Channing Tatum Masters Physical Comedy in "The Lost City" Showing in Philippines Theaters on April 20

Channing Tatum takes on the role of Dash/Alan, the strikingly handsome model who graces the covers of Loretta Sage’s (Sandra Bullock) romance novels, in Paramount Pictures’ new romantic adventure The Lost City (in Philippine cinemas April 20).

Watch the featurette “Leeches Scene” at

Dash is machismo personified: handsome, debonaire, smart, and courageous. But his real-life alter ego, Alan, is, when we meet him, not Dash. But at his core Alan is honest, dependable, and loyal, and against all odds, becomes the hero he always envisioned Dash to be.

Dash is a swashbuckling character who rides in on the white horse or swings in on a vine and saves the day,” says Channing Tatum. “Alan is the farthest thing from that, but it’s not from lack of trying. I think Alan was a little embarrassed when he first got the modeling job, but then he had an epiphany and realized what a beautiful opportunity he had in playing this character who brings joy to so many people. What nobler job is there than the ability to make people happy?

Alan’s not totally crazy,” Tatum continues. “He doesn’t really believe he is Dash, but he’d like to believe he has some of those qualities, especially the fact that he has such a good heart.”

For Sandra Bullock, Tatum was the perfect foil. “Channing is so self-deprecating; there’s nothing about him that’s ego driven, which works for the role of Alan because he is such an innocent,” she says. “He is wide-eyed and sweet. Not many people can play that kind of a guileless, open person, but Channing had such comedic intuition about Alan.

Channing is a physical comedian who uses his body to convey the joke. We connected at once because that’s how I operate. It’s so nice to have a partner you’re comfortable with, and who has amazing timing. Moreover, we’re different enough that we complement one another,” Bullock adds.

A wonderful example of Tatum's flair for physical comedy was when he stripped down for a laugh-out-loud scene with Bullock. Tatum's character encounters leeches all over his backside, and Bullock inspects him to help with removal.

Tatum recalls filming the scene which was Day 2 of production, "Walking to set with a bunch of leeches super-glued to my butt and not having met everybody and just kinda being like, 'Okay, I'm gonna be butt-naked today, my name's Chan. This is just what it is,' " said Tatum. "And then not only that, but to have Sandra Bullock have, like, a two-page monologue with, uh, a certain part of my body."

Piolo Pascual Serenades Zamboanga as He Endorses #50 Ang Probinsyano Party-List

Ultimate Heartthrob Piolo Pascual swept Zamboanguenos off their feet in a visit to the Zamboanga peninsula on Friday (April 8, 2022) – his first campaign show for the 2022 elections.

Pascual, who joined Number 50 Ang Probinsyano Party-List led by Rep. Alfred Delos Santos and Rep. Edward Delos Santos in their campaign sorties in Pagadian, Zamboanga del Sur; Ipil, Zamboanga Sibugay and Sergio Osmena, Zamboanga del Norte, blew away the locals with his good looks and his signature charisma upon landing at Pagadian airport.

The actor is endorsing Ang Probinsyano, a party-list whose rural advancement advocacy he firmly believes in.

At the sortie venues, the cheering crowds also witnessed Pascual’s singing prowess, when he rendered big hits like “Mangarap Ka” and “Hawak Kamay” so much so that at one point, a seemingly mesmerized fan in Pagadian City breached security and ran to the stage to hug the celebrity.

Nandito po ako ngayon para ikampanya ang boses ng mga probinsyanong tulad ko sa Kongreso, ang mga totoong nagtatrabaho po para maiangat ang kalidad ng buhay natin – ang Number 50 Ang Probinsyano Party-List (I am here to campaign for the voice of probinsyanos like me in Congress, the one which is genuinely working to raise the quality of our lives – Number 50 Ang Probinsyano Party List),” Pascual told lively crowds and local executives who came in full force.

Iboto lang natin ang nararapat (Let us vote for deserving candidates),” he added.

Pascual, who is one of Philippines’ most prominent and bankable movie personalities but is known for his simplicity despite his stature, has been vocal in his interviews that ever since he lived in the province, he has been loving the lifestyle – which explains why he is very passionate in supporting programs that will benefit his fellow probinsyanos.

