Vikingdom, first 3D movie directed by Yusri KRU

12 Jan

 

After the success of Hikayat Merong Mahawangsa (a.k.a. The Malay Chronicles) in the international arena, KRU Studios announced the commencement of production of its first English language feature film fully produced in Malaysia entitled VIKINGDOM, directed by Yusry Abdul Halim.

Principal photography commenced on the 15th October 2011 starring Dominic Purcell (Prison Break, The Killer Elite) as Eirick, a Viking warrior who must face his violent past and lift the sword to face a demigod of incalculable power. VIKINGDOM is the first installment of an epic trilogy based on the ancient Vikings myth and history.

Craig Fairbrass (BBC’s Eastenders, House of the Rising Sun), Natassia Malthe (Bloodrayne 2 & 3), and Jon Foo (Tekken) fill the remaining principal roles.   7’1” tall, real life giant, Conan Stevens (playing Azog in the current production of Peter Jackson’s The Hobbit), will play the invincible villain, Thor.

Massive sets and cutting edge digital technology will form the cornerstone of this production in creating incredible worlds that are a hyper-real combination of historical fact and fantasy. Apart from the stylized action choreography, extensive production design and visual effects, my emphasis has always been on the structure… fast paced story telling, and character development. I would like the audience to be awed not only with the production value of the film but most importantly the substance of the story.

With visual comparisons and production methods akin to blockbuster films such as 300 and The Lord of the Rings, Vikingdom promises to create a franchise that truly appeals to a wide audience, both regionally and globally.

Korean Inspired movie from Malaysia, ” Istanbul, Aku Datang”

12 Jan

 

A trip to Istanbul inspired writer-actor-host Rafidah Abdullah to make a Korean style comedy movie titled “Istanbul Aku Datang!”.

“While writing the script of the movie I didn’t imagine an urban love story at all. Instead, I imagined a Korean drama styled movie where the actress was cute and that would play a major part in the movie,” explained Rafidah when she was met at the wrap party of the film recently.

Rafidah also added that even though the film which is directed by Bernard Chauly portrays a love story that thugs the heartstrings along with its bittersweet elements through the mystical backdrop of Istanbul.

Red Films production who is known for adding an emphasis of quality in their features are also known for producing films such as “Gol & Gincu” and “Pisau Cukur”.

“Because of our prior ties of working together, it was easy for us to work again to create a film that satisfies our tastes,” added Lina Tan, the producer of the film.

The Grand Brilliance and Red Films production had a production budget of RM 1.7 million and had undergone a month of filming in Istanbul with the help of a Turkish crew.

“Istanbul Aku Datang!” stars Lisa Surihani and Beto Kusyairy. Singers Aizat Amdan and Tomok also make their debut into acting with this film.
