Edge of Tomorrow (Film Review)

Being one of Hollywood's most celebrated actors, Tom Cruise has appeared in quite a number of action films lately. The guy is ultimately invincible --and bulletproof. But have anyone actually remember him dying onscreen? This is what 'Edge of Tomorrow' pokes fun of, a celebration of Tom Cruise getting killed a lot, --and what a joy seeing that guy die repeatedly.

X-Men: Days of Future Past (Film Review)

Okay Brett Ratner, you can now step aside. Bryan Singer, well technically everyone we all love from the original X-Men trilogy and "First Class" are back in this crowded, superhero extravaganza. That is basically how I can describe 'X-Men: Days of Future Past', and I think we can now breath again smoothly because it literally trashes every single one of the many non-sense events from "The Last Stand" and change for something better. This "X-Men" saga has been on a bumpy ride --there might be a few misses and jumps, but "Days of Future Past" started on a new drive, and there's a far more interesting and better road beyond that.

Godzilla 2014 (Film Review)

After too much hype and speculations, "Godzilla" is now making his big comeback after 16 years. And boy does he deliver. Everything in this film screams "awesomeness" and while the creature canonly be seen at least 28 minutes, Director Gareth Edwards manages to grip audiences with its exceptional action sequences --and a lot of mayhem. Definitely the most fitting word for this film is 'EPIC', because it just is.

Maleficent (Film Review)

It has been clearly known how messed up Disney has been dealing with it's live action incarnation of classic stories. 'Oz, The Great and Powerful', 'Alice in wonderland', do you even remember how bad are these? 'John Carter', anyone?? So, Disney definitely has to put these films on hold to shame, because now there doing another one, a live-action re-imagining of 'Sleeping Beauty' --with a little of twitches here and there. In fact, this film is coming off the perspective of Disney's iconic villain 'Maleficent'. Because princesses are beyond boring.

Rio 2 (Film Review)

'Rio 2' is one of the great examples of how an animated sequel should be, which is rarely made. Retaining the vibrant look of the visuals and musical numbers, while adding effective humor and new characters in between. Okay, I was a bit skeptical of how this movie'll turn out. Sequels from animated movies these days often come pretty bad and lame, but Blue Sky Studios sure learned their lessons with their recent Ice Age movies.The film slightly got to the lame-sequel direction with its final half, but all-in: this is pack of joy and delight. Kids will definitely enjoy this, big time.

Odds Stacked Against You? Call 'The Equalizer'

From Antoine Fuqua, director of “Training Day” and “Olympus Has Fallen” comes Columbia Pictures' new action thriller “The Equalizer” starring Denzel Washington.

In the film, Washington plays McCall, a man who believes he has put his mysterious past behind him to lead a quiet life in peace. But when McCall meets Teri (Chloë Grace Moretz), a young girl under the control of ultra-violent Russian gangsters, he can’t stand idly by – he has to help her. Armed with hidden skills that allow him to serve vengeance against anyone who would brutalize the helpless, McCall comes out of his self-imposed retirement and finds his desire for justice reawakened. If someone has a problem, if the odds are stacked against them, if they have nowhere else to turn, McCall will help. He is The Equalizer.

Based on the television series created by Michael Sloan and Richard Lindheim, “The Equalizer” also stars Marton Csokas, Chloë Grace Moretz, David Harbour, with Bill Pullman and Melissa Leo. Film is written by Richard Wenk.

For director Antoine Fuqua – who re-teams with Denzel Washington after directing the actor to his Oscar®-winning performance in “Training Day” – McCall shares some of the archetypical heroic traits that have been passed down. “I saw this movie as a throwback, like the westerns that Sergio Leone made,” he explains. “There’s an antihero, in a struggle, reluctant and ashamed to pick up his gun... but when he gets a chance to help other people, he does. He uses his skills for that.”
The film takes its title from the 1980s television series and shares its central premise – a man, highly trained, who can “equalize” the odds when they are stacked against the helpless. Though the filmmakers took only the premise and title from the original show, Blumenthal says that the premise is one that has only become more relevant. “The word ‘equalizer’ is a very strong, powerful word,” he notes. “A lot of people believe that there’s a lot of imbalance in the world, so the idea of creating a balance – equalizing something – is very meaningful. If anything, I think that title means more now, in 2014, than it did in the 1980s. People can get behind this kind of hero: a man who does heroic acts for the people who need them the most.”

