17 Apr – No thanks to the pandemic for slightly delaying its release by almost three years, Malaysia's most explosive cop action blockbuster franchise Polis Evo returns to complete its trilogy with "Polis Evo 3", set to be unleashed in cinemas nationwide in Malaysia, Singapore, Brunei starting 25 May!
"Polis Evo 3" brings back Malaysia's hottest buddy cop duo Zizan Razak as Inspector Sani and Shaheizy Sam as Inspector Khai as the mainstays of the Polis Evo franchise. The Polis Evo family also expands with the addition of big names such as Sharnaaz Ahmad, Nora Danish, Syafiq Kyle, Douglas Lim, Farali Khan, Fauzi Nawawi, Fezrul Khan and Eyka Farhana in this film.
The franchise showcased the abilities and unique direction of different directors; the first "Polis Evo" (2015) was directed by Ghaz Abu Bakar and grossed RM18 million, "Polis Evo 2" (2018) by Joel Soh and Andre Chiew grossed RM25 million.
And for the third instalment, director Syafiq Yusof takes on the task of directing yet another daring attempt in the action-comedy genre. This time, "Polis Evo 3" promises to offer more action, more drama, and more explosiveness, and it also features the expansion of the Polis Evo family through new characters who will join in the fun and complement the 'bromance' between Inspector Khai and Inspector Sani.
When met at the "Polis Evo 3" press conference at Six In The City, Petaling Jaya, late last week, director Shafiq enthuses that the film is different. "Of course I want to bring something different in the third movie "Polis Evo", but I don't want to make this movie better than the first and second movies. I want this film to have its own impact and for the audience to see that this is Syafiq Yusof's film.
Composed by legendary rap composer Malique, the theme song "Ayuh" is performed by the rapper, Kmy Kmo and Aman Ra, as well as powerhouse vocalist, Ernie Zakri. Marking Malique's first song after six years, the song perfectly encapsulates the vibe and the action of "Polis Evo 3".
"Police Evo 3" sees the partnership of Astro Shaw with Skop Productions and TGV Pictures. It is hoped that the return of the franchise after five years will provide excitement to fans and audiences, both locally and abroad, as well as to the local film industry, said Raja Jastina Raja Arshad, Executive Producer of "Polis Evo 3" and Vice President of the Malay Nusantara Business and Head of Astro Shaw.
