The Mermaid will Premier Exclusively on CELESTIAL MOVIES (ASTRO Channel 322)

The Mermaid is a film that tells the story of a playboy businessman (Deng Chao) who falls in love with a mermaid, Shan (Lin Yun) who was sent to assassinate him. I'm sure majority of you had watched it during Chinese New Year because upon release, this film had broke numerous box office records. Me and my Little Angels had watched it twice. Once during CNY celebration early this year and our second time just recently when TGV AEON Klebang launched free movie tickets for all its blockbuster movies and now, it will premiere exclusively on CELESTIAL MOVIES (ASTRO Channel 322) on Sunday, 2nd October at 9p.m.
The Mermaid is a 2016 Chinese-Hong Kong science-fiction, fantasy and romantic comedy that was directed, co-written and co-produced by Stephen Chow and this is his tenth directorial effort. The movie was ranked as the No. 1 Chinese movie with box office earnings of RM7,025,381 in Malaysia alone and was also the highest grossing film of all time in China. 
Stephen Chow was inspired by Hans Christian Andersen's fairy tale of "The Little Mermaid" to produce this film and wanted to make it a modern interpretation of the story. Another came from his childhood where he lived by the sea and always wondered what life was like under the sea.
If you think that it is easy to become an actor or actress, then you're wrong. Just imagine that Deng Chao and Lin Yun ended up eating a total of 150 roasted chickens during a multiple takes of an eating scene just to ensure they got the best quality shot. Wow... If I were them, then no roasted chickens for me for at least 3 months. Ha ha ha...
The moral of the story that we learned from the movie is, Liu Xuan's development project had a direct impact on the merpeople and had killed many of them. He managed to save Shan by sending her back to the ocean so she could escape from this and learning from his mistakes, Xuan then set up a scholarship for research on environmental protection.
