The plot thickens in Angelito: Ang Bagong Yugto as both Angelito (JM De Guzman) and Raffy (John Prats) fall deeper into the trap of Larry Samaniego (Eric Fructuoso).

Larry has total control over Angelito and Raffy’s families and even Rosalie (Charee Pineda) already took the bait after she accepted his offer to work in his school. His evil plan doesn’t end as he uses Angelito and Raffy’s rift to further fire up the tension between them.

Larry hires Raffy to become his new business partner which would mean that Angelito must report to Raffy at work.

Where will this new twist take them? How long will Larry manipulate their lives? Will Rosalie finally give in to Larry?

Don’t miss Angelito: Ang Bagong Yugto, weekdays after It’s Showtime on ABS-CBN.(www.tvseriescraze.blogspot.com)


For those who missed the first two episodes of GMA's newest primetime drama program "Pahiram ng Sandali," it's time to catch up on its exciting story. The series stars Dingdong Dantes (Alex), Max Collins (Cindy), Christopher de Leon (Philip) and Ms. Lorna Tolentino (Janice) with Alessandra de Rossi (Baby), Mark Gil (Larry), Sandy Andolong (Thea), Neil Ryan Sese (Andrew), Isabel Rivas (Diana), Kristofer Martin (Franz), among others.

Here's a summary of the said episodes:

The story began with a scene in the middle of a hostage crisis.  An exasperated bolo-wielding man threatens to end the life of an elderly woman whom he held hostage out of despair over his marital problems.

Meanwhile, an aspiring journalist named Alex Santiago (Dingdong Dantes) applies as an intern under the tutelage of Romer Alcaraz (Roy Alvarez), a veteran hard news reporter and columnist of the tabloid, "Pinoy Reporter."

As a test, Romer Alcaraz challenges Alex and three other aspirants for the job to go and cover the on-going hostage crisis and come up with a plausible news story.  Whoever gets the best angle to the story gets the job.

Alex accepted the challenge but as soon as he returns to where he had parked his motorcycle, a woman hurried away with it.  He would later learn that the woman's name is Cindy and that she had escaped from her boyfriend who attempted to take advantage of her.  


Even without his motorcycle, Alex still managed to reach the site of the hostage-taking.  In his attempt to get the best viewpoint of the scene, he climbed up the roof of the house where the hostage taker and his hostage were and took a snapshot using his mobile phone through a hole in the roof.  But the structure wasn't strong enough to support his weight and so it caved in and ultimately Alex came crashing down to the floor. He fought with the infuriated hostage taker, and just as he thought he had knocked him down, he received a heavy blow on to his head from the hostage who owned the house. In the end, Alex lost his motorcycle, then his consicousness and, finally, his bid for the job.

Flashback to Alex's childhood.  Alex is an illigitimate child; He grew up not knowing who his real father is, and so he was always a favorite victim of bullies at school.  He was called by his classmates "putok sa buho" which is a derogatory phrase used to mock children who were born out of wedlock.

No longer able to withstand the bullying, Alex engaged in a fistfight with his classmates. The incident dismayed Alex's mom, Thea (Sandy Andolong). Alex demanded that his mom tell him who his father is.  In the end, Thea was left without a choice but to tell him the whole truth: that Alex's father is Larry Gomez (Mark Gil), the managing editor of "The Philippine Examiner," considered the most respected and most influential newspaper in the country.

Thea attempted to introduce Alex to his father but when she brought the boy to him, Larry drove them away.  He even offered them money and when a coin dropped to the ground, he told the boy he could take it as well.  Since then, Alex developed deep hatred against his father.  It worsened when Alex saw how much Larry loved JR, his son with Diana Gomez (Isabel Rivas), the woman who was instrumental in catapulting Larry to his present stature.

Back to present time, Thea married her suitor Berting who turned out to be a batterer.  One day, Berting beat Thea so badly that she had to be rushed to the hospital because of an injury to her spleen.  She needs to undergo a major treatment but she has no financial means to do so.

