ABS-CBN Series 'Marry Me, Marry You,' 'Halik,' and 'On the Wings of Love' to Air on Malaysian TV

ABS-CBN, the Philippines' leading content provider, is bringing three of its popular drama series to Malaysia on free TV channel TVS 122, namely "Marry Me, Marry You," "Halik," and "On the Wings of Love," all subtitled in Bahasa Malaysia.

These shows, all subtitled in Bahasa Malaysia, will be the first Filipino programs to air on Malaysia's free to air TV channel TVS 122, operated by Sarawak Media Group, Malaysia's first state owned TV station.

Now airing on TVS 122 is ABS-CBN's drama romantic-comedy series "Marry Me, Marry You," which first premiered locally in 2021—featuring the pairing of Paulo Avelino and Janine Gutierrez in her very first Kapamilya project.

The story follows engaged lovers Camille (Janine) and Andrei (Paulo), who struggle to find the perfect balance between their blossoming relationship with their families' clashing personalities as they make their way to matrimony.

It features the story of two couples whose lives are intertwined in a complicated series of affairs tainted by lust, temptation, betrayal, and revenge.

Another series that will air soon on TVS 122 is its award-winning romantic-comedy series "On the Wings of Love," starring the iconic love team of James Reid and Nadine Lustre. The show follows the lives of Clark (James), a simple boy living the American life, and Leah (Nadine), a girl with an ambitious American dream, and how they find love in each other's company after their forced marriage to let her legally stay in the United States.

Apart from these recent feats in syndicating its beloved shows to its Malaysian neighbors, ABS-CBN continues making waves in global content distribution by bringing world-class Filipino content of all genres to foreign audiences in over 50 territories worldwide—selling over 50,000 hours of content with stories that appeal and relate to various cultures.

(Trailer) “Magic Mike’s Last Dance” Starring Channing Tatum and Salma Hayek

Just in time for Valentine’s Day 2023 comes the third installment of the blockbuster “Magic Mike” film franchise, the musical comedy “Magic Mike’s Last Dance.”

Check out the film’s official trailer below.

The creative team behind the first film “Magic Mike,” which garnered praise from critics and audiences alike, has reunited to create the magic again in “Magic Mike’s Last Dance” Channing Tatum reprises his role as Mike Lane and Steven Soderbergh returns to the helm with a script from Reid Carolin, who also wrote the first two films. And starring alongside Tatum is Salma Hayek Pinault (“House of Gucci,” “Hitman’s Wife’s Bodyguard”).

“Magic” Mike Lane (Tatum) takes to the stage again after a lengthy hiatus, following a business deal that went bust, leaving him broke and taking bartender gigs in Florida. For what he hopes will be one last hurrah, Mike heads to London with a wealthy socialite (Hayek Pinault) who lures him with an offer he can’t refuse…and an agenda all her own. With everything on the line, once Mike discovers what she truly has in mind, will he - and the roster of hot new dancers he’ll have to whip into shape - be able to pull it off?

The film’s producers are Nick Wechsler, Gregory Jacobs, Tatum, Carolin and Peter Kiernan. Julie M. Anderson serves as executive producer.

Also starring with Tatum and Hayek Pinault are Ayub Khan Din (“Ackley Bridge”), newcomer Jemelia George, Juliette Motamed (“We Are Lady Parts”) and Vicki Pepperdine (“Johnny English Strikes Again”).

David Harbour's Strange Version of Santa Claus Comes to the Rescue in “Violent Night”

You better watch out, David Harbour’s version of Santa Claus is coming to town in the action-packed holiday movie “Violent Night”. 

From 87North, the producers of non-stop action thrills with groundbreaking fight sequences such as John Wick and Bullet Train comes “Violent Night”, where Santa is pitted against bad guys on Christmas day and shows them what Christmas is like for the naughty ones.

Violent Night’s Santa Claus is the real Santa, but in a way that we’ve never seen him before. This Santa is a protector and a warrior with some seriously bad-ass skills, but when we meet him in the film, he’s become slightly bitter and tired about the otherwise merry holiday. “He’s lost faith in humanity, and he feels the spirit of Christmas disappearing, which has made him into a shell of a man,” director Tommy Wirkola says.

Santa is at a crossroads. “Santa is having a bit of an existential crisis and he’s lost his Christmas spirit,” producer Kelly McCormick says. “Christmas has been overtaken by consumerism and greed, and he’s ready to hang up his boots until he enters the Lightstone home and realizes a little girl Trudy and her family are in danger.

It turns out, that before Santa donned the jolly red suit and hitched up the reindeer, he had a very different life - a history that’s about to make him the ideal protector for this exact moment. “Santa was a greedy, violent Norwegian Viking who traveled the Scandinavian countries in search of treasure, killing anyone who got in his way,” Wirkola says. “It was the elves and the magic of Christmas that he discovered. This was the moment that he was offered some redemption and he found that in giving back, he could redeem who he was born to be, rather than a violent murderer. So, when we meet him in the film, he hasn’t thought about that life or been close to that life for hundreds of years, but over the course of the events of the film, he’s forced to put some of his skills from the past into practice.”

Finding the ideal actor to play Santa was essential. “It needed to be someone with the natural gravitas of Santa Claus and his sense of kindness and generosity, but there also needed to be some mystery in him beneath the surface,” Wirkola says. “He also had to be able to not only kick ass, but also be able to sell the emotional moments, too. David Harbour (Stranger Things) was the first person we reached out to because he had a combination of all those things.

Harbour also had the benefit of being a bit of a mystery himself to the public. For his part, Harbour wasn’t initially sure about the role when the idea of the film was first explained to him. “I first heard the pitch from my agent, who told me, ‘It’s a violent Santa Claus movie,’” Harbour says. “My initial response was, ‘What are you talking about?’ But then, they told me the filmmakers wanted to talk to me about it. So, they called me up and told me the general idea, and it sounded so hilarious, fresh and different, but in my mind, it was still a big risk because it was like two movies smashed into one. That’s what was so unique about it.

An R-16 holiday film from Universal Pictures International, “Violent Night” will open in cinemas on November 30.
