Recently, Star Cinema, under the direction of Cathy Garcia Molina, announced the first-ever movie of Kathryn Bernardo and Alden Richards, who will play the role of an OFW working in Hong Kong.
During the story conference of the KathDen movie last Tuesday, Alden was given a warm welcome by director Cathy Grace Molina, Roxy Liiquigan, Mico del Rosario, and director Olive ‘Inang’ Lamasan.
According to Roxy Liquigan, it took “5 months preparation” to arrange the team-up and there were speculations that the movie will not push through because Alden Richard is exclusively for GMA Network, and there was a possibility that the GMA Artist Center would not allowed him to do the project.
But with the help of Philip Rojas of Asian Artist Agency, headed by Boy Abunda, the project was made possible.
When both artists were asked about their reactions knowing that they would be working together, Kathryn said, “Kung tatanungin niyo ako kung kinakabahan ako, super!” and Alden’s reaction was, “Siyempre, first-time kong makakatrabaho si Kath. We’ve been seeing each other for a long time.”
Kathryn and Alden are known for having strong and loyal fans in their respective love teams, Kathryn with Daniel Padilla for “KathNiel, and Alden with Maine Mendoza for “Aldub.”
But having this new team-up, both their fans positively accepted the upcoming “KathDen” movie.
To show their love and support for both artist they posted their reaction on Twitter.

Some KathNiel fans show maturity by showing support for the upcoming movie.
And now because of Maine’s announcement on her blog that he is dating Arjo Atayde, some of the AlDub fans felt sad and hope this new team up would be a successful one.

Have you imagined the biggest star of both rival networks team up together in one movie? Well, now it’s really happening.
There were rumors spreading that there will be an upcoming movie for Kathryn Bernardo and Alden Richards. But now, they put an end to those rumors when Star Cinema finally confirmed that Alden and Kathryn are set to star in a romance-drama movie under the one of the industry’s best directors, Cathy Garcia Molina.
The movie will be revolving around young Overseas Filipino Workers (OFWs).
On March 12, Kathryn and Alden finally met with the managing director Olivia Lamasan and director Molina. Although they haven’t decided the title of the movie yet, the film outfit had confirmed that the movie will come out this year.
They also confirmed that they will start filming the movie next month and most of the scenes will be filmed in Hong Kong. On a Twitter post of ROXYLIQUIGAN, @Roxy_Liquigan mentioned that it took 5 months to prepare for this movie project and thankedAlden for accepting the offer.

In addition to that, this is Alden’s first time to work with director Cathy but for Kathryn, this is her fourth time to work with her.
“This is the first time that I’ll be working with her so it’s a great honor and experience kasi I’m really on the stage of exploring the craft and my capability as an actor,” Alden told the press.
We all know that both stars are part of two leading love teams. Kathryn is with “KathNiel” pairing with Daniel Padilla, while Alden Richards is with “AlDub,” teaming-up with Maine Mendoza.
With the popularity of both love teams, Direk Cathy knew how much fans love the artists saying: “I both respect their fandoms.”
And now, she is appealing to the fandoms of both Alden and Kathryn to support them for the upcoming movie.
“Sana mahalin nila yung dalawa [with the] same [na] pagmamahal kasi hindi naman yung love team nila yung binebenta dito but yung kwento at yung galing nila bilang artista,” she added.
Make your momma proud!
Kathryn Bernardo is one young Filipino actress who made her mother proud after winning the Camera Obscura awards at the Films Ambasador’s Night, for being part of the highest grossing Pinoy film of all time – the Star Cinema produced-movie “The Hows of Us.”
Her mother, Min Bernardo, couldn’t contain her happiness and was so proud of her daughter’s newest achievement, together with all the cast and crew of the successful film. She was so thankful and considers this success as a miracle in an unexpected way.
“God gave us more than what most of us have prayed for. The “Hows of Us” is truly a miracle that came in the most unexpected way. Maraming salamat at napabilang tayo sa isang napakagandang pelikula na tumatak sa puso ng bawat isa.”
She wrote: “Sobra sobrang proud ako sa inyo. Nakakaiyak sa tuwa, sobrang ligaya ng puso ko.”

