After Gerald Anderson and Jake Cuenca, Arci Muñoz Caught Flirting with Jericho Rosales

A remake of the 1980s film “Kastilyong Buhangin” starring Nora Aunor and Lito Lapid, “Never Say Goodbye” also features veteran actor John Estrada.

She will be paired with Jericho Rosales and John Estrada.

From 'Inside Out,' Biull Hader Now Invades 'The Angry Birds Movie'

Hot off voicing the emotion Fear in the Oscar-winning “Inside Out” and starring in the hit comedy “Trainwreck,” actor Bill Hader now takes the role of the porcine principal, Leonard, in Columbia Pictures' new adventure comedy “The Angry Birds Movie.”

Leonard is the leader of the pigs, the one who launches the birds’ beef against the pork. Proud, egomaniacal, and vain, Leonard’s a real pig, so no wonder that he ruffles Red’s feathers a bit.

Leonard is super charismatic – so charming that he wins over the birds straight away,” says director Fergal Reilly. “Bill created a voice that had authority, but also charm – a showman personality. Bill has a velvety quality to his voice – warm and super funny – so when Leonard arrives on Bird Island, he wins the birds over effortlessly.”

Regarding Leonard’s distinctive cadence in speaking, Hader says, “My first recording session for the movie was really trying to figure out the voice. The filmmakers were saying they wanted it to be like Robert Preston in ‘The Music Man’ – a kind of a huckster. We started there, and then because Leonard is a big, round pig, the voice sort of became this Southern man.”

Hader describes the plot of the film this way: “The movie’s about this pig named Leonard who finds this island with these birds on it, and rightfully, he should have their eggs, but apparently, they don’t want him to have their eggs. There’s one bird, Red, played by Jason Sudeikis, who figures out Leonard’s plan to get the eggs – which is crazy not cool, because Leonard has every right in the world to have those eggs – and the birds start this awful mission against him.”

Actor, writer, comedian and producer, Bill Hader has become one of the most sought after comedy minds in Hollywood. In 2015, he was heard in Pixar’s “Inside Out,” alongside Amy Poehler, Mindy Kaling, Phyllis Smith and Lewis Black. Directed by Pete Docter, “Inside Out” received many accolades including wins for Best Animated Feature at the 88th Annual Academy Awards, Critic’s Choice Awards and Golden Globe Awards, and was Oscar-nominated for Best Original Screenplay.

Also in 2015, Hader co-starred alongside Amy Schumer in Universal Pictures’ comedy, “Trainwreck,” directed by Judd Apatow. “Trainwreck” opened to rave reviews at the 2015 South by Southwest Film Festival, and was nominated for Best Motion Picture – Musical or Comedy at the Golden Globe Awards.

“The Angry Birds Movie” takes us to an island populated entirely by happy, flightless birds – or almost entirely. In this paradise, Red (Jason Sudeikis), a bird with a temper problem, speedy Chuck (Josh Gad), and the volatile Bomb (Danny McBride) have always been outsiders. But when the island is visited by mysterious green piggies, it’s up to these unlikely outcasts to figure out what the pigs are up to.

Featuring a hilarious, all-star voice cast that includes Bill Hader, Maya Rudolph and Peter Dinklage, as well as Keegan-Michael Key, Kate McKinnon, Tony Hale, Ike Barinholtz, Hannibal Buress, Jillian Bell, Danielle Brooks, Latin music sensation Romeo Santos, and YouTube stars Smosh (Ian Hecox and Anthony Padilla), the Columbia Pictures/Rovio Entertainment film is directed by Fergal Reilly and Clay Kaytis, produced by John Cohen and Catherine Winder, screenplay by Jon Vitti, and executive produced by Mikael Hed and David Maisel.

Opening across the Philippines on May 11, 2016, “The Angry Birds Movie” is distributed by Columbia Pictures, local office of Sony Pictures Releasing International.

Marian Rivera in Her Most Challenging Role to Date Starts on May 2 at 1045AM #YanAngMorning

From toprating primetime soaps, to dance-musical variety show to Sunday afternoon party and now a talk show host? Can she make it to being the next Kris Aquino?

Marian, during the recent press conference for her newest TV project "Yan ang Morning" admits feeling tense over hosting a talk show. “I’ve hosted a musical variety show before, ‘Marian’, pero first time ko to do a talk show and this is more challenging kasi hindi pwedeng puro ganda lang ang ipakita mo. When GMA first offered it to me, sabi ko, kaya ko ba? Kasi mas carry kong umarte sa harap ng kamera doing drama than hosting a talk show. But then, naisip ko, wala namang masama if I’d try to do things na never ko pang ginawa before. I have to grow and, so far, marami na kaming na-tape na episodes at enjoy naman ako.” she said.

