Paulo Avelino co-produces latest film ‘Ngayon Kaya’

Screen heartthrob Paulo Avelino not only stars in his latest movie, he is also the co-producer of the project.

In “Ngayon Kaya,” one of the eight entries of the 2020 Summer Metro Manila Film Festival (2020 Summer MMFF), Paulo plays the role of Harold — a shy college student from the province who develops a close bond and a secret love for his friend AM, a rich city girl who is passionate about her dreams played by Janine Gutierrez. Because of their contrasting personalities—Harold is disillusioned and AM is idealistic—and complications in their personal lives, the two never get past the “more than friends but less than lovers” stage and eventually separate. Now reunited after five years, AM and Harold spend fleeting hours wandering around their old haunts and wondering about their old selves, making Harold’s next-day flight the biggest “what if” of their lives.

Paulo’s own production outfit WASD Films is co-executive producer of the movie with T-Rex Entertainment. “Ngayon Kaya” is directed by Prime Cruz and written by Jen Chuaunsu, the tandem that also brought to the screen films such as “Sleepless,” “Ang Manananggal sa Unit 23B” and “Isa Pa with Feelings.”

Paulo was motivated to accept the movie because the theme is very close to his heart. “The role is very unique. It’s my first time playing a guy who is hoping for love,” he says of his character. “What Harold went through is something very similar to something I experienced in the past,” he reveals.

The actor-producer is also credited for thinking of the movie’s title. He shares how his suggestion ended up being picked. “Nasa set kami n’on at nag-iisip kami ng title,” he relates. “Naisip ko lang bilang miyembro ng cast at isa sa mga nagtratrabaho sa pelikula, paano kung ‘Ngayon Kaya’? And dami kasing pwedeng ipahiwatig sa dalawang salitang ‘yun. At lahat ng mga ibig sabihin makikita mo sa storya ng pelikula. Ang tagal kong nilaban ang title. Yung suggestion ko rin ang final choice.”

Paulo hopes that viewers will appreciate and ponder on the message of “Ngayon Kaya” and is excited to share this latest endeavor with his fans and followers.  He says, “Aside from the movie being beautifully shot and lovingly written, it is very relatable. I’m sure everyone has a lot of ‘what ifs’ in their lives.”

“Ngayon Kaya” also stars Alwyn Uytingco, John James Uy, Donna Cariaga, Shara Dizon and Ms. Rio Locsin. For updates, follow the social media accounts of T-Rex Entertainment on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.

‘A Quiet Place Part 2’ director John Krasinski on the horror sequel

In 2018, John Krasinski’s A Quiet Place turned silence into the building blocks of fright and forged from the horror-thriller genre a modern fable of family love, communication and survival. With its mix of relentless tension and layered storytelling about a tight-knit clan fending off an immensely destructive, sound-attuned alien force, the film became a startling hit and cultural phenomenon.

Now comes the story’s unnerving second chapter, which picks up right where the Abbott family left off. But A Quiet Place Part II also heads to new places as events hurtle past the fragile sanctuary of the “sand path” the Abbotts created in order to prevail in a reality where even a single footstep could be deadly—and into a world of infinite peril beyond. From the opening moments of the film, the family is on the run, beyond any semblance of security and searching for refuge in a town gone mad with fear. In a time when empathy and connection have nearly vanished from the world, the Abbotts strive not only to protect each other from the threat of sound but to find hope in the terrifying hush around them.

The idea that the Abbotts might continue their journey into the vast, unexplored territory beyond their home came as a surprise even to Krasinski. He never imagined he would be in the position to contemplate a sequel when he began working on A Quiet Place, not knowing it would touch such a deep nerve in the culture. He’s also no fan of half-hearted follow-ups. Yet, when Krasinski had an idea he felt could truly push the storytelling—an idea true to the original film’s characters and conception, yet also full of fresh creative challenges—he was lit with the same passion for it as the first time around.

The most important thing to Krasinski was that if he were to extend the story, A Quiet Place Part II had to be, like its predecessor, more than a visceral sensory experience. It had to also drive the family’s emotional journey forward—this time, towards both independence and community.

