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).

Stream or download The Time Traveler’s Wife from May 16 on HBO GO.

The eight-episode thriller will debut a new episode every following Monday.

Irma Vep will make its world premiere as an Official Selection at the Festival De Cannes 2022. View the first look images here.

Based on the 1996 movie of the same name, Irma Vep stars Alicia Vikander as Mira, an American movie star disillusioned by her career and a recent breakup, who comes to France to star as “Irma Vep” in a remake of the French silent film classic, “Les Vampires.” Set against the backdrop of a lurid crime thriller, Mira struggles as the distinctions between herself and the character she plays begin to blur and merge.

Irma Vep is directed by award-winning French filmmaker Olivier Assayas, who has become a major voice in international contemporary cinema. He started his career as a painter and graphic designer. Later, he began making his own short films while pursuing his interest in globalizing culture and technology as an editor of Cahiers du Cinema (1980-1985). Since his first feature film, Désordre(1986), which was awarded the Critic’s Week Prize at the Venice Biennale, he has consistently delivered a rich and diverse body of work that has brought him international recognition. Among his most celebrated films are: Irma Vep (1996); Summer Hours(2008), named one of the “Best Films of the 21st Century So Far” by The New York Times; Demonlover (2002); Clean(2004); Carlos(2010), which won a Golden Globe® for Best Mini-Series or Motion Picture Made for Television and garnered two Emmy® nominations including Outstanding Direction for a Mini-Series, Movie or Dramatic Special; Clouds of Sils Maria(2014), for which Kristen Stewart won the Cesar for Best Supporting Actress; Personal Shopper(2016), which won the Directing Prize at Cannes; Something in the Air(2012), which won Best Screenplay at Venice; and most recently Non-Fiction(2018) and Wasp Network(2019).

PHILIPPINES, APRIL 21, 2022 –Life’s unexpected twists and turns strike two women in utterly different ways in the HBO Original horror-comedy limited series The Baby premiering Monday, April 25, 11.30pm on HBO and HBO GO, as well as the Max Original series Made for Love Season 2 debuting with two new episodes on Thursday, April 28 only on HBO GO. New episodes of The Baby air each Monday up to June 13, while two new installments of Made for Love Season 2 debut every Thursday, with the two final episodes airing on May 19.

Motherhood does not come naturally to some women, as Natasha (Michelle De Swarte) discovers in The Baby, a darkly funny, raw examination of motherhood, from the perspective of a woman who doesn’t want to be one. Aged 38, she is furious that her closest friends are all having babies. But when she is unexpectedly landed with a baby of her own, her life dramatically implodes.

Controlling, manipulative, but incredibly cute, the baby twists Natasha’s life into a surreal horror show. As she discovers the true extent of the baby’s deadly nature, Natasha makes increasingly desperate attempts to get rid of it. She doesn’t want a baby. But the baby definitely wants her.

The series also stars Amira Ghazalla (The Rhythm Section) as Mrs. Eaves, the 70-year-old enigma who has spent the last fifty years living out of her car and seems to be everywhere the Baby is, and Amber Grappy as Bobbi, Natasha’s younger sister, a children’s magician who would love nothing more than to be a parent, to give love and to receive it.

Additional cast includes Patrice Naiambana (Spectre) as Natasha’s father Lyle, Sinéad Cusack (Marcella) as her mother Barbara. Shvorne Marks (Endeavour) as Mags, Isy Suttie (Peep Show) as Rita, Tanya Reynolds (Sex Education) as Helen, Seyan Sarvan (HBO Max’s It’s a Sin) as Nour, Karl Davies (The Tower) as Jack, and Divian Ladwa (Ant-Man and the Wasp) as Fooze.

The Baby is co-created by Siân Robins-Grace and Lucy Gaymer; executive produced by Jane Featherstone, Carolyn Strauss and Naomi de Pear for SISTER, Siân Robins-Grace and Nicole Kassell; co-executive produced by Katie Carpenter; produced by Lucy Gaymer. The series is directed by Nicole Kassell, Stacey Gregg, Faraz Shariat and Ella Jones, and written by Siân Robins-Grace, Susan Soon He Stanton, Kara Smith, Anchuli Felicia King and Sophie Goodhart.

Based on the novel by Alissa Nutting, Made for Love is a poignantly humorous story of modern love and divorce. The first season –also available to stream on HBO GO – followed Hazel Green (Cristin Milioti), a thirty-something woman on the run after ten years in a suffocating marriage to tech billionaire Byron Gogol (Billy Magnussen), as smart as he is insufferable. After discovering that her husband implanted a monitoring device – the Made for Love chip – in her brain, allowing him to track her, watch her and know her “emotional data,” Hazel fled to her desert hometown to take refuge with her outcast father Herbert (Ray Romano) and his synthetic partner, Diane.

In Made for Love Season 2, in order to save her father’s life, Hazel returns to the Hub, Byron’s high-tech palace. But once inside, she becomes ensnared by Gogol’s newest revolutionary (and dangerous) technology.

The series stars Cristin Milioti as Hazel Green, Billy Magnussenas Byron Gogol, Ray Romano as Herbert Green, Dan Bakkendahl as Herringbone, Noma Dumezweni as Fiffany, Caleb Foote as Bennett, and Sarunas J. Jackson as Jay.

Made for Love is executive produced by Christina Lee, Alissa Nutting, Patrick Somerville, Dean Bakopoulos, Liza Chasin, Daisy Mayer and SJ Clarkson. Christina Lee, season one showrunner, is joined by Alissa Nutting to show run season two.
