Churp Churp Exclusive Screening – Contraband

   Category: Contests, Events, Malaysia |

Hey, Churpers!

We’re pretty excited about the arrival of 2012 and guess what; the excitement of welcoming the New Year is going to be thrilled by Mark Wahlberg’s latest action thriller film “Contraband”. For you Churpers who enjoy watching thrillers, this is the movie you shouldn’t miss out because it’s Mark Wahlberg we’re talking about! He’s pretty awesome in The Fighter so we can’t wait to catch him in Contraband this time around!

(This movie is rated 18.)

Synopsis: Mark Wahlberg leads the cast of Contraband, a fast-paced thriller about a man trying to stay out of a world he worked so hard to leave behind and the family he’ll do anything to protect. Set in New Orleans, the film explores the cutthroat underground world of international smuggling—full of desperate criminals and corrupt officials, high-stakes and big payoffs—where loyalty rarely exists and death is one wrong turn away.

Chris Farraday (Wahlberg) long ago abandoned his life of crime, but after his brother-in-law, Andy (Caleb Landry Jones), botches a drug deal for his ruthless boss, Tim Briggs (Giovanni Ribisi), Chris is forced back into doing what he does best—running contraband—to settle Andy’s debt. Chris is a legendary smuggler and quickly assembles a crew with the help of his best friend, Sebastian (Ben Foster), to head to Panama and return with millions in counterfeit bills.

Things quickly fall apart and with only hours to reach the cash, Chris must use his rusty skills to successfully navigate a treacherous criminal network of brutal drug lords, cops and hit men before his wife, Kate (Kate Beckinsale), and sons become their target. “Contraband” hits the big screen in Malaysia 15th January, 2011.  

 

Feeling the adrenaline rush already, or have you not just yet? Either ways, check out the trailer for the highlights of the movie!

All thanks to United International Pictures, Churp Churp will be giving away tickets to our exclusive screening of Contraband to 40 lucky Churpers and their friend to be among the firsts to watch this movie prior to its official release date.

Merry Christmas a Happy New Year!

   Category: Behind the Scenes, Highlights, Malaysia |

Tis the season for love! We’ve had a wonderful 2011 all thanks to the support and love from YOU guys and we’d like to take this opportunity to show our appreciation to you for being with us through 2011.

Merry Christmas from us at Churp Churp! We wish you the best in all you do and bundles of joy and happiness in your life.

How will you be celebrating this season of greetings, Churpers? Christmas is a season beyond exchanging of gifts, it is also a time for us to cherish the friends and family we have so spend some quality time with them this season. Make sure the people you care of know how much you love them, take this time to let go of all ego and show them how much you care.

For us, the Churp Churp team had a few gatherings, one with our brothers and sisters outside of Malaysia and a cosier one with the Malaysian team where we had a pot luck and exchanged gifts. At our regional Christmas celebration, we were surprised to find how big we have grown in this short span of time!

Besides that, our cosy Christmas pot luck was so much fun as well and a great time for us to let loose and enjoy each other’s company outside of the office.  The most thoughtful of gifts were exchanged that night and we all had a blast.

We hope your Christmas time this year is one to remember. If you would like to make a Christmas shout out to anyone or to our community, tweet us by mentioning @Churp2 in any of your Christmas tweet-greetings and we will retweet your tweets!

 

Cheers,

The Churp Churp Team
