Zach Galifianakis Quits Drinking, The Reasons Revealed

Zach Galifianakis Quits Drinking, The Reasons Revealed

In his recent guesting on Conan O'Brien show, Zach Galifianakis said he decided to quit drinking after a wild night in which he stood face-to-face with two giant men who delivered swift justice to the actor for dinging up their car.

The "The Hangover" star said that he was crossing the street after a night of some heavy whiskey drinking when he had a lapse in judgement and clocked the hood of a Jaguar.

Unfortunately for Zach, the men inside the car were “two 6-foot-6 guys - 12-by-12.” They were angry enough to exit the car and confront the actor and comedian, spitting in his face.

“I don’t know if you’ve ever been spit in your face, non-sexually…” Galifianakis joked to Conan.

There could be other factors behind Zach Galifianakis’ decision to quit drinking. Last August the actor settled down, marrying girlfriend Quinn Lundberg.

The two wed in a quiet ceremony that included some famous guests, including The Hangover co-stars Bradley Cooper and Ed Helms.

Galifianakis had been quietly Lundberg for at least two years before the wedding. The couple remained underneath the radar, getting engaged in June 2012 with little fanfare. While Galifianakis is a boisterous character in his movies, he’s said to live a simpler life away from the big screen, spending much time in his home state of North Carolina.

Zach Galifianakis also quits drinking just as the finale to his movie trilogy about heavy drinking is about to be released. The Hangover 3, the final part of a saga about a group of hard-drinking and forgetful friends, is set for release May 24. -

Watch the music video below:

May may naririnig akong bagong awitin
At may may naririnig akong bagong sigaw, eh ikaw?
Hindi mo ba namamalayan?
Wala Ka bang nararamdaman?
Ika ng hangin na humahalik sa atin

Panahon na naman ng pag-ibig
Panahon na naman ahhh
Panahon na naman ng pag-ibig
Gumising ka tara na

Masdan maigi ang mga mata ng bawat tao
Nakasilip ang isang bagong saya
At pag-ibig na dakila matagal nang nawala
Kamusta Ka? Nariyan ka lang pala
Hindi mo ba namamalayan?
Wala Ka bang nararamdaman?
Ika ng hangin na humahalik sa atin

Panahon na naman ng pag-ibig
Panahon na naman ahhh
Panahon na naman ng pag-ibig
Gumising ka tara na

Uso pa ba ang harana?
Marahil ikaw ay nagtataka
Sino ba 'to, mukhang gago
Nagkandarapa sa pagkanta
At nagsisintunado sa kaba

Meron pang dalang mga rosas
Suot nama'y maong na kupas
At nariyan pa ang barkada
Nakaporma nakabarong
Sa awiting daig pa ang minus one at sing along

Puno ang langit ng bituin
At kay lamig pa ng hangin
Sa 'yong tingin ako'y nababaliw, giliw
At sa awitin kong ito, sana'y maibigan mo
Ibubuhos ko ang buong puso ko
Sa isang munting harana

Tara na na na na na na na na na na na na na na na
Tara na na na na na na na na na na na na na na na
Sa isang munting harana na na na na na
Sa isang munting harana na na na na na

TV5 Declines Willie Revillame's P90-Million a Month Talent Fee Demand; Willie Revillame Resigns from TV5?

TV5 Declines Willie Revillame's P90-Million a Month Talent Fee Demand; Willie Revillame Resigns from TV5?

In a text message sent to PEP by Wowowillie's Business Unit Head Jay Montelibano, he strongly denied a report that TV5 Executives decided not to renew the contract of Willie Revillame after he demanded a P90-million a month talent fee despite the show's poor ratings.

The memo, as the report further, was given to Revillame on Thursday night during a closed-door meeting prompting the producer-host to file a resignation.

Montelibano, in his text, said:

I don’t think there’s any truth to that coz Kuya Willie and I were together last night at Wil’s Events Place, hence no such meeting took place.

“I also have no idea where the 90M/mo is coming from.

"And besides, new TV5 president Noel Lorenzana will just assume his role starting June 1 so i guess no one would be in authority yet to sit down and nego with us re renewal."

Andrea Brillantes Launches as Rising Teleserye Princess in 'Annaliza'

Andrea Brillantes Launches as Rising Teleserye Princess in 'Annaliza'

ABS-CBN premieres its newest and heartwarming primetime family drama Annaliza, topbilled by rising teleserye princess Andrea Brillantes with an ensemble of today’s most respected young actors, beginning on May 27 (Monday) before TV Patrol.

