File - Blue Elephant part 2.
CAIRO – 7 December 2019: Successful Egyptian movie '’El Feel-el Azra’a'’ (The Blue Elephant) part 2 will be screened exclusively on Watch iT platform in the upcoming period.
In the first time in the history of Egyptian cinema Blue Elephant P II starring Karim Abdel Aziz exceeds the LE 100 M mark in revenues since its screening in cinemas on July 25.
The "Blue Elephant PII" has been able to achieve the difficult equation since its release in cinemas 8 weeks ago, which has reaped huge revenues at the box office, and at the same time met with great success and popularity on the level of critics and the public.
This is an achievement several films have been unable to achieve in years. This is due to the use of the most important elements behind the camera while providing all necessary means for success the film needs in terms of productivity until it finally came out in this distinctive form.
The makers of the Egyptian movie will present part 3 from the movie; this was clear from the open ending of part 2.
The film promo has recorded more than 9 million views directly after its release. Famed Egyptian actor Karim Abdel Aziz appeared in the promo fighting with beloved star Nelly Karim, stirring a lot of curiosity about the events of the new movie.
Part 2 stars the same cast of the first movie, led by director Marwan Hamed and author Ahmed Mourad. Tunisian actress Hend Sabry joins the cast, along with Jordanian actor Eyad Nassar who joins as a guest of honor.
Produced by Synergy, the sequel follows the huge success of the first part, which grossed more than LE 35 million when released in 2014, a record number in the last decade in Egyptian cinema.
The first movie tells the story of Yehia, a psychiatrist who returns to Al-Abbasiya mental hospital after 5 years of self-imposed isolation, where he meets an old friend with a dark past and uncovers many surprises that turn his life upside down.
The events develop in a drama, horror, mystery context. Part 2 takes place 5 years later, as Dr. Yehia has married Lobna, played by Karim.
The events of "Blue Elephant P II" begin 5 years after the events of the first part, where Dr. Yahya Rashed is summoned to the Dangerous Cases Section.
There he meets those who manipulate his life and that of his family. This pushes Yahya to try the ‘blue elephant’ pill (a form of Ecstasy or MDMA) in an attempt from him to deal with the mysteries he finds himself facing.
The films are adapted from Ahmed Mourad's best-selling book of the same name that was released in 2012. The book was shortlisted for the International Prize for Arabic Fiction (IPAF) in 2014.
