Vice Ganda, Toni Gonzaga and Daniel Padilla Reunite for the New MOR Philippines Jingle

The new MOR Philippines jingle, sung once again by Vice Ganda, Toni Gonzaga, and Daniel Padilla, will unite the different MOR stations across the country under one sound, giving listeners a familiar home on the airwaves.

MOR Philippines will bring FM radio listeners around the Philippines together with the simultaneous launch of its new jingle, across its 17 stations nationwide, at 11:55 AM on Monday, September 24.

It was written by Lloyd Oliver "Tiny" Corpuz, Thyro Alfaro, Rox Santos and Jonathan Manalo, who have also composed hit songs that are played on the radio.

MOR Philippines is uniting not just through its jingle but also through its plugs and shows, like the number one FM radio drama on-air right now, "Dear MOR," which has already been airing all over the country.

Jack Black Plays a Fun Uncle Who Teaches Magic in “The House with a Clock in Its Walls,” Now Showing in PH Theaters

For the role of Jonathan Barnavelt in Universal Pictures' fantasy-adventure The House with a Clock in Its Walls, it was important to the filmmakers to find someone who would serve as the initially frightening relative to live with…who then becomes the really fun uncle to join you on an adventure.

For director Eli Roth, the role can be done justice only by comedy superstar Jack Black.

"Jack just encapsulates all of it," says Roth.  "It's hard for me to think of anyone else in the role other than him.  I'd seen him perform live in Tenacious D; I've seen all of his movies.  You think of Jack, and you just laugh; he has so much personality, so much charm, and he's so funny.  But he also has such heart.  In his films like School of Rock or Bernie, he's an incredible dramatic actor.  He has such humor, life, and such a soulful quality to him.  It's a dream come true to watch him create this role."

The magical adventure tells the spine-tingling tale of 10-year-old Lewis (Owen Vaccaro) who goes to live with his uncle Jonathan Barnavelt (Black) in a creaky old house with a mysterious tick-tocking heart.  But his new town's sleepy fa├žade jolts to life with a secret world of warlocks and witches when Lewis accidentally awakens the dead.

Black has long thought of himself as a kid at heart, and like his collaborators, he appreciated the fact that Jack Kripke's script brought the spirit of John Bellairs, author of the book from which the film was based.  Despite its dark themes of loss and tragedy, the story offers lessons, excitement and pure joy.  "This is a movie that kids of all ages can enjoy," reflects Black, "but we want to give them a thrill.  Sometimes you have to go dark to give them that."  He particularly appreciates the secret at the story's core: "They're living in a house that has a living clock of doom, and they have to disengage the clock to save the world."

One of the core themes to The House with a Clock in Its Walls is honoring one's individuality.  In the film, Jonathan plays certain notes on his saxophone, and it will open up his magic…unique to him.  Black reveals that element is one of his favorites about the story: "Tapping into our unique weirdness is the key to a person's individual magic.  Let the individuality out." 

Black was duly excited about Cate Blanchett's casting as powerful witch Florence Zimmerman, and he remains appreciative of their time on set together.  "The idea of working with Cate was exciting and daunting," he states.  "I told everyone I knew I was working on a Cate Blanchett movie; I think she's the best actor in the world.  Blue Jasmine is one of the best performances of all time."  

The chemistry between Black and Blanchett is unexpectedly whimsical, and Blanchett and Black had a ball delivering Kripke's zingers at one another.  "Jonathan and Florence have been long connected through their love of magic," adds Blanchett, "but also a mutual respect.  They bicker and fight like George and Martha from Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf.  But they have a deep love of one another, and they understand each other's foibles—as well as the pain that they've both experienced.  There's a great love between them, as much as they tussle with one another."

Now playing in Philippine cinemas, The House with a Clock in Its Walls is distributed by United International Pictures through Columbia Pictures.  Follow us on Facebook at

Action Comedy “Johnny English Strikes Again” Unleashes New Trailer

He's back doing what he does best.  Universal Pictures has released the brand new trailer for the spy comedy Johnny English Strikes Again starring Rowan Atkinson (the Johnny English films), Olga Kurylenko (Quantum of Solace) and Emma Thompson (Beauty and the Beast).  

Check out the trailer below and watch Johnny English Strikes Again in Philippine cinemas October 10.


About Johnny English Strikes Again 

The UK is in peril.  Five days before the PM is to host her first G12 summit, MI7's security is breached and every agent in the field identified and exposed.   The only hope of finding the perpetrator is to bring an agent out of retirement, but with most of them either dead or close to it, the head of MI7 is left with only one choice, and his name is English… Johnny English.  

Casting aside his job as a teacher, Johnny English accepts his mission, but things have changed since he was last in the field; guns and gadgets have been replaced by digital phones, sports cars by electric hatchbacks.  English is aghast, but quickly finds a way around this new protocol, reasoning that it takes an analogue approach to catch a digital mastermind.  And so, blowing the dust off the fully loaded Aston Martin, digging out the exoskeleton suit and magnetic boots, arming himself with transmitter sherbet dips and exploding ear buds and retrieving Bough from the forgotten basement of MI7, English embarks on his mission. 

