Memories Lead to Regrets in the LizQuen Movie “Alone/Together,” Now Showing in Theaters Worldwide via TFC at the Movies

People do not always make the right decisions in their lives, and often this leads to life's "what ifs" or simply called regret.

 

In one of Eric Jackson's articles published in Forbes online, he has written about "The 25 Biggest Regrets in Life. What are Yours?" and fifth on his list is "breaking up with my true love/getting dumped by them". Jackson said that "romance is a big area of regret for most of us…It is tough to simply be happy with the love that you've found and takes away from the special moments you have today, if you're constantly thinking back to what you once had."

 

This kind of regret is the theme of ABS-CBN Films Black Sheep's latest movie offering, "Alone/Together", which stars one of the most-followed loveteams in the Philippines today, Enrique Gil and Liza Soberano, that is written and directed by Antoinette Jadaone.

 

"Alone/Together" is the story of college sweethearts Raf (Gil) and Christine (Soberano), whose paths will take a different turn that lead them to the biggest regrets in their lives.

 

Aside from the intriguing story of Raf andChristine, Jadaone also noted how the two stars' individual characters tackled the "disillusionment" that some graduates feel upon facing the real world—a familiar situation to some overseas Filipinos.

 

"When you're in college, you feel na you can change the world. But we find college graduates become disillusioned when they face the real world, so 'yon 'yong tackled sa movie--they are in that period in their lives. Ibang-iba ka na no'ng college ka sa ngayon, iba 'yong taong pinangarap mo maging kaysa sa taong naging ikaw (When you're in college, you feel that you can change the world. But we find college graduates become disillusioned when they face the real world, that is what the movie tackles—they are in that period in their lives. You are different from who you were in college, from who you dreamed you will become, to who you have become)," Jadaone explained.

 

Will Christine and Raf live forever with regrets or will they get the chance to turn things around?

 

Find out what will happen to Christine and Raf's lives in the film "Alone/Together" as it screens in the following dates and regions: February 17 in Taiwan; February 21 in the Middle East and Papua New Guinea; February 22 in U.S., Canada and Fiji; February 23 in Vienna, Austria and Gutenberg, Sweden; February 23 and 24 in U.K.; February 24 in Madrid and Barcelona in Spain, Rome, Bologna, and Padova in Italy, and Dublin, Ireland; February 28 in Australia, New Zealand, and Brunei; March 1 in Saipan; March 2 in Espoo, Finland; March 3 in Milan, Florence, and Torino in Italy, Athens, Greece, Copenhagen, Denmark and Paris, France; and March 10 in Oslo, Norway.

VIVA International Pictures Releases “Serenity” Starring Anne Hathaway and Matthew McConaughey


VIVA International Pictures and MVP Entertainment proudly present "Serenity", a film filled with thought-provoking scenes that will give its viewers more sense of mystery than serenity.  

 

Matthew McConaughey (Academy Award Best Actor for Dallas Buyers Club) plays Baker Dill, a fishing boat captain leading a quiet life in Plymouth Island until his ex-wife Karen shows up with what Matthew has described in an interview as "a very indecent proposal" .   

 

Karen, played by Anne Hathaway (Academy Award Best Supporting Actress for Les Miserables), is now married to a multi-millionaire named Frank, played by Jason Clarke (Zero Dark Thirty, Terminator Genisys).  

 

Talking about her character, Hathaway says that she's "in a desperate situation" because she is "trapped in a toxic and abusive marriage".   She wants Baker to get rid of Frank by taking him out on a fishing tour and dropping him in the ocean for the sharks.  

 

Hathaway reveals that she and Baker "got together when Karen was quite young".  They had a child, but he went to war and it tore their family apart.  "And so she has to figure out what she's gonna do, being a single mom.  She finds this guy (Frank) who kinda reminds her of Dill.  He likes to fish. She starts to think like maybe she can build a life with him, and then he turns out to be her worst nightmare come true."

 

Baker, who is now romancing Constance, a moneyed beauty of Plymouth Island, played by Diane Lane (Academy Award nominee for Unfaithful), is still trying to move on from his troubled past.  But can he truly turn his back on his ex-wife?  What will it take for him to forget about his conscience and help her out?

 

Director Steven Knight (Lock, Redemption), who also wrote the screenplay, attests that "Matthew is the best there is" when it comes to playing Baker Dill.  He explains that the character "doesn't give of himself too readily, someone who's closed in and I thought that was Matthew.  Because of the nature of the twist I want beautiful people…and he's also beautiful."   As a writer, two of Knight's best known works are Seventh Son andThe Girl in the Spider's Web.

 

Serenity is McConaughey and Hathaway's second movie together.  The first was Interstellar in 2014.  

 

Asked what drew them to do this movie, Matthew replies, "I saw a character that I could be very personal with, really find an identity that I can understand."  It's also a well-written story, plus Knight is a writer/director that he trusts.  