In seeking out a director, Washington was excited to be re-teaming with Fuqua. After their experience together on “Training Day,” Fuqua says, it was clear that “The Equalizer” lent itself to a good match of actor and director. “Part of what I discovered in `Training Day' is that I can read something on the page that sounds like an action piece, and I know that Denzel will see the acting in that – he can take an action beat and create great drama, as if it’s a dialogue scene,” says Fuqua. “He’s unpredictable, in the best way possible – he’s in his world, and you’re a fly on the wall, to capture it, if you can be smart enough to know when to continue in the scene.”

Similarly, Washington felt great confidence in his director. “He’s very talented,” says the actor. “We sent him the material and he responded – we sat down and he had tons of ideas – and it was a done deal.” Later, on set, that confidence paid off. “Antoine had the vision for the film – he was doing close work with specialized cameras, all of that stuff. But I never worried about any of that. The camera is Antoine’s area of expertise – I don’t have to worry about that. I just worry about the acting,” he smiles.
“We had a rhythm and an understanding,” concludes Fuqua. “There were times when we didn’t need to talk; we both knew where each other was going.”

Opening across the Philippines on October 01, 2014, “The Equalizer” is distributed by Columbia Pictures, local office of Sony Pictures Releasing International.

Theron In Rare Comedic Role In 'A Million Ways To Die In The West'

Oscar-winner Charlize Theron (“Snow White and the Huntsman”) stars in Universal Pictures' new comedy “A Million Ways to Die in the West” which will be shown exclusively at Ayala Malls Cinemas nationwide starting Sept 3.

In the film, after sheep farmer Albert (Seth MacFarlane) backs out of a gunfight, his fickle girlfriend leaves him for another man. When a mysterious and beautiful woman named Anna (Theron) rides into town, she helps him find his courage and they begin to fall in love. But when her husband (Liam Neeson), a notorious outlaw, arrives seeking revenge, the farmer must put his newfound courage to the test.

For their leading lady, writer-director-star MacFarlane and his team loved the idea of having Charlize Theron take on the role of Anna. From the director's first meeting with her, he knew she was the perfect fit. He states: "I love it when an actor comes in with a very strong pre-existing point of view about what they want, and it shows on screen. With Charlize, from the first time we discussed the role, she got what this was. It's like she was wired into my brain. She has a great presence, and I knew that she would bring this character to life in a powerful way."

While Theron has been more recognized for her dramatic work, the Academy Award-winning actress had been eyeing a new genre to push herself as a performer. She shares: "I've been interested in comedy for a while, but it's been tricky because audiences know me so well doing something very different. In fact, what also interests me is odd comedy. Those are very rare. The combination of this script and Seth directing was a slam dunk for me. I started begging instantly...I closed the script and started begging."
Theron explains the reason she felt a kinship with Anna: "She is the character that I have fallen in love with the fastest. We have a lot of similar traits, and I felt like I understood her straight from the beginning. Even though she hates the West, she is not jaded or cynical."

Working with MacFarlane felt like a breath of fresh air to Theron. She commends: "Seth makes it odd, because that's just his thing. It feels original, and it doesn't feel regurgitated. Actors say that all the time, but I really feel like this is something unique. There is something about the film that feels like a throwback to the '70s."

