Scrat’s Earth-Changing Chase in “Ice Age 4: Continental Drift”

Scrat’s Earth-Changing Chase in “Ice Age 4: Continental Drift”

Forget what you’ve learned in geology about the continents forming as a result of massive tectonic turbulence and volcanic eruptions tearing land masses apart. “Ice Age 4: Continental Drift” reveals that these seismic shifts came about from Scrat’s misadventures.

Two million years ago, one global-shattering event changed everything. Scrat, the world’s most lovable prehistoric squirrel-rat is about to rewrite history in “Ice Age 4: Continental Drift.” The film reunites us with Scrat as he’s going about his usual business: he has grabbed the acorn, set it down on the ground – and suddenly a mountain is torn apart and the earth itself opens up, separating land masses into the seven continents. Scrat hurtles toward the earth’s core, triggering massive earthquakes, which in turn isolates Manny, Diego and Sid from the rest of the herd. Scrat’s continental crack-up has cast adrift Manny (voiced by Ray Romano), Diego (Dennis Leary) and Sid (John Leguizamo) from the rest of the herd, including Manny’s beloved wife Ellie (Queen Latifah) and their teenaged daughter Peaches (who was born in 2009’s “Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs” and is voiced by music-actress Keke Palmer).

From his introduction as a breakout character in “Ice Age” to becoming a celebrated movie icon, Scrat has brought joy to countless moviegoers – and to the filmmakers who bring him to life. “There’s no better or more enjoyable character to animate than Scrat,” says director Steve Martino. “Who else can you knock around, smash around – and he just keeps going after that nut?!” Adds supervising animator Nick Bruno: “Scrat is why I’m in animation. His adventure in this movie is like a classic tale, where he sees his goal, goes after it, and gets his butt kicked. But this time, the stakes for him and for the herd couldn’t be higher.

Meanwhile, let’s hear it from Scrat whose thoughts will only be read and heard in the Q&A that follows:

Q: Hi Scrat. First things first. Is your acorn safe?
Scrat: Define ‘safe.’

Q: Buried in a place that only you know about.
Scrat: Not exactly (fidgets).

Q: Where is it right now?
Scrat: It’s within arm’s reach – well, almost.

Q: Why is it so hard to hold on to your prized nut and keep it safe?
Scrat: That is a question I ask myself every day. Every hour of every day. Every minute of every hour. Every second of every minute. Every nanosecond of every second. I ask myself that question a lot.

Q: Some might say your interest in acorns borders on obsession. How would you respond?
Scrat: Are you saying that I’m nuts? Oooh nuts. Mmmmm, nuts… (rubs hands together).

Q: What have you learned over the course of the last few years?
Scrat: A coconut is not a giant acorn. And if you roast an acorn for long enough, it will turn into a large popcorn kernel. This is not to be recommended.

Q: Is it true you found a treasure map recently?
A: I did!

Q: What does X mark the spot of?
Scrat: A whole island filled with beautiful golden acorns! Oooooh…

Q: Wow. That must be very appealing to someone of your disposition. What do you think the probability of ever finding that treasure is?
Scrat: Hmmm (scratches head). Realistically? Maybe one in a hundred trillion? I’ll happily die trying though.

Q: Is it hard to live with yourself, knowing that your past actions have led to earthquakes, volcanoes, continental drift and global warming?
Scrat: Huh? I’m just trying to bury my nut, dude. Don’t get all heavy on me.

Q: You’re one of the only living animals to have visited the earth’s core. What is it like there?
Scrat: It’s hot.

Q: You sound like Paris Hilton.
Scrat: Who?!

Follow Scrat when “Ice Age 4: Continental Drift” opens July 12 in theaters nationwide (in 2D and 3D) from 20th Century Fox to be distributed by Warner Bros.

Jerry Sandusky Jury Reaches Verdict: Guilty and Life Imprisonment


A Pennsylvania jury on Jerry Sandusky's sexual abuse case has bring down its verdict after 21 hours of deliberations on June 21.

The 68-year-old former Penn State assistant football coach has found guilty on 45 of 48 counts for abusing 10 boys over 15 years.

