The "It's Showtime" host and the comedienne are joining the South Korean rapper at the SM Mall of Asia Open Grounds on December 20 for his concert titled "The Gangnam Show," the show's promoter That's Ntertainment Productions told ABS-CBN News in a text message.

Aside from Curtis and delas Alas, eight other local personalities will join Psy on December 20: Kapamilya dancer-host Vhong Navarro, comedian Chocoleit, comedienne Pokwang, comedienne-singer K Brosas, comedy duo Wally and Jose, and Nora Aunor impersonator Ate Gay.

The concert, which is also dubbed "The Biggest Christmas Show," will be held for the benefit of Ciara Marie Foundation.

Psy is expected to perform "Gangnam Style," the dance hit that has reached No. 1 in music charts in over 30 countries.

First uploaded in July on YouTube, the music video for "Gangnam Style" now has the most number of views on the video-sharing site. As of writing, it is nearing 892 million views.

Owing to its music video's viral spread online, "Gangnam Style" has become a cultural phenomenon of sorts, spawning countless parodies from different parts of the world.

It also paved the way for the international popularity of Psy, who has since performed alongside other international celebrities, including Madonna.

Kris Aquino, Ai Ai Delas Alas, and Vice Ganda Spread Surprises in the Grand Presscon of 'Sisterakas!'

Published : 12:40 AM Author : Rocky
 

What does Kris Aquino, Ai Ai Delas, and Vice Ganda have in common?! Well, all of them were "Queens of the Blockbuster" movies whom already shared remarkable movies in the history of Philippine Cinemas - Vice for "Praybeyt Benjamin," Kris for "Feng Shui," and Ai Ai for the "Tanging Ina" series.   

What more, Kris and Ai Ai were already faces of the Metro Manila Film Festival, remember Kris' "Dalaw"  in 2010 and "Segunda Mano" in 2011 while Ai Ai's "Ang Tanging Ina N'yong Lahat" (2009), "Ang Tanging Ina Last Na'to" (2010), and "Enteng ng Ina Mo" (2011)?! Meanwhile, this is Vice's very first MMFF movie in a leading role!   

With the combination of these three 'queens' plus today's hottest love team Kathryn Bernardo and Daniel Padilla or popularly known now as the KatNiel, expect for a hilarious blockbuster movie that will surely break the box-office record!             

But for the three lead stars of the movie, they treat this year's MMFF as a friendly competition. Kris and Ai Ai didn't aim to get the Best Actress award since many predicted that the superstar Ms. Nora Aunor could get the title as she got two challenging roles for two different movies namely "Thy Womb" and "El Presidente." "Sige po, kay Ate Guy na lang," Ai Ai said. "But who knows, may Himala! Nandyan pa sina Angel at Angelica (One More Try) na pwede ding mag-uwi ng award," the cast added!       

Kris on the other hand expect that her movie this year will take the No, 1 spot in the box-office and Best Picture's race. "Nung 2010 (Dalaw) kasi nag number 3 ako. Last year (Segunda Mano) naman, number 2. Maybe, it's about time na number 1 naman ngayon," she expressed! Take note that "Sisterakas" is Kris Aquino's very first non-horror movie entry to the MMFF.   

Kris seemed like a fortune teller last year when she predicted that her leading man Dingdong Dantes will take the Best Actor award for his effective portrayal in their movie "Segunda Mano." Therefore a member of the press asked her, "this year, who do you feel will be the best actor, could it be Dingdong Dantes again?!"  Kris immediately replied, "syempre kasama ko nuon si Dingdong kaya definitely, sya ang bet ko na manalo. Eh ngayon di ko na siya kasama. And definitely ang bet ko eh 'ung kasama ko now sa movie di ba! Di ko naman pwedeng sabihin na si Vice 'un eh ayaw naman niyang maging actor!" 

Meanwhile, Vice shared how prepare he is for this movie. "Dati nga isa lang ako kinaya ko, ngayon pa na lima kami (including the two young stars Kath and DJ)," s/he said!



In the movie, Vice and Ai Ai play the character of half-sisters Bernice and Detty. The two were rival sisters. Kris enters the competition as she portrays the character of Roselle! The story somewhat revolves around fashion and clothing!