Meanwhile, Alex found out that a photo of him taken during the hostage taking incident was published in Romer's column. Infuriated, he stormed the columnist in his office.  On his way out of the building, he saw Cindy as the latter was returning his motorcycle.  He confronted Cindy for stealing his motorcycle.  Alex left hugely disappointed and accidentally drops the tabloid he was holding.  Cindy picks it up and reads about the man's misfortunes.  She felt guilty for what she did and began to feel pity for him.

Cindy learns about what had happened to Alex's mom and pleads with her Tito Larry and Tita Diana to provide Thea financial assistance (the couple has a foundation). What she did not know is that Larry is Alex's father.

Thea went through the operation thanks to Cindy's help.  Alex returns the favor by teaching Cindy how to ride a motorcycle.  This is how the two became close and eventually will become lovers.

Alex learns how wealthy Cindy's family is and gets intimidated.  But because he loves Cindy so much, he figured he should strive hard to become rich and give Cindy the kind of life that she deserves. But Cindy came to him one day and told him that they CAN'T be together.

Watch how this story continues to unfold in "Pahiram ng Sandali," airs weekday nights on GMA-7.(www.tvseriescraze.blogspot.com)

ABS-CBN’s top caliber family drama series, “Ina Kapatid Anak” topbilled by Kim Chiu, Xian Lim, Enchong Dee and Maja Salvador trounced its newest rival program in GMA by almost 16 points.

Based on the data from Kantar Media on Monday (November 26), “Ina Kapatid Anak” garnered 32.9% national TV ratings, while the pilot episode of its latest competition "Pahiram ng Sandali” only got 17.5%. The Kapamilya series also ruled its timeslot last Friday (November 23) with 31.9% national TV ratings, or almost 14 points higher than the final episode of "Coffee Prince: Pinoy Version" which only got 18.2%.

Meanwhile, the plot of “Ina Kapatid Anak” continues to thicken now that Julio (Ariel Rivera) already found Teresa (Cherry Pie Picache). Will this be the start of more heated confrontations between their families? Will Teresa be forced to reveal Celyn’s (Kim) real identity or will she keep on hiding it?

Don't miss "Ina Kapatid Anak" every night, after "Princess and I" on ABS-CBN Primetime Bida. (www.tvseriescraze.blogspot.com)
Kapamilya young hunks namely Enchong Dee, Rayver Cruz, and Gerald Anderson were put together as the the newest endorsers of the Blackberry phone! 

Here is a glimpse of the three hot guys endorsing the said phone model: 


Gerald and Enchong were already united before in the TV series like "My Girl,"  and "My Only Hope" in ABS-CBN. Meanwhile Gerald and Rayver will star together in the upcoming ABS-CBN teleserye "Bukas Na Lang Kita Mamahalin" with Cristine Reyes and Ms. Maricel Soriano.  

Good job guys! Keep up the good work!(www.tvseriescraze.blogspot.com)

The much awaited teamup of Angel Locsin and Coco Martin for the upcoming ABS-CBN teleserye will not anymore prosper for the meantime! Angel then is replaced by Erich Gonzales as Coco's leading lading in the epic series "Juan Dela Cruz!"

Angel and Coco is supposed to be paired in the said fantaserye granting the wishing of million viewers. But due to certain circumstances, the 'dream love team' is postponed!       

According to reports, Angel is given a new teleserye this coming 2013 so she needs to pull out from this project. Hmmm...do you think this said TV series project for Angel is "Darna," "Imortal Part 2," or a fresh new teleserye?! 

You may recall that way back in 2010, Angel is supposed to be paired with Vhong Navarro in the fantaserye "Si Kokey @ Ako," but Angel was also pulled out and replaced with Toni Gonzaga since Angel was given a bigger TV series which was "Imortal" with John Lloyd Cruz. Now will history repeat itself in this case for "Juan Dela Cruz"?!


Meanwhile, Erich replaced Angel for this teleserye. And they were starting tapping for the series.

"Juan Dela Cruz" is supposed to be one of the entries to the MMFF 2012 but it was rejected along with 6 other scripts. Therefore, Deo Edrinal decided to put it instead in a TV series. 

"Juan Dela Cruz" will be ABS-CBN's opening salvo for 2013. It is helmed by Malu Sevilla.   

