“Amazing Spiderman 2” Final Movie Trailer

“Amazing Spiderman 2” Final Movie Trailer

The final international trailer for “The Amazing Spider-Man 2” has just been launched  by Columbia Pictures which can now be viewed below:

Synopsis: We’ve always known that Spider-Man’s most important conflict has been within himself:  the struggle between the ordinary obligations of Peter Parker and the extraordinary responsibilities of Spider-Man.  But in “The Amazing Spider-Man 2,” Peter Parker finds that his greatest battle is about to begin.

It’s great to be Spider-Man (Andrew Garfield).  For Peter Parker, there’s no feeling quite like swinging between skyscrapers, embracing being the hero, and spending time with Gwen (Emma Stone).  But being Spider-Man comes at a price:  only Spider-Man can protect his fellow New Yorkers from the formidable villains that threaten the city.  With the emergence of Electro (Jamie Foxx), Peter must confront a foe far more powerful than he.  And as his old friend, Harry Osborn (Dane DeHaan), returns, Peter comes to realize that all of his enemies have one thing in common:  Oscorp. 

The film, directed by Marc Webb from a screen story and screenplay by Alex Kurtzman & Roberto Orci & Jeff Pinkner based on the Marvel Comic Book by Stan Lee and Steve Ditko, is produced by Avi Arad and Matt Tolmach.

Be the first to see the defining moment in Peter Parker’s journey! Opening across the Philippines on April 30, “The Amazing Spider-Man 2” is distributed by Columbia Pictures, local office of Sony Pictures Releasing International.

Also playing a key role in the deal was Neil Cole, chief executive officer and president of Iconix Brand Group (NASDAQ: ICON), which, in a joint venture with Charles M. Schulz Creative Associates, formed Peanuts Worldwide in 2010, the home to the global “Peanuts” property.

Twentieth Century Fox Animation director of development Ralph Millero worked closely with Morrison and with the Schulz estate in securing the rights to the property.

This is a momentous step for the Peanuts brand.  The beloved characters, Snoopy, Charlie Brown and the whole gang resonate with multiple generations all over the world,” commented Neil Cole, CEO, Iconix Brand Group. “This film will give us a new medium in which to engage consumers globally and showcase the power of the Peanuts brand, ” added Cole.

Matteo Guidicelli Exposes His Big, Bold, Exciting Mentos Triple Treat

What lengths would you go to for what you desire most? Would you be willing to show all the different things that make up who you are? When was the last time you surprised even yourself?

It's questions like these that award-winning actor, accomplished athlete and all-around heartthrob Matteo Guidicelli answers in a bold three-part mini movie that is sure to leave everyone wanting more.

The Filipino-Italian has never been one to shy away from stuff that may make your run-of-the-mill young star take a step back. With Matteo, it's all about pushing the limits in the pursuit of his passions, whether he's diving deep into an acting role or zooming towards breaking records on a racing circuit.

This year, the buzzworthy dreamboat gives us a chance to see sides of him we may be aware of, but have never witnessed firsthand. Genuine hyphenates are hard to come by these days, and Matteo will erase any doubt that he's a man of every sense of the word.

That's why he signed up to be the star of the Mentos Strawberry Mix Thrillogy: a uniquely entertaining online experience that shows Matteo's multi-faceted persona. After all, a different kind of candy needs a different kind of leading man.

With the new Mentos Strawberry Mix, three surprising flavors are perfectly packed in one roll, giving you more than your usual candy. Feel the exciting tangy burst of Sour Strawberry, relish the rich sweetness of Vanilla Strawberry, or indulge in the reliable simplicity of Classic Strawberry.

The Mentos Strawberry Mix Thrillogy lets Matteo take us on three fun-tastic rides that showcase all that he has to offer as he tries to win the heart of the girl of his dreams... with two very special strawberry-headed accomplices in tow. After all, even the man who can seemingly do it all needs a little help at times, making the Mentos Strawberry Hitmen the ideal quirky allies on Matteo's out-of-the In The Thrill of the Chase, Matteo's active, energetic side will make pulses race as he embodies his adrenaline driven “Action Star” persona. As you watch him run, swim, and practically do everything he can to earn honorary stuntman stripes, you're sure to get a refreshing kick like you would from a Sour Strawberry dragee inside Mentos Strawberry Mix.

Matteo also indulges in his romantic Italian roots in The Thrill of Declaring Your Love as he spouts poetry that would make even Michelangelo blush. Well, maybe not but it's worth it to see him try! You'll definitely find Matteo “The Italian Lover” just as irresistible as the full flavor of Sweet Vanilla (especially with his adorable Italian accent).

