“CINDERELLA” characters featured in own posters


December 17, 2014

“CINDERELLA” CHARACTERS FEATURED IN OWN POSTERS

Walt Disney Studios has rolled out three new character posters for “Cinderella” featuring Ella and the Prince (Lily James, Richard Madden), the Wicked Stepmother (Cate Blanchett) and the Fairy Godmother (Helena Bonham Carter).

A live-action feature inspired by the classic fairy tale, “Cinderella” brings to life the timeless images from Disney’s 1950 animated masterpiece as fully-realized characters in a visually-dazzling spectacle for a whole new generation.

The story of “Cinderella” follows the fortunes of young Ella whose merchant father remarries following the death of her mother. Eager to support her loving father, Ella welcomes her new stepmother and her daughters Anastasia (Holliday Grainger) and Drisella (Sophie McShera) into the family home. But, when Ella’s father unexpectedly passes away, she finds herself at the mercy of a jealous and cruel new family. Finally relegated to nothing more than a servant girl covered in ashes, and spitefully renamed Cinderella, Ella could easily begin to lose hope. Yet, despite the cruelty inflicted upon her, Ella is determined to honor her mother’s dying words and to “have courage and be kind.” She will not give in to despair nor despise those who mistreat her.

And then there is the dashing stranger she meets in the woods. Unaware that he is really a prince, not merely an apprentice at the Palace, Ella finally feels she has met a kindred soul. It appears her fortunes may be about to change when the Palace sends out an open invitation for all maidens to attend a ball, raising Ella’s hopes of once again encountering the charming Kit. Alas, her stepmother forbids her to attend and callously rips apart her dress. But, as in all good fairy tales, help is at hand, and a kindly beggar woman steps forward and, armed with a pumpkin and a few mice, changes Cinderella’s life forever.

Directed by Academy Award® nominee Kenneth Branagh (“Thor,” “Hamlet”), “Cinderella” is produced by Simon Kinberg (“X-Men: Days of Future Past,” “Elysium”), Allison Shearmur (“The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part I”) and David Barron (“Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows”) with Tim Lewis (“Goldeneye”) serving as executive producer. The screenplay is by Chris Weitz (“About a Boy,” “The Golden Compass”).




“Cinderella” will be released in the Philippines on March 11, 2015 through Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures International. For more information, visit: http://www.disney.com/Cinderella.

Final “HOBBIT” film opens at no. 1, grosses P72-M in just 3 days


December 16, 2014

FINAL “HOBBIT” FILM OPENS AT NO. 1, GROSSES P72-M IN JUST 3 DAYS

The Philippines bade farewell to Middle-earth with a heartfelt send-off as “The Battle of the Five Armies” – the final film in “The Hobbit” trilogy -- hauled a stunning P72-million opening gross at the nationwide box-office in only three days.

This was announced today by Francis Soliven, General Manager of Warner Bros. Philippines which locally distributed the film.

“Battle” debuted on Friday, Dec. 12 which meant it had only a three-day opening weekend, yet the film managed to overcome this setback and still captured 65 percent of the market for a No.1 bow.

The Peter Jackson-directed saga also established several records, among them the Biggest Opening Day for a Warner Bros. film this year (ahead of “Godzilla”), Biggest Opening Day and Biggest 3-Day-Weekend for a “Hobbit” or “Lord of the Rings” franchise film.

The fantastic opening in the Philippines reflected the film's phenomenal debut at the foreign box office this weekend, picking up a massive $117.6 million in 38 foreign territories, including such major markets as Japan, Russia and Mexico. It opens in the U.S. on Dec. 17 yet.

Among the notable territories, Germany accounted for $19.5 million, the United Kingdom contributed $15.2 million, France added $14.5 million, and Russia amassed $13.4 million, ranking as the biggest Warner Bros. opening ever in the country.

Back in the Philippines, “Battle” reeled off in 296 screens, with SM Mall of Asia garnering for the highest receipts at P3.92-M, followed by SM North EDSA (P3.35-M) and SM Megamall (P3.26-M).

Trinoma clinched the fourth slot with P2.56-M, followed by SM Cebu (P2.21-M), Glorietta 4 (P2-M), SM Aura (P1.75-M), Bonifacio High Street (P1.63-M), Greenbelt 3 (P1.61-M) and Ayala Cebu (P1.59-M).

