New Trailer for Epic Disaster Movie "Twisters" Takes Audiences on an Adrenaline-Fueled Thrill Ride

When one of the most destructive forces of nature looms close, a team of intrepid storm-chasers run into the center of it all. “Twisters” stars Daisy Edgar-Jones, Glen Powell, Anthony Ramos, and Brandon Perea, as characters who fight for their lives to predict, capture, and possibly tame, the immense power of tornadoes.

Prepare for the ride of your life as “Twisters” storms across Philippine cinemas on July 17.

About Twisters:

From the producers of the Jurassic, Bourne and Indiana Jones series comes “Twisters,” a current-day chapter of the 1996 blockbuster, “Twister.” Directed by Lee Isaac Chung, the Oscar-nominated writer-director of “Minari,” “Twisters” stars Golden Globe nominee Daisy Edgar-Jones (“Where the Crawdads Sing,” “Normal People”) and Glen Powell (“Anyone But You,” “Top Gun: Maverick”) as opposing forces who come together to try to predict, and possibly tame, the immense power of tornadoes.

Edgar-Jones stars as Kate Cooper, a former storm chaser haunted by a devastating encounter with a tornado during her college years, who now studies storm patterns on screens safely in New York City. She is lured back to the open plains by her friend, Javi, to test a groundbreaking new tracking system. There, she crosses paths with Tyler Owens (Powell), the charming and reckless social-media superstar who thrives on posting his storm-chasing adventures with his raucous crew, the more dangerous the better.

“Twisters” also stars Golden Globe nominee Anthony Ramos (“In the Heights”) as Javi, alongside David Corenswet (upcoming “Superman: Legacy”), and features an exciting new cast, including Brandon Perea (“Nope”), Sasha Lane (“American Honey”), Daryl McCormack (“Peaky Blinders”), Kiernan Shipka (“Chilling Adventures of Sabrina”), Nik Dodani (“Atypical”) and Golden Globe winner Maura Tierney (“Beautiful Boy”).

In cinemas July 17, “Twisters” is distributed in the Philippines by Warner Bros. Pictures, a Warner Bros. Discovery company.

From being a humble 'kontesera,' Bukidnon's teen belter Jillian Pamat of Coach Bamboo's Kamp Kawayan has gone a long way in reaching her dreams as a singer after becoming the grand champion of "The Voice Teens" Season 3.

During the show's two-night Final Showdown last May 18–19, Jillian impressed the coaches and crowd with her string of performances, from her duet act of "Tatsulok" with Bamboo and a showstopping rendition of Sarah Geronimo's trending hit "Ikot-Ikot," to her ballad twist on the 1994 rock classic "Tag-Ulan" - managing to secure the most audience votes among the Final 3 with 53.09%. She then is followed by MarTeam's Steph Lacuata as first runner-up with 24.99% and Team Supreme hopeful Yen Victoria as its third placer with 21.91%.

Anya Taylor-Joy is ferocious as Furiosa in “Furiosa: A Mad Max Saga”

There’s something resolute, highly determined, and ultimately ferocious that’s in her. And that’s seen on the screen,director George Miller describes watching Anya Taylor-Joy in action as the titular character in Furiosa: A Mad Max Saga, the latest installment in the epic post-apocalyptic Mad Max franchise.

Watch the trailer here: https://youtu.be/1Qt4Z25kdiE

Miller admires the way that Taylor-Joy added to Furiosa’s character, forming it with her own understanding of the vicious warrior. “Anya was a wonderful collaborator whose contributions added to the depth of the character, making it her own. There's no question that she brought something that’s ferocious to the movie - whether it’s in her or not, she found that in herself. And it’s something that I sensed in her work previous to working with her.

Taylor-Joy was in Miller’s radar early on in her career, and her acting prowess from her previous films stood out to the director. “I’d seen Anya in The VVitch, way back in the time Fury Road came out - she was very young then - and then I saw her in an early cut that Edgar Wright showed me of Last Night in Soho. When I saw her on the screen, I thought, “There’s something very compelling about her,”” Miller recalls. “Very, very present, fierce and resolute, even in the character, singing and dancing. She had those skills already, which I think is a really good marker of a skilled actor. They have a lot of precision, physically, and therefore I think ultimately emotionally.

