一路有你” Brings Laughter To The Screen on 30th January 2013



After a long wait, director 周青元 (Chiu ) have finally come back with his latest movie 一路有你which will be shown in cinema from 30th January 2014 onwards. This is the third movie from Astro after 2011 “大日子Woohoo!” and 2012 “天天好天”.

一路有你will be composed of elements from the previous two movies including the warmth, touching moments as well as humors and laughter which can present the value of family bonding and human interaction into a film that will definitely enlighten the audience. This movie will be featuring the beautiful sceneries from Cameron highlands, Penang, Kedah, Malacca and Johor.

The story is about a conservative uncle, 全叔叔 who has been living a retiree’s life peacefully while anticipating for his daughter 美蓉 return after she has gone overseas for her studies. When his daughter returns to home, she brings along a foreigner who is actually her fiancé, 班杰明back to home. He doesn’t like 班杰明 that much and he has objected his daughter to marry 班杰明. If they really want to get married, 班杰明 has to organize the Chinese style wedding and has to follow全叔叔 to send the invitations to the relatives. How will the journey end up to be? Let’s find out this upcoming January 2014.

This movie is filmed over many states in Malaysia and some of the scenes were documented from the real Chinese cultural celebration at different states. Another extra fact about this movie is, there is a lot of celebrities cameo appearance. However, the celebrities have acted more like “kelefeh” (extras) in this film while the real local citizens from different states were the real main characters in this movie. 一路有你has been premiered in the recent 2013 桃园电影节 and has received many positive remarks. In fact, it has become the movie with 2nd best ticket sales during the festival in Taiwan. This has made Director周青元 more confident about the movie and he hopes that the similar outcome can be achieved in Malaysia too.




As a treat to the audience, Astro has also announced that there will be a premiere of this movie 一路有你on 18th January 2013 at 11 different places. The whole premiere event will be documented and broadcasted LIVE for the Astro audiences. The documentary will also include the LIVE interview of director 周青元 as well as the celebrities who will be present during the event.
