Which Comes First, Fun or Love? Andi Eigenmann and Bret Jackson React

Which Comes First, Fun or Love? Andi Eigenmann and Bret Jackson React

Viva Entertainment Press Release

While most people are hopeless romantics, new ways and concepts about relationship had grown more aggressive and painstakingly sure-footed compared to the once cautious idea of togetherness.

One of the controversial questions during the press conference of the up and coming film about a one night stand-turned-a-journey-forever film YOUR PLACE OR MINE, Director Joel Lamangan, its cast Andi Eigenmann and Brett Jackson were in the hotseat when they were asked the question “In real life, how do you find the set-up ‘fun before love’ or ‘love before fun’? 

Here’s what they have to say.

Ano ba ang fun before love, let’s get straight to it, ‘tap’ before love,” Director Joel Lamangan asks. “Sa totoong buhay, love ba muna agad? Wala naman ganun. Pagnakita ba kita love na kita kaagad? Physically attraction muna kayo, nag-do kayo, tapos ay love ko pala siya. Di ba ganun? Or love na kita, do na tayo. Walang ganun.

Ako naman, siyempre mauuna muna yung fun, in the sense na makikilala muna yung tao,” Andi explained. “Hindi naman pwede mahuhulog kaagad loob mo sa isang tao in an instant. Although ako at the moment, parang I choose to be alone for now kahit 24 na ako, I have Ellie, my priorities are different now and so what I want is something that would last forever.”

Brett on the other hand, sees both of this situations as a possibility. “I guess depende yun sa situation, I mean like for me I’m a hopeless romantic I believe in the notion of ‘love at first sight’ pero at the same time’ when you meet someone and you really want to have fun with them, you can never tell. When you meet someone, you never know what’s going to happen di ba?

He was further asked to elaborate if he felt the same way for Andi, whom he had a relationship with during the course of the movie. Brett was admitted that he felt a strong emotions for Andi, and he fell in love with her even more when he knew her more in the course of the film though he informs everybody that he and Andi have decided to remain friends and both are happy with the set-up, as long as they know that they are there for each other, then it works for them.




Sizzling the summer is “Your Place or Mine,” a film based on the famous, best-selling story in Wattpad by Turning Japanese, produced by Viva Films, starring Andi Eigenmann, Andre Paras, Brett Jackson. The film is directed by Joel Lamangan with a screenplay by Keiko A. Aquino.

YOUR PLACE OR MINE will be shown soon in theaters nationwide.

Will Ferrell Goes to Prison, Gets Tough for Adult Comedy "Get Hard"

Posted by JED on , under | comments (0)



Will Ferrell Goes to Prison, Gets Tough for Adult Comedy "Get Hard"

Warner Bros. Pictures Press Release
Will Ferrell is going to prison - not the comedy legend of “Anchorman,” “Zoolander,” and TV’s “Saturday Night Live” fame, but his latest incarnation - James, a hedge fund manager facing hard time in San Quentin prison on fraud charges - in the outrageous and satirical new comedy “Get Hard” from Warner Bros.

Directed by Etan Cohen, the film pairs Ferrell with comedy phenom Kevin Hart (“The Grudge Match,” “The Wedding Ringer”), who plays the family man and small time entrepreneur the clueless millionaire assumes to be a thug and offers cold, hard cash to teach him how to survive behind bars. The closest Darnell has ever been to prison is seeing it on TV, but he’s no fool - he takes the money - and devises increasingly ridiculous ways to prep James for his impending hard time. Along the way, the unlikely team forges a friendship that will challenge their most basic – and hilariously off-base – pre-conceptions about so many things, including each other.

For Cohen, who also shares writing credit with Jay Martel and Ian Roberts, the movie’s culture clash and send-up of cultural biases are highlighted by the unique comedy styles of Hart and Ferrell. “This movie is not just incredibly funny because of Will Ferrell and Kevin Hart,” he says. “It also takes a swing at satirizing the stereotypes people have by heightening those qualities in these characters, not only in their interactions with each other, but with nearly everyone else they encounter. This is one of the great gifts both Will and Kevin share - the ability to draw audiences into the joke.”