As he had originally, Krasinski let his thirst to explore the unknown take the lead. That meant imagining all that might lie beyond the cocoon of quiet the Abbotts managed to craft for their family. Where would they go, and what would they find out there and within themselves, if they had no choice but to venture beyond the security of the sand path?

L-r, Director John Krasinski, Noah Jupe and Emily Blunt on the set of “A Quiet Place II.”

“There’s so much more to experience beyond the farm,” note Krasinski. “But even though we’re greatly expanding the world and the scale of the story, the intimacy comes from the fact that the rules remain the same. It was very creatively exciting for us to have this chance to create much bigger set pieces that still feel true to the story and to the Abbott family’s inner experiences.”

Setting the Abbotts adrift from their routines into a land overtaken by chaos meant pulling the rug out from under what was already the most treacherous of situations. But that in turn would only further lay bare the core beauty of families: their resilience even in the face of the gravest doubts.

“If you don’t have the safety devices of the sand path and the lights, everything is even more unpredictable,” describes Krasinski. “Each step you take is uncertain. Scares can come from anywhere. When you don’t know how you’re going to survive the next moment, you’re likely to make a mistake. And when you make a mistake, our infamous creatures are around a lot more than you thought.”

‘Sonic the Hedgehog’ review: More than spectacular video game adaptation

Jeff Fowler successfully made a spectacular adaptation of a well-loved classic video game.

Based on the global blockbuster video game franchise from Sega, Sonic The Hedgehog tells the story of the world’s speediest hedgehog as he embraces his new home on Earth. The film follows the (mis)adventures of Sonic as he navigates the complexities of life on Earth with his newfound — human — best friend Tom Wachowski (James Marsden). Sonic and Tom join forces to try and stop the villainous Dr. Robotnik (Jim Carrey) from capturing Sonic and using his immense powers for world domination.

The film is what fans is hoping for; it is a gift indeed. It’s the classic Sonic in a film we all want to see. Despite having lapses in the beginning of its production, with regards to the design of Sonic’s eyes, the film still made it in rushing for a better edit in order to deliver a fun-filled family adventure movie. The backlash from fans was great enough for the production team led by director Jeff Fowler to push back the film’s release date several months and go back to the drawing board, literally, to redesign a more game-accurate version of the character. The end result is amazing in every way: from visual effects to spectacular interactions of the characters. James Marsden, Jim Carrey, Ben Schwartz, and all the other actors put all their best performances to tie this whole film together.

The film is lighthearted and the plot itself is very basic: it will let you feel like you’re in Sonic’s world. You could feel empathy for the characters. Sonic can be considered a classic SEGA character, and if you are a Sonic fan, this is definitely for you. It is filled with nostalgic references, from its key visuals to its soundtrack, even to the poses Sonic makes. There is a lot of effort in creating this one and it looks great for general audiences. It knows exactly what type of genre it is and owns up to it.

While having occasional self-referential humor, it does not shy away from being genuine and taking itself a bit seriously. The best part of the movie, inevitably, is Sonic himself. Ben Schwartz did a pretty good job in voicing the blue hedgehog, managing to highlight the character’s boundless energy and enthusiasm without making him annoying at all.

The action is suitably fast-paced, and even when it slows down, the chemistry between James Marsden and Sonic is strong enough not to drag the story. As for the animation and the character design, let’s just say that this is truly a kid-friendly Sonic the Hedgehog adaptation. For the adult viewers, we hope to see more characters from the SEGA universe if it ever come to exist. If it comes to that, it’s one thing to put another hype on.

To summarize, Jeff Fowler creatively put effort to this one. Without any doubt this is a special love letter to Sonic fans. Take your kids, go with your friends, or see it alone—any way, you’re going to find yourself having a supersonic time. Jim Carrey’s performance as Dr. Robotnik was strikingly amazing. If you grew up with Jim Carrey films, you will totally dig his comeback here!

