PHILIPPINES, APRIL 19, 2022 –Two new HBO Original Series We Own This City and Gentleman Jack Season 2 premiere Tuesday, April 26 on HBO GO. We Own This City also debuts on the same day as the U.S. on April 26, 9am on HBO, with the same night encore at 10pm.

Gritty and unapologetic, We Own This City is a six-episode HBO limited series that chronicles the rise and fall of Baltimore Police Department’s Gun Trace Task Force’s (GTTF) and the corruption and moral collapse that befell an American city in which the policies of drug prohibition and mass arrest were championed at the expense of actual police work. 

Jon Bernthal plays Sgt. Wayne Jenkins of the Baltimore Police Department, perhaps the central figure in the sprawling federal corruption case that centred on its Gun Trace Task Force, a plainclothes unit that went completely rogue and began hunting and robbing citizens and drug dealers alike as decades of a relentless drug war and mass incarceration in Baltimore spun wildly out of control.

We Own This City also stars main cast Wunmi Mosaku, Jamie Hector, McKinley Belcher III, Darrell Britt-Gibson, Josh Charles, DagmaraDomińczyk, Rob Brown, Don Harvey, David Corenswet, Larry Mitchell, Ian Duff, Delaney Williams, and Lucas Van Engen.

Guest stars in the series include Treat Williams, Gabrielle Carteris, Tray Chaney, DomenickLombardozzi, Thaddeus Street, Jermaine Crawford, Nathan E. Corbett, Chris Clanton, Anwan Glover, Bobby Brown, Michael Salconi, Susan Rome, Kim Tuvin, and Maria Broom.

We Own This City was created and executive produced by George Pelecanos and David Simon; directed and executive produced by Reinaldo Marcus Green; executive produced by Nina K. Noble, Ed Burns, and Kary Antholis. In addition, co-executive producer Bill Zorzi, as well as writers Pelecanos, Simon, Burns, Zorzi and D. Watkins worked on the series.

HBO Original Series Gentleman Jack Season 2 returns to the British city of Yorkshire in 1834, where all eyes are on two women’s confrontation with the era’s rigid ideas of gender roles.

Anne Lister (Suranne Jones) and Ann Walker (Sophie Rundle), the unconventional couple who has set up home together at Shibden Hall, are determined to combine their estates and become a power couple. Anne Lister’s entrepreneurial spirit frightens the locals as much as her unconventional love life and, with Halifax on the brink of revolution, her refusal to keep a low profile becomes provocative and dangerous.

The new second season will continue to reflect the real-life diaries of Anne Lister– part of which were written in code – as its source, with every part of Lister’s story based on historical fact and the five million words she wrote in her journals.

Gentleman Jack Season 2 stars Gemma Jones as Aunt Anne Lister, Timothy West as Jeremy Lister, Jodhi May (Lady Vere Cameron), Katherine Kelly (Elizabeth Sutherland), Derek Riddell (Captain George Sutherland), Stephanie Cole (Aunt Ann Walker), Peter Davison (William Priestley), Amelia Bullmore (Eliza Priestley), Vincent Franklin (Christopher Rawson), Shaun Dooley (Jeremiah Rawson), Rosie Cavaliero (Elizabeth Cordingley), Joe Armstrong (Samuel Washington), Anthony Flanagan (Ben Sowden) and George Costigan (James Holt).

Executive producers include Sally Wainwright, Suranne Jones, Faith Penhale, Will Johnston and Ben. Phil Collinson and Stella Merz are the producers, with Edward Hall, Amanda Brotchie and Fergus O’Brien as producers.

With only a few trusted allies – Alfred Pennyworth (Andy Serkis), Lt. James Gordon (Jeffrey Wright) – amongst the city’s corrupt network of officials and high-profile figures, the lone vigilante has established himself as the sole embodiment of vengeance amongst his fellow citizens.

When a killer targets Gotham’s elite with a series of sadistic machinations, a trail of cryptic clues sends the World’s Greatest Detective on an investigation into the underworld, where he encounters such characters as Selina Kyle/aka Catwoman (Zoë Kravitz), Oswald Cobblepot/aka the Penguin (Colin Farrell), Carmine Falcone (John Turturro), and Edward Nashton/aka the Riddler (Paul Dano). As the evidence begins to lead closer to home and the scale of the perpetrator’s plans becomes clear, Batman must forge new relationships, unmask the culprit, and bring justice to the abuse of power and corruption that has long plagued Gotham City.

Starring alongside Pattinson (Tenet, The Lighthouse) as Gotham’s famous and infamous cast of characters are Zoë Kravitz (Big Little Lies, Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald) as Selina Kyle; Paul Dano (Love & Mercy, 12 Years a Slave) as Edward Nashton; Jeffrey Wright (No Time to Die, Westworld) as the GCPD’s James Gordon; John Turturro (the Transformers films, The Plot Against America) as Carmine Falcone; Peter Sarsgaard (The Magnificent Seven, Interrogation) as Gotham D.A. Gil Colson; Jayme Lawson (Farewell Amor) as mayoral candidate Bella Reál; with Andy Serkis (the Planet of the Apes films, Black Panther) as Alfred; and Colin Farrell (The Gentlemen,Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them) as Oz, aka The Penguin.

