Pokwang to Work with American Actors in Movie 'Ms Edsa Woolworth'

Posted on April 12, 2014 | 7:25 PM

After winning international critical acclaim for her powerful performance in the drama, “A Mother’s Story”, which garnered 18 FAMAS nominations in 2012, actress-comedienne Pokwang was tapped anew by TFC@theMovies to star in its second film offering, Ms Edsa Woolworth.

According to film director John-D Lazatin, who also received a FAMAS nomination for his direction of “A Mother’s Story,” shooting for the new family romantic comedy film will begin this May in the U.S.

Asked why Pokwang was chosen again to star in TFC’s new movie, Lazatin replied: “Pokwang is one of those rare gifted, versatile actresses who is very relatable.  Moviegoers identify or empathize with her characters.  Her on- and off-screen personas are also very positive that she’s able to inject humor and lightness even in the face of most dire challenges in life.  She projects the character of our overseas Filipinos that TFC serves worldwide.”

While production remains tight-lipped about the exciting film project, Lazatin shared that Ms Edsa Woolworth will have a strong Filipino and American cast.  

A bit of reveal about the title: Pokwang plays Edsa (short for Epifania de los Santos) whose mother remarried an American named Frank Woolworth. The comedy focuses on the interracial relationships of three adult Filipinos taking care of their white stepfather.

The film will be released later in 2014 as part of TFC’s 20th anniversary celebration.  More information on Ms Edsa Woolworth coming out soon on tfc-usa.com/AtTheMovies.

Piolo Pascual and Toni Gonzaga Grace US Premiere of Starting Over Again

Posted on February 14, 2014 | 6:00 PM

Fresh from a recent Manila premiere that was packed with fans and a record-breaking opening day gross of P25 million, the Philippines’s “Ultimate Heartthrob” Piolo Pascual and actress-singer-host Toni Gonzaga, one of the hottest female triple threats in Philippine showbiz today, will fly almost 8,000 miles to meet their fans in the San Francisco Bay Area for the U.S. premiere of the romantic comedy, Starting Over Again.

Piolo Pascual and Toni Gonzaga Grace US Premiere of Starting Over Again

The premiere, a Valentine’s Day offering from ABS-CBN Star Cinema and TFC@TheMovies, is set for February 15, Saturday, with 1:00pm and 6:30pm screenings at historic Fox Theatre in Redwood City.

Starting Over Again has generated huge buzz because of the chemistry of the two lead stars and the numerous positive reviews by critics, bloggers and fans who are raving over the brilliantly directed movie by the award-winning Olivia M. Lamasan, director of international Filipino blockbuster films from Star Cinema like Milan, In My Life, In the Name of Love and The Mistress, to name a few.  The screenplay was by Carmi Raymundo who wrote the recent Kim Chiu-Xian Lim blockbuster, Bride for Rent and other hits like My Amnesia Girl and It Takes A Man and a Woman.

“It’s been a while since we’ve held a movie premiere here in the U.S. and we thought that bringing the much anticipated first big screen collaboration of two of the industry’s biggest stars, one of the most successful Filipina directors of all time, and one screenwriter who has been on a blockbuster roll would make for an exciting Valentine’s Day gift to thousands of fans who want to see the movie plus Piolo and Toni in person,” said John-D Lazatin, ABS-CBN Global Head of Theatricals.

Indeed, there are great expectations for Starting Over Again from the four stellar heavyweights but they deliver in this movie.  Toni plays Ginny – bubbly, brilliant and driven – who, as a student in Architecture romantically pursues Marco (Piolo), a professor.  Eyebrows may be raised but the two genuinely fall in love, until one day, Ginny left for no apparent reason, breaking Marco’s heart into a thousand pieces.  Years later, their paths cross again: Ginny has the successful career that she dreamed of while Marco is now a chef… with a new ladylove in Patty (played by the exquisite Iza Calzado).  Seems like they are all happy.  But wait… Ginny wants Marco back. The journey of second chances begin with Ginny chasing Marco again.  But will this have a happy ending or will it end again in heartbreak?

Joining Piolo, Toni and Iza in this not-your-usual romantic comedy are young but amazing talents Joross Gamboa, Bryan Santos, Edgar Allan Guzman, Cai Cortez and Beauty.

On April 16, ABS-CBN Corporation and TFC are unveiling yet another milestone teleserye – Kung Ako’y Iiwan Mo (If You Will Leave Me) via Channel 2 and TFC worldwide.  The very first overseas Filipino-serye or OFserye, Kung Ako’y Iiwan Mo tells the story of two individuals who traversed miles to be with each other and was mainly shot in Doha where the OFserye was set.  

Doha in Qatar is in the Middle East, home to the third largest group of Filipinos outside the Philippines.  Interestingly, while several movies have been made to tell the story of overseas Filipinos in the region like Dubai, a Star Cinema movie released in 2005, this is the first time that a teleserye has been shot in Dubai, UAE and in Doha, Qatar.  

The OFserye tells of two children (Jake and Shaina) of two best friends, played by Christopher de Leon and Phillip Salvador, both overseas Filipinos who served as inspiration to their kids’ chosen path. 

When Phillip Salvador saves Christopher from imminent death, the latter feels responsible for the welfare of Phillip’s family until he himself dies. Fate seems to always be bringing Jake and Shaina together as they fall for each other, and then torn apart with the presence of another girl played by Bangs Garcia.

On April 12 at 9 p.m., TFC Middle East, the international arm of ABS-CBN Corporation in the Middle East will unveil the first OF-serye in Al Majlis Hall, Sheraton Doha Resort and Convention Hotel.

The red carpet premiere will be graced by the lead stars Shaina Magdayo, Jake Cuenca and Bangs Garcia. Tickets are priced at QR 100 for VIP and QR 50 for regular seats.  In the premiere, attendees will preview the making of the teleserye and the preview of the first few episodes which will cover the first week of the airing.

Kung Ako’y Iiwan Mo will air in the Philippines via Channel 2 beginning April 16 as well as internationally via TFC especially in the Middle East daily for about three months.
