The 2010 Metro Manila Film Festival (MMFF) will start on Christmas Day, December 25 as eight (8) new Filipino movies will flood all the multiplexes nationwide. The only new twist this year is that five (5) indie flicks will be exhibited in Cinema 3 of Robinson’s Galleria Movieworld simultaneous with the festival.
One of the entries (and one of 3 bets of Star Cinema) is “Dalaw” (Visit) which aims to scare the hell out of the moviegoers during the Holiday Season. It stars the ‘Queen of Horror Films’ – Kris Aquino – in a role that is supposed to be more physically demanding than what she did in “Sukob” and “Feng Shui”. In it, she stars with Diether Ocampo, Karylle, Alessandra de Rossi, Empress Schuck Maliksi Morales and Gina Pareno.
Directed by Dondon S. Santos (‘Noy’), “Dalaw” is out to make it to the Top 3 moneymakers in the MMFF.
Today (and not May 26 as the poster above states), an indie movie with a respectable cast of Film and TV performers will open on limited run in Metro Manila theatres.
Noy, the Movie – directed by Dondon S. Santos from the screenplay of Shugo Praico – stars one of the Philippines’ current showbiz heartthrobs Coco Martin together with Cherry Pie Picache, Joem Bascon, Erich Gonzales, Baron Geisler and Vice Ganda. It tells the story of a family breadwinner who posed as a journalist tasked to cover the campaign trail of his namesake – Senator Noynoy Aquino – in the 2010 Philippine Presidential Elections. It contains actual documentary footages combined with a family drama that revolves around poverty, survival and hope for the Filipino family.
Here is the movie’s official trailer:
