‘Sheriff’ may beat ‘Mat Kilau’ at box office

THE movie Sheriff directed by Syafiq Yusof looks set to earn more than smash hit Mat Kilau: Kebangkitan Pahlawan, which was directed by his brother Syamsul Yusof.

Kosmo! reported that Sheriff grossed RM11.4mil within three days of its premiere.

The thriller, which stars Zul Ariffin, Datuk Aaron Aziz, Syafiq Kyle, Azira Shafinaz and Elizabeth Tan, is about a narcotics officer named Nazri, played by Shafiq himself, who has to deal with a drug syndicate.

Sheriff grossed RM6.4mil on its second day, compared with the RM1.8mil taken in by Mat Kilau on its second day.

Mat Kilau currently holds the record of the local movie with the highest box office receipts, at RM97mil.

> A farm with 350 Harumanis mango trees in Terengganu went up in smoke in the blink of an eye, Sinar Harian reported.

“I’m upset. None of them could be saved,” said owner Tengku Mohammad Kamal Hishamudin, 29.

He said the three-year-old trees had begun to flower for the first time and he had expected to harvest the fruit in May next year.

His losses were estimated at RM200,000.

“I believe the fire was sparked by the high temperature.

“Prior to this, I suffered losses when the farm got flooded. I have to start everything from the bottom again,” he said.
