Disney-Pixar Releases "Inside Out' Movie Trailer

The teaser trailer to Disney-Pixar's eagerly anticipated comedy “Inside Out” is now out. Check out below:

From an adventurous balloon ride above the clouds to a monster-filled metropolis, Academy Award®-winning director Pete Docter (“Monsters, Inc.,” “Up”) has taken audiences to unique and imaginative places. In Disney•Pixar’s original movie “ Inside Out,” he will take us to the most extraordinary location of all—inside the mind.

Growing up can be a bumpy road, and it's no exception for Riley, who is uprooted from her Midwest life when her father starts a new job in San Francisco. Like all of us, Riley is guided by her emotions – Joy (Amy Poehler), Fear (Bill Hader), Anger (Lewis Black), Disgust (Mindy Kaling) and Sadness (Phyllis Smith). The emotions live in Headquarters, the control center inside Riley’s mind, where they help advise her through everyday life. As Riley and her emotions struggle to adjust to a new life in San Francisco, turmoil ensues in Headquarters. Although Joy, Riley's main and most important emotion, tries to keep things positive, the emotions conflict on how best to navigate a new city, house and school.

Opening across the Philippines on June 17, 2015 “Inside Out” is distributed by Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures International through Columbia Pictures.

Star Records PR

Enchong Dee will soon be a certified recording artist after he releases his self-titled debut album under Star Records nationwide on Tuesday (October 7). He will have his grand album launch in “ASAP 19” this Sunday (October 5).

My current single, ‘Chinito Problems’ was just originally meant for digital release. That’s why I feel so blessed when we eventually worked on a full album containing my type of music that my followers will surely appreciate too,” said Enchong, adding that he dreamt of becoming a singer since he was nine.

Aware of other actor-singers who have also released albums, Enchong believes his musical career is distinct from fellow Kapamilya heartthrobs like Daniel Padilla, Xian Lim, and Enrique Gil.

All of us have something special to offer. In fact, if you’ll listen to my songs, you can easily tell that it’s me. When you play my album, it’s as if you’re bonding with me and loving what I love. It’s pure fun and dancing,” he said.

Aside from his radio hit single “Chinito Problems,” Enchong’s six-track album also features his own song titled “Isip o Puso,” which he composed during the promotion of “Once a Princess,” his reunion movie project with love team partner Erich Gonzales.

Everyone can relate with the songs in my album. There’s something for those who are in-love, heartbroken, and even those who just love to dance and have fun,” said the 26-year-old actor-singer, whose musical influences range from ’90s boybands such as Backstreet Boys and ‘N Sync, to music icons such as Michael Jackson, Josh Groban, and Usher.

Completing the tracklist of Enchong’s album are “Step No Step Yes,” “Hanggang Dito Na Lang,” “Seloso” and “Tambalang OMG,” which he sang with Kapamilya leading lady star Alex Gonzaga. It also includes the alternative version of “Step No Step Yes” and minus one versions of all the songs.

The digital version of Enchong’s self-titled debut album is now available worldwide via and iTunes. The CD is available for only P199 at all record bars nationwide beginning October 7.

UAAP Finals Game 1 Winner: FEU Tamaraws v. NU Bulldogs

ABS-CBN Sports+Action PR
The most anticipated sporting event of the year is back as the UAAP finals are set to tip off this October 4 on ABS-CBN and ABS-CBN Sports+Action! The stage is set as National University and Far Eastern University go head to head for collegiate basketball immortality and the UAAP crown.

ABS-CBN Sports will bring the exciting action of the UAAP straight to the homes of Filipinos across the country and around the globe. The UAAP finals game 1, the 1st of a 3 game series, will air live this Saturday on ABS-CBN Channel 2 at 3:00pm, on ABS-CBN Sports+Action at 7:00pm and on TFC.

This year, the NU Bulldogs defied the odds and overcame a twice to beat disadvantage against the star studded Ateneo Blue Eagles team lead by league MVP, Kiefer Ravena. The Bulldogs displayed championship caliber defense like no other and left the high-octane offense of The Eagles in disarray. Moreover, team captain Gelo Alolino was excellent late in the game hitting a 3-point shot and 2 crucial free throws scoring the team’s last 5 points. Lastly, NU bigman Alfred Aroga was able to seal the victory with a block against ADMU’s Ravena. This year marks the first time NU will be in the finals in over 40 years.

