Comedy Drama Film “YOLO”, China’s Biggest Box Office Hit of 2024, Coming to Philippine Cinemas April 17, 2024

Get ready to laugh, cry and be inspired by "YOLO", the comedy drama that broke records in China when it opened during the Lunar New Year holiday. Sony Pictures recently acquired the international distribution rights to the film, and it will open in Philippine cinemas, via Columbia Pictures, on April 17, 2024. Directed by Jia Ling, "YOLO" is the biggest Chinese grossing film so far for 2024, earning a massive $475 million at  the global box office to date.

"YOLO" tells the story of Le Ying (played by Director Jia Ling), who has been staying at home for many years doing nothing in particular. After graduating from college and working for a while, Le Ying chooses to withdraw from society, closing herself off from social circles, which she believes is the best way to “reconcile” with herself. Then one day, after several twists of fate, she decides to live life in a different way. In cautiously venturing into the outside world, Le Ying meets boxing coach Hao Kun (Lei Jia Yin), who just may change her life.

The film was written and directed by lead star Jia Ling, who became the highest-grossing female director in China in 2021 with her directorial debut film "Hi, Mom" ($839 million at the global box office), which, like "YOLO", she also wrote and starred in. Jia Ling reportedly lost 110 pounds (50 kilograms) for her role in the film, inspiring a fitness and sports craze among its audience.
