Which is why Ong Kuo Sin's Judgment Day / 世界末日, is that breath of fresh air and shot of the unexpected that the community here firmly requires. From the trailers, one can see the story revolving around the what if scenario of the world ending in three days. You can argue that this could have been done to death as well in films such as Melancholia and Seeking a Friend for the End of the World which couldn't be more explicit than that, but having a familiar cast challenged outside of their comfort zones with roles they don't normally get, is interest piqued.
This could possibly be the final feature film that the late John Cheng / Ah Nan could star in, while I'm also intrigued by the restrained performance that Henry Thia puts in, as a family man who has a secret to tell his loved ones. Again, while this is nothing new (Glen Goei already touched on this as far back as Forever Fever), but there's nothing like shaking things up a little in recent times.
Interesting local films ahead, people!
