TFC@theMovies Releases 'Love Me Tomorrow' in Theaters Worldwide Starting June 3

Star Cinema defies time and tradition as it brings together three of the most exciting names in the Philippine entertainment industry – Piolo Pascual, Coleen Garcia and Dawn Zulueta in a story of three people who get entangled in a love that knows no bounds, “Love Me Tomorrow,” premiering worldwide starting June 3 via TFC@theMovies.

“Love Me Tomorrow” brings together Pascual and Zulueta in their first on-screen team-up as Christy Gonzales and JC Rivera, two individuals, unlikely to strike up a relationship given their age difference.

Christy is a forty something woman who married quite early and has spent the rest of her married life as a devoted wife and mother.  After her husband dies and her children leaves for life overseas, she enters a new phase in her own as an entrepreneur.

In the course of her new life, she meets JC, a man in his late twenties who defies his parents’ wishes and pursues a career as a disc jock instead of managing his family’s business.

With JC, Christy feels a renewed spirit while in Christy, JC finds himself wanting to become a better version of himself.

The non-traditional kind of love is met by mixed reactions especially opposition from Janine (Garcia), a fashion icon who can get the men she wants but not the man she most wants – JC.

Meantime, the relationship that crosses generations gets the acceptance from Christy’s friends but defiance from her children (Maxine Magalona). It may have gotten the admiration of some of JC’s colleagues but it was, much to the chagrin of some of his loved ones, a reality they had to face.

Faced with their personal differences and these feedback, can love truly surpass the challenges and frailties, and sustain the bond that broke the bounds for Christy and JC?

Find out in this movie directed by Gino Santos with a script written and developed by Jeff Stelton and G3 San Diego, “Love Me Tomorrow.”

“Love Me Tomorrow” will have worldwide screenings via TFC@theMovies starting this week: June 3 in the US and Canada; June 3 in Saipan; June 4 in Europe; June 9 in the Middle East; June 9 in Australia and New Zealand; June 10 in Papua New Guinea; and a one day special screening in Singapore and Malaysia on June 19.

Emilia Clarke Finds Love in 'Me Before You'

British actress Emilia Clarke takes a 360-degree turn from her famous Mother of Dragons character, Daenerys, in "Game of Thrones" to portray the wide-eyed, endearing Louisa, in New Line Cinema's heart-tugging romance, "Me Before You." 

"What drew me to this movie were the words of Jojo Moyes, the book first and then the script," explains Clarke. "I was hooked on page one and so excited to play a character with such charm and sincerity, who is so authentically and brilliantly British, and with such a lovely arc in her story." With no clear direction in her life, quirky and creative Lou works hard as a waitress in a small café in order to help her family make ends meet. 

"Louisa is a happy-go-lucky, very content girl," observes Clarke of her character. "When we first meet her, she is working at The Buttered Bun Café, serving tea and scones. She's very good at it, she loves the clientele, and we see she's a sweet kind of caring girl who just wants to do well." 

But times are tough and Lou is let go. Knowing her income is as crucial as her skill set is minimal, she tells her local job placement agent that she'll happily try anything. Her naturally cheery outlook is put to the test, however, when she faces her newest career challenge as caregiver and companion to Will Traynor. A once robust young man, he became wholly dependent on others due to an accident two years prior, and his whole world changed dramatically in the blink of an eye.

Director Thea Sharrock says, "Lou lives with her parents, her sister, her grandpa and her nephew in a very small house in a very small town. But her mum doesn't have a job, Granddad doesn't have a job, and Dad now doesn't have a job, so her small income is a very big deal. Yet her outlook remains a sunny one."

To find an actress who could play positive under pressure, the filmmakers cast a wide net. "We saw hundreds of girls, and I had Skyped with Emilia about the role, but I can honestly say that when she walked in to audition and did her first scene, it was literally like Lou was in the room," Sharrock recalls. "There was no question. Her energy was exactly right; like Lou, she was just a breath of fresh air."

