Known for their grandiose storytelling and visual effects in Ice Age and Rio, Blue Sky Studios brings a world unlike any we’ve seen before in the 3D wonder Epic. The character MK in Epic (voiced by Amanda Seyfried) returns to her childhood home and reconnects with his father Prof. Bomba (Jason Sudeikis) who believes that out there are unseen people who live in the woods. She finally believes when she is magically transformed into the size of the people his father had been looking for all his life. Transported into the magical world of Leafmen where soldiers live to protect the forest, MK meets Nod (Josh Hutcherson), Ronin (Colin Farell) and Queen Tara (Beyonce). Together, she must unite with them in order to save the forest against the evil Boggans led by Mandrake (Christoph Waltz).
Yesterday was one of my most epic day to date because I finally met one of the world’s fashion icon and Hollywood A-Lister Sarah Jessica Parker up-close and personal. I was able to shook her hand and hug her tight and had a few exchanges with her. Thanks to SM Aura Premiere opening day (May 15, 2013) for inviting her to come to the Philippines and become the new face of SM Store! Yes, Ms. SJP she is SM Store’s brand ambassador now! How cool can SM and the Philippines get by having such one of the Hollywood A-Lister endorse a Filipino mall right?
I am absolutely missing my movie premiere nights lately. The last premiere I’ve attended was The Dark Knight Rises! Yes, that’s how long it was but this time I won’t miss Iron Man 3 for the world! I am a huge huge fan of Robert Downey Jr. a.k.a. Tony Stark a.k.a. the Iron Man. When I saw preview my heart just can’t help but skip faster than an F1 race car! Hahaha!
If destiny puts your path across “the one that got away” again, will you run for your life like you did the last time or will you take a chance?
I’ve been talking about Christine for the past few weeks here in my blog and her undying love for Jorgen whom she think is the one for her, but after their first and last encounter, nothing follows. In this first Jorgendipity video it looks like Christine got another chance to get more acquainted with Jorgen.
Who is Jorgen? Watch this video so you can finally get acquainted with the guy: http://youtu.be/dJOAwGLFeqs . You can also view the video on Facebook https://www.facebook.com/TheJorgenEffect/posts/441378715937624. Btw, this is the first of a series, so hopefully we get more kilig moments in the next coming video.
For now, what do you think will happen to this love story? If you were Christine what will you do?
If I was Christine, I will not waste my second chance. Who knows they are meant for each other after all. Or she can just forget about it and finally move on.
Stay gorgeous everyone!

Percy Jackson’s onscreen mom Catherine Keener puts on her maternal acting instincts once again in the big family 3D animated adventure “The Croods,” lending her voice along with Nicolas Cage, Emma Stone, Ryan Reynolds and Cloris Leachman.
From her numerous and notable works such as her Academy nominated roles in “Being John Malkovich” and “Capote,” to diverse movie roles in “Percy Jackson and the Olympians,” “40-Year-Old-Virgin,” “Out of Sight,” “Where the Wild Things Are,” “The Interpreter” and “S1mone”, Catherine Keener marks her debut voice role in the family romp “THE CROODS.”
Set to embody the cave mom Ugga in directors Kirk De Micco’s and Chris Sanders’ prehistoric adventure “The Croods,” Keener is wife to Grug (voiced by Cage) and earth’s original matriarch in the movie. Along with Grug, their daughter Eep (Stone), son Thunk (Clark Duke), mother Gran (Leachman) and baby, they search a new world as theirs become devastated by an earthquake. Along the way, they get help from a nomadic loner Guy (Reynolds) as they head out in search of a new life and plenty of adventure.
As the Croods experience the eventful changes that accompany Guy’s new ideas, Ugga scrambles to hold the group together. “In a family that sometimes acts a little nutty, she probably has her head screwed on a little tighter than the rest,” says Catherine Keener. “Ugga is loving, caring and a great mom, but at the same time she’s every bit as physically solid and tough as Grug. I think that she’s a classic film mother. I always feel a little resistance when I hear it’s the mom role because generally – and I’m stereotyping – it means there’s not a lot to her individuality. I’ve found Ugga to have more of that – I think she’s a little eccentric, and I think she was probably more evolved than the other cave women who came before her.”
Still, during their many years together raising their family, Ugga has always deferred to her husband’s authority. But a change in their housing situation triggers big changes in their relationship. “By the end of the story she’s the one who tells Grug he must change his thinking,” says Sanders.
“Their marriage and family life is not unlike those of today,” adds Keener. “We understand the Croods. The family discovers the universal truth that it’s difficult to change and to let go of things. But when they approach the new world, it’s stunning. And they literally have to jump off a cliff to get there. Life for everyone is very much like that. You need to take risks.”
When asked what she thinks is the universal message of “The Croods” – “Love. I know that it has a lot to do with family but it has to do with accepting one and another, and when you accept one another, you feel loved and you can love,” concludes Keener.
“The Croods” (3D) is a DreamWorks Animation and 20th Century Fox presentation to be distributed by Warner Bros. in cinemas nationwide on March 22.
Like Ugga, we all know that a mom’s schedule can get pretty crazy sometimes, let her try out this game from THE CROODS to unwind for a few minutes: http://www.thecroodsmovie-ph.com/memory

The highly-anticipated thriller “Stoker” starring Nicole Kidman, Mia Wasikowska and Matthew Goode tells of the bizarre coming-of-age of India (Wasikowska) as she enters womanhood written by Wentworth Miller and filmed by Park Chan-Wook.
Exquisitely sensitive, India has since exhibited an impassive demeanor which masks the deep feelings and heightened senses that only her father understood. While she initially finds herself mistrusting her uncle, he fascinates her as well and she begins to realize how much they have in common. As Charlie reveals himself to her little by little, India becomes increasingly infatuated with her charismatic relative and comes to realize that his arrival is no coincidence. With her uncle to guide her, she is about to fulfill her unusual destiny.
“She is an introverted girl confined in a suffocating house, unable to mix with anyone outside,” says director Park. “She is very rebellious as she bears the pains of adolescence. Her father’s death, her uncle’s arrival, as well as the conflict with her mother and her peers, bring her to a realization about her true identity.”
“Mia has the natural liveliness of a young woman,” he notes. “But she is also composed and has internal maturity. To portray a girl who is neither a woman nor a child, but at an awkward in-between stage, Mia was the most suitable actor. She has a level of restraint surprising for someone her age. She is almost completely still when she is acting. But when you watch her on film, you realize that all the necessary emotion is there. She is very subtle and skillful in a way that I expect only from older actors.”
For her part, the actress says she found much to like about the project. “It is such a strong piece of writing. Director Park and the creative team are brilliant. The story is something I have never seen before. The dynamic between the characters is quite mysterious. India is a really complex young woman. Without her father, she is completely disconnected from the world. She’s an outsider by nature, closed off from the rest of the world. She is still a young girl, but she’s becoming a woman with dreams and fantasies, although they’re of a different nature than other girls’ dreams.”
Working with Park was a constantly evolving, and always stimulating experience for the actress. “Even on weekends, we would meet for lunch and continue discussing the character and the story,” Wasikowska says. “Ideas would snowball, becoming more and more complex and interesting. During shooting, he let us sit for long moments in silence where seemingly not much was happening, but there was always strong underlying tension. That approach was perfect for this material.”
Stoker opens in cinemas March 1, 2013 from 20th Century Fox to be distributed by Warner Bros.
I’m very much intrigued with the story, I always like psycho-thriller kinda movies. How about you would you like to watch Stoker?
