TFC Awarded ‘Business of The Year’ by Daly City, California

At the historic installation of newly-elected City Council members at the City Council Chambers of Daly City's Civic Center, TFC was named Mayor's Business of the Year.  According to Mayor Juslyn Manalo, TFC provides entertainment and offers shows that reflect the Filipino culture and values. 


But more than that, Manalo adds that "it's really through the work they've done for the community. For the past two years they've partnered with the city of Daly City to do the Filipino American History Month celebration and it's wonderful to partner with a business that cares about the community. We see a long-term partnership with The Filipino Channel and it's an honor to present this award to them."

 

ABS-CBN Global Head of Corporate Affairs & PR Nerissa Fernandez accepted the award on behalf of Global COO Olivia De Jesus and North and Latin America Managing Director Jun Del Rosario. In her speech, Fernandez quoted the late Chairman Emeritus Don Eugenio Lopez, Jr when he was asked if ABS-CBN is about values first or service first? "ABS-CBN is about values first because values comprise the soul of service." She added that "Daly City provided us a business environment wherein we could freely put into practice our cherished corporate values."


In attendance at the ceremonies were California State Senator Scott Wiener and Assemblymember Philip Ting of the California Legislature, both of whom also presented TFC with Certificates of Recognition.

 

Fernandez underlined the significance of being named Mayor's Business of the Year in Daly City, the largest city in San Mateo County, saying it "is an impactful recognition for ABS-CBN and TFC. But we shouldn't wear it over our shoulders like a mantle of 'we achieved this and that.' What this award affirms is the importance of corporate citizenship. Our business is not removed from the living, breathing community it operates in. What we do or not do in and with the community matters. As newly inducted Daly City Councilman Rod Daus-Magbualsaid, 'My father taught me to look at Daly City as my garden. If you take care of the plants, the plants will take care of you.'"

Other attendees of the Special Meeting of the City Council were Congresswoman Jackie Spier, San Mateo County Supervisor David Canepa, former San Francisco Mayor Willie BrownOther awards given out by the city are the Citizen of the Year, Commissioner of the Year, and Youth of the Year.

Acclaimed Young-Adult Novel “Mortal Enginges” Blazes the Screen

Universal Pictures and MRC present Mortal Engines, the startling, new epic adventure directed by Oscar®-winning visual-effects artist Christian Rivers (King Kong), based on the award-winning book series by Philip Reeve. Joining Rivers are the three-time Academy Award®-winning filmmakers of The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings trilogies, Fran Walsh, Philippa Boyens and Peter Jackson, who have written the screenplay. 

Hundreds of years after civilization was destroyed by a cataclysmic event, a mysterious young woman, Hester Shaw (Hera Hilmar), emerges as the only one who can stop London—now a giant, predator city on wheels—from devouring everything in its path. Feral, and fiercely driven by the memory of her mother, Hester joins forces with Tom Natsworthy (Robert Sheehan), an outcast from London, along with Anna Fang (Jihae), a dangerous outlaw with a bounty on her head.

Check out the new Spot for Mortal Engines and watch the film in Philippine cinemas December 5.


It would take seven years for author and illustrator Philip Reeve to pen his first young-adult novel, Mortal Engines, which was first published by Scholastic in 2001. "The biggest idea I could think of was a city on wheels but then I had to ask, 'Why would you want a city on wheels?'" Reeve says. "It seemed arcane, but then I realized, you would want a city on wheels to chase a smaller city on wheels…and when I worked that out everything fell into place."

The acclaimed novel, which earned the Guardian Children's Fiction Prize, the Los Angeles Times Book Award, the Smarties Gold Award and Blue Peter Book of the Year distinctions and was shortlisted for the prestigious Whitbread Award, would evolve into a series of four books known as The Mortal Engines Quartet: Mortal Engines, Predator's Gold, Infernal Devices and A Darkling Plain.

Reeve's story takes place centuries after civilization was destroyed by a cataclysmic event known as the Sixty Minute War. Humankind has adapted and a new way of living has evolved. Gigantic moving cities now roam the Earth, ruthlessly preying upon smaller traction towns. Tom Natsworthy - who hails from a Lower Tier of the great traction city of London - finds himself fighting for his own survival after he encounters the dangerous fugitive Hester Shaw. Two opposites, whose paths should never have crossed, forge an unlikely alliance that is destined to change the course of the future. 

During his time at art college, Reeve had experimented with a Super 8 camera but decided it would be easier to illustrate and write novels than make movies. ("You don't have to give people lunch or dress them in costume," Reeve says, dryly.) Still, he had a clear vision of his story's cinematic future. "Mortal Engines always wanted to be a big action movie when it grew up," Reeve says. "It has a three-act structure and big set pieces. It was just itching to be filmed."

Scholastic Media president and Mortal Engines' producer Deborah Forte agreed. "There is a little bit of an actor in Philip, and a little bit of a director, so when he writes it's in a very cinematic way," Forte says. "You know what the world is, how it looks and sounds and what it feels like to be there." And Forte, who had helped bring The Golden Compass to the big screen, immediately thought of the one filmmaker with the extraordinary vision and peerless sensibility to adapt Mortal Engines into a blockbuster movie experience: Peter Jackson. 

