Ready To Hit The Beach In Cinemas With G! LU

We know that it really hot nowadays, but it can get hotter (in a good way) with the newest film by ALV Films called G! LU. The movie brings the hottest hunks in Philippine showbiz with this summer movie which is shot in the beautiful province of La Union.

The film is produced by ALV Filmsin partnership with Benchingko Films and Rein Entertainment. Written and directed by Philip King and produced by Arnold Vegafria, they held the media conference at KAO Manila, Newport World Resorts, Pasay City.

G! LU stars the premiere hunks of Philippine showbiz namely David Licauco, Teejay Marquez, Derrick Monasterio, Kiko Estrada, Enzo Pineda and Ruru Madrid, it also stars Pinky Amador, Michelle Dee, Katarina Rodriguez, Chanel Morales, Maureen Montagne, Sophia Senoron, Kimi Mugford, Ali Forbes, Carl Guevara, Ken Anderson, and Denver Hernandez.

Though the movie has been shot years before, they affirm that the story remains relevant to today's audience as it also deals with mental health and the value of friendship. And also perfect with the summer season which many would like to go out and hit the beach.

The movie tells the story of six boys called the 
 VBC (Valley Boys Club), as they spend seven days in Elyu (La Union) to bond and make great memories. The Valley Boys Crew is a barkada comprised of affluent teenagers. Their friendship began as neighbors in an exclusive subdivision and carried on until their third year of collage in a private university. 

Together, they face the perils and challenges of young adulthood, heightened and complicated by their upper class upbringing.

Their world is turned upside down after a bar altercation sparks their parents’ decision to have them finish their last year of college in different parts of the world. With their looming separation upon them, they embark on their last barkada trip to La Union where their friendship transforms into a real brotherhood.

For G! LU, Vegafria is grateful for having conceptualized a movie that will resonate with the millennial generation. 

He says, “I’m sure today’s kids will identify with the different characters they’ll see in the movie, and can relate to all their coming-of-age problems, especially now that mental health issues have become more relevant.”

Vegafria also thanks the Kapuso network for the support that they have accorded him. 

He says, “I’m very grateful for the trust and support, to the extent that they have acquired the TV rights for the movie.” 

“I’m also very happy for my former Miss World queens – Katarina, Michelle, Maureen, Kimi, Sophia and Chanel – since this is one of their very first movie projects.”

“The local movie industry is definitely on an upswing, and we plan to keep it alive by continuously creating relevant and meaningful content. Hopefully, we at ALV Films can come up with truly unique storylines, and maybe even collaborate with some foreign productions who share our vision for movie magic.”

ALV Films continues to expand their movie projects such as "Because I Love You," "Coming Home," "Malamaya," and "After All," starring Beauty Gonzalez and Kelvin Miranda, and there is also the upcoming film "My Stepmother’s Lover," which stars Sunshine Cruz, Kiko Estrada and Martin del Rosario and expected to be released in June.

G! LU will be in Philippine theaters starting April 24.
