Dinosaur park comes to life anew in “JURASSIC WORLD”


DINOSAUR PARK COMES TO LIFE ANEW IN “JURASSIC WORLD”

Can you imagine what a dinosaur looks like, moves like or sounds like without thinking of “Jurassic Park?”

It isn’t just a movie. It’s a memory shared by all of us.

It defined the colossal summer blockbuster, a moviegoing event of a lifetime that provided us some of the most lasting, iconic sights and sounds of cinema.

It gave you the feeling that the first day of summer had arrived.

It pioneered advancements in visual effects that made you believe dinosaurs roamed the Earth again.

Mixing plausible science with breathtaking imagination, it told a cautionary tale about what could result from messing with the natural order.

It left your eyes wide, your jaw open and your heart racing.

Jurassic Park answered the question of how much story, how much fun and how much spectacle could fit into one perfect summer motion picture.

Now, the story of Steven Spielberg’s original comes full circle as the park that was only a promise comes to life.

Welcome to “Jurassic World.” The new film is directed by Colin Trevorrow (“Safety Not Guaranteed”) who was handpicked by Spielberg to take the Jurassic mantle.

Twenty-two years ago, Dr. John Hammond had a dream: a theme park where visitors from all over the world could experience the thrill and awe of witnessing actual dinosaurs.

Now, his dream has finally become a reality.

Welcome to Jurassic World, a fully operational luxury resort where tens of thousands of guests explore the wonder and brilliance of Earth’s most magnificent living prehistoric marvels and interact up close with them every day.

Situated on an island off the coast of Costa Rica and constructed around a bustling Main Street, Jurassic World is a state-of-the-art wonder full of astonishing attractions. Kids ride gentle mini Triceratops in the petting zoo, crowds cheer as the aquatic Mosasaurus leaps from a performance pool to snatch a great white shark dangled as a snack, and families gaze with fascination as dinosaurs of every shape and size roam again, all displayed and safely contained for the guests’ amusement.

Overseeing every corner of Jurassic World is driven careerist Claire (Bryce Dallas Howard), who finds herself unexpectedly saddled with the arrival of her nephews, Zach, 16 (Nick Robinson), and Gray, 11 (Ty Simpkins). Although they’ve been shipped off by their mom, Karen (Judy Greer), to spend a few days at Jurassic World, Claire has no time for the distraction of two visiting kids and loads them down with passes, sending them off to explore the park.

The park’s miraculous animals are created by Dr. Henry Wu (BD Wong), a geneticist who once worked for InGen, the company behind Hammond’s first park, and now for the larger-than-life billionaire benefactor of Jurassic World, Simon Masrani (Irrfan Khan). Because the commercial prosperity of the park demands new innovations every year to keep guests returning, Dr. Wu is pushed beyond the bounds of ethical science, manipulating genetics to engineer a genetically modified dinosaur that never walked the Earth before, and whose abilities remain undiscovered.

The most secretive new breed developed by Dr. Wu and yet to be debuted in the park is the massive and mysterious Indominus rex. Raised in isolation after devouring its only sibling, the Indominus rex, whose genetic makeup has been classified, is reaching maturity. To help assess the creature and the security of its containment, Claire visits Owen (Chris Pratt), an ex-military expert in animal behavior working at a secluded research base on the periphery of the main park. Owen is years into a training study with a pack of aggressive Velociraptors, over whom he’s established an alpha relationship that balances the animals precariously between reluctant obedience and predatory revolt.

When the Indominus rex—whose capacities for savagery and intelligence are unknown—stages an escape and disappears within the depths of the jungle, every creature in Jurassic World, both dinosaur and human, is threatened. For Claire, the lives that matter most are those of her nephews, who have ventured off course in a gyrosphere vehicle that allows 360-degree visibility of the world all around them. Now, Owen and Claire join the hunt for the boys as order inside the park turns to mayhem and guests turn into prey. Dinosaurs escape into the open, the skies and the water to engage in an all-out war for survival, and no corner within the world’s greatest theme park is safe anymore.




