Director Irene Villamor defends Nadine Lustre from critic who called her ‘flop queen’

Director Irene Villamor recently came to the defense of actress Nadine Lustre after a basher called her "flop queen" online. Following the success of "Sid and Aya: Not a Love Story," which saw Anne Curtis and Dingdong Dantes together on the big screen, Villamor is now working on her next film, "Ulan," which stars Carlo Aquino and Lustre. Aquino took to his Instagram recently and shared a photo of him and Lustre shooting a scene for the movie. In Aquino's post yesterday, Oct. 15, he and Lustre are seen standing in the rain in what looked like a jeepney stop in the University of the Philippines Diliman campus in Quezon City.

Catching Up with The Truth: ONE Heavyweight World Champion Brandon Vera talks BuyBust experience

It’s been a while since we’ve seen ONE Heavyweight World Champion Brandon “The Truth” Vera compete inside the ONE Championship cage. The last time Vera was in action was back in December of 2016 when he defended his title against Japanese challenger Hideki Sekine in Manila, winning via first round-TKO. And while “The Truth” hasn’t been active in mixed martial arts competition, that doesn’t mean that he’s been just sitting around, chilling. Far from it, in fact. Aside from getting married and taking care of some outside-competition matters, Vera has been quite busy on the silver screen. The 41-year old Fil-American booked his first major movie gig as part of the highly-successful action movie BuyBust, where he plays Rico Yatco, a member of an anti-narcotics squad in the Philippines. For Vera, the whole experience of being part of a movie is something that he says he looks forward to doing more in the future. “It was amazing, definitely something I look forward to doing after I’m finished with my competition side of martial arts, I absolutely loved it,” Vera shared with ABS-CBN Sports. Directed by famed Filipino movie director Erik Matti, BuyBust also features veteran actors such as Anne Curtis and Victor Neri among others. The experience, Vera says, is a ‘dream come true’ for him. “Working with Direk Erik, Ms. Anne Curtis, Victor Neri, Tito Levi [Ignacio], you know just working with that group of people and seeing the level of where I want to be, projects are coming my way now, it’s, I don’t know how to describe it, I don’t know how to explain it,” he said, “it’s beyond a dream. Most people dream to just get into a movie, I was put into a movie with all of those superstars. All I can do is thank my blessings everyday that I was able to do something like that.” Being a life-long mixed martial artist, Vera is no stranger to pressure and performing in front of large audiences. Having to “perform” so to say, for his BuyBust director and co-stars however, he admits, was a different beast altogether. “What do you think?” Vera responded with a chuckle. “First movie out? Okay, the lead is Anne Curtis. The director is Erik Matti. Then the names just kept on rolling. The pressure was definitely there, but Direk Erik said I did really good with the pressure, I just didn’t want to let the team down, that’s how I felt the whole time, I just didn’t want to let anybody down. From the directors, to the production, the cast, the crew that was working on set, I didn’t want to mess up for anyone. Definitely pressure, but I think that’s what helped us get through it,” he continued. Asked if he expected BuyBust to be as big as it was, Vera admitted that he didn’t know what to expect. “I had no idea. This was my first anything, so I had no idea. I didn’t get nervous, I wasn’t nervous for the world premiere in New York, I wasn’t nervous about that until before we left. We might have been already on the plane when I asked Anne, ‘Is this your first one?’ and she was like ‘Yeah, this is my first one.’ When she said that, it’s like it hit me in the face. ‘Oh my God, oh my God this is a big deal!’ That’s when I started getting nervous. I couldn’t believe what was going on,” he said. The experience as a whole, Vera says, was not simply a reason to be thankful, but rather a reason to keep working and keep striving to get better. “I’m just lucky, I’m lucky and blessed, that’s why I don’t complain about anything, just keep going forward and I keep training hard,” Vera added, “I keep going to Tagalog classes, I keep going to acting workshops, I have no right to complain, all I can do is get better. There’s too many people who put their faith in me for me to fail, and I just wanna keep grinding and getting better, and I realized all of this before, during, and after the shoot.” For now, however, Vera says that he’s more than excited to make his long-awaited return to the ONE Championship stage. While there’s no announcement yet with regards to his next title defense, the champ hopes to be able to do it on the upcoming ONE: CONQUEST OF CHAMPIONS card in Manila on November 23rd at the Mall of Asia Arena. The card also features a highly-anticipated ONE Lightweight World Championship bout between Filipino martial arts hero Eduard “Landslide” Folayang of Team Lakay and Singaporean knockout artist Amir Khan......»»

ONE Heavyweight World Champion Brandon Vera says acting on BuyBust ten times harder than competing

Brandon "The Truth" Vera is the ONE Heavyweight World Champion for a reason. The 41-year old Fil-American is a life-long mixed martial artist, and a very good one at that. Unbeaten on the ONE Championship stage, has been able to dispatch all three of his opponents with relative ease in under just one round. Recently however, the champion admits facing a challenge that was ten times tougher than competing inside a mixed martial arts cage. Vera recently got his big silver screen break as part of the widely-successful Erik Matti action movie BuyBust, starring alongside Anne Curtis and Victor Neri. This was Vera's first foray into the acting world, and he says that it is way more challenging than competing in mixed martial arts. "Having to shoot a movie with Director Erik was way harder. It was way way way harder," Vera said without hesitation, "I would say maybe ten times harder?" The reason being, Vera continues, is that inside the cage, all he has to worry about is himself and his opponent. In front of the camera on the set of a movie however, the dynamic changes. "The only reason why is because I have to worry about everything else except me. You know? Like I have to worry about everything else, except me, except for certain points in time. The rest of the time I’m worried about everyone else," he added. Much like working on a team, sharing a scene with fellow actors entails working together, something that Vera doesn't have to worry about inside the mixed martial arts cage. "In martial arts, in this event, I’m just worried about me and the person standing across from me in the ring.” Once his professional mixed martial arts career is over, Vera admits that he’s looking to be more active in movies as well. “It was amazing, definitely something I look forward to doing after I’m finished with my competition side of martial arts, I absolutely loved it,” Vera said of his BuyBust experience. For now however, it’s back to competition for the reigning ONE Heavyweight World Champion, as he hopes to be able to defend his title in the upcoming ONE: CONQUEST OF CHAMPIONS on 23 November at the Mall of Asia Arena in Manila. Brandon Vera may be a budding action star in the future, but for sure he’s a mixed martial arts star now, and in the cage is where he is at his best......»»

‘BuyBust’ is a blood-and-guts winner

DALY CITY, California -- "BuyBust" is a gritty drama about the ongoing drug problem in Manila. It stars Anne Curtis as antinarcotics operative Nina Manigan, who has just survived the slaughter of her entire team in a failed drug bust. Curtis,in this film, may just have reinvented herself as the quintessential female action star of Filipino movies. One can almost forgive the overwrought and overly long fight sequences that feature her, because they feature her.   Filipino movies seem to have progressed exponentially in terms of production quality over the last 20 years. Gone is the hissing sound of the open air in the background audio when a scene is shot outside the sound ...Keep on reading: ‘BuyBust’ is a blood-and-guts winner.....»»