Meanwhile, Daniel plays Angelo, the godson of Bernice who meets and fall in love with the character of Kathryn as Kathy. She is the daughter of Detty. Xyriel is Kathy's little sister who is also Detty's youngest daughter, the most matured character in the movie!

Hunk DJ Callum David and Brazilian actor Daniel Matsunaga have a special appearance in the movie. Watch out for the kissing scene of Ai Ai and Callum which makes the character of Kris jealous!   

The presscon eventually turned into a Grand Christmas party as Kris, Ai Ai, Vice, and Direk Wenn donated large amount of money which raffled in the last part of the event for the press and bloggers present during the night! Everyone went home happy as majority of the participants got the prizes! Cool!

"Sisterakas" is under the blockbuster director Wenn V. Deramas. It is set to hit all the theaters nationwide on December 25, 2012 being one of the 2012 MMFF movie entries from Star Cinema and Viva Films! Exciting!(www.tvseriescraze.blogspot.com)

Three Queens Unite for One Unkabogable Christmas Comedy Treat “Sisterakas”

Posted in Movies 11. Dec, 2012


Phenomenal Box-Office Star Vice Ganda, Queen of All Media Kris Aquino, and Comedy Concert Queen AiAi delas Alas will pump up the Holiday rush via their unkabogable Christmas comedy movie offering from Star Cinema and Viva Films titled “Sisterakas,” which will hit theaters nationwide beginning December 25 (Tuesday).

Directed by the box-office comedy director Wenn V. Deramas, “Sisterakas” features the highly anticipated first ever onscreen team-up of Vice, Kris and AiAi, who will portray as fierce rivals in the film.
In the story, Vice portray the role of Bernice, a super successful ‘lord of the apparels industry’ and business leader of the Ponytale company who is determined to bring all her opponents down, including her hardworking half-sister Detty (AiAi) whose family refused to help Bernice’s family when they were poor, and Roselle (Kris) the equally brilliant and talented yet eccentric business archnemesis.


In Bernice’s quest to secure her throne as the queen of her industry, although it’s against her will, Bernice will be forced to hire Detty as his 75th assistant. But things get out of hand and the world gets crazier when Detty suddenly becomes an employee–of all people–Roselle!

With the rivalry getting tougher and more intense than ever and severely affecting each other’s intertwined lives, who among Bernice, Detty and Roselle will emerge victorious?

Aside from Vice, Kris and AiAi, also part of “Sisterakas” are Kapamilya child wonder Xyriel Manabat and the sensational teen stars of Princess and I and one of the featured love team in the still showing film “24/7 In Love” Kathryn Bernardo and Daniel Padilla.

Don’t miss the grandest gift of Star Cinema that will surely make the whole family merrier this Christmas–”Sisterakas,” which will be shown on cinemas nationwide starting December 25.

Why 'Sisterekas' is a 'monumental' film

Comedy flick Graded B by CEB

URL: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YYHLgQdFXX0&feature=player_embedded

MANILA, Philippines -- One of the lead stars of "Sisterakas" is confident that the upcoming comedy flick may be the "best thing" to happen to the most popular locally held film festival.

"This is the best thing na nangyari dito sa film fest, kasi ngayon lang kami magkakasamang tatlo," Vice Ganda said in a "Take One" interview chronicling behind-the-scenes development for the project.

In the 38th Metro Manila Film Festival (MMFF) entry, Vice Ganda portrays Bernice, described by scriptwriter Danno Kristoper Mariquit as a "rich gay man who is the lord of apparels."

Bernice unwittingly hires as his secretary his long-lost sister Detty (Ai Ai delas Alas), "isang butihing ina na gusto lang magtrabaho para sa kanyang mga anak."

Kris Aquino, meanwhile, plays the "eccentric Lady Gaga of the fashion industry," whose company rivals that of Detty's.

"Ito 'yung pagsasama ng talagang lahat ay may record sa box-office. 'Yung pagsasama nila alam mong isang malaking bomba, bomba ng katatawanan," the movie's director Wenn V. Deramas of the team-up.