For the “Hows of Us” director, cast and the crew, the passion and hard work that they all put on the project was all worth it.
The internet went crazy when ABS-CBN‘s 2018 Christmas station ID “Family is Love” on Sunday, November 18, during ASAP Natin To.
There has been hundreds of stars seen in the video, which included, Vice Ganda, Coco Martin, Sarah Geronimo, Gary Valenciano, Piolo Pascual, and Regine Velasquez. Loveteams KathNiel, LizQuen, JaDine, JoshLia, and MayWard were also present in the video.
But as it seemed like every Kapamilya star has participated in the Station ID, there are still notable stars who were not sighted in the video.
Janno openly expressed his disappointment on Instagram. In his now-deleted post, he told everyone not to look for him at the Station ID because he was not even given the chance to participate.
“Throwback to Sept. 12 this year when I signed with @starmusic.ph. Naalala ko lang. Sila yata di ako naalala e.”
He also replied to one comment saying that maybe it’s because he’s not signed on a network contract, but as far as he knows, as long as you’re a recording artist, you’ll be included on the station ID.
When another netizen suggested for him to return to GMA-7, however, he told that the Kapuso network isn’t giving him any projects.
The Megastar was also not included in the Station ID. She is currently filming for her movie with Kathryn Bernardo and Richard Gomez, directed by Cathy Garcia-Molina.
Julia, who is filming for Doctors to the Barrio alongside Kean Cipriano, was also not sighted in the music video.
The Exes Baggage star was also absent.
Alessandra De Rossi
Alessandra was also not in the station ID. Her movie ‘Through Night and Day‘ is currently showing in cinemas.
DonKiss fans fans have noticed the absence of the loveteam’s other half Kisses.
Judy Ann Santos
Like the artists listed above, Judy Ann did not participate in this year’s ABS-CBN Station ID.

It’s nearly time for the ABS-CBN Ball and the fans aren’t the only ones excited about the grand Kapamilya gathering.
Among those thrilled to be attending the event is real-life couple James Reid and Nadine Lustre. It will be the pair’s first time to attend the ball as it used to be exclusive only to Star Magic talents.
They shared that they are ready to have fun with other ABS-CBN artists as they are going to sport matching black outfits.
Well known designer Michael Cinco was the one that made James’ suit while Nadine’s dress is made by Dubai-based designer Garimon Roferos.
The actress shared that she’s really enthusiastic about going to the Ball. “I’m so excited, because I wanna dress up.”
As they will be joining an estimated 500 artists attending the event, they were asked if they ever think of it as a “competition” of who will stand out the most.
James shared that since it’s their first time, the ball is really for them to enjoy and not mind what people will think. “The ball is really for us…and not what other people think.”
“We’re just there to look great and have fun,” Nadine added.
Other attendees will be Kathryn Bernardo and Daniel Padilla, MayMay Entrata and Edward Barber, Liza Soberano and Enrique Gil, among others.

