4 Days

Adolf Alix Jr.’s LGBT themed film “4 Days” starring indie actor Mikoy Morales and Sebastian Castro that made its debut at the 2016 Cinemalaya Independent Film Festival will now screen at exclusively at Ayala Malls Cinemas’ Greenbelt 1 and Trinoma starting October 18.

“4 Days” takes on the struggles of a gay relationship in times of confusion, curiosity and whether to stay inside or come out of the closet.  The movie is not the highly typical gay love story where boy meets boy and falls in love, it goes through the downfall of questioning the reality of one man’s own sexuality,  whether or not to choose a woman because of societal culture or to accept the fact that it is okay to love a man even if you’re a man yourself.

A showcase of the brilliance and bold directing style of Adolfo Alix Jr. who started his career in TV but is now making his name in the world of films,  “4 Days”  is an affecting and delicate take on wrestling with one’s own demons and finding one’s true self and love.

Alongside “4 Days” is the short film “Kinabukasan”, also directed by Adolf Alix Jr. that will play before the full feature film that includes Superstar Nora Aunor with Alden Richards.  Also an acclaimed work of the director, the short film tells the story of a lover and a son who meet a day after losing the person they loved the most.

the new mutants

20th Century Fox finally released the first trailer of “The New Mutants” directed by Josh Boone that will open in Philippine cinemas on April 11, 2018.

The story of the “The New Mutants” revolves around a team of mutant heroes comprised of the first graduates from Charles Xavier’s school.  The exciting new movie stars  Anya Taylor-Joy as Illyana Rasputin/Magik, Maisie Williams as Rahne Sinclair/Wolfsbane, Charlie Heaton as Sam Guthrie/ Cannonball, Alice Braga as Dr. Cecilia Reyes, Henry Zaga as Roberto da Costa / Sunspot, and Blu Hunt as Danielle Moonstar/Mirage.


In recent news, Stacey Snider, chairman and CEO of 20th Century Fox shared, “New Mutants” is about these teenagers who are just coming into their powers. It’s like watching mutants go through adolescence and they have no impulse control, so they’re dangerous. The only solution is to put them in a “Breakfast Club” detention/“Cuckoo’s Nest” institutional setting. It protects the people on the outside, but it’s strange and combustible inside. The genre is like a haunted-house movie with a bunch of hormonal teenagers. We haven’t seen it as a superhero movie whose genre is more like “The Shining” than “we’re teenagers let’s save the world.”


Additonally, Anya Taylor-Joy reassured fans in recent interviews, “I think the nicest thing about it is that Josh Boone, our director — he’s just such a fan of the comics, and he really loves them so much that he’s really interested in just making sure that we do the comics justice for the people that love the characters. You know, we all feel so lucky to be such incredibly loved characters. So, while it’s definitely a departure from the X-Men movies, the fans won’t be disappointed. We definitely kept all the important bits in there.”

Australian actress Abbie Cornish (Sucker Punch, RoboCop) plays secret service agent in a forbidden relationship with a White House staffer (Jim Sturgess) in Warner Bros. Pictures’ epic thriller Geostorm(now playing in Philippine cinemas).

In the film, after an unprecedented series of natural disasters threatened the planet, the world’s leaders came together to create an intricate network of satellites to control the global climate and keep everyone safe. But now, something has gone wrong—the system built to protect the Earth is attacking it, and it’s a race against the clock to uncover the real threat before a worldwide geostorm wipes out everything…and everyone along with it.

Cornish says, “Sarah is such a fun character because she’s strong, athletic, intelligent and also feminine. She’s a tough woman who protects the president, but also has a fun, sensitive and delicate side to her, which we see in her relationship with Max (Sturgess). And that relationship in their work environment within the White House brings complications of its own. This role was a sweet one to step into, with a great energy to it.”

Sarah has a strong sense of right and wrong that goes beyond following orders,” director Dean Devlin notes. “As the mystery unfolds, she realizes she has a vital role to play that may be at odds with the job she is sworn to do. She’ll have a choice to make, and from that choice a very strong individual will emerge.”

Asked what does she hopes audiences take away from Geostorm, Cornish replies, “I want people to have an entertaining, fun experience. We’re living in a time when we watch a lot of entertainment on our computers, televisions, and other devices, and I think that’s great; I love technology and technological advancements. But I also love going to the movies with friends and family members. I hope that Geostorm encourages people to go to the cinema and watch a movie of epic proportions on a big screen. This is pure entertainment – and such a ride. I am excited for people to go on that ride.”

Geostorm also stars Gerard Butler (Olympus Has Fallen, 300), Jim Sturgess (21), Alexandra Maria Lara (Rush), Daniel Wu (Warcraft: The Beginning), Eugenio Derbez (Miracles from Heaven), with Oscar nominees Ed Harris (mother!) and Andy Garcia (Ocean’s Thirteen).

Geostorm is distributed in the Philippines by Warner Bros. Pictures, a Warner Bros. Entertainment company.