Cohen sees the film’s title as an added bonus, gleefully noting “the confusion it may produce to people that are not sure what it is about. I think if the title makes people uncomfortable, that’s a good thing,” he laughs. “It’s fun, and it’s emblematic of how this movie likes to go to the edge.”

Double entendre notwithstanding, “Get Hard” refers to the process of preparing mentally and physically for prison. When James - a ridiculously wealthy and entitled hedge fund manager with the biggest mansion and the hottest fiancée money can buy (played by comedic actress Alison Brie) - is convicted of fraud and given 30 days to get his affairs in order, he pegs Darnell as just the right kind of criminal to help him prepare for lockup. And Darnell, who is nearly as clueless as James himself about what that entails, is willing to at least fake it to help him survive his prison stint.




Imagine, for whatever reasons, getting that piece of information that in 30 days you were going to prison - how would you react?” Ferrell muses. This is a question, he tells us, that producer Adam McKay had been grappling with for years, which he and his partners at Gary Sanchez ultimately developed into “Get Hard.” “Every scenario would go through your mind,” he details. “‘I’m going to flee the country… Okay, no, I can’t do that. I’m going to have to learn how to fight.’ Now, imagine that question through the eyes of two people who turn out to be wrong about nearly everything, even each other? I thought that would be a really funny premise. It was something that we kind of built from the ground up, and the final piece was getting Kevin.

They both loved the idea of taking cultural preconceptions head-on in a genre in which nothing’s off limits - racial stereotypes, potty humor, sexual innuendo, you name it. But in between the jokes and balls-out physical humor both excel at, they also see the film as a story about two guys who become unlikely friends and discover how wrong their preconceptions can be about each other and the world around them.

First and foremost, we set out to make a funny, satirical movie that makes you laugh by taking that to the extreme,” Ferrell says, “That having been said, the relationship in `Get Hard’ is almost a metaphor for surviving in the real world, because James doesn’t live in the real world. He thinks he does, but he’s separated. With all due respect to anyone who’s gone to Harvard, including our director, I was thinking ‘Harvard A**hole,’” he laughs. “Yeah, that was my inspiration. And as much as my character knows about financial dealings and how to make a lot of money, he really is completely ignorant about the rest of how the real world works and how people operate within that world.

Opening across the Philippines on April 29, “Get Hard” is distributed by Warner Bros. Pictures, a Warner Bros. Entertainment Company.

Padilla Brothers Return to TV5 with Another Round of Laugh-Out-Loud Comedy "2 1/2 Daddies"

TV5 Press Release
Laughter is the best medicine” - As far as TV5, the country’s one and only Happy Network, is concerned, when it comes to finding the best yet most simple way to beat the summer heat with family and friends on a Saturday night, viewers need only to tune in to the brand new season of the Kapatid Network’s hit sitcom, “2 ½ Daddies”, which is now packed with even more hilarious storylines, crazier misadventures, and more entertaining characters!
 
Starting this April 25 at 8:00PM and airing every Saturday at the same time thereafter, the 2nd season of “2 ½ Daddies” marks a whole new exciting phase in the Pastoran household, as siblings Ver (Rommel Padilla), Apol (Robin Padilla) and Eva (BB Gandanghari) deal head-on with the complications and face the many day-to-day challenges of parenting their now 4-year old toddler Bamba (introducing Aryanna Padilla). 

With their daughter now no longer a baby, the Pastoran siblings will be in for the surprise of their lives as they witness Bamba grow right before their own eyes, becoming more demanding each day for their attention, while altogether experiencing a lot of firsts as parents to a little girl – first crush, first encounter with a bully, first school program, etc. Ultimately, the siblings find themselves being further tested with their unconventional ways of raising a child like never before, while at the same time having to juggle their own personal affairs and respective lifestyles.