Taylor-Joy felt a very close connection to Furiosa, and that’s how she approached the character during filming. “ Furiosa, the second I read it, I was like, “Okay, this is going to be one of those ones where it’s very difficult to separate yourself, you’re going to feel like you are in these scenes and it’s going to feel real.” So, I don’t really think I had much of a choice in terms of my artistry in making it my own. It was just very real for me.

Training for Furiosa: A Mad Max Saga also made Taylor-Joy feel like she’s the strongest she’s ever been. “What’s crazy about it is I definitely did more training in the year prior to the movie than I was able to fit in while making the film. And yet, I was stronger than I’ve ever been, because throwing yourself around a War Rig requires every muscle in your body. My workout became coming to work and doing the scenes, and I felt quite proud of my strength during that time.”

Overall, Taylor-Joy just feels hopeful and grateful for being a part of something epic, or something even more, in her words. “ It’s pretty intense. This film is so beyond the word epic that I actually can’t think of a word for it. Epic in scale, epic in ambition, epic in emotion, epic in action. It is a huge movie, and I think there is something for everyone. I think we’re going to take you on an insane ride that you will be exhausted by the end of it, but also relieved, because we give you that catharsis,” she says. “And I really hope for young women to come to believe that you are stronger than you think you are, you have more power than you think you have, and you can do a lot with that. There is just consistent pressure, but we’re gonna get there.”

Catch Furiosa: A Mad Max Saga as it arrives in Philippine cinemas on May 22. Pre-order your tickets at www.furiosa.com.ph .

About “Furiosa: A Mad Max Saga”

As the world fell, young Furiosa is snatched from the Green Place of Many Mothers and falls into the hands of a great Biker Horde led by the Warlord Dementus. Sweeping through the Wasteland, they come across the Citadel presided over by The Immortan Joe. While the two Tyrants war for dominance, Furiosa must survive many trials as she puts together the means to find her way home.

This all-new original, standalone action adventure was directed by George Miller, script by Miller and “Mad Max: Fury Road” co-writer Nico Lathouris. The film was produced by Miller and his longtime partner, Oscar-nominated producer Doug Mitchell (“Mad Max: Fury Road,” “Babe”), under their Australian-based Kennedy Miller Mitchell banner.

Starring Anya Taylor-Joy in the title role, Chris Hemsworth, Alyla Browne and Tom Burke. In cinemas May 22, 2024, “Furiosa: A Mad Max Saga” is distributed in the Philippines by Warner Bros. Pictures, a Warner Bros. Discovery company.

Meet the Pawsome Characters of “The Garfield Movie” Starring Chris Pratt, Nicholas Hoult, Samuel L. Jackson

Can’t wait to go on an exciting outdoor adventure with Garfield in The Garfield Movie

Get to know the pawsome characters (and Jon!) in the all-new all-animated movie about everyone’s favorite Monday-hating, lasagna-loving indoor cat.

Watch the trailer: https://youtu.be/HnGusjY49-A

GARFIELD (Voiced by Chris Pratt)

Garfield is a cat… a big lazy cat… a quick-witted comedic cat… a non-exercising-lasagna-loving cat, a prone-to-food-coma cat. Garfield is the furred distillation of humanity’s collective desire to do absolutely nothing… all day long… like we all wish we could. An icon of do-nothingness, Garfield hates Mondays and work. Food is his love language, and he speaks it fluently, along with its many dialects. He hates spiders and loves coffee. Contrary to popular belief, Garfield frequently exercises. His favorite workouts are walking from the fridge to the couch, turning over in the bed, lifting his fork and chewing food. He lives a perfectly pampered life in the burbs with his owner Jon and unpaid intern, Odie.

Chris Pratt was the filmmakers’ first choice to voice Garfield, and they even tested the idea by animating Garfield to a sound clip of Pratt speaking on a talk show. “I guess Chris just captures that laziness and sarcasm in his natural voice,” jokes director Mark Dindal.

JON ARBUCKLE (Voiced by Nicholas Hoult)

Jon’s life changed for the better when a cute, orange tabby kitten interrupted his lonely dinner at Mamma Leoni’s restaurant on a dark, rainy night. Jon was immediately smitten by the cat who seemed to have a unique talent for eating Italian food. Happily, Jon adopted Garfield and moved them into a two-bed/two-bath in the suburbs… or maybe Garfield adopted Jon, rescuing him from his lonely life. He’s a cartoonist by trade and works from home, often falling asleep at his draftsman table. In Jon’s opinion, he, Garfield and Odie form the perfect family.

