SB19, BINI, Flow G, and SunKissed Lola Collaborate in PUREGOLD's "Nasa Atin Ang Panalo" Concert on July 12 at the Big Dome

Prepare for the ultimate celebration of today's Original Pinoy Music (OPM), and the stories of success behind these chart- topping hits, as Puregold presents "Nasa Atin ang Panalo” concert on July 12, 2024, 7 p.m., at the iconic Araneta Coliseum.

The thanksgiving event, which will feature acts by phenomenal Filipino music talents SB19, BINI, and Flow G, and a special performance by SunKissed Lola, celebrates Puregold's remarkable milestone of reaching 500 stores on its 25th year. Through “Nasa Atin ang Panalo,” Puregold expresses its gratitude to its loyal customers, dedicated employees, and supportive partners who have long played a role in the company's very own panalo story.

As can be gleaned from Puregold’s recent announcement on its social media pages, the star-studded “Nasa Atin ang Panalo” is set to be an unforgettable night of music, inspiration, and pure entertainment. This was affirmed by Puregold Price Club Inc. President Vincent Co who relates that from the get-go, they envisioned “Nasa Atin ang Panalo” to be more than just a concert.

We want it to be a heartfelt tribute to Filipino stories of grit, courage, change, and success - panalo values that our concert artists possess and hope to inspire among their fellow Filipinos," Co says. “And we are excitedly presenting these top musicians not only to showcase their talent and spotlight local music, but to highlight the stories of SB19, BINI, Flow G, and SunKissed Lola as they pursue their dreams.”

Puregold shares why they have chosen to collaborate with these artists:

P-Pop idols SB19 weathered a roller-coaster journey, staying resilient to sustain their rise in the music industry.

BINI, the nation's girl group, sings about youthful romance, fun, and empowerment. The group continually evolves to tell its stories in the most profound ways.

Flow G, now one of the icons in Philippine rap, has hurdled numerous challenges but has remained steadfast in his pursuit of hip-hop, relentlessly moving forward toward his goals.

Well-loved band SunKissed Lola, united by their passion for creating music, has transformed their dreams into reality, achieving success through their unwavering love for their craft. “Nasa Atin ang Panalo” promises to bring joy to A'Tins, Blooms, Dolores, and fans of Flow G. Surprise guests are also lined up to boost concert-goers’ thrill and excitement.

Loyal Puregold customers can also look forward to Tita and Ninang Zones, where featured products and brands will offer a number of fun activities.

Fans and followers can also check out the venue’s VIP Section where one can get the best view in the house; coliseum group photos that will capture moments with fellow fans celebrating the night together; and exclusive merchandise giveaways that will keep memories alive long after the event.

Additionally, as Puregold has teased the release of original music in partnership with these top artists, fans have more drops to look forward to as well.

Puregold is mounting the concert in collaboration with Wish 107.5, a partnership that has been instrumental - since 2021 - in discovering and highlighting OPM talents. This partnership reflects a shared commitment to promote and nurture local music artists through platforms that enable them to reach wider audiences.

As "Nasa Atin ang Panalo" draws near, Puregold encourages OPM enthusiasts, music lovers, and Puregold customers to witness the convergence of talent, passion, and pure Filipino pride in the musical event. Ticket mechanics will be announced soon on Puregold's official channels.

"Ride or Die, For Real," Says Martin Lawrence of His Real-Life Friendship with Will Smith

Will Smith and Martin Lawrence - cinema’s bad boys of action-comedy – are back again in "Bad Boys: Ride or Die".

It’s magical to see them both together,” says Bilall Fallah, who directs with his partner Adil El Arbi, and are best-known as simply Adil & Bilall. “It’s unbelievable, the chemistry they have. It’s always surprising when you’re behind the monitors directing the scene and they come up with this genius golden humor – you sit back, relax, and see them perform.” When that magic happens, he says, his job is easy. “They’re the best duo on the big screen, and very unique.

Smith says that his chemistry with Lawrence comes out of 30 years of respect for each other’s craft. “We both have grown and experienced a lot of life,” he says. “So, when we come together, the amount of respect and care, and concern for each other – it’s the only way to work.

