‘Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow’ Disqualified from MMFF


Regal Films’ “Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow” has been disqualified in major categories of this year’s Metro Manila Film Festival (MMFF) awards night.

According to MMFF executive chairman Francis Tolentino, the board disqualified the Maricel Soriano-Gabby Concepcion starrer in winning major awards in this year’s MMFF because Regal Films changed the pre-approved cast and storyline of the movie and it is against the rules of the festival.

“Final na po. Ibig sabihin ay disqualification from major awards including Best Picture, Best Director, Best Screenplay at Gatpuno Villegas Cultural awards,” said Tolentino in an interview by ABS-CBNNews.com.

“Ang vioation po ay they deviated (from the script). Under the rule kung ano ang approved, hindi na po dapat palitan,” he added.

Producer Lily Monteverde claims that Regal advised the MMFF committee about the changes in the film but Tolentino said otherwise.

“Hindi po sila nag-advise. Nagsabi lang sila ng change sa casting pero sa script hindi sila nag-advise. Nag-advise sila ng November 23 sa cast. Pero the script po ay nagbago,” Tolentino said.

This means “Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow” will only be competing for the technical categories like Best Sound, Best Editing, Best Cinematography, etc., in the awarding ceremony which is happening tonight, December 28.

SEGUNDA MANO


The official movie poster of Kris Aquino’s Metro Manila Film Fest entry “Segunda Mano” has been released! And I must say that it is the worst horror movie poster I’ve seen in the recent years. It’s too minimal and the poster itself doesn’t even give you any hints on what the movie is going to be about. Well that is aside from the bag replacing “A” in the title that gives intrigue to the movie. This is actually better off if divided and made into character posters for the three main characters of Segunda Mano movie.

If I were to do the poster, I would have a photo of Kris Aquino (Mabel) looking curious while staring suspiciously at the bag on a table dripping with water. And in the reflection, is a hand trying to reach Mabel’s neck to strangle her. Behind are either two shadowy entities or simply Dingdong and Angelica Panganiban with blank expressions. And a couple of items around that blends with the kind of horror Segunda Mano promises to offer.

Forgive me if I am ranting now but they’re making it obvious that they are banking on these three actors faces for the film to become a hit. I like how the faces looked like moon or aliens from afar but the blood looked so fake and all. The poster is mostly all black!! Don’t you guys have imagination??

I hope the movie is going to be a good one though, and while there’s still 22 days left before this movie opens I hope the trailer isn’t as blank as the poster! That’s all.

‘My Househusband: Ikaw Na!’ Poised for Major Wins in MMFF 2011 Awards’ Race


In the tradition of “Kasal, Kasali, Kasalo” and “Sakal, Sakali, Saklolo”, Jose Javier Reyes teams up with real-life couple Ryan Agoncillo and Judy Ann Santos once again for an MMFF entry that is a shoo-in for top awards as well as box-office race.

The campaign for the different in the coming Metro Manila Film Festival is in high gear and the word on the street as well as talk among industry insiders have it that “My Househusband: Ikaw Na!” is a shoo-in for the top awards as well as ruling the box office race.

Starring real life husband and wife Ryan Agoncillo and Judy Ann Santos, the film speaks volumes of success in so many aspects already. Joining the fray is undisputed comedy actress Eugene Domingo. All three premiere talents join outstanding chemistry with director par excellence Jose Javier Reyes.

The totality is undeniably a conglomeration of winners in so many levels that Best Picture, Best Director, Best Actor, Best Actress and Best Supporting Actress are some of the much-predicted trophies that can probably be associated to this film by OctoArts come awards’ night.

Ryan and Juday’s roles become even more realistic in their hands since they can relate to their characters in many aspects. Like married couple Mia and Rod, the lead characters in the movie, Judy Ann and Ryan know exactly what it’s like to raise kids, to balance career and family life, to stay best friends with your significant other even after tying the knot, and to be clear on priorities and keep sense of humor especially through thin.

“Househusband” director Joey Reyes notes that the two kept it “real” and that aside from their well-polished skill in acting, their portrayals have that extra something, “an almost instinctive element”. Ryan is a revelation here, the awarded director adds– and the latter should know. Direk Joey, after all, also directed Ryan in “Kutob” in 2006 where the actor-TV host nabbed a nomination at the FAP Awards for Best Supporting Actor.

As if the winning tandem of Ryan and Judy Ann isn’t enough, ace comedienne Eugene Domingo thickens the plot as Aida, a mistress who lives next door and eventually ends up as Rod’s BFF. Eugene finds it refreshing that the comedic style she was made to bring into the film is neither over the top nor subdued but “just right”.

