Jovi Gatdula Expresses True Love for Freddie Aguilar; Narrates How Their Love Story Started

Jovi Gatdula Expresses True Love for Freddie Aguilar; Narrates How Their Love Story Started


Sixteen year-old Jovi Gatdula finally speaks of her controversial relationship with 60-year-old music legend Freddie Aguilar.

"Mahal ko siya. Wala na akong pakialam kung anong nakaraan niya, kung ano siya. Basta love ko siya, iyon 'yon." Gatdula, fondly referred to as "babe" by her boyfriend Aguilar, said.

Speaking exclusively with ABS-CBN News' Mario Dumaual, Aguilar's girlfriend of five months recalled how they first met during an election campaign concert in Oriental Mindoro.

The "Anak" hitmaker, who was beside "babe" during the interview, narrated how she stood out from her group of female friends when he first saw her. Aguilar said he had wanted to approach "babe" as soon as his part in the concert ended, but had to accommodate a politician's wife. "Hindi ko naman maiwan," he said.

As he'd hoped, "babe" and his friends approached him to have a photo taken - she said she was a fan - which became an opportunity for Aguilar to give her his calling card.

Asked if she felt "love at first sight" upon meeting Aguilar, "babe" said, "Actually noong una, hindi eh. Akala ko joke lang eh. Kasi nga, 'diba, celebrity siya eh. Ta's ako simpleng tao lang ako do'n. Sabi ko, 'Joke ba 'to?'"

It would take days before "babe" started to contact Aguilar. He said she somehow lost his calling card for a while, only to find it still in her shorts' pocket. At the time, "babe" said she had no compelling reason to reach out to the music veteran.

"Bored lang ako. Naka-unli naman ako no'n, eh," she said.

"Tapos nag-text ako sa kanya, tapos 'yung mga text niya... sakay-sakay din lang. Tapos nung nakipagkita ako sa kanya sa Maynila, nag-stay ako sa bahay niya. Mga 12 days ako do'n," she said.

Upon returning home in Oriental Mindoro from this 12-day "vacation" she somehow couldn't stop thinking about Aguilar.

"Pag-uwi ko sa'min, do'n ko naramdaman na love ko na pala 'yon. Akala ko joke lang. Pagdating ko sa'min, hindi ako makatulog, laging iniisip ko siya," she said.

This concerned her mother. "Babe" immediately wanted to return "home" with Aguilar, but this, of course, was a matter for negotiation with her mom.

"Tapos, ito na, sabi ko sa nanay ko, 'Ma, uwi na ako sa amin.' Sabi ng nanay ko, 'Ito ang bahay mo, saan ka uuwi?' Sabi ko, 'Kay Freddie. Hindi ko alam, ma, basta mahal ko na siya eh.'

"Tapos sabi ng nanay ko, 'Anak, mahirap 'yan, kasi, 'diba, celebrity 'yan. Maraming babae 'yan.' Sabi ko, 'Ma, okay lang 'yon, basta mahal ko siya.' Tapos ayon, pinayagan niya ako dumating doon sa'min, sa bahay nila. Sabi ko, 'Ito na, love na 'to eh,'" she said.

Overtime, the two would develop a close relationship as friends, until Aguilar deemed it time to ask "babe" to become officially his girlfriend. Laughing, the veteran singer candidly shared he popped the question through text.

"Hindi siya sumasagot. Sabi ko, 'Ayaw siguro.' So tinext back ko siya, 'Okay lang naman kung ayaw mo. 'Di bale nalang.' Tapos nag-text siya sa'kin, 'Hindi, busy lang kasi ako,'" he said.

Although they had been spending time with each other, the question still caught her off guard. Thanks to her "unli" phone credits, the gushing teen fan and her suitor managed to decide on the matter.

"Sabi niya sa akin, 'Ano, pwede ba kita maging girlfriend?' Sabi ko naman, 'Ha? Uh...' Tapos tumawag siya. Hindi ko alam ang isasagot ko! Tapos pinatay ko, tapos sabi niya, 'Okay lang naman kung ayaw mo eh, sabihin mo.'

"Tapos, sabi ko, 'Teka.' Tapos tinext ko siya ulit. 'Busy lang ako kanina.' Tapos text lang ako nang text. Tapos iyon na, doon na nagsimula," she said.

