Astrolife – a brainchild of Astro which purpose is to reward Astro customers and their families for their loyalty shown towards Astro, had invited a total of 50 Astro’s customers to the feast.
For the first time in history, Astro and MY FM jointly present a 100% locally made movie Woohoo! – from director, cast, scriptwriter, to cameraman, the end-to-end production was done locally. The movie incorporates social, family and cultural values in a light-hearted, humorous yet effective way, with plots and dialogues that are relevant to the local lifestyle.
“Woohoo!, is not merely an extension of TV production in Astro, but also our commitment to provide content that enriches life of the Chinese community. We are proud of Woohoo!, however the success doesn’t lie in the number of box office only, but the closer relationship built between us and the audience, and the benchmark we set for the local Chinese film industry,” said 周青元 Chiu Keng Guan.
The movie has garnered over RM4million gross box office despite it was only shown in 38 cinemas nationwide, beating the box office of Singaporean movies The Wedding Game and Love Matters in Malaysia.
On the other hand, Jack Lim was interviewed and asked about Jack Neo scandal / affair, he said he could not believe this would happen to Jack Neo. He’s now busy with 《阿炳》”Ah Beng” sitcom and all kind of activities or merchandise related to 《阿炳》”Ah Beng”.
All of the artists and guest received each a limited edition 35mm film of Woohoo!