Reeves (The Planet of the Apes franchise) directed from a screenplay by himself and Peter Craig, based on characters from DC. Batman was created by Bob Kane with Bill Finger. Dylan Clark (the Planet of the Apes films) and Reeves produced the film, with Michael E. Uslan, Walter Hamada, Chantal Nong Vo, and Simon Emanuel serving as executive producers.

The director’s behind-the-scenes creative team included Academy Award®-winning director of photography Greig Fraser (Dune, Lion); Reeves’ Planet of the Apes production designer, James Chinlund, and editor, William Hoy; editor Tyler Nelson (Rememory); and Oscar®-winning costume designer Jacqueline Durran (1917, Little Women, Anna Karenina).

Building even greater buzz around the theatrical release of Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledore in Philippine cinemas on April 16, Wizarding World titles will enchant fans young and old on the streaming platform and kids’ channel.

In the second Fantastic Beasts film, the powerful Dark wizard Gellert Grindelwald (Johnny Depp) is captured by MACUSA (Magical Congress of the United States of America). But, making good on his threat, Grindelwald escapes to gather followers, most unsuspecting of his true agenda: to raise pure-blood wizards up to rule over all non-magical beings. To thwart Grindelwald’s plans, Albus Dumbledore (Jude Law) enlists his former student Newt Scamander (Eddie Redmayne), who agrees to help, unaware of the dangers ahead. Lines are drawn as love and loyalty are tested, even among friends and family, in an increasingly divided wizarding world.

In 1926, Scamander has just completed a global excursion to find and document an array of magical creatures. Arriving in New York for a brief stopover, he might have come and gone without incident… were it not for a No-Maj (American for Muggle) named Jacob, a misplaced magical case, and the escape of some of Newt’s fantastic beasts, which could spell trouble for both the wizarding and No-Maj worlds. Also stars Katherine Waterston, Dan Fogler, Alison Sudol, Ezra Miller, Samantha Morton, Jon Voight, Carmen Ejogo and Colin Farrell.

PHILIPPINES, MARCH 24, 2022 – The world of fantasy and suspense unravel in HBO’s new Asia Original thriller-comedy series Twisted Strings premiering with two episodes on Sunday, March 27, 9pmon HBO, HBO GO and CATCHPLAY+. Executive produced by acclaimed filmmaker Hou Hsiao-Hsien(The Assassin), the seven-episode Taiwan satire anthology follows with a new installment every Sunday and the final two episodes air back-to-back on April 24.

Twisted Strings follows a series of bizarre deaths in the fictional Taiping City over seven separate stories across parallel time and space. While each story can be viewed independently, it intersects with others in unobvious ways. A funeral, a missing body, a dangerous game, a kidnapping; real and unreal, these incidents are woven in Wu Yuenu’s memories, converging in the mysterious Sailing Castle, where the boundary between fiction and reality is blurred. At the end of the seventh episode, all the clues will come together to reveal the whole story.

The name of the series is inspired by a popular Taiwanese nursery rhyme, which contains lyrics that tell the story of a monkey’s life over seven days. Each episode is loosely based on a line from the song.

Award-winning actress, director and screenplay writer Sylvia Chang (Love Education, 20 30 40) plays Wu Yuenu, the constant linking together the series. Chang said, “This series is full of surprises and humanity, viewers will definitely love it.”Apart from Chang, most key actors such as Lee Kang-sheng, Nikki Hsieh and Hsueh Shih-ling play more than one role across the different episodes.

Conceptualized and written over three years byGolden Horse-nominated director Huang Xi, Twisted Strings aims to see the humour of life and death. Hou who is executive producer of a series for the very first time said, “The Twisted Stringsteam includes staff I have worked with over the years in art direction, production and editing, as well as the actors. Matching them with director Huang Xi’s script and narrative technique will lead to a drama of unique style and presentation. In addition, our collaborative effort with international investors makes Twisted Strings a rarity among Taiwanese dramas.”

The anthology series also has an ensemble of award-winning cast and crew including Golden Horse-winning actor Lee Kang-sheng(Stray Dogs, Days). This is Lee’s first lead role in a series after having starred in films for the past 30 years. The additional star-studded line-up includes Nikki Hsieh(I Weirdo, Reflections), Yo Yang (Ex-boyfriend, Formula 17), Yao Yi-Ti (The Gangs, The Oscars and The Walking Dead), Duan Chun-Hao(We Are Champions), Hsueh Shih-Ling (HBO Asia Original Series Workers, Born Into Loving Hands), Michael J.Q. Huang (Father to Son, Wake up), Tracy Chou (HBO Asia Original Series The World Between Us), David Wu (We Are Champions), Buffy Chen (The Silent Forest), Rima Zeidan (Missing Johnny), JC Lin(HBO Asia Original Series The World Between Us, A Day To Choose), Bai Runyin (Dear Tenant), as well as Romeo Tan(Soul Old Yet So Young) and Aileen Tan (Hello Ms Driver)from Singapore.

Presented by HBO Asia and CATCHPLAY, Twisted Strings is produced by CATCHPLAY’s SCREENWORKS ASIA, in partnership with Taiwan’s Bossdom and Singapore’s Mediacorp.