Number 50 Ang Probinsyano Party-List Rep. Alfred Delos Santos vowed to pursue projects for the country’s geographically isolated areas.

Kung kami po ay muling papalarin, sisiguraduhin po namin na patuloy na maibibigay ang mga kinakailangang tulong ng mga malalayong probinsya (If we will be given another chance, we will make sure that our country’s remote areas will continue to be accorded the necessary assistance),” he said.

This was echoed by Rep. Edward Delos Santos, who reiterated their commitment to facilitate rural progress.

Kami po ay tatlong taon pa lang sa Kongreso. Pero sa maikling panahong ito, kami po ay nakapagpagawa ng mga kalsada, tulay, mga multipurpose buildings at evacuation centers sa buong bansa, bukod sa educational, livelihood, health at food programs para sa ating mga kapwa probinsyano (We have been in Congress for only three years. But in such short time, we have built roads, bridges, multipurpose buildings and evacuation centers around the country, apart from educational, livelihood, health and food programs for our fellow probinsyanos),” the lawmaker said.

Meanwhile, in Samar, local officials led by Gov. Reynolds Michael Tan and second district Rep. Sharee Ann Tan also formally endorsed Number 50 Ang Probinsyano Pary-List in a rally at the Catbalogan provincial capitol, graced by celebrity supporter JC de Vera.

In his speech, Number 50 Ang Probinsyano Party-List third nominee Michael Chua reiterated the collective effort needed in navigating a challenging recovery from the pandemic.

Recovery of rural areas is among the key starting points for our post-pandemic comeback so rest assured that we will help enable these communities to go back to their normal lives,” Chua said.

MNL48 Returns with 7th Single "No Way Man"

After a year of tough preparations, MNL48 finally returns with its 7th single “No Way Man,” a dance-centric song with a message that mirrors the girl group’s can-do attitude in the midst of challenges.

“No Way Man” is led by center girl MNL48 Abby with Senbatsu members Sheki, Jamie, Ruth, Ella, Jan, Andi, Jem, Yzabel, Princess, Lara, Coleen, Rianna, Lyza, Dana, and Dian. The single has been a long time coming for the girls due to the COVID-19 pandemic and the ensuing restrictions it entailed for big groups.

MNL48 coach Angel referred to the single as “unforgettable” not just because of its difficult choreography but also for what the girls went through while rehearsing for the song.

We've been training for a year for this and it's really hard for them to catch up because we had to do it online. They've experienced a lot of things and the lyrics really speak of everything that we've been through,” she said.

Meanwhile, center girl MNL48 Abby gave props to her members and their MNLoves for inspiring her to do her best.

I witnessed every member gave their very best for a quality comeback. At first I doubted if I could do this but I always kept in mind that I have a good support system in my sisters, co-members, and the MNL48 fans who kept encouraging and believing in me.”

For rank 2 MNL48 Sheki, “No Way Man” truly exhibits their growth as performers. “This single features our talent in a different genre in dancing. Aside from that, it also highlights our vocals and the character of each member. The song has a beautiful meaning, it really reflects our life as MNL48 idols.”

The music video for “No Way Man” is now up on MNL48’s YouTube channel, which shows off the group’s intricate choreography in a rooftop and in fiery and elegant sets with 395,000 views as of writing. MNL48’s last single was 2020’s “River.”

MNLoves, the fanbase of MNL48, can also look forward to the release of a music card with mini photobook and a handshake ticket that will be available soon.

Stephen King’s Classic Thriller "Firestarter" Set to Ablaze Summer's Heat in Cinemas

Summer’s about to get even hotter with the upcoming latest adaptation of Stephen King’s classic thriller "Firestarter" starring Zac Efron, Ryan Kiera Armstrong, Sydney Lemmon, Kurtwood Smith, John Beasley, with Michael Greyeyes and Gloria Reuben.

In Firestarter, a girl with extraordinary pyrokinetic powers fights to protect her family and herself from sinister forces that seek to capture and control her. For more than a decade, parents Andy (Efron) and Vicky (Lemmon) have been on the run, desperate to hide their daughter Charlie (Armstrong in the titular character, previously played by Drew Barrymore) from a shadowy federal agency that wants to harness her unprecedented gift for creating fire into a weapon of mass destruction.