Sonic The Hedgehog is probably the fun, entertaining, and spectacular film you would ever see that has much love to its source material. You’d hope that they would make a sequel after that shocking mid-credit scene. Definitely worth seeing in IMAX with the whole family!


Directed by Jeff Fowler starring Ben Schwartz, James Marsden, Jim Carrey, Tika Sumpter, and Adam Pally.

5 things to remember about horror film ‘A Quiet Place Part II’

With just two weeks before Paramount Pictures’ A Quiet Place Part II arrives in the Philippines on March 18, audiences are well advised to know the following five things about the eagerly anticipated sequel.

1. A Family Reunited

Following the huge success of the first film, A Quiet Place Part II reunites the filmmaking partnership that spawned it, John Krasinski again writing and directing his real-life wife Emily Blunt. Despite the first film ending on a cliff-hanger, a sequel was never planned but the idea of how people were surviving and how the world could go on were questions that Krasinski could not shake. “I never wanted to go outside the farm on the first one, but it was always in the back of my head. And then to see the reaction from the first movie, and that people had that same question, was really inspiring to me. Because it was something that I felt very much I wanted to explore” says Krasinski. This led to the spark of an idea that took him on a journey to create the expanded world in A Quiet Place Part II.

2. Day 1

In the first film, audiences met the Abbott family on ‘Day 89’ after the alien invasion, which they never saw play out on screen. A Quiet Place Part II opens with a massive-scale flashback to the terrifying bloodbath of ‘Day 1’, and audiences will finally have their question answered. While A Quiet Place left people on the edge of their seats asking many questions, Part II provides context and gives a glimpse into the world before silence and the journey after the horrifying end in the first movie.

3. Day 474

A Quiet Place Part came loaded with iconic imagery, unrelenting suspense and a shotgun-clicking cliff hanger that left audiences gasping for more. “The first movie was absolutely a metaphor for parenthood,” Krasinski says. Where A Quiet Place was really about the lengths a parent would go to for their child, Part II is about the children themselves. “I love that idea,” Krasinski says, “that this little girl has the answer, and she can’t live with herself knowing that she’s only protecting this small group of people [her family], when she could be protecting the entire world.” Much of the focus of A Quiet Place Part II centers on the family coping with grief and pain while still searching for a way to survive.

L-r, Regan (Millicent Simmonds), Marcus (Noah Jupe) and Evelyn (Emily Blunt) brave the unknown in “A Quiet Place Part II.”

4. Beyond the path

Where the first film was set almost entirely in one location, A Quiet Place Part II uncovers a new path. The family’s search for other survivors takes them on a perilous journey. With a new-born baby in a box with a dwindling oxygen supply, the family forges across new, threatening locations. “If the first [movie] was intimate, almost like a homegrown western, this is more of a travelling western,” says Krasinski, who cites the unforgiving landscapes of No Country For Old Men, True Grit and There Will Be Blood as inspiration. “It feels more epic.”

5. The threat has evolved

It was never the horror that drew Krasinski into the world of A Quiet Place; rather, it was the feelings that the concept stirred deep within him. A Quiet Place Part II is no different with the introduction of mysterious new characters played by Cillian Murphy and Djimon Hounsou, who may offer a safe haven or pose a threat. “What [Murphy and Hounsou’s characters] represent the most strongly is that there are other people out there,” says Krasinski. “‘How did they survive and how do they survive?’ becomes the question and the story for the second one.”

Paramount Pictures presents in association with Michael Bay, a Platinum Dunes / Sunday Night production, a John Krasinski film “A Quiet Place Part II.”  Based on characters created by Bryan Woods & Scott Beck, written and directed by John Krasinski.

A Quiet Place Part II stars Emily Blunt, Cillian Murphy, Millicent Simmonds, Noah Jupe and Djimon Hounsou.

Taiwan’s beloved top-grosser ‘More Than Blue’ hits PH cinemas

One of Taiwan’s highest-grossing films, MORE THAN BLUE, is here to make you fall in love and cry your heart out.

