“LOGAN” trailer finally revealed

Leave a Comment
Following the teaser poster reveal, the trailer of Hugh Jackman’s most anticipated latest Wolverine movie entitled “Logan” has just been revealed, showing an older Logan at a time where fellow mutants no longer exist.

In an extremely intense and serious tone, the first frames of the trailer revealed a bruised trembling hand while Patrick Stewart’s Professor Charles Xavier and Hugh Jackman’s Logan converse - “Logan, what did you do?” asked Charles Xavier, for which Logan replied, “Charles, the world is not the same as it was.”

Further into the trailer, a young girl joins Logan and Professor Charles who is then revealed to have mutant powers like that of Logan. Soon, the three of them are on the run, with Logan and the young girl forced to fight the enemies trying to pin them down in a series of dizzying chase, brutal and heart-stopping scenes. Finally, “Logan’s” trailer ends with Hugh Jackman standing in the middle of a forest while the young girl approaches and holds his hand.

Directed by James Mangold, “Logan” opens in Philippine cinemas nationwide on March 1, 2017 from 20th Century Fox to be distributed by Warner Bros.

Zooey Deschanel's uniquely colorful Cinderella spin in “TROLLS”

Leave a Comment
Emmy Award, Golden Globe Award and Grammy Award nominee and Critics’ Choice Award winner Zooey Deschanel cemented her place as a mainstream presence with a handle for nuance when she re-introduced the classical leading lady to the modern audience with her old-fashioned charm in her starring roles in “500 Days of Summer” and “Yes Man”.

Lauded as timeless, vintage and ethereal, Deschanel stars and gives a new spin in her latest (voice )role as Bridget aka Lady Glittersparkles in DreamWorks Animation’s unique world of “Trolls” along with the talented Justin Timberlake, Anna Kendrick, Russell Brand, Gwen Stefani, Christopher Mintz-Plasse, Russell Brand, Zooey Deschanel, Jeffrey Tambor, Christine Baranski, James Corden, Kunal Nayyar, Ron Funches, Icona Pop, Quvenzhané Wallis and John Cleese

“Trolls” is a funny and irreverent new movie from DreamWorks Animation, which is all about happiness. Anna Kendrick stars as the voice of Poppy, the optimistic and relentlessly positive leader of the Trolls. With their trademark, rainbow-colored hair and upbeat personalities, they are the essence of joy. Only one member of the community is sad. Branch (Justin Timberlake), a fearful and over-cautious Troll, is terrified that miserable monsters called The Bergens will find them. The Bergens are only happy when they eat Trolls! The Bergens are the flip side of the Trolls. These depressed giants believe that menacing Trolls is the only viable path to their happiness.

Given the Bergens’ king’s (King Gristle Jr. voiced by Christopher Mintz-Plasse) childish ways, it’s no surprise that he is unlucky in love. But that status may change, if the Bergen scullery maid Bridget aka Lady Glittersparkles has anything to say about it. Voiced by Zooey Deschanel, Bridget is the sweetest, most kindhearted Bergen in all of Bergen Town; in fact, she may be the only kindhearted Bergen. Bridget is sensitive and soft-spoken, and harbors a crush on the king. “She’s our Cinderella,” says director Mike Mitchell.

Screenwriter Jonathan Aibel has a special affection for Bridget, a character he describes as being “a challenge to write, because when we meet her, she’s uncommunicative. So to see her grow and learn how to express herself is probably my favorite part of the movie, especially when she goes on her dream date with King Gristle.”

An entertainer in every sense of the word, Deschanel sings Lionel Richie’s ballad “Hello” that underscores her character’s touching crush on King Gristle. Additionally, Deschanel was asked to record a rap verse for a remix of Diana Ross’ “I’m Coming Out.” She explained, “I didn’t want to screw it up, but the one thing I can’t do is that (rap). It was really scary, but Justin was a great coach.”

As her big evening with Gristle unfolds, Bridget gets help from Poppy and her friends, who not only provide the maid with rainbow-colored tresses made from their own collective hair, but try and help to converse with Gristle. Hair is a defining aspect of the Trolls and their universe, and bringing its nearly supernatural powers to life fell to a specially created “Hair Task Force,” made up of hundreds of artists and technicians working only on hair effects, ensuring that this magical thing was always looking—and acting—fabulous. All that hair-raising derring-do didn’t come easily: the Hair Task Force created a total of 1.8 million strands, with Poppy taking 84,000, Branch almost 50,000—and Lady Glittersparkles (aka Bridget) taking the furry crown, using 237,375 strands, with help from Poppy and her pals, of course.