Clarke had an easy rapport with the first-time feature director. "Thea is just the greatest, I love her. You'd never, ever, know that this was her first film," she declares. "It's a testimony to her intelligence, her integrity and her work ethic that working on this project, with its very tricky subject matter, felt almost effortless. She was so giving and always had a smile and a laugh to put us at ease, and that trickled down to everyone. I never felt like I was working."

Based on the critically acclaimed, bestselling novel by Jojo Moyes, New Line Cinema's and Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Pictures' "Me Before You" stars Emilia Clarke ("Game of Thrones") and Sam Claflin ("The Hunger Games" movies), under the direction of renowned theatre director Thea Sharrock, making her feature film directorial debut.

Oftentimes you find love where you least expect it. Sometimes it takes you where you never expected to go…

When Louisa Clark—Lou, as she's known—unexpectedly loses her waitressing job she must scramble to replace the income that her tight-knit family depends upon. Desperation drives her to take a job as a caregiver to Will Traynor, a man who used to be a wealthy banker with an adventurous soul, living life to the very fullest, but for whom those days are in the past. After a tragic accident, Will lost the desire to live and now keeps everyone at a distance with his caustic, overbearing attitude. But unlike his family, Lou refuses to tiptoe around him or cater to his moods. In fact, her sparkling personality and easy nature are hard for even Will to ignore, and soon enough each becomes exactly what the other needs.

Set for release across the Philippines on June 15, "Me Before You" is distributed by Warner Bros. Pictures, a Warner Bros. Entertainment company.

The film's Original Motion Picture Soundtrack will be available to download/stream via digital stores starting June 3. Get the CD for only Php 459.00 at Astroplus/Astrovision stores starting June 10.

Daniel Padilla Humiliated by Fans in Isabela, His Reaction? Kagulat-gulat!

Daniel Padilla's professionalism was once again tested when a (not so) fan humiliated him during a live performance in his recent out-of-town show.


Just recently, Facebook user Kenneth Talosig Ringor IV posted a video of Kapamilya King of Hearts performing "Hinahanap-Hanap Kita" after a live audience in Ilagan City Sports Complex in Isabela when a group of male audience made a scene that caught everyone's attention including Daniel. It was reported that the group called Daniel names and even showed him the middle finger.


The video below shows Daniel talking with the event security on stage before approaching the audience saying: "Oh ano? Nasan na kayo?" He then walked on the other side of the stage and murmured "#*+%@& pala kayo" that made the event's organizers decide to switch his microphone off.

Julie Anne San Jose Graduates from College

Kapuso award-winning singer/host/actress/endorser/recording artist and concert performer Julie Anne San Jose is looking forward to a new chapter in her life as she graduated from college on Tuesday.

Julie Anne graduated from Angelicum College in Quezon City, majoring in Communication Arts. 

She admitted that finishing her degree while managing a singing career resulted in "sleepless nights, fatigue and even disappointments."

"I've realized it's okay to admit I wasn't perfect, I was struggling. I've juggled work and studies, yet managed to survive," she wrote as the caption to her graduation photo she shared to her more than 500,000 followers on Instagram.

"As I went through four and a half years, I've learned that it pays not to worry so much about where you ranked but rather think about the joy you get with what you do.

"Life doesn't offer us a smooth path. There will always be tough times, regrets and failures as well as success, reward and happiness," San Jose added.

"It's been a long road but with hard work and patience, anything is possible. This is certainly a huge milestone. The tassel's worth the hassle," she concluded.