MORE THAN BLUE is about Chang a.k.a K (Jasper Liu), a terminally-ill guy and his best friend, Song a.k.a Cream (Ivy Chen). They have been friends for many years, and have been living at the same house without any romantic relations. But in reality, K has been in love with Cream since high school. Not wanting Cream to be lonely when he dies, K decides to help her find Mr. Right. But can K bear to see the love of his life happy with another man? Is this what Cream really wants? To be happy with another man without her best friend?

MORE THAN BLUE is a remake of the 2009 South Korean film of the same title. It was first released in Taiwan on November 2018 and earned NT$32 million on the first three days. Nine days since its release, the film passed the NT$100 million mark, breaking the box office speed record of the hit Taiwanese film “Our Times”, which broke the NT$100 million in 10 days. By the 11th day of release, the film already made NT$135 million and became the highest-grossing Taiwanese film of 2018. 

The movie also received a warm response in the 23rd Busan International Film Festival held last October 2018. The film’s 5,000 tickets in the festival were sold out within five minutes, and Jasper Liu and Ivy Chen won the “Face of Asia” award.

The film’s main cast, Jasper Liu and Ivy Chen are both Taiwan’s in-demand and award-wining actors. 33 year-old Jasper Liu started out as a model before he ventured into acting in 2011. Since then, he has become one of Taiwan’s most prominent actors. Last year, on his birthday last August 12, Jasper released the full version of the theme song of MORE THAN BLUE entitled A Kind of Sorrow and marked his debut as a solo singer.

Ivy Chen started her career in 2002, appearing in many commercials and music videos. In 2010, she received her first Best Actress award at the 12th Taipei Awards for her performance in the romantic comedy film “Hear Me”. Since then, she has received several nominations for her performances in different movies.

In MORE THAN BLUE, Jasper Liu and Ivy Chen had a perfect chemistry that made the movie more heartwarming and heartbreaking at the same time.

WATCH: First ‘Candyman’ trailer offers glimpse to fresh horror remake

Dare to say his name. Watch the first trailer of the horror thriller Candyman which has just been launched by Universal Pictures.

This June, Oscar® winner Jordan Peele unleashes a fresh take on the blood-chilling urban legend that your friend’s older sibling probably told you about at a sleepover: Candyman. Rising filmmaker Nia DaCosta (Little Woods) directs this contemporary incarnation of the cult classic.  

For as long as residents can remember, the housing projects of Chicago’s Cabrini Green neighborhood were terrorized by a word-of-mouth ghost story about a supernatural killer with a hook for a hand, easily summoned by those daring to repeat his name five times into a mirror. In present day, a decade after the last of the Cabrini towers were torn down, visual artist Anthony McCoy (Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, Aquaman, HBO’s Watchmen) and his girlfriend, gallery director Brianna Cartwright (Teyonah Parris, If Beale Street Could Talk), move into a luxury loft condo in Cabrini, now gentrified beyond recognition and inhabited by upwardly mobile millennials.

With Anthony’s painting career on the brink of stalling, a chance encounter with a Cabrini Green old-timer (Colman Domingo, HBO’s Euphoria) exposes Anthony to the tragically horrific nature of the true story behind Candyman. Anxious to maintain his status in the Chicago art world, Anthony begins to explore these macabre details in his studio as fresh grist for paintings, unknowingly opening a door to a complex past that unravels his own sanity and unleashes a terrifyingly viral wave of violence that puts him on a collision course with destiny.

From Universal Pictures and Metro Goldwyn Mayer Pictures, in association with BRON Creative, and Jordan Peele and Win Rosenfeld’s Monkeypaw Productions, Candyman is directed by DaCosta, and is produced by Ian Cooper (Us), Rosenfeld and Peele. The screenplay is by Peele & Rosenfeld and DaCosta. The film is based on the 1992 film Candyman, written by Bernard Rose, and the short story “The Forbidden” by Clive Barker. The film’s executive producers are David Kern, Aaron L. Gilbert and Jason Cloth.

In Philppine cinemas June 10, Candyman is distributed by United International Pictures through Columbia Pictures. #CandymanMovie