Though she has starred in one film after the other this year, Eugene is glad to have added “My Househusband: Ikaw Na!” to her resume because it is the first time she plays a character who is best friends with a straight male. “Ibang iba ang point of view dahil dun and since I have very few straight male friends in real life, playing Aida was very refreshing and challenging.”

Indeed, given her track record and the way she speaks fondly of her role, her co-actors and the film “My Househusband: Ikaw Na!” just might put another trophy on Eugene’s shelf.

tying it all together so masterfully is Direk Joey: he has won awards from the Gawad Urian, Filipino Star Awards and in past MMFF. Many of his works such as “Minamahal Kita”, “Bakit Labis Kitang Mahal”, and “Kasal, Kasali, Kasalo” and “Sakal, Sakali, Saklolo” (which starred Judy and Ryan) are condsidered modern classics and going by gut feel, “My Househusband: Ikaw Na!” could lengthen that list.

And why not? Among all in this year’s MMFF, the subject matter of “My Househusband: Ikaw Na!” is most timely: about a married couple who has a non-trditional set up in which the husband takes care of the kids and in manning the house while the wife looks after putting food on the table. Along the way, situations aries that test the arrangement and their relationship. “Many men today are ‘househusband’ either by choice or circumstance and in this film, we show the hilarious side of it,” said he whose vision for the filmwas so clear to him that shooting the scenes were often a swift and smooth affair.

Great actors fleshing out a timeless and relatable story under superb direction—”My Househusband: Ikaw Na!” has got the gold in the bag.

“My Househusband: Ikaw Na!” is OctoArts Films’ entry to the 2011 MMFF. It opens on Christmas Day, December 25, 2011.

The romantic drama “No Other Woman” which stars Anne Curtis, Derek Ramsay and Cristine Reyes is said to surpass the P100 million mark last night according to Star Cinema’s AdProm director Roxy Liquigan.

“Tween Academy: Class of 2012″ beats “Way Back Home” at the box office.

The cast of “Tween Academy: Class of 2012” and “Way Back Home,” (at least most of them), are rivals on television in a sense that their weekly shows, “Tween Hearts” and “Good Vibes/Growing Up” are airing on the same timeslot every Sunday afternoon.

And now that they are promoted to the big screen, they are still being pitted with regards to box-office grosses of their films.

In the latest report of Box Office Mojo, “Tween Academy: Class of 2012” has grossed P32.23 million in 3 weeks. “Way Back Home,” on the other hand, only lasted for two weeks in theaters with a total gross of P25.78 million.

Even if we are to base the competition in the first two weeks tally for each movie, “Tween Academy” still wins by virtue of its P29.88 million box-office gross.

Meanwhile, the Star Cinema comedy movie “Wedding Tayo, Wedding Hindi” starring Toni Gonzaga and Eugene Domingo now has a box-office gross of P30.48 million.

The indie film “Zombadings,” on the other hand, has now raked-in P19.05 million in two weeks.

Kim Chiu to Star with Vilma Santos in the Horror Movie ‘The Healing’


Kim Chiu is set to work with the Star for All Seasons Vilma Santos in the upcoming Star Cinema horror movie “The Healing.”

“The Healing” is the working title of Gov. Vilma Santos and Kim Chiu starrer to be helmed by Chito Roño. It’s a horror film about Filipinos strong belief in the power of alternative medicine like albularyos (Village Healer), Shamans, and mambabarang (witches).

In an interview by Showbiz News Ngayon, Vilma Santos whose last movie was “In My Life” in 2009 said she accepted the role for “The Healing” because she finds the concept fresh and something that she hasn’t done before.

“I find this something new, unang una sa story. First time akong gagawa nito plus the fact na I will be doing a movie with Kim Chiu. Definitely that is something very important. At this point in time, what is important is chemistry plus a good project, a good director,” she said.

Kim Chiu, on the other hand, is excited to star with the iconic actress.

“Masaya ako and excited ako. Something new din for me to do a horror movie under Star Cinema and to work with Governor Vilma Santos,” she told SNN.

“The Healing” is scheduled to be released on the first quarter of 2012 by Star Cinema.

According to reports, the film was supposed to be a Vilma Santos and Sharon Cuneta starrer but the Megastar was later replaced by Kim Chiu that’s why a little adjustment has been made in the story of the film.

Sharon had to decline the role because her schedule will not meet the timetable for the filming of “The Healing.” She has a daily show “The Biggest Loser: Pinoy Edition” and she’s also about to film her grand reunion movie with Gabby Concepcion and probably with their daughter KC Concepcion also.

