Good news for your brain cells: soon, you won't have to deal with bad local movies being shown in the cinemas anymore.
National Film Development Corporation Malaysia (Finas) chief executive officer Ahmad Idham Ahmad Nadzri told Astro Awani
that the government agency will introduce a new compulsory screening module and set up a guideline for the national film industry.
He said the move is to resolve the problems of films that do not do well in the box office or suffer from bad reviews.
“The issue of films which cannot sell is because we do not have a guideline for films to be screened in cinemas. In Hollywood, not all movies are screened, but in Malaysia, every film must be screened in the cinemas,” he said.
Ahmad did not reveal when the guideline will be introduced, but he told the news portal that it will be "in the near future".
We hear your shouts of glee, fellow Malaysian moviegoers!
