Robert De Niro and Sylvester Stallone in ‘Grudge Match’ Movie Poster and Trailer!

Warner Bros. Pictures’ new comedy “Grudge Match” pairs heavy hitters Robert De Niro (“Raging Bull,” “Silver Linings Playbook”) and Sylvester Stallone (“Rocky” films, “The Expendables”) with the larger-than-life comedy of Kevin Hart and the irascible wit of Alan Arkin for a one-two punch for fans of every generation.

Grudge-Match

Even before De Niro’s “The Kid” and Stallone’s “Razor” get into the ring to settle their decades-old score, both the fists and the barbs fly across the screen as the two contenders prepare to meet in the rematch of the century.

In the film, De Niro and Stallone play Billy “The Kid” McDonnen and Henry “Razor” Sharp, two local Pittsburgh fighters whose fierce rivalry put them in the national spotlight. Each had scored a victory against the other during their heyday, but in 1983, on the eve of their decisive third match, Razor suddenly announced his retirement, refusing to explain why but effectively delivering a knock-out punch to both their careers. Thirty years later, boxing promoter Dante Slate, Jr., seeing big dollar signs, makes them an offer they can’t refuse: to re-enter the ring and settle the score once and for all.

But they may not have to wait that long: on their first encounter in decades, their long-festering feud erupts into an unintentionally hilarious melee that instantly goes viral. The sudden social media frenzy transforms their local grudge match into a must-see HBO event. Now, if they can just survive the training, they may actually live to fight again.

“I’ve always loved boxing, and I’ve always been attracted to second chance stories,” says comedy veteran Peter Segal, the film’s director and producer. “But even more important than the fight is the second chances the characters are given to repair relationships they destroyed three decades earlier. In essence, the fight becomes a metaphor for never giving up.”

Producer Bill Gerber remarks, “In addition to playing out an unresolved contention in the ring, this story felt like a great opportunity to talk about unresolved relationships. It shows the humanity—and the humor—of getting older and as I’m getting older, I’m interested in telling those stories.”

Screenwriter Tim Kelleher came up with the idea for “Grudge Match” after thinking about the almost-was 1999 heavyweight rematch between Larry Holmes and George Foreman, when both were 50 years old. Although the fight never came to pass, Kelleher says he couldn’t help but think of all the great fighters who were retired, but would love to box again if given a chance. He wondered, “What if there were two old fighters whose rivalry was legendary but never fully settled?”

With that in mind, Kelleher created the characters of Henry “Razor” Sharp and Billy “The Kid” McDonnen, two boxers from Pittsburgh whose rivalry brought them fame and fortune, until Razor unceremoniously dropped out of their decisive third bout, and both fell into obscurity. In “Grudge Match,” Razor and Kid are presented with the opportunity to return to a moment in time with the chance to do things differently.

“It’s about guys who were really tough in their time, but have lost their sense of identity,” Kelleher says. “Then, all of a sudden, they have a chance to go back and regain all of those things that made them who they were. But even if they want to fight each other, the question now is, can they?”

Opening across the Philippines in Jan. 15, 2014, “Grudge Match” will be distributed by Warner Bros. Pictures, a Warner Bros. Entertainment Company.

‘Amazing Spider-Man 2′ trailer #2 revealed!

Less than two weeks after the launch of the full trailer of “The Amazing Spider-Man 2,” Columbia Pictures has already released a follow-up, new trailer – this time preceded by a personal message from cast member Emma Stone.

Andrew-Garfield-375x389

We’ve always known that Spider-Man’s most important battle has been within himself: the struggle between the ordinary obligations of Peter Parker and the extraordinary responsibilities of Spider-Man. But in “The Amazing Spider-Man 2,” Peter Parker finds that a greater conflict lies ahead.

It’s great to be Spider-Man (Andrew Garfield). For Peter Parker, there’s no feeling quite like swinging between skyscrapers, embracing being the hero, and spending time with Gwen (Emma Stone). But being Spider-Man comes at a price: only Spider-Man can protect his fellow New Yorkers from the formidable villains that threaten the city. With the emergence of Electro (Jamie Foxx), Peter must confront a foe far more powerful than he. And as his old friend, Harry Osborn (Dane DeHaan), returns, Peter comes to realize that all of his enemies have one thing in common: OsCorp.

The film, directed by Marc Webb from a screen story and screenplay by Alex Kurtzman & Roberto Orci & Jeff Pinkner based on the Marvel Comic Book by Stan Lee and Steve Ditko, is produced by Avi Arad and Matt Tolmach.

(Opening across the Philippines on April 30, “The Amazing Spider-Man 2” is distributed by Columbia Pictures, local office of Sony Pictures Releasing International.