On the other side, the FEU Tamaraws survived the series against a tough De La Salle Green Archer’s team lead by Jeron Teng. FEU’s fast paced offense and stellar outside shooting proved to be too much for the Green Archers. The Tamaraw’s ended DLSU’s back-to-back championship hopes with a buzzer beating 3-pointer by star Forward Mac Belo. In an interview after the game, Mac Belo credited his game winning shot to a lot of luck and his teammate Mike Tolomia for drawing the defense and giving a good assist. With this win, the FEU Tamaraws have a chance to win its 20th title in the Men’s Basketball division.

Will NU complete their dream season by winning only their 2nd title in the UAAP Men’s Basketball division or will FEU stay true to their winning ways and raise yet another championship banner?

Find out who will come out on top this year! For updates on the series schedules, tune in to ABS-CBN, ABS-CBN Sports and Action or visit ABS-CBN Sports + Action’s official website

In the first episode for the month of October airing on October 5 (October 2 London time and October 4, Riyadh and Pacific time), Arturo (Pepe Pimentel) starts to make up for his mistakes and rekindle his relationship with his youngest daughter Maya, his wife Teresita (Sylvia Sanchez), his eldest daughter Kute (Aiza Seguerra), and his grandson and Kute’s son Cho (JM Ibañez).  Like what fathers normally do, Arturo performs some chores at home.  Kute, who has served as the father figure since her father left, finds it hard to accept Arturo back in their lives and confronts her mother about it.  Over at the Lim residence, Abby (Mutya Orquia) and Nikki (Janella Salvador) comfort their brother Luke (Jerome Ponce) who is experiencing stress from his college duties.

On the next episode of the kilig-serye, Maya as the new mother of the Lim children, persuades the kids, especially Abby to limit the use of digital gadgets as it may interfere with their studies.  Maya also visits her Obstetrician - Gynecologist to check on her possible pregnancy.  Meantime, Ser Chief tries to surprise Maya but gets disappointed when she does not answer his call.  This leads to a rift between the two love birds.  Maya comes home from work and tries to reconcile with her husband in her sweetest way.  This episode airs on October 12 (October 9 London time and October 11, Riyadh and Pacific time).

Cho finally bonds with her lolo (grandfather) Arturo on the third episode this month airing on October 19 (October 16 London time and October 18, Riyadh and Pacific time).  However, the closeness seems to go wrong when Teresita starts to feel uneasy about it which makes Kute worry.

Daniel Padilla Caught with Another Girl, Not Kathryn Bernardo nor Jasmine Curtis-Smith

Whisper Cottony Long Press Release

Kapamilya Teen King Daniel Padilla talks about his type of girl, ang babaeng may tapang, in a new video entitled "Daniel ♥ Whisper Fearless Girl". 

According to Daniel, his ideal girl is #fearless to stand up for what she wants. “Siya yung tipong confident tumayo para sa sarili, hindi niya inuupuan lang ang problema. May tapang na tumayo at talikuran ang nakasanayan, hindi sunud sunuran sa nakagawian. May tapang na tumayo at manguna sa pagbabago. Wala siyang tinatago kaya wala rin siyang kinakatakutan... angat na angat siya sa iba.”

The video takes off from Whisper’s #LikeAgirl campaign that debunks stereotypes on how a girl behaves. The superior sanitary pad brand believes that Filipina adolescents today are less constrained to excel in any field they might want to venture into. However, their confidence is sometimes decreased by concerns about leaks during Sixty percent of Filipinas today experience leaks, the highest leakage incidence in Asia compared to countries like Japan (21%) and Korea (9%)*. This, coupled with confused feelings about their changing bodies, are the greatest negative drivers of their confidence. Because leaks have become a barrier for young women to take charge of situations, they can sometimes still be perceived in the negative girl stereotype – submissive, timid and hesitant.

Check out the video here:

Whisper Cottony Long pads are two inches longer than regular pads, giving up to 100% no back leaks, so girls can take control of their leaks, and therefore take control of their lives. With Whisper Cottony Long, these girls can stand up and achieve what they want with confidence.