Nicholas Hoult, who plays Jon, is incredibly talented,” says producer Andrew Kosove. “Hoult’s performance is both funny and empathetic.”

ODIE (Barked by Harvey Guillén)

Odie is a loyal, sweet, and free-spirited dog who loves everyone, especially his lazy companion Garfield. He’s a faithful friend who is willing to do anything for Garfield except let him fail. Odie has a keen sense of foresight and introspection, often finding the inherent irony or absurdity in every situation. 

Odie is Garfield’s emotional ballast, anchor and center. Underestimated, but never undervalued, Odie is the glue which holds the family together – and because Garfield is ill-equipped for his outdoor adventure, thank goodness he has Odie to do all the work!

VIC (Voiced by Samuel L. Jackson)

Garfield’s biological father, Vic, is a street hustling larger-than-life cat who has charmed and conned his way through life. He’s the kind of cat who is always on the move. As his former mentor once told him, “Don’t let yourself get attached to anything you are not willing to run out on in thirty seconds flat if you smell a dog or pound worker around the corner.” He disappeared from Garfield’s life long ago under mysterious circumstances. What you can count on with Vic is that you can’t count on him. Wherever he goes, mischief, mayhem and adventure are sure to follow.

To bring all of that to the role required an actor with the skill of Samuel L. Jackson. Producer Broderick Johnson notes that Jackson – like all of the great comedic actors – is adept at combining humor and heart. “Sam brings comedy, but also tremendous emotion, and he balances them very successfully – as well as anybody in the business,” he says.

JINX (Voiced by Hannah Waddingham)

Jinx journeyed from her homeland of Britain to make it big in show business only to be met with the cold hard truth of failure. She fell on hard times and ended up on the street where she became part of Vic’s alley cat criminal crew. During one of their many heists, robbing a dairy named Lactose Farms, she was caught and sent to the pound. She felt betrayed by Vic. The hard prison life turned her simmering bitterness into a raging fire of anger. With the help of fellow canine convicts, Roland and Nolan, she escaped to collect what she’s owed by Vic.

Says director Dindal of Hannah Waddingham, “I think the performance she gave inspired the animation and made her a rich, sympathetic villain. Of course, she can’t succeed, but you understand where she’s coming from.

OTTO (Voiced by Ving Rhames)

If you drank milk or ate cheese in Garfield’s home state, it’s a sure bet you probably did it with a smiling bull named Otto watching over you. Otto and his soul-mate Ethel were the cow mascots for Lactose Farms, until they lost their jobs due to automation and corporate greed. He was put out to pasture and now spends his days grazing on a nearby hill just to get a peek at his beloved Ethel who is exhibited at a petting zoo. The years have softened his hide but hardened his resolve to rescue her. When Garfield, Vic and Odie need help breaking into Lactose Farms, Otto may be their only hope.

When the character was written, we didn’t think of anyone other than Ving Rhames to play Otto, the lovelorn bull,” says producer Kosove.

ROLAND AND NOLAN (Voiced by Brett Goldstein and Bowen Yang)

Roland and Nolan are Jinx’s henchdogs, her canine lackeys, her mutt flunkeys. They formed an alliance of convenience with Jinx when all three were fellow inmates at the maximum-security pound. Roland is a rotund Shar Pei with a South London accent who claims that “he never grew into his folds.” 

Nolan is a narrow-shouldered whippet whose frenzied attention span is only calmed by the gentle embrace of Roland’s flappy furry folds.

MARGE (Voiced by Cecily Strong)

Marge is Lactose Farms’ head of security. With an accent that gives away her Minnesota upbringing, she makes it clear that they take their dairy extremely seriously in the upper Midwest, dontcha know. Tough and shrewd, Marge does everything she can to protect Lactose Farms from intruders. And if anybody gets hurt along the way… well, Marge would just say that you can’t run a dairy farm without breaking some eggs.

Cecily came in and created the voice of that character in a unique way,” says producer Kosove.

In The Garfield Movie, the world-famous Garfield is about to have a wild outdoor adventure! After an unexpected reunion with his long-lost father – scruffy street cat Vic – Garfield and his canine friend Odie are forced from their perfectly pampered life into joining Vic in a hilarious, high-stakes heist.

Join Garfield and his friends on their crazy adventure when The Garfield Movie, from Columbia Pictures, local office of Sony Pictures Releasing International, opens in cinemas May 29.