Opening across the Philippines on June 10, “Jurassic World” is distributed by United International Pictures through Columbia Pictures.

Director Marjane Satrapi elevates “THE VOICES” with highest of notes


DIRECTOR MARJANE SATRAPI ELEVATES “THE VOICES” WITH HIGHEST OF NOTES

Acclaimed graphic novelist Marjane Satrapi directs Ryan Reynolds in what critics are saying to be the best performance yet of his career in “The Voices” that also stars Gemma Arterton and Anna Kendrick.

The story opens on Jerry’s (Reynolds) early days at his new job. Mesmerized by the ballet-like trajectory of pink forklifts amongst the bustling computer-controlled assembly lines at Milton Fixture and Faucet’s modern factory, he wears pink overalls and heavy gloves, and is proud of his work. At home, he is not the brightly clad guy as he is perceived to be and talks to his pets – a dog and a cat that Jerry believes are talking back to him.

Further in the story, Jerry asks for a date with his office crush, Fiona (Arterton), but she is not really that into him and stands him up. “At first Fiona thinks that he is just this kind of strange, sweet guy but, after they dance together at the office party, Jerry is a little bit too friendly and she starts to avoid him in the office," explains Gemma Arterton. Car trouble strands Fiona on that rainy night when she stood him up and a truck pulls over when she raises her hand for a ride. She pounds on the window and Jerry is startled to see Fiona, an angel from heaven, a sign their love was meant to be! In the midst of their conversation Jerry accidentally hits a deer,” continues Arterton. “To put it out of its misery, he kills the deer in front of Fiona’s horrified face which sends her running into the woods. Jerry chases her, accidently stabs her, and the rest of the film is my talking head in Jerry’s fridge! The relationship really becomes his fantasy of Fiona, which is lovely and sweet and funny.”

Director Marjane Satrapi typically only works on pieces she has written, but “I just couldn’t put the script down,” she recalls. “I thought that it was an extremely ambiguous, very unique story. This crazy world of Jerry’s was one of the best descriptions of schizophrenia that I ever read. I don’t like so much to film reality because I live in reality. I prefer, when I have the opportunity, to create a whole world around something.”

Satrapi known for her acclaimed “Persepolis” graphic novel tells the story of Satrapi’s youth in Iran in the 1970s and 80s, of living through the Islamic Revolution and the war with Iraq. It is a book about childhood, a childhood at once outrageous and ordinary—beset by the unthinkable, but buffered by an extraordinary and loving family. The book was published in four volumes in France, where it met with enormous critical acclaim and won several prestigious awards: Prix Alph’art Coup de Coeur at Angoulême, Prix du Lion in Belgium, Prix Alph’art du meilleur scénario, and the Prix France Info. Her work was also named as one of the 100 Best Books of the Decade by The Times (London).

Satrapi works with a script by Michael Perry who has collaborated with some of the most talented and demanding luminaries of the small screen, including David Milch, Chris Carter, David Kelley, David Shore, Sam Raimi, and Dick Wolf. Perry was awarded an Emmy for co-writing an episode of NYPD BLUE, and has been nominated for the Mystery Writers of America’s Edgar Award three times, winning Best Television Episode for his writing on LAW & ORDER: Special Victims Unit.

Ryan Reynolds tries to fit in despite being a misfit in “THE VOICES”


RYAN REYNOLDS TRIES TO FIT IN DESPITE BEING A MISFIT IN “THE VOICES”

Injecting new twist on the serial killer movie genre, acclaimed graphic novelist Marjane Satrapi helms “The Voices” with a perfectly pitched cast led by Ryan Reynolds along with Gemma Arterton and Anna Kendrick in a story so unique about a misfit who walks on a very thin line between being the protagonist and antagonist.