Admitting he didn't know her age when they initially met, Aguilar said he couldn't help but develop feelings for "babe." "Ang naramdaman ko sa kanya, mahal ko siya, kahit pa sabihin mong 16," he said.

"Ni hindi ko nga naisip na umatras eh. Ang naisip ko lang, 'Anong magagawa ko, nandito na 'to eh, na-inlove na ako eh.' Paninindigan ko na 'to," he said.

The next step, Aguilar recalled, was to come clean with the relationship to "babe's" parents. He acknowledged the importance of this move, noting his girlfriend is still a minor.

"Nararapat lang 'yon, kasi menor de edad siya. Kung 'di ko ipapaalam 'yon, pangit ang dating sa magulang niya 'yon. So sabi ko sa kanya, 'Babe, paalam natin sa nanay at tatay mo na meron na tayong relasyon. Kailangan malaman nila, at sa'tin mismo manggaling, hindi kung saan-saan pa manggaling,'" she said.

Online firestorm

This was the same motivation that pushed Aguilar to publicly admit the relationship early this week, five months after they made it official. His candid sharing drew criticisms with a number bringing up possible legal charges against him.

But Aguilar, who took active part in demonstrations against the Marcos regime in the '80s, remains unfazed.

"Hindi ko alam kung may nilalabag akong batas. Kung meron man, ewan ko kung masasakop ng batas ang puso ko. Kasi nung Batas Militar din, ipinagbabawal ng batas ang mga kinakanta ko, pero kinakanta ko parin. Pwede nga akong mamatay nung mga panahon na 'yon eh, pero hindi na sakop ng Batas Militar ang puso ko eh," he said.

However, it's a different case with "babe," who expressed concern over the criticisms against their relationship.

"Tao ako eh, hindi ako manhid," she said. "So masakit. Pero hindi ako nasasaktan sa mga komento nila eh, na kesyo ganito, ganito, ganito. Nasasaktan ako sa realidad ng buhay na baka isang araw, 'yung relasyon namin ay masira dahil sa mga isyu na gano'n. 'Yun lang," she said.

Asked if she feels the controversy will affect her ties with Aguilar, "babe" said, "Hindi natin masasabi, pero sana hindi. Sana huwag."

Amid what she referred to as a "trending issue," "babe" assured Aguilar of her complete commitment to him. She was quick with words when asked how much she loves the singer, who is 44 years her senior.

"Sobra, as in. As in mahal ko siya. Hindi ko masabi kung gaano, kasi walag limitasyon ang pag-ibig eh. Basta mahal ko siya, iyon 'yun. As in, sobra," she said.

"Mabait siya. Makulit din," she added, of Aguilar's qualities she finds most attractive. "Tapos 'yung mga mali ko, kino-correct niya. Minsan naiinis ako, 'Hayaan mo na!' Pero 'yun ang maganda sa kanya, kasi tinuturo niya sa akin ang tama. Mahal ko siya do'n eh."

On the subject of getting married, Aguilar said that shortly before the exclusive interview, he and "babe" were discussing their long-term plans. They are hoping to wed in two years, before she starts to "change her mind."

"Medyo maganda-ganda na ang takbo ng utak niya no'n, 18 na siya no'n eh. Baka malay mo, bukas, magising 'to, mauntog 'to, magbago isip nito," he said, laughing, before turning to his girlfriend to add, "Joke lang, babe."

Aguilar said they discussed having a civil wedding, but brought up hopes of exchanging vows before the altar. "Sa simbahan sana, kung pahintulutan kami makarating doon," he said.

The two, for now, are only happy to have the approval of his children, whom he referred to as "kabarkada ni babe." Meagan, in particular, even took to Twitter on Friday to defend her father against critics. Jeriko, "babe" noted, has also welcomed her as a part of their family.

With her parents' approval and with his kids' "liberal" outlook, does "babe" feel ready to tie the knot?

"Medyo, pero hindi pa gano'n kahanda. Kulang pa. Hindi pa sapat," she said.

As for her message to critics, "babe" was brief with words. "Pag na-inlove kayo, maiintindihan niyo rin ako... Ako, nandito na ako sa stage na 16 palang ako, pero alam ko na na matured na 'yung puso ko para magmahal. 'Yun lang." - ABS-CBNNews.com

007 Submarine Car Out in the Market for Million Bucks

007 Submarine Car Out in the Market for Million Bucks


The Lotus Esprit featured in the underwater sequence in the James Bond classic The Spy Who Loved Me sold at auction in London on Monday for just under $1 million.