In fact, as both Theron and MacFarlane were stepping out of their professional comfort zones, they were initially a little nervous to work together. Producer Jason Clark explains: "Charlize joined us for this read-through. Seth was incredibly nervous because Charlize is an Oscar-winning actress. She came in and was as nervous working with him because comedy is something that she hasn't had a lot of experience with. That instantly brought a terrific chemistry to the relationship."
Producer Scott Stuber knew from the moment he watched them interact that Theron had nailed it. He offers: "Charlize is obviously beautiful and an immensely talented actor who's proven herself in dramatic roles. So when we heard she wanted to try her hand at comedy, we jumped at the chance to cast her. Luckily for us, she does comedy just as well as drama, if not better. People will really be blown away by her."

“A Million Ways to Die in the West” is distributed by United International Pictures through Columbia Pictures.

'Rurouni Kenshin: Kyoto Inferno' Grosses P42.61-M In 5 Days, Opens At No. 1

MANILA, August 25, 2014 – Legendary samurai Kenshin Himura returned to a fiery, red-hot welcome as Warner Bros.' sword-fight epic “Rurouni Kenshin: Kyoto Inferno” topped the Philippine box-office with an infernal P42.6-million in five days (Aug 20-24). This was announced today by Francis Soliven, General Manager of Warner Bros. (F.E.), Inc. which locally distributed the film.

“Kyoto Inferno's” smash opening figure has already surpassed the entire lifetime gross of the first “Rurouni Kenshin” which earned P40.4-M in its overall run 2012. The record for All-Time Biggest Opening Weekend for a Japanese film was also captured by “Kyoto Inferno” from its predecessor.

“This is a phenomenal bow for `Rurouni Kenshin: Kyoto Inferno,' one that surely exceeded even our aggressive estimates,” says Soliven. “We'd like to thank the loyal fans of the franchise for their unwavering support and offer our congratulations to director Keishi Otomo and the cast led by Takeru Satoh, Emi Takei and Munetaka Aoki. The aforementioned talents graciously helped promote the film when they visited here for the Asian Premiere three weeks ago. We have no doubt that their visit enabled us to launch the film in the best way possible.”

Indeed, the unprecedented Asian Premiere of “Kyoto Inferno” in Manila generated a firestorm of goodwill among fans and industry stakeholders, not to mention invaluable media presence. The result is an unbelievable first-day gross of P7.34-M last August 20. The fans have clearly spoken, and on the second day, the film collected over P10-M in ticket sales. Boosted by unanimous rave reviews from critics and excellent word-of-mouth, the film was on its way to a sensational opening weekend.
Posting the biggest receipts was SM Megamall with P2.39-M over five days, while Trinoma was second with P2.16-M, and SM Cebu at third with P1.62-M.

In the Top Ten Theaters are SM Mall of Asia (P1.57-M), Glorietta 4 (P1.41-M), SM North EDSA (P1.38-M), Ayala Cebu (P1.30-M), Greenbelt 3 (P1.23-M), Eastwood (P 866,850) and Gateway (P 864,056).

Completing the Top Twenty are Alabang Town Center (P 841,091), Greenhills (P 774,768), Shangri-la (P 743,634), Power Plant (P 717,510), SM Aura (P 655,044), Centrio Cagayan de Oro (P 643,260), Robinsons Ermita (P 617,200), Robinsons Magnolia (P 608,664), Bonifacio High Street (P 597,550) and Market! Market! (P 579,084).

Based on the Kyoto arc of the popular manga series written & illustrated by Nobuhiro Watsuki, the “Rurouni Kenshin” sequels follow the story of Kenshin Himura (Takeru Satoh), a legendary swordsman in the wars accompanying the turbulent fall of Japan's Shogunate in the 19th century. Once feared as 'Battosai the Killer', he has adopted a peaceful life since the arrival of the 'new age'.

But Makoto Shishio (Tatsuya Fujiwara), the 'Shadow Killer' and successor to Kenshin's position as the deadly assassin, has since then been scheming in the Kyoto underworld, raising an army of disaffected former samurais with the aim of overthrowing the new regime.