Fans recently welcomed real-life couple Kathryn Bernardo and Daniel Padilla at the premiere of the intenational screening of their box office hit The Hows of Us.
They visited Indonesia and also held a premiere in Vietnam.
This was the first time that a Star Cinema film held a premiere in Indonesia so it was a huge honor for the two Kapamilya stars.
Aside from the red carpet screening of their movie, Kathryn and Daniel also held a meet and greet session for their growing fanbase in the said countries.
Their schedules are jampacked as it was also revealed that right after the international screenings of The Hows of Us, Daniel will head over to his solo concert rehearsals, and Kathryn will be filming with Sharon Cuneta and Richard Gomez for an upcoming movie.
“Sa mga Filipino and non-Filipino fans namin sa Jakarta and Vietnam, pupunta na kami diyan so sana ma-enjoy niyo ang movie.”
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.
FRONTROW has become one of the leading direct selling company and the Philippines and it continues to expand. With a set of famous celebrities endorsing it; Bianca Manalo, Cristine Reyes, and Tim Yap to name a few, Frontrow recently announced that another huge pair of celebrities will be joining their family.
KathNiel x FRONTROW
Yes, you got that right. The Teen King and Queen have finally joined the turf of Frontrow family. Launched at an event last February 25, Kathryn Bernardo and Daniel Padilla are proud to be part of the team. Even though the crowd went a little out of control, the two still stood their ground and showed how grateful they are to be part of Frontrow.
“We’re very happy for being here tonight. Thank you so much dahil sa pag-welcome sa amin bilang bagong family,” the La Luna Sangre actress said. “We’re very excited para sa future project namin and excited na ako na mai-promote sa mas maraming tao pa,” she continued.
On the other hand, Daniel said how thankful he is to the company, “Salamat sa pagbibigay sa amin ng pagkakataon na maging parte ng Frontrow, sa napakalaking pamilya na ito.”
RS Francisco, one of the owners of Frontrow, shared that he once worked with Kathryn in a teleserye. “Kung dati inaalagaan ko na siya kasi kinakandong-kandong ko nga, ganoon din ang ibibigay na alaga ng Frontrow kay Kathryn. Mas aalagaan pa namin siya.”
We still have to wait what these two are up to, but if it’s KathNiel, we surely are willing to wait, aren’t we?
It’s not every day we get to see Kapamilya and Kapuso Stars sharing one stage, right?
But Vivo Philippines has that power to make them unite for one big celebration. In the recent grand launch of their newest flagship V7 Plus at the Manila Marriott Hotel, the top 5 leading global smartphone brand takes on the biggest leap to date!
The V7+ is the Vivo’s newest pride in its line of leading-edge smartphones, elevating the brand’s leadership in selfie and smartphone display technology. With that being said, I think they have fulfilled that mission of empowering self-expression of the next generation.
Imagine? A 24MP front shooter camera that provides a selfie that has a quality of those shot using a DSLR! With superb 5.99″ all-screen display and 84.4% screen to body ratio, Vivo has clearly outdone themselves. Another cool spec of this new stunner is the Special Face Beauty 7.0–a setting that brightens up photos and evens out complexions so capturing a selfie moment is not a problem, especially in a dimly-lit environment. Portrait mode, on the other hand, blurs out backgrounds to highlight sharper selfie features. There’s more yet. Hold your breath!
This latest offering from Vivo has the dual-sim (Nano-SIM) and runs on Funtouch OS 3.2 based on Android 7.1 Nougat. Moreover, it rocks a Smart Split 3.0 feature, allowing users to check their messages, mails, among other things without interrupting the currently running app. The smartphone is powered by an octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 450 SoC coupled with 4 GB RAM + 64 GB of ROM expandable up to 256 GB.
The security feature is also augmented with its face ID access feature that allows one to unlock the phone with mere facial recognition. An eye-protection mode is also an option, a facet providing comfort and protection during longish phone usage.
The launch was graced by the brand’s growing endorsers. Their ambassadors include Darren Espanto, KZ Tandingan, Chie Filomeno, Maris Racal, Inigo Pascual, Jason Dy, Boyband PH, Julie Anne San Jose, Paul Salas, TJ Monterde, Andrea Brillantes, Tony Labrusca, Kira Ballinger, Barbie Forteza, Loisa Andalio, Kisses Delavin, Maymay Entrata and of course, the teen king and queen Kathryn Bernardo and Daniel Padilla.
You can have all of this for only Php. 17,990! A moment of silence here. You can get that Vivo flagship with that amount? A major dibs, perhaps!
What do you think guys? Share us your thoughts.