On top of Bamba’s schooling, upcoming birthday celebration, and many (awkward) questions about life and her ‘parents’, the Pastorans’ lives are turned even more upside down with the entrance of certain colorful characters in their already complicated lives. 

While Apol has been more than eager to take his relationship with the sexy Maya (Ritz Azul) to the next level, little does he know that she has actually been holding something against him! Eldest brother Ver has finally committed to the love of his life but he finds himself always being made to choose between his girlfriend and Bamba! And finally, things are also heating up with Eva’s love life, but the problem is, her suitor and soon-to-be-boyfriend does not know her true identity!
 
Viewers will have to tune in every Saturday to see which path the Pastoran siblings will eventually take – will they choose to start their own family, or will they choose to stay in the Pastoran extended family?

More great comedy moments can also be expected from this season with the Pastoran household matriarch, Mommy Vi (Celia Rodriguez), rival stage parent Madam Beauty (Cacai Bautista), Dennis Padilla and many other special celebrity guests in the mix.

TFC's Advocacy Campaign on Overseas Voting Wins at 50th Anvil Awards 2015

The Filipino Channel (TFC) Press Release
 
ABS-CBN The Filipino Channel (TFC) earned its first Anvil Award for Public Relations at the recently concluded 50th Anvil Awards held in Marriott Hotel, Manila for its advocacy campaign that encouraged overseas Filipinos (OFs) to exercise their right to vote in the 2013 elections.

“Boto Mo, Kinabukasan ng Bawat Pilipino,” earned a Silver Anvil under the category Outstanding Public Relations Programs Directed at Specific Stakeholders. The campaign, developed by TFC as a result of its landmark partnership with the Commission on Elections (COMELEC) and Department of Foreign Affairs (DFA), won for meeting the highest standards in terms of addressing the campaign’s defined objectives of promoting the overseas voting to Filipinos outside the homeland; defining a strategic plan that includes the engagement of our kababayans at key touchpoints, execution of communication elements with the maximization of resources; and making effective evaluation post-campaign.

According to Anvil Awards Committee Chairperson Milen De Quiros, APR, “The Anvil is the symbol of excellence in public relations in the Philippines, conferred by a distinguished multi-sectoral jury to outstanding public relations programs and tools designed and implemented in 2013.”

Public Relations Society of the Philippines (PRSP) President Bong Osorio, APR, says this year’s Anvil was very competitive as the PRSP recorded a total of 423 entities, the highest in years. He says: “TFC’s campaign won over notable finalists. The award attests to the network’s adherence to highest standards of excellence in Public Relations.

Community and nation-building are embedded in ABS-CBN’s corporate culture, reflecting our organizational values and objectives. Thus, working with Philippine government agencies like COMELEC, DFA and Philippine embassies and consulates worldwide to involve overseas Filipinos in the election process is an endeavor that makes much sense. Winning an Anvil award for our PR campaign to promote that involvement is a validation of that effort.

ABS-CBN Releases a Song, To Stage Free Concert in Support of Manny Pacquiao


The Kapamilya network has just released a song entitled “Isang Laban, Isang Bayan” that will serve as the network’s war song to pump up Manny Pacquiao in the biggest fight of his career.

The song encapsulates the feeling of unity that has pervaded the Filipinos since the announcement of his biggest fight. 

Let us continue showing the world that the People’s Champion is not fighting alone. We have to show the world that with every punch he throws, the power of the Filipinos are with him so keep sending in those punches,” urged ABS-CBN head for sports Dino Laurena.

The song,  a collaboration between Star Music’s Jonathan Manalo, Quest, arranged by KidWolf and sang by Constantino, was launched during last Wednesday’s “It’s Showtime.”

Watch below:



ABS-CBN as announced by Laurena is also holding a cheer rally and concert for Manny Pacquiao, saying, “Everybody is invited join us at the Marikina Sports Complex grounds as we host ‘Bida Kapamilya: Isang Bayan Para kay Pacman’ where we will also debut the music video of ‘Isang Laban, Isang Bayan,’” 



The concert will start at 4PM. Tickets will be made available starting 1PM at the venue itself.