The box-office director worked with Vice Ganda in the 2011 comedy flick "The Unkabogable Praybeyt Benjamin," which is currently the highest-grossing Filipino film of all time.

Dubbed the country's "Queen of All Media," Aquino's decades-long showbiz career is also decorated with numerous box-office successes on the big screen, notably the horror films "Sukob" (2006) and "Segunda Mano" (2011).

For her part, delas Alas is popular for her "Tanging Ina" film franchise, which has become a staple presence at the annual MMFF. The latest in the series released last year, "Enteng ng Ina Mo," went on to become the all-time highest grossing entry to the MMFF.

Of her co-stars in "Sisterakas," Aquino said, "Ipinagkaloob ng Diyos sa kanila 'yung talent na meron sila para makapagpasaya sila ng mga pilipino, and this is a monumental film dahil napagsama silang dalawa."

On Thursday, the Cinema Evaluation Board announced that the film has been Graded B.

Also starring Kathryn Bernardo, Daniel Padilla and Xyriel Manabat, "Sisterakas" hits theaters nationwide on Christmas Day.

MANILA, Philippines -- Despite the box-office success of her movie "Sisterakas," actress-host Kris Aquino is not interested in doing a sequel to the hit comedy film, which also stars her friends Vice Ganda and Ai Ai delas Alas.

In her official Twitter account on Wednesday, Aquino said if ever there will be plans to make a sequel, she definitely will not be part of it.

"If ever, without me na. Sinwerte na, quit while ahead," Aquino told one of her followers on the micro-blogging site.

Despite this, Aquino said she is elated about the comedy film's box-office success.

"30M happy na, 35M super! But God was just overwhelmingly generous!" tweeted Aquino, who will be hosting the Metro Manila Film Festival awards night on Thursday.

After "Sisterakas," Aquino said she will concentrate on her upcoming television series "Kailangan Ko'y Ikaw" with Robin Padilla and Anne Curtis, which begins airing on January 21 on ABS-CBN.

Aside from series, the "KrisTV" host also shared that she is planning a trip abroad with her sisters next year and also wants to renovate her house.

Aquino also said her youngest son, James Yap, Jr., will start Grade 1 in the upcoming school year.

'Sisterakas' widens lead in box-office

ABS-CBNnews.com
Posted at 12/27/2012 4:26 PM | Updated as of 12/27/2012 11:21 PM

MANILA, Philippines -- The 38th Metro Manila Film Festival (MMFF) entry starring Kris Aquino, Ai Ai delas Alas and Vice Ganda has doubled its lead in nationwide box-office over its nearest competitor after two days in theaters.

The Wenn V. Deramas-directed film "Sisterakas" continues to rank first in the list of the highest-earning film entries to the yearly film festival, two days since all eight participating movies opened Christmas Day in theaters nationwide.

At the close of screening in Metro Manila and provincial theaters last Wednesday, "Sisterakas" has turned in a nationwide two-day gross of P71.2 million, according to data from the film fest organizer Metro Manila Development Authority (MMDA).

The figure is almost double the comedy flick's total first-day earnings of P39.2 million.

From an approximate lead of P10 million over the fantasy-comedy film "Si Agimat, Si Enteng Kabisote at Si Ako" after their first day in theaters nationwide, the Star Cinema film is now leading by P23.8 million.

Still ranking no. 2 in the list of nationwide top-grossers as of Wednesday, "Si Agimat" has turned in P47.4 million in earnings from Metro Manila and provincial theaters after two days.

Starring Judy Ann Santos, Vic Sotto and Sen. Ramon "Bong" Revilla, Jr., the movie's first-day gross nationwide was P29.4 million.

The drama movie, "One More Try," starring Dingdong Dantes, Angelica Panganiban, Angel Locsin, and Zanjoe Marudo, managed to turn in more than P10 million on top of its first-day earnings of P13.1 million nationwide.

The Ruel Bayani-directed film, which is also a Star Cinema entry, has grossed P24.3 million in Metro Manila as well as provincial theaters as of Wednesday.

Now on its 14th installment -- its eighth consecutive entry to the annual MMFF -- "Shake, Rattle & Roll" ranks fourth in the list of second-day top-grossers nationwide. It has so far garnered P16.7 million.

