‘The Amazing Race Philippines’ Top 3 Teams Revealed, Airs Finale Tonight 



The three-way battle for glory and P2-million gets more intense as The Amazing Race Philippines (TARP) reaches the Final Pit Stop this Saturday (December 15) after Talentadong Pinoy Worldwide on TV5.

After 12 gruelling legs which tested each team’s strength and determination to stay ahead of the game, the country’s biggest and most expensive reality show this year is set to begin its final leg in one of the world’s biggest cities, Davao, with the final three teams - LJ and CJ (team celebrity friends), Marc and Kat (team gym buddies) and Fausto and Dayal (team magbayaw).

The Davao leg promises viewers some heart-stopping action as the last three teams will be put to test if they can get past the crocodiles and dangers of a motocross ride.

The remaining three teams bested eight teams - reunited friends Sheena and Gee (4th place), amigas Saida and Jervi (5th place), magkumpares Boom and Cheng (6th place), father and daughter Ed and Angel (7th place), bombshells Dani and Mish (8th place), Alabang housewives Pamela and Vanessa (9th place), football brothers and Anton and Armand (10th place) and dating couple Crystel and Mykey (11th place).

With host Derek Ramsay, the 11 teams were able to explore the beauty of the Philippines as they traversed some of the best spots in the country. Kicking off the race in Manila, the teams journeyed to Ilocos, Mountain Province and Baguio in the north, Central Luzon’s Subic and Clark to the Southern parts of Albay, Cebu, Boracay, Sabang Island, Puerto Princesa, and Davao - in what could be the biggest and most exciting race of their lives.

For the past six weeks, The Amazing Race Philippines has become one of TV5’s most top-rated primetime shows for 2012. To thank its loyal viewers, the 11 TARP teams held a grand fans’ day last Thursday at the Kapatid Network’s studio in Novaliches.

Vault Magazine Awarded as Asia’s Best New Magazine



ABS-CBN Publishing’s Vault, a lifestyle magazine for the modern, sophisticated man, was named winner of Best New Magazine at the 2012 Asian Publishing Awards (APA), held recently in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. It also received an excellence award in the category Best in Design, Layout and Presentation.

The Asian Publishing Awards recognizes best multimedia practices in magazine, book, and corporate communications sectors. This year, the APA winners were culled from a strong field of 157 entries involving 34 media companies from 8 countries.

At the ceremony, Vault was cited for “addressing a clearly defined target of upscale, high net worth Filipino males. The publishers have identified a gap and created a fresh looking format.”

We operate in a very crowded media landscape where it is getting more and more challenging to engage multitasking readers. This is why we are very proud of Vault magazine’s achievements since it launched last year. This recognition reaffirms our belief that great content, innovation and the unyielding commitment to fulfill the needs of our readers will make the difference in today’s busy marketplace. Vault, the new player- the rookie brand, made a difference. For an organization that takes pride in building successful homegrown brands amidst so many local and foreign players, this is a remarkable feat,” said Christina Lopez, Content Director and Head of Marketing for ABS-CBN Publishing, in her acceptance remarks.

Anticipating the rapid growth in viewing magazines online, ABS-CBN Publishing simultaneously launched the magazine’s print and digital edition in May 2011, a first in the local publishing industry. Vault’s editorial team is led by broadcast journalist and host David Celdran as Editor in Chief, with Karl FM Castro as Art Director.

Celdran saw Vault’s win as a “nice surprise.”

Indeed, Asia is experiencing the most dynamic growth in publishing in the world. To be chosen as the best new magazine in this highly competitive region can only be seen as an honor not just for ABS-CBN, but for the Philippine publishing industry as well,” he added.

Since its release in 2011, it has developed a strong following among its niche audience.

It builds around in-depth content on global luxury brands, unique experiences, and fine products that represent the best achievements of the human hand. Its approach to luxury is informed by creativity, craftsmanship, passion, and heritage.

Seeing the award as an inspiration for the magazine and its staff, Celdran said, “Vault will continue to stick to its core identity: a visually driven and highly informative magazine for readers with refined tastes. But the award reminds us that our appeal is global as well. In the coming issues, expect even more international content as we continue to cover the most exclusive experiences and premium products around the globe.”

Vault is available in good bookshops nationwide. The digital edition is available on Zinio.com and through the iTunes App Store.

