Tarantino's "Once Upon a Time...in Hollywood" Arrives in PH This August

5:15:00 AM

They play the heroes, but reality has caught up with them. Watch the final international trailer of Once Upon a Time…in Hollywood, the 9th film by Quentin Tarantino and starring Leonardo DiCaprio, Brad Pitt and Margot Robbie.  The film opens in Philippine cinemas August 28.



Once Upon a Time... in Hollywood visits 1969 Los Angeles, where everything is changing, as TV star Rick Dalton (DiCaprio) and his longtime stunt double Cliff Booth (Pitt) make their way around an industry they hardly recognize anymore.   The ninth film from the writer-director features a large ensemble cast and multiple storylines in a tribute to the final moments of Hollywood’s golden age.

Written and Directed by Quentin Tarantino, Once Upon a Time... in Hollywood is produced by David Heyman, Shannon McIntosh and Quentin Tarantino.

With Once Upon a Time… in Hollywood, Quentin Tarantino continues to evolve and to surprise audiences. While the movie has all of the hallmarks of a Tarantino film – a wholly original story, with fresh characters, presented with bravura technique – his ninth film also breaks new ground for the writer-director. It is a character-driven story, dealing with mature issues of unfulfilled expectations that inevitably confront us all as we age. In Hollywood, this struggle is particularly dramatic, as success and failure live side by side. In Once Upon a Time…, they do so literally as well as figuratively.   Uniting two of today’s greatest stars in a first-ever pairing and recreating an entire lost era, the film is big cinema made for the big screen. A true original in a landscape of sequels and superheroes.

Set in 1969, Tarantino recreates the time and place of his formative years, when everything – the United States, the city of Los Angeles, the Hollywood star system, even the movies themselves – was at an inflection point, and no one knew where the pieces would land.  All this is not entirely dissimilar from the changes buffeting Hollywood today.

“This is a unique film in Quentin’s body of work, and it is his most emotional,” says producer David Heyman. “In a way, he’s looking back on his influences and the movies he loved, the period he was growing up in, and what helped shape him – a love letter to a bygone Hollywood. But I found the script so moving. Yes, it was funny. Yes, it was thrilling. Still, at its heart, it’s a really tender story about a friendship.” 

Once Upon a Time…In Hollywood is distributed by Columbia Pictures, local office of Sony Pictures Releasing International.  Use the hashtag #OnceUponATimeInHollywood

“Hello, Love, Goodbye”: Finding love, pursuing a career, and life happening in between

5:02:00 AM
QUEZON CITY, PHILIPPINES, August 1, 2019-- Love and career are two of the important things that most people consider in making major decisions in their lives. Most generations were asked which they prioritize and often their answers vary—but what does the younger generation get to say about this topic?



TFC asked two young overseas Filipinos to answer the question “what will you choose, love or career? Why?”

Snooky, 27, from Japan, chose career. She explains: “Love can come anytime, while you have to build your career from scratch until you reap what you sow. Also, frankly speaking, nowadays there is a bigger chance to find an ideal partner once you are financially stable. It makes me feel happier and satisfied to attain my personal goals in life first before settling down.”

On the other hand, Bianca, 28, from Canada chose love over career. “I’ll choose love because this will make me the happiest. I feel that love can give me the more genuine kind of happiness, while my career is only fulfilling the ambitious side of me. Love is a complete package even in its simplest form,” she explained.

This is the dilemma that the characters of Kathryn Bernardo and Alden Richards are facing in the Star Cinema film “Hello, Love Goodbye”, written by Carmi Raymundo and under the direction of the multi-awarded and blockbuster director Cathy Garcia-Molina.

Joy (Kathryn) and Ethan (Alden) are two overseas Filipinos in Hong Kong with different goals in life. Joy is a domestic helper who is determined to do everything to have a better life, compared to the life she had as a child. While Ethan is a bartender who is building a permanent life in Hong Kong but has always been afraid of commitments.

In the process of getting to know each other, Joy and Ethan also discover new things about themselves, which could possibly affect the plans they have with their respective lives.

“Hello, Love, Goodbye” marks the first time that two of the prime stars today from Philippines’ media giants, ABS-CBN and GMA, are working on one project that tackles the lives of the overseas Filipinos.

