Joining Gadot in the international cast are Chris Pine, Robin Wright, Danny Huston, David Thewlis, Connie Nielsen, Elena Anaya, Ewen Bremner, Lucy Davis, Lisa Loven Kongsli, Eugene Brave Rock and Saïd Taghmaoui.

Before she was Wonder Woman, she was Diana, princess of the Amazons, raised on a sheltered island paradise and trained to be an unconquerable warrior. When an American pilot crashes on their shores and tells of a massive conflict raging in the outside world, Diana leaves her home, convinced she can stop the threat. Fighting alongside man in a war to end all wars, Diana will discover her full powers…and her true destiny.

Patty Jenkins directed the film from a screenplay by Allan Heinberg, story by Zack Snyder & Allan Heinberg and Jason Fuchs, based on characters from DC. Wonder Woman was created by William Moulton Marston.

Diana is set apart from most comic book superheroes by her gender, but it’s her approach to justice that I believe really makes her unique,” Gal Gadot claims. “She not only wants to rid the world of evil by taking out the bad guys, she also wants to encourage men and women to be the best human beings they can be, and she does this through love, hope and grace.”

Patty Jenkins agrees, further stating, “If only we could all see the world the way Diana does. She sees the great darkness, but also looks beyond that to what mankind is capable of: great beauty. She also has the powers of a god, a heart filled with compassion, and we wanted to give her a rich and layered and fun story to tell that everyone can connect with. It’s just a great adventure that I hope fans—old and new—will love!”

Opening across the Philippines on Thursday, June 01, “Wonder Woman” is distributed worldwide by Warner Bros. Pictures, a Warner Bros. Entertainment Company.

The Undead and Her Prey: Meet “The Mummy” Characters

A badass female mummy, a down-on-his-his-luck soldier of fortune and and engimatic doctor lead the mysterious characters in Universal Pictures’ new action-adventure The Mummy (in Philippine cinemas on June 7. 2017).

Nick Morton (Tom Cruise) is a soldier of fortune who plunders conflict sites for timeless artifacts…ones he sells to the highest bidder. When Nick and his No. 2 (Chris Vail) are attacked by insurgents in the Middle East, in the ensuing battle, they accidentally unearth a tomb of an Egyptian pharaoh they come to know as Ahmanet. Nick is not simply the one responsible for setting Ahmanet free, he’s fulfilling an ordained destiny he couldn’t have possibly imagined. Now, he is the only one who can stop her ascension to a global ruler who will enslave humanity.

MUM-TCruise01.png

Ahmanet (Sofia Boutella). Centuries ago, Ahmanet was raised as a fearless warrior and heir to her father’s throne. She was destined to be the first female pharaoh, but when the king finally fathered a son, Ahmanet was cast aside. Driven mad by betrayal, she was entombed for eternity by the very people who swore loyalty to her. Her fate? Erasure from history. Accidentally awoken by Nick Morton, this original and extraordinarily powerful monster sets out to reclaim her stolen kingdom and ascend to her rightful place as pharaoh. With her evolving powers, the strange and seductive Ahmanet forges an unbreakable connection with Nick, and in so doing, intertwines their destinies.

MUM-SBoutella01.jpg

Jenny Halsey (Annabelle Wallis) is a British officer of Cultural Heritage, who is enlisted by Nick to unearth the sarcophagus for transport. The Egyptologist’s own mother was long certain that there was a female pharaoh who’d been erased from history. Now, Jenny has finally found the princess she heard of only in myth and legend. When Jenny, Nick and Vail rappel down to an antechamber unearthed by human war, they unleash Princess Ahmanet, accidentally setting off a series of otherworldly phenomena.

MUM-AWallis01.jpg

The enigmatic Dr. Henry Jekyll (Russell Crowe) oversees Prodigium, a secret organization with a mandate to recognize, examine, contain and destroy evil in our world. A scholarly English gentlemen grounded in the modern day, he not only protects the world from monsters, he protects monsters from the world. Is Jekyll a friend or foe? Like all our principal characters, it depends upon your perspective, and their end game…

MUM-RCrowe01.jpg

Chris Vail (Jake Johnson). Although Vail likes to think of himself as a “liberator of precious antiques,” others prefer the term “modern-day grave robber.” While Nick is into the adventure as much as he is the adrenaline rush, Vail has no qualms about admitting he’s only in it for the money. Vail and Nick have been partners in crime for years, but nothing could prepare them for the evil they have awakened.

