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.
