Asian Cinema

Edinburgh University Press

This chapter explores remakes and omnibus films as specific forms of inter-Asian production. Although consideration has been paid to remakes of Asian cinema from Hollywood, there has been less attention paid to remakes from within Asia as a form of inter-Asian referencing. The chapter examines CJ Entertainment’s practice of regional localisation of its hit comedy Miss Granny (2014). The chapter also considers the resurgence of the omnibus film as a production practice targeted towards regional audiences.

Keywords:   Remakes, Omnibus films, Localisation, Miss Granny