The classic 80s soap opera returns to television and is set to launch the career of child actress Andrea, who has proven her acting prowess by playing remarkable roles as Princess in E-Boy, young Jessy Mendiola in Sabel and Paraiso, young Kim Chiu in Ina Kapatid Anak, and young Andi Eigenmann in Kahit Puso’y Masugatan.

Annaliza also marks blockbuster actor Zanjoe Marudo’s first ever portrayal as a father in the small screen and serves as the comeback soap for 90s teen superstars Patrick Garcia and Carlo Aquino, whose acting skills were again noticed by the public after their respective cameo appearances in Apoy sa Dagat and Dugong Buhay.

Follow the story of Annaliza, a young girl with a very kind heart who will be raised by a foster father Guido (Zanjoe).

When she is still a baby, Annaliza will be stolen from her biological and wealthy parents - the restopreneurs Lazaro (Patrick) and Isabel (Denise Laurel). It is Stella (Kaye Abad), Lazaro’s avenging ex-lover, who has the baby stolen with the help of her suitor Makoy (Carlo).

Afraid of being caught red-handed, Makoy leaves the child to his best friend Guido, a fishport worker. Despite his average and simple life, Guido wholeheartedly accepts Annaliza and raises her as his own daughter.

Annaliza begins to endure challenges and hardships in her young life when Guido eventually marries Stella and leaves for Saudi in hopes of giving them a better life. But fate rewards Annaliza’s innate goodness by bringing her closer to Isabel and Lazaro, not knowing they are her true parents.

How will Annaliza discover her true identity? How will she suffer in the hands of Stella? In the end, who will she choose? Her true parents who want to make up for the lost time or the man who raised her and treated her as his own?

Also included in the cast are Khalil Ramos, Sue Ramirez, Kiko Estrada, Shy Carlos, Kyline Alcantara, Jillian Aguila, and Reign Tolentino.

Annaliza is under the direction of Theodore Boborol and Cathy Camarillo and under the supervision of award-winning director and new ABS-CBN business unit head Ruel S. Bayani.

Angry Birds The Movie Soon in Theaters Worldwide

Angry Birds The Movie Soon in Theaters Worldwide

Sony Pictures Entertainment has won the exclusive worldwide distribution rights to the eagerly anticipated Angry Birds animated film, making it one of the most high-profile deals of the year. The 3D film is being developed, produced, and financed by Rovio Entertainment and will be released worldwide by Sony Pictures on July 1, 2016. Several major studios pursued the global film rights in recent weeks, with Sony Pictures Entertainment emerging as the winner.

Michael Lynton, Chairman & CEO of Sony Pictures Entertainment, Amy Pascal, Co-chairman of Sony Pictures Entertainment, and Mikael Hed, CEO of Rovio Entertainment jointly announced their partnership today. John Cohen and David Maisel – producer of Despicable Me and executive producer of Iron Man, respectively – are both on board for the new Angry Birds feature film. Cohen will serve as producer and Maisel is executive producer.

Commenting on the announcement, Mikael Hed said, “Sony impressed us with their great attitude, determination, and professionalism. They convinced us that we have found the right partners and team to help us market and distribute our first motion picture. Michael, Amy, Jeff Blake, Sony's marketing and distribution head, and their teams will be the best possible collaborators as we get set to take our franchise to the next level.

Lynton and Pascal said, “Every studio in town would love to add Angry Birds to their slate. There are few titles out there that bring this kind of excitement, brand awareness and built-in audience to the table. We’re thrilled to be distributing this film and we hope this is just the beginning of what will be a long relationship with Rovio as we look for ways to work on future projects together.

David Maisel and John Cohen said, “We are very excited to join with Sony Pictures in presenting this movie to the world in 2016 and we will have many more announcements as we begin production in the coming months.

Angry Birds is one of the world’s biggest entertainment franchises, starting in 2009 with the original mobile game that remains the number one paid app of all time. Angry Birds has expanded rapidly into entertainment, publishing, and licensing to become a beloved international brand.

Angry Birds has been praised for its great value and simple, casual gameplay. Players use a slingshot to launch birds at green pigs in an attempt to get their eggs back, with the game setting the model for what is possible in terms of game development and commercial success. To date, the Angry Birds and Bad Piggies games have been downloaded more than 1.7 billion times across platforms and versions.

