Katrina Halili Bares Life's Secrets in "Magpakailanman" this Saturday

Controversial actress Katrina Halili may have been knocked down by the toughest of life’s tribulations - much worse than any situation a woman her age could possibly be in - but she managed to get back on her feet. Today, she has moved beyond the hauntings of her sex video scandal and is determined to regain everything she had lost: career, dignity and her personal sense of purpose.

For the very first time, Katrina, will bare her life’s story this Saturday in a very special episode of GMA’s drama anthology program, “Magpakailanman,” hosted by veteran journalist Mel Tiangco.

What’s more interesting is that Katrina and her boyfriend Kris Lawrence will be portraying themselves in the said episode. Also starring is their baby girl Katrence who will appear in the latter part of the story.

Although the episode will inevitably touch on the very sensitive sex video issue, it won’t dwell on that. Katrina’s relationship with her family — especially with her grandmother — and her romance with Kris is expected to take a bigger chunk of the episode.

Also starring are Anita Linda, who portrays Katrina’s grandmother who passed away during the times when Katrina was in the midst of the controversy, Allan Paule and Timi Cruz (as Katrina’s parents) and Marky Lopez (as Katrina’s assistant).

The episode is directed by Gina Alajar, who also helmed the previous week’s episode starring Joyce Ching and Ehra Madrigal. The said episode entitled “Pakawalang Anghel” won in nationwide TV ratings against ABS-CBN’s “Maaalaala Mo Kaya (MMK)” based on Nielsen’s overnight household ratings data. “Magpakailanman” scored an average or 23% while “MMK” only garnered 19.1%. “Magpakailanman‘s” lead was even wider in Urban Luzon where it scored 25.8% against MMK’s 16%.

Sneak Peek: Dreamworks' "Turbo" Movie Photos

Sneak Peek: Dreamworks' "Turbo" Movie Photos

Dreamworks is set to change the pace in racing when it finally releases “Turbo” in theaters worldwide on July 19 starring the voices of Ryan Reynolds, Paul Giamatti, Snoop Dogg, Maya Rudolph, Ben Schwartz and Samuel L. Jackson


In “Turbo,” a snail named Theo (voiced by Reynolds) dreams of being the greatest racer in the world making him an oddity in the slow and cautious community he belongs. An impossible dream of an ordinary snail comes true when luck struck him with an incredible speed one fateful day.  With his dream suddenly within reach, Theo aka Turbo embarks on a journey after being transported to a rundown strip mall where visitors bet on races featuring snails and meets a ragtag of street-smart snails headed by Whiplash (Samuel L. Jackson), Smoove Move (Snoop Dogg), Burn (Maya Rudolph) and Skidmark (Ben Schwartz).  


Based on his own original concept, filmmaker David Soren mentioned in an interview with Susan Wloszczyna of USATODAY.Com that “Turbo” was hatched by combining the fascination of his son with race cars and an ongoing infestation of snails on their suburban lawn.  “It came purely out of wanting to do an underdog story and combining elements in my life, taking one of the slowest creatures on earth and having him dream of mind-melting speed.


"Ryan Reynolds' infectious enthusiasm and humor will bring life to the lead role of Turbo and set the tone for this amazing roster of all-star voice talent," said DreamWorks Animation Chief Creative Officer Bill Damaschke. "This high-octane journey will take audiences on the race of their lives and completely re-define the traditional notion of moving at a snail's pace!"

“A Good Day to Die Hard” Brings the Action Genre to the Extreme

“A Good Day to Die Hard” Brings the Action Genre to the Extreme

25 years since John McClane was introduced in “Die Hard” movies that exploded into theaters, launching a new cinematic hero and changing the paradigm of action movies. McClane is identifiable and relatable. An ordinary man forced by circumstances to attempt an extraordinary task.  That is what separates him from the comic book heroes of most action movies, and has made McClane one of the most popular characters in film history.

Bruce Willis reprises his iconic role as police detective John McClane in “A Good Day to Die Hard” directed by John Moore set against the backdrop of deadly corruption and political vendetta in Russia.  McClane arrives in Moscow to track down his estranged son, Jack, (Jai Courtney), and is stunned to discover he’s working undercover to protect a government whistleblower, Komarov. With their own necks on the line, the McClanes are forced to overcome their differences in order to get Komarov to safety and thwart a potentially disastrous crime in the most desolate place on Earth - Chernobyl.


