Chinese Box - Jeremy Irons (1997) - Queen's Road Central, Hong Kong

At a point in the film, Irons runs after Cheung in an attempt to interview her for some personal project. They run out of the building, situated on Wellington Street, down to the junction with Queen's Road Central before Irons character starts to feel ill and stops on the pedestrian island that sits at the junction with Queen's Road Central and the top end of Bonham Strand.

So first we see a brief glimpse of the back of the Kam On Building at the end of Wellington Street.

The blue/white striped hoarding in the background is covering the in-progress constructions of Grand Millenium Plaza which includes Cosco Tower that was finished in 1997. Moving across the road to the island is where Irons starts to lag because of his illness. The upper picture below shows the camera looking down the curve of Queen's Road Central, whilst the lower picture of Maggie Cheung shows Bonham Strand just where it joins with Jervois Street.