Now that Angel is out and Erich is in, are you excited for Coco Martin's comeback in Primetime TV series with new leading lady?!(www.tvseriescraze.blogspot.com)

The battle for the best TV station is now getting stiff. Today, three giant networks were battling for the said title. The competition among ABS-CBN 2, GMA-7, and TV5 in different aspects is now strongest as each of them were offering new and fresh treats to the viewers. 

It's hard to choose among the three networks to give the title of being the Best or Favorite TV Network of the Year since all of them were truly giving the best that they can give. Yes, the three were really best in giving the service to the audience. But still, there is a so-called the "Best among the Bests!" Of the three, still there is one on top. Or better say, there's ONE that truly leading the race! And for TV Series Craze, ABS-CBN is the ONE that stands out among the others!   

Since TV is the specialty of TV Series Craze, we had looked into different areas why ABS-CBN emerged as our choice. And these are the following:

Balanced Programming - ABS-CBN didn't only focused themselves in one type of program. Rather, they offer variety of TV programs to the audience. They have the legendary news program which is "TV Patrol," the longest-running drama anthology which is the "MMK," an original noontime variety show like "It's Showtime," a talent search shows which leading the competitions like "X-Factor Philippines," an extra-ordinary showbiz talk show like "SIR," hit-reality show like "PBB," live-comedy show like "GGV," cooking show like "Pinoy Master Chef," and of course a phenomenal hit TV series like "Walang Hanggan" to name a few.
 
Innovative - ABS-CBN always open new trends. They always offer something new to the audience which the other station followed. You may recall that the Kapamilya network started the first fantaserye on TV which is "Marina" in 2004, the first reality show franchise "PBB" in 2005, the remaking of a movie into TV series like "Bituin Walang Ningning"  in 2006 or a previous hit teleserye in modern times like "Mara Clara" in 2010, the first advocacy-serye via "Budoy,or even a wonderful symbolic Station IDs every season (Summer, Rainy, or Christmas, ABS-CBN has its respective SIDs). Even the DZMM Teleradyo is also a first from the Kapamilya network! Can you name some other innovations ABS-CBN pioneered?!
 
Brightest Talents - Yes, ABS-CBN has the power to give a star a brightest name! With their Star Magic which is the No. 1 Talent Center in the country, they give rise to the brightest stars of today like Piolo Pascual, John Lloyd Cruz, Coco Martin, Bea Alonzo, Kim Chiu, Gerald Anderson, etc. Even the stars who transfered from the other networks rose in fame in the Kapamilya like Cristine Reyes, Iza Calzado, Jake Cuenca, and Paulo Avelino. And of course, they were able to give brightness to the child wonders like Zaijan Jaranilla, Mutya Orquia, Bugoy Carino, and Xyriel Ann Manabat.
 
Equal Oppurtunities - It simply says, ABS-CBN gives equal opportunities to their talents. Newbies or big stars, they give chances to lead in particular TV show or TV series. Remember Julia Montes, Kathryn Bernardo, Zaijan Jaranilla, and Andi Eigenmann? They lead in their very own TV series before even though they have no names!       

Multi-Media - ABS-CBN didn't only focus themselves on TV. Rather, they spread their wings on different forms of media like in movie (Star Cinema), radio (DZMM), music and recording (Star Records, MYX), cable TV (SkyCable, Destiny), OFW Channel (TFC), print media (ABS-CBN Publishing - StarStudio, Chalk, The Buzz, Metro, etc.), and internet (iWantTV).

Leading the Race - In terms of nationwide TV ratings, box-office gross of movies, top hit songs, poll survey, ABS-CBN is leading. I wouldn't anymore talk about this part. The audience is already speaking on it!

Public Affair and Social Responsibility - Still, ABS-CBN is in the top of the race! The Kapamilya network started their very own Bantay Bata 163, the Sagip Kapamilya, or the Lingkod-Bayan which commenced before in "TV Patrol." 