The car was one of eight Esprits used in the 1977 movie. Although it cannot be driven, it was designed to be fully submersible and apparently is still operational.

Although the car sold for just under its $990,000 guidance, it was the subject of a pitched bidding war between two buyers that made for a dramatic scene at the RM Auctions house in London, the Daily Mail reported.

The car was discovered covered in blankets in 1989 by a Long Island building contractor in a storage container purchased for $100.

According to CNBC, the Ian Fleming Foundation later authenticated the car as the vehicle used in The Spy Who Loved Me. It had been placed in storage after the film was released and remained there for 10 years until the storage fee was forfeited. The contractor who purchased the container at first had no idea that the car was the same one used in the Bond movie.

In The Spy Who Loved Me, Roger Moore, as 007, under pursuit from a helicopter, drives the car off the end of a pier into the sea. The Lotus retracts its wheels, sprouts stabilizers and rudders, and skims just below the water's surface.

"I believe it's time we've said goodbye to an uninvited guest," Moore tells the nonplussed Barbara Bach, riding shotgun. Moore presses a button on the dashboard and a missile streaks from the car, destroying the helicopter.

This was the first time the Esprit had been offered for sale since its discovery. The 1964 Aston Martin DB5 used in Goldfinger and Thunderball sold for $4.6 million in 2010. - hollywoodreporter.com


Ancient Rock Toppled Disturbing Video Surfaced, Felony Charges Possible

Ancient Rock Toppled Disturbing Video Surfaced, Felony Charges Possible


An ancient rock  in Goblin Valley State Park in Utah toppled by a group of rowdy Boy Scout leaders has brought a harsh backlash and could even lead to felony charges.

The Scout leaders were exploring a formation of Jurassic Period rocks that resemble mushrooms with their scouts when they apparently decided to destroy one of the rocks.

In a video of the incident, the men are seen encouraging a friend who is pushing against one of the giant stones, which are between 145 and 170 million years old. When he pushed hard enough the ancient rock toppled from its formation and crashed to the ground.



After seeing the incident on YouTube, Utah State Park officials vowed to bring those responsible to justice.

The men, who were identified as Boy Scout leaders, said they were actually trying to make the pathway safer for some of the boys on the trip with them which the Utah Division of State Parks and Recreation disagrees saying the rock formation did not pose a threat to the hikers.

Glenn Taylor, who admitted to toppling the ancient rock, later said that he regretted the incident. But adding that his conscience is clear about the incident.

The men who toppled the ancient rock could also be facing felony charges depending on how the rock formation is valued.

Sarah Geronimo "Ikot Ikot" Music Video



Here is the official music video for Sarah Geronimo's latest hit "Ikot Ikot" from her current album "Expressions" under Viva Records.




Heto na naman tayo
Parang kailan lang nang huli
Gaano man kalayo
Tayo'y pinagtatagpong muli
Ilang ulit nagkasakitan
Ngunit paulit na gumagaling
Ilang ulit balak na iwan
Ngunit patuloy na bumabalik

Kay rami nang sakit
Na nilimot napabayaan
'Di maiwasang isipin
Na tayo'y para bang tumatakbo

Sa walang hanggan na kalye, tumatakbo
Ang pag-ibig na tila ba 'sang biyaheng
Ikot-ikot lang, ikot-ikot-ikot lang
Ikot-ikot lang, ikot-ikot-ikot
Ikot-ikot lang, ikot-ikot-ikot lang
Ikot-ikot lang, ikot-ikot-ikot

Heto na naman tayo
Damdamin natin ay bumubugso
Tayo ay muling napaso
Pintig ng puso ay lumulusong
Bakit pa ba, hinahayaan
Minsan inisip lumayo na lang
Ngunit hindi kita maiiwan
Mahal pa rin kita ngayon pa man

Kay rami nang sakit
Na nilimot napabayaan
'Di maiwasang isipin
Na tayo'y para bang tumatakbo
(Oh-woah...)

