CARS 2 - New Characters!

Disney/Pixar reveals the new characters in the upcoming animated adventure “Cars 2,” the highly anticipated sequel to 2006’s blockbuster “Cars.” 

Check out the newest cars to hit the screen!

Shu Todoroki is a Le Motor Prototype racer representing Japan and bearing #7 in the World Grand Prix. Shu was raised at the base of the active Mount Asama volcano in Japan, and soon became a champion on the Suzuka Circuit. His sleek design sports a fiery red Ka-Riu dragon, which Shu borrowed from Japanese legend because he relates to the small, yet fierce nature of the dragon.
Acer has always felt like an outcast in the car world. The beat-up green AMC Pacer joined forces with fellow “lemon” cars as henchmen for the devious Professor Z, whose clandestine mission is to wreak havoc at the highly visible World Grand Prix.  
Known as the “World’s Greatest Rally Car,” #6 Raoul ÇaRoule was born in Alsace, France. A restless soul, Raoul joined the famous ‘Cirque du Voiture’ French circus where he learned Gymkhana – a graceful, drift-filled motorsport that taught him pinpoint timing and an unparalleled ability to navigate tricky courses with ease. He’s the first car to ever win nine consecutive rallies.
World Grand Prix contender Carla Veloso hails from Rio de Janiero, Brazil. The sweet but powerful Latin diva can dance the night away at “Car-nival,” but spends most of her time on the racetrack. After setting a new track record at the local Interlagos circuit, she was drafted to join the 24-hour endurance racing team in Europe, where she posted a consistent series of podium finishes.  
Finn McMissile is a master British spy. Though charming and eloquent, it’s his stealth maneuvering, intelligence and years in the field that enable him to thwart unexpected attacks from bad guys, making quick daredevil escapes.. Finn’s design is sleek and timeless, but he’s also prepared for any tricky situation with an arsenal of ultra-cool gadgets and weaponry, including front and rear grappling hooks, a missile launcher, deployable magnetic explosives and a holographic disguise emitter.
Grem is a dented, rusty orange AMC Gremlin. After years of being dismissed for his design, even being called a “lemon,” Grem has a big chip on his fender that has led him to the underworld of international espionage.
Holley Shiftwell is a beautiful young British desk agent, turned spy-in-training who’s stationed in Tokyo. Well-educated and sharp, she knows every trick in the book—or rather, she relies on every trick in the spy manual. She’s armed with the latest state-of-the-art spy equipment imaginable, from hidden cameras and concealed weapons to a telescoping utility arm and a holographic pop-up display. Holley is a highly motivated agent, but is fresh out of the academy, so her experience is based on lessons learned in school rather than real-life situations.
“Cars 2” will hit the track on June 24, 2011, and will be presented in Disney Digital 3D™ and IMAX® 3D in select theaters.

Never Let Me Go Movie Review

Kathy, Tommy and Ruth live in a world and a time that feel familiar to us, but are not quite like anything we know. They spend their childhood at Hailsham, a seemingly idyllic English boarding school. When they leave the shelter of the school and the terrible truth of their fate is revealed to them, they must also confront the deep feelings of love, jealousy and betrayal that threaten to pull them apart.

For starters, Never Let Me Go is a British dystopian film based from the novel with the same name by Kazuo Ishiguro. I find the movie very compelling and profound, in such a way that emotions are all throughout the movie. The narration of Kathy H. would make you emphatize with her because of what happened to her friends and her life. Very deep movie, I suggest though that you read the background of the movie first. Carey, Keira and Andrew performed really great, they weaved you in the movie as if they want you there with them. Director Mark Romanek would want viewers to be reminded of what is important in life, like love, behavior and friendship. After watching, I feel that this is all conveyed. The script is romantic is touching at the same time, given Kathy H.'s narration. The injection of science in the movie made the story more interesting and the ending devastatingly beautiful.

We all complete. Maybe none of us really understand what we've lived through, or feel we've had enough time. - Kathy H.

Never Let Me Go opens exclusively in Ayala Cinemas on March 2. Distributed by Fox Searchlight Pictures.

Just Go With It Movie Review

A plastic surgeon, romancing a much younger schoolteacher, enlists his loyal assistant to pretend to be his soon to be ex-wife, in order to cover up a careless lie. When more lies backfire, the assistant's kids become involved, and everyone heads off for a weekend in Hawaii that will change all their lives.

Angel and I were checking the cinema for movies we haven't watched and luckily, Just Go With it is now showing. It was such a funny romantic comedy, perfect for couples. The movie is very light and very enjoyable. We had a good time laughing throughout some humorous parts of the film. Adam Sandler has never failed his viewers with his humor and wit. Jennifer Aniston is still as flawless as a teen. I'm a big fan of the two and seeing them in one film is great! The movie involved almost everybody, because of the theme of the movie - a careless lie that build up to a web of lie.  

