Kumulog at kumidlat sa takilya ang bagong bukas na Thor: Love and Thunder.

As expected, nanguna sa North America last weekend (Hulyo 8-10) ang pwetmalung pelikula ni Chris Hemsworth, kung saan namukadkad ang marvelous and thunderous love story nina Thor at Mighty Thor.

$144.2M ang opening weekend gross ng Thor: Love and Thunder sa U.S. at Canada. Umabot agad sa $303M ang worldwide gross nito, at pumuwesto na ito bilang pansampu sa pinakasakalam na movie this year.

Ang Top 5 sa worldwide gross this 2022, so far, ay Top Gun: Maverick ($1.2B), Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness ($953M), Jurassic World Dominion ($876M), The Batman ($771M) at Water Gate Bridge ($627M).

Ang pang-anim hanggang pansiyam ay Minions: The Rise of Gru ($405.8M), Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledore ($405.2M), Sonic the Hedgehog 2 ($401.9M), at Uncharted ($401.7M).

Siyempre, mababago pa ang ranking na iyan next week. Inaasahan nating papasok eventually sa Top 5 ang Thor: Love and Thunder.

Nasa Facebook page ng Cinemalaya ang teasers at synopses ng indie films na ito.

In-introduce ng multi-awarded writer-director na si Jose Javier Reyes ang mga direktor ng mga pelikulang ito sa Cinemalaya 2022 presscon noong Hulyo 6, Miyerkules, sa CCP Main Lobby.

Dapat sana’y dalawampu (20) ang mga ito, hanggang sa naging labintatlo (13), pero nalagasan pa ng dalawa.

Ani Direk Joey, “Ang mga pinagdaanan ng mga filmmakers na ito ay hindi katawa-tawa at talagang kataka-taka. They made their films during the height of the pandemic.

“They are survivors because… oh, no, no, no no! That’s not correct. They’re more than survivors.

“These are the passionate filmmakers who had to work so hard to get their voices and their visions brought right back to the main theater of the CCP.

“And regardless of who among them should win, they should be honored for being the true passionate Filipino filmmakers.”

Kung hindi ako nagkamali, Agosto 3 na ang playdate ng Maid In Malacañang. Tingnan natin kung makakatulong ang ingay ng ilan sa main cast ng pelikulang ito.

Hanggang ngayon ay mainit pa rin ang karamihang netizens kay Ella Cruz.

Read: Ella Cruz, nakiusap sa bashers na huwag idamay ang kanyang pamilya sa isyung kinasasangkutan

Swak na swak naman ang isyu ni Ruffa Gutierrez sa dalawa niyang kasambahay.

Si Tita Annabelle Rama na ang humaharap ngayon at nakipagbardagulan kay Representative Rowena Guanzon. Tingnan natin kung gaano kainit itong patutsadahan nila sa social media.

Read: Annabelle Rama sinagot si Rowena Guanzon? "Huwag ka maging chismosang marites!"

Huwag na tayong magulat kung biglang dumating si Cong. Guanzon sa premiere night ng Maid in Malacañang.

NOEL FERRER

Even if Thor: Love and Thunder makes it big sa box office, hindi pa rin nito mao-offset ang ilang buwan o taon ng pagkakatigil ng palabas sa pelikula.

Sayang nga lang na yung Ngayon Kaya ay nasa micro cinema na lang. Hindi rin nito na-sustain ang movie audience para mapanatili sa mga mainstream na sinehan.

About Maid In Malacañang, it’ll be a stroke of luck kung susuportahan ito ng 31M strong BBM Supporters. Oh welll, who knows?

But I’m sure, the C-D-E BBM Supporters will focus on having food to eat and transpo subsidy than watch this movie.

Ano na ang halaga nito sa ordinaryong tao ngayon? Sana, meron pang mas mabigat na rason laban sa survival ng ating mga naghihikahos na mga kababayan.

Oh well…