And there was everything. Sleepless nights, fatigue and even disappointments, but those were transient emotions brought by much studying and lack of rest sometimes. I've realized it's okay to admit I wasn't perfect, i was struggling. I've juggled work and studies, yet managed to survive. I definitely have to say that it's all worth it. As I went through four and a half years, i've learned that it pays not to worry so much about where you ranked but rather think about the joy you get with what you do. Life doesn't offer us a smooth path. There will always be tough times, regrets and failures as well as success, reward and happiness. Before closing this chapter, it's pertinent to thank the people who continue to inspire me. My family who raised me, for the guidance and unconditional love; my friends and peers, for joining me in the fight for life, and making all efforts fulfilled; my professors and teachers, for imparting profound wisdom; and lastly, God for the blessings and the wonderful gift of knowledge. It's been a long road but with hardwork and patience, anything is possible. This is certainly a huge milestone.. The tassel's worth the hassle. San Jose, Julie Anne P. Bachelor of Arts in Communication Arts, 2016

Keanna during her May 30 guesting on the hit podcast show "Good Time with Mo" with Mo Twister and Mara Aquino revealed that he once had s%x with the Kapamilya host.

"Naissue na po yon 10 years ago na po at nanahimik na sila at dala lang yon ng kabataan," she posted.

Are you also doubting Keanna's revelation about her alleged one-night stand with these actors? Are we expecting these gentlemen to strike back?

Watch: Mother and Daughter Haunted by Evil Spirits in 'The Conjuring 2'

Every parent's greatest fear is seeing their child in pain. But what if that child's source of pain is indescribable, unreachable, and may not even be real? In Warner Bros. Pictures' new horror thriller "The Conjuring 2," it becomes clear for Peggy Hodgson, that something supremely evil has permeated her London home and infiltrated her own daughter, Janet. It's equally clear that there seems to be absolutely nothing she can do to protect her family.

British actress Frances O'Connor, who portrays the overwhelmed Peggy, says, "She's a single mum with four kids living in a council house, so at the start of the film, life's already pretty tough. She's got no money and her husband's not paying any support, so there's a lot of strain within the house. Pretty quickly some small, paranormal things happen and Peggy is so stressed she doesn't even see that it's there."

Until slowly, things begin to escalate. "One night, she is finally confronted by it when the girls' wardrobe just slams across the room and hits a door. And from there it just gets much worse."

O'Connor was aware of the incidents at the real Hodgson home at the time they occurred. "I'd read the stories and seen those pictures of the girls levitating, that kind of thing, and found it quite terrifying. There was a lot of documentation. So when the script came to me, I was interested in telling that story."

In casting the part of the haunted daughter, director James Wan admits, "I think the hardest role to cast was Janet Hodgson, to find a young actress who could really capture the vulnerability of what this 11-year-old girl went through, and I've got to say, we are so fortunate to have found Madison Wolfe."

With so much of the film's believability riding on her portrayal of a possessed young girl, he adds, "She was able to play Janet's innocence and naiveté at the beginning, but then slowly change her as she becomes more affected - and infected - by this entity that's living in her house."

Wolfe says modestly of her character, "I think she's very smart and a sweet girl, but when these things start happening to her, it affects her a lot, like it would anybody."

Vera Farmiga easily sings her young costar's praises. "Maddy Wolfe is very impressive, very savvy, for such a young age. She has so much stamina, and she went inward and downward into these cavernous depths of negativity, yet she's really a lighthearted and joyful child. It was quite surprising to watch because she'd go deep in a take and then just snap out of it and talk clinically about it to James, and then go right back into it. It's just a very finely tuned instrument that she has and in my opinion her performance is nothing short of astounding."

Patrick Wilson had worked with Wolfe previously, though her performance - including her English accent - were so good he didn't realize it was the same actress at the script read-through. "I kept thinking she might be a girl in my son's school, that she was the British counterpart of this other child I've seen," he recalls. "But then, at the end of the reading, she told me she'd played my daughter in another film, and out comes this Louisiana accent! Granted, we didn't have a lot of scenes together in the earlier film and it was a few years before, but her accent for this film was so good I had no idea she wasn't English."

Opening across the Philippines on Thursday, June 09, "The Conjuring 2" is a New Line Cinema presentation and will be distributed by Warner Bros. Pictures.

Trillanes & me, heard about it yesterday from a cousin, a close friend, and an ABS coworker. I realized I'd let the malicious liars succeed by keeping quiet because by ignoring the made up Hawaii meet up- may maniniwala & may madadagdag na teleserye plot twists.
