The annual Parade of Stars of the 39th Metro Manila Film Festival is taking place today, December 22.
Metro Manila Development Authority chairman Francis Tolentino, who is also the head of the MMFF Committee, officially kicked off the Parade of the Stars earlier today at the Mall of Asia area.
The floats of the eight official entries are now headed towards Quirino Grandstand.
PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal) gives a peek of the floats taking part in MMFF 2013:
The Robin Padilla-starrer 10,000 Hours is about a cop-turned-senator who is accused by his political enemies. He goes into hiding in a foreign country to search for someone who can help prove his innocence.
The float shows the skyline of the city of Amsterdam where the action movie was partly shot.
Rocco Nacino brings life to the second Filipino saint in Pedro Calungsod: Batang Martir. The float of the religious/historical drama had a ship design to represent the galleon that brought the missionaries to the Marianas (now called Guam).
Vice Ganda stars in Girl, Boy, Bakla, Tomboy, a comedic tale of quadruplets separated at birth. The float design resembled a sleigh in time for the Christmas season.
Starring Sef Cadayona and Yassi Pressman, Kaleidoscope World is a hip-hop dance film that pays tribute to the music of the late master rapper Francis Magalona. An aircon jeepney was used as the float of the movie.
Pagpag, Siyam na Buhay is the only horror movie in MMFF 2013. Daniel Padilla and Kathryn Bernardo star in this movie that depicts traditional Filipino beliefs about death and funerals. Paulo Avelino and Shaina Magdayao are cast as husband and wife in this horror flick.
Comedienne Eugene Domingo and Sam Milby topbill Kimmy Dora (Ang Kiyemeng Prequel), which is touted as the last installment of the comedy franchise. The float is futuristic looking with its metallic colors and giant gears attached to the side.
Boy Golden: Shoot-to-Kill stars ER Ejercito as Arturo Porcuna, a gangster who ruled Tondo in the ‘50s and ‘60s. KC Concepcion serves as his leading lady in this action flick. The float of Boy Golden has a 1960s vaudeville theme.
My Little Bossings is a family comedy topbilled by Ryzza Mae Dizon and James “Bimby” Yap Jr. In this movie, a street-smart girl shares lessons about life to a young boy who is used to a life of luxury. Vic Sotto and Kris Aquino also star in this movie, which had a house as the main design of its float.
UPDATE: At around 4:30 pm, the Parade of Stars already reached the Quirino Grandstand. The first float to arrive was Kimmy Dora (Ang Kiyemeng Prequel).
