Enchong Dee Hot N' Surfing in Metro Magazine Cover

0
Actor Enchong Dee is on the cover of Metro Magazines' January 2013 issue. It looks like Metro is pulling the Summer season as early as January by featuring Enchong Dee on his sexiest magazine cover.




From Enchong's sexy figure it is evident that he really did take his character in The Strangers seriously. One of the films' requirement for the Dolfo character is for the actor to look fit and sexy (and dirty if we may add) in The Strangers.

The Strangers is still showing ranking 5th in the box office tally of the 38th Metro Manila Film Festival.

Sisterakas Grosses P95.7-M in 3 Days!

0
Sisterakas is indeed on top of the box office tally for the Metro Manila Film Festival 2012 with a whopping P95.7 million on its third day of screening. Sisterakas is about an unforgiving brother Totoy Bernice (Vice Ganda) who became the lord of the apparels industry and later on brought misery to his hardworking half-sister Detty (Ai ai delas Alas) while his archenemy Roselle plots an evil plan.

Sisterakas is actually quite of a game changer in this year's Metro Manila Film Festival. However, we could sense that this might become the start of another 'sister-ish' franchise from the director of critically bashed yet phenomenal box office hit Praybeyt Benjamin and the Tanging Ina franchise.

Here is the unofficial 3rd day box-office report for MMFF 2012:

  1.  Sisterakas – P95.7-million 
  2. Si Agimat, Si Enteng Kabisote, at Si Ako – P58.8-million 
  3. One More Try – P40.9-million
  4.  Shake Rattle and Roll 14: The Invasion – P31.7-million
  5.  The Strangers – P27.6-million
  6. Sosy Problems – P21.5-million 
  7.  El Presidente – P8.8 million 
  8.  Thy Womb – P6.3- million

Chinese Zodiac Movie to Be Distributed by Star Cinema

0
One of the most highly anticipated asian movies next year is Jackie Chan's Chinese Zodiac movie which isn't even a Hollywood production but almost literally a Jackie Chan production because Chan, himself, written, directed and produced the film.


Synopsis: Globe-trotting soldier-of-fortune JC is hired by shady antiques dealers to track down six missing bronze animal-heads by any means necessary. The six bronzes originally formed part of a set of twelve, representing the animals of the Chinese Zodiac, forming part of a fountain in the old Summer Palace outside Beijing; they were looted and dispersed when Anglo-French armies sacked the Summer Palace in 1860. JC and his crack team of assistants first head to France, where two of the bronzes are believed to be held in a private collection. The operation to ‘liberate’ the bronzes from a heavily guarded Chateau brings JC into an uneasy alliance with Coco, a Chinese student in Paris, who is active in a global movement which campaigns for stolen cultural treasures to be returned to their homelands. Along the way, JC makes an enemy-for-life of Pierre, the chief of staff at the Chateau Marceau, and an unexpected friend of Katherine, a bankrupted aristocrat whose home contains another of the missing bronzes. The trail next leads JC and his team, now including Coco and Katherine, to a forgotten tropical island in the South Seas, where two missing animal heads are found in a beached wreck. A multi-national band of pirates moves to block the team’s getaway, but JC’s skill and resourcefulness wins the day. Back home, JC is stunned to learn that his employers already had the sixth missing bronze all along, and he sets out to teach them a lesson for tricking him. Meanwhile the protest movement has persuaded buyers to shun auctions of stolen national treasures, and the shady dealers are threatening to destroy the sixth bronze in public. Will JC’s conscience – and his sense of Chinese national pride – kick in to push him to save the last bronze from destruction?

Chinese Zodiac also stars Oliver Platt, Laura Weissbecker, and Korean heartthrob Kwon Sang-woo. This year Star Cinema distributed the Thai film 'ATM' as well as some local indie films like 'Biktima' and 'Bwakaw' and next year will be Chinese Zodiac.

