Subaye's next movie is called DaYouCun (translated, "Very Promising", or "Bright Future"). The movie stars 5 or 6 "A"-List Chinese actors, it has been selected to run during the New Year's Holiday Season, and based on reviews, may come in first at the box office (referred to as the "Dark Horse"). One of the stars is a major martial arts expert and they are calling this his "breakout" role. (The new Jackie Chan?)
The story is basically a feature-length INFOMERCIAL for Subaye.com. It deals with a company trying to make it big, but only finding success in the big city after dropping it's brick-and-mortar expansion plans and opening an online webshop. The movie shows long lines of people trying unsuccessfully to shop at the local mall, and they even make fun of themselves by reliving the embarassment at the Google signing ceremony. The Subaye exec knocks over the pyramid of glasses that had just been filled from the top down. You can see the Subaye logo in the background in the movie shot.
Here is a still from the movie that shows the Subaye logo in a different part of the movie... http://subaye.com/Upload/6TKSDRDO3KB4CJGM/2009-9-27-11-57-36-633896494565366250.jpg
A Subaye subsidiary, MGI, will get $1.1M in product placement ad revenue once the movie is released.