MUM-JJohnson01.jpg

Col. Greenway (Courtney B. Vance). A career military man tasked with ensuring U.S. military operations in the Middle East go by the book, Greenway embodies “steadfast.” When he discovers the chaos Nick and Vail have caused, he hauls them in for questioning. Once Ahmanet rises, however, the colonel—and all of humanity—must rely on Nick as he leads our struggle for survival.

Dwayne Johnson Anchors “Baywatch” With Boundless Personality (Opens May 31)

Superstar Dwayne Johnson rocks the beach as lifeguard hero Mitch Buchannon in Paramount Pictures’ big-screen adaptation of Baywatch (in Philippine cinemas May 31, 2017).

unnamed.jpg

In Emerald Bay, no one looms larger than legendary lifeguard, Lieutenant Mitch Buchannon. As the leader of the Baywatch team, Mitch has become something of a local folk hero.

Mitch’s singular goal on any given day is to protect his beach and the people who come there to enjoy it,” Johnson explains. “He cares deeply about the people of Emerald Bay and they love him for it, to the point that the locals have created their own mythology around him. ‘Did he create Google?’ ‘Did he help launch the first rocket to the moon, even though he’s in his early forties?’ He’s shrouded in mystery.”

unnamed (10).jpg

No one else on the planet could have played this role like Dwayne,” says producer Beau Flynn. “I like to think of him as Poseidon, God of the Ocean. He’s so at home in the water, and he fills the screen with the vibe and energy he brings.”

Baywatch is The Avengers of the beach,” Johnson declares. “Everyone is highly proficient at what they do, and has their own area of expertise.”

The film follows devoted lifeguard Mitch Buchannon as he butts heads with a brash new recruit (Zac Efron). Together, they uncover a local criminal plot that threatens the future of the Bay.

Baywatch is just about the most successful television show of all time,” says Johnson. “So I was drawn to the challenge of reintroducing a beloved property to a new audience who might not have grown up with it.”

unnamed (2).jpg

Obviously, there was a lot about the original show that worked,” he adds. “So we wanted to keep some of the core elements in place while raising the stakes for a feature film. The stunts are bigger, the action is more intense, but we’re not taking ourselves as seriously as the show. We worked hard to find the right balance. As badass as the action in this movie is, we’re all in on the joke. We’re all having fun. We’re laughing with Baywatch, not at Baywatch.”

unnamed (1).jpg

This summer, Baywatch will provide the world with a refreshing beach getaway, free of sunburns, swimmer’s ear and sand in their shoes. Johnson sums up: “The number one thing you can expect when you see Baywatch is FUN. We’re talking next level, life-changing, filthy, awesome fun. You’re going to laugh your ass off.”

Baywatch is distributed in the Philippines by United International Pictures through Columbia Pictures.

Movie Review: ‘Sleepless’ (2015)

Review by lou.

Gem and Barry are two lonely people who can’t sleep. They spend hours lying awake while every- one else is asleep. They are both stuck in a rut, both of them working dead-end jobs at a call center. Gem can’t seem to let go of a stifling relationship while Barry can’t let go of a great loss. They explore the city at night and find ways to kill time. Though there’s a certain loneliness when you’re awake in the dead of night, there’s also a bond that develops. Gem and Barry talk about zombies, love and everything in between. Together they fight the loneliness that keeps them awake. In the end, they realize, that even though you cannot cure insomnia, you just need someone to lean on until the sun comes up.

sleepleess.jpg

Prime Cruz delivers a refresher in Sleepless – a peek into the lives of insomniacs that isn’t as romantic as it looks like, for in it lies a story about one’s personal conflict; only rather one that is shallow once examined from a distance. Insomnia here is (somehow) made out to look like the cousin of death, and it brings forth characters who seem like they’re missing an energy that had been once there before; a breath of life that has slowly diminished over time. Urban life is where its focused, and in there, we meet Glaiza de Castro’s Gem, and Dominic Roco’s Barry, who explore this nocturnal playground – only to sit beside an emptiness that almost totally consumes the entire scenery, and everything else. This hollow feeling that emanates so true then becomes the cause of the film’s entire mediocrity that gets steadfast and ruinous even – seeing how its premise sounds pleasantly new for the ears to hear.