Although Sandusky denied the charges, the panel's decision was based on eight accusers who say Sandusky molested them. They also heard about two other alleged victims whose identities remain unknown to investigators.

In addition, former Penn State Assistant Coach Mike McQueary also testified he saw Sandusky abusing a young boy in a campus shower.

A lawyer for one of Sandusky's six adopted children also said his father abused him while growing up.

The judge then revoked Sandusky's bail and ordered his arrest. He faces up to life in prison when he's sentenced in about 90 days.

Roderick Paulate Searches for His Protégé

Roderick Paulate Searches for His Protégé

Multi-awarded actor and comedian Roderick Paulate will be joining other entertainment industry veterans Jolina Magdangal, Ricky Davao, Philip Salvador and Gina Alajar in searching for the next ultimate protege via the GMA-7 artista search “Protégé: The Battle for the Big Artista Break.”

Although the search is slated to begin airing in July, as early as now, each of the mentors have already spent days screening tens of thousands of hopefuls coming from all over the Philippines.

Last June 20, Roderick Paulate was at the SM Mall of Asia Music Hall for the call-back screening of those who were shortlisted during the Metro Manila/NCR audition held in the same venue last Tuesday and Wednesday. It was the last of a series of auditions for Protégé held at various key cities in Luzon, Visayas and Mindanao.

Talking about how he feels being part of Protege, Roderick said the he is enjoying the job and is very excited because he will be working with his closest friends in the industry as a fellow mentor.

Excited din ako na makakuha ng isang magaling na artista. Fulfillment rin sa akin yun kung sakali na masasabi kong ako ang naging mentor niyan.”

He may be a seasoned actor and certainly has the right and ability to mentor a protege but he admits that he still feels “tensed” about the work ahead.

Mejo nakaka-tense din sa part namin as mentors kasi we don’t have much time. Although alam na din naman namin ang mga responsibility namin, sa loob ng time lang na binibigay sa amin, e kailangan maka-tulong na kaagad kami sa mga magiging protege,” said the comedian.

Although he is very busy with both his TV show “Tweets For My Sweet” and his job as a public servant, Roderick said that he will find time for his protege and that he will take his job as mentor very seriously.

Aside from having fun, gusto ko rin talagang seryosohin e, gusto kong tignan kung sino yung magiging pride and fulfillment din namin na maka-come up kami ng new breed of artists tapos makakuha tayo ng mga magagaling na madedevelop natin talaga for GMA-7,” he said.

Since the search is basically a battle among the mentors’ proteges, should viewers also expect it to be a tense competition among the mentors?

Actually kaya din ako excited kasi parang kumpetisyon among the mentors din ang magiging tema [ng show], so kailangan makakuha kami ng mga magagaling na artista na bata pa lamang pero masasabi nating malaki ang potential at panlaban talaga. That’s why siguro ‘pag nakapili ako kaagad, I will really talk to them. Kakausapin ko talaga sila na ka-careerin natin ito at aalamin kung sino talaga yung lalabas na magsa-shine sa kanila,” he said.

Is physical appearance a factor that he considers in looking for proteges?

Of course, ever since naman dito sa entertainment industry, plus factor talaga yung maganda, gwapo, yung may tindig, yung looks, yung height. But aside from that, hahanapin ko talaga yung may acting ability, para naman yung character niya, hindi lang siya maganda, may texture din, may kakaiba sa kanya na dapat ilabas dun sa batang yun,” Roderick said.

Kasi kung puro maganda lang ‘yan mejo maraming papalit na maganda e. Kung guwapo lang yan, maraming papalit na guwapo sa susunod,” he added.

What characteristics does he look for in a protege?

Naniniwala ako na ang hinahanap ko dito yung tatagal sa industriya. Na sasabihin niyang ‘I am an actress and also a star.’ Yun ang gusto ko, yung hindi lang pang-star, yung pang-actress din na talagang maipagmamalaki natin.

I really believe na itong industriya natin, kailangang tulungan natin na makapag-produce ng mga magagaling na artista, hindi lang mga cute o magaganda,” said Roderick.

