Star Cinema doubtful of Sharon and Robin’s box office pull?

KRIS Bernal is nominated as best actress in the coming Star Awards for Television for her persuasive portrayal of her dual roles of Nimfa and Rosette in “Impostora.”

“It’s an honor pero hindi naman ako nananalo diyan,” she tells us on the show’s set in Cainta. “Ilang beses na akong na-nominate, I’ve never won pa. And when I saw the list of the other nominees, naku, malayo talaga akong manalo. Thanks na lang na nahanay ako with them.”

She just returned from a short visit to Korea and the rumor is that she was with her boyfriend who’s not from showbiz. “We’re just dating. Mga six months na. At may iba pa kaming friends na kasama sa Korea. We went there as possible business partners. But don’t ask for his name kasi very private siya. He’s the supplier ng meat for my two burger joints in Marikina and UST, called Meat Kris. We’re thinking of putting up a Korean Grill restaurant in Manila kasi na-realize ko, mas gusto pa rin ng mga Pinoy ng rice meals kaysa burgers.”

How does she feel that her former ka-love team, Aljur Abrenica, is now a dad?

“Nagkausap kami and I can see na he’s very happy naman sa situation niya ngayon, so I’m very happy for him and wish him all the best.”

Zanjoe Marudo has denied the rumor he and Bela Padilla are now playing beautiful music together.

“Magkaibigan lang talaga kami,” he said. “Matagal na nga kaming hindi nagkikita. I remain single at sobrang happy ako na nagagawa ko ang anumang gusto ko. I’m also excited na dala-dalawa ang movies ko. I just finished ‘Fallback’ with Rhian Ramos, na first time kong naktrabaho kasi magkaiba nga kami ng networks. Then I’m also doing a new movie with Empoy Marquez.”

How is it working with Rhian in “Fallback,” which is directed by Jason Laxamana?

“At first, siempre, kapaan muna, kasi first ko nga siyang na-meet pero pinadali niya ‘yung trabaho namin kasi napakagaan niyang ka-work. At magaling siyang umarte, kahit mabigat, light or romantic ‘yung eksena, lagi siyang game gawin kahit ano.”

He’s also glad that he got nominated in the International Emmy Awards as best actor in a single performance for an episode he did in “Maalaala Mo Kaya” and he’ll attend the awards night scheduled on November 20 in New York City. Does he hope to win?

“Siempre, umaasa, pero mas excited akong ma-experience ‘yung first time kong pag-attend sa ganung international event and with other actors and creative people from around the world. Kung ibibigay ba sa’kin ‘yung award, ‘di ang laking swerte, thank you. But what I really look forward more is mismong event na dadaluhan ko roon.”

The past weekend will be memorable for happenings that are poles apart. In Doha, Qatar, 41-year old actress Isabel Granada passed due to aneurysm. This is exactly what happened to our own wife Victoria in 2008 who just collapsed after delivering a lecture in UP Los Banos, then quietly left a few days later. Let’s pray for the repose of the soul of Isabel and for the family she left behind to be able to cope with the loss.

In contrast to this sad story, two local beauty queens won international titles. Karen Ibasco is the fourth Pinay to win the Miss Earth title right in her own turf. In Bolivia, Winwyn Marquez won the Reina HispanicoAmericana. She’s the first Filipina, first Asian to join this largely Latina pageant and it’s to her credit that she bagged it at first try. The footage of her in national costume, swimsuit, long gown are all available in Youtube and the one we like the most is the interview portion where she gave a lengthy and intelligent answer.

Mark Herras, the boyfriend of Winwyn, is understandably rejoicing for her win. He went to the house of Winwyn’s mom, Alma Moreno, for them to celebrate together. Winwyn’s dad, Joey Marquez, is also very proud of her.

To the family of the late Isabel Granada, our condolences.

To Karen and Winwyn, Bravo! Mabuhay! We’re proud of you.

Sharon Cuneta’s comeback flick was first imagined to be with Gabby Concepcion, but since Gabby is so busy with GMA-7’s mammoth hit afternoon drama, “Ika-6 na Utos,” he doesn’t have time to shoot a new movie so it was reported that Sharon will instead be paired with Robin Padila, with whom she has done three films before when they were both still with Viva Films. This will be directed by certified hitmaker Cathy Garcia Molina.

We heard they have started shooting the movie. Robin has also started taping a new soap with Jodi Santamaria (who’ll be playing dual roles), but after a couple of days of taping, the project suddenly stopped and up to now, it has not resumed. Now, the latest news is that the young love team of Joshua Garcia and Julia Barretto would be added into the cast of the yet untitled Sharon-Robin movie.

So what does that mean? That Star Cinema is not confident Sharon and Robin alone might not be able to pull in the expected crowds inside the theaters. Well, we can’t blame them as we all know Sharon’s recent solo film, “Ang Pamilyang Hindi Lumuluha,” didn’t do as well as expected at the box office.

The same goes for Robin. His last three films also didn’t do great at the tills: “Bonifacio, Ang Unang Pangulo” and “10,000 Hours,” that even won awards in the 2014 and 2013 Metro Manila Film Festivals but didn’t yield spectacular results at the box office, ditto for his other film that his own company, RCP Productions, produced, “Sa Ngalan ng Ama, Ina at Mga Anak,” also shown in 2014.

So we shouldn’t be surprised if Star Cinema is being a segurista by adding Joshua and Julia in the cast of their comeback film. After all, the Joshlia tandem already has two box office hits to their credit, “Vince, Kath & James” and “Love You the Stars and Back,” that both went beyond the P100 million mark at the tills.

Disloyalty

By REY O. ARCILLA | January 23, 2018
‘Locsin should just concentrate on learning and doing his job instead of contradicting his President which smacks of disloyalty. If he can’t do that, he should resign out of delicadeza, that is, if Digong has indeed compelling reasons not to fire him.’
