Cine Lokal Celebrates All Kinds of Love in February

Happy Love Month is just around the corner…♥♥♥

This February, Cine Lokal features a set of incredible films exploring this concepts which are all set to screen in eight (8) SM Cinemas.

Included in the lineup is a 2016 Sinag Maynila suspense thriller film “Lila” directed by Gino M. Santos starring Janine Gutierrez, Sherry Lara and Enchong Dee.

Followed by the romantic drama film “4 Days” directed by Adolf Alix Jr. starring Sebastian Castro and Mikoy Morales. 

4 Days tells the story of two college friends who slowly realize they mean more to each other than either had initially realized. 4 Days joins Derek and Mark in the days leading up to Valentine’s Day over the course of a few years- charting the blossoming of a friendship in to something much more enduring as time goes on – and challenging both to question who they thought they were and who they truly want to me. Painting a moving picture of how an abiding friendship can sometimes lead to love – and how we sometimes have to wrestle with our own demons to find their true self, 4 Days is achingly romantic and delicate.

Directed by Adolf Alix Jr.

Mystical Action “Kung Fu Yoga” Is Latest Jackie Chan Starrer

In time for the Chinese New Year 2017 ushering in The Year of the Rooster, our ever favorite and legendary martial artist and natural comedian Jackie Chan has collaborated with his consistent director Stanley Tong and came up with the Sino-Indian movie, “Kung Fu Yoga”. What an exciting film title and premise right?
kfAlthough this is not the first it ever happened Jackie has previously starred opposite Bollywood actors. And now he’s back with some of India’s superstars like Malika Shewarat, Disha Patani and Sonu Sood who have very high regard and respect to Jackie’s iconic reputation.
jackie-chan-as-jack-1-1aarif-rahman-as-jones-1The film follows celebrated Chinese archeology professor, Jack (played by Chan) as he searches for ancient treasures scattered all around the world.aarif-rahman-02As with a Jackie Chan film, expect lots of fun and humorous moments in “Kung Fu Yoga” plus JC’s signature action and death-defying stunts and a lot of action-packed road scenes. 
06-amyra-dasturReportedly spending 65 million, this film that took a year to make will take you almost around the world, I am personally excited for the scenes filmed in Iceland, Dubai, most parts of China and of course mystical India. Jackie will even sway and dance to a famous Bollywood number choreographed by Farah Khan. 
jackie-chan-as-jack-2Kung Fu Yoga also stars Lay Zhang and Aarif Rhaman so watch out for their action scenes and hilarious moments with Jackie. Perfect movie date bonding with family and friends. Will definitely not miss this! Big JC fan here ☺ Love you, Jackieeeeeee!!!  ♥♥

Save the date, here in the Philippines, Kung Fu Yoga opens in theaters nationwide February 1st and distributed by Star Cinema.


How Strange is “Doctor Strange” Movie?

I never expected for Doctor Strange movie to become a big hit and opening right before Halloween weekend here in the Philippines. In fact I even had a special block screening invite which I was not able to attend (aww shucks!) due to schedule conflict and terrible city traffic!

And so according to a Wikipedia quote, Doctor Strange is a 2016 American superhero film featuring the Marvel Comics character of the same name, produced by Marvel Studios and distributed by Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures. It is the fourteenth film of the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU). The film is directed by Scott Derrickson, who wrote the screenplay with C. Robert Cargill from a story by the duo and Jon Spaihts, and stars Benedict Cumberbatch, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Rachel McAdams, Benedict Wong, Michael Stuhlbarg, Benjamin Bratt,Scott Adkins, Mads Mikkelsen, and Tilda Swinton. In Doctor Strange, surgeon Stephen Strange learns the mystic arts from the Ancient One after a career-ending car accident.

I have also seen lots of people in the mall cinemas trooping this movie so it must be really that GOOD!
Looking forward to watching this latest hit from Marvel Studios in the coming days…

Tell and share me what you think of it?
