M’sia’s cinematic, melodious, star-studded year
When it comes to the silver screen, much excitement is in store for movie-goers this year.
The most anticipated film, undoubt edly is Hikayat Merong Mahawangsa. Said to have been confirmed for distribution in 72 countries, the RM8 million movie will have a difficult time keeping up to expec tations.
The pre-hype for the film has been im mense, and judging by the preview trailer released, The Malay Chronicles (the English title for the film) may not just live up to ex pectations, but in fact, surpass in terms of production quality.
Most bankable leading man Shaheizy Sam, leads the list for starring in the two top grossing movies of the past year. However, following closely will be the un derrated Bront Palarae who scored wins for FFM and Anugerah Skrin last year. Remy Ishak is waiting in the wings. Even though he is fairly green, the young actor is one to look out for.
