Hong Kong movie Over My Dead Body is set to start showing at Malaysian cinemas starting June 29.

The black comedy starring Teresa Mo, Ronald Cheng and two members of Cantopop boyband Mirror – Edan Lui and Jer Lau – is already a hit in Hong Kong since premiering there in April.

It's reported that it has earned HKD20mil (RM11.7mil) thanks to the film's relatable topic that's presented in an exaggerated manner.

Over My Dead Body tells of residents of an apartment building who would do anything and everything to ensure their homes' market value doesn't go down.

Unfortunately, this includes not reporting a dead body they find in their building – which leads to all kinds of shenanigans, including trying to bury the corpse in another neighbourhood.

One review describes the film as director Ho Cheuk Tin’s "silly, harmless and even slightly hopeful feature" that highlights "Hong Kong’s absurd property market and messy political climate".

Check out the trailer and stills from the movie.
