  • Wednesday, August 27, 2014

    Korean actor Ki Hong Lee has obviously set a firm pace to stardom starring opposite Dylan O'Brien in the upcoming book adaptation of "The Maze Runner."  By the looks of it, the recently concluded Greenies Screening in the Phils. had the girls giggling after the movie, charmed by his notable presence and performance in the movie.


                     Thomas (O'Brien) wakes up in a lift, moving slowly upward. As the box grinds to a halt and the doors open, he finds himself among a colony of boys who welcome him to the Glade – a large open expanse surrounded by enormous concrete walls. Thomas’ mind is blank. He has no knowledge of where he is, doesn’t know where he came from, and he can’t remember his parents, his past, or even his own name.
                   
                     Thomas and his fellow “Gladers” don’t know how or why they got to the Glade.  Thomas learns that each resident of the Glade has a role to play, from gardening to construction to being one of the elite runners who map the walls of the Maze that keep them captive and change configurations every night. Maze Runners race the clock to cover as much ground as possible before the end of the day when the Maze locks down and the deadly biomechanical Grievers roam the corridors of the concrete structure.



                    The elite among the Gladers are called Runners, whose athleticism propels them through the Maze each day, which helps them compile a map of the foreboding structure and, maybe, figure out a way to escape.  Their captain is Minho, played by Ki Hong Lee.  The young actor grew to understand his position of leadership among the Gladers in a very individual way.  “I looked at the Marines and the Army and, and I consider Minho like a general of the Gladers,” Lee explains, “It’s his job to rally the troops.”

                    Running through the massive walls which is both industrial and ancient in construction, Minho along with Thomas, runs into the Maze everyday and goes back to the Glade to bring back hope and memorizes each run so he can piece together the intricate and ever changing structure of the Maze.   "Minho doesn't say much - he just runs fast which makes him invaluable for solving the riddle of the maze.  He's an Indiana Jones-type adventure dude," says director Wes Ball.  "He's the fastest, most bad-ass guy who goes out into the Maze everyday.  He's kind of a mysterious guy, but will eventually open up too."

                    Ki Hong Lee (Minho) began acting in middle school, performing in church skits, and he grew to love the stage and maintains a passion for theater. Lee recently played the much-beloved character Paul in ABC Family’s "The Nine Lives Of Chloe King," and took part in the film adaptation of "Yellowface," from the Tony Award®-winning playwright David Henry Hwang. Additionally on stage he debuted at Los Angeles’ East West Players in a play called "Wrinkles," which was the first time his father was able to see Lee perform, so the play remains very special to him.

                    In his personal life, Lee has a passion for people, education and good causes. A graduate of UC Berkeley, he has served in some form of student government from middle school through college. Raised in different cultures, from Seoul to Auckland, Lee considers himself to be a California soul at heart, and could not continue life without good Mexican food in regular doses. He also enjoys sports, particularly basketball, football and tennis. His favorite football team – the Dallas Cowboys.


                    "The Maze Runner" sprints in cinemas nationwide this September 17 from 20th Century Fox to be distributed by Warner Bros.

    In the vein of high-adrenaline action-packed films such as "Narc," "Catch .44" and "Frozen Ground," prolific producer Randall Emmett pits Jason Patric againts Bruce Willis in  the upcoming movie "The Prince."


                    “Bruce really fell for the material, as well as Jason, and then John (Cusack) came on board and I felt that actors of this caliber would bring something really special to the characters and to the story of a man having to face his old demons when his daughter disappears in the same crime universe that he used to live in.” says Emmett.

                    Jason Patric stars as Paul Brennan, a widowed family man who goes to New Orleans to track down his missing daughter. The truth of her disappearance is hard for him to take and forces him to confront his own criminal past.  Living under the radar for 20 years, Paul operates as a mechanic whose daughter, Beth (Gia Mantegna), attends college all the way across the country.  But when he soon learns that Beth's tuition has not been paid, he flies immediately to Lousiana to check on her despite his worst fears.  As Paul finds her way to Beth, he found her best friend Angela (Jessica Lowndes) and takes her where she's last seen Beth.


                    Unknown to Paul, tracking down Beth means going through the path where he will eventually catch up with his past once again.  As they go through and past bullets looking for Beth, Paul finally comes face to face with an old enemy, Omar (Willis) - the city's most powerful man whose family he mistakenly killed 20 years back. It is then revealed that Paul is a former mob enforcer two decades ago.  “I play a single father who all of a sudden finds out that his daughter has disappeared, and in searching for her discovers she has a secret life,” explains Patric. “As the story unfolds, you find out Paul also had a secret life. I think we all have our pasts, parts of ourselves that we hide, for our betterment we believe. With every character I always find those parts of myself that I understand or that I have lived. In this case there is a darkness that this man has buried because he wants to have something better.”