Whisper challenges Filipina teenagers to make the switch and be a Whisper #fearless girl, the kind that men like Daniel Padilla admire. According to Whisper brand manager Jan Jizelle Ang, “A Whisper girl is a fearless girl, ready to take on anything the world throws at her. Whisper Cottony Long eliminates the fear of back leaks and frees her to confidently live her life to its fullest potential.

Kapuso Stars Walk Out on Tom Rodriguez During 'Don't Lose The Money' Taping

Don’t Lose the Money PR
Kapuso stars Rafael Rosell, Pancho Magno, Bettinna Carlos and Victor Basa walked out on "Don’t Lose the Money" game master Tom Rodriguez during the recent taping of the Kapuso game show.
Tom was supposed to announce the results of the game when one of the day’s contestants Pancho Magno walked out of the set.

Without a word, Pancho stormed out and his teammates Bettinnas and Victor followed soon after.

John “Sweet” Lapus, from the opposing team, acted pissed off. One of his teammates Rafael, left the set too.

Sweet opened up his frustration to other teammate Pauleen Luna. “Game lang ‘to. Ang cheap naman… It’s part of the game,” he remarked.

After a few seconds, the contestants who left the set walked back in carrying cakes with lit candles.


The delighted Tom started sobbing, especially when he saw Carla Abellana with them.

His leading lady and the woman he is dating took him by the hand and tried to console the crying Tom. She also delivered her wish for the Don’t Lose the Money host.

Actually hindi ko na kailangan ipagdasal na bigyan ka ni God ng madaming blessing kasi alam ko He will bless you abundantly because you work so hard and you are so determined. So sana, kayanin mo na lang lahat ng trials, lahat ng struggles na dadating pa sa buhay mo,” she said.

Carla afterwards said that the surprise wasn’t over. “Hindi pa 'yun 'yung surprise mo. Merong mas special pa na surprise sa 'yo,” she declared.

She pointed to the screen where an AVP from Tom’s family played. It showed video greetings from his father, mother, sisters, brother-in-law, nephews and nieces in the U.S.

Happy birthday! Love you, miss you. I watched your show yesterday, it was great. Love you, love you,” his dad William Mott said.

Overjoyed, he thanked everyone who cooked up the surprise for him.

Thank you everyone… best birthday ever. Even though I’m far away from my family, kahit malayo sila, namimiss ko sila araw-araw. Sobrang saya ko po kaya thank you so much,” Tom said.

ABS-CBN’s passenger safety app “PasaHero” won the Gold Boomerang in the Programs Category.

Heartbreaking Father and Son Story Tackles in 'The Judge'

 Warner Bros. Pictures PR

If the sins of the father are said to be visited upon the son, what of the sins of the son? That's the enigma Warner Bros. Pictures' new drama “The Judge” tries to address.

Slick Chicago lawyer Hank Palmer (Robert Downey Jr.) is set to pluck his latest white collar client from the State of Illinois’ prosecutorial clutches when he receives a message that his mother has just passed away. Hank has no contact with his dad, and his mom is the one person in his family—in his entire hometown—with whom he had remained in touch for the past 20 or so years. She is the only one, her death the only event, that can draw him home. What waits for him in idyllic Carlinville, Indiana, however, is much more than a memorial service, and far from a warm welcome. And before he can make his escape, Hank is called back to defend his own estranged father, the town’s venerable judge of 42 years, who suddenly finds himself on the wrong side of the bench.

No matter how old we are, within five minutes of walking back into our childhood home, we are exactly who we were when we left there,” says director and producer of “The Judge,” David Dobkin. “We fall back into those routines; we’re subject to the same behavior and communication patterns of our youth, the same unspoken misunderstandings and unresolved issues, however great or small, which wind up driving us for the rest of our lives.

Pairing acting heavyweights Robert Downey Jr. and Robert Duvall for the first time, the film seeks to explore the role reversal we all face, whether through emotion or circumstance, of having to parent our aging parents and come to terms with our own personal history. How we, as adults, suddenly find ourselves in unfamiliar familial territory, and how even the best intentions don’t always lead us to take the best course of action or, ultimately, generate the best results.

