Manny Pacquiao and Juan Manuel Marquez to Meet with Pinoy Fans at the Quirino Grandstand this Saturday, September 3

Posted by JED on , under | comments (1)




This Saturday, September 3, GMA Network, Inc. (GMA) ushers Pinoy boxing fans to the prelude of the third face-off between Filipino boxing pride Manny "Pacman" Pacquiao and Mexican bet Juan Manuel Marquez.

Both fighters venture on a whirlwind four-city world tour covering Manila, New York, Los Angeles and Mexico with Top Rank honcho Bob Arum to promote their upcoming bout set on November 13 (Philippine time) to be held at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.

GMA Network is the exclusive broadcast partner, Radio and TV, for both the World Press Tour event as well as the historic fight itself in November.

Pacquiao, dubbed as the "greatest fighter of all time," welcomes another heated battle with Marquez after a draw in their first duel in 2004, and a tight split decision that favored him in their second match in 2008 to hopefully put a close to their "unfinished business."

GMA Network prepared a grand line up of festivities at the Quirino Grandstand--in a special on-ground event to be hosted by Dingdong Dantes, with the pop trio La Diva singing the Philippine national anthem, while the UST singers perform the Mexican national anthem.

An all-star cast led by Kapuso artists Ogie Alcasid, Iza Calzado, Jay R, Kyla, Rachel Ann Go, Mark Herras, Kris Bernal, Aljur Abrenica, and many others will grace the event which will air live from 2:30 to 4:00 PM over GMA-7. The special will also be seen live and exclusive via internet video streaming on GMA News Online (www.gmanews.tv).

The crowd will be further treated to a taped as live episode of Manny, Many Prizes, the Saturday game show hosted by Pacquiao himself. Joining Pacman are his co-hosts Paolo Contis, Rhian Ramos, Gladys Guevarra, Pekto, Moymoy Palaboy, and Onyok Velasco along with guest stars Jinkee Pacquiao, Wency Cornejo, Jett Pangan, Imelda Papin, Claire dela Fuente, and many others. The episode will be telecast same day at 6:00 PM.

Tickets for Manny Many Prizes will be distributed via three booths located along South Drive, Quirino Grandstand (Museo Pambata side) beginning 6:00 AM, but spectators will be allowed entry as early as 8:00 AM.

Catch the opening of the Pacquiao-Marquez World Press Tour this Saturday, September 3. The Saturday morning Manila Hotel Press Con featuring the two fighters will air live on GMA News TV (GNTV) at 10:00 AM, while exclusive interviews with the two fighters will air over GMA's 24 Oras, Kapuso Mo, Jessica Soho, Startalk, Showbiz Central, and flagship AM station DZBB 594 khz.

The main event, the much awaited boxing match, will air straight from Las Vegas on November 13 only on GMA-7.

Posted by JED on Friday, September 2, 2011 , under | comments (0)




Up-front and personal, young television commercial and film director Paul Soriano talks about his life abroad, his youth, his dream movie, and his relationship with his stepfather and real father with King of Talk Boy Abunda this Saturday.

Born and raised in Los Angeles, California, he returned to the Philippines after seven years to study elementary and high school. He went back to the US in college to study filmmaking, but decided to settle and pursue his dreams here in the Philippines.

Direk Paul admits that being identified with his father, Jeric Soriano, a known director and producer, and his grandfather Nestor de Villa, a famous actor, made it difficult for him to establish his own name but he was determined and persistent.

He is a certified behind-the-scenes man who stops at nothing to make his name known as a director, which earned him appearances on different newspapers, magazines and talk shows.

Now, Direk Paul Soriano is proud to present his newest project, an inspirational family drama “Thelma,” which is about the life of a young runner, who wants to pursue her dreams for her family.

“Thelma” is based on the true story of runners interviewed by Direk Paul Soriano and Maja Salvador, who, after her successful series “Minsan Lang Kita Iibigin,” plays the role of Thelma.

More revelations are revealed as famous director, Paul Soriano, seats on the ‘hot seat’ this Saturday after “Banana Split” on “The Bottomline with Boy Abunda.”

Anton Yelchin Confronted by Evil in “Fright Night”

Posted by JED on , under | comments (0)




With the feature-film blockbusters “Star Trek” and “Terminator: Salvation” among his credits, Anton Yelchin stars in the pivotal role of Charley, the teenager confronted with an evil force in the form of his vampire next-door neighbor, in DreamWorks Pictures' horror-thriller “Fright Night.”

Yelchin was the filmmakers’ first choice for the role of Charley because of the actor’s ability to create rich performances that give more weight to his characters. Yelchin was excited about giving greater dimension to Charley. “I like the relationships in the story,” Yelchin explains. “Charley versus Jerry, Charley and his girlfriend, Charley and his friend Ed who he has shunned are all interesting elements. With director Craig Gillespie at the helm, we got to develop the nuances of all the relationships.”

Q: What made you want to do this movie?
Anton Yelchin: There were two reasons. The first one was that I thought the script was very solid, with a very relatable arc for my character of Charley. He’s a kid who loses track of what's valuable to him and then he’s faced with something that threatens to take away everything that is precious. He struggles through a lot of guilt and remorse but overcomes that to protect the people he cares about. That's a very relatable story to me.

