This is the main question everybody is asking from Vhong Navarro during the bloggers conference of the movie "Da Possessed." Vhong became the trending topics in every news after the condo incident with Deniece Cornejo  and Cedric Lee. Therefore, everybody is concerned about his condition.

Definitely, Vhong is Vhack! "Parang walang nagbago kay Vhong. Mas lalo siyang gumaling, mas naging seryoso sa trabaho," Bb. Joyce Bernal, the director of the film shared during the conference.

"Pero siyempre, we didn't gave him special treatment na parang may pinagdadaanan siya. We treated him normaly. Nagbabatuhan kami ng biruan, lokohan, gaguhan na parang wala lang kaya ang gaan ng mood namin sa set. Masaya," the director added.

Vhong and Bb. Joyce already worked together in various blockbuster comedy films like "D' Anothers," "Bulong,"  "Mr. Suave,"  and "Agent X44." This movie is their reunion project!
"Sa 20 years celebration ng Star Cinema, di dapat mawala ang isang Vhong Navarro sa isa sa mga movie offerrings nito,"  Star Cinema's movie producer explained in an interview.

Here is the Take One behind the scene of "Da Possessed:"



And of course, a Vhong Navarro film would not be completed without a funny and nakaka-LSS soundtrack and music video. Here it goes:

 

In the movie, Vhong is paired to the sexy actress-model Solenn Heussaff. This is their very first tandem and actually, the very first movie of Solenn in Star Cinema, the movie arm of ABS-CBN, the rival of her home network GMA-7.

Joining Vhong and Solenn are the hilarious cast members namely Joey Marquez, Smokey Manoloto, Matet De Leon, Beverly Salvejo, Joy Viado, Empoy,  and John Lapus.

Co-produced by Star Cinema and Regal Films, "Da Possessed"  will be shown in different theaters nationwide this coming Black Saturday, April 19, 2014.  

For the record, "Da Possessed" is actually the second movie collaboration (in the present generation) of Star Cinema and Regal Films. The first one was the 2013 MMFF horror movie entry "Pagpag: Siyam na Buhay." Are you now more excited to see the Vhong Navarro's comeback in the big screen?! (www.tvseriescraze.blogspot.com)

Kapamilya hunk actor Joseph Marco revealed in his official Instagram account that he and co-Kapamilya stars Arjo Atayde and Alex Gonzaga will lead the remake of the ABS-CBN's hit Koreanovela "Pure Love" which is also known as "49 Days" in Korea.

Joseph posted some photos of him together with Alex and Arjo with a caption of "Taping for Pure Love." He even posted a document with a label of "Pure Love Cast Call" confirming that they were the chosen three to lead the exciting roles of the three characters we used to love.

Annaliza’s story will soon come to an end, but Andrea Brillantes’ road to superstardom has just begun especially now that she is tagged as ABS-CBN’s newest ‘Tween Princess.’

According to business unit head Ruel Bayani, “Annaliza” not only captivated the hearts of Filipinos during its ten-month run, but it also has produced Philippine television’s next big tween superstar.

“She really has a big future ahead of her in showbiz. With her looks and great acting chops, she will definitely go far. She really has the makings to be a massive star and she’s on her way to becoming one,” Bayani shared.

She may be one of the country’s most adored young stars today, but Andrea barely acknowledges her newfound fame and simply attributes it to the many people who want their photos taken with her.



“Many people want to take photos with me now. I also gained more followers on Twitter and Instagram, and I feel that more people love me,” said Andrea, who just turned eleven last Wednesday, when asked how her stature as a celebrity changed with “Annaliza.”

True enough, Andrea’s portrayal as Annaliza made her a popular household name and also earned her her first acting award when she was recognized last year as Best Child Performer at the PMPC Star Awards for Television.

With the support given to her by her fans and the management, Andrea is very thankful for the trust given to her. “I am happy and thankful that my first show lasted this long. I am a bit sad, of course, that I will no longer work with my best friend Kyline, my tatay (Zanjoe), and the rest of the cast, but that’s just how it is.”