The 11th to 20th places are occupied by Power Plant (P1.49-M), Gateway (P1.45-M), SM Southmall (P1.34-M), Shang Cineplex (P1.30-M), Alabang Town Center (P1.28-M), SM Clark (P1.23-M), Eastwood (P1.06-M), Theatremall (P1.03-M), Gaisano Davao (P1.01-M) and Newport (P 981,180).

From Academy Award-winning filmmaker Peter Jackson comes “The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies,” the third in a trilogy of films adapting the enduringly popular masterpiece The Hobbit, by J.R.R. Tolkien.

“The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies” brings to an epic conclusion the adventures of Bilbo Baggins (Martin Freeman), Thorin Oakenshield (Richard Armitage) and the Company of Dwarves. The Dwarves of Erebor have reclaimed the vast wealth of their homeland, but now must face the consequences of having unleashed the terrifying Dragon, Smaug, upon the defenseless men, women and children of Lake-town.

As he succumbs to dragon-sickness, the King Under the Mountain, Thorin Oakenshield, sacrifices friendship and honor in his search for the legendary Arkenstone. Unable to help Thorin see reason, Bilbo is driven to make a desperate and dangerous choice, not knowing that even greater perils lie ahead. An ancient enemy has returned to Middle-earth. Sauron, the Dark Lord, has sent forth legions of Orcs in a stealth attack upon the Lonely Mountain.

As darkness converges on their escalating conflict, the races of Dwarves, Elves and Men must decide—unite or be destroyed. Bilbo finds himself fighting for his life and the lives of his friends as five great armies go to war.




Now playing across the Philippines in theaters and IMAX®, “The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies” is distributed by Warner Bros. Pictures, a Warner Bros. Entertainment Company.

"Hunger Games'" Sam Claflin stars in young adult romance “LOVE, ROSIE”


December 6, 2014

“HUNGER GAMES’” SAM CLAFLIN STARS IN YOUNG ADULT ROMANCE “LOVE, ROSIE”

Sam Claflin came to worldwide attention since his notable role in the second instalment of the phenomenal hit franchise as Finnick Odair in “The Hunger Games: Catching Fire” in 2013 and reprises his role in this year’s “The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1”, but Claflin has already made an indelible impression in the movie industry with his roles in previously released blockbuster films “Pirates of the Carribean: On Stranger Tides” as Philip Swift and in “Snow White and the Huntsman” as William.

Claflin now headlines his latest romantic lead role in “Love, Rosie” opposite Lily Collins - adapted from the bestselling tome, “Where Rainbows End” by Cecelia Ahern. In director Christian Ditter’s new film Love, Rosie, Lily Collins and Sam Claflin star as Rosie and Alex, childhood friends seemingly destined to be together, yet a couple which fate itself seems determined to keep apart. The film paints a rich and textured canvas of a complicated yet lifelong bond between Rosie and Alex, beginning in their childhood, spanning a trans-Atlantic separation, and enduring ups and downs of romantic liaisons with everyone but each other resulting in some bittersweet consequences.

“The story is about two people who really have a deep love for each other, but are constantly being pulled apart,” explains acclaimed Irish author Ahern. “I wrote "Where Rainbows End" a couple of months after I had finished "P.S. I Love You,” she says of the follow-up to her first novel, written when she was only 21 years old.

Born in Suffolk, England, Sam Claflin first took up acting at Norwich City College and completed his studies at the London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art (LAMDA) in 2009. Within a year of graduating, he’d already established himself as a someone to watch with performances in two award winning series – KenFollett’s "The Pillars of the Earth" (2010; for Starz television) and "Any Human Heart" (2010; based on the novel by William Boyd for UK broadcaster Channel 4) – followed by a starring role in the post-apocalyptic drama, "The Lost Future" for Syfy.

“Sam was really our first choice to play Alex,” says producer Robert Kulzer. “He was terrific in the last Pirates of the Caribbean movie and had just come out with Snow White and the Huntsman. I also knew that he would be one of the leads in the new Hunger Games sequel… I basically knew if we could get Lily and Sam in the movie it could be a very explosive combination.” It also proved a combination which worked remarkably well on screen – as evidenced by the pairing of Collins and Claflin in their very first meeting. “It was important that whoever played Alex jelled with Lily; there had to be a visible chemistry,” says Simon Brooks. “I think it was after 15 seconds of them meeting in a room together that we knew we had found our Alex.”