Agreeing to a request by the new government to defeat Shishio, Kenshin leaves his beloved ones in Tokyo and sets out for Kyoto. He and Shishio are a match in skill and in wits, but their aims are opposite. Can Kenshin preserve the nation without breaking his vow that he will kill no more...?

The films also star Emi Takei (Kaoru Kamiya), Munetaka Aoki (Sanosuke Sagara), Kaito Oyagi (Yahiko Myojin), Yu Aoi (Megumi Takani), Yosuke Eguchi (Hajime Saito), Min Tanaka (Nenji Kashiwazaki), Tao Tsuchiya (Misao Makimachi), Ryunosuke Kamiki (Soujiro Seta), Maryjun Takahashi (Yumi Komagata) and Tatsuya Fujiwara (Makoto Shishio).

The first sequel, “Rurouni Kenshin: Kyoto Inferno” is now playing across the Philippines, while “Rurouni Kenshin: The Legend Ends”opens on Sept. 24, 2014. Both films are distributed by Warner Bros. Pictures.

Teaser Poster and Trailer Arrives For 'Rurouni Kenshin: The Legend Ends'

Kenshin Himura is washed ashore and found by a mysterious man holding a sword in the teaser poster of Warner Bros. Pictures' “Rurouni Kenshin: The Legend Ends,” the final chapter to director Keishi Otomo's blockbuster trilogy, “Rurouni Kenshin.”
The second installment, “Rurouni Kenshin: Kyoto Inferno” is now playing to capacity crowds in Philippine theaters, and is trending to open at No.1 for the weekend box office.

The hotly anticipated first trailer for the movie was also released, which can be viewed after the jump.
Asked if “The Legend Ends” will be the same as “Kyoto Inferno,” director Keishi Otomo replies, “The theme of Kenshin’s atonement for the many people he’s killed does not change. A man who lives in atonement, and a man who does not, must inevitably do battle. But I want Kenshin to be falling apart. Kenshin doesn’t face Shishio as a straight-down-the-line champion of justice. He gets confused; his certainties are shaken.”

Based on the Kyoto arc of the popular manga series written & illustrated by Nobuhiro Watsuki, the “Rurouni Kenshin” sequels follow the story of Kenshin Himura (Takeru Satoh), a legendary swordsman in the wars accompanying the turbulent fall of Japan's Shogunate in the 19th century.

'A Million Ways To Die In The West' Exclusive At Ayala Malls Cinemas Soon

Universal Pictures' new comedy “A Million Ways to Die in the West” starring Ted McFarlane, Charlize Theron, Amanda Seyfried, Liam Neeson and Neil Patrick Harris will be shown exclusively at Ayala Malls Cinemas nationwide starting September 10, 2014.

Seth McFarlane (“Ted,” TV's “Family Guy”) once again stretches the boundaries of comedy and propriety as writer, producer, director of and actor in “A Million Ways to Die in the West.” He tells the tale and plays the lead in the story of Albert Stark, a soft man in hard times who is trying to figure out how to escape this godforsaken frontier that seems to be trying to kill him—and everyone else in it—at every turn. A sheep farmer whose fickle girlfriend, Louise (Amanda Seyfried), leaves him when he backs out of a gunfight, Albert feels like a chump.

Adding to Albert's distress and feelings of inadequacy, Louise takes up with the town's most successful businessman, arrogant moustachery owner Foy (Neil Patrick Harris). And what Albert can't dream of offering in terms of financial stability and facial hirsuteness, Foy has in spades.

But when a mysterious and beautiful gunslinger named Anna (Charlize Theron) rides into town, she helps Albert begin to find his courage and they start to fall in unexpected love.
Nothing comes easy in the bitterly unforgiving Old West, and further trouble ensues when Anna's husband, Clinch Leatherwood (Liam Neeson)—a notorious outlaw whose name strikes fear into the hearts of the citizenry— arrives seeking revenge on the man whom he thinks has made a dishonest woman of Anna. Reluctantly, Albert must now put his newfound courage to the test in a one-man-left-standing gunfight that will earn him Anna's hand and long-denied respect in the Wild West...or another unmarked grave forgotten in the annals of history.