Even before the screening began, Roderick already gave the aspirants a very helpful piece of advise:

Ang sabi ko naman sa kanila, ilabas nila yung totoong personality nila. Ang importante, alam nila ang talent nila. Yun naman ang number one na pakiusap ko: ‘pag umakyat ka sa stage at nag-audition ka, siguraduhin mong meron kang talent, siguraduhin mong meron kang ibibigay sa tao.”

Roderick feels sorry for those who, unfortunately, didn’t make it to the screening. He genuinely empathize with them since he, too, was once rejected on his first audition.

Ako, na-turn down din ako before e. Yung una kong audition rejected ako e,” he shared.

Asked why he had to audition when in fact he has done lead roles in his past films, he said: “Baliktad ako e, nag-bida muna ako tapos nag-audition. Noong araw kasi, yung mga artista, nag-o-audition pa rin parang Hollywood. Nung pangalawang pelikula ko, nag-audition kami nun ni Gina Alajar, yung ‘Kaibigan Ko Ang Sto. Nino.”

How was auditioning before compared to today?

Of course mas maganda yung sitwasyon nila ngayon no, parang mas provided sila ng mga kailangan nila. Before kasi kami tatayo ka lang dun tapos bahala ka nang gamitin ang space mo e, tapos nakakatakot ang mga director noon. E ngayon, we’re very kind to them and we help them.”

What can you say about aspirants who look of stardom as a means of stepping out of poverty and usually, they would tell their ‘melo-dramatic’ stories during the auditions in order to somehow get the sympathy of the audition masters?

Ako natotouch ako dun personally kasi natutuwa naman ako sa intention at motivation ng bata na gustong makatulong sa pamilya, that’s very nice, but of course, hindi ako dapat maging-bias, hindi ako dapat maimpluwensiyahan ng ganung kwento kasi ang purpose natin dito ay makakuha ng magaling na artista,” Roderick said.

Who among those who auditioned passed Roderick’s standards? Well, that’s what viewers should find out when Protege launches next month.

Dolphy Sees Death is Coming; Says He is Ready to Face His Maker

Dolphy (Rodolfo Vera Quizon Sr. in real life), is currently in critical condition at the Makati Medical Center.

According to his son, Eric Quizon, his father was diagnosed with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) five years ago.

In his autobiography "Dolphy: Hindi Ko Ito Narating Ng Mag-Isa," Dolphy said he has always been ready to face his Maker.

"The inevitable will come. Kung dumating na ang oras mo, hindi ka na kokontra, wala ka nang magagawa. It's your time. Sabi nga nila, alam mo, 'pag malapit na. You feel it," Dolphy said.

The King of Comedy also revealed that he already bought his own coffin.

"Matagal na itong chismis; I will confirm it. Mayro'n na nga akong kabaong bronze. No'n ko pa kinuha. Isa din ako sa kauna-unahang bumili ng family estate plan sa Loyola Memorial Park sa Marikina," he said.

In his interview with TV Patrol anchor Korina Sanchez on Wednesday night, June 20, Eric said that when Dolphy was diagnosed with COPD he already talked to his children about his last wishes.

"Ito nga noong nalaman niyang mayroon siyang COPD nag-umpisa na siyang kausapin kami. Kumbaga noong time palang na yon, kumbaga inayos na niya lahat yung mga dapat ayusin. So naayos na namin yon," Eric said.

Update: In a brief presscon, Eric said his dad is again suffering from pneumonia. It is the 11th time in 11 months that the Dolphy is fighting the battle, he added.

Let's all pray for Dolphy's recovery. May he continue to put laughter on our faces.

Dance the Shuffle with Sid in ‘Ice Age 4: Continental Drift’

Dance the Shuffle with Sid in ‘Ice Age 4: Continental Drift’

Teeming with boundless energy, catastrophic creativity and defying continental odds, Sid the sloth (John Leguizamo) is back with his best friends Manny the mammoth (Ray Romano) and Diego the tiger (Denis Leary) along with Scrat in the latest adventure for all in “Ice Age 4: Continental Drift.

While the earth is being subdivided into seven continents due to Scrat’s misadventures, Sid’s long-lost family suddenly appears. Sid is excited when his relatives arrive, seemingly happy to be reunited with him. But they leave just as quickly as they came, intentionally ditching his crotchety Granny (Wanda Sykes). Granny is inadvertently swept out to sea with the trio, making Sid’s job surviving the adventure that much harder when he must take care of her every need along the way.