“The chemistry between the two actors simply fired up the entire space,” recalls Christian Ditter of the actors’ initial reading. “After that day it was very clear that no one else could play these characters other than Lily and Sam.” “When Sam and I met for the first time it was just like Rosie meeting Alex,” agrees Collins. “We got on so well from the get-go and we had the best time with Christian… I mean, Rosie and Alex were created that day I think. It was just an amazing feeling.”

For Claflin, the prospect of filming “Love, Rosie” resonated on many levels. Initially attracted by the script and the prospect of working with Lily Collins, he was also a fan of the genre itself and saw the film as a departure from his previous work. “I’d read a fair number of scripts over the past few years and nothing really grabbed my attention like this did,” says Claflin of his decision to come aboard. “The journey that these two characters go on struck a chord with me. I also wanted to do something contemporary, something modern. All in all, it was a no brainer.”

“Sam is like a young Hugh Grant,” says Brooks of the up-and-coming star and hisperformance in Love, Rosie. “What this film did was allow him to really act. He’s incredibly charismatic and he put a lot of hard work into the limited amount of time we had with him.” Like his co-star, Lily Collins, the biggest challenge for Claflin was playing a character who ages from adolescence to adulthood over the course of a performance. “It was very difficult to begin with, but with the help of make-up and costume you felt you were taken back in time,” says the British actor. “I didn’t really need that much preparation though to play Alex,” says Claflin of his overall approach to the character. “Instead what Christian Ditter did was really allow Lily and I the time to get to know each other, along with the freedom to play with the scenes, to just be spontaneous and go with the flow… I don’t think this would have been half the film it is without him at the helm. He was so passionate and easy going – he was just fantastic to work for. And I think his vision for the film was equally incredible.”




“Love, Rosie” opens January 8, 2015 in cinemas from Pioneer Films.

Bestselling romantic author Cecelia Ahern's "Where Rainbows End" adapted to film entitled "LOVE, ROSIE"


December 6, 2014

BESTSELLING ROMANTIC AUTHOR CECELIA AHERN’S “WHERE RAINBOWS END” ADAPTED TO FILM ENTITLED “LOVE, ROSIE”

Do we really only get one shot at true love? In “Love, Rosie” -Rosie and Alex have been best friends since they were 5, so they couldn’t possibly be right for one another...or could they? When it comes to love, life and making the right choices, these two are their own worst enemies. One awkward turn at 18, one missed opportunity...and life sends them hurling in different directions. But somehow, across time, space and different continents, the tie that binds them cannot be undone – despite unwanted pregnancies, disastrous love affairs, marriage, infidelity and divorce. Will they find their way back to one another, or will it be too late?

Based on Cecelia Ahern’s bestselling novel, “Where Rainbows End,” “Love, Rosie” is a sassy, heart-warming, and utterly modern comedy-of-errors tale. Director Christian Ditter adapts to film “Love, Rosie” where Lily Collins and Sam Claflin star as Rosie and Alex, childhood friends seemingly destined to be together, yet a couple which fate itself seems determined to keep apart. The film paints a rich and textured canvas of a complicated yet lifelong bond between Rosie and Alex, beginning in their childhood, spanning a trans-Atlantic separation, and enduring ups and downs of romantic liaisons with everyone but each other resulting in some bittersweet consequences.

“The story is about two people who really have a deep love for each other, but are constantly being pulled apart,” explains acclaimed Irish author, Cecelia Ahern, whose novel, "Where Rainbows End", was the source material for the film. “I wrote "Where Rainbows End" a couple of months after I had finished "P.S. I Love You,” she says of the follow-up to her first novel, written when she was only 21 years old.

“How do you adapt a book that’s all texts and emails,” says filmmaker Brooks of one of the project’s biggest challenges – the novel’s epistolary structure, composed around the emails, letters and text messages which Alex and Rosie exchange. “How do you make that into a movie?” Around the same time, Hollywood producer Robert Kulzer of Constantin Film, found himself in a bookstore back in his native Germany – a country, notably, where the Irish author has one of her most loyal followings.

To adapt Ahern’s novel to the screen, Kulzer and Brooks turned to the British screenwriter Juliette Towhidi, whose credits include the 2003 award-winning hit comedy, Calendar Girls, with Helen Mirren and Julie Walters. “She was like a detective,” says Kulzer of Towhidi’s process of adapting Ahern’s unconventional novel. “She was extracting plot and story points, creating her own world around these episodes that Cecilia had created in her novel.”