Visually Stunning Wonder “Life of Pi” Opens in Cinemas Starting January 9

Visually Stunning Wonder “Life of Pi” Opens in Cinemas Starting January 9


 
From 20th Century Fox, the studio behind “Titanic” and “Avatar” comes an epic motion picture that will allow audience to experience the grand spectacle of nature and gasp at a young boy’s coming of age through disaster and salvation in “Life of Pi” directed by Academy Award winner Ang Lee

Based on the book by Yann Martel that has sold more than seven million copies and spent years on the bestseller lists, “Life of Pi” takes place over three continents, two oceans and a wide universe of imagination.  Lee’s vision, coupled with stunning 3D visuals, has turned a novel long thought un-filmable into a thrillingly audacious mix of grand storytelling and powerful and provocative themes.

 

 
“Life of Pi” is Ang Lee’s first foray in 3D filmmaking starring newcomer Suraj Sharma who takes on the titular role of Pi.  The story revolves around Piscine Patel, (known as Pi) who lives with his zoo keeping family in Pondicherry. They decide to emigrate to Canada, taking their animals along with them and set off on a huge freighter ship, steaming from India across the Pacific. But a terrible storm destroys the ship. The family and most of the animals perish. Pi survives, stranded on a lifeboat with several animals. Ultimately it is just Pi and a Bengal tiger who miraculously survive 227 days at sea.

The two castaways face unimaginable challenges, including nature’s majestic grandeur and fury, which lash their small lifeboat.  One particularly monstrous storm becomes a spiritual experience for Pi, leading him to question God’s plan for him.  “I’ve lost everything!  I surrender!  What more do you want?” Pi rails at the sky. But through it all, he never loses hope.  Pi finds joy from something as simple as an old survival manual, as well as from the solace of the ocean’s beauty: the bioluminescent, rainbow hues of magnificent schools of flying fish; the shimmering blues of the ocean’s swells; and a radiant humpback whale that streaks to the surface of the ocean.

In telling Pi’s story, Mr. Lee pushes the boundaries of cutting-edge motion picture technologies.  “Life of Pi” represents a moment when the science and art of filmmaking have jumped forward, as it did with the visual effects of “Titanic,” the 3D revolution of “Avatar,” and the CGI work in “Rise of the Planet of the Apes,” which brought unprecedented emotion and depth to the character of Caesar.  And like Caesar, Life of Pi’s Richard Parker is a fully-realized, accessible character, whom you’ll believe was actually on that lifeboat with Suraj Sharma, who portrays Pi.

The attention to detail throughout Life of Pi is also impressive.  Production designer David Gropman based Pi’s lifeboat “on archival drawings of a 1940s steel life boat”. He commissioned Haan Lee (Ang Lee’s son) to design Pi’s raft, that the character builds to separate himself from Richard Parker. ”I asked Haan to imagine himself as Pi, using the materials he would have had on the lifeboat: oars, life jackets, floorboards, etc.  What Hann crafted was amazing, a triangle with a circle in the middle, which was a beautiful expression of ‘pi’.”

And through Mr. Lee’s use of 3D, the audience will be with Pi and Richard Parker, experiencing these extraordinary and visually stunning moments, immersed like never before in an epic movie adventure interwoven with an emotional and spiritual journey.

 

 
“Life of Pi” opens January 9 in cinemas nationwide from 20th Century Fox to be distributed by Warner Bros.

High Frame Rate 3D Version of “The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey” in Select Philippine Cinemas


 
Want to be fully immersed in Middle-earth?

Then watch “The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey” in its glorious High Frame Rate (HFR) 3D version in the following theaters: Glorietta 4, Greenbelt 3, Greenhills, Robinsons Ermita, Robinsons Galleria, SM Cebu, SM Mall of Asia, SM Megamall, SM North Edsa and SM Southmall.

For the first time, director Peter Jackson utilized state-of-the-art digital cameras to record the action in “The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey” in 3D at an unprecedented 48 frames per second (fps) for release in High Frame Rate 3D (HFR 3D), as well as all the standard formats.

We want ‘The Hobbit’ films to be a visual experience that goes several steps beyond ‘The Lord of the Rings,’” Jackson says. “3D didn’t really exist in mainstream cinema ten years ago at the level it does now, and we’ve shot the movie at 48 fps, which makes it the first feature film to be shot using today’s High Frame Rate technology.”

