Regal Films and STUDIO 5 and has unveiled the official movie poster and teaser for their 2011 MMFF entry “Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow.” Maricel Soriano reunites with Gabby Concepcion in the 2011 MMFF entry from Regal Films titled “Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow.” this upcoming MMFF movie is totally different according to its director Jun Lana. Also starring in “Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow (2011)” are Carla Abellana, Jericho Rosales, Agot Isidro, Ronaldo Valdez, Solenn Heussaff, Dennis Trillo, Paulo Avelino, Lovi Poe and introducing TV5′s Star Factor winner Eula Caballero.
Last night, I was also one of the new media invited to graced the Red Carpet of Yesterday, today and Tomorrow Premiere Night. Most of the casts also at the Premiere with some other celebrity friends. For everyone’s information. Yesterday, today and Tomorrow is not a remake of 1986 movie also from Regal starred Maricel with Vilma Santos.
STORY: Ronaldo Valdez role is the father. He has two children from his first marriage,Maricel Soriano, who’s separated fromGabby Concepcion, and Jericho Rosales, who’s married to Lovi Poe, a singer who gave up her career for love and later rebels against her controlling husband. Maricel and Gabby have a daughter, Eula Caballero, who hates her mom. Gabby is about to marry a younger woman, Carla Abellana, then he meets Maricel again and their romance is rekindled. Ronaldo’s second wife is Agot Isidro and their only daughter is Solenn Heussaff. Solenn is already tired and bored with her boyfriend, Paulo Avelino, and gets attracted to a hunky gym instructor, Dennis Trillo. The trouble is she doesn’t know that Dennis is the kept boy of her mom, Agot. So they get to share the same man. Yayo Aguila plays a rich matron who was also Dennis’ lover when he was still working as a macho dancer and gigolo. Also in the cast are Joem Bascon and Nadine Samonte as TV stars working in Maricel’s network. There will be a big devastating earthquake in the movie and the conflicts in the story will all come out because of that.”
Maricel Soriano, after watching her stellar performance on YTT, impressed with her brilliance as an actress. She’s consistently one of the finest actress in our country. Her attack was indeed memorable that you would feel the intense on every scene. I think Aiai Delas Alas or Kris Aquino will have a hard time beating Maria’s acting. She’s my bet for Best actress for this year.
Gabby concepcion. I remember when Gabby concepcion come back from US and then he did another Filmfest entry with angelica Panganiban and Derek Ramsay. His role in Yesterday, today and Tomorrow is remarkable and superb. Though sometimes I find it hard to differentiate his acting with his other roles from other projects but I think he gave justice to the role as ex husband and a father.
Carla Abellana. Her acting is nice. Actually this is the first time I watched her on a big screen. I give her a nod on this movie. Lovi Poe is also good and experimental. I love how Direk Lana gave the scene to Lovi on a certain situation. The rolling camera gave her the exposure everyone wants to see in her as an actress. Jericho Rosales acting is the same. Me being exposed with Jericho Rosales acting in all series in ABSCBN. I think what he did is just fine. Sad that his role is predictable in this film. But I still get carried away in all of his attack. For Agot Isidro and Ronaldo Valdez, they were the best person to do the role. Nothing more nothing less.
Solenn’s performance is sexy. I think I started to like her as a new TV/Movie Personality. She’s one of the character in this industry that has unique style and élan. With her role in the movie, I think I agree that she has to focus speaking in tagalog so the masses will accept her more. But all in all I like her. Way to go Solenn!
Dennis Trillo and Paulo Avelino. Oh man! They were the film’s sexiest persona. They contributed most of the bed scene and I would say that Paulo is getting hotter and hotter. Denis Trillo’s role is very refreshing. Happy that he enjoyed giving life to his reprising role. I love his line, “Sawa na kong maging mahirap. Gagamitin ko sila para umangat” very challenging. For Eula Caballero, I find her very pretty and fresh. As a daughter of Maricel and Gabby I think she gave justice to the role. Sadly, not enough exposure in the film to prove her craft in Drama. I would love to see her more acting on a big screen.
