Known for stylish women’s shoes and bags, Centropelle has a new name: C’NTRO. The brand recently opened a new boutique located in Ayala Fairview Terraces mall.

Centropelle has been known for trendy and classic shoes and bags for women since the 70s. Now, the brand is changing its name to C’NTRO.

“C” represents its old and established name “Centropelle.” “NTRO” could be considered as INTRO, which signifies the brand’s entrance to a revitalized and refreshed modern era. Even the logo was changed to make it look younger, abbreviated or shorten like how the generation now shorten the words used.

A C’NTRO lady, the brand’s target market, is being described as not just modern but more refined, stylish and on trend not forgetting their elegance, class and practicality. They are under the B and C to C2 bracket with ages 21 to early 30’s. They are more daring when it comes to style. They are leaning into more practical, sometimes simple yet elegant look.

A C’NTRO girl, the brand’s secondary target market, are teens belonging to the B and C to C2 bracket ages 13 to 20. They are also fashion forward, young, fun, full of life and they want to stand out.

Uprising Actresses Mélanie Laurent and Sarah Gadon Join Jake Gyllenhaal in "Enemy"

Posted by JED on , under | comments (0)




Chaos is order yet undeciphered.

Equally as important as Jake Gyllenhaal’s dual-role of Adam and Anthony in the existential erotic thriller ENEMY, are the women in the lives of the two characters.

Cast to play Adam’s girlfriend Mary, is French actress Mélanie Laurent. Laurent recalled she was immediately intrigued by the role of Mary and had many questions about the character.

The first thing I said to director Denis Villeneuve was I needed to know how long Mary and Adam had been together because we’re seeing the end of the relationship when we start the movie, which can be a strange place to begin,” says the actress.

We talked extensively about Mary and about her relationship with Adam, which really helped me with the part.” “Mary is a very vulnerable character, but not a victim,” says Laurent. “I think she’s still really in love with Adam but she realizes that the relationship simply isn’t working.”  Acting this emotionally draining role opposite Jake Gyllenhaal was both wonderfully difficult and unique. “One minute we’re having violent sex, the next we’re laughing and the next we’re crying. Because it’s the end of their relationship, it’s really tense,” recalls Laurent.



For the part of Anthony’s pregnant wife Helen, the production team enlisted the talents of Sarah Gadon.

I wanted an experience where I felt pushed and challenged - that's why doing this project was so important to me,” says Gadon.  “I knew that working with Denis would do that and I knew that working on a film like this would challenge me immensely.”

After reading the script and meeting with Villeneuve, Gadon understood that ENEMY would be a balancing act between high-art aesthetic and the realism of true-to-life character. Despite its style and panache, Gadon thought that the role also had much to do with real, human experience. “The way that I look at Helen and her situation with her husband Anthony is that she wants him to be the man that he isn't but one day he walks in the door and he is the man she has always wanted him to be,” says Gadon.

At that point nothing else matters because the man she wants to be with is now in front of her.” 

In addition to acting, Gadon had to endure the idea of transforming into a pregnant woman and opted for a weighted belly to aid her performance. “I asked for a weighted belly because I wanted to feel the physical presence of the pregnancy,” says Gadon. “I knew there would be scenes that instinctually I'd want to move fast or I'd want to do a physical movement and if it didn't look real it would kill me. I wear the weighted belly underneath my clothes and then a prosthetic piece when I'm nude, which takes two hours to be put on.

Gyllenhaal recognizes that the women in the script are integral to the story. “The incredible thing about this movie is that there are these three immensely strong female characters and three strong actresses who play them,” says Gyllenhaal. “I think the women in the script define Adam and Anthony. With Mary, her spirit is what drives a large part of the Adam story and likewise with Helen in Anthony’s life.”

The third female character in the film is Adam’s mother, Caroline, played by legendary actress Isabella Rossellini , whom he visits in an attempt to get some clarity on his situation.

Caroline is an artist,” says Rossellini. “She has authority with her son and is quite dismissive of him, isolating him even further in his anguish.”   On working with the legendary actress, Villeneuve says: “It was a massive privilege for me to work with Isabella Rossellini. She’s one of my favorite actresses of all time and she was my first choice. I needed someone that would be able to bring this kind of narcissism and maternal presence to the part with a lot of humanity. And I knew that she would be perfect.” 
Watch ENEMY Trailer below:


ENEMY tells the story of a university lecturer named Adam (Gyllenhaal) who one night, after watching a film, recognizes a minor actor who looks just like him. Consumed by the desire to meet his double, Adam tracks down Anthony, and engages him in a complex and dangerous struggle.

