Coke Studio Concert Statement

On December 07, 2018, the Coke Studio Concert organizers, Philippine National Police, the City of Pasay, and SM Mall of Asia decided to reschedule the Coke Studio Christmas Concert to early next year to prioritize the public’s safety.
The safety of everyone is of utmost importance to us. The unsafe behavior of portions of an estimated 15,000 spectators such as pushing, jumping on the barricades and throwing bottles, threatened the safety of the rest of the concert-goers, despite numerous reminders from authorities present.
There were some who sustained minor injuries and were immediately given medical attention. After careful assessment, and repeated requests for the public’s cooperation, Coca-Cola together with all the artists, PNP, the City of Pasay, and SM MOA, deemed it necessary to reschedule the concert to a later date.
We thank the PNP, the local government of Pasay, and SM MOA for their full support in helping ensure everyone’s protection, the artists for their passion and fully …

Cindy-Lou Prevents "The Grinch" from Stealing Christmas

In both the original Dr. Seuss book, Cindy-Lou Who is a tiny toddler, “no more than two,” whose interaction with a Santa-Claus-disguised Grinch revolves only around questioning him about why Santa is taking their Christmas tree in the middle of the night.
In Universal Pictures and Illumination’s new version of The Grinch, she’s a little older, and she’s on a mission to trap Santa to ask him to help her over-worked, over-tired mother. “We wanted to find a character who was the antitheses of the Grinch,” producer Chris Meledandri says. “Someone who was incredibly helpful and embodied the optimism that childhood allows us to have. She’s a very positive character, but there’s a certain wisdom to her as well. We talked a lot about why her path was going to cross with Santa’s — or the-Grinch-as-Santa — and giving her a sense of mission and intention. Her determination puts these two characters on paths that we know are going to collide.”

Sylvia Hoeks, From "Blade Runner 2049" to "The Girl in the Spider's Web"

Tattooed cyber-mercenary Lisbeth Salander’s sister, Camilla, has been referenced in Stieg Larsson’s original Millennium novels, but the character has never been included in the film adaptations.
In The Girl in the Spider’s Web, however, Camilla plays a significant role in Lisbeth’s journey. And to play this haunting figure from the film’s protagonist’s traumatic background, director Fede Alvarez (Don’t Breathe) cast Dutch actress and Blade Runner 2049 breakout star Sylvia Hoeks. “I saw her in Blade Runner [2049] and it really blew my mind,” says Alvarez of Hoeks. “She’s so good and so intense and so different, and very unpredictable as an actress. I’m always going for what you don’t expect, and it was a pleasure to work with her.”