Giant Crocodile – Photo and Video of 21-Foot Crocodile Captured Alive in Agusan del Sur


A giant crocodile that measures around 21 foot or 6.4 meters was captured along a creek by crocodile farm staff and residents in Bunawan, Agusan del Sur province in the Philippines on Saturday, September 2.

According to the town Mayor Edwin Cox Elorde, the giant crocodile weighing about 2,370 pounds or 1,075 kilograms, it took almost 100 people to pull the giant crocodile off the creek. A crane was even used to lift the reptile into a truck and place it inside a fenced cage.

The mayor also said that they are planning to build an eco-tourism park for species found in a vast marshland in Agusan (an impoverished region about 515 miles southeast of Manila) showcasing the giant crocodile.

The giant crocodile was first seen by local farm villagers killing a water buffalo (carabao) last month and was also suspected of having attacked a fisherman who went missing in July. The reptile was being hunted by Philippine crocodile farm staff in the last three weeks.

After they spotted the giant reptile, villagers and the crocodile farm staff set four traps, which the giant crocodile destroyed. They then used sturdier traps using steel cables, one of which finally caught the giant crocodile late Saturday.

The record-breaking team up of Sarah Geronimo and John Lloyd Cruz returns on the big screen.

After the astounding success of their films A Very Special Love and You Changed My Life which earned for them the country’s Box-office King and Queen two consecutive years, John Lloyd Cruz and Sarah Geronimo are set to reunite in the upcoming movie with the working title “It Takes A Man and A Woman.”

“Oo, excited ako diyan kasi alam ko pong maraming mga supporters na naghihintay na makita kami ulit na magkatrabaho. Pero wala pa po akong naririnig na confirmation from my manager and Star Cinema. Basta ipagpre-pray natin kung ano ma yung will ni God, kung matuloy man yung project,” Sarah revealed.

The news about the Sarah-Lloydie reunion movie came out during the Star Cinema trade launch last June 16. The film outfit of ABS-CBN revealed that a third movie starring Sarah Geronimo and John Lloyd Cruz has been green-lighted.

Just like in their first two films, “It Takes A Man and A Woman” is going to be directed by Cathy Garcia-Molina. And rumor has it that the movie will also star Gerald Anderson, Sarah’s love interest in the 2011 hit romantic-movie “Catch Me, I’m In Love.”

‘Forever and a Day’ Earns P23.27 Million in First 5 Days


Star Cinema’s “Forever and a Day” starring Sam Milby and KC Concepcion had an opening weekend gross of P23.27 million at the box-office.

The Superhero movie Green Lantern topped Philippine box-office for the opening weekend of June 15 to 19 with a haul of P72 million, according to Box Office Mojo. And from the period of up to June 20 including the extended holiday for Jose Rizal’s 150th birth anniversary, the Ryan Reynolds-starrer accumulated P85.66 million, this one according to Warner Bros. Philippines.

The figure has now become the holder of the year’s biggest opening weekend for a Warner title surpassing “Red Riding Hood” and “Sucker Punch”, and the second-biggest of 2011 industry-wide outgrossing “X-Men: First Class,” “Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides” and “Thor”.

Placing second, on the other hand, is local romantic drama “Forever and a Day” with P23.27 million box-office gross in its first 5 days. This is really tough for the Sam Milby-KC Concepcion starrer because their film is vying against 7 Hollywood summer movies and getting the no. 2 spot is already commendable.

Meanwhile, “X-Men: First Class” settled for no. 3 after topping Philippine box-office for 2 weeks in a row. “Super 8″ is at no.4 while “Mr. Popper’s Penguins” starring Jim Carrey debuted at no. 5.

‘In the Name of Love’ Almost Beats Box-Office Record of ‘Catch Me…I’m In Love’


“In the Name of Love” starring Angel Locsin and Aga Muhlach hits P117.2-M in 5 weeks, just P3-million short of beating “Catch Me…I’m In Love” as the no. 1 Pinoy movie of 2011.

Star Cinema’s hit-drama movie may still be showing in selected theaters but it’s going to be very limited since their new offering, “Forever and a Day,” starring Sam Milby and KC Concepcion just opened yesterday.

“In the Name of Love” needs at least P3-million this week in order to beat the record of “Catch Me…I’m In Love” as the no. 1 Pinoy movie (so far) for 2011 with a gross receipts of P120.21 million. It’s possible but it’s gonna be difficult to achieve.

Capturing the no. 1 slot again, in Philippine box-office, is 20th Century Fox’s “X-Men: First Class” with a haul of P38.49 million last weekend. The film has now raked-in a total P128.1 million in 2 weeks.