Mortal Engines is distributed in the Philippines by United International Pictures through Columbia Pictures.  Follow us on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/uipmoviesph/

Anne Curtis Stars in Yam Laranas’ Mystery Thriller Movie “Aurora,” Showing December 25



Over a thousand passengers perish when a passenger ship named "Aurora" collides into a rocky shore.  Many of the dead bodies turn up along the shore of the tiny island near the shipwreck, but many are still missing, and their distressed families are in need of a place to stay in as the search continues.  This is the situation Anne Curtis' character finds herself in in "Aurora", the official entry to the Metro Manila Film Festival 2018 from VIVA Films and ALIUD Entertainment. 


 
Anne Curtis plays Leana, owner of a rundown inn in the island and guardian to Rita, her 8-year-old sister, played by Phoebe Villamor.   She is asked to help look for the cadavers in exchange for a large amount of money.  Leana is hesitant, but her fear is overcome by her sympathy for the families and her sister's encouragement. 

 

Helping her in the search are her ex-boyfriend Ricky, played by Marco Gumabao, and a boatman named Eddie, played by Alan Paule.  

Though they are willing to brave the strong waves and murky waters, will they have the heart to face whatever awaits them deep in the ocean?  

Can Leana protect her sister when the dead find their way home?

This mystery thriller is directed by Yam Laranas, the highly acclaimed director of Sigaw (2004) which was turned into a Hollywood film entitled The Echo (2008),The Road, and Abomination.  He also wrote the screenplay of "Aurora" with Gin de Mesa (All Souls' Night) and serves as one of the producers.  

This is Anne's third movie this year, after the huge box office success of Sid & Aya (Not a Love Story) last May, followed by her staggering performance in the action thriller BuyBust in August.

The actress is once again praised for her dedication and determination to give all she's got in portraying her role.  Director Laranas reveals in an interview that Anne *"had to be underwater for 30 seconds to 1 minute to shoot her scenes" but she refused to use the double that's provided for her.

Marco Gumabao says that working with Anne is a dream come true, describing her as "sobrang bait, sobrang humble, easy to talk to and approachable."  

"Aurora" is showing in cinemas on December 25, 2018.

TNT Boys Make History as Youngest Artists to Sell Out a Majou Concert in the Philippines

 

International sensation TNT Boys have added another history-making feat to their long list of accolades as they now hold the record of being the youngest artists to headline a sold-out concert, not only at the Araneta Coliseum but in the whole country, with their successful "Listen: The Big Shot Concert."         
                                                                  
Thousands of Filipino and foreign fans filled up the Big Dome as they witnessed the powerhouse performances of Mackie Empuerto, Keifer Sanchez, and Francis Concepcion, who all thanked their fans for their unwavering love and support in their concert last November 30.

 

With their signature high notes and hair-raising vocals, the TNT Boys opened the night with a performance of "And I Am Telling You I'm Not Going." The trio, overcome with emotions, also teared up during their performance of "Flashlight," one of their most applauded of the night, while the crowd lit up the venue with glow sticks and mobile phones.

Unkabogable star and "Fantastica" lead star Vice Ganda also brought laughter to the crowd and expressed how proud he was of the three boys, whom he considers his sons. "Tawag ng Tanghalan" hurado K Brosas also joined the fun by dressing up as Jessie J, singing "Price Tag," and cracking jokes.

Jed Madela offered a world-class performance with the TNT Boys as they sang popular and well-loved classics. Meanwhile, "TNT" grand champions Janine Berdin, Jhon Clyd Talili, and Noven Belleza proved their vocal prowess in their powerful rendition of "We are the Champions."

The trio's friends from "Your Face Sounds Familiar Kids" Xia Vigor, Onyok Pineda, Esang De Torres, Sheena Belarmino, Noel Comia Jr., Chunsa Jung, and Krystal Brimner were also present to impersonate popular music icons.

The program ended with the TNT Boys' all-out performance of "Listen," which drew loud cheers and screams from fans.

 

"Listen: The Big Shot Concert" did not just draw crowds at the Big Dome, as thousands of ABS-CBN TVplus subscribers watched their concert live right at the comfort of their homes via the digital TV service's KBO feature.

Officially formed as a trio after their viral vocal showdown in the late night talk show "Gandang Gabi Vice" last year, the TNT Boys have since impressed viewers here and abroad and earned awards.  They recently received the Royal Cub award from the entertainment blog Lionheartv for consistently making headlines and their trending performances. They were also named the Pop Child Performer of the Year at the PPOP Awards for Young Artists 2018, which honored outstanding young artists who have made a mark on Philippine pop culture, music, and performing arts. 

The boys are also regulars in "ASAP Natin 'To," where they give stellar vocal performances every week alongside the country's finest singers. In time for the holidays, the TNT Boys are also releasing a Christmas album titled "TNT Boys Christmastime" under TNT Records where they give a modern twist to some of the most known Christmas song classics.

Fans are also up for more surprise as the boys are joining an international talent competition in the US, which will air soon.
