Richard Gutierrez has a new leading lady for the upcoming horror film “Patient X” and she’s none other than the sexiest woman in the country!
Heart Evangelista is supposed to be Richard’s leading lady for the role but she can no longer continue to shoot the film, specially the physically demanding scenes, because she got ill.
To meet the screening schedule of the movie this upcoming Halloween, GMA Films and Viva Films replaced Heart with Cristine Reyes.
This is the first time that Richard and Cristine will work together for a same project. Even when Cristine was still a kapuso, she hadn’t had the chance to work with GMA’s top actor. And this is the chance and she’s happy that the producers picked her as replacement.
Patient X is a suspense thriller directed by Yam Laranas (Sigaw, The Echo). It is set to premiere this upcoming Halloween.
Getting an “A” from the Cinema Evaluation Board these days is like buying a soda from the nearest sari-sari store, it’s easy. But Kimmy Dora is a film that truly deserves it.
Some films get an “A” from CEB and a thumbs down from the critics. Some films get an “A” from CEB, thumbs up from the critics but ended up “flop” at the box-office.
This time, an indie film with a commercial format like Kimmy Dora, which got an “A” from the CEB and a “thumbs up” from the critics, could potentially be a box-office hit.
From the success of its premiere night at SM Megamall last Tuesday, Kimmy Dora is posed to be the kind of film to conquer all – critics, the government incentive program and the movie-goers. It just need to surpass the P100 million mark and a sequel could not be far behind.
This makes Eugene Domingo as the next big comedy star! Her talent in making people laugh shines throughout the film. Furthermore, she is now being labeled as the “Diamond Comedy Queen”!
According to Eugene, “Flattered ako sa mga sinasabi nila, pero mas importante sa akin, aside sa mga titulo, ay ang kumita ang movie namin. Tulungan naman natin ang producer namin na si Piolo dahil nagsugal siya ng malaki for this project. Si Piolo at ang ilang kaibigan ang dahilan kung bakit may Kimmy Dora at gusto naming i-share ang project na ito sa marami.”
Kimmy Dora is now showing in more than 100 theaters nationwide INCLUDING SM Cinemas.
“…it’s a far better comedy than the mainstream establishment has produced in a long time,” Philbert Dy (Click the City)
