"DRAGON NEST: WARRIOR'S DAWN" OFFICIAL MUSIC VIDEO TRAILER (ENGLISH)

"Dragon Nest," the MMO-based game the world loves to play releases its music video for its movie-adapted release entitled "Dragon Nest: Warrior's Dawn."

The music video entitled "Gem of Love" performed by Keely Hawkes, introduces us to a group of warriors, young and legendary alike trying to save their kingdom from an impending doom that is bent to annihilate all living creatures. The video pans too on the mostly humorous, sometimes romantic encounters between Lambert and Liya - both young warriors in training who met at a time when their kingdom need them most.

"Dragon Nest: Warrrior's Dawn" is from Shanda Games in collaboration with Mili Pictures who is also produced by Bill Borden, known for his works in blockbuster movies such as "Mission Impossible 3," "Kungfu," "Meet the Robinsons" and "Kung-Fu Hustle." Additionally, he also produced the successful "High School Musical" series. The film is directed by Song Yuefeng.

“When I look at the dragon, I thought it would be a great property, a truly international property. It will go around the world. Chinese film has a hard time playing outside of China but this one will. It will play all around the world,” Borden enthuses of the movie.


"Dragon Nest: Warrior's Dawn" is about to open in local theaters (Phils.) on December 3 from Axinite Digicinema.

Manila in Fragments WTA Architecture and Design Studio in La Biennale 2014

Manila in Fragments WTA Architecture and Design Studio in La Biennale 2014

Metro Manila continues to witness major transformations on its landscape. What were once barren districts are now thriving with structures that host multinational companies and iconic commercial and residential developments.

Long-standing buildings from old avenues are being preserved through furthering its purpose and role in the growth of its provenance. The number of city centers, or at least those that are aspiring to serve as one, is on the rise—bringing together the live-work-play aspects in a single dense area to fulfill the promise of convenience and modern living.

Despite such renovations, the paths that identify the richness of Manila’s history are still visible— how the metropolis sprung from cohesion of small communities in the form of barangays, as well as the influence of the colonial era. Picturing these elements, when combined, the city has an immense contrast of edifices that help strengthen the character and diversity of its entirety.

These are just some of the ideas that make up WTA Architect and Design Studio’s installation for the Global Art Affairs Foundation Architecture Exhibition, a collateral event for the 2014 Venice Architecture Biennale. Carrying the theme Fragments: Uncertainties and Characters, WTA will be presenting the various cultural, social, and political influences that mold the urban character of cities in the Philippines, particularly that of Metro Manila. Dissecting Manila’s Urban Fabric “Our exhibit seeks to elaborate how uncertainty and informality allow for a greater growth and creativity,” shares Founder of WTA Architect William T. Ti.

WTA Architecture and Design Studio is the first Philippine-based firm to take part in the Biennale. The firm’s participation aims to show the international community what is going on in the Philippine architecture scene.

“Fragments: Uncertainties and Characters” will show the city of Metro Manila as seen through the lens of the firm's experiences, highlighted by a selection of WTA’s projects that are envisioned to create the biggest positive impact in the landscape.






To date, the Venice Architecture Biennale is one of the most prestigious cultural institutions in the world that showcases architecture installations and large-scale contemporary art crafted by different artists and designers across the globe. The exhibition is held once every two years in Venice, Italy, and for this year, the show will run from June 7 to November 23, 2014.

Hiro Mizushima en vogue and in time for action in “BLACK BUTLER”


July 11, 2014

HIRO MIZUSHIMA EN VOGUE AND IN TIME FOR ACTION IN “BLACK BUTLER”

Following a string of adaptation to theatre, magazines and video games, the widely read manga series “Black Butler” written and illustrated by Yana Toboso has also been adapted to a movie starring Hiro Mizushima and Ayame Gouriki.

The movie “Black Butler” revolves around a “flawless demon butler” character named Sebastian Michealis who personifies grace, knowledge, and physical perfection as he investigates dark and mysterious incidents. Eventually, he was summoned by an orphaned aristocrat to exact revenge at the price of her soul.