Joining Albert in his quest are his best friend, Edward (Giovanni Ribisi), the unfailingly nice and extraordinarily naive town shoe repairman, and Ruth (Sarah Silverman), Edward's girlfriend who is just as chaste with him as she is whorish with her brothel clients.

Directed by MacFarlane from a screenplay that he wrote with Alec Sulkin & Wellesley Wild, “A Million Ways to Die in the West” also co-stars a comedic lineup of MacFarlane favorites including Ralph Garman as Dan, one of the more colorful Old Stump locals, and Alex Borstein as Millie, the madam of the whorehouse who can't quite put her finger on her best employee's oddly chaste relationship with Edward.

Christopher Hagen and Jean Effrion come aboard the production as Albert's grizzled parents, George and Elsie, who are similarly trying to avoid getting killed for merely existing in this day and age. Evan Jones portrays Lewis, a particularly vile member of Clinch's gang.
“A Million Ways to Die in the West” is distributed by United International Pictures through Columbia Pictures.

Paul Rudd Prepares For A Heist In First 'Ant-Man' Photo; Filming Begins With New Confirmed Cast

Marvel Studios began principal photography today in San Francisco, California, on its newest Super Hero franchise Marvel's "Ant-Man." The film brings one of Marvel comics' original founding members of The Avengers into the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The production also shoots on location in Atlanta, Georgia, which serves as the base for the film's production.

[UPDATE: Marvel releases the first official photo of Paul Rudd in front of the San Francisco Bridge. Yes, that bridge from 'Vertigo' wherein John saves Madeleine. It's pretty interesting, considering that they're pushing the film as a heist movie, and Paul Rudd is shown holding a bag on what may it seem like he was preparing for a big/...small? heist.]
Set for release in the United States on July 17, 2015, the film is directed by Peyton Reed ("Bring it On," "The Break-Up") and stars Paul Rudd ("I Love You Man," "Role Models") as Scott Lang aka Ant-Man, and Michael Douglas ("Behind The Candelabra," "Wall Street") as his mentor Dr. Hank Pym and Evangeline Lilly ("The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug," "Lost") as Hope Van Dyne, daughter of Hank Pym.

The film also includes outstanding additional cast including Corey Stoll ("House of Cards," "The Bourne Legacy"), Bobby Cannavale ("Danny Collins," "Annie," "HBO's "The Long Play"), Michael Pena ("End of Watch," "American Hustle"), Abby Ryder Fortson ("Togetherness"), Judy Greer ("13 Going on 30," "Dawn of the Planet of the Apes"), David Dastmalchian ("The Dark Knight," "Prisoners"), Wood Harris ("Remember the Titans," "The Wire"), John Slattery ("Mad Men," Marvel's "Iron Man 2") and Gregg Turkington ("The Comedy," "On Cinema") and multi-hyphenate T.I. ("American Gangster," "Takers").

Based on the Marvel comic character first published in 1962, Marvel's "Ant-Man" continues the lineage of epic big-screen adventures chronicled in Marvel's "Iron Man," "The Incredible Hulk," "Iron Man 2," "Thor," "Captain America: The First Avenger," "Marvel's The Avengers," "Iron Man 3," "Thor: The Dark World," "Captain America: The Winter Soldier," "Guardians of the Galaxy" and the upcoming Marvel's "Avengers: Age of Ultron."
Armed with the astonishing ability to shrink in scale but increase in strength, con-man Scott Lang (Paul Rudd) must embrace his inner-hero and help his mentor, Dr. Hank Pym (Michael Douglas), protect the secret behind his spectacular Ant-Man suit from a new generation of towering threats. Against seemingly insurmountable obstacles, Pym and Lang must plan and pull off a heist that will save the world.
Marvel's "Ant-Man" is produced by Marvel Studios' president, Kevin Feige, with Louis D'Esposito, Alan Fine, Victoria Alonso, Michael Grillo and Stan Lee serving as executive producers.

