The latest adventure of your friendly neighborhood super hero delivered a stunning P292.5-million debut from 678 screens during its first five days of release (July 3 to 7).  That box-office haul enabled Far From Home to demolish three significant records -- All-Time Biggest Opening Weekend for a Columbia Pictures Title, All-Time Biggest Opening Weekend for a Spider-Man film (33% higher than Spider-Man: Homecoming) and All-Time Biggest July Opening Weekend.   

The Tom Holland-starrer also bested the opening weekend grosses of recent super hero titles Black Panther (P251.6-M) and Aquaman (P230.5-M).

Spider-Fans Will Not Feel Far From Home With The Special Fan Event.

Says director Jon Watts, who previously helmed the blockbuster Spider-Man: Homecoming and, before that, the acclaimed independent drama Cop Car: “We were always looking for a way to deal with some very emotional themes while remaining true to the tone we set in Spider-Man: Homecoming.”

“This next Spider-Man adventure takes place soon after and fits right in to the events of Avengers: Endgame,” says producer Kevin Feige.  “Peter and the world are dealing with the loss of Iron Man, and Peter just wants to take a break to be a regular teenager.  But Spider-Man can’t be a regular teenager – he has responsibilities toward the world, especially now.  So when Nick Fury tracks him down on his summer vacation to deal with a new threat, that’s what Peter will have to face – is he ready to step up?”

Marvel Studios’ Avengers: Endgame breaks opening day records in Philippine box office

Much like how Thanos snapped his fingers to wipe out half of the population of the entire universe in an instant, the much-awaited release of Marvel Studios’ Avengers: Endgame obliterated Philippine box-office records on its opening day. 

Bringing a decade’s worth of action and storytelling to an epic conclusion, Avengers: Endgame smashed local opening day box office records as it opened with P205,676,345 (US$ 3,880,685) in 970 screens, with select cinemas starting at 6:01am and some holding 24-hour screenings. 

The fourth film in the Avengers franchise and the 22nd film in the grand Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU), Avengers: Endgame broke the opening day record of 2018’s Avengers: Infinity War, making it the biggest opening of a Marvel film in Philippine cinemas to date.

New Actress Lashana Lynch Plays Carol Danvers' Trusted Ally in "Captain Marvel"

Behind the triumph of every super hero is a trusted ally.  For Carol Danvers (Brie Larson) aka Captain Marvel, it’s the strong-minded Maria Rambeau (Lashana Lynch), a former test fighter pilot and Carol’s best friend and loyal confidante.

Carol and Maria’s friendship is just one of the many highlights and why Filipino fans have embraced Marvel Studios’ “Captain Marvel.”  The film’s recent five-day opening weekend ranks as the all-time 4th biggest in Philippine history, as well as the highest first stand-alone character MCU opening weekend, and biggest March opening weekend ever.

SM Cinema Takes the Captain Marvel Launch to the Sky

SM Cinema is flying high with Marvel Studios’ Captain Marvel as the Philippines’ largest film exhibitor kicks off its Captain Marvel campaign!

SM Cinema recently launched the Captain Marvel Fan Experience at the SM City North Edsa – The Block Atrium. Marvel fans got a chance to crash-land to the world of Captain Marvel in an interactive exhibit to celebrate the movie’s release in the Philippines.

Captain Marvel - Did It Soar To Expectations?

For a movie that will headline a marvel Heroine, Captain Marvel faces a lot of high expectations and even comparing it to DC's Wonder Woman. Also as it comes before the upcoming Endgame movie this April, it seems that these are the biggest challenge Carol Danvers has to face aside from her enemies in the film.

Captain Marvel is indeed an origin movie that dates back to the 90's, one of the few films in the MCU which goes back in time like Captain America The First Avenger. Though this one is much more recent and key characters like Nick Fury and Agent Coulson appears in their more younger years.

Brie Larson takes on the character which involves the space beings like the Kree and Skrulls. Closely linked to Guardians of the Galaxy, the conflict goes  to Earth as Vers (Captain Marvel) was led to Earth to find a essential person that will reveal his past.

The film comes late in the MCU that despite the flair and power she possess, it seems like it was not exceptional in terms of innovation like Black Panther. But the story is essential in building the MCU with the plot and connections it has with the heroes, villains, and the infinity stones leading to Endgame.

Captain Marvel Streams Live From Singapore At The Block

February 14 was not only for Valentine's but also a day for Marvel fans who are excited as the cast and directors of the upcoming film Captain Marvel comes to Singapore! The celebration was also felt in Manila with a special exhibit at the Block SM north EDSA.

Bringing the vibe of the film, SM Cinema built stations at the activity center which lets the public experience the movie in different ways like a photo station, games, merchandise, and one for GMovies.

Bringing the Costumes to Life on "Ant-Man and The Wasp"

Clothes may make the man, but an extraordinary suit makes for a spectacular Marvel Studios’ “Ant-Man and The Wasp.” These two unique heroes need very unique suits—shrinking and growing means movability is a factor—and it needs to look good no matter what size realm you reside in.

Head of Specialty Costume Ivo Coveney worked on the first Marvel Studios’ “Ant Man,” and found the experience so rewarding, he was happy to come back for “Ant-man and The Wasp.”