Andy has taught Charlie how to defuse her power, which is triggered by anger or pain. But as Charlie turns 11, the fire becomes harder and harder to control. After an incident reveals the family’s location, a mysterious operative is deployed to hunt down the family and seize Charlie once and for all. Charlie has other plans.

From Universal Pictures International, Firestarter will soon open in local cinemas on May 11.

Young Teacher from Quezon Wins Brand-New Car in Smart’s GigaMania Promo

Amid a year of ongoing challenges and uncertainty, one teacher’s life changed with GigaMania, the annual thanksgiving promo of Smart Communications, Inc. (Smart) for subscribers nationwide.

Ivannah Vhey Torres, a 24-year-old licensed teacher from Polillo, Quezon, woke up one day to find out that she had won a brand-new Toyota Corolla Cross Hybrid - the grand prize of GigaMania.

A loyal TNT subscriber since 2018, Ivannah used the GigaLife App to register to data packages for her online teaching needs.

She started using mobile internet and the GigaLife App more frequently during the height of the pandemic to conduct her lessons and research online. She said that her go-to data package is GIGA Stories 99, which comes with a total data allowance of 16 GB, valid for seven days. These transactions earned GigaPoints, which automatically qualified as GigaMania raffle entries.

I don’t normally join promos because I know that I’m not that lucky. So when I joined GigaMania, I really didn’t expect to win. I was just after collecting GigaPoints for the perks,” Torres said.

More rewarding experiences for subscribers

So when a Smart agent called to tell me the news, I couldn’t believe it at first. I thought it might be a scam and was scared that my number might have been hacked. I had to verify it first. The brand new car is truly a big blessing for my family,” she said.

Keep surprising us, Smart! You helped me realize that nothing is impossible,” she said. “I hope there will be more rewarding experiences like this for Smart and TNT subscribers. Thank you so much and more power to you!” added Torres.

We congratulate Ivannah and the hundreds of lucky GigaMania winners around the country! We are always grateful to our subscribers for their continued support, and this is why aside from bringing them closer to their passions through our innovative services, we also delight them with our GigaManila promo and regular treats and rewards on the GigaLife App,” said Jane J. Basas, SVP and Head of Consumer Wireless Business at Smart.

“Being with Smart truly comes with a lot of rewarding experiences, and our subscribers can definitely expect more,” Basas added.

Hundreds of lucky GigaMania winners

Aside from Ivannah, hundreds of Smart subscribers also won exciting prizes from GigaMania.

On top of the Toyota Corolla Cross Hybrid, GigaMania grand raffle winners included 10 subscribers who won a premium Samsung set that included the Galaxy Flip 5G smartphone, Galaxy Tab S7, Galaxy Watch 4, and Galaxy Buds Pro.

Moreover, five subscribers won a coveted Apple set comprising a MacBook Air, Apple Watch SE, iPhone 12, and iPad Pro.

More than 500 lucky subscribers also won gadgets like smartphones, laptops, bicycles and more in the weekly draws as well as thousands of freebies including data, call minutes, SMS, Paymaya vouchers, Giga Points, etc.

Download the GigaLife app now

Smart subscribers can expect more rewarding experiences and lifestyle perks on the GigaLife App, which is downloadable on the Apple App Store, Google Play Store, and Huawei Mobile Services.

Through the GigaLife App, subscribers enjoy a smart and simple way to take control of their digital lifestyle: prepaid customers can track their data usage and register conveniently to GIGA promos, while postpaid users can monitor their plan usage, pay their monthly bills, and link all their other accounts, among other innovative features.

One day at a time! Be patient with yourself, and you will get there someday.

TNT endorser and Filipino-Canadian singer and actor Darren Espanto added, “Trust in God’s timing. If something is meant for you, it’ll happen eventually. Don’t try to rush it and don’t be disappointed if things don’t go your way. Don’t give up, even when it feels like nothing’s happening. Stay confident and be yourself, always.”

Gelou of Yara is grateful for the opportunity to work with the two OPM hit artists for the TNT TVC. “It was a great experience for all of us. We learned a lot about how they work and their professionalism," she said.

Gab of Versus added, "They were both friendly and accommodating to us. We felt their energy and positive presence during the shoot. We are looking forward to bond with them more next time."