The True Home of TV Series - In terms of creating dramas or teleseryes, ABS-CBN is truly the best! The stories they shared to viewers were really in deep plot. In this area, ABS-CBN is really the best and unbeatable! They pioneered everything in this field - longest TV series (Mara Clara, 5 years from 1992 to 1997), longest-running drama anthology in Asia (Maalala Mo Kaya), first Asianovela (Meteor Garden, 2003), first fantaserye (Marina, 2004), first Koreanovela remake (My Girl, 2008), first fashion-serye (Magkaribal, 2010), first robot-serye (e-Boy, 2012), first advocacy-serye (Budoy, 2011), first action-serye (Basta't Kasama Kita, 2002), first movie remake to TV (Bituing Walang Ningning, 2006), first TV series remake (Gulong ng Palad, 2006), first kantaserye (Bituin, 2002), first morning-serye (Be Careful With My Heart, 2012) and anything first! What more can you add?! ABS-CBN even coined the terms "teleserye" and "fantaserye" which we previously called soap operas!      

Well, these are some of the reasons why ABS-CBN is our choice for the 2012 Netizens' Choice Awards Favorite TV Station of the Year! What's yours?! 
 
The Netizens' Choice Awards is a joint project of LionHearTV, Starmometer and Showbiznest. (www.tvseriescraze.blogspot.com)
A controversial  story will be featured this Saturday, December 1, 2012 in the longest-running drama anthology in Asia, "MMK."  It will tackle the story of two bisexual lovers played by Carlo Aquino and Joem Bascon.

Here are some of the important scenes that we should watch out this Saturday: 







Kevin (Carlo) and Alan (Joem) are both bisexuals who just met thru a casual sex. Soon they found themselves falling in love with one another and eventually entered in a relationship.

Their affair was filled with happiness until they knew that Kevin was infected with HIV (human immunodeficiency virus) and his case was already in AIDS (acquired immune deficiency syndrome) condition.

This is another touching episode of "Maalaala Mo Kaya" this Saturday. Catch it right after “Wansapanataym" on ABS-CBN.(www.tvseriescraze.blogspot.com)


Well-acclaimed actors Carlo Aquino and Joem Bascon will portray bisexual lovers in the upcoming heavy drama episode of "Maalaala Mo Kaya" this Saturday (December 1).

Kevin (Carlo) and Alan (Joem) are both bisexuals who just met thru a casual sex. Soon they found themselves falling in love with one another and eventually entered in a relationship.

Their affair was filled with happiness until they knew that Kevin was infected with HIV (human immunodeficiency virus) and his case was already in AIDS (acquired immune deficiency syndrome) condition.

Later on, Kevin confessed to Alan that he acquired the virus because of engaging in casual hook ups with his clients.

What will happen when Alan discovers that Kevin infected him with AIDS? Will their life-threatening disease be more powerful than their love for each other?

Together with Carlo and Joem in their “MMK” episode are Bodjie Pascua, Chanda Romero, Toby Alejar, Roeder Camañag, Laiza Comia, Kyra Custodio, Miguel Morales, and Leo Rialp. It was researched by Akeem Jordan Del Rosario, written by Benson Logronio, and directed by Nuel C. Naval.

"24/ 7 in Love" is the biggest movie offering of the year which combines the brightest and the biggest stars of the country. This is Star Magic's treat to its 20 years success being the country's strongest and No.1 talent center.

The movie is now a box-office hit! On its first day of showing last November 21, 2012, it earned a whooping Php10 Million! People were truly captivated by the movie!  

Well, I have list down the reasons why "24/7 in Love" is a good movie to watch and why people were falling in love with it.

Here are the 24 Good Reasons to Watch "24/7 in Love:"

1.) This is the very first time in Philippine Cinema that there is a movie with 7 Episodes! Before, we  used to love movie in trilogy or in 3 episodes (like the "Shake, Rattle, in Roll" series). Until Star Cinema started a movie with 5 episodes ("Cinco") and now they pioneered a 7-Episode movie via "24/7 in Love." It's another breakthrough in the history of Philippine movie industry!

2.) Another first movie which brings together the 15 biggest and the brightest stars of the country. Piolo Pascual, John Lloyd Cruz, Angelica Panganiban, Bea Alonzo, Zanjoe Marudo, Xyriel Ann Manabat, Zaijan Jaranila, Maja Salvador, Diether Ocampo, Kathryn Bernardo, Daniel Padilla, Pokwang, Sam Milby, Gerald Anderson, and Kim Chiu were all in the leading roles! And take note, billing is not an issue among them!