SLPLS1.png

The usual storytelling isn’t relied upon, and so, it flows wherever it can. Various subplots that appear in its way are meant to thicken the plot, yet they virtually never manage to shape the characters as well as they intended to, as it longs for a depth that isn’t much present in its surroundings. What compensates for those shortcomings though, are the dialogues that are made entertaining by both Glaiza de Castro and Dominic Roco who, makes known the significance of their own blabbering in subtlety, setting aside the intimacy that could’ve been brewed. In those moments, they release their frustrations, or so it seems, through talks that stem from loneliness, stress, and boredom – validating what the film is trying to lay its fingers on; the pressures of urban life. Relatability shows up in it, and it winds up as the chains that bind us to these two, no matter how thin the link ends up being in all reality.

SLPLS2.png

The weirdness that speaks in their conversations are enticing and real, most specially when it comes to showing us who they truly are, and what they feel on the inside, we get a hint of where the film is getting at. Perhaps it couldn’t be seen immediately, but nevertheless, it remains there, just waiting to be found once you walk past the electricity that Glaiza and Roco have produced to get rid of the drought that their feet have stepped in. Summing it all up, Sleepless isn’t something special, but it readily admits that in one way or another. The darkness of the night may find more life in BP Valenzuela’s music, just as it does in Tey Clamor’s images of it which capture vibes to be felt, but those aren’t only what it can offer as it makes itself worthy of being seen. Through its depiction of the troubles that eat up our lives; failure and longing – both of which could keep us up at night, it easily finds, and approaches an audience to embrace, and open up to.

A young Peter Parker/Spider-Man (Tom Holland), who made his sensational debut in Captain America: Civil War, begins to navigate his newfound identity as the web-slinging super hero in Spider-Man: Homecoming.

Movie Review: ‘Pirates of the Caribbean: Salazar’s Revenge’ (2017)

Thrust into an all-new adventure, a down-on-his-luck Capt. Jack Sparrow (Johnny Depp) feels the winds of ill-fortune blowing even more strongly when deadly ghost sailors led by his old nemesis, the evil Capt. Salazar (Javier Bardem), escape from the Devil’s Triangle. Jack’s only hope of survival lies in seeking out the legendary Trident of Poseidon, but to find it, he must forge an uneasy alliance with a brilliant and beautiful astronomer and a headstrong young man in the British navy.

As it steps its foot into the door, Pirates of the Caribbean: Salazar’s Revenge immediately sets sail on wild, wicked seas – carrying in its vessel a sweet heart that surrenders to nothing but trouble and fun. The opening scene directly shows signs of its decisiveness; charting territories that directors Joachim Rønning and Espen Sandberg are clearly fond of. And so, they set the bar pretty high – keeping their eye on the prize, with the prize being the spectacle and swashbuckling action that awaits our presence the moment we arrive at the scene. It isn’t so hard to see that these two indie filmmakers are doing the best that they can to salvage the franchise from the shipwreck that almost made its existence forgettable.

POTC5-17.jpg

They inject spirit into this entry’s veins, and it becomes apparent as it gains a personality that is much akin to the first installment – giving us what we love, in amounts that satisfies and makes up for the mess that had once tainted its uniqueness. Fans and non-fans might absolutely be pleased to see what it’s got in store. Slapstick humor and fantastic thrills shape it up to become the blockbuster that it is so confident in being – going as far as showing us just how lovingly engaging this genre can be in an age where superhero movies dominate the game. There are lots of things in its arsenal worth anticipating, and when it tries to entertain, it doesn’t play around. Instead, it just glues you to your seat, wowing with little to no fail. Never does it launch anything to throw you off either, even if it does clock in at 2 hours and a half.