Just Go with It is directed by Dennis Dugan and distributed by Columbia TriStar Motion Picture Grp. Now showing in your fave theaters!

PS. We didn't see Rob Schneider in the movie. If anyone saw him, let us know! 

Yuoy! Project Headshot Clinic supports OPM!

An expression, a song, an art. 

I had the chance to join Project Headshot Clinic (HSC) at Ronac Art Center in Ortigas and was very excited to take part in the photoshoot . This February, HSC is in support of Original Filipino Music. Youy! is the latest song by the independent Hip Hop group Q-York and at the same time an expression created by DJ Flavamatiks of Q-York. You might be wodering, how did he come up with such a word? He grew up in Queens, New York with the familiar expression, Yo!  When he got here in the Philippines, he learned the expression "yun" and "hoy" and he thought of combining the two and he came up with YUOY, an expression that can take on a multitude of meanings! 

DJ Flavamatikz
 The expression of creativity, something cool, unique and freedom is now what we call OPM, Original Filipino Music. It's an expression of so many things, about oneself, one's culture and value.

I, together with some bloggers and well known music celebrities had our picture taken as part of this advocacy. We support our very own original filipino music. We were able to meet some music celebrities that joined us in supporting the headshot. After the headshot, Q-york will be making a music video of Yuoy! and hopefully will be out after around two weeks.

DJ Flavamatikz, Cleo, Paloma, DJ Jerome, KL
Champ Lui Pio 
RnB Prince Jay-R

Krista Kleiner (Jay-R's girlfriend)
Philippine All Star was there too to join in Q-yorks music video.


Other music and non music celebrities who supported the project were, Alex Crisano, Amber, and John Avila. It was great to see non music celebrities too supporting this project by devoting their time to join the headshot.

We all have our own dreams. We make it. If we just believe in our talents and in our self. Original Filipino Music has been there ever since, I hope that thru projects like this (HSC) we support our own kind of music, our own brand of songs, our own pride. 

Kudos and Thanks to Jason for letting me join this project (this is my first time!) and to Niccolo Cosme, it was great meeting you in person. I hope to join more headshots soon ^_^

DWAYNE JOHNSON seeks justice in FASTER

After 10 years in prison, Driver (Johnson) has a singular focus - to avenge the murder of his brother during the botched bank robbery that led to his imprisonment. Now a free man with a deadly to-do list in hand, he’s finally on his mission…but with two men on his trail – a veteran cop (Thornton) just days from retirement, and a young egocentric hitman (Jackson-Cohen) with a flair for the art of killing and a newfound worthy opponent. The hunter is also the hunted. It’s a do or die race to the list’s finish as the mystery surrounding his brother’s murder deepens, and new details emerge along the way hinting that Driver’s list may be incomplete.

It was a fateful day a few years ago when writer/producer Tony Gayton approached his brother, and "Faster" co-writer, Joe Gayton with the thread of an idea. “I remember imagining a guy in prison on the day of his release getting a speech from the warden then just breaking into a sprint out of the prison gates and going straight to kill someone,” recalls Tony Gayton. “I liked the idea of this introduction where you have no idea who this guy is. He turns out to be the hero out to get revenge for his brother’s murder but he could very well have turned out to be the bad guy.” On that day, the character that would come to be known simply as ‘Driver’ was born.

“(Driver) is like a shark – he has a clear mission,” notes Joe Gayton who also serves as Executive Producer on the film. “It was apparent at this early stage that his determination would provide for a true, high-octane adventure.” As the screenplay evolved, what emerged was not just an action film but also a character study and exploration into the minds of three men - the other two main characters known simply by the monikers ‘Cop’ and ‘Killer.’ But Driver’s mission was at the story’s core and finding the right actor to portray him would be the first target. 

Pursuing Dwayne Johnson's character in Columbia Pictures' new action-thriller “Faster” are Oscar-winning actor Billy Bob Thornton and relative newcomer Oliver Jackson-Cohen who play nameless antagonists known only as `Cop' and `Killer,' respectively.

Billy Bob Thornton was attracted to Cop’s deeply-rooted shades of gray and signed on. “It’s always fun to play someone who’s a bit ambiguous,” says Thornton. “Those characters are usually a lot more interesting to portray and more entertaining for the audience to watch.”

