Illumination, who brought audiences Despicable Me and the biggest animated hits of 2013 and 2015, Despicable Me 2 and Minions, continues the adventures of Gru, Lucy, their adorable daughters—Margo, Edith and Agnes—and the Minions in Despicable Me 3.

Parker voices the role of villain Balthazar Bratt, a former child star who’s grown up to become obsessed with the character he played in the ‘80s, and proves to be Gru’s most formidable nemesis to date.

David Beckham makes movie debut via ‘King Arthur: Legend of the Sword’

A scar-faced, broken-nosed David Beckham appears in a cameo in Warner Bros. Pictures’ King Arthur: Legend of the Sword, in Philippine cinemas May 17, 2017.

The superstar ex-footballer plays one of King Vortigern’s (Jude Law) Blacklegs standing guard over the proceedings around the mystical, powerful sword Excalibur.

While Beckham remains new to the world of acting, he humbly accepted the probability of criticism over his role saying, “I am very aware that many sportsmen and other celebrities have turned their hand to acting and failed. I know that it is a tough profession, where you need a huge amount of skill and discipline, and I wouldn’t want to push myself forward too soon, without learning more about it, and doing a lot more practice.”

It’s no secret that Beckham and British director Guy Ritchie are great friends. The pair has worked together on commercials that promoted the sporting legend’s product lines for H&M and Haig Club whiskey, while Beckham also had a cameo in Ritchie’s last film, The Man From U.N.C.L.E.

Directed by Guy Ritchie, King Arthur: Legend of the Swoerd stars Charlie Hunnam, Astrid Bergès-Frisbey, Oscar nominee Djimon Hounsou, Aidan Gillen, Oscar nominee Jude Law, and Eric Bana. Ritchie directs the film from a screenplay by Joby Harold and Guy Ritchie & Lionel Wigram, story by Joby Harold.

The bold new story introduces a streetwise young Arthur who runs the back alleys of Londonium with his gang, unaware of the life he was born for until he grasps hold of the sword Excalibur—and with it, his future. Instantly challenged by the power of Excalibur, Arthur is forced to make some hard choices. Throwing in with the Resistance and a mysterious young woman named Guinevere, he must learn to master the sword, face down his demons and unite the people to defeat the tyrant Vortigern, who stole his crown and murdered his parents, and become King.

Opening across the Philippines on May 17, 2017, King Arthur: Legend of the Sword is distributed by Warner Bros. Pictures, a Warner Bros. Entertainment Company.

It’s Optimus vs Bumblebee in new ‘Transformers: The Last Knight’ poster

Paramount Pictures has just launched the new Transformers: The Last Knight one-sheet showing Optimus Prime and Bumblebee in combat mode, with the ominous tagline, “For one world to live, the other must die.”

The fifth instalment of the massively successful Transformers franchise is coming to Philippine theaters on June 21, 2017.

In the film, when all seems lost, a few brave souls can save everything we’ve ever known.

Directed by Michael Bay, The Last Knight shatters the core myths of the Transformers franchise, and redefines what it means to be a hero. Humans and Transformers are at war, Optimus Prime is gone. The key to saving our future lies buried in the secrets of the past, in the hidden history of Transformers on Earth. Saving our world falls upon the shoulders of an unlikely alliance: Cade Yeager (Mark Wahlberg); Bumblebee; an English Lord (Sir Anthony Hopkins); and an Oxford Professor (Laura Haddock).

There comes a moment in everyone’s life when we are called upon to make a difference. In Transformers: The Last Knight, the hunted will become heroes. Heroes will become villains. Only one world will survive: theirs, or ours.

Transformers: The Last Knight is distributed by United International Pictures through Columbia Pictures.

Crime-free society eyed in futuristic action thriller ‘Hunting the Phantom’

The attempt to eliminate crime and establish global peace has resulted in the abolishment of basic human freedoms in the futuristic action thriller “Hunting the Phantom.”

The latest non-stop action film “Hunting the Phantom” takes place in the near future. The great invention of a global corporation, code-named “Phantom”, ensures the crime eradication and security in the world. But this is only a visible side of the “Phantom”: the corporation’s sinister plan is hidden in establishing total control over the people’s mind. A hacker in Japan receives a strange message: “The Phantom controls us all. Save me to save yourself.” Several hackers transmit this message to each other, until it reaches Kazakhstan. None of the hackers understand the meaning behind this inexplicable message; only a mysterious stranger from Kazakhstan appears to know something.

Their aim is to change the march of history, to turn society into obedient puppets who will never know that their mind is under control. The “Phantom” gradually breaks people’s lives, but nobody can understand what’s happening as long as the “Phantom” destroys the life of two lovers – Timur and Keira. She is charged with murder, and he must break the law to save her life.

“Hunting the Phantom” is directed by Marina Kunarova and stars Kristanna Loken (“Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines”) and Sanzhar Madiyev (“Guardians”) – now showing in Philippine cinemas from CrystalSky Multimedia.
