Oscar-Winner Mark Rylance Inspires Love, Friendship as "The BFG"‏

Image

“Heather is a young woman who went to Stanford and was recruited by many organizations,” says producer Gregory Goodman. “She could have chosen the private sector and made millions, but it’s clear she’s a smart person who’s made a specific choice about what matters in her life.

Step 1. Get to know solar power

REEL DEAL: Star Trek Beyond REVIEW

Image
The journey to the unknown continues with another installment of the well-loved Sci-Fi series Star Trek. With the success of the last film "Into The Darkness", they also geared up what would be next for the explorers and what lies beyond uncharted frontiers.

Now we have Star Trek Beyond which now directed by Justin Lin who is known for "The Fast and The Furious" movies which many had doubts since fast cars does not always equate to fast space ships. And with a totally different universe, the question lies on how the adventure will take them or even change them.

This is also quite a emotional movie for the cast as two members of the iconic fleet were lost namely Leonard Nimoy and Anton Yelchin. It was really sad since Nimoy belong to the original series while Yelchin is Chekov in the new film franchise. The film did pay homage to the two in the credit scenes.

The Scarefest is not yet over this year with the introduction of the Horror-Thiller "Lights Out". This movie stars Theresa Palmer, Gabriel Bateman, and Maria Bello. Based from the title, it deals with something scary in the dark. And it already getting under our skin.

The supernatural being here is also something new as it lives in the dark. Day or night it can actually attack the people who is linked to "her" past. It is directed by David F. Sandberg and produced by Lawrence Grey, Eric Heisserer, and James Wan (The Conjuring 2).

7 Things You Don't Know About THE CHAINSMOKERS

Image
From ground-breaking performances, to their wild acts, and now a world tour running, these two gents have been storming each country with their addicting productions and this August, they are about to bring the party here to the Philippines! But before we see them live, here are a few trivial facts about a few of their tracks and how this duo came to be!
1. The Chainsmokers pre-performance ritual
Before getting onto the stage, some artists have vocal warm ups and some sweat it out, but for this duo, it’s a different scenario. Imagine them having a few drinks (or a lot in a number of shows) before they turn the stage upside down, or punch each other in the face just to hype the party monsters in them. They also drown themselves with either steak or espressos to turn their bodies up for a massive and unforgettable moment upstage!
