Nestor Nieves, senior vice president of New Line Cinema International, flew in from Hong Kong, after visiting several Asian countries. He arrived with Wilson Yuloque, president of Pioneer Films, local distributors of some Hollywood blockbusters.

New Line Cinema’s latest flick is the action-comedy film of Jackie Chan and Chris Tucker “Rush Hour 3″, now enjoying nationwide viewership since its opening on August 8.
