The film accomplished a number of "firsts" for the Asian American cinema that included being picked up by MTV Films/Paramount Pictures for $1M, distributed to 400 theaters nationwide (a list of the theaters where "Better Luck Tomorrow" can be seen are listed at the APA Film Poll Section), etc. while receiving acclaim from many American movie critics.
In its first week, the "street promotion" achieved a "Per Screen Average" of $30,000+ which was the highest numbers for any MTV Films project. The success of Better Luck Tomorrow (BLT) will provide one barometer on the state of Asian American Cinema.
PLOT: Suburbia, USA - 16-year-old Ben Manibag (Parry Shen) is a junior determined to get into one of the nation's most prestigious universities. Civic-minded and responsible honor students by day, Ben and his best friend Virgil (Jason Tobin) have earned the complete trust of their parents with their good grades and their model behavior. But with that trust comes too much freedom.
Bored by suburban life and no longer satisfied with simply staying ahead of the grading curve, Ben and Virgil throw themselves into increasingly risky extracurricular activities, in contrast to the wholesome ones listed on their college applications. With Virgil's cousin Han (Sung Kang) and the captain of the academic decathlon team Daric (Roger Fan), a most unlikely crew is formed, and the foursome begins earning their own "financial aid," under the pretense of free enterprise.
In this tale of adolescent discontent, the fast-track to the American Dream exacts a heavy toll in a suburban landscape of moral collapse.
MTV Films presents BETTER LUCK TOMORROW directed by Justin Lin, and written by Ernesto M. Foronda, Justin Lin and Fabian Marquez. The film stars Parry Shen, Jason Tobin, Sung Kang, Roger Fan, John Cho, and introduces Karin Anna Cheung and features a cameo appearance from Jerry Mathers.
BETTER LUCK TOMORROW is produced by Justin Lin, Ernesto M. Foronda and Julie Asato for Trailing Johnson Productions, along with executive producers Gustavo Spoliansky and Michael Manshel for Hudson River Entertainment, and co-produced by Joan Huang for Cherry Sky Films.