Some ladies prefer their suitors to be a little more straightforward though, and Matteo doesn't disappoint in The Thrill of Being Real. There's no denying the “Boy Next Door” charisma he exudes even without all the frills and his down-to-earth appeal will win you over like the uncomplicated delightfulness of Classic Strawberry flavor.

It will be plain to see that there's more of Matteo to love in the Mentos Strawberry Mix Thrillogy (Guys, be prepared to take notes if you want to make a girl swoon). So whatever you may be looking for, you're sure to crave exciting experiences of your own once Matteo's shown you how much fun it can Because, really, why settle for the ordinary when you can triple the thrill? And Mentos has, through the years, taught us to get a kick out of the simplest things, and make every day a chance to live out loud It's a kind of magic that's found in every Perfetti Van Melle product—the European company that prides itself in pushing the envelope of candy excellence around the world. Other famous brands like Fruittella, Smint, Alpenliebe and Chupa Chups are stamped with the same flavor of fun that Perfetti Van Melle has made its calling card.

Deniece Cornejo Grandmother Florencia Cornejo to "Face The People" this Friday

This Friday, Florencia Cornejo,  grandmother of Deniece Cornejo (who became a central character in a string of controversies involving her, businessman Cedric Lee and actor-comedian Vhong Navarro), sits on Face The People’s ‘silya de konsensya’ to once and for all decide if she should remain mum or start fighting those who oppress her granddaughter and their family.

Cornejo, 63, marched to the TV5 studio without fear and told the people that she’s had enough of all the false accusations and defamations thrown against her family. She lamented all the unfortunate incidents they have encountered from the moment the controversy involving her granddaughter broke loose. For Cornejo, the media has not been fair to them.

She found adversity in entertainment columnists Pete Ampoloquio and Peter Ledesma who told her that as members of the press, it is their right and duty to write about the truth, such as Deniece’s cosmetic surgeries. Meanwhile, Florencia’s cousin Rufino rushed to her defense, saying that some people are quick to lay judgement.  Cornejo’s colleague, Rachelle, also shared how the old lady lost her clients once they found out that she’s related to Deniece.

Women’s rights group Gabriela also shed light on the issue of rape, while two rape survivors shared how they coped with their tragic memories.

Should Cornejo fight for her family’s honor, or should she just let the heavens avenge her? Find out tomorrow (Friday) on Face The People, 4:30 PM on TV5.

News5’s Launches Karunungan University Tour

News5’s Launches Karunungan University Tour

As part of TV5's initiative to strengthen the educational experience of college students in the country, News5 - the Kapatid Network's News and Information Arm - has recently launched the Karunungan University Tour. 

TV5’s initiative of strengthening the educational experience thru media among college students via the Karunungan University Tour continues as News5 partners this time with the country’s largest university in terms of student population, the Polytechnic University of the Philippines. 

This Saturday, March 22, the students of PUP will be treated to an afternoon of creative and insightful activities, with a selection of documentary viewing from the KBO - KARUNUNGAN, BALITA, OPINYON - block of News5 such as “History with Lourd”, as well as its weekly Saturday docu features, namely “Kaya” and “Yaman ng Bayan” to name a few.

This will then be followed by an exclusive talk about media as a knowledge influencer, which will be facilitated by none other than award-winning poet, musician, News5 anchor and host, Lourd de Veyra.

The Karunungan University Tour had its successful initial run at the Philippine Christian University last March 10, where over 300 students participated in the event and listened to the exclusive lecture of news anchor and host of “KBO” block’s Numero (airing every Tuesday at 10pm), Cheryl Cosim.

TV5 aims to further this special cause by establishing even more partnerships with other educational institutions, after it rolls out in the tour’s third stop, in April.

When Love Goes from Fireworks to Flat-Lines in “About Last Night” Movie

When Love Goes from Fireworks to Flat-Lines in “About Last Night” Movie 

Released in 1986, the acclaimed romantic comedy “About Last Night” resonated with audiences over its unflinching look at the ins and outs of dating, from the hot meet to the day after to the ever after. Based on the David Mamet play “Sexual Perversity in Chicago,” the film followed the lives of four singles, originally played by Demi Moore, Rob Lowe, James Belushi and Elizabeth Perkins. The film was a playful illustration of how easily true love can get sidelined by misguided ideas, bad advice and social pressures.

