Fans of MNL48 Gush Over the #MNL48SaveTheDate Hashtag



MNL48's fans are dying to know the meaning of the #MNL48SaveTheDate hashtag. 

With the non-stop offerings the group has been releasing, the fans are puzzled about what is happening next. On MNL48's Facebook and Twitter pages are pictures of the group's music videos with the #MNL48SavetheDate hashtag. The teaser photos were screen captures of their 4th and 5th singles, "Ikaw Ang Melody" and "High Tension." 

After the postings, viewers have started speculating that something big might happen this September 30 and they have their own sets of theories. 

Facebook user Ramon Siason guessed that it might be tied with the "River" song of the group, "River lyrics na yehey." 

Another FB user Ran Deres thinks that it maybe a new group, "Feeling ko project girl group co-manage ng Star Hunt, tas ila launch sa Sept.30, feeling ko lang naman.

Facebook user Phionalyn Martinez, meanwhile, said that they are like detectives in searching for clues on the said announcement. 

"So ayan na nga po mga kaibigan nagsisilabasan ang mga kapatid ni detective conan ano kanya kanyang conclusion ang mnloves pati sa mv ng HT na sa sep 30 daw magaganap ang save the date ano.... Ano po na ba kasing meron diyan ng ma-stop na ang aming pag-iisip kasi dudugo na utak namin," she said. 

Meanwhile, Group L's reunion slated for September 25 (Friday) has been moved to October 2 (Friday). The voting for the new digital series, "MNL48 Presents Pranks Not Dead" is already finished with fans chosing MNL48 Jan, Andi, Coleen, Dian and Alice to be part of the series. 

Groups MII and NIV recently had a reunion with their fans. MNL48’s sub unit group Baby Blue also released the music video of their newest single "Sweet Talking Sugar” last September 17. Since March, the group has been busy filming different digital series of "MNL48 Presents" namely, "MNL48 Presents: Chain" and "MNL48 Presents: Bye, Us."

Find Your Happy Place in 'Trolls World Tour' Arriving in PH Cinemas Soon



DreamWorks Animation’s musical adventure Trolls World Tour is coming to Philippine cinemas soon! 

Anna Kendrick and Justin Timberlake return in an all-star sequel to DreamWorks Animation’s 2016 musical hit: Trolls World Tour. In an adventure that will take them well beyond what they’ve known before, Poppy (Kendrick) and Branch (Timberlake) discover that they are but one of six different Troll tribes scattered over six different lands and devoted to six different kinds of music: Funk, Country, Techno, Classical, Pop and Rock. Their world is about to get a lot bigger and a whole lot louder. 

Watch the Trolls World Tour trailer at https://youtu.be/ck-0aXE2iDc 

The first Trolls movie unlocks the joy we feel from deep interpersonal connections in our community. If the movie had a thesis, it would be “tapping the source of happiness we possess inside and not fixating upon external quick fixes,” reflects producer Gina Shay. 

While in the first film, Poppy shows the giant Bergens the way to seek inner light, in the second movie, it is the new queen who finds herself the student. This chapter from director Walt Dohrn and co-director David Smith expands the franchise’s core themes. It reaches far and wide to include all communities—those in a musical populace none of the Pop Trolls knew, or even considered, existed. 

As Poppy discovers that every voice matters and that we all need to listen now more than ever, she gains a deeper understanding of her fellow Trolls and figures out how her tribe must live together in musical peace…with the rest of their Trolls World. 

Discussing her desire to subvert audiences’ expectations, Shay offers that her team aspired to expand the world of Trolls, especially in the lyrical and sonic landscape, so they created an entire map of lands based on musical genres. 

We didn’t want to follow the same template,” Shay says. “This movie is about all voices coming together to create a harmony. Everything comes from the story, or else it won’t feel authentic. At that moment in time in Trolls, there was a song that made everyone happy. It physically made you dance and sing. On Trolls World Tour, it’s about bringing everyone together.” 