A deep existential crisis must move slowly around Adam, like a shark around its prey in dark waters. This existential crisis, this depression, is part of the main character, even if it isn’t mentioned in the dialogue. How unbearable is it to confront yourself, to totally recognize yourself in another being?” asks Villeneuve.

Distributed by Solar Pictures, Enemy opens in cinemas on July 30, 2014.

Kapuso Miguel Tanfelix and Bianca Umali Join Kapamilya Nash Aguas, Jane Oineza as BUM Youth Brand Ambassadors

Posted by JED on , under | comments (0)




Manila, Philippines – The country’s next top clothing brand, BUM has found another reason to welcome two young brand ambassadors - Miguel Tanfelix and Bianca Umali. A contract signing is set on Thursday, July 24, 1pm at Annabel’s on Tomas Morato Avenue, Scout Delgado Street.

Both Tanfelix and Umali are GMA artists and are the youth lead stars of the top-rating teleseries titled ‘Niño’ which is aired daily on GMA Kapuso Network after 24 Oras.

It is but fitting to have the two join the rosters of our young ambassadors because of the image they have created toward the Filipino televiewers. They consistently project wholesome personas,” Rai Lacoste, BUM’s Marketing Officer said.

Apart from that, both Miguel and Bianca are also considered as today’s Teen Prince and Teen Princess of GMA Telebabad.”

Tanfelix, now 15 years of age was the Young Pagaspas in Kapuso’s other top-rating fantaserye called ‘Mulawin’ in 2004. While Umali, 14, was a former host and performer in ‘Tropang Potchi’ since 2009 till 2013.

 


BUM Equipment found Miguel and Bianca not only as talented youngstars, but as inspirations for this new generation. Tanfelix rose to stardom via a talent search as his efforts paid off when he made it as one of the finalists and was named First Prince of StarStruck Kids in 2004. Umali, on the other hand, being an orphan didn’t hinder her to fulfill her late parents’ wishes and even if she lives with her grandmother; she has embraced a life of being responsible and independent.

Currently, the two are groomed as a pair and are also working together in another show called ‘Ismol Family’ that airs every Sunday.

BUM Equipment as a brand continually seeks to work with endorsers that create an image of positivity and leave a lasting and affirming impact for its patrons and its captive market, which is the Filipino youth.

Bradley Cooper and Vin Diesel Form Unlikely Alliance in “Guardians of the Galaxy”

Posted by JED on , under | comments (0)




Bradley Cooper and Vin Diesel team up for Marvel's “Guardians of the Galaxy” as Rocket, a genetically altered, cybernetically enhanced talking raccoon, and his friend Groot, an advanced humanoid tree creature, respectively.

Describing the two unusual characters, director James Gunn says, “Rocket is not the happiest guy in the world. He’s a sad, malformed creature who has been taken apart and put back together again. He has experienced a lot of pain in his life and is grounded as a result and, because of that, is probably the heart of the movie in many ways, much like Groot, Rocket’s only real friend, who can only communicate with three words, yet his story breaks your heart.

For Bradley Cooper, doing voice-over for a character was a first. “The whole process is so new to me,” says Cooper. “It’s like an education every time and it’s interesting.”

He adds, “There’s a lot of humor and a lot of heart in this movie. All the relationships are very clear and emotional and the stakes are obviously high and with the flavor of James Gunn, it has a comedic appeal to it. I think people are going to be blown away by how unique and fresh this film is.”

Cooper describes how he approached getting a handle on Rocket: “I talked a lot to James to figure out who Rocket is. I was really mining his brain and looking at images he showed me. I also read tons of stuff but it was just really trial by error and just finding him based on what they had already shot.

The friendship between Rocket and Groot is certainly a unique one as Cooper explains: “It’s a very old-school male friendship where no one’s feelings are talked about. Rocket is protective of Groot but at the same time you feel like maybe it’s a means to an end because Groot’s his protection too. Rocket’s a raccoon; he doesn’t have the ability to do things that this huge tree can.” Cooper laughs, adding, “You guys understand what I’m saying, right? You know what trees can do that raccoons can’t. Wait, what?