Willis is McClane, and he embraced the opportunity to pay another visit to the beloved character that has a habit of finding himself in the wrong place at the right time.  Does trouble find John McClane or does John McClane seek it out?  “Well, he’s certainly attracted to trouble,” says the actor, “but yes, trouble also seems determined to find him.”

I find it an interesting exercise to reach for the bar we set with the series, and I enjoy checking in with McClane at different stages in his life,” Willis continues. “In this story, he’s at a point where men tend to reflect on their past. For McClane, it’s the estranged relationship with his son. They haven’t spoken in some time, and the first news he’s received of him is about his arrest in Moscow.

Moore embraced the opportunity of helming a new Die Hard picture and working with Willis.  “Bruce is the most zealous guardian at the gate of what’s right for John McClane, and what’s right for Die Hard, says the director. Nobody knows the character and the franchise better than Bruce.”

As both head coach and referee of the new installment of this “Super Bowl” franchise, director John Moore was committed to taking the series to the next level.  His unique visual style and background in action-oriented movies such as Behind Enemy Lines and Max Payne convinced Fox executives and producers he could move the ball downfield.

 The work was painstaking but never dull: “It’s not unusual for us to spend 12 hours doing a shot that will be three seconds on screen, but there’s no other way,” Moore explains. “This is analog filmmaking. We are doing as much as possible in camera and only using VFX to enhance or paint in backgrounds.”

In creating the movie’s visual style, Moore wanted the camera work to be almost entirely handheld, using three cameras and long lenses to capture tight close-ups. The improvised camera movements place the audience inside the action, as if they’re part of the story, instead of detached observers viewing from a distance.

Moore says, “McClane is in a strange world, with little or no initial control over his environment. He’s unable to anticipate things as he normally might. He’s caught off guard, and we want the camera to mimic that surprise and confusion.”

We have a couple of the best stuntmen in the world on this show, and the whole team is top notch,” says stunt coordinator Steve Davison. “The Die Hard shows are sort of the Super Bowl of action movies, and every stuntman in the business wants to be in the game.”


“A Good Day to Die Hard” opens February 13 in theaters nationwide from 20th Century Fox to be distributed by Warner Bros.

Jamie Chung Talks About ‘The Man with the Iron Fists’

Jamie Chung Talks About ‘The Man with the Iron Fists’

The Hangover Part II’s Jamie Chung plays Lady Silk in “The Man With Iron Fists,” a martial arts movie from Universal Pictures.

Producer Marc Abraham explains Lady Silk’s role in the action-adventure: “To buy the freedom of his beloved prostitute, the Blacksmith does what he has to do and builds weapons for bad guys. He’s not proud of it, but he’s justified it. In the end, he decides to free himself from all this and to do the right thing: to destroy those weapons and the people who have forced him to make them, and to hopefully free the woman he loves. Ultimately, Jamie’s character is in love with him, but not so much that she would sacrifice her freedom. She wants wealth, power and to get out. She’s used him to some degree, but he’s touched her.”

What did you think of the script when you first read it?

To be honest, when I first read the script, I didn’t quite get it. Then I met with RZA and I was totally sold on it once I saw his vision.

What was it about RZA that convinced you to be in The Man With Iron Fists”?

His enthusiasm. This is something he has wanted to do for his entire life. When he finally got the chance to do it, he partnered up with all of his buddies. You couldn’t say no to something like this.

Who is Lady Silk?

She is kind of the driving force for RZA’s character, the Blacksmith, because he needs a reason to make all these weapons and save all this money. In a way, she gets the torch passed on from Madame Blossom, Lucy Liu’s character, and is the next one inline as part of Madame Blossom’s sort of female society, known as the Black Widows.

What do you like about your character?

I like that she is seductive, but at the same time very selective. She is only with the Blacksmith.

Were you a fan of martial arts movies before getting involved in “The Man With Iron Fists”?

I grew up watching films like Bruce Lee’s Enter the Dragon. To be honest, I wasn’t very familiar with many of the vintage kung fu movies that RZA put me up to, but I’m glad he did!

What do you believe RZA’s vision has added to the martial arts genre?

We have recently seen beautiful ballet-style martial arts films like Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon but they are nothing like this movie. “The Man With Iron Fists” has resurrected a new style of cinema.

Quentin Tarantino has been involved in this project. How would you compare “The Man With Iron Fists” to his previous work?

People can compare it to Quentin’s previous work, but “The Man With Iron Fists” is kind of its own thing. Everything about this movie is just so cool!

And what can you say of Eli Roth’s role as a screenwriter and a producer?

