The Diamond Star Maricel Soriano topbills Star Cinema’s 3rd offering for 2009 - a horror movie entitled “T2.”
In the tradition of horror films such as Feng Shui and Sukob, Star Cinema finally brings back the box-office director of horror movies, Mr. Chito Roño in his next horror movie project in the said film outfit.
The story is about a young girl (played by Mika dela Cruz, younger sister of actress Angelika dela Cruz) who lost her parents and then meets Claire (Maricel Soriano), a volunteer worker in an NGO for orphans. She is assigned to take Mica to some living relatives. She’s married to Derek Ramsay.
Also starring in Tenement 2 are Tetchie Agbayani, Camille Prats, Kai Brosas (as their neighbors in the tenement) and Eric Fructuoso (as Maricel’s driver).
According to Chito Roño, T2 is his most expensive horror film yet because of special effects. The last 11 minutes are all CGI set in the other world.
According to reports, John Lloyd Cruz and Malaysian actress Carmen Soo will have cameo roles in the movie.
Tenement 2 is Maricel Soriano’s fifth film with director Chito Roño and will hit theaters nationwide on April 11, 2009.

Star Cinema’s “You Changed My Life” starring box-office king and queen John Lloyd Cruz and Sarah Geronimo hits a record-breaking P27 million last Saturday to be on track of surpassing the P100 million mark on its first week of screening.
Today, March 3, is the 7th day of screening concluding the first week run of the romantic comedy helmed by Cathy Garcia-Molina. On it’s first day alone, You Changed My Life has earned an estimate of P18 million (without padding) according to Star Cinema Booking and Distribution Department.
Although the film outfit did not reveal the box-office outcome for Thursday, Friday and Sunday, they are optimistic that the movie will hit P100 million in box-office receipts on Monday.
Based from the public’s overwhelming response in theaters across the country last weekend, You Changed My Life is on track to surpass the earning of A Very Special Love, the no. 1 movie of 2008. The first John Lloyd Cruz-Sarah Geronimo starrer has grossed a total of P180 million.
Lead star John Lloyd Cruz and director Cathy Garcia Molina are both in the United States for the film’s screening there. SNN reported Monday night that the US screening was very successful as the tickets were all sold out in Los Angeles.
“Ang nakakalungkot may mga grupo na lumapit sa amin. From Arizona pa sila…hindi na sila nakapanood,” John Lloyd Cruz said.
After the successful launch of his tv series “Totoy Bato” on GMA, Robin Padilla will now star in the upcoming horror movie Sundo.
Sundo is an upcoming suspense-thriller movie directed by Topel Lee, the one who also helm the hit horror film Ouija starring Judy Ann Santos. The film changed its release date from October 22, 2008 to March 18, 2009 to make way for the Dingdong Dantes-Marian Rivera starrer, One True Love.
In Sundo, Robin Padilla plays Romano Iñiguez, a resigned military operative who possesses a third eye. Also starring in Sundo are Sunshine Dizon as Louella, Romano’s childhood friend who harbors affection for him; Rhian Ramos as Isabel, Romano’s younger sister; Katrina Halili as Kristina; Hero Angeles as Eric, Mark Bautista as Baste; and Glydel Mercado as Lumen.
Gist: Seven passengers on a trip to Manila escape death and their respective “sundo” by a twist of fate. Soon, they realize that the price they have to pay for gambling with the spirit of tragedy is the hardest and most ruthless battle they will ever come to face.