“I appreciate the OFW more after seeing how hard their life is,” Kathryn said about portraying the life of an overseas Filipino. “In Hong Kong, they live a fast-phased life because they need to save. This movie opened me to different things and experiences that I can say made me whole. I salute the OFWs.”

On the other hand, Alden shared a bit what the audiences will expect in watching the film. “With this movie, the audience will see the struggles and the good side of being an OFW. Also, they will see how they evolved from the usual OFW whose only concern is the welfare of their family into someone who also thinks of their self,” he said.

Also part of the film are Maymay Entrata, Jameson Blake, Joross Gamboa, Kakai Bautista, Lovely Abella, and Jeffrey Tam.

Get a glimpse on the life of the overseas Filipinos and how it has changed over the years via the film “Hello, Love, Goodbye” as it screens in the different regions on these dates: August 1 in Papua New Guinea; August 2 in Saipan and Guam; August 4 in Norway; August 8 in the Middle East, Australia, New Zealand, Singapore, and Brunei; August 9 in the U.S., Canada, and Tel Aviv, Israel; August 10 and 11 in United Kingdom; August 11 in Ireland, France, Austria, Italy, Malta, and Taiwan; August 18 in Hong Kong; August 23 in Malaysia; September 1 in Spain and Japan; September 9 in Greece; September 28 and 29 in South Korea; and coming soon in Indonesia, Myanmar, Thailand, and Vietnam.

Also catch the premiere happening on August 5 in the U.S. with Kathryn Bernardo, while it will be Kathryn Bernardo and Alden Richards who will grace the premieres in Dubai on August 9, in Abu Dhabi on August 10, and in Singapore on August 18. There will also be a special screening on August 25 in Cambodia.

About “The Nutcracker and the Four Realms”

All Clara (Mackenzie Foy) wants is a key – a one-of-a-kind key that will unlock a box that holds a priceless gift. A golden thread, presented to her at godfather Drosselmeyer’s (Morgan Freeman) annual holiday party, leads her to the coveted key—which promptly disappears into a strange and mysterious parallel world. It’s there that Clara encounters a soldier named Phillip (Jayden Fowora-Knight), a gang of mice and the regents who preside over three Realms: Land of Snowflakes, Land of Flowers and Land of Sweets. Clara and Phillip must brave the ominous Fourth Realm, home to the tyrant Mother Ginger (Helen Mirren), to retrieve Clara’s key and hopefully return harmony to the unstable world. Starring Keira Knightley as the Sugar Plum Fairy, Disney’s new holiday feature film “The Nutcracker and the Four Realms” is directed by Lasse Hallström and Joe Johnston, and inspired by E.T.A. Hoffmann’s classic tale.

Welcome to the Nightflyer: Watch the trailer to ‘Nightflyers,’ the new TV series based on the novella from the author of ‘Game of Thrones’

11:21:00 AM


Board at your own risk.

Nightflyers follows eight maverick scientists and a powerful telepath who embark on an expedition to the edge of our solar system aboard The Nightflyer − a ship with a small tightknit crew and a reclusive captain − in the hope of making contact with alien life. But when terrifying and violent events begin to take place, they start to question each other − and surviving the journey proves harder than anyone thought.



Nightflyers is based on the novella by George R. R. Martin, who also serves as an executive producer and is produced by Universal Cable Productions and co-produced by Netflix. Jeff Buhler wrote the adaptation for television and is the showrunner and executive producer. Brian Nelson, Mike Cahill, and Andrew McCarthy serve as executive producers. Gene Klein, David Bartis, and Doug Liman from Hypnotic; Alison Rosenzweig and Michael Gaeta of Gaeta Rosenzweig Films; and Lloyd Ivan Miller and Alice P. Neuhauser of Lloyd Ivan Miller Productions also serve as executive producers.

Gretchen Mol (Boardwalk Empire) is set to star as Dr. Agatha Matheson alongside Eoin Macken (The Night Shift) as Karl D’Branin, David Ajala (Fast & Furious 6) as Roy Eris, Sam Strike (EastEnders) as Thale, Maya Eshet (Teen Wolf) as Lommie, Angus Sampson (Fargo) as Rowan, Jodie Turner-Smith (The Last Ship) as Melantha Jhirl, and Brían F. O'Byrne (Million Dollar Baby) as Auggie.

