‘My 2 Mommies’ earns P34.5 million on its first five days

Regal Films, Inc.’s Mother’s Day offering, My 2 Mommies, continues to sweep success one after the other.

Just five days since it opened in cinemas last May 9, the movie has already accumulated P34.5 million, rendering it a blockbuster hit.

Regal Film’s latest film project initially showed signs that it would be a potential box-office hit when it strongly registered P5.5 million on its opening day.

But its strong ticket sales is just an icing on the cake.

The Cinema Evaluation Board (CEB) has given My 2 Mommies a “Grade A,” the highest grade given to a film. The Grade A means a film has met the CEB’s standards and criteria and is ultimately considered a quality project.

Moreso, film critics and reviewers raved about the movie, praising the cast member’s superb performances and its story hat tickles the funny bone and tugs at the heart.

My 2 Mommies starts Paolo Ballesteros, Solenn Heussaff, Joem Bascon, Marcus Cabais, Dianne Medina, Mich Liggayu and the one and only Miss Maricel Soriano.

About My 2 Mommies

This comedy-drama movie tells the story of Manu (Paolo), a discreet gay, who seems to have everything in life: career, family and love-life. But the rug was swept off his feet when Monica (Solenn), a woman from Manu’s past, shows up and confess that they have a child together. Manu is forced to come to terms with being a parent to a young child, Tristan, who desires to know his “father” for who he truly is.

Directed by Eric Quizon, My 2 Mommies is now showing in cinemas nationwide.

Janella Salvador, Jameson Blake paired for the first time in ‘So Connected’

Janella Salvador and Jameson Blake agree in saying that their team-up in the upcoming movie, So Connected, is significant for both of them.
For one, this is their first time to work together.

For his part, Jameson explains that he has always been vocal in his past interviews that Janella is her dream leading lady.

“Before, people would always ask me, ‘If you would work with a leading lady, who would you choose?’ I’m like, ‘Maybe Janella, I think maybe we’d be a good match for a movie.’

“I’m like, ‘Someday baka may movie kami ni Janella. Maybe it would come true.’ I actually dreamt about it,” the Hashtags member recounts.

“I never really expected it would come true,” he enthuses about his granted wish.

The budding actor also points out why So Connected is a huge milestone in his showbiz career: What could be better than finally getting your first big role and be paired with your dream leading lady?

“Ito so far ang pinakamalaking role ko as a bida sa mainstream. Kasi nag-indie [movie] ako, so ito mainstream na ito. It’s like a big step in my life. It’s really special for me. Kasi I always wanted to work with Janella. and I’m happy it actually came true,” he says with excitement.

Though it is their first team-up, Jameson is happy to hear that the staff and crew of the production team is optimismic that his onscreen partnership with Janella shows a lot of promise.

“They believe that we could actually pull off the movie. It’s a great experience,” he beams.

“They really like the movie,” referring to the production team.

Meanwhile, the team up is a breath of fresh air for Janella. She only has good words for Jameson.

“He’s very nice, actually. I have no problem working with him at all because sobrang light lang ng aura niya, sobrang good vibes lang, and masaya siya to work with,” she commends.

Coming from a solid love team in the previous Regal Entertainment movie, Janella admits that she had to adjust in working with a new leading man in the person of Jameson.

However, she welcomes this change because this will only help her to a better actress.

“Syempre, may adjustment. Medyo after a few projects with the same leading man, di ako sanay na bago, pero it’s always nice to try something new. I think it’s good growth din as an actress,” she articulates.

Janella’s role in the movie is Trisha, a self-supporting young woman, who hopes to help her family.

Popularly known for portraying teeny bopper roles, Janella finally gets the chance to portray an out-of-the-box character.

“Nag-enjoy ako dito sa role na ‘to kasi nga it’s something different for me, kasi halos lahat ng roles na ginawa ko before maarte o kaya younger. Ito, hindi lang mature. Mas jologs talaga yung character ko. Sobrang jologs niya,” she giggles. “And it’s so fun to do it kasi in real life, may makulit side din talaga ako. So nalabas ko sa character na ito.”

Jameson, on the other hand, portrays Karter, a video editor for a web channel who finds himself falling for a complete stranger (Trisha) after he gets a glimpse of her life in videos and photos uploaded in the online world.

Just like Janella, Jameson also feels connected to his role.

“May mga similarities kami; I’m shy and quiet minsan. I just want to be on the computer a lot. I’m just like him; his attitude and the way how he approaches different kinds of situation. I didn’t have much adjustments to it,” describes the actor.
