PHILIPPINES, JUNE 14, 2022 – HBO has released a new image from the forthcoming drama series The Last of Us, featuring Pedro Pascal as Joel and Bella Ramsey as Ellie.  

During yesterday’s Summer Game Fest, Neil Druckmann, Co-President of Naughty Dog and Co-Creator, Executive Producer, Writer, and Director of The Last of Us was joined onstage by Ashley Johnson and Troy Baker, who voiced Ellie and Joel in “The Last of Us” and “The Last of Us Part II” video games.

Joel, a hardened survivor, is hired to smuggle Ellie, a 14-year-old girl, out of an oppressive quarantine zone. What starts as a small job soon becomes a brutal, heartbreaking journey, as they both must traverse the U.S. and depend on each other for survival.

Neil Druckmann and Craig Mazin serve as Co-Creators, Executive Producers, Writers and Directors. Carolyn Strauss, Evan Wells, Asad Qizilbash, Carter Swan, and Rose Lam are Executive Producers. Kantemir Balagov, Jasmila Žbanić, Ali Abbasi, Peter Hoar, Jeremy Webb, and Liza Johnson are Directors.

PHILIPPINES, JUNE 13, 2022 – Wedding bells are ringing! Max Original film Father of the Bride, starring Andy Garcia, Gloria Estefan, Adria Arjona, Isabela Merced, Diego Boneta and Chloe Fineman, premieres same day as the U.S. on Thursday, June 16 only on HBO GO.

Father of the Bride invites viewers to the love, food, music and fun of this modern rom-com reimagined from the timeless classic. The sparkling story of a family and its unbreakable bonds illustrates the surprising and funny ways the heart can adapt in the name of love.

Long-marrieds Billy (Andy Garcia) and Ingrid (Gloria Estefan) are surprised when their eldest daughter Sofia (Adria Arjona) comes home to Miami for a visit. But the surprises just keep coming when she announces a new boyfriend, Adan (Diego Boneta) – who is now her fiancé – and their plans for a quick-turnaround wedding and new life together.

Sofia’s quickfire revelations keep Billy and Ingrid from making their own disclosure – that they’re calling quits on their marriage – but both agree to delay the news and play the loving couple for the benefit of the family.

Old-fashioned Billy is at first opposed to the wedding, but he is eventually swayed – as long as his opinions as father of the bride carry the most weight in all things matrimonial. A prominent architect and family man, Billy feels his hard-fought success and dedication to his heritage earn him the right to call the shots. After all his achievements, why is he suddenly seen as the bad guy?

The same could also be said for Adan’s equally headstrong father, Hernan (Pedro Damián), who soon arrives with his own traditions and family pride in tow. With both iron-willed fathers vying to take charge of the festivities, it becomes a prideful game of one-upmanship, as cultures clash, generations take sides and competing traditions collide. Family relationships are tested, along with the couple at the centre of it all, as the roller coaster ride of wedding planning races toward the altar.

Warner Bros. Pictures and HBO Max Present A Plan B Entertainment Production, Father of the Bride, directed by Gaz Alazraki (Nosotros Los Nobles, Club de Cuervos) and produced by Plan B Entertainment’s Oscar winners Dede Gardner and Jeremy Kleiner (Minari, Moonlight, 12 Years a Slave, Eat Pray Love) and Paul Michael Perez (No manches Frida, Spare Parts). The screenplay is by Matt Lopez (Promised Land, The Sorcerer’s Apprentice), based on the novel by Edward Streeter. The executive producers are Brad Pitt, Andy Garcia, Ted Gidlow and Jesse Ehrman.

Alazraki’s behind-the-camera team includes director of photography Igor Jadue-Lillo (Everything, Everything, The Kids Are All Right), production designer Kim Jennings (Joker, Ocean’s Eight), editor Jon Poll (Bombshell, The Greatest Showman), composer Terence Blanchard (One Night in Miami…, BlacKkKlansman) and costume designer Caroline Eselin-Schaefer (If Beale Street Could Talk, Moonlight).

Stream or download Father of the Bride from June 16 only on HBO GO. Also watch other Max Original films like The Fallout, KIMI and Moonshoot on HBO GO.

Sequel films welcome back Hollywood A-listers Alec Baldwin, James Marsden, Emily Blunt, Cillian Murphy, and Djimon Honsou

PHILIPPINES, MAY 13, 2022 – Go on a new adventure with brothers Tim and TedTempleton in The Boss Baby: Family Business and hold your breath in tightly wound suspense as the Abbotts battle the odds to survive in A Quiet Place Part II. Premiering on consecutive Saturdays, stream The Boss Baby: Family Business on May 21 and A Quiet Place Part II on May 28 on HBO GO.

In The Boss Baby: Family Business, the sequel to DreamWorks Animation’s Oscar®-nominated blockbuster comedy, the Templeton brothers – Tim (James Marsden, HBO’s Westworld) and his Boss Baby little brother Ted (Alec Baldwin, Saturday Night Live) – have become adults and drifted away from each other. Tim is now a married stay-at-home dad, while Ted is a hedge fund CEO. But a new boss baby with a cutting-edge approach and a can-do attitude is about to bring them together again… and inspire a new family business.

