This year’s highlight in showbiz is the exchange of partners among love teams. Like Kathryn Bernardo with Alden Richards, who recently announced their new tandem “KathDen.”
How about Daniel Padilla? Who will be his new lucky partner?
Kathryn’s longtime love team partner Daniel Padilla is rumored to have a new movie project with Charo Santos. Some say that it will be a comedy movie with the working title “Ang Lalaking Dumukot kay Charo Santos.”
But the question is, “Is it true?”
The rumors started over an Instagram post of Star Cinema executive Maluo Santos and film producer Niel Arce. This will be the first time that Daniel Padilla and Charo Santos would be in a movie that would be directed by Joyce Bernal, under Spring Films.
But still, there was no update when they would start the project.
This is not the first time that Daniel and Kathryn had worked separately with different projects. In 2017, Kathryn was one of the cast members for the family drama “Three Words to Forever,” while Daniel was also part of the cast of the movie “Revenger Squad.”
What is more important in having a new tandem or love team is the contentment of the viewers in watching the movie. Though it may not be the usual movie that fans used to watch of the loveteam partners, but directors and filmmakers have seen a potential in new pairings that could excite the viewers.
May may not agree of tandems having new partners, but neither is it bad to try for a change.
Despite big international cinema releases in the past week, local movies still shone as Sarah Geronimo‘s “Miss Granny” and KathNiel‘s “The Hows of Us” became box office hits.
Miss Granny grossed more than ₱130 million.
Miss Granny continued to draw moviegoers in and reached a single-day gross of ₱21 million on August 26, with 230 cinemas. The movie went on to make money after earning ₱85 million on the first week.
Two weeks later, the Joyce Bernal film is still being shown in 160 cinemas and the gross reached ₱130 million, according to Viva.
₱280 mllion 5-day gross for The Hows of Us.
Just like Miss Granny, “The Hows of Us” also experienced an all time box office high as it experienced a ₱35 Million opening day gross. After five days, the gross of the Kathryn Bernardo and Daniel Padilla film reached ₱279 Million.
Directed by Cathy Garcia-Molina, real-life couple Bernardo and Padilla play Primo and George, a couple who are struggling to save their long-term relationship.
The Philippine film industry is not dead.
The success of the two films puts to rest the long-held belief that the local film industry is dead.
For the very first time, Bela Padilla and Jericho Rosales pair up for the upcoming luckiest film of the year. Directed by the Dan Villegas, Luck At First Sight is about two unlucky persons who found fortune in each other’s arms.
Joma, an independent man, believes that a life charm could help him win big to be able to pay his debts. Diane, on the other hand, doesn’t believe in ‘luck’ but relies heavily in hard work. The two accidentally met and instantly realized that they are each other’s life charm. Everything is going well, until one of them falls for the other. And according to the fortune teller whom Joma confide into, the luck will disappear when one of them gets romantically attached to the other.
Luck at First Sight hit the cinemas last May 3 and have been receiving great reviews from the viewers. And if you haven’t watched it yet, here’s 8 lucky reasons why you should rush to the cinemas now.
Starting his career being a director of photography, Dan Villegas has turned many films into blockbuster hits. Some of his works were English Only, Please, Always Be My Maybe, How To Be Yours, The Breakup Playlist, and the award-winning Walang Forever where he won his Best Director award in the Metro Manila Film Festival 2015.
We often hear Joyce Bernal being dubbed as Direk Joyce for being a world-class director who became the woman behind the success of Everything About Her, Bakit Di Ka Crush Ng Crush Mo, Kimmy Dora franchise, and many more. But now, he took the role ‘Creative Head’ for this genius film story-wise.
Being the ultimate leading man that he is right now, Jericho Rosales is thrilled to be working with this new set of crew, excluding Dan Villegas and Kim Molina whom he have worked with already in Walang Forever.
If you’re thinking that Bela Padilla is all beauty, you should be researching her credentials. He co-wrote our all-time favorite, Camp Sawi and even this film. Imagine? A genius young actress who can work in front and behind the cameras, even Dan Villegas and Direk Joyce lauded her creativeness when it comes to story building.
Admit it or not, Kim Molina and Cholo Barretto is the breath of fresh air in this film. They add up to the humor that the film caters. They have a love story of their own inside the film that the viewers would not expect, so watch out for it. Dennis Padilla and Issa Pressman also complete the lucky cast.
Choosing the official sound track of every film might be tricky, but for this film, they have chosen if not perfect, the best song that would match the film. Sung by the returning Zia Quizon, ‘Umaaraw, Umuulan’ was dressed with a different tone that perfectly fit the theme of the film. You can listen to the song’s new twist in Spotify.
We don’t want to spill the beans here, but the movie was packed with great life lessons that all can relate to. From love to family, the film is surely fit for all ages. It caters a different take on luck and love, that it can never be paired up, it’s like polar opposites. If you have the luck, you can find love, but once you find love, luck will disappear. Well, it’s enough for now and it’s for you to find out what happened between Joma and Diane.
At the beginning of the film, Madam Tetchie was introduced, the fortune teller who introduced the concept of Life Charm to Joma. According to her, all of us have a “life charm”, and once we meet them, everything that surrounds us turns to luck. It’s like a good luck charm, but an actual living person. Like any other charms that were introduced to us, there’s an exception. You can never fall in love with your life charm, because if you do, the luck will vanish.
To find out more about this incredible film, catch it in the cinemas NOW and enjoy the luck that the film will bring to you. Graded A by the MTRCB, you will surely fall in love with this movie.