3.) The movie is not all about an ordinary love story. Instead, it gives life to 7 different love stories such as friendship love, puppy love, age-doesn't matter love, genderless love, love with no status, true love, and love of work to name a few!        

4.) The movie features a real-life love teams like Zanjoe Marudo-Bea Alonzo and John lloyd Cruz-Angelica Panganiban.

5.) The movie also features the hottest and the most-loved love teams in the country namely the KathNiel (Kathyrn Bernardo and Daniel Padilla) and the Kimerald (Kim Chiu and Gerald Anderson).  

6.) The movie marks the very much awaited reunion of Kim Chiu and Gerald Anderson. Kimerald was last seen in the movie "'Till My Heartaches End" two years ago. Fans were truly missing them together. Their episode in the movie was the strongest and well-supported by viewers!

7.) The movie is experimental! It gives chance to paired for the first time Pokwang and Sam Milby and Dither Ocampo and Maja Salvador. Yup, the two pairs were not yet paired before in either movie or TV Series Projects! Their chemistry as pairs were all tested in the movie!  

8.) The movie gives another challenging role for the country's Ultimate Heartthrob and Leading Man Mr. Piolo Pascual. Piolo's character in their episode is extra-ordinary as he portrayed a 35-year old man having a mind of a 7-year old. He removed for the meantime his hunk and sexy hot image to give justice to his character!

9.) Aside from Piolo, Zanjoe Marudo was also given a challenging role in the movie as he played a gay-role in the movie. This is also his very first time to play the said role in the big screen although he was seen before playing gay characters in some segments of "Banana Splits."

10.) The movie pays tribute to the hit OPM music. Yes, some of the classic OPM love songs we used to love before were used as OST in the different episodes of the movie. Some of these were "Bakit Di Totohanin," "Mr. Cupido,"  and "Nanghihinayang."

11.) The movie is hemmed by four young directors namely Mae Cruz, Dado Lumibao, John-D Lazatin, and Frasco Mortiz.

12.) The country's most-love Prince of Indie Films turning Mainstream Primetime Actor Coco Martin has a special part in the movie. Though he only played a cameo role in the film, his character is very significant as he portrayed Dante. Loud screams followed when he appeared in one of the episodes of the movie.



13.) For the first time, comedy actress Pokwang will have a bed scene! Yeah, she is so lucky to have different sexy scenes with the country's hunk rockoustic actor Sam Milby!

14.) The movie also serves as a 'hunk fest!'  You will ask for an extra rice as the Star Magic hunk actors (except for Piolo Pascual) namely Sam Milby, Zanjoe Marudo, Diether Ocampo, and Gerald Anderson exposed their sexy yummy hot bodies in their respective episodes! Sizzling!  

15.) We love the way how the 7 stories in the movie were interconnected in the end. You will see how the stories will related to each other in the finale.

16.) The movie offers all the genres - drama, comedy, action, romance, sexy. Each episode gives a unique flavor which differs the story from one another!

17.) Each story in the movie leaves a lesson in life. It's not just a collection of love stories which intended to put 'kilig' in the audience. Rather, it gives something meaningful to the audience after watching the film.

18.) The movie gives equal opportunities to each Star Magic talent. Even though some of the stars already have big names, they still manage to play small roles in the movie like Coco Martin, Kaye Abad, and Joem Bascon. The movie is truly a very own Star Magic movie!

19.) The official movie poster of the movie is another best and creative poster Star Cinema ever produced. It gives equality to the stars breaking the issue of billing. And take note, there's no name of stars in the poster. The pictures speak for themselves proving how known they were!

20.) The movie also gives chance for the newbie talents to take part in the film even on its official soundtrack. Newbies Young JV and Myrtle Sarroza starred in the music video instead of giving the tasks to other big stars or singers of the talent center.

21.) The movie even produced life-sized photo boards of the 15 lead casts which is also another proofs how huge this movie is!

22.) It's good to know that the movie directors are able to put 7 stories in one big movie with equal emphasis and with equal length of time. It seems that you're having a movie marathon while watching the film since you are seeing 7 different stories!