Tim and his wife, Carol (Eva Longoria, Dora and the Lost City of Gold), the breadwinner of the family, live in the suburbs with their super-smart 7-year-old daughter Tabitha (Ariana Greenblatt, Avengers: Infinity War), and adorable new infant Tina (Amy Sedaris, BoJack Horseman). Tabitha, who’s at the top her class at the prestigious Acorn Center for Advanced Childhood, idolizes her Uncle Ted and wants to become like him, but Tim, still in touch with his overactive youthful imagination, worries that she is working too hard and missing out on a normal childhood.

When baby Tina reveals that she is a top secret agent for Baby Corp. on a mission to uncover the dark secrets behind Tabitha’s school and its mysterious founder, Dr Erwin Armstrong (Jeff Goldblum, Jurassic World franchise), it will reunite the Templeton brothers in unexpected ways, lead them to re-evaluate the meaning of family and discover what truly matters.

Lisa Kudrow (Friends) and Jimmy Kimmel (Jimmy Kimmel Live!) reprise their roles as Ted and Tim’s parents, as does James McGrath as Tim’s befuddled alarm clock, Wizzie.

The Boss Baby: Family Business is directed by returning filmmaker Tom McGrath (Madagascar series, Megamind) and is produced by Jeff Hermann, p.g.a. (Kung Fu Panda 3). Based on the books by Marla Frazee, the film’s screenplay is by Michael McCullers (Austin Powers series, Baby Mama, The Boss Baby), from a story by McGrath and McCullers. The music is by Academy Award® winner Hans Zimmer (The Lion King, The Boss Baby) and Steve Mazarro (The Boss Baby, The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge on the Run).

A Quiet Place Part II continues the gripping family tale in this second chapter, heading to new places as events hurtle past the fragile sanctuary of the sand path the Abbotts (Emily Blunt, Millicent Simmonds, Noah Jupe) left, created to prevail in a reality where even a single footstep could be deadly – and into a world of infinite peril beyond. Following the deadly events at home, the Abbott family must now face the terrors of the outside world as they continue their fight for survival in silence. Forced to venture into the unknown, they quickly realize that the creatures that hunt by sound are not the only threats that lurk beyond the sand path.

From the opening moments of the film, the family is on the run, beyond any semblance of security and searching for refuge in a town gone mad with fear. In a time when empathy and connection have nearly vanished from the world, the Abbotts strive not only to protect each other from the threat of sound but to find hope in the terrifying hush around them. 

In 2018, John Krasinski’s A Quiet Place turned silence into the building blocks of fright and forged from the horror-thriller genre a modern fable of family love, communication and survival. With its mix of relentless tension and layered storytelling about a tight-knit clan fending off an immensely destructive, sound-attuned alien force, the film became a startling hit and cultural phenomenon.  

Paramount Pictures presents in association with Michael Bay, a Platinum Dunes Production / Sunday Night Production of A Quiet Place Part II, directed, written and produced by John Krasinski and starring Golden Globe® and Screen Actors Guild® Award-winner Emily Blunt (Mary Poppins Returns, Edge of Tomorrow), Cillian Murphy (Dunkirk, The Dark Knight, The Dark Knight Rises), Millicent Simmonds(Wonderstruck, A Quiet Place), Noah Jupe (HBO’s The Undoing, Honey Boy), Oscar® nominee Djimon Hounsou (Blood Diamond, In America), and John Krasinski (The Hollars, The Office). The producers are Michael Bay, Andrew Form, Brad Fuller and John Krasinski. The executive producers are Allyson Seeger, JoAnn Perritano, and Aaron Janus.

Adapted From The Bestselling Novel Of The Same Title, Stars Rose Leslie And Theo James

PHILIPPINES, MAY 6, 2022– An extraordinary tale of a moving and spellbinding love unfolds in the new HBO Original series The Time Traveler’s Wife. The six-episode science-fiction and romantic drama premieres same time as the U.S. on Monday, May 16 at 9am on HBO and HBO GO, with a same-day 10pm encore on HBO. A new episode will follow every Monday.

The Time Traveler’s Wife is an intricate and magical love story, adapted by Steven Moffat (Doctor Who, Sherlock) from the much-loved novel by Audrey Niffenegger and directed by David Nutter. The genre-bending drama series expertly weaves themes of love, loss, marriage, and survival – in a story that defies the laws and logic of time.

Rose Leslie (HBO’s Game of Thrones) is Clare Abshire, fiery, clever, unstoppable – and for most of her life she has had an amazing secret. At six years old, Clare meets Henry, the future love of her life – and who, as a time traveler, is actually visiting from the future. Fourteen years later, when Rose wanders into the library where Henry, played by Theo James (Divergent) works, claiming not only to have known him all her life but also to be his future wife, a magical romance ensues that is as sprawling and complicated as Henry’s attempts to explain his “condition.”

The genre-bending drama series expertly weaves themes of love, loss, marriage, and survival – in a story that defies the laws and logic of time.

In addition to Rose Leslie and Theo James, The Time Traveler’s Wife also stars Caitlin Shorey and Everleigh McDonell as younger versions of Clare Abshire; Brian Altemus and Jason David as younger versions of Henry DeTamble; as well as Desmin Borges as Gomez, and Natasha Lopez as Charisse.

An HBO and Warner Bros. Television production based on the book by Audrey Niffenegger, The Time Traveler’s Wife is executive produced by writer Steven Moffat, director David Nutter (HBO’s Game of Thrones, The Sopranos); Sue Vertue (Sherlock, Coupling) and Brian Minchin (Doctor Who, Torchwood) through Hartswood Films; and Joseph E. Iberti (HBO’s Watchmen, Boardwalk Empire).