POTC5-20.jpg

The pacing is kept tight, and slick – feeling smoother than it’s ever been, since it relies on a plot that doesn’t require much attention, is devoid of complications, yet still is able to be of use to everything that occurs. It is its strongest suit, however compelling it still needed to be. Nothing gets too tangled up to be unraveled in ways that clutters – letting everything flow naturally in an ocean that doesn’t swallow up much of the grandeur. Johnny Depp’s return to his iconic role warms the heart and captivates – waving back to fans of the film series with pure glee, showing that he still has an appetite to make this role his own, save for some faltering here and there. Other than him, the rest of the cast make this voyage wonderful; particularly Javier Bardem’s undertaking of the titular Captain Salazar who, marks himself as a worthy villain for our antihero.

POTC5-07.jpg

Rønning and Sandberg certainly knew what to do when they took up this project, and voila! They have made something delightful out of it. Their raking in of new faces is rather amazing, but how they treat this fifth entry, with a liking for bang-for-your-buck finality is marvelous despite the lack of total freshness. That being said, it’s not much of a memorable finale, but it does make us remember the joy of the unique entertainment experience that this film franchise has brought years ago. Bringing back old characters, and taking us to majestic places that quite solidifies Jack Sparrow’s beloved persona with spectacular results, Salazar’s Revenge makes us thirst for more of its kind…as long as it’s a shiny, rewarding treasure deserving to be sought after.

Zac Efron Channels Ryan Lochte in the New Sex Comedy “Baywatch”

Nurturing an impressive body of work that encompasses both film and television, Zac Efron has proven to be one of Hollywood’s most sought-after talents.

This season, Efron co-stars opposite Dwayne Johnson in Paramount Pictures’ Baywatch, the highly-anticipated comedy based off the popular ’90s TV show.

In Philippine cinemas starting May 31, Baywatch follows devoted lifeguard Mitch Buchannon (Johnson) as he butts heads with Matt Brody (Efron), a brash new recruit. Together, they uncover a local criminal plot that threatens the future of the Bay.

unnamed (1).jpg

From the beginning, Baywatch had been envisioned as a buddy comedy, and the producers knew they’d need an actor who could hold his own against Johnson’s larger than life on-screen alter ego. They found a perfect foil in Efron, who is quickly becoming a go-to actor for ‘R’ rated comedies, having recently added Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates (2016) andNeighbors 2: Sorority Rising (2016) to his already impressive resume.

I wasn’t allowed to watch Baywatch growing up,” Efron laments. “But I do remember sneaking it, late at night, after Howard Stern on a crappy old TV with a dial. One time, I was channel flipping and came across this awesome show full of boats and explosions and I just thought the whole thing was amazing. When the show was over, I realized it was Baywatch, and I was like, ‘Holy cow. That was amazing.’”

unnamed (10).jpg

Zac’s incredibly handsome, charming and funny,” Johnson says of his co-star. “He’s got this great boyish quality at times, and I love him like a brother. He’s one of the nicest guys you’ll ever meet, so it’s that much more fun to have him play a cocky asshole and mix it up with him.”

Efron plays Matt Brody, a bad boy Olympic swimmer and two time gold medalist who arrives in Emerald Bay expecting a spot on Mitch’s highly competitive, handpicked Baywatch team.

Brody throws a wrench in things,” Johnson explains. “We’ve got this team that’s gelling, but he’s this hotshot coming off the Olympics, who thinks he can just join the team without being trained properly.”

unnamed.jpg

At the Olympics, Brody won his solo events, but messed up the team relay because he got drunk the night before,” says Efron. “He did some illegal stuff, and joining Baywatch is part of his parole.”

We drew some inspiration from Ryan Lochte in our approach to Brody, which Zac responded to immediately,” director Seth Gordon recalls. “The character was written before the real Lochte got himself into trouble, which ended up being unexpectedly prescient.”

unnamed (2).jpg

The world has had to live without Baywatch for such a long time, so I couldn’t be more excited to be bringing it back,” says Efron enthusiastically. “We’re building on one of the greatest TV shows of all time, and Dwayne, Ilfenesh, Jon, Alexandra, Kelly and Priyanka are all so amazing and talented. It’s going to be hilarious and action-packed. I’m really stoked about it.”

Baywatch is distributed in the Philippines by United International Pictures through Columbia Pictures.