Nightflyers will launch on Netflix outside of the U.S. in 2019. The season will consist of 10 episodes.

Superhero Films Get Skewered When "Teen Titans GO! To the Movies"

11:16:00 AM



When teeny Teen Titan Robin learns that the story of Batman’s greatest ally and best friend in the whole world is coming to the big screen, and it is not about him—and that Hollywood is making movies about every superhero but him—he declares, “It’s time they make one about me!”

But then he’s hit with the cold, hard truth: Hollywood only makes movies about real superheroes.  “Why don’t they take us seriously?” the boy wonders.

Maybe because a superhero has to save more than…room for dessert?

Adapted for the big screen from Cartoon Network’s “Teen Titans GO!” to be a lot bigger, a lot longer, but as cheekily irrepressible as ever, “Teen Titans GO! to the Movies” is a superhero movie for the whole family.  It is also the brainchild of the same team that generates the wildly popular half-hour series.



Director/producer Peter Rida Michail says that while the Teens—Robin, Cyborg, Starfire, Raven and Beast Boy—see themselves as superheroes, “our version of the Teen Titans are more or less outcasts from the hero world.  They’re a bunch of really silly friends having a blast just hanging out more than actually fighting crime.”

Director/writer/producer Aaron Horvath believes the Teens have a pretty good gig.  “I would say it’s better to be a sidekick than a hero,” he observes.  “There’s probably a little more humiliation involved, but a lot less pressure—you don’t get the spotlight, but nobody’s looking at you when the timer on the doomsday clock is counting down.  That’s for Batman to worry about!”

The Teens’ sub-superhero status, combined with their inherent impertinence, inspired the filmmakers to have the Titans skewer their own genre in their own genre film.  Writer/producer Michael Jelenic states, “In the movie, we subvert the superhero world in a lot of ways, poking fun at all the things fans expect out of those movies and all the things we’ve seen before.  So, it’s a superhero movie that’s not your typical superhero movie; it turns everything on its head, but it’s all in good fun and we stay true to ourselves, which we know is important to fans of the show.”

Putting it all together, “Teen Titans GO! to the Movies” is a toe-tapping, time-traveling, road-tripping adventure that takes our hopeful heroes from their native Jump City to the glitz and glamour of Tinsel Town.



About “Teen Titans GO! to the Movies”

When the Teen Titans go to the big screen, they go big!  “Teen Titans GO! to the Movies” finds our egocentric Super Heroes in their first feature film extravaganza—a fresh, gleefully clever, kid-appropriately crass and tongue-in-cheek play on the superhero genre, complete with musical numbers.

It seems to the Teens that all the major superheroes out there are starring in their own movies—everyone but the Teen Titans, that is!  But de facto leader Robin is determined to remedy the situation, and be seen as a star instead of a sidekick.  If only they could get the hottest Hollywood film director to notice them.  With a few madcap ideas and a song in their heart, the Teen Titans head to Tinsel Town, certain to pull off their dream.  But when the group is radically misdirected by a seriously Super-Villain and his maniacal plan to take over the Earth, things really go awry.  The team finds their friendship and their fighting spirit failing, putting the very fate of the Teen Titans themselves on the line!

The first-ever big-screen version of DC Entertainment and Cartoon Network’s animated TV show stars Greg Cipes (TV’s “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles”) as Beast Boy, Scott Menville (TV’s “Spider-Man”) as Robin, Khary Payton (“The Walking Dead”) as Cyborg, Tara Strong (the “My Little Pony” franchise) as Raven, and Hynden Walch (TV’s “Adventure Time with Finn & Jake”) as Starfire, reprising their roles from the series.

Will Arnett (“The LEGO® Batman Movie”) and Kristen Bell (“Frozen”) also lend their voices and, in guest roles, Superman super fan and Oscar winner Nicolas Cage (“Leaving Las Vegas”) portrays the Man of Steel; singer/songwriter Halsey lends her voice to Wonder Woman; and rapper/-singer Lil’ Yachty plays Green Lantern.

“Teen Titans GO! to the Movies” is distributed worldwide by Warner Bros. Pictures, a Warner Bros. Entertainment Company.