"Black Butler" story was originally set in the 19th century, in the ruling era of Queen Victoria but the film is set in the year 2020 to allow for a more reasonable mingling of Asian-European cultures. In the movie, Shiori Genpo (Ayame Gouriki) runs the large corporation Funtom. Shiori is also a descendant of the prestigious noble family, Phantomhive of England. In order to hunt down the murderers of her parents, the orphaned aristocrat summons a demonic butler (Hiro Mizushima) to aid her. Sebastian's job is to protect Ciel until her revenge is fulfilled, then he will consume her spirit.

Directors Kentaro Otani and Keiichi Satou assures fans that even though the movie’s setting is unlike the original, they took very careful note not to disappoint fans of the original. Hiroyasu Koizumi, who is in charge of the art concept says that the idea for the setting is that it is not limited to any nationality or age. Mizushima, who plays the titular role shed more than an ample amount of weight for the role. A Japanese actor, producer, writer and creative director, Mizushima also took part in the movie’s post production process.



“Black Butler” will open July 23 exclusive in SM cinemas nationwide from Axinite Digicinema.

Joel Edgerton is Ramses, the ‘living God’ who sees Moses, raised as his brother, lead a rebellion against him. Sigourney Weaver – who created the iconic role of Ripley in Scott’s acclaimed science fiction thriller Alien – plays Ramses’ mother, Queen Tuya. Sir Ben Kingsley as the scholar, Nun. John Turturro stars as Seti, Ramses’ father.

My favorite male model Clint Bondad and his juice

photo from Facebook

July 6, 2014

At last! Clint Bondad is back from his I-dunno-how-long hiatus from social media.

He posted that photo above on his Facebook, still flashing that oh-so-dreamy smile of his, those pearly white teeth, his brows (the "brows"), his hair, his eyes, his perfectly sculpted nose, his stubble....

And his chest....Teehee! I love him. I just so love him. He's so perfect.

And, yes, that glass of red juice that he's holding as well. Pomegranate? I'm not so sure.

But one thing that I'm really sure of is that....

I really so missed Clint Bondad!

That's all. Thank you.

CHOZ!

A rising nation united in “DAWN OF THE PLANET OF THE APES”

photos and info from 20th Century Fox

July 4, 2014

A RISING NATION UNITED IN “DAWN OF THE PLANET OF THE APES”

10 years after the Simian Flu virus almost wiped out man’s kind, a nation of apes is thriving despite the virus – growing stronger and multiplies in director Matt Reeves’ most awaited sci-fi action of the year, “Dawn of the Planet of the Apes” starring Jason Clarke, Keri Russell, Gary Oldman and Andy Serkis.

“Dawn of the Planet of the Apes” follows what transpired on the previously released film, “Rise of the Planet of the Apes” where Caesar, captured by Serkis, his journey took him from orphaned baby, raised in a human household, to abused prisoner in an insalubrious ape sanctuary, to the liberator of a whole army of apes, artificially evolved to super-intelligent levels by a man-made serum. That film concluded with Caesar’s community disappearing into Muir Woods near San Francisco, before the same serum, in viral form, wiped out most of humanity.

Now, “Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes” picks up a decade later. The apes live peacefully in their own woodland territory, thinking humanity has gone forever. Then, it turns out there are virus-resistant survivors, struggling to recover in a devastated San Francisco. In this new world, a tense stand-off develops, one which leads to a potentially disastrous ape-versus-human conflict.

Human and ape have not encountered each other for years. This chapter of the Planet Of The Apes series concerns their ‘first contact’ since the pandemic — and that encounter’s fallout. “There is this question of co-existence,” explains Reeves. “So, this is that one moment when it could have been Planet Of The Humans And Apes. And that’s what we’re exploring in this story: how that fell apart.”

