OST for the Movie “Miss Q & A: Para Sa Magaganda Lang Ba Ang Love Life?” Out Now

INSIGHT 360 Films has released a teaser music video of its upcoming romantic comedy film "Miss Q & A: Para Sa Magaganda Lang Ba Ang Love Life?" starring Kakai Bautista and Zoren Legaspi.

Directed by award-winning filmmaker Lemuel Lorca and produced by Chris Cahilig, "Miss Q & A" tells the story of a romantically frustrated pageant trainer and public relations maverick (Bautista) who goes on a blind date with a handsome photographer (Legaspi). The screenplay was written by John Bedia in collaboration with Lorca and Cahilig.

The song "Halika," written and performed by emerging recording artist Seth Dungca, became the perfect accompaniment to the teaser music video. The music's warm and inviting instrumentation, combined with Dungca's soothing delivery, flawlessly captures the wistful feeling of being in the throes of a new love.

In the music video, we see love beginning to blossom between our two leads as they spend time at a theme park. With each attraction they visit, the sparks that fly between Kakai and Zoren's characters ignite powerful emotions they hadn't felt before.

Cahilig expresses the entire team's exhilaration in sharing this story with the Filipino audience. "Miss Q & A reminds us that love can happen for all regardless of age or appearance," says Cahilig. "It's what makes this film very special to all of us involved in its creation. After investing so much hard work and time in its production, we are incredibly excited about everyone finally seeing the finished product."

Miss Q & A marks the third feature film from Insight 360 Films. It comes in the wake of Echorsis, an award-winning horror comedy from 2016, and 2020's Mia, a romantic comedy film with an environmental message.

Cahilig is confident that the soon-to-be-released film will meet the stringent standards left by its predecessors. "With Miss Q & A, Insight 360 continues its push towards telling unique and compelling stories that Filipinos can relate to. We are very hopeful that Filipino audiences will enjoy this movie just as much as we enjoyed making it for them."

Seth Dungca's "Halika" is available for streaming on Spotify.

“Space Sweepers” Starring Song Joong-Ki and Kim Tae-Ri Available on Netflix on February 5

Netflix, the world's leading streaming entertainment service, confirmed the release date for its new film SPACE SWEEPERS as February 5th, 2020. The first teaser of Space Sweepers has also been revealed.

Set in 2092, spaceship Victory is one of the many that live off salvaging space debris. Crewed with a genius space pilot Tae-ho (Song Joong-Ki), a mysterious ex-space pirate Captain Jang (Kim Tae-Ri), a spaceship engineer Tiger Park (Jin Sun-Kyu), and a reprogrammed military robot Bubs (Yoo Hai-Jin), Spaceship Victory surpasses all other space sweepers. After successfully snatching a crashed space shuttle in the latest debris chase, Victory's crew finds a 7-year-old girl inside. They realize that she's the humanlike robot wanted by UTS Space Guards, and decide to demand ransom in exchange.

The teaser trailer reveals a glimpse of the spaceship crew's characters and their plans for exchanging a humanlike robot found from piles of space debris. With its stunning space action and thrills, Space Sweepers also show comical tension between these four extraordinary spaceship crews who do not harmonize with each other.

SPACE SWEEPERS, excitement-packed outer space sci-fi blockbuster, directed by Jo Sung-hee of A Werewolf Boy and Phantom Detective, will be available February 5th only on Netflix.
