There simply aren’t enough movies combining local and foreign talents on the screen.
This is a sentiment which surfaces immediately upon absorbing My Stupid Boss, the latest project by award-winning Indonesian director Upi Avianto which pits Indonesian superstars against a Malaysian backdrop, complete with local actors filling in supporting roles.
LAST night, highly-anticipated Indonesian-Malaysian comedy My Stupid Boss premiered at Golden Screen Cinemas, Pavilion to a throng of fans hysterical over Indonesian film stars Reza Rahadian and Bunga Citra Lestari. The packed premiere even saw the likes of Fazura, Zizan Razak and Shaheizy Sam in the crowd, curious to watch their peers in celebrated Indonesian director Upi Avianto‘s latest effort.
Social media and nusantara media have been caught up with HBO Asia‘s Halfworlds since it was first announced earlier in the year. But fast forward several months later and we’ve now arrived at the premiere of the upcoming mini-series, which combines some of the strongest, young talent of the region with the Midas touch of renowned Indonesian director, Joko Anwar.