Gunn is enthusiastic about casting Vin Diesel as the voice of Groot and says, “As far as I’m concerned, Vin brings as much to his role and to the movie as any other performer. With just a handful of lines and hundreds of grunts he creates a character completely out-of-this-world that we still love. I can’t imagine anyone able to balance gruffness and sweetness like Vin—and that’s really what’s at the core of Groot. Sometimes I watch Groot on screen and—even though I stood beside Vin through every moment of his recording—I can’t believe the voice is coming out of a human being. He truly channels the character in an almost supernatural way.”

Diesel admits that Groot’s one line of dialogue sold him on the character. He explains, “How they were able to reinforce the theme, the meaning and the message of the whole movie in one line of character dialogue impressed me. And how that line translates in the third act is really going to be something that allows the audience to feel like they are part of this world and understand the stakes and what the characters are going through.

Diesel had previously voiced the Iron Giant in the film by the same name a few years back and found voicing Groot to be a fun process as well. “Breathing life into a character is priceless because it’s timeless,” comments the actor. “Iron Giant has been with me for 15 years and even now when I pick my kid up from school all the kids say, ‘Oh, hi, Iron Giant.’ So I can imagine that by next year I will be my kid’s Daddy slash Groot.

Diesel describes working with director James Gunn as “incredible,” and adds, “You can see his enthusiasm about taking this film and going beyond expectations. It’s amazing how successful the Marvel Cinematic Universe has been and to see someone like James, who is committed to trying to break the mold, is inspiring and always a blessing as an artist to work with.”

From Marvel, the studio that brought you the global blockbuster franchises of Iron Man, Thor, Captain America and The Avengers, comes a new team--the Guardians of the Galaxy. An action-packed, epic space adventure, Marvel's "Guardians of the Galaxy" expands the Marvel Cinematic Universe into the cosmos, where brash adventurer Peter Quill finds himself the object of an unrelenting bounty hunt after stealing a mysterious orb coveted by Ronan, a powerful villain with ambitions that threaten the entire universe. To evade the ever-persistent Ronan, Quill is forced into an uneasy truce with a quartet of disparate misfits--Rocket, a gun-toting raccoon; Groot, a tree-like humanoid; the deadly and enigmatic Gamora; and the revenge-driven Drax the Destroyer. But when Quill discovers the true power of the orb and the menace it poses to the cosmos, he must do his best to rally his ragtag rivals for a last, desperate stand--with the galaxy's fate in the balance.

Marvel's “Guardians of the Galaxy,” which first appeared in comic books in MARVEL SUPER-HEROES #18 (Jan. 1969), stars Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista, featuring Vin Diesel as the voice of Groot, Bradley Cooper as the voice of Rocket, Lee Pace, Michael Rooker, Karen Gillan, Djimon Hounsou, with John C. Reilly, Glenn Close as Nova Prime Rael and Benicio del Toro as The Collector.

Marvel's "Guardians of the Galaxy" releases in Philippine theaters on July 31, 2014.

In addition to "Guardians of the Galaxy," Marvel Studios will release a slate of films based on the Marvel characters including "Avengers: Age of Ultron" on May 1, 2015; "Ant-Man" on July 17, 2015; and the untitled "Captain America 3" on May 6, 2016.

Generation Band - OPM Icons' Kids on The Block

Posted by JED on , under | comments (0)



_MG_5263

What do Jose Marie Chan, Celeste Legaspi and Sampaguita have in common aside from being the most-awarded and well-respected veteran singers in the country? They have sons as equally good and talented as them. And they are about to conquer the mainstream music scene via their debut self-titled album GENERATION.

Formed in 2008, Generation Band is a group of musicians who shared not only a passion for the classic rock music of decades past, but true-blooded OPM pedigree, the four members all being sons of renowned OPM icons in the country.


Soon after forming, Generation began writing and recording their own material, which is an inspired blend of rocking riffs, strong melodies and vocal harmonies.

Meet the members of Generation:

KOWBOY SANTOS
 
_MG_5309


Kowboy Santos is Sampaguita’s son. He is the killer lead guitarist of Generation.

