20th Century Fox to open theme park in Malaysia

American film studio 20th Century Fox will open its first ever theme park, the Twentieth Century Fox World, at Malaysia’s Resort World Genting in 2016.

Resort World Genting is an entertainment hub which also host the only legalised casino in the country and one of the world’s biggest hotels (by room numbers). It also had a theme park which is now closed for the the upgrade.

Not sure if it’s the right choice, I always thought we have too many theme parks in the region. But the success of Universal Studios in Singapore proves me wrong, and the LegoLand in southern Malaysia seems to be doing reasonable well too.

Trailer for Hollywood film Life of Pi – latest work by Academy Award winning Taiwanese-American director Ang Lee – which is based on the novel of the same name by French-Canadian author Yann Martel. The 3D movie is opening on November 21.

Official synopsis from Fox Movies… “Life of Pi is about a young man who survives a tragic disaster at sea and is hurtled into an epic journey of adventure and discovery. While marooned on a lifeboat, he forms an amazing and unexpected connection with the ship’s only other survivor… a fearsome Bengal tiger.”

Not interested with the plot to be honest, but the visual effects look stunning. Suraj Sharma plays the main lead… the fact that a 19-year-old Indian teenager is making his acting debut in a huge Hollywood production is an amazing story itself.
