Lovi Poe Charms Viewers Anew in "Akin Pa Rin Ang Bukas" 

It’s been quite a while since Lovi Poe last graced the coveted halls of primetime television, but viewers and her millions of fans won’t have to wait any longer as the Kapuso Network’s Premier Drama Actress makes a grand come-back in GMA Telebabad next week.

Fresh from the production of her widely talked-about docu-series “Titser” which currently airs on GMA News TV and is receiving very positive reviews, Lovi is starring in the upcoming GMA primetime series “Akin Pa Rin Ang Bukas,” which is slated to replace “Mundo Mo’y Akin” beginning Monday, September 9.

The multi-awarded actress, who won not one but two Best Supporting Actress awards this year for the movie “Thy Womb” and Best Actress Award at the 2010 Golden Screen Awards and at the 2010 Cinemalaya Independent Film Festival for the movie “Mayohan,” is joined by some of the country’s most respected and talented artists namely Cesar Montano, Rocco Nacino, Solenn Heussaff, Charee Pineda, Gary Estrada, Ms. Liza Lorena and the Original Queen of Philippine Movies, Ms. Gloria Romero.

Armed with a transfixing story and a stellar cast, “Akin Pa Rin Ang Bukas” is primed to dominate the airwaves and captivate the hearts of Filipino viewers.

In the series, the 2010 FAMAS Best Actress (Sagrada Familia) and 2012 Best Supporting Actress (Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow - PMPC Star Awards and FAP Luna Awards) portrays the character of Lovelia who, after having been deceived by the people she loved, seeks to reclaim what’s rightfully hers. She learns to take matters into her own hands and seeks revenge against Jerry (Rocco Nacino), the man whom she loved and Agatha (Charee Pineda), the woman who stole all her possessions including her lover’s heart. 

Somewhere along the way, Lovelia meets Conrad (Cesar Montano) who helps her exact vengeance against Jerry and Agatha.  With a new man in her life, will Lovelia’s feelings for Jerry eventually fade away? Will anger eat up what’s left of her love for Jerry? Will she attain justice in the end? 

Also starring in the series are Ina Feleo, Glenda Garcia, Tiya Pusit, Steven Silva, Kier Legaspi, Ruru Madrid and Freddie Webb.

Helmed by Ms. Laurice Guillen in her first directorial project in GMA (for a primetime series), “Akin Pa Rin Ang Bukas” will surely offer kapuso viewers another extraordinary primetime viewing experience. 

Don’t miss the pilot airing of “Akin Pa Rin Ang Bukas” on Monday, September 9, after Anna Karenina on GMA Telebabad. 

Harrison Ford versus Gary Oldman in “Paranoia”

Harrison Ford versus Gary Oldman in “Paranoia”

To take on the roles of battling billionnaire kingpins in Relativity Media's new thriller “Paranoia”, the filmmakers knew they would need two actors capable of embodying brilliant, eccentric, hugely ambitious men whose unbridled thirst for power has made them capable of menace and even murder. They found that in the explosive pairing of Academy Award® nominated actors Gary Oldman and Harrison Ford.

The two first worked together on the hit thriller “Air Force One,” with Ford playing the U.S. President and Oldman the relentless Russian terrorist who hijacks his plane. In “Paranoia,” however, they would both be challenged by characters unlike any they have taken on in their diverse careers – men who once wanted to change the world with life-altering technology but have fallen into an obsessive, cat-and-mouse game to one-up each other.

It was like a dream to put these two back together again,” muses producer Alexandra Milchan. “Their characters couldn’t be more different and yet Harrison and Gary are alike in many ways. They are both equally funny, charming, extremely smart and generous. They both really loved the characters they were playing, even though they are villains, and they both understood the source of their greed and their desire to play God with the universe around them to a certain degree.”

Harrison walks, talks, and feels like integrity personified – the very ideal of an upstanding American leader like his character, Jock Goddard – which makes his turn to the dark side in `Paranoia' so compelling,” notes producer William Johnson. “It was equal parts pleasure and terror to watch him seduce and destroy.”

Oldman was drawn right away to the screenplay. “It plays like a thriller, but it’s got a twist that I didn’t see coming,” Oldman notes. More than that, Oldman quickly developed his own personal take on his character, Nicolas Wyatt, as one of the self-made industrialists of the digital era. “I play Nick as a guy who is working-class, self-taught, and a former whiz kid who has a real flair for technology,” he explains. “The character was originally an American but I presented to Robert a trans-Atlantic ex-pat who has found success here. It adds an interesting dynamic to things.