“Cop is a guy whose life has really gone the wrong way,” Thornton continues. “He doesn’t have much. In his feeble way he is trying to scratch his way back to some kind of semblance of normalcy but it’s not easy.” Director George Tillman, Jr. knew that Thornton’s immense talent and commitment would bring a lot to the project. “Aside from his ability to play Cop’s vulnerability and flaws, Billy Bob is a talented writer/director so he is a great collaborator on all aspects of how to make a scene better.” “Billy Bob is absolutely perfect for the role of Cop,” adds Johnson. “He is very talented, intriguing and extremely passionate, especially when he finds a character he loves.”

Also hot on Driver’s trail is a professional assassin, Killer, who has an insatiable appetite for the extreme. Killer is an intense character driven by an innate insecurity and an unquenchable thirst for approval. When first sparring with Driver and experiencing his total lack of fear, Killer is shaken to the core. The encounter sparks something within the character that triggers an obsession with besting and essentially killing Driver. “Killer is truly a fascinating character,” says producer Robert Teitel. “While his main objective is to get Driver, he also admires and respects him. He wants Driver to acknowledge him, and becomes increasingly angry that Driver doesn’t give him respect. Throughout the film, you witness him progressively going off the deep end.”

Opening soon across the Philippines, “Faster” is distributed by Columbia Pictures, local office of Sony Pictures Releasing International.

UNKNOWN Movie Review

Dr. Martin Harris awakens after a car accident in Berlin to discover that his wife suddenly doesn't recognize him and another man has assumed his identity. Ignored by disbelieving authorities and hunted by mysterious assassins, he finds himself alone, tired and on the run. Aided by an unlikely ally, Martin plunges headlong into a deadly mystery that will force him to question his sanity, his identity, and just how far he's willing to go to uncover the truth.  

What would you do if someone took your identity in the world? How far will you go to take back everything that's yours? Liam Neeson went on almost about anything just to uncovered the truth about his identity in UNKNOWN.

The dilemma of the movie is centered on Liam Neeson not knowing his real identity and finding it out for himself despite the obstructions along the way. The movie is based on the novel by Didier van Cauwelaert. I like the way the story races from the why to the how questions. The movie make you really think about what's gonna happen next. The ending is so unexpected too. Liam Neeson has been a favorite because of his movie Taken, I just can't forget that movie. He is just perfect for the role. The two ladies is also an asset of the movie. The action thriller movie is packed not only with car racing scenes but also with puzzling scene and situation, you and your friends can argue with.

UNKNOWN is now showing. Directed by Jaume Collet-Serra and distributed by Warner Bros.

Black Swan Movie Review

Nina is a featured dancer in the New York City Ballet who finds herself locked in a web of competitive intrigue with a new rival at the company .

Black Swan is not your typical Natalie Portman movie, I repeat, Black Swan is not your typical Natalie Portman movie. The beginning of the film already shows how dark the movie is. But you will be excited to weave in with the story as this psychological thriller shows you what psycotics are capable of doing with their symptoms. The plot takes you to the world of ballet, shows you the good and bad side of it too. The director brilliantly thought of how to show us a disturbing yet very powerful emotion and passion a person can take. I have never seen Natalie Portman with a character like this before, she is brilliant and really into her character. I can only imagine the preparation she's gone into both physically and emotionally for the role. She did very very well. Even Mila Kankunis, it was so natural for her to play Lily, effortless. Black Swan overall has earned a high rating from me, minus the sensual girl-to-girl scenes. 

Now Showing Black Swan, in your fave theatres. Directed by Darren Aronofsky and distributed by Fox Searchlight Pictures.

Columbia Pictures announced yesterday that the title of the next Spider-Man film will be "The Amazing Spider-Man".

The film, which is now in production and is being shot entirely in 3D, will be released on July 3, 2012. The film stars Andrew Garfield, Emma Stone, Rhys Ifans, Denis Leary, Campbell Scott, Irrfan Khan, Martin Sheen, and Sally Field. 

The studio simultaneously released a photo of Andrew Garfield as Spider-Man, the first shot of Garfield in the famous full mask and suit.

The film is directed by Marc Webb from a screenplay by James Vanderbilt and Alvin Sargent and Steve Kloves based on the Marvel Comic Book by Stan Lee and Steve Ditko. Laura Ziskin, Avi Arad, and Matt Tolmach are producing the Marvel Entertainment production for Columbia Pictures. The executive producers are Stan Lee, Kevin Feige, and Michael Grillo. The film’s official website is http://www.TheAmazingSpiderMan-movie.com.

Making Lies then Just Go With It

Columbia Pictures' new romantic comedy "Just Go With It", pairs up Adam Sandler and Jennifer Aniston. In the film, a plastic surgeon (Sandler), romancing a much younger schoolteacher, enlists his loyal assistant (Aniston) to pretend to be his soon to be ex-wife, in order to cover up a careless lie. 