Sa walang hanggan na kalye
Tumatakbo (tumatakbo)
Ang pag-ibig na tila ba 'sang biyaheng
Ikot-ikot lang, ikot-ikot-ikot lang
(Paikot-ikot-ikot lang)
Ikot-ikot lang, ikot-ikot-ikot
Ikot-ikot lang, ikot-ikot-ikot lang
(Ikot-ikot-ikot lang)
Ikot-ikot lang, ikot-ikot-ikot

Araw-araw, dulo't-dulo
May unos na dumaratal
Ano nga bang puno't dulo
Bakit nagtatagal

Kay rami nang sakit
Na nilimot napabayaan
'Di maiwasang isipin
Na tayo'y para bang tumatakbo

Sa walang hanggan na kalye
Tumatakbo (Woah...)
Ang pag-ibig na tila ba 'sang biyaheng
Ikot-ikot lang, ikot-ikot-ikot lang
Ikot-ikot lang, ikot-ikot-ikot
Ikot-ikot lang, ikot-ikot-ikot lang
Ikot-ikot lang, ikot-ikot-ikot

(Ikot-ikot lang, ikot-ikot-ikot lang
Ikot-ikot lang, ikot-ikot-ikot)

Maegan Aguilar Calls Freddie Aguilar and Jovi Gatdula's Detractors "Tanga. Boring. Losers!"

Maegan Aguilar Calls Freddie Aguilar and Jovi Gatdula's Detractors "Tanga. Boring. Losers!"


Maegan Aguilar, daughter of controversial veteran singer Freddie Aguilar, fires back on critics who call her dad names like cradle snatcher, pedophile, sick, dirty old man (DOM) after admitting he plans to settle down with his 16-year-old girlfriend named Jovit Gatdula (read related news HERE).

On her Facebook account, Maegan calls his 60-year-old father's detractor 

Anong problema niyo?’

“Mahigit na sa isang dekadang hiwalay si Tatay sa Nanay namin...6 kaming magkakapatid at sa tingin ko'y wala siyang naging pagkukulang bilang AMA sa amin. Lumaki kaming ‘independent’ and absolutely FREE FROM THE SHACKLES OF SOCIETY. None of us are LIARS or CORRUPT like most people around us. And Tatay dating ‘JOVI GATDULA’ is no problem to any of us at all, desisyon nilang dalawa yun-walang nagpilit sa kanila na maging sila...SO ANONG PROBLEMA NIYO? Kasi INAMIN NI TATAY? anung masama dun? Anung masama kung nagpakatotoo siya? Sige nga!” 

In a follow-up comment, she posted: 

BASAHIN NIYO RIN COMMENT KO SA TANGINATHIS! Sa mga gustong kumontra! sige humirit lang kayo dito sa wall ko...NOTHING YOU SAY WILL IMPROVE NOR RUIN OUR LIVES ANYWAY. E di wag niyong pakinggan ang ANAK- may magagawa ba yun? eh pillar na ng Pilipinas ang ANAK at ang ama kong si FREDDIE AGUILAR, wala na kayong magagawa para sirain siya...AT DAHIL LANG SA GF NIYA? HALERR!!! ANG TANGA TANGA NYO NAMAN!!!”

To someone who told her not to get stressed, she replied: 

hindi ako mase-stress noh...I LOVE CALLING OUT MORONS!!! I like saying TANGA SILA KUNG TALAGANG TANGA SILA, it's actually relaxing, you should try it.”

She also took issue with fellow musicians who reportedly cast a few stones themselves.

Mas naba-bad trip ako sa post ng mga kapwa naming musikero...calling my dad sick, a pedophile etc etc. Parang hindi nila alam ang buhay na pinasok nila. Kung mga manong kayo, mga prude kayo, e kayo yun! Ang boring ng buhay niyo! Kayo ang lolo, hindi ang tatay ko!”

“What's with these male musician losers who are so hypocritical about my tatay just because they couldn't land hotties for wives or even date lang! It's just too funny and I can't pass up not making patol!”

Among the celebrities who expressed on Twitter their thoughts on Freddie and Jovit Gatdula's love affair were:

Daniel Radcliffe Describes His First Gay S#x as "Really Painful"

Daniel Radcliffe Describes His First Gay S#x as "Really Painful"


Daniel Radcliffe who plays an author and noted homosexual beat poet Allen Ginsberg in the upcoming film "Kill Your Darling" talks about gay sex and what goes with it.

His role in the movie gave the former Harry Potter star a little bit of insight into guy on guy intercourse, after its director John Krokidas said that he had never seen an intimate M2M scene portrayed this accurate on film before.


"I don’t think there’s any difference between how one falls in love. People express love differently, person to person, but it’s not gender or sexuality related. The only difference it made was obviously the actual sex scene, of course," Radcliffe said.

