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......»»

ABS-CBN Studio Experience is a dream come true for every Kapamilya

'Answer the phone, someone's calling," they said.   I look at the Celebrity Calling booth, reading the words "Which celebrity will you talk to today?"   Surely it's a recorded message, I thought. Surely celebrities wouldn't actually be calling the booth randomly to video chat with people. But, humoring them, I approached the red phone and picked up the receiver.   The screen in front of me loaded. It was Toni Gonzaga. Awesome, I thought, I really like her movies. I waited for the recorded message to play. But it didn't. Toni looked like she was fiddling with the camera.   "Ayan! Hi!" Toni said, waving. "Sino 'to?"   I stuttered. ...Keep on reading: ABS-CBN Studio Experience is a dream come true for every Kapamilya.....»»

11 years later, Tamara Jenkins returns with ‘Private Life’

NEW YORK (AP) --- Tamara Jenkins has had time to consider why there have been such long stretches between her movies. Her latest, "Private Life",starring Kathryn Hahn and Paul Giamatti as a New York couple struggling with infertility treatments, comes 11 years after her last one, the Oscar-nominated "The Savages". For Jenkins' fans, such prolonged absences (it was nine years following her 1998 debut, "The Slums of Beverly Hills") are a disappointment. For others, it's a prime example of how the movie industry doesn't value its female filmmakers like its male ones. For Jenkins, it's more complicated. "When you're in it, you're like: Is it me or is it them? What makes that proble...Keep on reading: 11 years later, Tamara Jenkins returns with ‘Private Life’.....»»

Indiana Jones hat fetches over $500,000 at auction

Indiana Jones's signature fedora fetched more than half a million dollars at a blockbuster London auction of rare memorabilia from some of the most iconic movies of the past 40 years. But the star attraction--- the sleek jacket worn by the lovable Star Wars scoundrel Han Solo in "The Empire Strikes Back"--- failed to clear the 500,000 ($665,000, 563,000 euros) reserve and went unsold. Organizers said they had "a number of post-auction inquiries" about the space-traveling jacket and were hoping to strike a deal in the coming days. More than 600 costumes and props from much-adored films and television series went under the hammer on the banks of the River Thames. ...Keep on reading: Indiana Jones hat fetches over $500,000 at auction.....»»