Kowboy has been playing his guitar since the age of 16. He honed his chops over the years by playing along to his favorite songs, and by taking private lessons from GIT graduate Doug Doppler, a student of Joe Satriani. Although possessing sound technical knowledge, Kowboy has an easy, laid-back style reminiscent of living in Southern California, where he grew up. He has played for various bands in Manila, perfecting his “shoot from the hip” style of rock and roll. Kowboy has fronted for major acts and has played both session, TV, and bar gigs. He is known for his unique lefthand, old-school, bluesy tones, and for visual impact onstage with modelesque looks. Kowboy’s abundance of raw talent in wielding a mean, axe has made him one of Manila’s hottest rock guitarists.


IGE GALLARDO
 
_MG_5417


Miguel “Ige” Gallardo is the rhythm guitarist and creative soul of Generation. He is the son of renowned singer Celeste Lagspi.

Aside from being a guitar player and drummer, Ige is also a graphic designer, a boxer, and a creative director. His music inspiration came from The Beatles and The Hotdogs with proficiency in blues rock, punk and 80s metal.


 JOSE ANTHONIO ‘JOE’ CHAN

_MG_5418


Joe is the son of Jose Mari Chan. He plays the bass “a la Paul McCartney: for Generation. His strong passion for music was “turned on” after discovering The Beatles during a trip to Hong Kong in 1987. Although growing up listening to many artists, and being influenced as well musically by his father, who is one of the country’s music icons, it was vacation in Hong Kong that led to a desire at the age of 15 to learn musical instruments, mainly the guitar and piano, and become familiar with basic music theory. After playing for 20 years with various musical groups and “cover” bands, starting in college with the Ateneo Blue Repertory theatre band, he later formed a group with his brother Mike in 2008 that started out as a cover band and, after some time, began to write, perform and record original music.


MIKE CHAN
 
IMG_1229


Son of Jose Mari Chan, Michael Philip “Mike” Chan has developed a strong love affair with a wide range of musical styles ever since he first tickled the keys of the family piano at the age of 8. Whether dabbling in rock, classical, R&B or jazz, Mike has simply found it impossible to resist any genre that his ears latch onto. This highly eclectic nature was no more evident that when it was captured on Mike’s solo album “Five Corners,” released back in 1999 on BMG Records. Mike’s formation of Generation with his brother Joe in 2008 was the realization of a lifelong dream to approach a classic rock format patterned after such evergreen acts as the Beatles and the Rolling Stones. Their original music began to flourish soon after, inspired no doubt by the songwriting legacy of Mike’s father, Jose Mari Chan.

Mike is the keyboardist of Generation.

Generation’s self-titled debut album from Star Records is now available in record bars nationwide for only P250. The tracks can also be downloaded via iTunes, Amazon.com, Mymusicstore.com.ph, and Starmusic.ph.

Viva Films Brings Back The Best in Filipino Drama Movie via "The Trophy Wife"

Posted by JED on , under | comments (0)




Should you thought here comes another film where mistress is glorified, making she looks like the modern type of woman - fab, fighter and inlove but in a wrong kind of way, think again. Gone are those "No Other Woman," "A Secret Affair," or "When The Love is Gone" kind of domestic sexy, adult dramas Viva Films were able to successfully produced in the past years.

In its latest movie offering "The Trophy Wife," Viva Films and MVP Entertainment will surely surprise moviegoers with the movie's ambitious plot, well-thought twist, impressive screenplay, superb acting from the lead cast down to the smallest actors, and the you-never-expect-this-to-happen ending. Direk Andoy Ranay knows how to excellently brings audiences to a variety of emotions, letting them feel for each character caught in a situation resulted by too much love, lust.

The Trophy Wife - Trailer:



The movie opens at the sprawling estate of the recently deceased industrialist father of siblings Samuel (John Estrada) and Chino (Derek Ramsay). While Sam is a dutiful son who has helped steer the course of the family business, Chino is a gallivanting playboy, who feels it’s too early to take life seriously, even on the occasion of his father’s death.

Chino meets Lani (Cristine Reyes) on one of his nights out, and despite her hailing from the wrong side of the tracks, a relationship develops between them. When a bar fight with a local mayor’s son forces Chino to leave for US, a pregnant Lani loses her baby when she goes to Chino’s house in the hope of getting an explanation for his disappearance. To exact some measure of revenge, Lani reinvents herself and catches the eye of Sam, while a lonely Chino finds his much-missed Filipino food an opportunity to meet Gwen (Heart Evangelista) in the US. It is from this point that plot twists and shady motives flit in and out of the picture to the moviegoer's viewing delight, like they’ve encapsulated a whole season worth of teleserye storylines into one film.