 

Hathaway agrees with McConaughey about the story being creative and extraordinary. "I got half-way through (reading) and I have no idea what's going on, but I'm completely in and I just let it carry me away.  And I wind up in a place that was very different than I thought it was going to, but it was a place of feeling and intelligence and soulfulness."  

 

Serenity was filmed in Mauritius, an island in the Indian Ocean off the southeast coast of Africa.  It opens in cinemas on February 13.

ABS-CBN Movie “Quezon’s Game” Earns 13 International Film Festival Awards in Canada

 

"Quezon's Game," a joint venture production of Star Cinema and iWant, ABS-CBN's streaming service, that pays tribute to former Philippine president Manuel L. Quezon's heroic rescue of over a thousand Jewish people seeking refuge from the Holocaust, has won twelve awards at Autumn Selection of the Cinema World Fest in Canada. 

After its triumph at the Autumn Selection, "Quezon's Game" will go on to compete with other quarterly winners. Cinema World Fest will choose its favorite films from the year and screen them at a gala event at the Heron Amphitheatre in Ottawa, Canada in 2019. The audience will choose their favorite and a prestigious CWFA Trophy will be awarded. 

Inspired by true events, the period movie earned an Award of Merit for Drama Feature while its lead actors, Raymund Bagatsing, in the titular role of Manuel Quezon, and Rachel Alejandro, who played his wife, Aurora, won the Award of Excellence for Actor and Actress, respectively. 

American actor Billy Gallion, who played the American businessman Alex Frieder who helped Quezon in the historic undertaking, took an Award of Excellence for Supporting Actor.   

Winning an Award of Recognition for Directing is Matthew Rosen, an award-winning TV commercial and music video director and pioneer in the data post-production field. 

Matthew Rosen & Leo Santos were given the Award of Excellence for Lighting; Dean Rosen, the Award of Excellence for Original Score; Janice Perez & Dean Rosen, the Award of Excellence for Produced Screenplay; Rowella Talusig & Set Construction Group, the Award of Excellence for Set Design; Anglea Pereyra, the Award of Excellence for Sound Design; and Rowella Talusig and her costume team, the Award of Excellence for Costume Design.  Meanwhile, Antonette Gozum won the Award of Merit for Color Treatment.  

In the rarely told epic story of heroism that began in 1938, Manuel L. Quezon joined future U.S. President Dwight Eisenhower, and several other notable figures to rescue Jewish refugees from Germany and Austria. Faced with mounting obstacles—including Quezon's battle with a relapse of tuberculosis—the group fought through and saved around 1,200 refugees.

It is said that in his final days, Quezon asked the question "Could I have done more?" as he recounted one of the least known, but most inspiring stories in Philippine history.

The Cinema World Festival is based in Canada and runs in four quarterly online competitions: Winter Selection (December – February), Spring Selection (March – May) , Summer Selection (June – August), and Autumn Selection (September – November).
  
"Quezon's Game" will make its Philippine premiere this year in theaters and will also be available on iWant after its theatrical run.

Patrick Stewart as Merlin in Action Fantasy Family Movie “The Kid Who Would Be King”


Best known globally for his role in the blockbuster X-Men franchise as the powerful Professor Charles Xavier aka Professor X, Patrick Stewart takes on another mighty role from literature and children's favorite as the wizard Merlin in the family movie "The Kid Who Would Be King."

Based on one of the most famous myths of all time, "The Kid Who Would Be King" approaches the legend of King Arthur and his knights in a completely new way, bringing it into the modern world and making it relevant for contemporary audiences.  The thrilling family adventure starts when average school kid Alex (Louis Ashbourne Serkis) draws Excalibur, the magical sword of King Arthur, from a building site and go on a magical quest — with pals old and new — to save Britain from the forces of darkness.

Arthur's teacher, the wizard Merlin, is among the most famous characters in literature and the prototype for many characters in popular culture, including Obi-Wan Kenobi as well as Dumbledore and Gandalf. Like the legendary Merlin, the film's Merlin is a combination of energies — he's incredibly wise and mystical but also playful and a little bit subversive, capable of lying, manipulating and tricking you.

Merlin has been represented on screen many times, and as director Joe Cornish explains: "We wanted to do something different with him, and one of the interesting elements in the myth is the fact that he lives backwards in time. That has been interpreted in different ways, but the way I wanted to approach it was literal – that the older he becomes, the younger he physically is."

Stewart recalls, "When I was sent the script, I was immediately intrigued by the whole notion of transferring what is usually looked on as a medieval piece, into modern day, and that the great legendary heroes of the Arthurian stories were children, who are tasked by the young Merlin to take over and challenge the powers of darkness, which are threatening to wreck the United Kingdom."

