Cellphone seen in Heneral Luna biopic film?

De Jesus noticed Alemania’s pockets after watching the film again

Heneral Luna, a highly acclaimed 2015 biopic film, is among the most historically accurate Filipino movies in recent memory, except for one scene.

The scene in question has Archie Alemania as Capt. Eduardo Rusca. It’s the 32 minutes of the film where Alemnia’s character had an interaction with two others.

At first, it seems like a normal shot. However, a closer look showed something bulging out of Alemania’s left pocket that resembles a smartphone.

The inconsistency was brought to light by netizen Rainier De Jesus.

De Jesus noticed Alemania’s pockets after watching the film again.

Matagal na napalabas ang Heneral Luna (2015) pero pinanood ko ulit. Ngayon ko lang napansin na isa sa mga aktor na si Archie Alemania (nakaputing polo) bilang Eduardo Rusca, may (parang cellphone) sa kaniyang bulsa. #cellphonesabulsa,” he wrote on Facebook.

The movie’s setting is in 1898 when electronic gadgets didn’t exist.

De Jesus also said the square-shaped item in Alemania’s pocket also protrudes in other scenes.

Other netizens also noticed what appeared to be a discrepancy in the film.

Some said that the item could just be a cigarette case.

Heart Evangelista in Mulawin vs. Ravena got subjected to the same controversy and scrutiny.

Based on the photos, a smartphone was sticking out of her costume.


However, in a revisit to the official episode, a phone is nowhere to be found.
