Thirty Seconds to Mars Live in Manila concert ticket prices!

There are two weeks left before Thirty Seconds to Mars rocks Manila. It will be the band’s first-ever concert in the Philippines. For over a decade now, Thirty Seconds to Mars has been busy touring several countries worldwide with the mission of bringing one of the best rock shows. Frontman Jared Leto, drummer Shannon Leto and guitarist Tomo Milicevic are the members of the band which has staged over 500 shows in at least 30 countries. All concerts were sold-out. This has been possible because the band has a devoted following that supports its show. The band’s fans go by the name Echelon, which is a military term that means “waves, or to attack in waves.”

The concert of Thirty Seconds to Mars on July 29 at the Trinoma Mindanao Open Parking has long been marked on the calendars of Echelon Philippines’ members. Even some members of Echelon Malaysia and other members across Asia have confirmed attendance to the band’s stop in Manila. They are looking forward to their favorites such as Hurricane, This is War and The Kill. To add on the crowd’s favorite list is the band’s famous cover of Lady Gaga’s runaway hit Bad Romance.

Patrol ng Pilipino zooms in on PCSO scandal!


 Is the Philippine Charity Sweepstakes Office (PCSO) for the poor or for the powerful?

This is the question asked by Filipinos after seven Catholic bishops were found to have received sports utility vehicles (SUVs) from the PCSO during the Arroyo administration.

Tonight on Patrol ng Pilipino after Bandila, join ABS-CBN correspondent Kiko Faulve as he visits the diocese of the bishops involved in the scandal. Find out how the bishops and their communities are taking the issue about the vehicles they say are being used for charitable projects.

Meanwhile, ABS-CBN correspondent Nico Baua takes us to three depressed areas in Metro Manila that have been long denied by PCSO of their request for ambulances.

What is the agency’s basis for granting the request? Does a palakasan system play a factor in the release of funds and assistance from the PCSO?


Final 'Harry Potter' film grosses P155-m in PHL in four days!

Till the end, Filipino fans of “Harry Potter” showered the boy wizard with affection, sending him off in a grand, sensational way.

With an astounding nationwide box office total of P155 million in four days, Warner Bros. Pictures’ “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 2” shattered multiple box office records in a history-making opening weekend (July 14 to 17). The announcement was made today by Warner Bros. (F.E.), Inc. General Manager, Francis Soliven.

Grossing P117.06-M alone in Metro Manila, the penultimate “Harry Potter” film obliterated the following records: biggest opening weekend all-time for a Warner Bros. title (breaking past “Superman Returns”), best opening weekend ever in the “Harry Potter” franchise (surpassing “Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix”) and highest opening weekend of the year for a Warner title (clobbering “Green Lantern”).

Its IMAX receipts of P14.287-M also broke the all-time biggest IMAX opening weekend record (beating “Transformers: Dark Side of the Moon” at P12.15-M).

The film’s outstanding performance in the Philippines mirrored its phenomenal US bow. “Deathly Hallows – Part 2” earned a stunning $168.5 million at the American box office, which not only is the biggest Harry Potter opening weekend but also broke the industry’s opening weekend record, including holiday weekends. Among the other records broken were single-day box office (Friday at $92.1 million), Friday box office, and opening day box office.

With the film opening day-and-date in 59 territories, the international box office take was a staggering $307 million, making it the biggest international weekend of all time. Led by record-breaking grosses in the UK ($36.6 million) and Australia ($26.7 million), all markets have performed exceedingly well, including Germany ($25.7 million), France ($23.9 million) and Japan ($21.5 million).

Globally, it also broke the IMAX opening weekend record with a worldwide gross of $23.5 million, which includes setting a new record in North America with $15.5 million.

Back in the Philippines, the following cinemas posted the best box office receipts: SM Mall of Asia (P13.14-M including IMAX), SM North EDSA (P10.35-M including IMAX), Trinoma (P8.30-M), SM Megamall (P6.22-M), SM Cebu (P5.38-M including IMAX), Glorietta 4 (P5.36-M), Gateway Cineplex (P4.48-M), Power Plant (P4.16-M), Greenbelt 3 (P3.83-M) and SM Southmall (P3.70-M including IMAX).

Not to be outdone are Eastwood (P3.37-M), Newport (P3.31-M), Alabang Town Center (P3.26-M), Shang Cineplex (P3.03-M), Robinsons Ermita (P2.94-M), Robinsons Galleria (P2.67-M), SM Fairview (P2.48-M), Market Market (P2.47-M), SM San Lazaro (P2.45-M) and Ayala Cebu (P2.26-M).

“Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 2” is the final adventure in the Harry Potter film series. In the epic finale, the battle between the good and evil forces of the wizarding world escalates into an all-out war. The stakes have never been higher and no one is safe. But it is Harry Potter who may be called upon to make the ultimate sacrifice as he draws closer to the climactic showdown with Lord Voldemort. It all ends here.

Daniel Radcliffe, Rupert Grint and Emma Watson reprise their roles as Harry Potter, Ron Weasley and Hermione Granger. The film’s ensemble cast also includes Helena Bonham Carter, Robbie Coltrane, Warwick Davis, Tom Felton, Ralph Fiennes, Michael Gambon, Ciarán Hinds, John Hurt, Jason Isaacs, Matthew Lewis, Gary Oldman, Alan Rickman, Maggie Smith, David Thewlis, Julie Walters and Bonnie Wright.

“Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 2” is the first Harry Potter film to be released in both 3D and 2D. Concurrently with its nationwide theatrical distribution, the film is being released in select IMAX theatres in 3D. The film has been digitally re-mastered into the unparalleled image and sound quality of The IMAX Experience through proprietary IMAX DMR technology.

Still playing across the Philippines, “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 2” is distributed worldwide by Warner Bros. Pictures, a Warner Bros. Entertainment Company.


GMA News programs leads in Mega Manila and Total Urban Luzon TV ratings!

GMA Network’s 24 Oras, Saksi, and 24 Oras Weekend remain as the go-to newscasts for more viewers, according to figures from the more widely recognized TV ratings service provider Nielsen TV Audience Measurement.

Mega Manila and Total Urban Luzon household audience shares from June 1 to 30, 2011 show GMA-7′s newscasts besting competing programs from other stations.

The Kapuso Network’s flagship primetime newscast 24 Oras, which recently won the Bronze Award in the News or News Feature category at the 32nd Telly Awards in New York City, USA, was the clear winner in Mega Manila with 37.5 share points compared to TV Patrol, which only managed 32.9.

In Luzon – which makes up 77 percent of total television households nationwide – 24 Oras’ 36.7 share points again outclassed TV Patrol’s 33.6.

Saksi, which also won the Bronze Award in the same category at the recent Telly Awards, dominated ABS-CBN’s Showbiz News Ngayon (SNN) and TV5′s Aksyon Journalismo in Mega Manila with 32.8, 29.2 and 13.6 share points respectively.

The Kapuso Network’s late night newscast led by 3.6 points against SNN and 19.2 points against Aksyon Journalismo. Luzon ratings figures also show Saksi, with 32.8, topping SNN’s 29.4 and Aksyon Journalismo’s 13.2.

On Saturdays and Sundays, 24 Oras Weekend continued GMA News’ dominance–posting 32.3 share points in Mega Manila as against ABS-CBN’s TV Patrol Weekend’s 23.5. 24 Oras Weekend also led in Luzon with 31.9 compared to TV Patrol Weekend’s 24.9.

Bannered by the most credible names in local broadcasting today: Mike Enriquez and Mel Tiangco for 24 Oras; Arnold Clavio and Vicky Morales for Saksi; Jiggy Manicad and Pia Arcangel for 24 Oras Weekend – and powered by a formidable news team that has won international honors, including the only Peabody Awards won by a Philippine broadcast news organization, GMA-7′s News and Public Affairs organization continue to work tirelessly to earn the trust of the viewers.

Several days leading to Pres. Noynoy Aquino‘s State of the Nation Address, the Kapuso Network’s newscasts will air segments called “Mga Pangako ni Pnoy,” a progress report on the six supposed priority areas in PNoy’s administration. And on July 25, GMA-7 will mount a comprehensive, multi-platform coverage of the State of the Nation Address.


'The Smurfs:' Out of their village, into our world!

The Smurfs arrive on the big screen in Columbia Pictures and Sony Pictures Animation’s hybrid live-action and animated family comedy in 3D, “The Smurfs.” When the evil wizard Gargamel chases the Smurfs out of their village, through a magical portal, and into our world, they land in the middle of New York’s Central Park. Just three apples high and stuck in the Big Apple, the Smurfs must find a way to get back to their village before Gargamel tracks them down.

The film stars Neil Patrick Harris, Sofia Vergara, and Hank Azaria as Gargamel, with a voice cast led by Anton Yelchin and Katy Perry.

In 1958, a Belgian artist named Pierre “Peyo” Culliford created the Smurfs for a comic book. The “Schtroumpfs,” as they were called, were immediately popular – generating a wave of letters to the editor demanding more – and over the next fifty years, they became nothing short of a phenomenon, coming to life in comics, books, television series, films, videogames, live shows, and figurines (over 300 million sold). The characters’ cross-generational appeal has only grown as children who grew up on the Smurfs – including the Saturday morning cartoon – are now parents themselves and introducing their children to the Smurfs for the first time.