Malapit naman kasi sa puso ko ang topics namin, like breastfeeding,” says Marian. “Nagbe-breastfeed naman talaga ako and I alsolearned a lot from our guests kung paano ako magkakaroon ng more milk. Pag hindi ko alam, hindi ako nagpe-pretend na alam ko. Hindi rin ako nagi-English dahil ayokong magmukhang nagmamagaling ako o nagmamaganda. Sabi ng husband ko, just be yourself. And I’m very thankful na napaka-supportive niya sa akin. I discuss with him yung topics namin at marami akong nakukuhang opinions and inputs mula sa kanya na nagagamit ko naman, like doon sa topic na do we spare the rod and spoil the child. Kasi ayaw naming mamalo.” Marian added.

The show features some great segments like a cooking portion where she shares some secret recipes, physical fitness, DIY (do it yourself projects) and fun games with her very special guests.

Don’t miss the pilot episode of “Yan ang Morning” on Monday, May 2,  at 10:45 AM before “Princess in the Palace” on GMA-7.

Economic Scorecard: The Bloomberg Weigh” assembles a panel of experts in a round-table discussion to evaluate the economic platforms of the five Presidential candidates and to conclude who has the best platform to bring Philippine Economy in greater heights. The panel is composed of BloombergTVPh News Anchor Quintin Pastrana, International Trade Law Expert & Host of Bloomberg TV Philippines' (BloombergTVPh) Political Capital Tony Abad, Public Finance Expert & Movement for Good Governance Lead Convenor Nene Guevarra, Senior Economist Louie Dumlao, BDO Capital President Ed Francisco and Businesworld Columnist & Foundation for Economic Freedom President Calixto Chikiamco.

Which platform best fuels the country to economic development? Which policies impact deep enough to promote inclusive growth?

'Abu Sayyaf to Kidnap Kris Aquino!' - President Noynoy Aquino

President Benigno Aquino III,  on Wednesday, disclosed that the bandit group Abu Sayyaf is allegedly planning to kidnap his sister Kris Aquino.

While some people doubted Noynoy's statement, Kris herself confirmed the news on Thursday adding that this is the reason for not renewing her contract with ABS-CBN.

In his letter to Marinel Cruz of Inquirer, Kris said:

Marinel- I was taken by surprise by the Malacañang statement. I wasn’t warned it would be made public. I had a 4 a.m. call time today for a TVC shoot and my sister Viel sent me the PDI front page.

“Honest truth, I was made aware of this plot late February, early March. My sisters tried to shield me because they didn’t want me to have more fear than necessary. If you recall, my sons and I left in March to go abroad for three weeks. The health reasons I cited weren’t fabricated because the stress coming from the threat had caused my BP to constantly elevate to higher than 150/110.

“I didn’t renew with ABS CBN because of this threat. That was a painful decision, but I needed to make that judgment call so as not to expose others to harm. It was that serious that I walked away from a new two-year contract for a job I’ve loved for 20 years. I informed my bosses the pertinent facts, but not full details from the intelligence reports, and they kept what I was allowed to relay to them under wraps. I was told to strictly keep the news contained and I obeyed. And I am grateful for the respect I was shown.

“And to their credit, everybody closest to me – both coworkers, relatives and friends – kept quiet to protect me and because they knew this was a matter to be taken seriously with utmost precaution.

“We left Palm Sunday and returned for my endorsement work commitments second week of April. You can check my IG (Instagram) feed from March onwards – there have been very few location specific posts, and since our return, the two boys (her sons Josh and Bimby) and I have been living with PNoy.

“If you’ll use this text – I hope I am quoted verbatim. I read and re-read my text to you four times to make sure I didn’t reveal more than what I have knowledge of and what is safe to share.” -

The Court of Appeals (CA) Indicts Willie Revillame for Child Abuse

The Court of Appeals (CA) has affirmed with finality a Quezon City judge’s ruling of probable cause to indict television host Willie Revillame for child abuse.

Revillame was charged by state social workers with making a seemingly reluctant  six-year-old boy dance lewdly in an episode of his defunct game show “Willing Willie.”

In a three-page resolution dated April 11, the appellate court’s 13th Division denied the motion for reconsideration filed by Revillame’s lawyers for lack of merit.

The court said Revillame did not present a new argument to cause a reversal of its

Sept. 7, 2015, ruling that there was prima facie evidence to charge Revillame with violation of the Anti-Child Abuse Law, and that the Quezon City regional trial court had correctly issued the corresponding arrest warrant.