Wyatt has indeed found success in America, the kind of head-spinning success only the very elite will ever taste, which was a lot of fun for Oldman to jump into. “I said to Robert at one point, ‘you’ve fulfilled all my dreams of driving a Bentley, wearing wonderful suits and stepping out of my own private helicopter,’” Oldman muses.

Oldman was especially thrilled to create the explosive collision between Wyatt and Goddard with Harrison Ford – and he says that Ford took him by surprise. “I was really impressed,” he says. “It’s kind of a different character for him and he did some really fine work.”

Says Ford in turn of Oldman: “I’ve always enjoyed watching Gary no matter what he is doing. Wyatt is a fascinating, bitter, angry character, who believes my character, Goddard, would never be the success he is without him. Working with him made the whole thing great fun.

Ford was drawn not only to reuniting with Oldman but to the rich themes of “Paranoia.” “I see it as a cautionary tale of a young man led by blind ambition into a trap,” he says.

The filmmakers gave Goddard and Wyatt contrasting, individual styles, right down to their cars. But the real sparks emerged from whenever Oldman and Ford were on set together. “What was interesting to me is that both these great actors are quite unassuming and gentle when you meet them,” observes Luketic. “But as soon as the word action is called they turned into these incredible forces.”

Opening across the Philippines on October 2, “Paranoia” is distributed by Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures International through Columbia Pictures.

“The Conjuring” Director James Wan Returns with “Insidious: Chapter 2”

“The Conjuring” Director James Wan Returns with “Insidious: Chapter 2”

Australian director James Wan is one of the most intelligent and creative filmmakers working today. He recently conqured global box-office with the blockbuster supernatural thriller “The Conjuring” which is based on the story of husband-and-wife psychic investigators who come across a horrific case involving the hauntings of a Rhode Island farmhouse.

Previously, Wan co-created the “Saw” franchise, the most successful horror-film series of all time.

Now, the newly crowned master of horror brings to the screen the terrifying thriller “Insidious: Chapter 2,” the sequel to the disturbing and original 2011 psychological horror thriller “Insidious.”

In “Chapter 2,” a haunted family struggles to uncover a terrifying secret that has left them dangerously connected to the spirit world. The sequel reteams the cast of the first film, including Patrick Wilson, Rose Byrne, Barbara Hershey, Lin Shaye and Ty Simpkins.

We’re super excited at the chance to continue telling the story we started in the first film,” says Wan. “I love the characters we created in the first film, and it’s great to come back to work with the same cast and crew. It’s like coming home to a family. But it’s also very scary because the success of the first film took us all by surprise.”

The first film had a single vision - James and screenwriter Leigh Whannell’s - pushing it forward without any kind of interference or creative compromises,” producer Jason Blum says. “I believe that’s one reason the film did so well, so we didn’t want James or Leigh to make any creative compromises with the sequel either.”

The filmmaking duo, whose creative partnership goes back to their college days in Melbourne, Australia, say their inspiration has always come from trading ghost stories with one another. Even during the filming process, they constantly bounce around ideas and concepts that they then incorporate into the film.

If you have enough similarities, or if the same stories excite you, then it’s really easy to work together,” says Whannell. “James and I are pretty in sync that way, especially when it comes to horror.”

Or as Wan puts it: “We’ve always tried to scare the crap out of each other. And then one day we said, ‘We should put this in a movie!’ And that’s literally what we did for `Insidious.' We took all the scares, all the great ghost stories we’d heard, and put them in the film.”

The film hit a nerve, connecting with audiences domestically and abroad.

The filmmaking duo sees “Insidious: Chapter 2” as more of a psychological thriller than a horror film. While “Insidious” was infused with haunted-house-film archetypes, Wan says “Chapter 2” focuses less on gore and CGI effects than on tapping into audiences’ most basic childhood fears.

I would describe it as a domestic thriller with a supernatural edge to it,” Wan says. “The ghouls are coming back, but this film isn’t about that as much. I feel like I’ve already established the characters, so now I can get into them without being too gimmicky, while still keeping those elements that people love. The first one was a lot more straightforward, which is great for a first movie, but in a sequel you want to expand on the mythology. You want to show people more of the world you’ve created, and that’s what we did with Chapter 2.

Opening across the Philippines on September 18, “Insidious: Chapter 2” is distributed by Columbia Pictures, local office of Sony Pictures Releasing International. Visit to see the latest trailers, get free downloads and play free movie games.