Paul Rudd Scales Up: Scott Lang's Heroism Looms Large in "Ant-Man and The Wasp"

For Scott Lang, there’s no shrinking from responsibility when it comes to family.  

When we last saw Scott Lang in Marvel Studios’ “Ant-Man,” he was trying to go straight for the good of his daughter Cassie. Now three years later, Marvel Studios’ “Ant-Man and The Wasp” will allow us to find out if Scott stayed on that path for the good of his family.

Paul Rudd, who reprises the role of Scott Lang/Ant-Man in Marvel Studios’ “Ant-Man and The Wasp,” reassures  that Scott is still doing the best he can. While that gives the fans hope, you never know when it comes to the Marvel Cinematic Universe; there’s always a super villain out there who tends to bend things to their will.

When it came to stepping back into the shoes of the reluctant Super Hero facing the unimaginable, Rudd took on a singular approach. “One of the things that I really like about playing this character is that Scott is thrown into these extraordinary circumstances of shrinking and flying around on ants and dealing with life-threatening situations,” says Rudd. “I’ve always tried to sustain his way of dealing with everything with a sense of humor and a carefree attitude. I think it gives an audience a fun ride to see somebody like Scott Lang take in all of this craziness. So, for me, that’s fun to play.”

Ant-Man and the Wasp - Smaller and Bigger at the Same Time!

We may still be recovering from Infinity War, but to fill that void is the last MCU movie of 2018, Ant-Man and the Wasp. Bringing the team up of Ant-Man Scott Lang and now Hope Van Dyne now suited up as the Wasp are together for a new mission and disovery.

The timeline close and within the infinity war corridor it will provide answers to their connection to the "Snapocalyse". But before that they have to battle a new foe, and discover the secrets and power of the quantum realm which Scott has been to in the first movie. This calls for the throwback team up of the original Ant-Man and the Wasp which is Hank and Janet.

One of the villain they have to face is Ghost who can phase through almost everything, something they were not prepared for. There is also the appearance of Bill Foster also known as Goliath who also used a super suit to become "Giant Man". And there will be a lot of shrinking and expanding in this  movie which was also a hit with the first one. Based on the trailer, there is huge salt shaker and Hello Kitty Pez which was hilariously amazing. 

Venture into the Quantum Realm with a Piip of a button

Much has been said about Marvel’s Avengers: Infinity War after it ended. People have been speculating, even formulating their own theories about the fate of their favorite superhero. And then there are those who are left thinking, where were the others like the infamous Hawkeye, Thor’s Valkyrie, Black Panther’s Nakiya, even the Ant-Man and the Wasp? Even Captain Marvel had her share of the silver screen through her insignia at the end.

 Where could they have been during all those fights? Could Ant-Man and the Wasp be in the Quantum Realm? With Piip’s latest marvelous promo, Piipsters have an opportunity to see what Scott Lang and Hope van Dyne are up to for as low as Php 150.00 during the first screening day of the Ant-Man and the Wasp on July 4, 2018, 7:30PM, at the Gateway Cineplex, Gateway Mall, Araneta Center.

Marvel Studios’ Avengers: Infinity War Now the All-Time Biggest Grossing Movie in the Philippines

Marvel Studios’ “Avengers: Infinity War” continued to make history at the Philippine box-office as it became the All-Time Highest-Grossing Movie in the country after only six days of release.

Cementing its phenomenal run, the epic action-adventure achieved the stunning feat with a gross of P730.1 million, outpacing Disney’s 2017 live-action “Beauty and the Beast” whose entire run of P677.1 million formerly held the record.

Avengers: Infinity War - Epic In All Proportions!

We have been waiting for almost a decade for an epic movie that would make new records at the box office and Avengers: Infinity War is that movie. As #ThanosDemandsYourSilence, we like to make this review spoiler free as respect for its filmmakers, fans, and even regular movie goers and of course it is the right thing to do.

A quick recap of the last few movies shows the direction going to this movie. The pivotal Civil War tested the Avengers with members in great conflict with their principle. Of course there is Spider-Man Homecoming that brings the spider hero finally part of the MCU. Black Panther is the last film to complete the roster of heroes who is set to face the biggest threat that comes from space, Thanos. From the earlier Avengers movies, his appearance has already hyped fans for the future encounter. But it was not immediate and we only see him in post-credits. Now he has arrived and we have mixed emotions.

True to Marvel Cinematic Universe fashion, action and comedy is the main reason why we love the film. Yet there have been also some dramatic scenes that were also yet incredibly moving, as certain death/s are imminent. The race to the infinity stones has never been so very tense as the objective of obtaining them would come with a heavy price and various ways of fighting.

Avengers:Infinity War Cast Surprised Us On Marvel Fans Day!

It was supposed to be a regular Marvel fans day for the anticipation of Avengers: Infinity War at SM Cinema in Megamall, but it turned out to be more epic than that. We were  usually expecting to have a day of cosplay, giveaways, prizes and some trailers. But we were treated to something more that shocked us.

But before the revelation, there was also a moment for great cosplayers who nailed it in their costume bringing to life their favorite characters in the MCU. Impressive and notable cosplayers for me include Iron Man, Rocket Raccoon, Baby Groot, Proxima Midnight and of course, Thanos. Giveaways were also a win with many merchandise from partnered brands like Goldilocks, Folded and Hung, Alaska, and GMovies.