Pictures’ and Village Roadshow Pictures’ sci-fi thriller “Edge of Tomorrow,” under the direction of Doug Liman (“The Bourne Identity,” “Mr. & Mrs. Smith”).

Edge-of-Tomorrow-375x249

The epic action of “Edge of Tomorrow” unfolds in a near future in which an alien race has hit the Earth in an unrelenting assault, unbeatable by any military unit in the world.

Major William Cage (Cruise) is an officer who has never seen a day of combat when he is unceremoniously dropped into what amounts to a suicide mission. Killed within minutes, Cage now finds himself inexplicably thrown into a time loop—forcing him to live out the same brutal combat over and over, fighting and dying again…and again.

But with each battle, Cage becomes able to engage the adversaries with increasing skill, alongside Special Forces warrior Rita Vrataski (Blunt). And, as Cage and Rita take the fight to the aliens, each repeated encounter gets them one step closer to defeating the enemy.

The international cast also includes Bill Paxton (“Aliens,” “2 Guns”), Kick Gurry (Australian TV’s “Tangle”), Dragomir Mrsic (“Snabba Cash II”), Charlotte Riley (“World Without End”), Jonas Armstrong (BBC TV’s “Robin Hood”), and Franz Drameh (“Attack the Block”).

Liman is directing “Edge of Tomorrow” from a screenplay by Christopher McQuarrie and Jez Butterworth & John-Henry Butterworth, based on the acclaimed novel All You Need is Kill by Hiroshi Sakurazaka. Erwin Stoff produces, along with Tom Lassally, Jason Hoffs, Gregory Jacobs and Jeffrey Silver. The executive producers are Doug Liman, Dave Bartis, Joby Harold, Hidemi Fukuhara, and Bruce Berman, with Kim Winther and Tim Lewis serving as co-producers.

‘Ang Turkey Man ay Pabo Rin’ to open at Ayala Cinemas nationwide, trailer revealed!

A cross-cultural comedy about a Filipino American couple who celebrates life with karaoke music, superstitious in-laws, immigration laws, unexpected pregnancies, brown-outs and Thanksgiving turkey will finally get its much awaited theatrical run this month.

Tuesday-Vargas-Cai-Cortez-and-Julia-Clarete-in-a-scene-from-Ang-Turkey-Man-ay-Pabo-Rin-500x300

Yes, “Ang Turkey Man Ay Pabo Rin,” the critically acclaimed comedy by first-time director Randolph Longjas, will be shown exclusively at Ayala Malls Cinemas nationwide starting December 18.

Longjas is very grateful to Atty. Joji Alonso of Quantum Films for picking up the film for distribution and to Ayala Cinemas for heeding the public clamor for a commercial release.

“I’m just really thankful that Quantum Films and Ayala Mall helped me in this theatrical showing. It’s exciting to see this film on a wider platform and audience. I didn’t even see it coming that it’ll be distributed as early as the year ends,” the neophyte filmmaker said.

Although Longjas has cut an all-new trailer for the coming theatrical release, the version that audiences will see this month is actually the same as the one shown during the CineFilipino festival last September.

For his part, CineFilipino festival director Vincent Nebrida said the coming theatrical release of “Ang Turkey Man ay Pabo Rin” has his wholehearted support. The film is the second CineFilipino entry to open in theaters after “Ang Kwento ni Mabuti”, which enjoyed a week-long extended run immediately after the festival.

“We are working towards the commercial, theatrical screenings of other CineFilipino entries early next year,” Nebrida revealed to InterAksyon, citing the strong clamor for releases of other CineFilipino hits like Sigrid Andrea Bernardo’s “Ang Huling Cha-Cha ni Anita”, Sari and Kiri Dalena’s “The Guerrilla is a Poet” and Mike Alcazaren’s “Puti”.

Written by Ronald Allan Habon and starring Tuesday Vargas, Travis Kraft, Julia Clarete, Cai Cortez and JM De Guzman, “Ang Turkey Man ay Pabo Rin” is an experimental comedy that explores the trials, tribulations, and triumphs of Cookie and Matthew, a Filipino-American couple on a universal love trip — that which does not discriminate against color, stature, or culture.

Longjas says it is “a celebration of the Filipino experience from a foreigner’s perspective, and alternatively, the realization of the American dream in a Filipino’s eyes”.

Considered as the sleeper hit of CineFilipino, the film also had a successful re-screening at UP Cine Adarna last month where survivors of typhoon Yolanda who are now in Manila were allowed to watch the film for free. The proceeds of the screening were also for the benefit of the typhoon victims as Longjas expressed his intention to buy portable radios to help connect the survivors to the outside world following the breakdown of communications in the aftermath of Yolanda.

