JULIANNE MOORE IS GOOD AT BEING BAD IN “KINGSMAN: THE GOLDEN CIRCLE”
Academy award-winning actress Julianne Moore is at her best in being bad as the new villain in “Kingsman: The Golden Circle”, sequel to the worldwide hit and unparalleled spy action movie “Kingsman: The Secret Service”.
Returning to direct is Matthew Vaughn along with original cast Colin Firth, Taron Egerton, Mark Strong and Sophie Cookson, “Kingsman: The Golden Circle” also features new cast members Halle Berry, Channing Tatum, Pedro Pascal and Jeff Bridges. This time, the headquarters are destroyed by a mysterious crime syndicate, and Eggsy must enlist the help of their larger-than-life counterparts, Statesman, to track down the psychopathic villain behind the attack.
A guaranteed and spectacular entertainment, the movie packs a subversively funny, stylish and unique action event that expands the Kingsman universe in the most unexpected ways. For Matthew Vaughn, a good villain is essential to the success of a Kingsman movie. And after raising the bar with Samuel L. Jackson’s loud, lisping Richmond Valentine in the first movie, Vaughn was determined to come up with another character audiences would love to see being good at being bad.
Enter Poppy Adams in “Kingsman: The Golden Circle,” an exiled American crime lord now living in her own personal theme park, Poppyland, found in the wilds of Cambodia. And to play this larger-than-life lunatic, whose grand plans for the world bring her into direct conflict with Kingsman and the Statesman, Vaughn turned to the wonderful Julianne Moore. Long considered one of the world’s greatest actors, Moore is endlessly watchable and incredibly versatile, notching up an array of stunning performances in the likes of “Boogie Nights,” “Magnolia,” the “Hunger Games” series,” The Lost World: Jurassic Park” and “Still Alice,” the movie for which she finally won a long overdue Best Actress Oscar.
Moore shares her thoughts on her outrageous character in the movie, “No matter how outrageous her antics are, they’re normal in her world. She’s the only character in her world, so she doesn’t know. She’s a megalomaniac in the way that all great villains are. One movie I loved so much growing up as a kid was the original Superman… watching Gene Hackman play Lex Luthor alongside his girlfriend sidekick, they were so funny and so real, but also true villains. That’s a tone I thought of a lot when I was making this.”
Opening nationwide on September 20 in Philippine cinemas, “Kingsman: The Golden Circle” is from 20th Century Fox to be distributed by Warner Bros. Also available in IMAX screens nationwide.
DYLAN O’BRIEN STARS AS LATEST BREED OF HITMAN-HERO IN “AMERICAN ASSASSIN”
A one-of-a-kind American assassin possessed of savage skills and a ferocious drive for payback is born in this non-stop action-espionage thriller “American Assassin” starring Dylan O’Brien (Maze Runner franchise) in the title role. Rooted in the raw reality of today’s hard-to-detect enemies invisible black ops, high-level surveillance, portable nukes and murky agendas, the movie is athe story of a 21st Century counterterrorist spymaster-in-the-making who, in a world of new rules, breaks all the old molds.
Based on the mega-bestselling book series by the late Vince Flynn, “American Assassin” introduces film audiences to one of contemporary fiction’s most popular heroes working in the shadows: CIA super-agent Mitch Rapp. When Rapp’s promising future is torn apart by a shocking burst of violence, it ignites his career as a clandestine warrior on the frontlines of the Age of Terror. Now he must discover how to turn his blistering rage into fuel for hunting those who would destroy others’ dreams – in a world where clarity isn’t easy to come by.
“American Assassin” traces Rapp’s origins from heartbroken fiancé to cunning renegade to off-thecharts CIA trainee to his first must-not-fail mission on the trail of 15 kilos of stolen plutonium. The film brings together rising star Dylan O’Brien – who creates the no-holds-barred Rapp for the first time on screen – with Oscar® nominee and Golden Globe® winner Michael Keaton as legendary CIA trainer Stan Hurley. Seeking to right his own devastating mistakes, Hurley prepares Rapp to join Orion, the most deeply concealed network within the CIA. But even as Hurley teaches Rapp that spy work can’t be personal, Rapp makes personal connections that help him penetrate a web of mercenaries, arms dealers, extremists and an angry ex-agent not unlike himself, all colluding to spark a new World War.
The story takes off with propulsive speed, with one white-knuckle action sequence topping the last, brought to life by a team of filmmakers who know the territory: director Michael Cuesta (“Homeland”), screenwriters Stephen Schiff (“The Americans”), Michael Finch (“The November Man”), Edward Zwick & Marshall Herskovitz (“The Last Samurai,” “Jack Reacher: Never Go Back”) and producers Lorenzo di Bonaventura (“Salt,” “RED”) and Nick Wechsler (“The Road,” “Under The Skin”). Cuesta creates the film as a rough but riveting transcontinental journey that careens from Washington D.C. to Istanbul to Rome to the deck of a U.S. aircraft carrier…and right into the moral gray zones of our world in 2017.
Says Cuesta: “This is the origin story of Mitch Rapp – as he transforms from a man seeking personal
vengeance to a professional who operates with a fierce sense of justice. I’m excited to have fans of the books and everyone else get to see Dylan O’Brien become Mitch. Dylan has a very contemporary appeal as an action star for this millennia, and I think audiences are going to love his interaction with Michael Keaton who nails Hurley’s tough-guy persona like a 21st Century John Wayne.”
“American Assassin” opens September 13 in cinemas from Pioneer Films.