 Jennifer Aniston pretends to be Adam Sandler's wife, Katherine.  

How does a single mom like Katherine, trying to get by and provide for her two kids, get roped into Danny’s outrageous scheme? “She’s just exhausted by him,” says Aniston. “She feels she has to help him save himself from his own web of lies, even though she doesn’t approve. When she’s in the middle of it, you can see her thinking, ‘How did I get on board with this?’” 

 Adam Sandler plays Danny, the surgeon who created a web of lies.

 At the center of “Just Go With It” is an everyday guy who has let a careless lie get away from him. “At the beginning of the movie, my character, Danny, was going to get married, but he gets his heart broken,” says Adam Sandler. “The night of his heartbreak he happens to have the ring on and a young lady is nice to him, because she thinks he’s married and thinks he’s harmless and won’t do anything that other guys were trying to do. A light goes off in his head.”

Supermodel Brooklyn Decker – also known as wife of tennis player Andy Roddick – makes her big screen acting debut opposite Adam Sandler and Jennifer Aniston. It might have been intimidating to take on such a key role for her first film, but Decker couldn’t have asked for a better set. “I’m the new kid on the block, and I’m surrounded by these amazing people, but they were all very encouraging and made the set a lighthearted place.  Everyone was so talented – everyone was funny – it was really an opportunity for me to challenge myself under the best circumstances.”

“Every lie has a domino effect,” says director Dennis Dugan.   

Opening across the Philippines on Feb. 16, “Just Go With It” is distributed by Columbia Pictures, local office of Sony Pictures Releasing International.

The Mystery of the UNKNOWN

From Jaume Collet-Serra, the director of the critically acclaimed thriller “Orphan,” comes Warner Bros.' suspense-filled mystery “Unknown” starring Liam Neeson, Diane Kruger and January Jones.

In the film, Dr. Martin Harris (Neeson) awakens after a car accident in Berlin to discover that his wife (January Jones) suddenly doesn’t recognize him and another man (Aidan Quinn) has assumed his identity.  Ignored by disbelieving authorities and hunted by mysterious assassins, he finds himself alone, tired, and on the run.  Aided by an unlikely ally (Kruger), Martin plunges headlong into a deadly mystery that will force him to question his sanity, his identity, and just how far he’s willing to go to uncover the truth.
Director Collet-Serra recalls the concept that intrigued him in the early version of the "Unknown" script by Oliver Butcher & Stephen Cornwell (based on the novel Out of My Head by Didier Van Cauwaleart) - was that of someone waking up one day and realizing that he's been completely replaced in the world. 

Liam Neeson plays Martin Harris, the botanist who was replaced by another person in the movie. Together with Liam are two brilliant ladies in the film that helped the movie unravel the mystery.

January Jones, who earned Golden Globe and Emmy Award nominations in the category of Best Actress in Drama Series plays Liz Harris, wife of Liam Neeson. After the accident, when Liam found her, she is with another Martin Harris. 

What drawn Jones to the movie was the unique qualities of the story and the enigmatic way her character was written.

“This was something I hadn’t read before; it was so interesting and intricate,” “It reminded me of those old spy movies, with a sense of danger and intrigue, but also a hint of glamour to it.”.

   The German-born actress, Diane Kruger, stars as the Bosnina refugee cab driver  who becomes embroiled in intrigue  when her cab plunges off a bridge and she saves the life of Liam Neeson. 

Diane, like Liam and January likes the script of the movie so much. 
 “It’s really a movie about identity, about what makes us who we are.  Is it our ID?  Is it where we come from?  Is it our objectives?  Really, the movie is an exploration of these ideas; each character has certain things to say about that.  “All the clues are there, sprinkled throughout the script,”
 Opening across the Philippines on Feb. 16, “Unknown” will be distributed by Warner Bros. Pictures, a Warner Bros. Entertainment Company.


For years, there have been documented cases of UFO sightings around the world – Buenos Aires, Seoul, France, Germany, China. But in 2011, what were once just sightings will become a terrifying reality when Earth is attacked by unknown forces, in Columbia Pictures' new sci-fi action-thriller “World Invasion: Battle Los Angeles.”

 Los Angeles will become the last stand for mankind in a battle no one expected. It's up to Marine staff sergeant (Aaron Eckhart) and his new platoon to draw a line in the sand as they take on an enemy unlike any they've ever encountered before. 

Director Jonathan Liebesman shares, " I grew up on these types of movies, it's not an alien movie that happens to have soldiers. It's a war movie with aliens."

Opening soon across the Philippines, “World Invasion: Battle Los Angeles” is distributed by Columbia Pictures, local office of Sony Pictures Releasing International.
