On this, the 7th and last day of our theme this week, I give you “Temptation Island” which is the most popular Filipino movie that had a beauty pageant at the core of its plot. The original, directed by the late Joey Gosiengfiao and released back in 1980, was actually interesting because it starred a number of actual beauty queens (Bb. Pilipinas Universe 1977 Jennifer Cortez, Miss Maja Pilipinas Bambi Arambulo and Azenith Briones) and immediately achieved cult-classic status that encouraged a 2011 remake from Director Chris Martinez and casted popular stars (Marian Rivera, Heart Evangelista, Lovi Poe and Solenn Heussaff) instead.
Watch the original and click on the trailer of the remake. Tell me which one floats your boat better. 😉