Shopee, Shopee Xpress Partner with Brands and Charities to Provide Aid for Taal Evacuees

The continued unrest of the Taal Volcano forced over 1,000 Filipino families to evacuate to nearby communities in Batangas last March. With Alert Level 3 still in place, these families continue to spend their days in evacuation centers across the region.

As part of its commitment to better the lives of the underserved, Shopee, the leading e-commerce platform in Southeast Asia and Taiwan, partnered with several brands and charity organizations to provide aid for Taal evacuees.

Shopee Philippines Director Martin Yu said, “As we remain steadfast in our commitment to be a force for good, especially in times when Filipinos need it the most, Shopee will work closely with our partners to help provide immediate relief to the evacuees. Our thoughts are with those affected and we hope that the situation in Taal will recover soon for these families to be able to return to their homes.”

Together with Shopee, partner brands such as Universal Robina Corporation, Colgate, and Monde Nissin, donated essentials such as drinking water and food items to affected residents. Through the help of its Shopee Xpress fleet and volunteers, Shopee transported and coursed donations through the ABS-CBN Foundation for the latter’s ongoing on-ground efforts.

These Shopee Xpress volunteers also helped collate and distribute potable water donated by the Luzon Clean Water Development to evacuation centers in Batangas.

Shopee also invites users to donate to those affected by the taal eruption and other emergencies through its partner charities found on the app.

Coco Martin’s AP Partylist Shows All-Out Support for Leni Robredo's Presidential Bid

Since officially announcing their support for the presidential run of Vice President Leni Robredo during the #Pasiglaban Grand Rally held last March 20, Sunday in Pasig City, Coco Martin’s AP Partylist continued their campaign for Robredo at the Reporma Davao People’s Grand Rally in Tagum, Davao last week April 7. AP Partylist campaigned with Moira and Jason, serenading the crowd before Robredo’s arrival at the event.

AP Partylist #AkoyPilipino is the new partylist of primetime king Coco Martin. While previously affiliated with another partylist with the same name as his primetime show, Coco Martin is now all-out in supporting his new partylist with first nominee Rep. Ronnie Ong, also previously-affiliated with Martin’s old partylist. Ong and Martin decided to represent a new partylist after working together during the pandemic in helping the transport and livelihood sector.

Coco Martin says, “‘Wag nang mangamba, nandito na ang AP Partylist. Dito na tayo sa biyaheng aasenso ang lahat ng Pilipino,” in encouraging his fellow Filipinos to join him in his new partylist, AP Partylist.

During the introduction of the new blended learning system, or online and module classes last August 2020, Ong worked with VP Leni Robredo’s office for their e-learning project. “We also had similar projects with her. We also launched a Libreng Sakay program for health workers and frontliners, as well as establishing E-skwela Hub e-learning centers all over the country to help learners and students adapt to the new normal of classes," Ong said. "How we work, how we serve, and how we care for our kababayans at AP Partylist aligns with hers, and that’s why AP Partylist, together with our whole family which includes Coco Martin and the Taskforce Agila, supports the Leni Robredo presidential campaign."

Ong further stated, “Naniniwala tayo na kapag tinawag ka, tumindig ka. At tumindig si VP Leni. At ngayon, tumitindig ang buong 164 AP Partylist kasama niya. Tumindig tayong lahat hindi lang para ipanalo ang eleksyong ito, kundi para ipanalo ang taumbayan sa isang biyahe ng gobyernong tapat na aangat ang buhay ng lahat.”

Aside from Coco Martin, AP Partylist is also supported by Julia Montes and the famed “Taskforce Agila” which includes Angel Aquino, John Prats, Raymart Santiago, Michael de Mesa, John Medina and Marc Solis

Meanwhile, the inspiring Ako’y Pilipino anthem of AP Partylist was created and performed by rapper artists Bryan “Smugglaz” Lao, Lordivino “Bassilyo” Ignacio and Muriel “Sisa” Jamito. With barely a month to go until election day, AP Partylist has vowed to continue their support for VP Leni Robredo’s campaign. As what AP Partylist chanted to the crowd in the Davao People’s Grand Rally, “Dito na tayo sa biyaheng aasenso ang lahat ng Pilipino… dahil sa gobyernong tapat, angat-buhay ang lahat!
