14 Dec - "Mechamato Movie" has broken its record yet again by making RM10 million in just the first six days of its release.
The result is encouraging for both the producers and the industry, seeing that audiences were truly entertained by the movie - both kids and adults alike.
"Praise be to God, with the support of the Malaysian people, the movie successfully accumulated RM10 million in just six days all over the country. There are around 150 theatres currently showing the movie," said Nizam Abd Razak, the CEO of Monsta.
On the other hand, Astro Shaw's chief Raja Jastina Raja Arshad stated that they have received a lot of positive responses regarding the movie.
"The competition is stiff seeing that there are international movies showing as well. But we believe that the quality of our movie, the storyline and the cultural and heritage elements of the movie will enable Mechamato to continue to compete," she said.
The movie will continue showing throughout the school holidays. At the same time, Mechamato himself will be showing up at selected locations throughout the promotional period.