Kung Fu Panda 2, on the other hand, maintains second position while debuting films “Super 8″ and “The Hangover Part II” settles for 3rd and 4th respectively.

Kung Fu Panda 2, by the way, has dislodged Thor as the biggest film in the Philippines so far for 2011. The Jack Black-starrer has already accumulated P188.7 million at the box-office in just 2 weeks!

‘Temptation Island’ Full Trailer Released


The full trailer for the upcoming sexy comedy film helmed by the phenomenal new director Chris Martinez has been released.

One of the reasons why “Temptation Island” is one of the must-see Pinoy movies of the year is because it is being directed by the sensational Chris Martinez.

I attended the launch of Nestle’s “Kasambuhay, Habambuhay” short film anthology last Friday at the Rockwell Cinema in Makati. Two of the 10 featured short films are helmed by Chris Martinez, The Howl and The Fussyket and Cooking Mo, Cooking Ko (CLICK HERE for related article). I must say, the said two films were both crowd-pleasers and perhaps the most applauded of the night.

This is the reason why I am excited for “Temptation Island.” I’m really looking forward to what will be Chris Martinez‘s attack in the helming of the Joey Gosiengfiao remake.

Take note that Martinez is also the director of the box-office hit “Here Comes the Bride,” the Cinemalaya winning-film “100″ and the outrageous “Gunaw” episode in “My Valentine Girls” starring Richard Gutierrez and Eugene Domingo. And include to his filmography the two “Habambuhay Kasambuhay” short films that I’ve mentioned. I can guarantee you, Martinez never disappoints!

Here is the official synopsis of the movie from Regal Films:

The film focuses on four young ladies from different social backgrounds and each for their own various reasons, enlists in the fictional “Miss Manila Sunshine Supermodel Search”.

The first of which is Virginia P. (Heart), a college student who entered the contest in order to earn independence from her family. Next is spoiled, rich socialite, Serafina F. (Lovi), whose every whim is attended to by her maid Maria (Rufa Mae), learned of the contest when fliers dropped from a helicopter interrupts her sunbathing at the family pool and out of sheer vanity decided to sign up. Thirdly, Pura K. (Solenn), while planning her 18th birthday party, when she and her mother argue over the budget, since her once rich family cannot afford the grand debut, Pura K. is forced to settle for a much simpler party. But during their argument, Bambi falls on her birthday cake; when sees the pageant’s TV spot, her frustrations over her current situation inspires her to join. Rounding up the group is Christina G. (Marian) a con-artist who plans to rig the contest by using her and her boyfriend’s sexuality to influence the judges into voting for her.

The ladies later became the finalists for the competition. En route to the evening gown competition, the ship they boarded catches fire, and the passengers scramble to evacuate. The four women, Maria, Joshua (the gay pageant coordinator played by John Lapuz) and his boyfriend (Mikael Daez), Umberto (one of the ship’s waiters played by Tom) and Alfredo (played by Aljur) land on a desert island.

Starring in “Temptation Island” remake are Marian Rivera, Heart Evangelista, Lovi Poe, Solenn Heussaff, Rufa Mae Quinto, John Lapus, Mikael Daez, Tom Rodriguez and Aljur Abrenica, with the special participation of Dennis Trillo.

It will open in theaters on July 6, 2011.

42nd Box-Office Entertainment Awards Official Winners: Bong Revilla, Vic Sotto & Ai Ai delas Alas

ai ai delas alas, bong revilla, toni gonzaga, vic sotto
Last March 16, it was reported here in Starmometer that the new box-office kings are Bong Revilla and Vic Sotto (tie) and the new box office queen is Ai Ai delas Alas. Now it’s official!

John Lloyd Cruz and Sarah Geronimo were dethroned. Vic Sotto, Bong Revilla and Ai-Ai delas Alas are 2010 Box-Office Kings & Queen of Philippine Movies.

Vic Sotto and Sen. Bong Revilla are tied as 2010 Box-Office Kings according to Guillermo Mendoza Memorial Awards committee. Sotto and Revilla’s MMFF collaboration “Si Agimat at Si Enteng Kabisote” was considered the top-grossing Pinoy movie of 2010 although its screening was extended until January 2011. The fantasy-comedy movie raked in a total of P159 million in its 2-week MMFF duration.

Ai Ai delas Alas, on the other hand, is the new Box-Office Queen because her film “Ang Tanging Ina Mo, Last Na ‘To!”, also an MMFF entry, has grossed P157 million in its 2-week MMFF duration. The said film was the second highest-grossing Pinoy movie of 2010.