                    "Paul is the ultimate father, a tough guy but also a teddy bear deep down inside," explains Gia Mantegna who plays Beth, Paul's wayward daughter who runs with the wrong crowd when she leaves home for college. "Beth is the driving force for Paul’s return to New Orleans where he is forced back to his old territory and faces his enemies."

                    "The Prince is an incredible action thriller, but at the same time there is a heart in there," concludes director Brian Miller. "There is the revenge that Omar has been seeking over the last twenty years and has built up through to the big finale at the end. And there's the very realistic father daughter relationship that I think people are going to relate to. Like a lot of people, Paul and his daughter had a very disconnected relationship. When he goes on this journey, it brings them closer together. It’s also a wakeup for all the characters who go through their own personal arcs. When people walk away at the end of this movie they are going to be blown away."


                    "The Prince" opens in theaters nationwide on September 10 from Axinite Digicinema.

    The 6th Pandayang Lino Brocka Political Film and New Media Festival, an annual festival of critical and cultural audio-visual works is set to be launched on August 29, 2014 at the University of the Philippines Film Institute, Cine Adarna.

    The film festival is a tribute to internationally acclaimed Philippine cinema legend Lino Brocka, who has produced countless films depicting Philippine social reality among which include timeless films Tinimbang Ka Ngunit Kulang, Maynila sa mga Kuko ng Liwanag, Insiang, Bayan Ko, Kapit sa Patalim, Orapronobis, among many others.
     
    Brocka’s untimely death saw a decline in political cinema in the mainstream. Thus, in order to continue the path trail blazed by the great filmmaker for the next generation, Tudla Productions Inc., an alternative, non-profit group of filmmakers, students and cultural workers has taken up the reins of organizing the annual festivity since 2009.

    Headlining this year’s event is a forum on “The Relevance of the ‘National Artist Award’ in Filipino Culture and the Arts.” The timely discussion, spurred by a controversial issue involving renowned cinema actress Nora Aunor not being awarded the prestigious title. The said forum is slated from 9 in the morning until noon.

    Following the forum is a continuous screening of film selections featuring works of upcoming filmmakers. The showcasing of films runs throughout the afternoon not to be missed by cinephiles.
    Later in the afternoon, the event pays homage to the great cinema artist, Brocka by showcasing his life and works in a biographical documentary by Christian Blackwood titled Signed: Lino Brocka. 
    Finally, culminating the affair is an awarding ceremony recognizing participating filmmakers and workshop facilitators of the 6th Pandayan Lino Brocka workshop.

    The Pandayang Lino Brocka Political Film and New Media Festival is a cultural gathering that aims to inspire the creation and popularization of truthful, artistic and relevant audio-visual works that enlighten and cultivate critical consciousness of the mass audience.
    Since its inception in 2009, the festival has continuously spearheaded political cinema production and distribution in the country, following Brocka’s belief that films and politics cannot be dissociated. The political film production created by the festivals are a continuing legacy of Brocka’s desire to develop what he calls "the Great Filipino Audience" which for him is more important than creating "the Great Filipino Movie."
    With this goal in mind, the festival does not stop after a one-time screening in the local theatre halls of UP. The film festival is a two-part festival that will be also brought to various universities, workplaces, urban poor and peasant communities following its launch.

    The Pandayan Lino Brocka Political Film and New Media Festival aims to bring cinema to the local eskinita, marketplaces, union offices and picketlines in order to deviate from the mainstream production of films for commercial success and to reach out to the grassroot members of Philippine society.

    The festival believes that cinema and new media in the 21st century are powerful tools capable of raising social awareness regarding the plight of the masses, similar to what powered Brocka’s films.

    As Brocka believed that works echoing the lives of the common masses are undying, so too shall the festival live by the same principles. The festival aims to actively engage the millions of Filipinos, regardless their social class and status, into discourse and yet further, social action.
    As a festival of arts, the Pandayang Lino Brocka does not aim to be merely a display of works, rather, as a vehicle for socio-cultural reflection and as an ideological weapon to liberate the minds of the people.