Young as she may seem, Andrea already envisions herself carving a name for herself in the industry. She even shared how she wants to venture into directing someday.

“I want to direct a Pinoy Superman movie. I want my tatay (Zanjoe) to play the part and his leading lady will be ate Bea (Alonzo).”

“Annaliza” began airing in May 2013 and has run for almost four seasons on-air, trouncing four rival programs on GMA in nationwide ratings. It made a mark on Philippine television when it hit an all-time high national TV rating of 27.8%, a significantly high rating for a program that airs on the 6PM timeslot, and also landed third on the list of the ten most-watched programs in the country that day, according to data from Kantar Media.

In its highly anticipated finale, Annaliza (Brillantes) and her family face their biggest battle yet as they feel the wrath of Makoy (Carlo Aquino) and Stella (Kaye Abad), who lost their daughter in an attempt to kill Annaliza. How will Annaliza make it through this final ordeal?

Don’t miss the finale week of “Annaliza” weeknights before “TV Patrol” in ABS-CBN’s Primetime Bida. (www.tvseriescraze.blogspot.com)

ABS-CBN Corporation remains to be the undisputed TV network in the country as more Filipinos in both urban and rural homes watched its programs in February, hitting an average national audience share of 45%, or a 13-point lead over GMA’s 32%, based on data from Kantar Media.

Kantar Media uses a nationwide panel size of 2,609 urban and rural homes that represent 100% of the total Philippine TV viewing population, while the other ratings data supplier AGB Nielsen reportedly has only 1,980 homes based solely in urban areas that represent only 57% of the Philippine TV viewing population.

“Honesto” remains to be the most-watched program in the country in February and continues to rule weekday programming with a national TV rating of 32.6%. It is followed by “Wansapanataym” (30.3%), which is the number one program on weekends.

“TV Patrol” is still the most-watched newscast in the country with a national TV rating of 29.5% or more than double the rating of rival “24 Oras” with only 14.3%.

The country’s number one cable channel, Cinema One, is treating its viewers to “The Outrage” which is airing for the first time on Philippine television this Sunday (March 9).

“The Outrage” stars Eurasian Thai actor Mario Maurer who, with his vast range of projects done, has gained widespread popularity in the Philippines. Maurer had also recently starred in Philippine cinema in the movie “Suddenly It’s Magic,” a Star Cinema production, where he starred alongside Erich Gonzales under the wing of director Rory Quintos.

In “The Outrage,” Maurer plays a monk named Anont in a story of crime and mystery set during Thailand’s Lanna period. It details the story of a bandit who is convicted of murdering a warlord. Anont had testified during the bandit’s trial, but was unnerved by the turnout of the case. He chooses to leave the monkhood, and on his journey, he meets a woodcutter and a thief—a crossing of paths that coincidentally unravels the truth through a series of flashbacks.

It turns out that nothing was what it seemed to be, nor was anybody whom they appeared to be.

“The Outrage” is an adaptation of acclaimed director and writer Akira Kurosawa's "Rashomon," and also stars Ananda Everingham, Chermarn Boonyasak, Dom Heatrakul, Petchtai Wongkamlao, Laila Boonyasak, and Pongpat Wachibunjong.

Film festival critic Amos Tan of thisfilmfest.com said of "the Outrage" that it “features stellar art direction and cinematography.” Furthermore, he remarked that “The Outrage” contains “solid performances and an unexpected narrative that will hold your attention from the first frame to the last”.

The film also received much recognition, winning two awards in the Thailand National Film Association Awards for Best Visual Effects and Best Costume Design, with seven nominations for Best Make-up, Best Art Direction, Best Score, Best Supporting Actress, and Best Cinematography. Apart from these, the film had two nominations in the Asian Film Awards, where Mario Maurer was nominated for Best Supporting Actor and designer Noppadon Techo was nominated for Best Costume Design.

Follow Anont’s journey and watch the truth be unveiled as “The Outrage” airs on Cinema One(SkyCable channel 56) this Sunday at 8:00pm. (www.tvseriescraze.blogspot.com)