In “The Voices,” Reynolds stars as Jerry Hickfang who works at a bathtub factory and attempts to walk the straight-and-narrow, in spite of his talking pet dog and cat trying to influence him. When he accidentally kills an attractive woman from accounting (Arterton), he hastily tries to cover his tracks. But Jerry is beyond the reach of his well-meaning psychiatrist Dr. Warren (Jacki Weaver) and Lisa (Anna Kendrick), the only woman he ever truly loved, and spirals into a world of violence where he ultimately finds salvation.

Director Marjane Satrapi typically only works on pieces she has written, but “I just couldn’t put the script down,” she recalls. “I thought that it was an extremely ambiguous, very unique story. This crazy world of Jerry’s was one of the best descriptions of schizophrenia that I ever read. I don’t like so much to film reality because I live in reality. I prefer, when I have the opportunity, to create a whole world around something.”

“What Jerry wants in life is to be accepted and to be seen by people as a good person, somebody worthy of their friendship, but ultimately he is one of the loneliest guys on earth,” explains Ryan Reynolds of his character, who has no family and lives above a derelict bowling alley at the edge of a small town in Michigan. “He is something of a misfit and throughout the course of the movie we find he has a lot of demons and a lot of baggage that he carries around with him all day. He strives to be a good person but walks that thin line between protagonist and antagonist.”

“I was attracted to the idea that Jerry has these dual natures, the proverbial angel and devil on his shoulders,” continues Reynolds. “Mr. Whiskers, who is kind of a Scottish mercenary and the voice of destruction and violence, and Bosco, who sounds a bit like a dim southern gentlemen that voices kindness and compassion, are Jerry’s cat and dog, his dueling natures, he listens to each of them. I don’t think he particularly likes the cat, but Mr. Whiskers serves a purpose in his life and Jerry’s warped mind keeps him safe.”

Producer Adam Stone further enthuses on the film’s uniqueness, “It’s not just a thriller, or just a comedy or just a fantasy,” whose Mandalay Vision focused on the script when it appeared on The Hollywood Black List three years ago. “It’s a completely original screenplay that’s not formulaic; you don’t know if you should laugh or cry, and I love that!” Adds producer Matthew Rhodes, “I love psychological thrillers and THE VOICES is unique in that it makes you think, really makes you feel, as we follow Jerry down the rabbit hole and discover he is not the person he thought he was. He struggles because he doesn’t want to be evil.”







“The Voices” will open this June 3 exclusively at Ayala Malls Cinemas nationwide. Visit www.sureseats.com for schedules and more exciting news and promos.

Anna Kendrick drives Ryan Reynolds crazy in “THE VOICES”


ANNA KENDRICK DRIVES RYAN REYNOLDS CRAZY IN “THE VOICES”

Pitch Perfect star Anna Kendrick stars alongside Ryan Reynolds in the bizarre crime thriller “The Voices” about a man in his 30’s suffering from schizophrenia who speaks to his pets, a dog and a cat which he regards as his conscience.

In “The Voices,” Jerry (Reynolds) is that chipper guy clocking the nine-to-five at a bathtub factory, with the offbeat charm of anyone who could use a few friends but one who needs his medication to function normally. With the help of his court-appointed psychiatrist (Jacki Weaver), he pursues his office crush Fiona (Gemma Arterton) and later his other officemate Lisa (Kendrick). When Fiona agreed to go out with him on a date and carelessly stood him up to go out with her other friends, Jerry’s odd behaviour begins to get the better of him. During the night when Fiona stood him up, he finds her on the road trying to get a ride going home, Jerry then offers her a ride while his hallucinations start to fill his mind until he realizes he has already slit open Fiona’s throat. Once at home, his dog Bosco tells him to confess to the police but on the other side, Mr. Whiskers says otherwise. Jerry then disposes Fiona’s body part by part until her detached head inside his fridge. A week after, Jerry decides to return to work and eventually goes out with Lisa who has long been interested in him but has no idea of Jerry’s psychotic tendencies.

