Regal Entertainment’s maiden offering for 2018, the inspirational drama “Mama’s Girl,” opens tomorrow in cinemas nationwide. The movie is headlined by Sylvia Sanchez and Sofia Andres, Regal Babies both.
Roselle Monteverde said, “We want to start the year by giving our audience something that will inspire them more to embrace change, make more time for the people who matter the most, and live life to the fullest. The film will try to bridge the gap between the thrill-seeking millennials and the overly concerned older generation. Lahat tayo may matututunan sa pelikulang ito.”
On the other hand, Sylvia, who’s always been busy with top-rating teleseryes, considers “Mama’s Girl” a big blessing, it being her first movie for the new year. “Thanks to Mother Lily for making me part of this project. Napakasarap ng feeling na maging bahagi ng isang proyekto na alam mong may magandang mensahe. Kung sa ‘Greatest Love’ at ‘Hanggang Saan’ ay nakita niyo ako na isang mártir na ina who can sacrifice everything for her child, dito sa ‘Mama’s Girl’ I play a different role – isang makabagong ina, millennial mom at fighter siya!”
Sylvia believes a lot of people can relate to her and Sofia’s characters in the movie. “Single mom man o hindi, lahat ng nanay ay magsasabing naranasan nila ang pinagdaanan ni Mina.”

Judy Ann Santos and Angelica Panganiban star in Star Cinema’s initial offering for 2018, “Ang Dalawang Mrs. Reyes” which opens tomorrow. Star Cinema joined forces with Quantum Films and The IdeaFirst Company in bringing to the screen the film by Jun Robles Lana (“Die Beautiful”).
Both Juday and Angie expressed excitement over being teamed up for the first time in a movie, especially in this laugh-out-loud dramedy. This is also Juday’s comeback to mainstream cinema, after “Kusina,” shown at the 12th Cinemalaya Film Festival in 2016. Angelica also returns to the big screen after winning the FAMAS Best Actress award recently for her performance in “The Unmarried Wife.”
More than being a film about infidelity, “Ang Dalawang Mrs. Reyes” is a story about two women who will discover the great lengths they are willing to go through for love. In the movie, Juday and Angie play strong characters who are opposites: One is a successful career woman while the other is a homemaker. The only similarity between them is their strong desire to win back the love of their respective husbands.
Playing leading men to them in the movie are Joross Gamboa and JC de Vera who both said they love their respective roles as married gay men.