Still, most crucial to the film’s overall success, would be the actor’s cast in the two leading roles – Rosie and Alex – best friends destined to be something more who’ve never managed to get their act together. Finding the perfect actors to portray them on screen would prove a simpler proposition, however, with the casting of Lily Collins and Sam Claflin – the filmmakers’ first and only choices for the roles. Amongst the bright young faces in the Love, Rosie cast are: Jaime Winstone (daughter of British actor, Ray Winstone), here playing Rosie’s friend and confidante, Ruby; London fashion model Suki Waterhouse (Pusher), marking her second feature film role as Rosie’s rival, Bethany; rising star Tamsin Egerton (The Look of Love) as Sally, and Christian Cooke ("Magic City") as Greg, a local who takes more than a casual interest in Rosie.

“Jaime, Tamsin, Suki – all of them; I think we got lucky,” says producer, Simon Brooks of the ensemble. “The movie is fresh, kind of hip and cool and we got a cast that is young, fresh, hip and cool.”





Love winds and finds ways - “Lovie, Rosie” opens January 8, 2015 in theatres from Pioneer Films.

Liam Hemsworth reaches tipping point in “THE HUNGER GAMES: MOCKINGJAY – PART 1”


December 5, 2014

LIAM HEMSWORTH REACHES TIPPING POINT IN “THE HUNGER GAMES: MOCKINGJAY – PART 1”

Blazing at cinemas nationwide this November 20 in the Philippines, “The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1,” Liam Hemsworth reprises his role as Gale Hawthorne who finds himself at the tipping point in the latest instalment following the events that transpired in “Catching Fire.”

In “The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1,” from the moment Katniss (Jennifer Lawrence) wakes up in District 13, Gale is there – one of her only touchstones to the world she left behind. But he, too, is no longer the same. A hero who saved hundreds during the destruction of their home in District 12, he is now becoming a dedicated soldier in the rebellion and yet his heart is as unsettled by Katniss as ever.

Returning in the role is Liam Hemsworth, who says that in the wake of Catching Fire events, “He’s had enough as far as The Capitol’s abuse goes, so he’s not scared to stand up to it. He feels ready to go to war, in spite of the costs, to try to take down The Capitol. He sees the biggest part of his job as being the one to give Katniss the support and courage to become the Mockingjay. He’s now kind of her right-hand man.”

Gale becomes a driving force behind Katniss consenting to appear in the propos films for District 13. “He knows that they have to spread the word that the Mockingjay is alive and that only she can bring people together to stand up to The Capitol,” Hemsworth explains. At the same time, he notes that there is a distance between them. “Gale and Katniss have known each other their whole lives and have a lot of love for each other . . . but the difference between them is that Gale now sees anyone who has anything to do with the Capitol as guilty. Katniss doesn’t have those blinders.”

Hemsworth couldn’t wait to work with Jennifer Lawrence and Josh Hutcherson again. “You couldn’t ask for better people to work with. Jen and Josh are both amazingly talented and working with them is a blessing and so much fun. We’ve now all known each other for a few years and together we’ve experienced a lot of pivotal points in our lives.”

He also found great enjoyment in working with Francis Lawrence on the nuances of Gale’s development over time and his increasingly complicated feelings for Katniss. “Francis is the consummate director. He is great at all the big action stuff as well as working intimately with actors. He is one of the most well-prepared directors I’ve had the good fortune of working with. He knows the ins and outs of the story and everyone’s character. When you ask him a question, he knows the answer. He’s always willing to listen and collaborate with you on your input and ideas.”

Liam Hemsworth has a quiet intensity that transcends the big screen. Demonstrating versatility and skill in a range of performances, Hemsworth has proven to be one of the most sought after actors of his generation. Born in Melbourne, Australia, Hemsworth grew up surfing on Phillip Island. Hemsworth quickly landed his first big acting job on Australia’s popular TV series Home and Away and from there went on to book a role on Australia’s most successful TV show “Neighbors.”

Landing his first film role in the feature film “Triangle,” Hemsworth discovered that his true passion was in making movies. “It’s something new and fresh and it’s just a different energy to what I’d worked on before, says Hemsworth. Hemsworth soon began to gain attention throughout Hollywood and, while living with his brother Chris in their manager Will Ward’s guest cottage, Liam beat out hundreds of actors for the part of ‘Will Blakelee’ in the film adaptation of Nicholas Spark’s “The Last Song,” co-starring Greg Kinnear and Miley Cyrus. Hemsworth then went onto star in two of 2012’s biggest box office hits—“The Hunger Games,” directed by Gary Ross, and “Expendables 2,” directed by Simon West. Last year, he starred opposite Harrison Ford and Gary Oldman in the high stakes thriller “Paranoia,” directed by Robert Luketic and Empire State, directed by Dito Montiel and co-starring Dwayne Johnson and Emma Roberts. He also reprised his role as Gale Hawthorne in “The Hunger Games: Catching Fire,” directed by Francis Lawrence.