“It was the script for that movie that totally blew me away at first,” enthuses Kendrick, “and then it was knowing that Marjane (Satrapi) was directing it. Ever since I saw Persepolis, I knew I had to work with her. It’s one of those movies that lives inside my mind and keeps popping up all the time. And then when I knew Ryan Reynolds was going to be playing the lead, I had to say yes. You see that’s how it happens to me. People always ask me why I do so many films, but I never set out with that in mind.”

Doing all three characters was a challenge, says Reynolds. “On set, we’d go through the scene. I would perform Mr. Whiskers and Bosco, and then I would also have to do Jerry. It was tough.” For Jerry, these voices represent the intersection of his fantasy and reality worlds, and his struggle to follow a righteous path. “It’s about a guy on a tightrope,” says Reynolds. “It’s about a guy who’s walking that very thin line between protagonist and antagonist."




“The Voices” opens exclusively at Ayala Malls Cinemas nationwide on June 3. Check out Ayala Malls Cinemas’ www.sureseats.com for more exciting movie offerings.

Lizzy Latte's "Vanilla Latte" is ♡♡♡


First and foremost, I'd like to clarify that I'm not a Lizzy Latte brand ambassador or endorser. LOLZ! I just really so love this place so much that I wanna share each Lizzy Latte experience that I have with you guys. For you to try it as well, of course.

I think Lizzy Latte is more like a "destination" coffee shop rather than a "community" one. Starbucks is, I think, an example of a "community" coffee shop. With Lizzy Latte, it's like you're really gonna visit the place not because it's the nearest coffee shop from your office or your condo but more so because, probably, you wanna try something new or you've already developed a relationship with one of their drinks.

And that's what I've developed with their Vanilla Latte. Teehee! CHOZ!

I oftentimes visit Lizzy Latte whenever my Tita Rachel is in town. She loves the place so much as well. It's like our small piece of heaven in the very busy Makati Central Business District.
One thing that I really like about their Vanilla Latte is that it's not "watery." The texture of the coffee feels really thick and creamy and the hint of vanilla is very evident in every sip. Such a perfect treat for every coffee lover, I'm telling you.
Another thing that I wanna try at Lizzy Latte is their Oreo Cheesecake.
Look at that! Spell...O-R-E-O...C-H-E-E-S-E-C-A-K-E....

Lizzy Latte is located at Builder's Center Building, Salcedo Street, Legaspi Village, Makati City.

Here's their menu that I was able to find on my ever trusted Zomato.

Infamous “SAN ANDREAS” fault triggers worst earthquake in history


INFAMOUS “SAN ANDREAS” FAULT TRIGGERS WORST EARTHQUAKE IN HISTORY

New Line Cinema's action-thriller “San Andreas” imagines the largest magnitude earthquake in recorded history. A seismic swarm along a previously undetected fault near Nevada’s Hoover Dam crosses the border to trigger California’s notorious San Andreas Fault, which erupts in a massive jolt that rocks Los Angeles to its core. But it doesn’t stop there. The shockwave travels up the fault line, setting off a ripple effect of chaos and destruction all the way to San Francisco.

It was the fusion of wide-scale calamity and intensely personal connections that drew Dwayne Johnson and director Brad Peyton to the project, while it was still in the latter stages of development with producer Beau Flynn. The three had previously collaborated on the worldwide hit “Journey 2: The Mysterious Island,” and welcomed the chance to work together again on such a vastly different story where everything – the action, the scale, and the emotional beats – is amplified.

Says Peyton, “This is different from anything I’ve done before. It was more demanding in its larger-than-life elements but also in striking that tonal honesty. I wanted the characters to ring true so audiences could see it through their point of view as opposed to standing back and witnessing it from a safe distance. Because, as impactful as the action is, at the heart of every story are people you care about.”

