Filipino moviegoers are in for a treat as they will be the first in Asia to experience the new Hollywood sci-fi thriller Freaks. This exciting and critically acclaimed film will be released in the Philippines on August 23 ahead of its premiere date in the United States (September 13).

In this award-winning thriller, a disturbed father played by Emile Hirsch locks his bold 7-year-old daughter (Lexy Kolker) in a house, warning her of grave dangers outside. But the mysterious Mr. Snowcone (Bruce Dern) convinces the girl to escape and join him on a quest for family, freedom, and revenge.

Freaks is a highly acclaimed film that is described by critics and viewers alike as a “genre-bending” feature that will appeal to fans of thrillers looking to be shocked and surprised in the theaters. It is also a treat for viewers who want to dissect their movies and TV shows like puzzles so they can solve the mystery before the film reveals its mind-boggling twist. 



Freaks received a standing ovation during its premiere in the Toronto International Film Festival in 2018 and has garnered positive attention for its writer-director duo Zach Lipovsky and Adam Stein. Inspired by Stein’s own experience as a new father, the filmmakers “wanted to explore a father’s unbounded love and desire to protect his child, coupled with a parent’s exhaustion, inadequacy, temper and guilt.”

“Parents sometimes shield children from the whole truth about the world. For a child who is different, the world can be a cruel place. In addition to a grounded father-daughter story, we aimed to make a film that reflected current stories of parents and children in a time of xenophobia and prejudice,” Lipovsky and Stein added.

Like its directors, critically acclaimed actor Emile Hirsch (who also stars in the upcoming Quentin Tarantino film Once Upon A Time in Hollywood) immediately connected with the film’s theme. “Freaks was a script that spoke to me as I read it, in a most intimate and personal way. Like my character, I’m also a father, and the dynamic between the father and daughter, and the deep bond and stresses that the script explored -- almost felt like it had been written for me, personally,” Hirsch shared.

Check out the film's trailer below:


Besides Hirsch and Dern, Freaks boasts of an impressive cast, which also includes Grace Park (TV’s Battlestar Galactica and Hawaii Five-0) and Amanda Crew (HBO’s Silicon Valley). The Hollywood Reporter praises the movie’s “tight-knit ensemble” and singles out young Kolker’s performance as the “feisty little girl determined to protect her family.” The film’s directors are all praises for Kolker, calling her “a true discovery, a charming girl who could stand her ground with veteran actors. When unleashed, Lexy was truly fierce, a powerful force that had no limits, just like her character Chloe.”

Kolker was chosen by Lipovsky and Stein after combing through 1,200 audition submissions. The young actress is best known for her work on the USA network action thriller, Shooter, playing the daughter of Ryan Phillippe for its 3 seasons and running. Most recently, Kolker filmed a multi-episode arc in the popular series Marvel’s “Agents of Shield”.

Freaks is Lipovsky and Stein’s debut feature length film, but already critics are praising the movie and hailing it as a “must-watch.” io9 declares that Freaks is a “wonderful, exciting film. Stein and Lipovsky stuff Freaks with limitless imagination, finding ways to execute their loftier ambitions. It’s a film filled with complex, robust ideas that not only have a unique twist to them but a realistic grounding that makes them more relatable and impactful.”

The movie will be released in the United States by WellGo USA.

“Freaks” is distributed locally by TBA Studios. It opens in Philippine theaters nationwide, starting Friday, August 23, 2019. 08/24/2019 (TV Series Craze)

For ABS-CBN, celebrating 65 years of being in the service of the Filipino means remaining committed to help those in need. That is why when it brings back the ABS-CBN Ball on September 14 at Shangri-La The Fort, it will continue what it started last year – to bring hope to underprivileged children, this time through the Bantay Bata 163 Bantay Edukasyon program.

The coming ball will give the stars and other attendees the chance to provide children in need the tool to reach their dreams, through scholarships.


With the program, all of the children’s basic needs to help them have a normal education, from complete tuition assistance, to meal and transportation allowances, school supplies, and other fees, will be covered.

