Aside from Rhian, Marvin Agustin, Alden Richards, Derrick Monasterio, and Lexi Fernandez are also expected to attend the red-carpet event.
Their movie will be shown in cinemas in the United States beginning May 11 (May 12 in the Philippines).
Directed by Yam Laranas, The Road will also be shown in six theaters in Singapore beginning May 15.
In the Philippines, The Road will be shown again in cinemas starting May 9.
During the send-off party of The Road held earlier today, May 3, at the 17th floor of GMA Network Center, members of the press had the chance to interview Rhian.
MO TWISTER. What are the cases that Rhian filed against ex-boyfriend Mo Twister?
“Una, permanent protection order kasi may temporary protection order na ako ngayon, which… hindi niya nasundan.
"May protection order ako ngayon na hindi niya sinundan so may contempt na ngayon,” the young actress disclosed.
With regard to this permanent protection order filed against Mo Twister, Rhian narrated: “Nakapagsalita na ako sa stand. Tapos na ang part ko. Yung mga witnesses naman ang [kinakausap] ngayon.”
Did she also file a libel case against her ex-boyfriend?
“I can’t really say but since napag-usapan dati yung permanent protection order, puwede ko naman sabihin na may kaso.
"I went to court for it already and nag-witness ako para dun.
"Anything else, hindi na puwedeng pag-usapan.”
MO IN NEW YORK. After attending the screening in Los Angeles, Rhian is also slated to go to New York to take part in a GMA Pinoy TV event this June.
If she happens to bump into Mo, who is now based in New York, Rhian said that she would avoid Mo rather than confront him.

ON THE CONTROVERSIAL VIDEOS. In December 2011, a video of a tearful Mo Twister became viral on the Internet.
In the said video, Mo claimed that Rhian "got rid of our baby.

This prompted Mo Twister to post on TweetDeck on December 2, 2011: "I know i sold many of my things including computers that i had erased. apparently, someone "repaired" the erased files/hard drive and uploaded some personal files of mine. i feel terrible about it."
When PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal) asked if she watched the videos that were uploaded on YouTube, Rhian said that she did.
She admitted: “Nagulat ako saka nagalit… siguro talagang moment of shock. Na parang, OA [overacting] na yung mga pinaggagawa.
"Hindi ko talaga in-expect, ’tapos nung nangyari yun, lumalapit na yung mga taong alam na nila ang plano bago pa mangyari.
"Yung mga dating friends niya na hindi na sila friends ngayon.”
Rhian also revealed that there are people who claim that Mo approached them to ask for their help in uploading the controversial videos.
“May mga nag-come forward na nagsabi na in-approach sila para i-upload ang video,” said the Kapuso actress.
Did these persons agree to upload the controversial videos?
“Hindi, umayaw sila. Ang ending, gumawa na lang na account sa YouTube.”
SEEKING PROFESSIONAL HELP. Rhian admitted that she sought professional help in order to help her deal with the trauma of dealing with these allegations.

She recalled: “Actually, yung time na yun, hindi ako nagigising.
"’Pag pinapabangon mo ako, dun lang ako sa kuwarto ko. May music lang at naka-lock lang ang pinto ko.
"Kunwari, kung kinakausap ako ng family ko, sinasabi ko, dito lang ako sa kuwarto ko.”
Rhian said that she felt much better after spending a week in Thailand, a trip which she described as a “retreat” for her.
“Ganun ang situation ko until sinabi ng Daddy ko na pumunta ako sa Thailand… he yanked me out of my frame of mind na ganun.
"Nakapag-ikot ako, kumakain ako sa labas, naging okay na. At naliligo na ako sa tamang oras,” she said, prompting reporters to laugh at her revelation.
She then clarified: “Kunwari, magigising ako sa umaga, ayoko bumangon. Matutulog uli ako.
"Magigising ako ulit afternoon na, ayoko pa ring bumangon.
"Matutulog uli ako ’tapos magigising ako gabi na, midnight na.
"Let’s say 24 hours na akong hindi naliligo.”
The actress said that a doctor also helped her cope during this difficult time.
“I went to see someone professionally—a doctor—at sinabi niya na yun ang first stage raw.
"Tulog ka nang tulog ’tapos darating ka raw sa stage na ayaw mo nang maligo.
"Pagkatapos ng stage na yun, ayaw mo nang makipag-usap sa tao.
“Hindi na ako umabot dun. Pinigilan ko na.
"Sabi niya, ’Paggising mo sa umaga, pilitin mo ang sarili mo na bumangon, maligo ka, pumunta ka sa baba at mag-breakfast ka, kumain ka.’ Sinabi yun ng doctor ko.
“Na-experience ko rin yung ring nang ring ang phone ko. Siyempre, maraming nangangamusta sa akin, pero ini-ignore ko.
"Nung na-realize ko na nagsusunud-sunod na ang mga sinabing mangyayari sa akin, dun ko na-realize na dapat nga lumabas ako sa ganung klaseng sistema.”
Does she still feel angry at her former boyfriend?
“I’m sure darating din yung day na, alam mo yun, darating din yung day na sasabihin ng judge na panalo ako, ’tapos okay na ako!" says Rhian with a laugh.
She added, "Sa ngayon, hindi. Kasi siguro dahil walang sorry saka ayaw din umamin sa kasalanan, so hindi pa.”
Did Mo make any effort to contact her and apologize personally?
“Uhm, no, no.
"Weird nga, e, kasi yung mga nababasa ko ngayon... parang wala daw siyang kinalaman. Sobrang he feels sorry daw na may lumabas ganun-ganun.
"Pero personally, wala namang tumawag.
"Puwede mo naman akong tawagan para mag-sorry, pero wala.
"So, medyo parang yung public lang yung nakakausap niya.”
