'Apple' A Sell-Out at Sneaks Last Weekend
NOV 3, 2011 – Distributors 20th Century Fox reports that its sneak previews of You Are The Apple Of My Eye had full houses at almost all locations nationwide last weekend (Oct 28-30, 2011).
"Cinemas have also been receiving overwhelming queries about the movie from all over the country and some sites even played the show 'unofficially'," a Fox Press release said.
It said that in view of the overwhelming response, another round of sneak previews is available at the same 14 locations for this coming long weekend from Nov 4 to 7. The cinemas are:
TGV: Sunway Pyramid, Bukit Tinggi Klang, Metro Prima Kepong, Wangsa Walk, Tebrau City JB, 1st Avenue Penang.
GSC: Mid Valley, Pavilion KL, 1 Utama PJ, Gurney Plaza Penang, Sunway Carnival Penang.
MBO: Subang Parade, VIVA Home Cheras, KSL City JB.
You Are The Apple Of My Eye is a romantic comedy based on the best-selling novel by Giddens Ko, who also made his directorial debut. Ever since it opened at the Hong Kong Summer International Film Festival in August and reigned at the Taiwan box-office for more than 40 days, there has been a clamour among Chinese youths for it to be shown in Malaysia.
The coming-of-age movie, starring Ko Chen-Tung as protagonist Giddens, and Michele Chen as the 'apple of his eye' Shen Chia-Yi (above), recalls Giddens' student pranks and his earnest pursuit of Chia-Yi. It has a good balance of laughs and romance.