Eli is lovely. He is quite the character and was really important to have on set. I believe Eli, being an experienced director, was able to help RZA stay on track. He knew what shots he needed and how to handle the logistics.

Speaking of the logistics, were you impressed with the sets in China?

They were beautiful, representing old-school China. For instance, the set decorators took an abandoned building and turned it into Madame Blossom’s House of Ladies.

So, what was the experience of being in Shanghai like?

Shanghai is an amazing port city and it’s quite eclectic. Everyone speaks English and there are lots of cultures. We stayed in a little town west of Shanghai where no one spoke English, so we spent a lot of time together, even though we tried to sneak into the city whenever we could.

Hong Kong director and legend Corey Yuen designed the fight sequences. How was it to work with Corey?

I have done stunt work before. There were so many professional fighters on this movie so it was easy to catch on. I was really impressed with Lucy Liu because she barely had any time to rehearse her stunts and she killed it!

What can you say about Lucy Liu?

She is so beautiful, talented and such a true artist. I aspire to be like her.

And how was Russell Crowe?

I barely got to work with him, but that was perfect because his character is quite intimidating, though very charming.

RZA wrote, shot and starred in “The Man With Iron Fists” as the Blacksmith. Do you think that was a lot to tackle on his directorial debut?

You’re talking about a gentleman. RZA is absolutely lovely! And it’s interesting because he is so confident and outgoing on screen, but then very Zen and shy in real life. He has so much going on in his head that you have to trust him because there is a reason for everything he does.

What was the energy like on set then?

Yes, there was a lot of joking around. Every day was an adventure!

And what did you think of the film when you saw it finished?

I thought, “RZA, if I ever questioned you, please forgive me because this is everything thing you said it would be and cooler!”

Did you enjoy the music?

I think it’s fantastic! RZA has some incredible people collaborating in the soundtrack. He has worked with so many great artists in the past, that to finally ask for that favor back for his own film was pretty amazing.

What have you taken back from this whole experience?

I am just in awe with how well it all came together!


“The Man With The Iron Fists” is released and distributed by United International Pictures through Solar Entertainment Corp. Showing nationwide on January 30.

Nicholas Hoult on His Movie 'Jack: The Giant Slayer': Impressive!"

Nicholas Hoult on His Movie 'Jack: The Giant Slayer': Impressive!"

Nicholas Hoult is promoting his “zombie romance” film called “Warm Bodies” and the star was asked about all of his other projects.

In an interview posted by Collider on Jan. 22, the “X-Men: First Class” star discusses his zombie role and the back story before moving to his next film “Jack the Giant Slayer,” which the actor says he’s seen a few bits.

I’ve seen a few clips from it. It looks pretty impressive,” Hoult says before adding that the Giants have unique personalities and their ‘world” is “pretty spectacular.”

“Jack” is one of several “big budget films” for Hoult who then comments on “Mad Max: Fury Road” which wrapped for Hoult, director George Miller and his character Nux.

It was fantastic. I mean, crazy. (seen nothing like it) the landscape, the vehicles, the stunts. George Miller is a fantastic director. I think it’s going to be a really cool film.” Lastly, Hoult will be returning for the “First Class” sequel titled “X-Men: Days of Future Past” with “Jack the Giant Slayer” director Bryan Singer, who will be returning to the X-Men franchise.

How Hoult and Beast figure into the story haven’t been revealed.

No, not yet. There’s nearly a finished script and it’s apparently looking very good and I’m looking forward to it.

In “Jack the Giant Slayer,” an ancient war is reignited when a young farmhand unwittingly opens a gateway between our world and a fearsome race of giants. Unleashed on the Earth for the first time in centuries, the giants strive to reclaim the land they once lost, forcing the young man, Jack (Hoult), into the battle of his life to stop them. Fighting for a kingdom and its people, and the love of a brave princess, he comes face to face with the unstoppable warriors he thought only existed in legend… and gets the chance to become a legend himself.

The film also stars Eleanor Tomlinson as Princess Isabelle; Stanley Tucci as the deceitful Lord Roderick; Ian McShane as the besieged King Brahmwell; Bill Nighy as the giants’ leader, General Fallon; and Ewan McGregor as palace guard Elmont.

A New Line Cinema presentation, in association with Legendary Pictures, “Jack the Giant Slayer” opens in the Philippines on February 28, 2013 and will be distributed by Warner Bros. Pictures, a Warner Bros. Entertainment Company.