Let your hair down and let the happiness flow when “Trolls” opens November 2 in cinemas nationwide from 20thCentury Fox to be distributed by Warner Bros.

Latest brand new trailer of Game-to-Movie “ASSASSIN’S CREED”

Leave a Comment
The latest brand new trailer of “Assassin’s Creed” starring Academy Award® nominee Michael Fassbender reveals a much more dangerous world as it puts the audience in the middle of an ancient war between two age old factions - the Assassins, who fight to protect free will among the populace, and the Templars, who aspire to impose a New World Order.

Throughout history, these two groups have been fighting for the fate of humanity. In the present, the Templars are close to realizing their dream of dominion by using ancient artifacts (created by an extremely evolved First Civilization) known collectively as Pieces of Eden. Among other things, these artifacts have the power to optimize the human mind.

Based on the highly-successful and popular Ubisoft video game series, “Assassin’s Creed” sees Fassbender plays dual roles as Callum Lynch, a Death Row convict spared execution by the Templars, as well as his 15th Century ancestor, Aguilar de Nehra, a Master Assassin who fought the Spanish Inquisition in his quest to keep a sacred artifact out of Templar hands. Through a revolutionary technology that unlocks his genetic memories, Callum Lynch (Fassbender) experiences the adventures of his ancestor, Aguilar, in 15th Century Spain. Callum discovers he is descended from a mysterious secret society, the Assassins, and amasses incredible knowledge and skills to take on the oppressive and powerful Templar organization in the present day.

“Assassin’s Creed” also stars Academy Award winner Marion Cotillard (“The Dark Knight Rises,” “La Vie en Rose”), Jeremy Irons (“Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice”), Brendan Gleeson (“Harry Potter” movies) and is directed by Justin Kurzel (“Macbeth”).

Assassin’s Creed” opens in Philippine cinemas nationwide on January 8, 2017 from 20th Century Fox to be distributed by Warner Bros.


New Jollibee Chickenjoy TVC brings joy back to the Pinoy table

Leave a Comment
Today, with the wave of exciting technological innovations and new apps, people are becoming more preoccupied with their gadgets. Whether it means replying to important work emails, keeping attuned to the latest updates on social media, or fighting off and catching virtual monsters, this new normal of being glued to our screens has kept us from experiencing important and joyous face-to-face moments with family members and loved ones.

Bringing joy to the table

Jollibee, the country’s number one fast food brand, recognizes this new reality and is encouraging Filipino families to bring joy back to their tables with the best-tasting crispylicious, juicylicious, and gravylicious Chickenjoy through a new TV commercial entitled “Bunso.”

The TVC gives viewers a glimpse of a typical modern Pinoy family’s day. In the video, the youngest daughter—the adorable bunso—wants to play and spend time with her father and siblings. However, Ate and Kuya are busy updating social media accounts and playing games, while Dad is in the middle of an important work call. Watch the adorable video directly from Jollibee’s Facebook page or below:

Bunso appears to sadly wonder—through a softhearted rendition of the OPM classic “Ewan”—why it is difficult to talk to her family. “Mahirap kausapin at ‘di pa namamansin,” Bunso laments. “’Di mo ba alam, ako’y nasasaktan?”

Just when the bunso was about to feel dismayed, her face lights up as Mom enters with a bucket of Chickenjoy for the family. As soon as Mom and bunso lift the bucket’s lid, the aroma draws the rest of the family to the dining table. Gadgets are temporarily set aside and the whole family gathers around their favorite Jollibee meal for a joyful quality time together.

“Technology has allowed us to stay up-to-date with whatever’s happening all over the world,” said Kent Mariano, Jollibee Philippines AVP for Marketing. “But despite the many benefits of being online all the time, sometimes technology makes us forget the important things that are also right in front of us. That’s why we must also remember to pause once in a while and savor the joy of missing out on gadgets and devices to enjoy personal face-to-face connections with our loved ones. This is the message we hope to share in our newest Chickenjoy TVC.”

“For years, Jollibee and our best-tasting Chickenjoy have remained committed to making family bonding moments more delicious, unforgettable, and joyful,” Mariano added. “There’s no better place to start than at the dining table, the very heart of the Pinoy home.”