 


Jackson once again drew together members of the cast of “The Lord of the Rings,” including Ian McKellen as the Wizard Gandalf the Grey, Cate Blanchett as Elf Queen Galadriel, Hugo Weaving as Elf Lord Elrond, and Andy Serkis once again playing Gollum. Framing the story are Elijah Wood reprising the role of Frodo Baggins, and Ian Holm as Old Bilbo Baggins, who recalls his great adventure prior to leaving Bag End. Leading the international ensemble cast are Martin Freeman as Bilbo Baggins, the Hobbit at the center of the tale, and Richard Armitage as the Dwarf warrior Thorin Oakenshield.

Together, this team of filmmakers and artists embarked on a new adventure - once again shooting three movies back-to-back to create a new motion picture trilogy, one that begins with a Hobbit living in a hole in the ground, on the brink of an incredible, and quite unexpected, journey.

A production of New Line Cinema and Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Pictures (MGM), “The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey” will be released in the Philippines by Warner Bros. Pictures on December 13, 2012.

 


The second film, “The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug,” will be released on December 13, 2013, to be followed by “The Hobbit: There and Back Again” on July 18, 2014.

MVP Telethon ‘Tulong Kapatid’ Raises Over P100-M for Typhoon Pablo Victims



Tulong Kapatid received an overwhelming response from Filipinos all over the world during its telethon for the victims of Typhoon Pablo. Not only was the group able to meet and exceed its P100 million-target in six hours for the affected communities-Tulong Kapatid also encouraged other organizations to step up their efforts in responding to the pleas of those in need.

As the joint corporate social responsibility and disaster response initiative of the MVP Group of Companies, Tulong Kapatid led the rally of support for those severely affected by the recent typhoon. Despite the limited preparation time, the telethon saw Kapatid stars, news personalities and respected business leaders coming together for this worthy cause. The event was held both at the Kapatid Network’s Novaliches and Broadway studios and was simulcast over TV5, AksyonTV and Radyo Singko 92.3 NewsFM, pre-empting the Kapatid Network’s primetime programming.




Speaking from Seoul, group chairman Manuel V. Pangilinan shared in an interview with NEWS5 Chief Luchi Cruz-Valdes that a SMS from US Ambassador Harry Thomas last Sunday prompted him to initiate a telethon at the soonest possible time. He was also moved by accounts of MVP Group’s corporate social responsibility forces including TV5′s Alagang Kapatid Foundation and emergency response unit RESCUE5 who had seen Pablo’s wrath firsthand.

Addressing his fellow Filipinos, MVP urged individuals and corporations to give no matter how big or small: “Panahon ngayon ng Pasko. We cannot let our people down.” The renowned philanthropist also told survivors of Pablo not to lose hope despite unimaginable damages the super typhoon caused.

President Benigno S Aquino III also delivered a special message during the telethon and encouraged every Filipino to help in any way to help the people of Mindanao. “Nagpapasalamat po tayo sa TV5. Malaki po ang maitutulong ng inyong inisyatiba upang maipadama sa ating mga kababayan na hindi sila nag-iisa,” said the President.

NEWS5 Chief Luchi Cruz-Valdes led TV5′s news organization in delivering disaster recovery-related stories with anchors Cheryl Cosim, Raffy Tulfo and Erwin Tulfo who reported live from New Bataan in Compostela Valley.




On the entertainment front, Superstar Nora Aunor and Pinoy Explorer host Aga Muhlach were among the many celebrities who donated to the worthy cause. Kapatid stars and noted personalities like were also onhand as they took calls from fellow Filipinos keen to contribute what they could for the benefit of the communities affected by Pablo. SPORTS5′s Aaron Atayde and Jessica Mendoza, Team SMART Gilas Pilipinas 2.0 coach Chot Reyes and players from the Meralco Bolts and San Beda Red Lions also manned the phones during the telethon.




Tulong Kapatid‘s telephone lines remain open for cash pledges. You may call hotlines 689-555/671-5555/936-5555 for your pledge and inquiries. You can also help by texting Tulong to 4483 for Smart, Talk N’ Text and Sun Cellular. Donations via Paypal can be sent to Alagang Kapatid’s Paypal account.