The primary relationship Dobkin wanted to explore was one between a strong patriarchal father and the son who had left home years ago and who, due to an ongoing, seemingly irreparable rift between them, had never returned to face all the skeletons in his boyhood closet.


Robert Duvall, who plays the tough-as-nails judge Joseph Palmer, says he readily signed on because “it was a smart script, very well written with wonderful characters—definitely an actors’ film. On top of that, I felt the people involved would be great to work with. David really brought his own passion and commitment to it in a very positive way, so it was an enticing project for me.”

Joseph Palmer is a man who represents the old world, the old guard,” Dobkin says. “He’s about honor; he believes that how a man walks through life has everything to do with where he ends up and how he is remembered. His legacy, that he helped people, that he protected an ideal, is important to him. Hank, on the other hand, believes you do whatever you need to do to get to the top, and once you’re there and as long as it was legal, it’s okay, even if it was manipulative. As long as the court tells him he wins, he doesn’t care if his client actually did terrible things, or whether he has to do terrible things to help his client. The law decides whether he’s right or wrong. His father views this not as something to be proud of, but as just more bad behavior from the rebellious teen Hank was growing up.

Robert Duvall acknowledges, “The Judge would rather go to prison than lose his honor, definitely. And that complicates things for his sons, especially for Hank, who subconsciously thinks he’ll win his dad’s approval by winning the case.”

Duvall enjoyed exploring such a complex character. “He has many contradictions, like we all do in life. He’s a family-oriented guy, and he loves his sons, but he always left the showing of affection to his wife, and now she’s gone. So he’s very deficient when it comes to relating to them on his own, particularly Hank. They’ve had no contact for years; everything went through Hank’s mother, so they don’t have a way of interacting. And the Judge has never really forgiven Hank for something that happened in the past—or if he has, he can’t admit it, not even to himself, I’d suspect. So he gave me a lot of interesting things to work with, to find within myself.

Downey praises his co-star, “I learned a lot from watching him just be so still and yet so commanding. I’m completely the opposite, we have very different styles. We all did, really. I got to see all these different ways of working come together and really gel, and I came away with an even deeper respect for the work thanks to this experience.”

Duvall admired the younger actor as well, citing, “He’s very, very talented, and he was relaxed and in control of both his performance and his off-camera work as a producer, so it was a pleasure for me.

Opening across the Philippines on October 22, 2014, “The Judge” is distributed by Warner Bros. Pictures, a Warner Bros. Entertainment Company.

SMART Partners with GSMA to Protect Subscribers from Spam Messages

 SMART Press Release

Wireless services leader Smart Communications, Inc. (Smart) is in discussions with GSMA, the world’s top association of mobile operators, for a service that would boost efforts to further protect subscribers from spam messages.
Smart is exploring the use of GSMA’s spam reporting service to enable subscribers to easily report spammers to the National Telecommunications Commission, which can then determine the appropriate sanctions for the erring parties. Under the proposed service, subscribers can forward nuisance spam messages to the dedicated number 7726 (SPAM).

GSMA’s anti-spam service is being used by top operators abroad, such as AT&T, Vodafone, Sprint, T-Mobile, and Verizon.

Smart’s discussion with GSMA is one of the company’s recent efforts to address pressing customer concerns like spam and text scams.

Early this year, Smart launched an education campaign to inform subscribers about the modus operandi of unscrupulous scammers. Subscribers can learn more about scams and report scam incidents at

The most common complaint involves Pasaload, a service that allows subscribers to transfer load credits to others. To address this, Smart now requires subscribers to confirm Pasaload requests to make sure they are aware of the transaction.

If subscribers send an SMS to 808 – Smart’s Pasaload number – Smart sends a message informing them that they are about to transfer load to another person. Load will only be transferred once the subscribers send YES to 808 within 15 minutes.

Aside from putting in additional security features, Smart continues to coordinate closely with the National Telecommunications Commission (NTC) and police authorities to prevent spammers and scammers from victimizing more subscribers.

Smart subscribers are encouraged to report scam attempts and incidents to the company by calling hotline *888 using their mobile phone or sending a message to the @smartcares Twitter account. They may also report scammers to the NTC One Stop Public Assistance Center by calling 9213521 or 9267722, or sending an email to
