This article says that Men Behind the Sun premiered on Dec 1, 1988, but the database has 12/23/88 as the opening... is there an error on our side?

HKFA says 12/23/88. Maybe 12/1 is a preview date? Benefit screening? :roll:

Man shot inside Pacific Mall

(story developing, I guess . . .)

"People won't want to come. They are shocked," he said.
