Fun US Trailer for Cheesy Sci-Fi 'Maika: The Girl from Another Galaxy'
"A stranded alien girl who must find her lost friend." Well Go USA has revealed the official US trailer for a cheesy Vietnamese sci-fi kids movie titled Maika: The Girl from Another Galaxy, opening in theaters this June. This already premiered at the 2022 Sundance Film Festival earlier this year, playing in the Kids section. After a meteor falls to earth, 8-year-old Hung meets an alien girl from the planet Maika, searching for her lost friend. The alien girl helps Hung make new friends and heal a broken heart. But danger lurks everywhere. Together, they go on an adventure to help Maika find a way home and escape from some local criminals. The fun film stars Phu Truong Lai, Diep Anh Chu, Tin Tin, Ngoc Tuong, and Kim Nha. I actually watched this during Sundance and it's enjoyable (my review), even if it is so cheesy and obvious, because there's a strange kind of charm to it. Definitely meant for kids but some adults might enjoy it, too.