MIND-BENDING AND THRILLING SUPERNATURAL MOVIE “THE VAULT” OPENS SEPT. 6
An interesting fusion of action and the supernatural comes alive in “The Vault” where the audience will be taken into a thrilling hell ride -hardcore, horrifying, and heartbreaking – driven by a bank robbery, vengeful ghosts and three siblings who must learn to trust each other or die.
Starring multi-faceted James Franco along with Clint’s daughter, fast-rising star Francesca Eastwood and Netflix’s “Orange is the New Black” star Taryn Manning, “The Vault” is set in modern day – inside a timeworn bank in a small, forgotten, working-class city. It could be any city. The building is a relic from another time – a time of opulence that allowed for marble floors and lofted ceilings – like a cathedral designed for the worship of wealth and yet haunted by the victims of that same materialism. At its heart, the movie is a loyalty play. Three estranged siblings are caught in a desperate situation that forces the resolution of life-long conflicts. This day will make or break them. It’s love and a family bond versus fear and betrayal, forgiveness versus revenge, trust versus suspicion and this bank is the nightmarish battleground.
“The Vault” demanded vulnerable, truthful performances. This is a nonstop thrill ride. It opens with a gritty, heart-pounding bank heist. And as the siblings head for the underground vault, the story quickly ramps to a fast-paced, psychotic trip into darkness. It’s also a real pressure cooker, as most of the movie is tightly contained inside the Century Trust Bank itself and especially the dark, terrifying, labyrinthine basement below. The stakes couldn’t be higher. That containment – that claustrophobia – is key to a terrifying experience and will drive almost ever creative decision. When the violence does it, it will not be stylised or celebratory, it will be realistic and brutal. It will hurt,” shares director Dan Bush.
“The Vault” goes beyond the typical bank heist story and gives audiences a run for their lives. Director Dan Bush pegs it as “The Town” meets “The Grudge”.
The film co-stars Q’orianka Kilncher (Sky, Hostiles), Clifton Collins Jr. (Pacific Rim), and Michael Milford (Deserted, Adolescence).
“The Vault is set to hit cinemas nationwide on September 6 and is distributed by Axinite Digicinema.
AWARD-WINNING ACTORS CHARLIZE THERON AND JAVIER BARDEM IN “THE LAST FACE” – OPENS SEPT. 13 EXCLUSIVE AT AYALA MALLS CINEMAS
For decades politics, power and corrupt governments scrambling for mineral rich territories, have given rise to civil war in Africa and created conflict zones where the scale of destruction is now
unimaginable. Hundreds and thousands of people have been slaughtered in military coups, are emotionally destroyed through rape and gender-based violence, and have been victims of unspeakable human rights violations. The civilians who have managed to survive the decimation have been forced to flee to safety from rebels sewing terror in their regions, making up more than 9 million refugees and internally displaced people without resources to form a new life. It is a suffering that knows no end. The motion picture “The Last Face” is brought to the screen by a group of filmmakers and actors who coincidentally all happen to be humanitarians in their own right and unquestionably this resonance was their motivation to work with very the difficult material.
“The Last Face” centers around a love affair between Dr. Wren Petersen (Academy Award® winner, Charlize Theron), the director of an international aid organization and Dr. Miguel Leon (Academy Award® winner, Javier Bardem), a relief-aid doctor.
Set against the devastating backdrop of war-torn Liberia, Miguel and Wren must find a way to keep their relationship alive in extraordinarily difficult conditions battling their mutual passion for the value of life matched by the intensity of their diametrically opposed opinions on how best to solve the conflict that surrounds them. Directed by Two-time Academy Award® winner Sean Penn, The Last Face also stars Primetime Emmy® nominee Jared Harris, and celebrated French actors Jean Reno and Adèle Exarchopoulos.
An activist himself and champion of refugees, Javier Bardem co-produced and starred in “Sons of the Clouds: The Last Colony,” a film documenting how the colonization of the Western Sahara has left nearly 200,000 people living in refugee camps. Palmieri shares that Bardem had always been involved, off and on, with Erin when she was going to direct, “it was a passion project for Javier, and when it was coming together he contacted me.”
The development process of getting the picture off the ground was just 13 months, and in the
meantime Javier Bardem, already on board, was speaking about actors to play opposite him in the role of Wren. First and foremost on the list happened to be Charlize Theron, who as well as being an
extraordinary actor, is also a humanitarian who runs her own NGO that helps AIDs orphans in South Africa. She was a perfect contrast, both physically and emotionally to Javier.
Experience the emotional story of hope when “The Last Face” opens exclusively in Ayala Malls Cinemas starting September 13.

All seems normal until the day turns unexpectedly fast and dizzying as he’s confronted with a barrel of a gun and two on-edge sisters who are robbing his bank in order to help their brother pay off his debts.
At its heart, “THE Vault” is a loyalty play. Three estranged siblings are caught in a desperate situation that forces the resolution of life-long conflicts. This day will make or break them. It’s love and a family bond versus fear and betrayal, forgiveness versus revenge, trust versus suspicion and this bank is the nightmarish battleground.
The Dillon sisters don’t necessarily like each other, but they’ll always look out for each other. Leah, ex-military, has just picked up her career criminal sister, Vee, from prison, when they learn that their troubled older brother, Michael, has burned down a warehouse owned by a notorious gangster. The siblings find themselves on the hook for an outrageous sum of money and have only two weeks to get it or Michael will die. So with nowhere to turn, they decide to rob the town’s biggest bank. The FBI gets wind of the bank heist and surrounds the building as they go down the basement vault. But the bank’s basement hides a terrible secret and before long, the Dillons must choose whether to face the police outside or the terrible supernatural forces in the vault below.
Slashfilm.com calls “The Vault”, “like a bank robbery twist on Don’t Breathe, a film that similarly started off in another genre”