23.) Everyone can relate to the film since aside from the different love stories featured in the film, the "end of the world" issue was also tackled! I love how the film started with Marc Logan reporting making you feel like watching a documentary-drama!

24.) And last but not the least, it's for you to find out after watching the movie!

Truly, "24/7 in Love" is another great movie from Star Cinema! Another milestone has been achieved because of this movie. Two thumbs up and congratulations to its success! Good job! (www.tvseriescraze.blogspot.com)

Surprise and excitements in the mood of the viewers filled the Cinema when the full trailer of "One More Try" was shown during the Premiere Night of "24/7 in Love." Loud screams filled specially when the killer lines between the lead casts were heard!  

Angelica's character is somewhat antagonist in the movie. She will put pain and suffering to the character of Angel. Angel on the other hand will do anything just to save the life of her only child!

What captured the attention of viewers was the last part of the trailer. This was when Angel said "Pahiram ng Asawa Mo" to Angelica! Louder screams followed!

So exciting...! We really can't wait and see "One More Try!" The story is too controversial. I'll post the full trailer here in this site later on! Another must see movie from Star Cinema.(www.tvseriescraze.blogspot.com)

The movie is his first movie teamup with Piolo Pascual (though the two already starred together in the recently hit movie "24/7 in Love" in two different episodes).

Gerald and Piolo will play opposing roles in the movie. Gerald is Daniel, an inmate who will turn into a hitman/professional killer. Piolo on the other hand, plays the character of an NBI agent who will hunt Daniel. His character is torn between his duty, his conscience and his family.   

Here is a video clip from ABS-CBN news wherein Gerald and Piolo talked about their exciting characters. Gerald also shared his excitement about his new 'bad boy' appearance. Let's all watch this:



"Sobra, sobra. That's what excites me yung iba ang role, iba ang character, iba ang script at kung paano kukunan. Iba yung set, may feeling ako na lahat magle-level up ," Gerald shared via interview.

Gerald is very much fitted in the different action-drama series like "Tayong Dalawa," "Kung Tayo'y Magkakalayo," "Isla," and "Tiyagong-Akyat" that's why he is now dubbed as the "Action-Drama Prince." But in his latest TV series "Budoy," Gerald showed his heavy dramatic side! This movie is actually his action comeback.

"OTJ (On The Job)" is under the direction of Erik Matti (Tiktik: The Aswang Chronices) and will also star Joey Marquez, Joel Torre, Angel Aquino, Rayver Cruz and Leo Martinez. This is under Star Cinema.

It's another must-see movie!(www.tvseriescraze.blogspot.com)

It seems that a reunion of the "24/7 in Love" cast is taking place this Saturday in the country's No. 1 sitcom "Todamax!" Yup, three of the casts namely Sam Milby, Maja Salvador, and Kim Chiu are visiting Beverly Hills joining their co-star in the movie Pokwang.

The guesting of the three brightest Star Magic stars is part of the sitcom's one year anniversary offering. At the same time, the three are there to promote the latest Star Cinema movie "24/7 in Love." You may recall two weeks ago, Erich Gonzales and the tandem of Jessy Mendiola and Matteo Guidiceili also visited the show for the promo of "Suddenly It's Magic" and "Paraiso."

What do you think will be the three's impact to the mainstay of the show?! We'll wait and see.

Meanwhile, this is the second time of Kim to visit the show. We may recall that in her last year's guesting, Kim had a cooking showdown with Angel Locsin! So exciting!(www.tvseriescraze.blogspot.com) 
“Toda Max” won big in the PMPC Star Awards for Television recently after it received three awards out of its five nominations. The sitcom took home the Best Comedy/Gag Show Award, Best Comedy Actor Award for Robin Padilla and Best Comedy Actress Award for Pokwang. 

Robin and Pokwang’s co-nominees Vhong Navarro and Angel Locsin were delighted with the win of their co-stars. “Even though I didn’t win, just the thought of getting nominated for the Best Comedy Actress category is overwhelming for a first timer in comedy,” said Angel.