Johnny English Strikes Again is distributed in the Philippines by United International Pictures through Columbia Pictures.

5 “Playhouse” One-Liners That Will Make Your Day

Mornings are now filled with kilig and good vibes with the airing of the newest Kapamilya series "Playhouse," where married couple Patty and Marlon try to prove that love deserves a second chance.

Played by Angelica Panganiban (Patty) and Zanjoe Marudo (Marlon) who are about to separate - until a tragedy involving their friends Brad (Patrick Garcia) and Emily (Denise Laurel), forced them to stay together: Patty and Marlon have been chosen to look after the late couple's son Robin (Justin James Quilantang).

Together with the newest loveteam of Donny Pangilinan (Zeke) and Kisses Delavin (Shiela), who play warring friends and eventually falling in love, they show that love happens despite differences.

On its first week, "Playhouse" has already given us a few lines that ring true. Thanks to Patty and Marlon, these scenes and more are all worth watching on iWant TV.

1. "Sa buhay dapat palaban tayo palagi." / "We should always be strong and persevere through life." – Marlon

Marlon shows his charming ways in a stand-up comedy bar that catches the attention of Patty and reaffirms her notion that even if she is hurting in love, life goes on and the fight continues for a happy life.

2. "Ang relasyon ang pinapatagal, hindi ligawan."/ "Relationships are the ones that should last, not the courtship."  -Marlon

Marlon and Patty's whirlwind relationship is solidified with the belief that relationships are the ones that should last, not the courting phase when it is just putting one's best foot forward.

3. "Pareho tayong PT eh. Parang Tanga…sa pag-ibig." "We do silly things when we are in love."- Pattyz`

Marlon and Patty soon discover that they both love the same way, without reservations and wholeheartedly. They kid each other that this makes them do silly things and act stupid because of love sometimes.

4. "Ang pag-ibig parang rugby yan eh. Mabilis dumikit. Matindi kumapit."/ "Love is like a bonding agent. It sticks and lingers for a long time." -Marlon

In a stand-up comedy bar, Marlon sides with Patty's claim that it's hard to move on by comparing love with rugby, because love is sticky and sturdy like a bonding agent.

5. "Hindi dapat pinagdadamot ang second chance sa kung sino mang nagkamali sa buhay."/ "Second chances should always be given especially to those who want to change."  -Marlon

Marlon gives financial aid to one of his workers at his carwash shop who's soon becoming a father, he gives it as help and relates that it's okay to believe in someone who really wants to change.

The digital experience of freenetizens started with getting concert passes by redeeming desired tickets in the freenet shop using the freenet points they have collected over the past months. These points are earned once they complete in-app missions which include visiting sites, downloading apps, as well as referring their friends to freenet.    
During the concert, paying for food and drinks was also a breeze thanks to the quick and easy cashless transactions brought by PayMaya QR. Concert-goers were able to pay for refreshments from various merchants inside the venue using only the PayMaya app installed in their smartphones. Freenetizens who used PayMaya QR were not only able to pay conveniently, but they were also surprised with instant rebates ranging from P9 to P999 with just a minimum purchase of P99 at participating merchants during the concert.  

But the digital fun didn't stop at the concert venue, because freenetizens from all over the country were also given free access to the Freeniversaya experience through Facebook Live, so they can listen to the songs and jam to the hits of their favorite artists wherever they may be in the country, united under the hashtags #Freeniversaya and #GrabeAngSaya all throughout the night.

For one, select freenetizens at the audience were able to join a special edition of the Dailygaya Raffle Promo where three lucky winners were each able to take home one of the following prizes: a brand-new Yamaha SZ16, roundtrip tickets for two to Taiwan, and 1 million freenet points, which the winner can use to redeem endless rewards at the freenet in-app shop including airtime load, data packages, gaming pins, and many more.  

In addition to this, three lucky freenetizens from Luzon, Visayas, and Mindanao were also given the VVIP experience during the Freeniversaya concert complete with VVIP tickets plus a backstage tour before the show, hotel accommodations, as well as roundtrip tickets for two to those who live in the provinces.  
Throughout the night, freenetizens enjoyed one reward after another. Concert-goers were treated to an exclusive prepaid load flash sale courtesy of PayMaya. All PayMaya users were given 30 minutes to get a 100% cashback on their prepaid load purchases worth P20 via the PayMaya app. 

"I think it's an understatement that we really went all out in giving exclusive perks and prizes to all freenetizens during our anniversary concert.  We really want to drive home the message that it's really more fun and rewarding to be a freenet user. To our freenetizens, watch out as we have a lot in store for our dear community, " added Heidi Garayblas, Associate Marketing Director at Voyager Innovations.