    Below is a detailed schedule of the film festival launche:

    A great film to that the whole family would enjoy, "Pudsey the Movie" would surely make everyone's heart melt with joy. Following his winning performance in Britain’s Got Talent last 2012, the charming Pudsey now stars in his own movie about a city stray dog who relocates to the countryside with his new loving family.


    Entitled, “Pudsey: The Movie,” it follows the titular dog and his siblings Molly (Izzy Meikle-Smith), George (Spike White) and Tommy (Malachy Knights) as they move to the village of Chuffington-on-Sea with their mother Gail (Hynes).



    The film will remind you of the warmth of the cute pig in "Babe" and the charm of "Charlotte's Web". I love how the opening salvo of the movie would show you several glimpses of Pudsey's misadventures in the city. There is definitely no dull moment in the entire film. Kids and kids at heart will surely love this little rascal from start to finish. I just love how Pudsey acts and not simply reacts on the scenes inthe movie. It seems as if he is doing everything naturally.

    Dog lovers would surely love this fun filled film for the whole family. The picturesque scenes of the city and the farms provided a wonderful setting for the movie. The simplicity of the story and crazy antics of the furry cast would remind you of "101 Dalmatians". I also love how the story-line also focuses on the love and strength of being a family.

    Nick Moore will direct the family film from a screenplay by Paul Rose. Vertigo Films’ Rupert Preston, Allan Niblo and James Richardson are producing with co-producer Simon Cowell’s Syco Entertainment.


    Voiced by David Walliams,  the lovable mutt is smitten with his newfound family despite being independent for a long time. Untamed and adjusting to a whole new environment, he causes chaos in the village but foils the wicked schemes of a dastardly landowner (an enjoyably preposterous John Sessions).

    “Pudsey The Movie” will open on August 27 exclusively in SM Cinemas nationwide from Silverline Inc.

    Currently in cinemas, “A Good Man” is an exciting Steven Seagal show of non-stop, heart-racing action. A Good Man follows Alexander (Steven Seagal) a retired Special Forces agent torn by a tragic past, as he tries to live a low-key life out of trouble. But trouble will find him when his neighbors Lena (Iulia Verdes) and Mya (Sofia Nicolaescu) are kidnapped and held  ransom by Strip club owner Li Wei (Elias Ferkin) who works for the mysterious Mr. Chen until their brother Saha (Victor Webster) pays it off. Alexander and Sasha will embark on a mission to free their friends and bring down Mr. Chen’s (Tzi Ma) crooked empire. 


                   
    Tzi Ma said, “The most interesting thing in the movie is the content in the story of the balance between good and evil, and how  those forces often times come together. It is something hard to depict, and this movie shows it throughout, surprisingly so.” 



    “A Good Man” is from Crystalsky Multimedia and is now showing in the following cinemas:  SM North Edsa,  SM Fairview, SM Marikina, SM Megamall, SM Manila, SM Sta. Mesa, SM Southmall, SM Bacoor, SM Iloilo, Festival Mall Alabang, Gateway Cineplex, Cinerama Recto, Fishermall, Remar-Cubao, Robinson’s Galleria, Robinson’s Metro-East, Ever Commonwealth, Promenade Greenhills, Sta.

    Who among of you have seen the movie "The Woman In Black"? Remember that revengeful ghost on the cursed Eel Marsh House? Well... apparently she's not gone because remember the movie's tagline "she never forgets", totally, she's going back soon in movie theaters to scare once again in this upcoming second installment of the said movie.

    To those who have watched the movie "The Woman In Black" starring Daniel Radcliffe and had the creeps over that film, the scary lady in black will return sometime in February as the camera starts rolling for the production of the "The Woman In Black 2: Angel of Death" movie. I think the movie will have a different production outfit this time.

    "The Woman In Black 2: Angel of Death" Summary/Synopsis/Plot


    The story begins 40 years after Daniel Radcliffe character's Arthur Kipps unraveled the dark secrets hiding in the creepy Eel Marsh House. The haunted house is now the property of the British government and turned the house into a military hospital during the World War II. London is under siege. While seeking for safety from the bombs, two teachers evacuate a group of schoolchildren to the abandoned Eel Marsh House due to its remote coastal location. However, the group instead find themselves facing an evil far more frightening when their arrival awakens the Woman in Black.

    Phoebe Fox and Harry Burnstow star in this horror-drama movie. The movie will be directed by Tom Harper from the script written by Jon Croker. Helen McCrory, Adrian Rawlins, Oaklee Pendergast, Amelia Pidgeon, and Jude Wright are also among the cast. "The Woman In Black 2: Angel Of Death" is is set for a February 13, 2015 release date. Below is the teaser movie trailer for "The Woman In Black 2: Angel Of Death".