As of posting, no data for the second-day earnings of the other four film entries has been released.

At Christmas Day closing, the remaining four film ranked as follows in terms of nationwide earnings: "The Strangers," "El Presidente," "Sosy Problems," "Thy Womb."

According to MMDA chairman Francis Tolentino, MMFF requires participating theaters in Metro Manila to give equal screening opportunities to all film entries at the start of the film fest. The number of screenings per film, however, may be subject to "sliding" or adjustment based on the earnings of each movie.

Tolentino, in an earlier interview, also said provincial theaters are not within the jurisdiction of the MMFF. Thus, equal screening opportunities for the film entries may not be ensured at opening day and in subsequent screenings.

The awards night of the 38th MMFF will be held on Thursday at the Meralco Theater in Ortigas.

Entries to the film fest will run in theaters until January 8, 2013.

Kris 'shocked' by 'Sisterakas' as 3rd Best Film

ABS-CBNnews.com
Posted at 12/28/2012 8:16 PM | Updated as of 12/28/2012 8:16 PM

MANILA, Philippines -- Despite her confidence in the box office pull of "Sisterakas" early on, lead star Kris Aquino did not see the comedy film taking home one of the top honors at the 38th Metro Manila Film Festival (MMFF).

Directed by Wenn V. Deramas, "Sisterakas" was named Third Best Picture at the awards night held Thursday at the Meralco Theater in Ortigas.

Aquino, who hosted the awarding ceremony along with KC Concepcion, admitted shortly after the event that she had not expected the film to rank among the Emilio Aguinaldo biopic "El Presidente" (Second Best Picture) and the family drama "One More Try" (Best Picture).

The actress-host also expressed gratitude to moviegoers who continue to support "Sisterakas," which also stars Vice Ganda and Ai Ai delas Alas.

"Na-shock talaga ako doon. Pero thank you talaga. May I just take this opportunity... na sobra kaming hindi makapaniwala sa box office receipts na binibigay niyo po sa amin," Aquino said.

At the close of screening in Metro Manila and provincial theaters last Wednesday, "Sisterakas" has turned in a nationwide two-day gross of P71.2 million, according to data from the film fest organizer Metro Manila Development Authority (MMDA).

The figure is almost double the comedy flick's total first-day earnings of P39.2 million.

Along with the other seven MMFF entries, the Star Cinema film opened in theaters nationwide last Tuesday.

According to Aquino, "Sisterakas" is projected to surpass the P100 million mark on Friday. "Napakalaking regalo po niyan, at sana po lahat kayo nasisiyahan at natutuwa sa napapanood ninyo," she said.

Aside from the Third Best Picture award, the comedy flick was also recognized with the Best Supporting Actress trophy for the portrayal of Wilma Doesnt as Vice Ganda's confidant.

After 'Sisterakas' success, Vice Ganda seen as Dolphy's successor

By Reyma Buan-Deveza, ABS-CBNnews.com
Posted at 12/28/2012 2:02 PM | Updated as of 12/28/2012 2:03 PM

MANILA, Philippines -- The chief organizer of the 38th Metro Manila Film Festival sees Vice Ganda as a successor to the late veteran actor Dolphy, who is dubbed as the Philippines' "King of Comedy".


Vice Ganda

Vice Ganda stars alongside comedienne Ai Ai delas Alas and actress-host Kris Aquino in Star Cinema's MMFF entry "Sisterakas", which has doubled its lead in the nationwide box office over its nearest competitor after only two days in theaters.

The movie has turned in a two-day gross of P71.2 million.

In an interview on the ABS-CBN morning show "Umagang Kay Ganda", Metropolitan Manila Development Authority chairman Francis Tolentino believes that the box office success of "Sisterakas" is proof that Filipinos are looking for comedians who can follow in the footsteps of Dolphy, who died due to chronic obstructive pulmonary disease last July.

Tolentino said Vice Ganda may be considered as a successor to the country's King of Comedy because of his ability to make people laugh.

Vice Ganda starred in the 2011 comedy film "The Unkabogable Praybeyt Benjamin", which is the country's highest grossing Filipino movie of all time.

