PETALING JAYA: This year is a golden year for the Malaysian film industry as three local films have set a new high by raking in more than RM30mil each at the box office, almost doubling the RM18mil record set by Abang Long Fadil 2 last year.

Horror film Munafik 2 led the year’s highest grossing local films, making RM42mil at the box office, with horror-comedy Hantu Kak Limah coming second at RM36mil and military action film PASKAL the Movie coming in third with RM30mil.