According to producer Jordan Kerner, it’s easy to see why the Smurfs have entertained people around the world for generations. It’s not just that they’re adorable – they also represent a type of humanity at its best. “The Smurfs are an analogy for a nation,” says Kerner. “They emphasize family and the importance of cooperation. More importantly, they always see the best in people first. The Smurfs really care for and look after one another.”

“It’s very much a Smurf-out-of-water movie,” says Raja Gosnell, who directs the film. “We took this Smurfy code of living and played it against modern-day New York City.”

Véronique Culliford, Peyo’s daughter, says that her father gave his creation a universal appeal. “The Smurfs are all very similar, but each Smurf is unique,” she says. “Everybody can recognize himself in one of the Smurfs. There is a Smurf for every personality. They are very kind, very social. They have all the qualities that people would like to have.”

As Culliford notes, some things change in life, but the Smurfs are a constant reference point. “The stories remain popular across the generations because people will stay people. We remain as we are and the Smurfs mirror us in our lives. We can adapt to the years, to different technology, but who we are is unchanged.”

Kerner adds that director Raja Gosnell’s expertise and gentle touch — not to mention his hands-on experience marrying live-action and computer animated characters in such films as “Scooby-Doo” and “Beverly Hills Chihuahua” – made him the perfect choice to direct. “I just have to say that Raja is one of the smartest, most intuitive, kindest, wonderful people to work with,” he says. “It was magical every day. We all wanted to make a film we would be proud of, and to help execute the vision he had for these characters.”

The family wanted to preserve the Smurf legacy as true to form as possible—and so did Kerner. “The most important thing,” Culliford adds, “is that the Smurfs stay the Smurfs. They’re leaving their village for the first time, which is exciting.

There are many questions that need to be answered in the mythology of the Smurfs and Kerner sees them being answered in the framework of a franchise. Who are the Smurfs, really, and where do they come from? How did Gargamel get there and why is he such a sour puss? Why did he create Smurfette?

One of the many continuing traditions is the introduction of new Smurfs. The filmmakers had the opportunity to imagine three new Smurfs for the movie – Panicky, Crazy, and Gutsy, the last of which takes on a starring role.

Opening soon across the Philippines, “The Smurfs” is distributed by Columbia Pictures, local office of Sony Pictures Releasing International.

Katie Holmes is on the cover of InStyle!

Katie Holmes opens up about how husband Tom Cruise keeps the romance alive, and how he’s “manly romantic” on the latest issue of InStyle Magazine!

Here are some highlights from the interview!

What’s a date night like with husband Tom Cruise?

“Two years ago he took me up on his P-51 Mustang, a fighter plane from World War II. He painted the words, ‘Kiss Me, Kate’ on the side,” Holmes says in the August issue of InStyle. “It feels like you’re on a bike in the sky. I thought, I’m either going to spend this whole flight totally freaked out or realize this is pretty thrilling.”

When you’re married to one of the world’s biggest movie stars, whom Holmes calls a “manly romantic,” life is bound to be exciting but also challenging when it comes to balancing careers and family.

On keeping the romance alive:

“In our family we have a policy: we make it work,” she says. “We Skype, and we try not to go for a week without seeing each other. We’re also very good at setting up camp wherever we go.”

On daughter Suri:

Wherever the couple goes, their 5-year-old daughter Suri is often in tow. The actress, who will next be seen in the horror film Don’t Be Afraid of the Dark, credits her daughter with enriching her performances.

“My work has changed for the better,” Holmes notes. “I have more to bring to a role.”

On having another baby:

While the recent rumors that Holmes was pregnant turned out to be untrue, the actress says she doesn’t feel pressure to give Suri a sibling.

“We already have a very big family; a full household with cousins who are over a lot, and she has her friends,” Holmes says. “My biggest thing is making sure she’s fully taken care of and doing well.”

Experimenting with fashion:

“I’m not afraid to try a new designer or do something trendy, but it has to look right on my body. You don’t want to look like a fashion victim!”

On the excitement of landing new roles:

“Every time I get a job I cry. It sounds hokey, but it’s a sparkly moment that reminds you you’re living your dream every day. No matter how many roles you get, it’s like, ‘Somebody thinks I can do it!’”

On acting like a ‘lady’:

“I always try to conduct myself in a ladylike manner. That was my mom’s advice to me before every school dance, and it’s really locked in.”