In the mid-1990s, Martin Lawrence and Will Smith did not know each other before Lawrence cold-called Smith to see if the star of Fresh Prince of Bel-Air would be interested in teaming with the star of Martin for an R-rated buddy cop movie. Lawrence had the script, and his sister, who was a fan of Fresh Prince, suggested that her brother call Smith. The result was not only one of the great pairings in movie history that changed their lives, but a real-life friendship too. “It’s the best phone call I ever made,” says Lawrence. “We had known of each other’s work, but we’d never met. When we did meet, there was a mutual respect and it was clear we had a connection. Even now, 30 years later, we are close friends. Even when it has been a minute since we’ve seen each other, we know we can always count on each other. Ride or die, for real.”

Isn’t that what we all want? Someone we can count on no matter what?” adds Smith. “That’s part of the joy of these movies – bad boys for life is truly for life.

Bad Boys: Ride or Die sees Mike Lowrey (Smith) and Marcus Burnett (Lawrence) in the biggest jam they’ve ever faced: when new evidence comes to light implicating the late Captain Howard (Joe Pantoliano) in a lifetime of drug-related crimes, the Bad Boys vow to clear his name… even if it means coming in the crosshairs of the cartel and the cops.

Adil & Bilall return to the helm of the movie after also directing Bad Boys for Life and notching the franchise’s best reviews from critics and audiences alike. “When we were 19 and studying in Brussels in film school, we were always dreaming of one day being part of Hollywood, and we were always joking that if one day we would be getting the chance to go to Hollywood, we’d want to make a Bad Boys movie – a Bad Boys 3,” Bilall laughs. “But obviously, we never really believed that it would happen up until we got to ask Jerry [Bruckheimer, producer] and Will. And we’re still pinching ourselves. We are fanboys, so it’s still a very surreal feeling.

Don’t miss out on explosive action and laugh-out-loud humor Bad Boys style when Bad Boys: Ride or Die, distributed in the Philippines by Columbia Pictures, local office of Sony Pictures Releasing International, opens in cinemas June 5.

Meet the Cast of the Thrilling Zombie Apocalypse Movie "Love You as the World Ends"

Kamen Rider stars Takeuchi Ryoma and Takahashi Fumiya are Hibiki and Yamato in the dystopian zombie film Love You as the World Ends

Based on the hit horror-television series co-produced by Nippon TV and Hulu Japan, Love You As The World Ends ties in all the intertwining stories of a group of survivors trying to stay alive during a zombie outbreak.

Takeuchi Ryoma plays the lead role as Hibiki, a mechanic before the world was plunged into chaos. Hibiki was about to propose to his partner, Kurumi, when the deadly Golem outbreak began. Fighting for survival, Kurumi tragically succumbs to the Golem virus, but miraculously gives birth to their child, Mirai. Mirai’s unusual childbirth piques the interest of researchers who are looking for the cure to the Golem virus, and kidnaps, hoping to further their cause. Hibiki must now climb up Utopia, a refuge from the Golems, to get to the researchers and save his child.

Most notable for playing main character Shinnosuke Tomari of the Kamen Rider series, Kamen Rider Drive, Takeuchi Ryoma has been Hibiki for the Love You as the World Ends series for 4 seasons. He’s also cast as Miyabe Arata in Roppongi Class, a remake of the hit K-drama series Itaewon Class.

Takahashi Fumiya plays the second protagonist, Yamato, who came across Hibiki by chance when his car broke down while on a date with the girl he wants to be in a relationship with, Aoi. The pair will meet again as fate brings them together on a quest to find and rescue their loved ones. Aoi is up in the top level of Utopia, where the researchers are secluded, her fate unknown to Yamato. As they face unknown dangers higher up in Utopia, Yamato and Hibiki form a tenuous alliance to increase their chances of successfully getting to the top.

In 2019, Takahashi Fumiya was the first Kamen Rider actor to be cast who was born in the 21st century, playing the protagonist role in Kamen Rider Zero-One. Consistently getting roles in TV drama series, he bagged the lead role for the prime time drama for the first time as Kitada Gaku in Fermat no Ryōri.

Watch them take the ultimate journey as Love You As The World Ends opens in PH cinemas on June 12, an Encore Films film distributed by Warner Bros.

SB19's Pablo and Josh Cullen with BINI and BGYO are Featured Artists in "MYX Hits Different" Season 3

SB19 member Josh Cullen tackles his hardships after debuting as a soloist while also balancing his commitment to his group in the pilot episode of “MYX Hits Different” season 3.

Josh performed his solo tracks “Pakiusap Lang” and “Yoko Na” with Al James. He also shared his perspective on debuting as a solo artist which he described as “hard but fulfilling.”