A formidable antagonist for the humans is Koba, played by Toby Kebbell. The milky-eyed and scar-faced bonobo, introduced in Rise of the Planet of the Apes, Koba spent much of his younger life confined in laboratories, where he was subjected to experimentation in the name of science. In the decade following the apes’ liberation, Koba has evolved into a grizzled warrior who harbors a strong hatred of the human race, believing that the only good human is a dead human.

Kebbell, who recently landed the role of the iconic villain Victor Von Doom in The Fantastic Four, says that Koba’s relationship with Caesar is one of “son and father, if not younger brother and older brother. Caesar is very much in control, and Koba appears to be fine with that.”

A far gentler ape character is Cornelia, the young female chimp who in Rise of the Planet of the Apes was held at the San Bruno Primate Center, and who is played in this film by Judy Greer. Ten years after Caesar’s uprising against humanity, their budding relationship has blossomed. Cornelia is now Caesar’s wife and queen and the mother of his two children: an impatient and sometimes-rebellious adolescent male simian named Blue Eyes, played by Nick Thurston, and a newborn baby chimp.

When Rise of the Planet of the Apes was released, fans immediately recognized that Cornelia was named in tribute to the 1968 film’s lead ape character Cornelius, played by Roddy McDowall. Given her romantic connection with Caesar, her name is also a historical reference to Cornelia Cinna, the first wife of Roman general and statesman Julius Caesar.
Another ape introduced in the last film, Rocket, played by Terry Notary, is a skilled combatant and one of Caesar’s closest allies. As in Rise of the Planet of the Apes, Notary also served as the ape movement coach and stunt choreographer.

Also returning is Karin Konoval, as Maurice, an ex-circus orangutan who was forced to perform for the entertainment of his human captors. Now the wise elder, Maurice serves as loyal consigliere and advisor, serving Caesar and educating the youth of his ape kingdom.

“In this movie,” concludes Reeves, “Caesar goes from being a revolutionary to a leader and a father and someone who has to lead through very difficult times. In that sense, the ambition is for him to be an ape Lawrence Of Arabia. And Andy is someone who has the gravitas and the depth to play that. The fun of the movie is to have the scale of it and never lose sight of the intimacy or the soul of it.” Serkis, he asserts, is the key to its success. “He’s our ace in the hole. He’s just amazing.”





“Dawn of the Planet of the Apes” (2D, 3D, 4DX) invades more than 200 theatres nationwide on July 9 from 20th Century Fox to be distributed by Warner Bros.

PLAYING MASTER AND SERVANT IN “BLACK BUTLER”

Hiro Mizushima stars in the titular role of “Black Butler” produced by Shinzo Matsuhashi about an orphaned aristocrat exacting revenge who hires the services of a black butler at her aid costing her soul.

Ayame Gőriki plays the aristocrat young lady named Shiori Genpo who masquerades as a male in order to get even to those responsible for her family’s death. She eventually summons a black butler named Sebastian Michaelis, on the condition that her soul is already for the taking after the revenge has been fulfilled. Sebastian Michaelis, a demonic butler with impeccable knowledge, manners, grace, cooking skills, martial arts and charming looks.

Adapting the highly successful Manga series into a movie, directors Kentaro Ohtani and Kei’ichi Sato with writer Yana Taboso decided to change the setting of the movie to a very near future fusing the East and West culture, creating a whole new distinctive era. Eventually, most of the characters have also been rewritten to suit the new setting. The all-original story of the film is set 130 years after the manga. Hiro who plays the demonic butler Sebastian returns to the movies for the first time in three years. The actor faced up to the challenge in preparing for the role that he even shed 50 kg off his weight to achieve the closest of resemblance with the character.

The manga debuted in Square Enix's Monthly G Fantasy magazine in 2006, and its 15 volumes thus far have 14 million copies in print, including those published in 42 countries and territories. The manga already inspired a television anime series in 2008 and a stage play in 2009. It received the top prize in the shōnen manga category of France's Japan Expo Awards in 2010 and the Best International Manga Award in Germany's Animagic in 2011.



“Black Butler” will open exclusively in SM Cinemas nationwide on July 23 from Axinite Digicinema.

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?