"I was talked through it by the director. He would be telling me what I would be feeling in each take. Krokidas said he wanted it to look like an authentic loss of virginity. Basically, gay sex, especially for the first time, is really f*cking painful." the young actor explained when asked about the said sex scene.

Luis Manzano and Jennylyn Mercado Break-up, The True Reason Behind

Luis Manzano and Jennylyn Mercado Break-up, The True Reason Behind


Luis Manzano, in a news released by push.com, confirmed the alleged recent and "final" break-up with Jennylyn Mercado reportedly happened on Wednesday, October 16.

Without giving details as to the true reason behind the ending of their nearly two-year-old relationship, Luis was quoted saying, “We want to keep things private na lang,” when sought for a comment.

While their relationship has been no stranger to tirades for quite a while now, something which started the moment they got together, the most controversial among them though sprouted last year when Jennylyn’s name was dragged as the alleged third party in the separation of actor Paolo Contis from his wife, EB Babes dancer Lian Paz, which supposedly got the Kapamilya host suspicious about the Kapuso actress-host.

Salve V. Asis, on her Pilipino Star column today even gave a hint on the possible reason for the break-up, in which she said, "Totoo bang si Dennis Trillo ang dahilan ng hiwalayang Luis Manzano at Jennylyn Mercado? ‘Di umano ay nadiskubre ni Luis na nakikipag-date ang aktres sa ex na Kapuso aktor. Hindi ito ang unang pagkakataon na nabalitang hiwalay na sila pero this time malabo na raw magkabalikan."

Miss World 2013 Megan Young, during her quick visit to the Philippines after winning the crown in Indonesia, responded to the negative comments made by Facebook user Devina DeDiva, which triggered online outrage early this month.

"I wish her the best... Pagdating sa ganyang tipo ng bagay, hindi ko na lang po pinapansin dahil hindi naman 'yun dapat pinapansin," she said in an interview.

Screenshots of DeDiva's alleged comments about the beauty queen and Filipinos in general made the rounds on social networking sites early this month. The words "Devina DeDiva" likewise became the No. 1 trending topic in the Philippines on Twitter as several Filipino Internet users reacted to her comments.

"Miss Philippines is Miss World? What a joke! I did not know those maids have anything else in them," she was quoted as saying.

"They are mostly filthy maids and will only be of that status. End of story," she added.

The national director of Miss World Philippines, the local organizer of the pageant, only expressed pride for Young as she was asked for comment on the issue.

"The honor is not only Megan's but the Philippines," Cory Quirino said in a statement.

Will Eduardo Pajinag Take Home the Who Wants To Be a Millionaire P2-M Jackpot this Sunday? 


Will Eduardo Pajinag win the 2 Million jackpot this Sunday on the popular game show Who Wants to be a Millionaire? hosted by Vic Sotto?

Eduardo is at the threshold of winning the show’s ultimate grand prize when the episode ended last Sunday. He has successfully answered the P 600,000 question and this coming Sunday, he is on his way to answering the P 1 million and P 2 million questions.

Eduardo has climbed to the top of the money tree using the High Risk Money Tree where he could use four life lines. He used “Ask the People” in the early stages of the contest. He, however, used all three remaining lifelines (“Switch”, “50-50” and “Double Dip”) in the 600,000 level. Fortunately, he clinched the correct answer and is already P 600,000 richer should he choose to opt out of the game.

A preview of this Sunday’s episode shows Eduardo contemplating the P 1 million check that bossing Vic has offered to him. Should Eduardo fail to answer the next question correctly, he will go home with only P20,000. Find out this Sunday if he accepts the check or if he pushes his luck to the limit all the way to the P 2 million jackpot.

Who Wants to be a Millionaire? airs this Sunday, 7PM on TV5.

Chloe Grace Moretz Talks About “Carrie”

Chloe Grace Moretz Talks About “Carrie”


As with any indelible horror story, the characters in Columbia Pictures' “Carrie” are three-dimensional. That meant casting “Carrie” gave the filmmakers the opportunity to balance the supernatural elements of the movie with performances grounded in humanity. When it came to casting the title role, one of the more turbulent teenagers in the history of pop culture, that decision in particular was crucial – which is why everyone was excited at the prospect of talented leading lady Chloë Grace Moretz embodying suthor Stephen King’s creation.

