Leung, who plays the title character, told the media that filming had been fast and pleasant.

"Probably because we were so happy working together. Good time always passes fast," Leung was quoted by as saying.

This remark aroused media questions about whether he was hinting at the lengthy process of "The Grandmasters", which Leung has been involved with for years but has yet to come out.

Leung said he was not making comparisons between Yee and Wong. The latter's 2000 film, "In the Mood for Love", earned Leung a best actor award at the Cannes Film Festival.

"I'm just saying that 'The Great Magician' is such a big movie, which will contain lots of special effects. I thought shooting would take at least half a year, but Derek made it in just two or three months," said Leung.

"The Great Magician" will soon wrap up filming, and is slated for a New Year's release.

In the film, Leung stars as Zhang Xian, a powerful magician living in the early 20th century. Zhang goes abroad to study magic, and when he comes back he discovers his fiancée, played by Zhou Xun, has become a warlord's concubine.

Sean Lau Ching-Wan plays the warlord, with Yan Ni as another one of his concubines.

@Jiatou ia kah? ga pernah nonton THE ILLUSIONIST emoticon-Hammer
haha iya premise awalnya kok mirip ama the illusionist yak emoticon-Big Grin. yah semoga aja eksekusi ceritanya gak sama emoticon-Smilie.

the prestige itu kan ceritanya tentang perseteruan abadi antara 2 pesulap. kalo the illusionist ceritanya tentang pesulap yang ingin membawa kabur mantan ceweknya yang udah jadi istri seorang pangeran yang kejam.