The upcoming movie marks Rovio Entertainment’s first foray into feature films, although fans have already been introduced to the Angry Birds world with the weekly Angry Birds Toons animated series. Rovio launched the series in March through its Angry Birds apps as well as on select video-on-demand channel providers, Smart TVs, connected devices, and on select TV networks around the world. Paving the way for a full-length feature film, Angry Birds Toons has been a massive success for Rovio clocking in over 150 million views from the Angry Birds apps alone within the first six weeks.

While known for distributing world renowned motion picture franchises such as Spider-Man, Sony Pictures has been building a strong reputation in contemporary animation through its house production unit, Sony Pictures Animation, and hit films including Hotel Transylvania, The Smurfs, Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs, Surf’s Up, Open Season, and Aardman’s Arthur Christmas and The Pirates! Band of Misfits.

Beyonce Voices Queen Tara in “Epic” (3D)

Beyonce Voices Queen Tara in “Epic” (3D)

From the creators of the "Ice Age" and "Rio" series, "Epic" follows a teenager MK (voiced by Amanda Seyfried) who is transported into a secret forest world then embroiled in a battle between good and evil and has to protect a special flower pod to save the forest where Queen Tara (Beyonce) reigns protected by the Leafmen.

“Epic’s” world, which unites the familiar and the fantastic, is a forest unlike any we’ve seen before: tiny seeds look like boulders; rocks are the size of spiky mountains; flowers are gigantic and complex; and a butterfly is a nothing short of a flying tapestry.
In this world, Wedge interweaves spectacular battle scenes with intimate and emotional character interactions, and seasons the tale with humor, fun and romance. While the film’s visual wonders breaks new ground in animated spectacle, realism, action and adventure, it is “Epic’s” characters and the actors who portray themthat take center stage.

Beyonce loved voicing Queen Tara in the new children's movie "Epic" — at least once she stopped crying.  Queen B has gone from pop royalty to screen royalty, becoming the forest queen in an animated movie that she hopes her 15-month-old daughter Blue Ivy will be proud of one day.

The film was her first work since giving birth and she says her hormones were raging. "I literally had tears when I played the voice," Beyonce told The Associated Press in an interview between concerts in London. "There was a scene where Queen Tara picks out her pod and I just imagined seeing my child."

This role in "Epic" is not the superstar's only brush with royalty of late. Her recent concert in London on her "Mrs. Carter Show" world tour, the singer inadvertently singled out Princess Eugenie in the crowd to sing with her. The 23-year-old is sixth in line for the British throne. Beyonce giggled as she revealed that she had no idea who Eugenie was.

"'I didn't know, and I still don't know. Someone told me and I don't know what's going on, but I hope they had a great time and I hope I didn't insult anyone, making them sing into the mic," Beyonce said. "But you know royalty likes to have fun and have a good entertaining night."

"I'm an artist and I love being able to express myself and I'm not one-dimensional," she said. "I have different feelings every day and now that I've done movies I feel like I can try and recreate these characters on the stage."

Beautiful, agile and strong, Tara isn’t just the Leafmen’s Queen; she’s the life force of the forest, which she presides over with respect, compassion and humor.  Her unique connection with nature gives her additional and powerful allies.  And when all hope seems lost, she summons help from the most surprising of places.

Tara is nothing less than the forest itself. She has a powerful connection with her land: flowers bloom and bend toward her, and leaves bow to Tara.  “Tara is the heart of the forest, personified, and she’s beloved by her people, called the Jinn,” says Beyoncé.

Beyoncé agrees with Farrell that the film lives up to its grand title. “EPIC is about a massive battle between good and evil, set against a huge landscape you’ve never before experienced in a film,” she points out.  “Everything in EPIC is big – the action, stakes, characters – but at the same time they’re all really relatable.”

Beyoncé found much to admire in Tara, beyond the character’s elegance, powers and royal position.   “What I like most about Tara is that she sets a great example for the people she protects, and Tara is a role model for the younger characters.”

“Epic” (3D) opens May 24 in theaters nationwide from 20th Century Fox to be distributed by Warner Bros.

“The Hangover III” Returns to Las Vegas

“The Hangover III” Returns to Las Vegas

From Warner Bros. Pictures and Legendary Pictures comes “The Hangover Part III,” the third and final film in director Todd Phillips’ record-shattering comedy trilogy.