"The Trophy Wife," starring Cristine Reyes, Heart Evangelista, John Estrada and Derek Ramsay opens in theaters nationwide on July 30, 2014.

The Voice Kids Finals Night Rakes All-Time High Ratings

Posted by JED on Monday, July 28, 2014 , under | comments (0)




The grand finals night of ABS-CBN's singing competition "The Voice Kids" drew its biggest ever viewership as it kicked off its two-night finale last weekend, which named 9-year-old Lyca Gairanod the season's champion.

The singing competition registered nationwide ratings of 37.7% and 37.2% last Saturday and Sunday, respectively, according to Kantar Media.

The July 26 rating of "The Voice Kids" is now the show's highest since it premiered last May 24 with weekend episodes. Its previous highest, 37.5%, was set last June 15.

At the conclusion of the program, Gairanod, as the first winner of "The Voice Kids," took home P1 million, a one-year recording contract with MCA Universal, house and lot, a home appliance showcase, a musical instrument showcase, and P1 million worth of trust fund.

Fellow Team Sarah member Darren Espanto placed second, while Team Bamboo's Juan Karlos Labajo and Team Lea's Darlene Vibares finished third and fourth, respectively.

Since its premiere, "The Voice Kids" consistently topped TV ratings in the country.

In June, the singing competition averaged a national TV rating of 35.6%, according to Kantar Media, making it the No. 1 program in the Philippines for the month.

ABS-CBN's "The Voice Kids" is one of over 50 international versions of the talent search, including the format for adults.

The second season of "The Voice of the Philippines," the Kapamilya network's adults edition, is expected to premiere later this year.

When The Voice Kids coach Lea Salonga praised the performance of Team Bamboo's Juan Karlos Labajo at the expense of Daniel Padilla during the grand finals of ABS-CBN singing competition on Saturday, July 26, many televiewers particularly avid fans of the Teen King thought the comparison is not necessary.

After JK's performance of Bruno Mars' Runaway Baby, Lea said:
I’m actually looking at you as a 13-year-old and seeing what you’re going to be like five years from now. 'Yung mga DJ na yan, 'yung mga… wala, sorry. Their names are going to be erased once you get to that age. Because you are incredibly… kasi ang charm mo talagang nagamit dito sa number na ito. 'Yung looks mo, 'yung charm mo, talagang gamit na gamit na gamit.”

But after getting negative reactions from netizens, Lea immediately apologized to Daniel and to his supporters on Twitter saying she did not mean to disrespect anybody.




Did Daniel, who staged two successful, sold-out major concert at the Smart-Araneta Coliseum, felt bad about Lea's statement?

Narinig ko lang po 'yun kanina. Hindi naman po 'yun issue. Sabi rin po ni Mama, talagang mataas ang respeto natin kay Ms. Lea. Baka nadala lang po si Ms. Lea ng emosyon,” Daniel said when asked for statement during his guesting on The Buzz.

Paolo Bediones Admits Video Scandal

Posted by JED on , under | comments (1)




Hours after his alleged sex scandal video (watch HERE) surfaced online and became the most-watched, talked-about, in-demand and fastest trending topic online, TV5 news anchor admitted he's indeed the guy in the video.

While his supporters and fans expressed surprise, disappointment and disbelief  that the respected host and news personality could be involved in such a controversy, Paolo in an article posted last week in Bandera, admitted that he once videotaped his deed with an unnamed sexy star.

Writer Alex Brosas, cited a blogger who said the host admitted that he once made a sex video with a female sexy star but that the video had been deleted.

Part of the report states:

One blogger said that in a past interview, Paolo admitted that he once had a scandal video with a female sexy star. Pero sure na sure siyang walang puwedeng kumalat na kopya dahil sinira nila ang video.

Anyway, bata pa raw si Paolo when the sex video was made and many will be surprised with his manhood."

Meanwhile, TV5 management issued a statement expressing support for Paolo.

The recent issue involving our news anchor, Paolo Bediones, on social media is a purely personal and private matter in which TV5 has no involvement or desire to intrude.

“We accord our employees and talents all respect that are due them for their privacy and personal action or decision. We disapprove strongly the malicious and wanton publication of the video, an act that clearly violates pertinent cybercrime laws. We firmly express our support for our anchor Paolo Bediones in the face of a controversy that represents nothing more than an attempt to smear his reputation.”