Now, Screen Gems updates the original movie’s timeless themes for a modern audience hungry for a fun, relatable romantic comedy that reflects their own experiences, with the 2014 reboot of “About Last Night.” The updated version stars Kevin Hart (“Grudge Match”), Michael Ealy (“Almost Human”), Regina Hall (“The Best Man Holiday”), Joy Bryant (“Parenthood”), Christopher McDonald (“Billy Madison”) and Paula Patton (“2 Guns”).

Producer Will Packer appreciated the new “About Last Night’s” date night appeal, big laughs, and nuanced look into the dynamics of relationships and the gradual (or quick) transition from fireworks to flat-lines.

My first impression was wow, we are going to have some fun with this,” recalls Packer. “There were a lot of places to go because this is a film with a lot of different levels and depth. Beginning with the initial courtship and feeling each other out, the story delves into what are the preconceived notions, the misperceptions, the flaws in communication styles, which all explore well beyond the surface.”

Taking many cues from the original, the new film takes an unflinching look into how the technology of today can influence relationships. “We take a look at dating in the contemporary modern society with all the trappings of technology, economic climate and social mores that exist today,” explains Packer. “It’s really interesting to experience the world of dating through the prism of these four singles who are living, loving, laughing and playing in today’s downtown Los Angeles.

What also appealed to Packer was the script’s balance between hot romance, meaningful drama, and full-on comedy. Each of the four singles was written as a fully fleshed-out character, and together they’re a group who live out loud and don’t shy from their vulnerabilities or mistakes. Life can be exciting, awkward, and downright hilarious at times -- what appealed to Packer was the perfect mix represented in the story.

There are some surprises in the character portrayals in this version that veer differently from the original and I loved the fact that there are sequences that feel like an out and out comedy,” says Packer. “We have moments that feel like these actors are on the loose with finding the comedy of the ridiculous moments, but in addition, there is true heart. There are a lot of touching moments that really allow it to ebb and flow at just the right pace to find a healthy balance between the two.” 

Central to the relationships in “About Last Night” is the sense that they happen against a backdrop of a thriving city, teeming with busy, purposeful lives. That’s why the filmmakers chose the newly revitalized downtown Los Angeles – a nexus of business, modern living, entertainment, sports, and food -- as the movie’s setting. From the neighborhood vibe of Casey’s Irish Pub to the classy nightclub feel of Broadway Bar, and iconic locations such as Dodger Stadium, Disney Hall and the Orpheum Theater, Los Angeles is for once allowed to be itself on screen instead of pretending to be another city.

One of the really, really cool things about this film is the fact that downtown LA is a character,” says Packer. “We wanted to show Los Angeles with its own energy, its own vibe. We wanted people to see what the revitalization of downtown looks like, and show these single thirtysomethings living and working and playing in a downtown metropolitan urban area.”

Opening soon across the Philippines, “About Last Night” is distributed by Columbia Pictures, local office of Sony Pictures Releasing International.

Kris Aquino and Daniel Matsunaga Involve in a Sea Accident

Kris Aquino and Daniel Matsunaga Involve in a Sea Accident


Kris Aquino and son Bimby, together with Daniel Matsunaga and Erich Gonzales were caught in the middle of sea accident in Palawan.

During the Kris TV episode aired today, March 19, the pump boat which transported the  show’s staff and crew including Kris, her son Bimby, and guests Daniel and Erich, stalled in the middle of the sea as the machine overheated and malfunctioned. 

The pump boat that was supposed to take them to an island in Coron, Palawan where the Two Seasons Island Resort and Spa is located, stopped working and fumed midway causing Kris and the others to panic.

At first the stars were still joking around but eventually got anxious as things got serious. Kris even said that she almost called her friends who have a chopper to rescue them while Erich resorted to stress eating snacks. Rescuers came and they were towed by a bigger boat to the island.

Erich, aminin mo, it was an experience. At parang, sabi ko bakit ang liit liit nun island, ang layo pa. ‘Di ba kasi pag maliit, malayo pa. Sabi ko, bakit ayaw niyang lumaki? Ang tagal. May ganoong feeling talaga tapos parang magfaflash talaga na eto na, this is it. Tapos nun nakita ko si Dianne, yung isang PSG kasama, namumutla na din…nun namumutla na siya, tawag na siya ng tawag ng phone. Sabi ko, serious na to,” said Kris in an interview with Erich. 

Further, Kris said that their experience has a message. “May message yun, God is everywhere so don’t fear.

When they were finally safe, Kris immediately called her sister, Ballsy to tell her that they are alive and prayed at the local chapel in the resort.