Stewart continues, "One of the big attractions of this project was that I would be working with another actor who was playing the same role, alternating with me as the younger Merlin, which I don't think I've ever done before. I was fascinated with that, so early on I did some work with Angus. We met, and we had a few little experiments that we tried. We both found a passage of Shakespeare that we knew by heart, and so we spoke it in unison, with each one of us trying to imitate the other's voice. I'd never done anything like that before, and it was a fascinating exercise."

A thrilling adventure movie for the whole family, "The Kid Who Would Be King"opens January 23 in cinemas nationwide from 20th Century Fox. 

Teen Dancer-Actress Kirby Johnson Plays the Possessed Cadaver in “The Possession of Hannah Grace”

 

Thanks to her dancing and modeling background, Kirby Johnson nabbed the pivotal role of the possessed titular character in Columbia Pictures' new horror thriller The Possession of Hannah Grace, the ill-fated girl who loses her life in the unsettling exorcism that opens the film. 

The violent, vicious demonic force that has taken over Hannah's body isn't content to let a thing like her death put an end to its reign of terror, and once her cadaver arrives in the morgue, the evil spirit senses a perfect opportunity to wage continued destruction, claiming a mounting roster of new victims as it pursues its real quarry, Megan, played by Shay Mitchell. 

(Watch the trailer at YouTubehttps://youtu.be/9X9hKyf0qYQ)

"The cadaver inflicts pain and terror on its mission to find the best host body to become as strong as possible - each time she kills, her body heals itself," producer Sean Robins says. "When we started talking about our cadaver and how to cast her, we knew that we were looking for someone who understands movement, who can manipulate her body. It's always going to be scarier if you're not using CG, if you're actually using someone whose body will do the things that you need the character to do."

 

Johnson, a dancer and a model, was cast as the teenager who returns from the dead to relentlessly stalk Megan in the basement hallways of the morgue. Johnson began dancing at the age of 11, and her performance background, agility, and incredible flexibility were key to her landing the role. "I don't think a normal non-dancer could have played something so physically specific," Johnson says. "When I first talked to [director] Diederik [van Rooijen], he was very excited that I could do all these crazy movements so they wouldn't have to devise effects or edit me digitally. He was just ecstatic about all the weird, creepy stuff I can do, like pop my shoulders out of their sockets. At the same time, he was very protective of me while we were working."

"Kirby was great," says van Rooijen. "She has this ability to pop her arms and legs, and it's scary. That helped create something special because most of that stuff is real, we did it live. There's not a lot of CG in it. We could actually play and have real reactions, which I think is nice for those kinds of scenes. We had an awesome time that day, but a lot of people were really scared doing it. We had one person walk off the set and say, 'This is too much for me.' You have the feeling, Oh, we're on the right track." 

"She can move in amazing ways," adds Adrien Morot, who designed the special effects makeups for the film. "It's really incredible what she can do with her body. The way she can cock her head looked almost like her head was already falling off."

"We're very excited for people to see Kirby," says executive producer Glenn Gainor. "She's a talented dancer with the fantastic abilities of a contortionist. A lot of what you see in this film might appear to be visual effects, but it's simply Kirby manipulating her body in the manner that very few of us can. It's performance art, and it's really going to freak people out." 

In Philippine cinemas January 23, The Possession of Hannah Grace is distributed by Columbia Pictures, local office of Sony Pictures Releasing International.  Use the hashtag #PossessionMovie


About The Possession of Hannah Grace

But one night, after she takes delivery of a horribly disfigured body, things begin to change.

5 Plus will act as a secondary channel to 5, primarily serving atypical sports and sports-related content and showcasing action geared towards a younger, more adventurous audience. Vincent P. Reyes, President andCEO of TV5, has this to say: "We are excited to start the new year with the launch of 5 Plus. The intent was to create a home for what we call atypical sports – titles with a highly engaged audience base that don't typically receive visibility of this scale. Expanding our sports coverage also enables us to attract a new audience: the younger sports fan. 5 Plus aims to serve content that resonates with the pace of their active lifestyle, and is in line with their varied interests. The combination of both 5 and 5 Plus allows us to cement and expand further our foothold in sports."

For extreme sports enthusiasts, 5 Plus will cover the X Games, featuring sports like freestyle BMX and skateboarding.

Meanwhile, the simulcast of Radyo5 news programs airing on AksyonTV will be transferred to its new home on CIGNAL.

The rebrand also sees a complete overhaul of the channel's look, aimed at visually communicating its new identity. A young, dynamic design language was developed to represent the new programming and target audience. Music identity and sonic branding were also created to complement the visual changes of the channel.

With its expanded repertoire, 5 Plus aims to complement 5's main channel; as the latter will continue to promote more established sports like basketball, volleyball, and boxing, among others. A selection of 5 Plus' atypical sports coverage will also be made available online via www.tv5.com.ph and on 5's various social media platforms.