Dingdong Dantes Feels Nostalgic About Second Star Cinema Movie

0
Award-winning actor and "One More Try" lead star Dingdong Dantes did not expect but was truly delighted when he received a second movie offer from Star Cinema, especially that it is another entry to the annual Metro Manila Film Festival (MMFF).

"Fresh from 'Segunda Mano' sinabihan na agad ako na I'm gonna do another project with Star Cinema. Hindi ko naman ini-expect it's for MMFF again kaya parang nostalgic 'yung experience," narrated Dingdong. "
 
Star Cinema gave me a very good experience sa first project ko with them kaya nung nalaman ko na may isa pa, syempre natuwa ako and I was looking forward sa new memories na mabi-build ko doing 'One More Try' na true enough naman ay isa namang pelikulang talagang hinding-hindi ko malilimutan."

Under the direction of award-winning director Ruel S. Bayani, "One More Try" features a modern family drama about a mother's immeasurable love to her son who is dying. In the story, Dingdong will play the character of Edward, a dedicated husband to Jacq (Angelica Panganiban), whose courage and character will be tested when her old friend Grace (Angel Locsin) re-enters his life with their son who is desperately in need of his father's help.

According to Dingdong, aside from the unique beauty of the plot of "One More Try," he immediately accepted offer because of the top caliber actors who are part of it, including former Kapuso star Angel.

"First time ko nakasama si Angel. Kasi kahit na noong nasa GMA pa siya, hindi kami nagkaron ng pagkakataon na magkatrabaho. And although si Angelica nakasama ko na sa 'Segunda Mano' at si Zanjoe (Marudo) sa 'Kimmy Dora,' first time namin magsama-samang apat sa iisang pelikula," said Dingdong who revealed that he learned so much while doing the film. 
 
"Everyday I learn so many things from different people--kung papano sila sa set, kung gaano ka sila kaprofessional towards their work, how much they love their work, and how to make an awesome product while you’re having fun."

Dingdong is also proud of the extraordinary and courageous plot of "One More Try." He said, "Kung gaano siya kabilis mag-evolve as a story, ganoon din siguro kabilis ang magiging impact niya sa audience. Dahil sa pagkakaron ng isang bata eventually it turned out to be more of a family drama film than an adult type of movie na alam naman natin na karamihan nang pinalabas this year ay may ganoong tema."

"Natutunan ko na minsan kasi may mga choices ka na gagawin na maaaring hindi tama sa nakararami pero para sa 'yo morally and spiritually ay para sa ikabubuti ng taong mahal mo," said the actor. "In the film, they will realize na beyond the conflicts of relationships, ultimately ay uuwi ka pa rin sa family mo which is perfect para sa isang film festival dahil panahon ang Pasko kung kelan nagsasama-sama ang mga pamilya."

Aside from the first team-up of Angel, Angelica, Zanjoe and Dingdong, also featured in “One More Try” are Carmina Villaroel, Agot Isidro, Edward Mendez, and Ms. Gina Pareño.

Experience love that makes you do the impossible and accept the unacceptable, don't miss "One More Try," which will be shown on cinemas nationwide starting December 25.

Eddie Garcia Bags Best Actor Award at Asia Pacific Film Festival 2012

0
Actor Eddie Garcia won the Best Actor trophy at the 55th Asia Pacific Film Festival 2012 for portraying the moody gay man Rene with a sickly dog named 'Bwakaw'.

The veteran actor personally accepted the award and received a standing ovation during the awards night held on December 15 at the Venetian Resort Hotel in Macau, China.
 
Jun Lana's Bwakaw is indeed a crowd favorite for being humorous despite its poignant plot which involves a cancer-stricken dog and an old gay man who came out of the closet too late. And because of that and a whole lot more, this little film from the Philippines is making rounds and receiving applauds on film festivals abroad. In fact, it's quite of a contender in Oscar's best foreign film.

Congrats Manoy!