Robin also thanked PMPC and the sitcom’s loyal viewers. “It feels so great knowing that we already received two prestigious awards only after a year of airing,” he said. A big thank you to our viewers and to PMPC,” he said.

The sitcom received the same award from the Catholic Mass Media Awards recently.

Meanwhile, to continue the month-long anniversary of the sitcom, Direk Bobot Mortiz and Tirso Cruz III will visit Beverly Gil’s St. as Tatay Mac’s (Al Tantay) friends and band mates as well as Isabel’s (Angel) godfathers. The two will be excited to see Tatay Mac upon bumping into Isabel but the latter will inform her godfathers that her father still has a grudge towards them. Tol (Robin), Justin (Vhong), Isabel and Lady G (Pokwang) will try their best to reunite the three.

Watch the full coverage of the 26th PMPC Star Awards for Television this Sunday (Nov 25) on ABS-CBN’s “Sunday’s Best.”(www.tvseriescraze.blogspot.com)

For the first time in Philippine Cinema, 15 of the biggest stars and four top-caliber young directors in the country will join forces to bring the moviegoers to star-studded movie event of the year from Star Cinema--"24/7 In Love," the 20th anniversary film offering of Star Magic which will hit theaters nationwide on November 21 (Wednesday).

Under the direction of Mae Cruz, Dado Lumibao, John-D Lazatin, and Frasco Mortiz, "24/7 In Love" features seven episodes that shares different love stories topbilled by the love teams of Piolo Pascual, Zaijan Jaranilla, and Xyriel Manabat; Bea Alonzo and Zanjoe Marudo; Sam Milby and Pokwang; Diether Ocampo and Maja Salvador; Daniel Padilla and Kathryn Bernardo; Kim Chiu and Gerald Anderson; and Angelica Pangilinan and John Lloyd Cruz.

According to Direk Mae, who handled the episodes of Bea-Zanjoe, Kimerald, and Kathniel love teams, the movie was so grand that it almost seemed like a Star Magic Ball event.

"It's definitely an event in Philippine cinema to have all these actors together," said Mae. "Para siyang isang malaking reunion! Imagine, the biggest stars of Star Magic and ABS-CBN sa mapapanood sa iisang pelikula lang. Talagang sulit na sulit ang bayad ng tao kasi ang daming stars plus maraming kuwento ng pag-ibig ang nandito."

Direk Dado, meanwhile, shared his excitement over the unique concept of their film. "Naiiba siya in a way na its episodic but each episode is tackling love, pero iba-iba nga lang aspeto ng pagmamahal," said the director of the Piolo-Zaijan-Xyriel episode. "Sa episode namin 'yung love na wagas ang focus. It may be very young, it may be the people na hindi pa mature mag-isip, pero pagdating sa pag-ibig ay kaya nilang gumawa ng desisyon."

Just like his fellow filmmakers, Direk John-D felt the extra-ordinary 'star power' of "24/7 In Love." That was why when he was offered to direct the Maja-Diether and John Lloyd-Angelica episodes, he instantly said 'yes!'

"This is a once-in-a-lifetime movie event na handog ng Star Magic at Star Cinema para sa mga lahat ng fans," said Direk John-D. "Sobrang laki ng movie sa dami pa lang ng artista..This kind of movie only happens once. So we’re all positive and we’re all in this together for the film."

On the other hand, Direk Frasco could not believe at first when he was asked to be part of the film, since he just had his first movie "The Reunion" shown this year.

"Natuwa ako kasi another opportunity ito na gumawa ng bagong bagay na hindi ko pa nagagawa sa television," said Direk Frasco, who was in charge of the Pokwang-Sam episode. "Sa buong movie, may mga moments na magre-reflect ka rin kasi feeling ko bawat isang kuwento dun sa may mga taong makaka-relate. For me it’s a story about life. Kasi at the end of the day, kung magugunaw man ang mundo, hahanapin mo 'yung taong mahal mo."

Also part of "24/7 In Love" are other Star Magic artists including John Lapus, Maricar Reyes, Jayson Gainza, Matt Evans, Nina Dolino, Joseph Marco, Jason Francisco, Helga Krapf, Andrei Felix, Seppi Borromeo, and Ian Rusell.