Under the program, the children and their families receive counseling and are provided self-development sessions, as well as training on basic life skills through social work intervention. This includes values formation and parenting sessions, the Resiliency Program, which helps scholars determine their strengths and weaknesses; music, arts, and sports programs to teach them the value of discipline in their lives; and more recently, even a digital workshop to help expand the children’s choices of possible careers.

Bantay Bata 163 implemented the Bantay Edukasyon program in 1998 to serve as an aftercare service for rescued children. It has since provided 6,400 scholarships all over the country since it started.

This year’s affair essentially continues what it started last year, which helped successfully re-open the Bantay Bata Children’s Village, and gave a group of underprivileged children a new home.

Watch the Bantay Bata 163 video below:


The Ball will also honor ABS-CBN Foundation and Bantay Bata 163 founder Gina Lopez. Under Lopez, Bantay Bata 163 rescued thousands of children from physical and sexual abuse and eventually provided what she considers her greatest achievement for it, the Children’s Village in Norzagaray, Bulacan. The Village is now more than a shelter and rehabilitation area for children as it has become a benchmark for childcare excellence.

The 2018 ABS-CBN Ball gathered a total of P5 million, which was used for the construction and rehabilitation of the structures of the village, CCTV training for social workers, the installation of a call and paging system, a Library, and a multimedia room.

Since the Bantay Bata Children’s Village opened its doors last December 2018, it has already served 46 children. Five of them have already reunited with their families while 41 are still in the village.

After the success of the Primetime teleserye "Toda One I Love," Kapuso's so-called Action-Drama Prince Ruru Madrid returned. But this time, he is set to dominate the music scene! Ruru launched his newest single, "Nawawala."

Friday afternoon of August 16, simultaneously,  the official music video of the said song was live streamed in YouTube and in Facebook. An exclusive solo media conference of Ruru then followed where the actor-singer answered interesting questions from the bloggers, vloggers, and media/press people.



According to Ruru, he got a stream of emotions upon hearing the musical arrangement. He shared that there is a lesson behind the lyrics. "The first time na binigay nila sa akin ito, nagulat ako talaga. Ang ganda at damang-dama. Everytime na may ginagawa tayo sa buhay natin, i-apply natin 'yung mga natutunan natin sa past."

Ruru attributes his early musical influence to his dad who used to be a member of a band when he was young. He had previous recordings including "Let the Love Begin," the theme song of the GMA Primetime series with the same title and "Sa Yakap Mo" for the primetime soap "Sherlock Jr.," both in duet with Kapuso actress Gabbi Garcia. Hence, their loveteam called GabRu  was born.




On our interview with Ruru, he shared the story why they came up with that kind of song. He even revealed the idea behind its music video. In addition, the actor further shared his showbiz plans such as doing more albums, writing new songs, having a concert, and doing a movie in the rival network like what Alden Richards did via "Hello Love Goodbye." And guess who's Kapamilya leading ladies Ruru wants to be paired with if that new movie collaboration takes place? Yeah, they're no other than Bea Alonzo and Liza Soberano!

Here is our full live video coverage of Ruru's exclusive interview:



Meanwhile, here is the official music video of "Nawawala" featuring Ruru Madrid:



"Nawawala" music video is directed by Miggy Tanchanco featuring the Kapuso star Kelley Day. The song is composed by Kettle Mata, Roger Alcantara and Enzo Villegas. It is described as emotional expressing 'hugot' which gives Filipino listeners delight in today's music scene.

Once more, congrats Ruru for this new project - a new single "Nawawala" which will truly captivate our hopelessly romantic hearts! The song is now available in different music platforms such as in Spotify and in Apple Music! 08/17/2019 (TV Series Craze)

Their appearances eventually turned trending topics in Social Media. Netizens were really excited to know if what twist in the story their characters will bring.



The Angel Locsin cameo took place on the Thursday, August 8 episode of the series.