Previous Box-Office King John Lloyd Cruz, who reigned for 3 consecutive years, had 2 box-office hits for 2010. His movie “My Amnesia Girl”, opposite Toni Gonzaga, raked in P144.8 million. His movie “Miss You Like Crazy”, opposite Bea Alonzo, had a total gross of P143.25 million. If you are to sum it up, John Lloyd Cruz delivered P288.05 million at the box-office for 2010.

Unfortunately, the titles Box-office King and Queen are being based from the highest-grossing single movie of a male and female lead that’s why John Lloyd Cruz was dethroned. However, John Lloyd is still awarded the Film Actor of the Year title while his “Miss You Like Crazy” leading lady, Bea Alonzo, is the Film Actress of the Year.

Meanwhile, Kapamilya stars Coco Martin and Toni Gonzaga are the Prince and Princess of Philippine Movies for the Star Cinema movies “Sa ‘Yo Lamang” and “My Amnesia Girl”.

Three Witty Directors + One Box-Office Leading Man + Four Lovely Ladies = One Sure Valentine Hit

eugene domingo, jillian ward, lovi poe, My Valentine Girls, rhian ramos, richard gutierrez, solenn heusaff
On February 9, Valentine movie goers will marvel at the genius of three renowned directors who created the country’s next Valentine hit, My Valentine Girls.

Directors Dominic Zapata, Andoy Ranay and Chris Martinez will wow the audience with the cinematic executions of their episodes in Richard Gutierrez’s Valentine trilogy.

Having worked with both Richard and Rhian Ramos in Captain Barbell and Zorro, Direk Dom Zapata brings his expertise in directing the most innovative teleseryes and telefantasyas to the episode, “Soulmates”. Spectators will be amazed in his episode’s comedic, dramatic and thrilling elements with an unexpected twist toward the end.

The controversial director Andoy Ranay also gets his share of the flick in “BBFF”, an episode awaited by many for Richard and Solenn Heussaff’s long kissing scene. Although it is his first time to work with both Richard and Solenn, Direk Andoy guided the two to work in chemistry and managed Solenn capably in her first movie acting role. Lovi Poe portrayed the perfect third person in the love triangle, which will keep the audience guessing on who will win Richard’s heart in the end.

The challenges of the post-apocalyptic episode, “Gunaw”, fell on the hands of multi-awarded director Chris Martinez. Aside from writing the story and screenplay, Direk Chris also drew out the comedian in our Valentine Box-Office King side-by-side with one of the most favorite comediennes of our time, Eugene Domingo.

Adorable and cute child star Jillian Ward plays cupid as she plays Richard’s sidekick in My Valentine Girls. Her innocent wit and candid remarks provided a youthful glow in the duration of the movie. Even this little angel was captivated by Richard’s disarming charm which kept her all the more inspired in doing the film.

The wits of directors Dom Zapata, Andoy Ranay and Chris Martinez put together in this trilogy gives a new take on the usual Valentine movie-watching. The feel of each episode will definitely inspire couples and singles alike to let down their heavy baggage on relationships and just let love be love – light and simple.

My Valentine Girls of GMA Films and Regal Entertainment Inc. will be in theaters nationwide on February 9, with a premiere night on February 8 in SM Megamall Cinema 9.

‘My Valentine Girls’ Official Movie Poster Released

gma films, jillian ward, My Valentine Girls, regal films, richard gutierrez
The official movie poster of the GMA Films and Regal Entertainment trilogy “My Valentine Girls” has been released.

The film stars the Valentines Box Office King Richard Gutierrez as a novelist searching for a girlfriend with Jillian Ward as his little sister who will have a cupid-like purpose in the movie.

The film has three romantic stories:

“Soulmates” tells of a relationship that started with a vehicular accident involving Richard and Rhian Ramos, a fashion stylist. Richard dies and appears to Rhian as a ghost to ask for help in going back to his family. Eventually, they get closer to each other but what else can happen to them if Richard is already a ghost?

Another story features Richard’s team-up with Survivor Philippines’ Solenn Heussaff in “BBFF”. Richard plays the role of a lawyer who decides to propose to his best friend Solenn. However, the latter prefers that they remain friends due to her beliefs and notions on friendships turning into romantic relationships. She then sets up Richard with Lovi Poe and the two hit it off. Will Solenn regret her match-making in the end?

The trilogy also includes “Gunaw”, an apocalyptic tale with ace comedienne Eugene Domingo. Uge convinces Richard that they have a mission to procreate because they are the only humans left after a worldwide disaster. Will Richard give in to Uge for the sake of humankind?

“My Valentine Girls” is set to open in theaters on February 9, 2011.