We have carefully reviewed our decision vis-a-vis the motion for reconsideration and we have found that the issues raised in the present motion and the arguments advanced in support thereof are a mere rehash of those already considered and passed upon, and no new issue or substantial argument has been presented to justify the reversal or modification of the assailed decision,” the resolution written by Justice Ma. Luisa Quijano-Padilla said.

The court said the RTC “committed no grave abuse of discretion” in finding probable cause to indict Revillame for violation of child abuse laws.

QC Judge Roberto Buenaventura issued the arrest warrant for Revillame on Oct. 4, 2013. The TV host posted bail but questioned his indictment in the Court of Appeals.

The appellate court ruled that “as there is probable cause for the petitioner’s commission of a crime, his arrest and arraignment should now ensue so that this case may properly proceed to trial, where the merits of both parties’ evidence and allegations may be weighed.”

Revillame was charged with exploiting the boy contestant who appeared pressured into dancing like a male stripper in order to win a prize during the “Willing Willie” show that aired on March 12, 2011. -

Why Robert Downey Jr. Dominates the Avengers in ‘Captain America: Civil War’

Robert Downey Jr. returns as the godfather of all Super Heroes, Tony Stark and leads Team Iron Man in Marvel’s “Captain America: Civil War.”

Tony Stark is a different man - he’s made an honest assessment of the recent events with Ultron and, in a shocking conservative turnaround, is in agreement with world governments that the Avengers should be regulated. This move pits Iron Man against Captain America on a political level but their personal conflict runs deeper - and down a more dangerous path than either could have ever anticipated or imagined.

The actor explains what it means when Iron Man and Captain America find themselves at odds in the film’s story. “You don’t want to see these two characters create a tear in the fabric of their relationship because you know how pervasive it can be,” says Downey. “So it gives you a fair amount of shatter to play with. I’ve always liked the idea of how do you recover from that. What has to happen for there to be any sort of homeostasis by the end of a rift like that between Steve and Tony?

Joining Team Iron Man in his fight against Team Cap are fellow S.H.I.E.L.D. members Natasha Romanoff/Black Widow, Col. James “Rhodey”Rhodes/War Machine, T’Challa/Black Panther and The Vision.

Natasha Romanoff aka Black Widow is played by Scarlett Johansson for the fifth time. Despite Natasha’s loyalty and friendship with Steve Rogers since the early days of the now-defunct S.H.I.E.L.D., she disagrees with his position and in a surprise move joins Tony Stark’s team, in support of governmental oversight. Always strategic in her thinking and heroic in her actions, Black Widow is an asset that Tony needs - but one that he cannot control.

A recently christened Avenger is Colonel James “Rhodey” Rhodes aka War Machine played by Don Cheadle. “As a new member of the Avengers, we find Rhodey trying to figure out how to still be on the side of his friends who are these self-appointed protectors of the universe and at the same time still maintain his military standing and try to abide if he can by the letter of that law,” says Cheadle.

For Paul Bettany, returning to role of The Vision after the birth of his character in “Avengers: Age of Ultron” was exciting as it provided the opportunity to expand and explore more deeply the fascinating character. “What I love about Vision is that he’s on his own quest, which is to understand human beings,” says Bettany. “Right now he realizes that real loyalty has got to come through love. If new facts come to light, his allegiance could change because he’s existing with logic and only with logic. So I think that he’s very intrigued by what love is and what affection is and is trying to figure that out because I think it’s the most human of qualities. I really like that; it’s sort of moving because not having that quality makes him dangerous and I think he’s aware of that.”

One of the most anticipated additions to the Marvel Cinematic Universe, making his debut in “Captain America: Civil War,” is T’Challa aka Black Panther. Describing Black Panther, Chadwick Boseman offers, “He is a paradox. He is so aware of and so connected to a tradition and lineage. Yet, he is a forward thinker, a maverick. He is very strategic. You never know quite what he’s going to do next, so there’s a certain mystery about the character. At the same time, he’s a public figure. Known by everyone but known by no one.”

Marvel’s “Captain America: Civil War” stars Chris Evans, Robert Downey Jr., Scarlett Johansson, Sebastian Stan, Anthony Mackie, Emily VanCamp, Don Cheadle, Jeremy Renner, Chadwick Boseman, Paul Bettany, Elizabeth Olsen, Paul Rudd and Frank Grillo, with William Hurt and Daniel Brühl.

Anthony & Joe Russo are directing with Kevin Feige producing. Louis D’Esposito, Alan Fine, Victoria Alonso, Patricia Whitcher, Nate Moore and Stan Lee are the executive producers. The screenplay is by Christopher Markus & Stephen McFeely.