"Alam niyo po noong pagkamatay ni dakilang Dolphy, siguro naghahanap ang ating kababayan ng ilang kapalit. At nakikita natin dito 'yung trend, parang si Vice Ganda ay lumalabas na isa talagang malakas humatak. Nakikita natin 'yung evolution ni Vice Ganda na isang top-grossing multi-artist," the MMDA chairman said in an interview on the ABS-CBN morning show "Umagang Kay Ganda".

"Kahit bumagyo sa Visayas, sa palagay ko ay ganito na po ang magiging trend at mayroon tayong long weekend itong New Year, palagay ko lalong pipila [sa 'Sisterakas']," he added.

Meanwhile, Tolentino hopes that this year's MMFF will surpass the P636-million earnings of the festival in 2011.

"Kahit kahapon pumipila ang ating mga kababayan hindi lang sa 'Sisterakas' kung hindi sa ibang pitong pelikula at inaasahan natin na mabi-break natin ang record na P636 million last year," he said.

Other nationwide top-grossers in this year's MMFF, based on two-day sales, include "Si Agimat, Si Enteng Kabisote at Si Ako" with P47.4 million; "One More Try" with P24.3 million; and "Shake, Rattle and Roll 14" with P16.7 million.

AiAi delas Alas shares what roles she is most effective in portraying

12/30/2012 9:48 PM
by: Bernie Franco


“Happy and contented and peaceful.” Ito ang sagot ni AiAi delas Alas nang tanungin siya ni Boy Abunda sa "Ikaw Na!" portion ng Bandila this week sa estado ng kanyang buhay. Ayon pa sa Comedy Queen, makulay raw ang kanyang buhay ngayon. Bukod sa magandang career, may love life din ang aktres.

Kung mayroon man bahagi ng buhay niya na natatawa siya, ito raw ay ang kanyang “kalokahan” noon sa kanyang buhay pag-ibig. Hiwalay si AiAi sa kanyang unang asawa kung kanino siya nagka-anak ng tatlo. Sa ngayon ay happily in a relationship si AiAi with a non-showbiz guy.

Sinang-ayunan naman ni AiAi ang tinuran ni Boy na sa lahat ng ginagawa ng Comedy Queen ay ibinibigay niya lahat ng kanyang makakaya. “Sobra… sa work, sa pamilya, sa pag-ibig, lahat full blast. Walang half-half,” paglalarawan ng aktres. 

Sa tagal na rin sa industriya ni AiAi, alam na raw niya ang kanyang kakayahan at kung naibigay na ba niya ang best niya sa isang eksena.

Pinakaepektibo raw siya sa acting kapag mother at wife roles ang ginagampanan niya. “Siguro ‘yun nga ang pinaghuhugutan ko, ‘yung buhay ko no’n. Alam natin na adopted ako, pag ganitong tungkol sa mga bata, masyado akong sensitive,” pag-amin ng komedyante.

Puring-puri naman ng aktres ang kanyang co-star sa pelikulang Sisterakas na si Vice Ganda dahil sa bilis ang isip nito. “Si Vice kasi napakabilis (mag-isip). Masyadong matalino, so marami siyang sinasabi. Ako sa aktingan, du’n mo ako maaasahan, pero sa ganyan ang bilis, ang dami niyang nasasabi agad.”

Inihalintulad din niya si Vice kay Kris Aquino na isa pa nilang kaibigan at co-star sa nangungunang Metro Manila Film Fest entry ngayon. “Pareho sila ni Vice, mabilis magsalita, mabilis mag-isip ng punch line.”

'Sisterakas' Poised to be Philippines' Highest Grossing Film of All Time
Posted on January 6, 2013 | 12:48 PM

Star Cinema and Viva Films' Sisterakas starring  Kris Aquino, Ai Ai Delas Alas and Vice Ganda is now on track to becoming the Philippines' highest grossing film of all time. The blockbuster comedy is said to have surpassed the P300 million mark in less than 2 weeks.

With this feat, there's a huge possibility that Sisterakas will bump off Vice Ganda's The Unkabogable Praybeyt Benjamin, currently the highest grossing Filipino film of all time.