Director Peyton Reed's creative team also includes Oscar-winning cinematographer Russell Carpenter ("Titanic," "21"), production designer Sheppard Frankel ("Identity Thief," "Horrible Bosses") costume designer Sammy Sheldon Differ ("X-Men: First Class," "Kick Ass"), visual effects supervisor Jake Morrison (Marvel's "Thor: The Dark World," "The Lord of the Rings: Two Towers"), stunt coordinator Jeff Habberstad (Marvel's "Iron Man 3," "X-Men: Days of Future Past") and six-time Oscar- nominee, special effects supervisor Dan Sudik ("Captain America: The Winter Soldier," "Marvel's The Avengers"). The editors include Dan Lebental, ACE (Marvel's "Thor: The Dark World," Marvel's "Iron Man") and Colby Parker Jr. ("Lone Survivor," "Hancock").

Marvel Studios’ upcoming release schedule includes Marvel’s “Avengers: Age of Ultron” on May 1, 2015, Marvel’s “Captain America 3” on May 6, 2016, and Marvel’s “Guardians of the Galaxy 2,” on July 28, 2017.

Jamie Blackley, Out to Steal Hearts As The Rebel Rocker In 'If I Stay'

British actor Jamie Blackley (“Snow White and the Huntsman”) stars as Adam, the unlikely rocker who can’t resist the shy girl he hears playing the cello one day at school, in New Line Cinema's “If I Stay,” director R.J. Cutler’s adaptation of the New York Times best-selling novel by Gayle Forman.

In “If I Stay,” Mia Hall (Chloe Grace Moretz) thought the hardest decision she would ever face would be whether to pursue her musical dreams at Juilliard or follow a different path to be with the love of her life, Adam (Blackley). But what should have been a carefree family drive changes everything in an instant, and now her own life hangs in the balance. Caught between life and death for one revealing day, Mia has only one decision left, which will not only decide her future but her ultimate fate.
Blackley notes, “It’s such a great story. These two people find each other because they share the same passion for music, and their relationship is nuanced and complicated and really appealed to me. But then in the blink of an eye everything changes without warning. Contemplating whether you’re ever going to see someone again and be able to say everything you thought you’d always have time to say to them is quite intense.”

Cutler says, “When Jamie sang for us he blew us away and when he and Chloë read together we all had tears in our eyes. We all felt the same way; we had our guy.”
Producer Alison Greenspan adds, “I knew he had made his big break in ‘Spring Awakening’ in London, which is vocally rigorous, but listening to him sing and watching him interact in character with Chloë was incredible—the electricity in the room was palpable.”

Blackley couldn’t resist stepping into the boots of the up-and-coming musician—and onto a stage behind a microphone and guitar. “I thought it would be nice to be a rock star for a bit,” he smiles.

Cutler says, “Adam is talented beyond his years and going places and I think Jamie is, too. He’s an incredible actor and really puts a hundred percent into it. We were lucky he walked in that door.”
Greenspan also thinks they were fortunate. “Women like men who are a combination of tough and sensitive. Jamie is the perfect blend of good looks and beautiful emotions. He immediately became Adam.”
Blackley and Moretz shared a mutual professional admiration from the start. “It was such a pleasure doing our scenes because Jamie’s a brilliant actor. Our relationship felt organic and natural,” says Moretz.
Blackley, who reveals he had been a fan of Moretz’s for some time, remarks, “It doesn’t hurt that we just get on well, and laughed a lot. It was cool to actually work with Chloë.”

Opening across the Philippines on September 3, 2014, “If I Stay” is distributed by Warner Bros. Pictures, a Warner Entertainment Company.