It’s not an easy responsibility because I really try to give all my efforts with the group and at the same time doing an extra activity like this. It’s like having multiple jobs; it’s hard but fulfilling,” said Josh.

The new season takes viewers into a deep dive to the world of P-pop and how it impacted the landscape of Filipino music. Various local pop soloists and groups such as SB19's Pablo with Josue, Press Hit Play, Dione, 1st one, Yara, BGYO and BINI are set to grace the show.

"The P-Pop phenomenon is beginning to take center stage. Just a few years ago, only curious listeners casually tuned in to P-Pop artists. Today, they have giant multi-ethnic fan bases around the world who identify not only with their music but with what they represent. It's also refreshing for these P-pop music artists not only to be extremely talented but also to project values and positive messages to their fans with their music," said Nino Llanera, MYX Global head of content and programming.

Puregold CinePanalo 2024 Best Picture “Under A Piaya Moon” Comes Home to Bacolod on May 29

Negrense director Kurt Soberano’s debut masterpiece Under A Piaya Moon, which bagged eight major awards at the 2024 Puregold CinePanalo Film Festival including Best Picture, will have a commercial screening run in the province that inspired it.

The award-winning film, starring Jeff Moses, Pau Dimaranan, Chart Motus, and veteran actor Joel Torre will open in Ayala Malls Capitol Central and SM City Bacolod on May 29.

In its premiere at the recently concluded Puregold CinePanalo Film Festival, Under A Piaya Moon captivated audiences and critics alike. It nabbed eight awards and numerous nominations including Pinakapanalong Mahabang Pelikula (Best Full-Length Film), Panalong Aktor for Jeff Moses (Best Actor), Panalong Pangalawang Aktor for Joel Torre (Best Supporting Actor), a Mowelfund Special Citation, MTRCB Responsableng Paglikha, Panalo sa Cinematography, Panalo sa Editing, and Panalo sa Production Design.

Many critics praised the film, with Marco Sumayao of Adobo Magazine calling it “meant for the global stage,” which “couldn’t have been told by other voices or in other settings.” Respected film critic Philbert Dy further opined on his personal Letterboxd, praising Joel Torre’s acting as ”such a fine performance that it practically makes the film worth recommending on its own.”

Under A Piaya Moon is Soberano’s beautifully crafted homage to his province Negros. Unlike many award-winning films dominated by Manileño culture, Piaya Moon is a defiant film, with its dialogue being spoken entirely in the local Negros language of Hiligaynon. Upon its release, it was adored by audiences and critics alike for its sincere display of Negrense culture, particularly its rich culinary tradition.

According to director Kurt Soberano, the choice to put Negros Occidental was a labor of love, as a Bacoleño himself. For him, few provinces have changed and grown the way Negros Occidental has throughout the years, which makes it a perfect backdrop for a story like Under the Piaya Moon, which is all about growth, exploration, and perseverance.

It’s in the sweetness of piaya and the depth of muscovado sugar that this movie seeks to reflect the collective identity of Negrenses, and our indomitable, enduring spirit,” says Soberano. “I made this movie in part to celebrate Negros, both to celebrate how it’s progressed, and preserve the culture we can’t afford to lose.”

Outside of being a landmark film when it comes to Negrense culture, Under A Piaya Moon is also notable for being a heartwarming film about the delicate balance of professional success and personal growth, and how the breaking of bread can bind families. The film tells the story of Stephen, who arrives in town as the heir to his grandparents’ local panaderia, but finds himself caught between his professional aspirations, his family’s troubled past, and the irresistible pull of Negrosanon culture.

We are proud to have premiered Under A Piaya Moon at the 2024 Puregold CinePanalo and are eager to see it run in the province that inspired it,” said Puregold President Vincent Co. “This film marks a significant milestone in representing the cherished province of Negros in cinema, and we are confident our audiences will appreciate and enjoy it.”.

Ms. Ivy Piedad, Puregold Senior Marketing Manager, concurs with this sentiment. “It’s very rare that Negros culture is celebrated in this way, with this much care and artistry put into it,” said Piedad. “We’re more than proud to be part of something as personal to the province.”

Under A Piaya Moon will be screening in Negros beginning May 29 at Ayala Malls Capitol Central and SM City Bacolod. All interested watchers are invited to partake in the cinematic event and buy their tickets before the screening run ends.