Hemsworth eagerly looks forward to more film work with quality actors and directors. He says, “I love acting and I love movies. At the moment, I’m just trying to find people who are doing something different and meet people who are as passionate as I am. I have learned the majority of what I know on set, working. You learn from watching people with experience.”



“The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1 “ is still showing in theaters nationwide from Pioneer Films.

December 4, 2014

FROM RED SEA TO LONDON’S RED CARPET – “EXODUS: GODS AND KINGS” PREMIERE PHOTOS

After traversing mountains, crossing the Red Sea and dodging spears in the most anticipated Biblical epic of the year, “Exodus: Gods and Kings,” Christian Bale walked the Red Carpet in the recently concluded premiere night in London along with director Ridley Scott and cast of the movie.

In photos and at the premiere are Joel Edgerton, Maria Valverde, Golshifteh Farahani, Ben Kingsley and Andrew Tarbet. “Exodus: Gods and Kings” by acclaimed director Ridley Scott (“Gladiator,” “Prometheus”) is the story of one man’s daring courage to take on the might of an empire.

Biggest biblical epic production “EXODUS: GODS AND KINGS” begins December 5 in the Philippines


December 3, 2014

BIGGEST BIBLICAL EPIC PRODUCTION “EXODUS: GODS AND KINGS” BEGINS DECEMBER 5 IN THE PHILIPPINES

Academy Award winner Christian Bale, widely known for his unforgettable portrayal in “Batman Begins,” “The Dark Knight” and “The Dark Knight Rises” once again puts on his heroic garb in the staggering biblical epic ever to be produced in Ridley Scott’s “Exodus: Gods and Kings.”

Filmed in 3D, Scott’s film will tell the extraordinary story of Moses. Abandoned by a desperate mother as a baby after the Egyptian rulers order the murder of all boys born to slaves, he is found in the bulrushes by the Pharaoh’s daughter and raised in the royal household, where he grows up alongside Ramses (Joel Edgerton), the future monarch. As a man, Moses has a vision from God and turns his back on his privileged life and leads his people, the Israelites, from enslavement. Scott’s film will feature ground-breaking special effects, to visualise some of the more fantastic elements of the story including the plagues visited upon Egypt and the parting of the Red Sea.

“It’s about two brothers – not by blood, but by bond – who grow up together, but become absolute enemies, and surprise each other. We kind of presented them as two atheists, who understand the necessity for the Egyptian pantheon of gods in order to rule powerfully and effectively,” says Bale.
“Then suddenly you get one, Moses, who is exiled, who experiences this purification in the desert, who has a calling, and who returns, compelled by God, by a voice that is telling him what to do.

“Then you get the other character, Ramses, who has always been sceptical, but now that he is actually the Pharaoh, he’s really starting to convince himself that it’s true – that he is a living god – and he’s enjoying that. “It’s an unstoppable force and an immovable object. You’ve got one guy who is compelled by the voice of God, telling him to liberate, and the other one, who has come to believe he is a god, and that sets up a wonderful confrontation.”

Scott, and screenwriter Steve Zaillian (Schindler’s List, Moneyball) who wrote the script with Bill Collage and Adam Cooper, have remained true to the Biblical story of Moses whilst using the very latest tools available to a modern filmmaker to realise some of the more fantastical elements. “I can’t predict what religious audiences will feel,” says Bale, “when there is a story that is so intensely personal.” “It’s beyond that thing of making a film based on a book. Even in those circumstances, you so often find people saying, ‘I just cannot get into the film because that’s not how I pictured it.’

In notable roles are Sigourney Weaver, John Turturro, Ben Kingsley and Aaron Paul. Weaver plays Tuya, mother of Ramses, first wife of Pharaoh Seti. Star of the director's seminal film, “Alien,” Weaver later worked with Scott on the historical epic 1492: Conquest of Paradise. She says of reuniting with Scott: “It feels like no time has passed at all. I still see this brilliant man, in command of how to make his vision on screen.”