The idea for “San Andreas” originated with Flynn, a longtime fan of classic disaster films who was eager to update the genre with today’s 3D capabilities and cutting-edge technology to create photorealistic images. Beyond that, he concedes, “The reason this movie resonates so much with me is that within three weeks of my moving to Los Angeles, the Northridge earthquake hit. I had never even felt a tremor before, and to experience a major earthquake was terrifying, powerful. It makes you feel very small and humble. I was always fascinated by the San Andreas Fault, specifically, even though I grew up in Miami, 3000 miles away. It’s just something I think people are aware of, consciously or not. It’s in the zeitgeist.”

To keep audiences on the edge of their seats, the filmmakers raised the cinematic stakes on “San Andreas.” Applying creative license to a real-world threat, the story’s far-reaching scenarios aim for a heightened sense of action and drama. Nevertheless, while not everything depicted on screen is fact-based, the film still acknowledges the reality behind it.

In March 2015 the U.S. Geological Survey estimated the odds of California experiencing a magnitude 8 or greater seismic event in the next 30 years has increased, as has the possibility of multi-fault ruptures, like links in a chain. Attention has long been focused on the infamous San Andreas but there are others steadily building pressure, including the Puente Hills Fault, running from Orange County to downtown L.A., and the underwater Cascadia Subduction Zone, from Northern California to Vancouver Island, with its potential to set off coast-engulfing tsunamis. Quakes have recently been reported in Nevada, Virginia, Oklahoma, Missouri and previously unidentified hot-spots across the country, and remain a global fact of life – with a USGS estimate of approximately 500,000 detectable quakes around the world each year, 100,000 of which can be felt and as many as 100 that will cause damage.

“I took all my own fears and translated them into the script,” says screenwriter Carlton Cuse, “knowing Brad would execute every sequence at a very high level, and he exceeded my expectations.”

Within the broad canvas of a catastrophic quake, “San Andreas” finds its heart in the deepest instincts such an unpredictable and uncontrollable force of nature provokes: our need to reach out to others and to confirm what’s most important to us. “Disasters have a way of bringing out the best in people,” Peyton suggests. “Individuals gain focus and find strength. Ordinary people become heroes, while heroes push themselves to the limit.”

Concludes Flynn, “I think it’s fair to say no one knows exactly what they would do when faced with a fight-or-flight scenario, and that’s something we explore in the movie.”




Opening across the Philippines in both 3D and 2D format on May 28, 2015, “San Andreas” is distributed by Warner Bros. Pictures, a Warner Bros. Entertainment Company.

4 million gay men are beaten every year

4 Million Gay Men Are Beaten Every Year
PlanetRomeo introduces the first global country ranking Gay Happiness Index

PlanetRomeo announces their groundbreaking Gay Happiness Index (GHI) (launched last 17 May 2015) on the International Day Against Homophobia (IDAHOT). Contrary to what the index name implies, the situation is anything but happy.






It is a known fact that 1/3 of all countries in the world still view homosexuality as a crime, and in seven countries it is punishable by death. Additionally, the Gay Happiness Index provides much more information. For the first time insight is given into gay living situations, how gay men feel and how they are treated, comparable on a country level.

The GHI is the result of a worldwide survey in which 115,000 gay men from 127 countries were questioned. The survey was conducted in cooperation with the University of Mainz, Germany. Jens Schmidt, CEO/Founder of PlanetRomeo says, “Until now it was just not possible to ask gay men directly about their personal lives, on a global scale. The spreading of the Internet, and the reach of gay dating platforms like ours, allows us to change this.”

Gay men are a minority everywhere. Assuming 2,5% of all people are gay men, then there are at least 175 million of them on the planet. When applying the survey results to the entire world population, the estimated outcome is shocking:

·4 million gay men were victim of serious physical violence in 2014

·13 million were banned from their family home

·41 million want to escape their home country

·66 million are not out to their parents

PlanetRomeo sets a precedent by making the detailed results, on a country level, available as open source and downloadable for free (ghi.planetromeo.com). The plan is to repeat the survey in the future. “We hope that the data are helpful for everyone who takes part in the fight for human rights for LGBT people worldwide,” says Marc van Zijp, GHI Project Manager.

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

Why is my reflection someone I don't know?