Cast as members of the different musical tribes is one the largest, and most acclaimed, groups of musical talent ever assembled for an animated film. From the land of Funk are Mary J. Blige, George Clinton and Anderson .Paak. Representing Country is Kelly Clarkson as Delta Dawn, with Sam Rockwell as Hickory and Flula Borg as Dickory. J Balvin brings Reggaeton, while Ester Dean adds to the Pop tribe. Anthony Ramos brings the beat in Techno and Jamie Dornan covers smooth jazz. World-renowned conductor and violinist Gustavo Dudamel appears as Trollzart and Charlyne Yi as Pennywhistle from the land of Classical. And Kenan Thompson raps as a hip-hop newborn Troll named Tiny Diamond. 




Trolls World Tour is directed by Walt Dohrn, who served as co-director on Trolls, and is produced by returning producer Gina Shay. The film is co-directed by David P. Smith and co-produced by Kelly Cooney Cilella, both of whom worked on the first Trolls. Trolls World Tour will also feature original music by Justin Timberlake, who earned an Oscar® nomination for his song for 2016’s Trolls, “Can’t Stop the Feeling!,” and a score by Theodore Shapiro (2016’s Ghostbusters, The Devil Wears Prada). 

Trolls World Tour is distributed in the Philippines by United International Pictures through Columbia Pictures. Follow us on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/uipmoviesph/; Twitter at https://twitter.com/uipmoviesph and Instagram at https://www.instagram.com/uipmoviesph/

Puregold Launches Online Entertainment Channel feat. Luis Manzano and Other Well-Known Pinoy Celebrities

Challenging and trying as the times may be, it is probably in our nature to try and find something that might give us that much needed lift in spirits. Whether it's busying ourselves with new-found hobbies, reconnecting with friends, or simply binge-watching movies, it's all about finding that pleasant diversion that reassures us that better days will come soon. 

Puregold recognizes this hopeful spirit as it continues to look after every Filipino's welfare amidst these uncertain times. As online consumption grows brought about by the "stay home" lifestyle, Puregold has contemplated venturing in this space to further reach out to its public. But this time, it sets out beyond being a retailer as we know it to be and explores the world of bringing entertainment to Filipinos. 

Enter the Puregold Channel. A groundbreaking move to further expand Puregold's digital footprint and engage shoppers. With the rise of video content and live streaming, Puregold shall use Facebook and Youtube to house its own program offerings aimed at bringing entertainment that caters to a wide variety of interests. It will also provide opportunities for branded messaging and segments, sale offers, and ultimately an instant link to frictionless transactions. Viewers will be hooked and engaged with content recurring in a weekly time slot - from a cooking show, to a comedy show to a full-on game show. 

A lot of individuals have recently tried their hand at cooking. Online instruction videos notwithstanding, The Puregold Channel introduces "Luto Mo, Negosyo Mo, Panalo!" as a unique way of presenting culinary lessons. Hosted by TV Personality Arra San Agustin, the show features easy-to-follow recipes. Done in a casual and light manner, even the "non-experts" should be able to relate and stay on track. What's more, a part of the program will be about how to get into the entrepreneurship side of food preparation, indeed a growing trend these days. 




It has been said that "laughter is the best medicine". In these times, surely a lot of us would agree. The Puregold Channel sees the value in looking at the lighter side of life and so another program will serve just the thing. Called "The Ha Ha Hour", this comedy-themed show will feature the sought-after brand of humor of popular lounge comic Alex Calleja. Those who have seen his performances both live and online will surely attest to a potentially riotous time. 




And of course, who doesn't want to win prizes? To make it more exciting, how about being an actual game show contestant right at your own home? Game shows might be a dime a dozen, but not when you have Luis Manzano as host. The promisingly fun "Playtime Panalo" is all that. Online subscribers will have the chance to be chosen as home partners and live out their game show contestant dreams and play for exciting prizes. Joining Luis are equally entertaining co-hosts - their hilarious banter alone will surely knock the socks off of even non-contestants!

Avid Liongoren’s Animation Film “Hayop Ka! The Nimfa Dimaano Story” Premieres on Netflix on October 29, 2020


Netflix released today the first look for Hayop Ka! The Nimfa Dimaano Story. The adult-animation film from the Philippines starring Angelica Panganiban, Sam Milby, and Robin Padilla is set to premiere on October 29, 2020 at 12:01 am. 