“The Hangover Part III” is the epic conclusion to an incomparable odyssey of mayhem and bad decisions, in which the guys must finish what they started by going back to where it all began: Las Vegas.

One way or another…it all ends here.

“The Hangover Part III” reunites stars Bradley Cooper, Ed Helms, Zach Galifianakis and Justin Bartha as Phil, Stu, Alan and Doug. Also returning to the cast are Ken Jeong as Leslie Chow; Heather Graham as Stu’s first wife, Jade; and Jeffrey Tambor as Alan’s father, Sid. Joining the ensemble for the first time is John Goodman, starring as the guys’ new nightmare, Marshall.

It’s been two years. Phil (Cooper), Stu (Helms) and Doug (Bartha) are happily living uneventful lives at home. Tattoos have been lasered off, files purged. The last they heard from disaster-magnet Leslie Chow (Jeong), he’d been tossed into a Thai prison and, with him out of the way, the guys have very nearly recovered from their nights prowling the seamy side of Las Vegas in a roofie’d haze, and being kidnapped, shot at, and chased by drug-dealing mobsters in Bangkok.

The only member of the Wolfpack who’s not content is Alan (Galifianakis). Still lacking a sense of purpose, the group’s black sheep has ditched his meds and given into his natural impulses in a big way - which, for Alan, means no boundaries, no filters and no judgment - until a personal crisis forces him to finally seek the help he needs.

And who better than his three best friends to make sure he takes the first step.

This time, there’s no bachelor party. No wedding. What could possibly go wrong? But when the Wolfpack hits the road, all bets are off.

In 2009, writer/director Todd Phillips threw a bachelor party the likes of which had never been seen before, and invited the whole world to bond with a group of guys now universally known as the Wolfpack. In 2011, he raised the stakes to show us how far they could be pushed without completely losing it.

By asking - and then answering - the diabolically simple question, What could go wrong?, both “The Hangover” and “The Hangover Part II” not only shattered boundaries and box office records, entertaining millions around the globe, but made an indelible mark on pop culture. Mr. Chow’s deranged catch phrases still ring from the most unlikely mouths, and fans from Baltimore to Bosnia sidle up daily to the front desk at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas to crack themselves up by requesting “the Hangover suite” or quoting Alan’s clueless query, “Is this the real Caesar’s palace?”

Now, “We’re going for a truly epic finish,” says Phillips, as the story takes Phil, Stu, Alan, Doug, and their nemesis Chow south of the border and then back to the original scene of the crime for the saga’s fitting conclusion: Las Vegas, where things first went very, very wrong.

What they thought happened in Vegas was only the half of it, which they are about to discover in ways that the filmmakers believe should surprise audiences as much as it surprises the guys. “There’s a lot of action and comedy, a heist, a road trip, and an element of mystery, too, as we touch on certain things that weren’t explored before but were always part of the undercurrent of the two previous films,” Phillips continues. “It brings everything together and wraps it up with an ending that follows its own logic.”

Screenwriter Craig Mazin, who first collaborated with Phillips on the script for “The Hangover Part II,” recounts how they reached back to the two prior outings to prime that logic. “We uncovered a chain of unfinished business that arcs through all three movies for a final story that doesn’t just end on its own, but ends all three. Something happened in the beginning, although few caught its significance, and that thing is going to come back to haunt the guys and start them down a path of what will be, in many ways, their most difficult and challenging journey of all.”

Designed more as a quest than the forensic investigations that went before, “The Hangover Part III” shakes up the morning-after structure of its predecessors while still delivering plenty of laugh-out-loud and what-the-hell moments to keep moviegoers on the edge of their seats.

Rather than memory loss, the final chapter hinges on clarity, and things coming into full focus. It’s not about a specific hangover this time but harkens back to the original - that mother-of-all hangovers, triggered by Alan, which set all of this into motion six years ago in ways they couldn’t imagine.

“Part III” does not shy away from the dark side, either, the better to give its humor a sharper edge, Phillips feels. “With us it always starts with darkness, because that heightens the comedy. Plus, it just gets more interesting and more real as we bring them into darker places and amp up the tension. It’s essentially a fish-out-of-water story for these guys who don’t belong in the situation they’ve been thrown into, so the fun is in watching them struggle and trip their way through it.”

A presentation of Warner Bros. Pictures, in association with Legendary Pictures, “The Hangover Part III" opens in Philippine theaters on May 29, 2013.
