|Howdy. Welcome to the Chow Yun Fat Realvideo Archive. Asian superstar Chow Yun Fat has just had his American movie debut with the stylish action film, "The Replacement Killers" (Go see it now!). Of course, to become a star in America, you have to promote yourself and your movies. To this end, CYF has appeared in a number of popular late-night talk shows, such as The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, and Vibe with Sinbad. Many of CYF's fans don't readily have access to these shows, or may have simply missed them during their airdates. So, as often as possible, I've attempted to digitise them and put them online in high-quality RealVideo files for all to see. Hooray for the Internet! Relevant articles, pictures, and anything else cool that I've found will also make its way here. And while this site is dedicated to CYF's US TV interviews and appearances, don't be surprised to see realvideos of US media appearances by other former Hong Kong movie stars like Jackie Chan and Jet Li. Enjoy the site!|

(February 16th, 1999) - Discovered the solution to the problem with the Jet Li videos. Use Getright! Or any download recovery program (e.g., Goz!lla, etc). Even if your browser seems to download the files properly, they are stored as ascii files of some sort and thus will not work. You will not have this problem if your download manager utility is on. Please use one. (Thanks for the help, Jost!)
(February 14th, 1999) - Be wary of the non-streaming (.rm) Jet Li Interview videos. Several people have mentioned that they do not play properly after downloading them. I am working on getting replacements up, but until then, I suggest you be cautious before potentially wasting a lot of time downloading them. Note that others have said they work perfectly, though.
(February 9th, 1999) - Another day, another update. The U.S. trailers for Jet Li's upcoming Black Mask film are now available in the videos section! By the way, the release date for Black Mask has been pushed back from March to April 30th.