The filmmakers admired Moretz’s abilities and offered her the role based on her auditions and striking body of work. “Chloë is very much ahead of her time and Carrie is very much behind the time, so the nexus of those two realities made for a very, very unique Carrie,” says producer Kevin Misher.

And yet, unlike Sissy Spacek, who was in her late 20s when she took on the role in the 1976 original feature, Moretz is a bonafide teenager, which allowed her to readily identify with the world Carrie is maneuvering. “I’ve gone through a lot of different stuff,” says Moretz. “I’m actually living it and I remember it all, and I’m here in it while portraying her, so it was really close to home. That’s why it’s so beautiful for me to do it. I felt an attraction to the role.” Casting an age appropriate teenager was also an instinct in contemporizing the movie; audiences today may not accept a Carrie that is, in real life, 26 or over.

Director Kimberly Peirce says it couldn’t have been more helpful having Moretz going through some of the same experiences Carrie did. “When I talked to Chloë, she was being asked out to the prom, literally at the same time that we were shooting our movie,” says Peirce. “Chloe, a confident and successful young actress with a loving family, is naturally very far from our character Carrie White, an underprivileged girl who is mocked at school and repressed at home. We worked to help Chloe understand and inhabit the more difficult sides of life. We were lucky that Chloe was just starting to go through many of the experiences that Carrie was going through. That youthful innocence and sweetness, and the beginning of her teenage rebellion, forms the spine of Carrie’s character. I am very proud of Chloë’s transformation. You’re going to see Chloë grow up before your eyes on screen.”




Moretz is a big fan of King’s novel, which she calls “beautifully written,” so it was imperative in her mind to make it as emotional as possible. “It is probably the most vulnerable I’ve ever been as an actor,” says Moretz. “So in some ways, it’s kind of terrifying for it to come out, but at the same time, it’ll be kind of an awakening for me because I’ve never been able to show that level of my personal emotions on screen before.

Peirce has nothing but praise for her leading lady’s work ethic, too: “Chloë’s phenomenal! Not only is she a real pro who knows her craft, she’s a really hard worker. Chloë had a lot of work to do on the ‘wire’ [a harness in which the actor is hoisted above ground] when she’s levitating. Typically, an actor on a wire can stay in character about half as long as usual because it’s so physically exhausting, but Chloë stayed up there, in the harness and acted it perfectly.” She adds, “The other thing about Chloë is that the camera loves her. She has an inherent charisma and energy on screen. And she knows the lens, knows where to look, and knows how to hold herself, because she knows what the camera is seeing. When I give Chloë a direction, she knows what I want, and she nails it take after take after take.

Now showing across the Philippines, “Carrie” is distributed by Columbia Pictures, local office of Sony Pictures Releasing International.

Columbia Pictures Releases 3D Dance Movie "Battle of the Year"

Columbia Pictures Releases 3D Dance Movie "Battle of the Year"


Columbia Pictures brings audiences to the international world of B-boying – the urban dance more commonly known as “breakdancing,” in the 3D dance movie “Battle of the Year.”

The film stars Josh Holloway (“Lost,” “Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol”) and recording artist Chris Brown (“Takers”).

In the film, hip hop mogul Dante Graham (Laz Alonso) has created a billion-dollar business out of his b-boy past. Now he intends to reinvigorate America's reputation as the pre-eminent by creating an all-American dream team that can win the legendary Battle of the Year, hip hop's premier competition, in Montpellier, France.

Graham turns to his old friend and former crew mate Jason Blake (Holloway) to coach the team. With help of his assistant coach Franklyn (Josh Peck) and choreographer Stacy (Caity Lotz), Blake struggles to transform 13 headstrong individualists into a disciplined, cohesive and polished crew to rival all comers.

But with the competition only weeks away, the internal rivalry between dancers Rooster (Brown) and Do Knock (Jon Cruz) divides the group into bitter factions, as Blake struggles to overcome the despair and alcohol abuse that have enveloped him since the death of his wife and child in a tragic accident. If the dream team wants to bring the b-boy world championship back to American soil for the first time in 15 years, they will have to face down ferocious personal demons to succeed.

“Battle of the Year” features electrifying dance performances and astonishing displays of power and grace, showing how a street dance from New York has evolved into an inspiring art form for a new generation around the world.




Opening across the Philippines this November, “Battle of the Year” is distributed by Columbia Pictures, local office of Sony Pictures Releasing International.
