Singapore media entertainment and content company mm2 Entertainment has announced the release dates of a slate of Singapore films for 2020 and 2021. Number 1《男儿王》 will will lead a pipeline of films to be released over the coming year. The list of films includes comedies, dramas, horrors and thrillers - offering a wide variety of cinematic options.

“We are extremely excited to share this slate of Singapore-made movies, including the first local film to release in 2020. It has not been a good year for Singapore moviegoers, with the pandemic causing havoc to the releases to Hollywood and Asian movies. Every year there is a steady stream of new Singapore movies released in cinemas. This year however, due to the pandemic and the circuit breaker, there has not been any local releases to date. We are therefore proud to be releasing this slate of Singapore films, for Singaporeans,” says Mr Ng Say Yong, Chief Content Officer of mm2 Asia.
