8 Feb – The new action movie, "Coast Guard Malaysia: Ops Helang" recently made RM2.5 million at the box office in just four days.
Sharing the good news recently, producer Muhammad Hady stated that he was originally worried that the movie would not make a big dent as they were quite slow to begin promotion, but was happy to see that the movie began to pick up since day one.
"We only begun promotion a week or two before the release, and held the gala a day before," he said. "There has been a big momentum since day one, and most theatres had to add more screening time to accommodate the audiences. I am happy to hear this."
Hady also hopes that the movie will keep up momentum and that it will be screened for a long period of time.
The movie, which was made on a RM13 million budget, was directed by the late Pitt Haniff and stars Saharul Ridzwan, Adlin Aman Ramlie, Julia Farhana and Hazaman among others.
It is a collaboration between Hady's Flying Deals, Arie Zaharie Production, as well as the Malaysian Maritime Enforcement Agency, and revolves around the life of a Malaysian Maritime Special Action and Rescue Team (STAR Team) Officer, namely Maritime Lieutenant Hafiz (played by Saharul), who wants to start a new life on an island after suffering from Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD).
