Malaysian film, The Kid From The Big Apple 2: Before We Forget, has already hit a huge accomplishment with its hall bookings hitting half a million ringgit – way before the film was even released. This alone proves that the sequel to last year’s hit film, The Kid From The Big Apple, is one of the most highly anticipated local film of the year.
The film’s movie distributor, GSC Movies, opened up the hall booking opportunities just last month and it did not take long for it to receive an overwhelming response. Currently, the film has secured a total of 153 booked screenings which is expected to host about thirty thousand audiences.
The Kid From The Big Apple 2: Before We Forget has reached a milestone achievement for a Malaysian Chinese film by securing over RM500,000 in box office sales prior to its general release in the cinemas.
Written and directed by the talented Jess Teong, the sequel continues where the first film left off with Chun Gen moving into his new family home. However, this time around, the film plunges deeper into the sentimental elements by touching on real-life issues that resonate with people from all walks of life.
The Kid From The Big Apple 2: Before We Forget highlights the importance of family ties, traditional values and carries a key message of cherishing each and every family member while we still have the privilege to do so.
Starring industry big names such as Tommy Tam (Ti Lung) and Debbie Goh along with rising child actress Sarah Tan Qin Lin, the sequel hits local cinemas today. The film will also be screened in Singapore, Hong Kong and Taiwan.