Of her role, Weaver notes that, “It's been hard for Tuya to watch Moses be Pharoah Seti’s favorite,” Weaver continues. “Ridley refers to her as a panther, and although Tuya could be viewed as evil, to me she is a very good mother. Tuya knows how much support Ramses needs, even though he won't admit it. Ramses loves Moses and struggles to do the right thing by him, but he and Tuya are unnerved by Moses’ closeness with Pharaoh Seti. People may see Tuya as a bit of a villain but she is not. She is protecting her son.”

John Turturro portrays Tuya’s husband, Seti – ruler of Egypt, father to Ramses and father figure to his nephew Moses. “Seti has held power for too long, and that’s a burden for him,” says the acclaimed actor. “He has a closer relationship with Moses than with his own son, Ramses, and he would have preferred that Moses take his place as Pharoah, but Seti knows this cannot happen.”

Ben Kingsley is Nun, a Hebrew scholar and spiritual leader of the slaves. Says Scott: “Nun unmasks Moses with the truth, and starts the chain of events that leads to his exile.” Scott feels lucky to cast Kingsley, who several years ago played Moses in a television miniseries. “Ben is a chameleon, clever and adept. There is an iron-cast center to him that was perfect for the role.”

Aaron Paul's role in the landmark television series Breaking Bad earned him legions of fans, and a Primetime Emmy® Award. As the show reached its conclusion after six seasons, he was approached to play Joshua, a Hebrew slave who helps Moses lead the Hebrews out of Egypt.

“Exodus: Gods and Kings” delivers a new perspective on this time-honored tale of Moses as heroic and human as he led God’s people out of slavery and at its very heart is a story between two men raised as brothers with very different destinies.







Prepare for the staggering epic onscreen when “Exodus: Gods and Kings” opens in Philippine cinemas on December 5 (Friday) nationwide from 20th Century Fox to be distributed by Warner Bros.

“THE HUNGER GAMES: MOCKINGJAY PART 1” continues to lead at the box-office


December 3, 2014

“THE HUNGER GAMES: MOCKINGJAY PART 1” CONTINUES TO LEAD AT THE BOX-OFFICE

The highly-successful worldwide release of “The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1” that opened pre-Thanksgiving celebration (U.S.) topped the festive mood of the holidays with a $14.5million on its opening day and continued soar over all at the box-office throughout its first and second weekends that has earned$225 million to-date. Variety’s report states that overseas, “Mockingjay” is also turning in an impressive performance and should hit around $195 million internationally — topping the total of last year’s “The Hunger Games: Catching Fire” at the same point.

“The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1” is expected to strongly hold still at number one at the box-office in the following days and weeks given the movie’s source (series) book from Suzanne Collins is one of the bestselling masterful dystopian novel to beat and in the penultimate final instalment of the “Mockingjay,” the filmmakers have created one tense and exciting film that made the viewers wanting more.

In her third and most poignant turn as Katniss, Academy Award® winner Jennifer Lawrence relished the chance to portray the character at this heightened juncture as she emerges from distress to take her first steps into leadership. “I was excited for Katniss to come into her own as a leader, but she’s still a very reluctant hero,” Lawrence observes. “In the first movie she wanted to save her family. In the second, she tried to save her friends and herself. Now, she starts to realize the impact she has on the wider world and that she has a choice to lead this battle for what is right.”




Flying high on screens, “The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1” is still showing in cinemas nationwide.

Steven Spielberg returns to executive produce the long-awaited next installment of his groundbreaking Jurassic Park series, “Jurassic World.” Colin Trevorrow directs the epic action-adventure from a screenplay he wrote with Derek Connolly. Frank Marshall and Patrick Crowley join the team as producers.

The movie takes place 22 years after the horrific events of the original “Jurassic Park” and is set on a fully functional park on Isla Nublar.

Chris Pratt (“Guardians of the Galaxy”) leads the cast which includes Bryce Dallas Howard (“Spider-Man 3”), Nick Robinson (HBO's “Boardwalk Empire”) and Ty Simpkins (the kid in last year's “Iron Man 3”).

The film also stars Jake Johnson, Irrfan Khan, Vincent D'Onofrio, BD Wong, Omar Sy, Judy Greer, Katie McGrath, Lauren Lapku and Andy Buckley.





Opening across the Philippines on June 10, 2015 in 3D, “Jurassic World” will be distributed by United International Pictures through Columbia Pictures.

Who is that "gay" I see staring straight back at me...?

Why is my reflection someone I don't know?

Must I pretend that I'm someone else for all time?

When will my reflection show...who I am inside?