Tuesday Vargas, who stars as Cookie, earlier said that through the film, Longjas and Habon want to remove the stigma attached to stereotyped characters like Cookie and Matthew, played by expat Travis Kraft.

“Gusto kong maka-relate yung tao sa ganun, sa mga characters who aspire to be greater than themselves kahit nilalagay sila ng society sa isang kahon, sa isang bilog,” Tuesday pointed out.

For her part, Julia Clarete who plays Osang, one of Cookie’s best friends, said that she fell in love with the film’s script the first time she read it.

“It was the plot that got me to the last page—a timely story that addresses the touching and hilarious journey of a Filipina in a relationship with a foreigner,” Julia noted.

Ang Turkey Man ay Pabo Rin” is produced by Tonee Acejo and edited by Carlo Manatad, and Joris Fernandez with cinematography by Tom Redoble, music by Jedd Dumaguina, production design by Butch Garcia and Nette Madrid.

Mark Wahlberg the ‘Lone Survivor’ movie poster and trailer!

Touchstone Pictures’ upcoming blockbuster “Lone Survivor” has been lauded by critics as a profoundly moving and “deeply intense” tribute to America’s Navy SEALs – but getting the film off the ground was no easy feat.

LoneSurvivor-375x552

Based on retired Petty Officer First Class Marcus Luttrell’s 2007 best-selling book Lone Survivor: The Eyewitness Account of Operation Redwing and the Lost Heroes of SEAL Team 10, the film adaptation tells the chilling story of one historically fateful day. On June 28, 2005 a four-man reconnaissance and surveillance team set out on a mission in the desolate region in Kunar province to identify a key Taliban leader believed to be responsible for the deaths of several U.S. service members.

Suddenly faced with an unfathomable ambush of enemy fire, Lieutenant Michael Murphy (Taylor Kitsch), Second Class Petty Officer Matthew Gene “Axe” Axelson (Emilie Hirsch), and Second Class Danny P. Dietz (Ben Foster) perished while fighting with relentless will and bravery alongside their brothers-in-arms. Luttrell (Mark Wahlberg) became the only survivor following the intense gunfight and five days in the remote mountains, protected from the terrorist organization by village locals.

A total of 11 SEALs and eight soldiers lost their lives on that mountain as rescue aircrafts too were shot down, and at that time the tragedy marked the biggest single loss of life for Naval Special Warfare forces since World War ll.

Yet despite “Lone Survivor’s” captivating plotline, it turns out that the based-on-a-true-story movie almost didn’t make the leap from book to the big screen. According to producer Randall Emmet, investors were initially skeptical, and they worried that the film wouldn’t appeal to international markets.

“At first they thought it was too ‘down the middle,’ and there were risks in it. It didn’t fit into a certain genre like action or thriller. This is a really heartfelt drama and that can be conceived as more risky versus a mainstream, commercial action movie,” Emmet said. “But I felt a personal responsibility to make this happen. Even if we made no money, Peter [Berg, the director] and I knew this was a story about humanity, compassion, selflessness and it had to be made regardless. We took some meetings in Cannes, and thankfully investors saw that [vision] too.”

But Luttrell said he was simply honored Hollywood honchos would even want to tell his story.
“No matter how many times I get up and tell [it], or how many people read the book, it’s nothing compared to how many people will watch this film,” Luttrell said.

And for the actors, the pressure was on to capture these real-life characters in an authentic way – a way that could serve as some sort of comfort for families of the fallen.

“Getting into character firstly there was the physical side, three months of training at an extreme level to look the part of Michael Murphy. I also got to go the SEAL base in Hawaii and sit and talk to Marcus and others, and hear stories about Murph and the funny moments and how he found his motivations,” Kitsch said. “We’re all guilty of being in our own bubble but doing a film like this, it grounds you. It makes you take a hard look in the mirror at the opportunities you have and the relationships… Audiences need to realize that these men don’t start the war; they just go and fight it. It doesn’t matter what side you’re on politically, everyone should be pro-soldier.”

Co-star Eric Bana, who plays Lieutenant Commander Erik Kristensen, first became a film face for Special Ops in the 2001 action movie “Black Hawk Down,” too stressed the importance of telling a story that would give audiences an even deeper understanding of the sacrifices made by our troops in combat.
“I just hope audiences really get a sense of what an incredible task these men are faced with,” he told us. “I knew going into this movie, it was going to be a very special experience. The camaraderie was incredible.”

Yet for Luttrell, a former SEAL accustomed to fighting the fight far away – without the need for accolades and pats on the back – having now been thrust into the Hollywood limelight with an onslaught of press attention is far from his comfort zone.

“I can’t wait to get out of here,” he added with a laugh. “I just want to get back to my ranch in Texas.”
Opening across the Philippines on January 2014, “Lone Survivor” is distributed by Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures International.