Sid’s a lovable guy and always wants to do things his way, which often leads to catastrophe,” says John Leguizamo, who once again brings his unique vocalizations and performance to the character. This time the catastrophe – his Granny – has come to him. “Sid has long wanted to be reunited with his family because everyone seems to have a family but him,” adds Leguizamo. “And all of a sudden, here they are. They’re with him, and then they’re not — leaving him with Granny.”

Granny is a surprise castaway when Manny, Diego and Sid are swept out to sea on an iceberg following Scrat’s continental crack-up. Moreover, Manny, Sid, Diego and the members of their burgeoning group are changing. “They’re all evolving, and we’re along with them for the ride, physically and emotionally,” says producer/writer Lori Forte. “But however much they change, they’re still the characters we know and love.”

Indeed, the “Ice Age” extended family is far from conventional, and it’s certainly a distant relative of perfection, but the fact that it is a family is nothing less than ideal. “The message of the importance of family is integral to the ‘Ice Age’ movies,” says director Steve Martino. “Audiences around the world enjoy stories about families that work well together. Even though our characters are imperfect, and very different from one another, they always work things out and they’re the better for it.”

In the meantime, dance the Sid Shuffle:

“Ice Age 4: Continental Drift” opens nationwide in cinemas on July 12.

Catch these waves of meet and greet with the Ice Age’s Sid and Scrat dancing the Sid Shuffle at SM Marikina (June 22); SM Batangas (June 23); SM Lipa (June 24); SM Sta. Rosa (June 27); SM Olongapo (June 28); SM Fairview (June 29); SM Tarlac (June 30); SM Mall of Asia and North Edsa (July 1); Malugay Caltex Station (July 4 and 5); Robinson’s Galleria, Trinoma and Market!Market!

GMA-7's ‘One True Love’ Beats ABS-CBN's ‘Dahil Sa Pag-ibig’

GMA-7's ‘One True Love’ Beats ABS-CBN's ‘Dahil Sa Pag-ibig’

GMA Network’s latest primetime drama, One True Love, instantly captivated the hearts of TV audiences after posting high numbers during its pilot week, according to data from the industry’s widely trusted ratings service provider Nielsen TV Audience Measurement.

Based on overnight household data recorded in Mega Manila from June 11 to 15, One True Love scored 38.4 share points, ahead of ABS-CBN’s Dahil Sa Pag-ibig’s 35.2 points and TV5’s Runaway’s 10 points. Mega Manila comprises 58 percent of total television households nationwide.

Viewers instantly fell in love with the characters of star-crossed lovers Tisoy and Elize played by Alden Richards and Louise delos Reyes. One True Love introduces Alden and Louise in their first starring roles on primetime, together with newest Kapuso Agot Isidro, Raymond Bagatsing, and Jean Garcia.

Proof to the overwhelming success and immense fame of Alden and Louise’s loveteam were the thousands of screaming fans present during their recent mall show and campus tour in Cagayan de Oro and Bukidnon last June 17 and June 18.

Pandemonium broke out when Alden and Louise showed up and took the centerstage. The mere mention of their names drew ear-deafening screams and cheers from the audience who chanted “Tisoy” and “Elize”, Alden and Louise’s character names in the program. “Nakakataba ng puso ang naging mainit na pagtanggap sa aming lahat at masayang-masaya kami na tinatangkilik nila ang One True Love,” Alden said.

The drama series is expected to set even higher ratings in the coming days especially when Tisoy (Alden) and Elize (Louise) start hanging out together and begin their special friendship. Troy (Lucho Ayala), on the other hand, despises the growing closeness between Tisoy and Elize, so he pressures Carlos (Raymond) to stop Elize from seeing Tisoy.

Will Elize follow her father’s orders and end her ties with Tisoy? What will happen if Ellen (Jean Garcia) discovers the connection between Tisoy and Carlos? Will Tisoy eventually give up on Elize?

Expect more revelations and twists as the drama continues in One True Love weeknights after Makapiling Kang Muli on GMA Telebabad.
