Janine Gutierrez Drops Truth Bomb on Francine Diaz as “Dirty Linen” Nears Finale

Dirty Linen” is dropping one bombshell revelation after another now that Mila (Janine Gutierrez) finally revealed her true identity to Chiara (Francine Diaz) and the truth that they are biological sisters, as the hit revenge series approaches its heart-stopping finale.

Mila’s emotions got the best of her when she blurted out the shocking truth - that she and Chiara have the same mom, and that she is in fact Alexa Salvacion, one of the ones seeking justice and revenge against the Fieros, Chiara’s family.

The revelation now puts Mila and her accomplices’ lives and their quest for justice in great danger as Chiara swears to reveal Mila’s secret to the family and make her suffer for fooling them. Before this, Mila’s husband, Aidan Fiero (Zanjoe Marudo), was already suspicious of her actions and began investigating her family background.

Mila and Chiara’s real relationship wasn’t the only shocker because it was also revealed that Feliz (Angel Aquino), the only daughter of Doña Cielo (Tessie Tomas), wasn’t given a single cent of inheritance because she is not a real Fiero due to her mother’s secret illicit affair with a still unidentified man.

Will Mila survive the evil doings of the Fiero family? Who is the biological father of Feliz?

Everything is Bigger in “Meg 2: The Trench”, According to Filmmakers

For director Ben Wheatley, the goal for “Meg 2: The Trench” was simple: “Taking ‘The Meg’ and supercharging it – bigger creatures, bigger action, bigger monsters, bigger environments, bigger equipment – the whole thing. Bigger.”

Watch the trailer:

The cast also got a very welcome addition that helped supersize its cast – global action icon Wu Jing, star of five of the 10 highest-grossing films in China. “To be honest, I’ve always been terrified of monster films,” says Jing. “You can ask me to jump off a high-rise building, and I think that’s easier for me – but fighting a fictitious monster? That is something very hard for me.”

Lucky for Jing, it’s not all about fighting fictitious monsters. Part of the charm of “The Meg,” one of the biggest surprise blockbusters in 2018, was its sense of humor. “Meg 2” producer Lorenzo di Bonaventura admits, “There was a little bit of uncertainty with the first film how the comedy would play for the audience. But they really bought into the notion of ‘Let’s not take ourselves too seriously – let’s have some fun and some scares.’” He adds that for the sequel, everything is more: “This time around, we’ll have some more scares, a little more carnage in and out of the water, two globally popular actors in Jason Statham and Wu Jing, some new cast members, more action… and more Megs. It’s a balance between reminding them of what they really loved and the characters they loved, and then giving them a new experience.”

Looks like it’s mission accomplished for director Wheatley. Producer Belle Avery agrees that “Meg 2: The Trench” is bigger and more. She says that for the sequel, they’re “giving [audiences] more creatures, creating more personalities with the Megs and making more discoveries in the trench. I think that’s pretty important. You know, mankind has a tendency to destroy things, and we touch on that. But, it’s kind of like Jonas [Jason Statham] said in the first film, ‘Meg versus Man is a slaughter.’ So, you’re going to see a little bit of that in this one, too, but fun slaughter.”

In “Meg 2: The Trench,” Statham and Jing lead a daring research team on an exploratory dive into the deepest depths of the ocean. Their voyage spirals into chaos when a malevolent mining operation threatens their mission and forces them into a high-stakes battle for survival. Pitted against colossal Megs and relentless environmental plunderers, our heroes must outrun, outsmart, and outswim their merciless predators in a pulse-pounding race against time.

Watch “Meg 2: The Trench,” now showing in cinemas.

About “Meg 2: The Trench”

Jason Statham and Wu Jing lead an ensemble cast that also includes Sophia Cai (“The Meg”), Page Kennedy (“The Meg”), Sergio Peris-Mencheta (“Rambo: Last Blood”), Skyler Samuels (“The Gifted”), and Cliff Curtis (“Avatar” franchise).

“Meg 2: The Trench” is directed by Ben Wheatley (“In the Earth,” “Free Fire”), from a screenplay by Jon Hoeber & Erich Hoeber (“The Meg,” “Transformers: Rise of the Beasts”) and Dean Georgaris (“The Meg,” “Lara Croft: Toom Raider – The Cradle of Life”), and a screen story by Dean Georgaris and Jon Hoeber & Erich Hoeber, based on the novel The Trench by Steve Alten. The film is produced by Lorenzo di Bonaventura (“The Meg,” “Bumblebee”) and Belle Avery (“The Meg,” “Before the Devil Knows You’re Dead”), and executive produced by Jason Statham, Cate Adams, Ruigang Li, Catherine Xujun Ying, Wu Jing, E. Bennett Walsh, Erik Howsam, Gerald R. Molen and Randy Greenberg.

Now showing in Philippine cinemas, “Meg 2: The Trench” is distributed by Warner Bros. Pictures, a Warner Bros. Discovery company.

Mask Girl: Unmasking the The Twisted Truth behind Three Names, Three Lives, Three Murders Beginning August 18, Only on Netflix

Ahead of its much-anticipated debut on Netflix on August 18, upcoming series Mask Girl is setting the stage for its intriguing story through three main posters and a new trailer.

The trailer grips viewers’ attention right from the start, with main character Kim Mo-Mi accepting her sins in a chilling voice. What follows is a roller coaster ride through Mo-Mi's life, from her unassuming job as an office worker, to becoming a popular Cam model masked girl, and ultimately ending up as prisoner number 1047, who appears repentant yet dreams of escape. This rapid succession of her multiple identities leaves viewers craving to know more about the mysterious story behind her many faces.

In an impressive display of talent, three actors – Ko Hyun-Jung, Nana, and a new talent yet to be revealed – portray Kim Mo-Mi in distinct phases of her life. Each actor contributes a unique shade to this character as she transforms throughout the series.

The suspense-filled series also features an ensemble of vivid characters. Here’s a snapshot of the key players.

Kim Mo-Mi: Forced to live three lives under three different names, - Kim Mo-Mi, the corporate employee Showgirl A-reum, and Prisoner Number 1047 - she becomes this enigmatic character who relishes the applause and adoration of her online audience, even as her life off-camera is filled with unhappiness due to her complex appearance. An unforeseen incident triggers her transformation into a murderer, adding yet another identity to her tumultuous life.

Ju Oh-Nam: Played by Ahn Jae-hong, he is an office worker whose only pleasure is watching internet broadcasts after work. When he realizes Mask Girl is his co-worker Kim Mo-Mi, he develops a fixation that takes over his life. Ahn describes his character as "a company employee who wants to erase his presence during the day, and to show his presence in his own world at night." The actor focused on depicting "a man's heart that started with the wrong direction right from the beginning," raising anticipation for his portrayal of the character's hidden depths.

Kim Kyung-Ja: Portrayed by Yeom Hye-ran from The Glory, she is a mother whose entire world revolves around her son. When her son goes missing, she begins a relentless pursuit to find him. Yeom says: "I hoped that Kim Kyung-Ja's revenge would not be motivated only by her motherhood.I wanted to include various complex conflicts originating from her age, religion, and other beliefs, and I had many discussions about these conflicts, which arise as she rushes towards a large and clear goal called revenge." Her nuanced analysis has sparked curiosity about the character.

Director Kim Yong-Hoon describes these characters as "Injured, marginalized individuals," each tangled in the web of a murder mystery. The blurred lines between good and evil create a captivating narrative filled with ambiguity.

With its layered characters and intricate plot, Mask Girl is set to redefine mystery-thrillers. Prepare to unmask the truth of Mask Girl, beginning August 18, only on Netflix.