Directed by Avid Liongoren, written by Manny Angeles and Paulle Olivenza, Hayop Ka! The Nimfa Dimaano Story is the first animated Netflix Film from the Philippines. Available across Asia in Taglish, and English as 'You Animal!', this adult animation comedy is a refreshing look at societal expectations, personal aspirations and the classic love triangle. 


About Hayop Ka! The Nimfa Dimaano Story

Nimfa Dimaano (Angelica Panganiban), the pretty pussycat is a perfume sales kitty at a department store. Her boyfriend, Roger (Robin Padilla), the macho mongrel is a janitor. Nimfa meets Iñigo Villanueva (Sam Milby) the bourgeoisie business dog and their chemistry ignites. Will Nimfa and Roger's love for DVDs and cheap street food keep them together or will Iñigo's high society charms tear them apart? 

Additional voice cast include Empoy Marquez, Piolo Pascual, Arci Muñoz, Eugene Domingo, Yeng Constantino, Moira dela Torre and Bb Joyce Bernal. 

Animated and produced by Rocketsheep Studio and Spring Films - Erickson Raymundo, Piolo Pascual, Bb Joyce Bernal, E Del Mundo, Avid Liongoren and Manny Angeles. 

"Hayop ako, hayop ka, hayop tayong lahat! Pinaghirapan po namin ang pelikulang ito at kakaibang hayop ang mapapanood niyo dito! Panuurin ang Hayop Ka! 

My team and I took over 3-years of serious hard work to create this light and comical film. While our main goal is to elicit a few laughs, our advocacy is to encourage local animation production. In the global animation industry, the Philippines is a go-to nation for outsourcing animation services. We are home to thousands of talented animators but sadly, we are not known for ideating and producing our own work. There have been less than 10 animated feature films in the entire 100-year history of Philippine cinema, and we want to continue adding to that, while also hoping that little by little, someday Filipino animators can be known as not just service providers, but creators as well. We hope you enjoy Hayop Ka! on Netflix," said Avid Liongoren. 

"I find it interesting to see animals dealing with adult human conflict in funny natural situations, the characters are real in their predicament and emotions, and each character has a unique Filipino trait that we can share to the audience," said Piolo Pascual, Executive Producer.

Z-Movie "Alive" Starring Korean Superstars Yoo Ah-in and Park Shin-hye Premieres September 8 on Netflix

Netflix, the world’s leading streaming entertainment service, confirmed the international premiere of #Alive as September 8, 2020, following its theatrical run in Korea. 

#Alive tells the story of a mysterious virus outbreak that suddenly spreads throughout modern day Seoul and rapidly grows out of control. People struggle to stay alive when the unknown infection causes victims to eat each other, turning them into zombies. 

Oh Jun-u, played by Yoo Ah-in, and Kim Yu-bin, played by Park Shin-hye, struggle to survive in an apartment complex from those infected with the virus. They are trapped alone inside their apartments without access to cellular data, Wi-Fi, text, or phone calls. Their only source of information about the outside world is the news on TV and what they can see from outside their apartment windows. 

While they are neighbors, Jun-u and Yu-bin have opposite personalities. Jun-u is a typical middle-class boy who enjoys computer games and social networking. He utilizes technology to survive. Meanwhile, Yu-bin incorporates more traditional items like camping tools and telescopes to survive. With their different specialities, the pair work together to stay alive. 

Yoo Ah-in is known for portraying diverse roles in movies and dramas including Veteran, Chicago Typewriter, Six Flying Dragons, and more. Popular actress Park Shin-hye is known for her roles in You Are Beautiful, Pinocchio, and Memories of the Alhambra. 

The sneak-peek video provides an exclusive look at Jun-u suddenly discovering the zombie outbreak spreading to his neighborhood. From the window of his home, he witnesses the horrifying pandemonium as some neighbors become zombies and some try to flee. 

#Alive, based on an original script of screenwriter Matt Naylor, is directed by IL CHO and produced by ZIP CINEMA and PERSPECTIVE PICTURES. It premieres internationally on September 8, 2020, only on Netflix.
