Every woman has a secret love affair with red shoes. Girls of all ages, shapes and sizes own at least one red pair.
In 1986, in the evening of the People Power Revolution in the Philippines, 10-year-old Lucas Munozca catches sight of the First Lady’s 3000 pairs of shoes at the Presidential Palace and decides to steal a pair of red shoes.
That’s how the excitement begins. The battle of the networks sizzles in a love-able way as GMA prime timer Marvin Agustin stars as Lucas who falls in love with tall, sosyal Bettina, played by ABS-CBN luminary Nikki Gil. Marvin and Nikki loved the script so much; they made time to match their schedules with each other. Together they take the audience on a merry chase of tumbling emotions and silly notions. It is Marvin’s and Nikki’s first pairing and Nikki Gil’s first ever starring role.
“The Red Shoes” is a love story, plain and simple, but one set against an intriguing chapter of Philippine history, produced by Unitel, the group that made the box office hit “Crying Ladies” and “Santa Santita.”
Unitel President and CEO Tony Gloria was instantly drawn to the story when Marvin Agustin and Director Raul Jorolan presented it to him. He wasted no time in getting the wheels turning to make the project a reality.
“The story unfolds through three decades as we tell Lucas’ story,” Jorolan lets on. “Young, resolute and in love, there is nothing that will stop him from pursuing his goals – not even committing an act amidst the chaos and confusion of the 1986 People Power revolution – all in the name of love.”
The movie also stars Liza Lorena, Tessie Tomas, Iwa Moto, Tetchie Agbayani, Monica Llamas and Tirso Cruz III. It will be shown in local theaters on March 10, 2010. To get pumped up by “The Red Shoes,” visit www.theredshoes.com.ph.
Surprised by the un-inclusion of Star Cinema’s “Miss You Like Crazy,” the movie starring John Lloyd Cruz and Bea Alonzo, sa official tally ng Box Office Mojo for the week of February 24-28, 2010, AccessPinoy asked our sources who’s knowledgeable sa Pinoy box office. Pinadalhan namin ng email ang aming mga contacts, and one replied just minutes ago with this information:
Star Cinema didn’t provide figures for the second week of “Miss You Like Crazy” except to say that the movie already reached the P100-M mark. As to the actual figure or how many days it took the movie to reach the century milestone, they didn’t say. Sorry, these are the only info I can give you.
If that’s really the case, then good news nga ito for the fans of Bea Alonzo and John Lloyd Cruz who’ve been wanting to know kung blockbuster ba talagang maituring ang pelikula. Now that it has reached the P100 million box office mark, then we can all agree na blockbuster hit nga ito!
Pero may mga tanong pa rin kaming hindi nasasagot, and we’re sure na tinatanong din ng aming mga readers. Bakit wala sa official results ng BOM ang pelikula, gayong nariyan naman ang resulta ng Paano Na Kaya, the preceding Star Cinema film starring Gerald Anderson and Kim Chiu? Ano’ng nagyari, was it just a case of “nakalimutan lang” ng BOM ang pagsali sa pelikula? Bakit walang press release ang Star Cinema about the movie? Kung di pa namin kinulit, walang information tayong malalaman at maipalabas.
BTW, Paano Na Kaya already grossed P80.9 million in the box office after 5 weeks in theaters.