I love Direk Jun Lana’s works. and I realized I have seen some of them. He directed Kulam with Judy Ann Santosand Tarot with Marian Rivera. Of course I first met him during the press conference of My Neighbor’s wife. Before I know him as a screenplay writer. I have seen Sa Pusod ng Dagat in 1998, he wrote the script for Marilou Diaz-Abaya. It won the Best Screenplay award at the Brussels International Filmfest. Other films he wrote are Jose Rizal (1998, Best FAMAS Screenplay award) and Bagong Buwan (2001). He has also written script for sex-dramas like Sa Paraiso ni Efren (1999); Red Diaries (2001); and Bedtime Stories (2002). Other films he wrote are Saranggola (1999); Soltera (1999); and the rom-com I Think I’m in Love (2002) starring Piolo Pascual and Joyce Jimenez.
I think hes a really good script writer. In Yesterday, today and tomorrow. The story was well written. I didn’t find it hard to understand the interrelationship between the characters. Though there are some dialogues in the movie that I wished would have been rewritten. Like the line “Im tired and I don’t have enough energy to argue” was used twice by Solenn to Paulo and Gabby to Carla.
All in all the movie is good. With the absence of MANO PO series in the Filmfest, I think Yesterday, today and Tomorrow is the best Drama entry for this year. In fairness, I didn’t predicted some of the scenes on the film. Nice movie for me. Im expecting Best Actress Award for Maricel Soriano.
Regal Entertainment brings Lovi Poe, Solenn Heussaff and Carla Abellana together in its Metro Manila Film Festival entry, Yesterday, Today, Tomorrow (YTT).
Lovi, Solenn and Carla rose to fame on the strength of not just their pretty faces, but also their charisma and acting mettle.
Showbizlandia has found its latest sensation in Solenn, who has no qualms in displaying her sexy figure. She first made a mark in the industry as a castaway on GMA 7’s Survivor Philippines Celebrity Edition.
Her participation in the show resulted to a movie contract with Regal’s Lily Monteverde and Roselle Monteverde-Teo who introduced Solenn to the viewing public via My Valentine Girls opposite Richard Gutierrez.
Her big screen debut was followed by an appearance in the successful remake of Temptation Island. Shortly after, Solenn tried her hand at singing for which she won in this year’s Aliw Awards Discovery of the Year category.
Solenn’s popularity soared even higher when she agreed to endorse Ginebra San Miguel’s 2012 calendar. To date, her calendar and her debut album are selling like hotcakes.
The statuesque beauty and former model says she’s more comfortable showing off her svelte form. That’s why director Jun Lana found no difficulty in convincing Solenn in doing sexy beach and lovemaking scenes with Dennis Trillo in YTT.
“I like my body, so, bakit naman ako aarte pa? Besides, I like my role here. So there’s nothing to be ashamed of. Magugulat na lang ang lahat sa gagawin ko sa movie, hahaha!” says Solenn, who plays Maricel Soriano’s half-sister in the film.
Carla, on the other hand, plays a strong–willed woman engaged to Gabby Concepcion.
After fanning male moviegoers’ fantasies in her first daring movie, My Neighbor’s Wife, Carla pits acting talent with Maricel in the movie.
Many say the screen neophyte managed to hold her own against the award-winning actress in their confrontation and dramatic scenes.
Carla has proven her acting potential when she received a citation for her performance in the Punerarya episode of last year’s Shake, Rattle & Roll 12.
Lovi may be considered as the most experienced given her versatility in portraying characters.
The public loved her in My Neighbor’s Wife. She has also shown her bankability in Aswang.
In YTT, Lovi shines in her dramatic scenes with real-life crush Jericho Rosales.
As Lovi essays a noticeably more wholesome role in YTT, she believes baring and daring before the cameras isn’t the only way to show her appeal.
Lovi, Solenn and Carla will rock the big screen come Christmastime. So, better watch out for them.