    Growing up in a South Asian Muslim family in Detroit, filmmaker Ajmal Zaheer Ahmad (It’s a Mismatch and Alliance) used to hear folklore about jinns — supernatural creatures with roots in Islamic and Arab folklore. Ahmad says those stories helped inspired the plot of his new thriller Jinn.



    In the movie, Shawn (Dominic Rains) is an automotive designer who is happily married to his wife Jasmine (Serinda Swan). Everything changes after he receives a cryptic message about a curse that has followed his family for generations. As the threats become larger, Shawn takes on the help of a mysterious duo, Gabriel (Ray Park) and Father Westhoff (William Atherton), and a mental patient (Faran Tahir) who claims to have answers. Shawn courageously embarks on a path to save his family and confront the ancient evil forces that are hunting him.



    For those not familiar with jinns and the mythology that surrounds them can you describe it a little bit? What do jinns mean to you?

    Jinn are supposedly a third race of beings that have lived on this planet even before mankind existed. Almost two billion people from India to China to Africa believe in the Jinn. Almost two billion people from India to China to Africa believe in the Jinn. They are very similar to man in that they have free will, however they have powers that we would consider supernatural. To the rest of the world, most of the things that go “bump in the night” are attributed to the Jinn.

    Did your family tell you stories about jinns during your childhood? Can you share one?
    My mom used to tell me “If you don’t eat your veggies, the Jinn is going to come out of the woods and get you.” When I was nine that scared the heck out of me but I remember thinking, “How come no one has made a movie on the Jinns?” Well now someone has. 
    You got your start directing music videos for artists as diverse as Brandy and Fatboy Slim. What was the hardest thing about making your first feature film?
    The hardest thing about making a feature film is always trying to get the most out of the finite resources and time you have. I think that never changes no matter how large of a budget you have.
    This film takes place in the Detroit metro area, where you grew up. Is that why you decided to film there?
    Absolutely. We believe in the state and the city of Detroit and want to give back as much as we can. It’s also where I was born and raised, and I feel a deep connection with Michigan.


    What do you think of the way Detroit has been portrayed in the media lately?
    Detroit is given a bad rap because it’s easier to tell that part of the story. We don’t necessarily believe in that story and have chosen to show the Detroit that we know…which is beautiful and full of history, magic and wonder. All the same ingredients you need for a good movie backdrop as well!
    It’s also really cool — and very Detroit — that Dominic Rains plays an automotive designer in the film. What kind of research into the auto industry did you do before making the film?
    We made a car! We didn’t need much research to develop the Firebreather. As a native Michigander and Detroiter, we live, breathe and eat cars already.As a native Michigander and Detroiter, we live, breathe and eat cars already. As far as the design goes, I’ve been kicking the concept around in my head for a long time… I’ve always been a huge fan of the Firebird and Trans Am. From Smokey and the Bandit all the way up to Knight Rider. As far as the fabrication goes, the Firebreather was forged incredibly well by Classic Design Concept (CDC).

    Tell us more about the Firebreather car that you designed for the movie. Can you talk about that experience and the vision you had in mind for it?
    The vision was to do something that has never been done before. The Firebreather represents that…the first time you can walk out of a theatre and buy the car you saw in the movie…not as a prop, but as a real 600hp supercar. It’s really a symbol of the thinking we want to foster in Detroit…along with doing it over and over again.
    Michigan, of course, has a sizable Muslim and Arab population. Did you talk to any members of the community about the mythology surrounding jinns while coming up with the concept of the film?
    Absolutely! Hundreds! The film you will see is an authentic portrayal of the collective stories from around the world of numerous people, cultures and nationalities.
    How has being an American-born South Asian influenced your journey in the film industry? Has it made it easier/harder?
    I think this business is hard no matter what background you’re from. In some ways, not having the traditional connections can slow you down…in other ways, it gives you a new and fresh point of view that can make you stand out as well.
    There haven’t been many South Asian characters in horror movies — though Dileep Rao’s Rham Jas in Drag Me to Hell comes to mind. What do you think of the way South Asians have been portrayed in the horror genre?
    Well I think it’s been the same across all genres…South Asians are usually the convenience store owner, the terrorist or the comedy relief. We’re choosing to change that up a bit.
    ‘’JINN’’ is released and distributed by CAPTIVE CINEMA.

    Showing on September 10. Nationwide