The second was that Craig Gillespie was attached to direct. I was a fan of his movie “Lars and the Real Girl” and I thought he was such a cool choice to make a horror genre film that's a bit more mainstream. He’s known as someone who likes really interesting characters and makes actor’s movies. It turned out to be true. Craig is very much an actor’s director. He gives you a lot of freedom to create your character.

Q: Did you see the first “Fright Night”?
Yelchin: Oh, yeah, I love the first film. I think it's really intelligent and enjoyable. I think it also represents the horror genre’s transition during the 1980s from classic Hollywood horror into a more entertaining, very self-conscious, funny, campy genre.

Q: You play a teenager in “Fright Night.” How was that for you?
Yelchin: I played an architect in “Like Crazy” and a week later I was in New Mexico shooting “Fright Night.” I'm happy it turned out that way, because the movies are so different and the characters are completely different people. That always gives me a certain level of satisfaction because that's what I try and do in my career, is shake it up a bit. Otherwise, I don't understand the point of this job. You have to try and take different roles every time.

Q: Imogen Poots plays your girlfriend in the movie. Is there a difference between English and American actresses?
Yelchin: I've been very lucky. The last couple of films I’ve done I’ve worked with Jennifer Lawrence, Imogen and Felicity Jones, all of whom are extremely talented and intelligent, regardless of their nationality. I think these women are just very interesting people and I feel lucky to have been able to work with them.

Q: You were born in Russia but immigrated to the U.S. when you were six months old. Are you interested in making films in Russia?
Yelchin: I worked on a film there once. It was a very different experience. For me, it’s always about the filmmaker and I'm not particularly interested in going to Russia just to work in Russia. There are filmmakers there that I would really like to work with, though. If Alexander Sokurov was making a movie and called me up and said, ”Come make this movie with me,” I would be there in an instant. I’d also go to Austria to work with Michael Haneke or Denmark to work with Lars Von Trier. It isn’t about the country they’re in, it’s about their talent.

Q: What makes you scared?
Yelchin: What scares more than anything is probably the nature of humanity and the kind of horrible things that people can do to one another. That’s partly what “Fright Night” touches on.

Opening across the Philippines on Sept. 07 in 3D and regular format, “Fright Night is a DreamWorks Picture distributed by Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures International through Columbia Pictures.

Keeping it to 20 in “What's Your Number?”

Posted by JED on , under | comments (0)





An interesting cocktail of a frank and lively sexual content but with a genuine romantic heart, “What’s Your Number” winds back Ally Darling (Anna Faris) to the men she’d dated after reading a magazine article on the average number of lovers women should have in their lifetime.

Ally becomes convinced she’s reached the limit of sexual partners a woman can have before she’s deemed unmarriageable (except maybe, as Dr. Fig notes, she lives in New Zealand). With celibacy as a non-starter, Ally embarks on a mission to find a mate, without adding to her number, by seeking the colorful and strange assortment of lovers from her past; she wonders, are they married, available, gay …dead?

Having been fired from her job and at the same time an ended relationship, Ally embarks on a quest to find the best “ex” of her life, by any means necessary for her chance at true love. Helping in her quest is her new neighbor Colin, played by Chris Evans. Seeking a haven from the woman he’s brought home the night before, Colin comes to Ally’s rescue when she tries to disentangle herself from her booze-riddled mistake of the night before. Ally and Colin click, and even though Ally’s romantic sights are aimed entirely in retrospect, she has found in Colin a new friend and ally. “Ally and Colin enhance each other but don’t necessarily live for each other,” says Evans. “They’ve helped each other become better versions of themselves, but they don’t need each other to exist.”




Faris and Evans nicely balance one another, with Evans displaying a sense of grounded, physical stability while Faris provides a series of fluid, deft and comical transitions that always surprise. “When Ally and Colin meet, there’s a lot of tension between them,” notes Faris. “Ally’s kind of disgusted with Colin because she sees women coming in and out of his apartment. She thinks he’s just this man-whore. Ally wants much more for her own life, so she’s really annoyed when sees somebody who’s lackadaisical in their own lifestyle – probably because she’s envious. Eventually they come to understand one another.”

Colin comes from a family of cops and detectives, so he’s good at digging up dirt,” adds Evans. “That’s why Ally enlists his help. And he’s a bit of a womanizer, and is very ‘alpha.’ He’s a likable guy but he’s not exactly husband material. But slowly Colin realizes that Ally’s the person he’s supposed to be with, and that opens a lot more doors for him.”

Executive producer Nan Morales confirms that Ally and Colin’s first meeting is far from auspicious. “When she meets him, the audience will think, ‘No, Ally no!’ It’s like what her friends say: ‘You don’t want to go out with that guy; he’s dangerous, he’s sexy, he can trick you.’ But this is how Colin lives; he’s honest about it. This is a lesson Ally needs to learn; she needs to own who she is in order to go to the next level in her life.”




“What’s Your Number” opens October 5 in theaters from 20th Century Fox to be distributed by Warner Bros.
