Some Mistakes Cannot be Erased: Extracurricular premieres on April 29, only on Netflix

9:47:00 PM



Netflix debuted the main trailer of Extracurricular, that provides a stunning glimpse into the show in which four high school students risk their lives for dangerous choices.

Watch the trailer here

The trailer shows in vivid detail how the students make choices that send them down the wrong path and are ultimately forced to pay the price for crimes they committed without an ounce of guilt.



Jisoo (Kim Dong-hee) is a quiet model student who carries a secret inside that no one is aware of. He dreams of living a simple life, but to attain this dream, he leads a shocking double life and becomes involved in organized crime.


Gyuri (Park Ju-hyun) is the ‘it-girl’ at school with everything, money and brains included. But while it seems she has the perfect life, she feels suffocated by the overbearing expectations of her successful parents at home. To escape from her parents’ pressure, Gyuri becomes an accomplice to Jisoo and assists him with his operations without any consideration of whether he consents or not. At this point, the story takes a turn for the worse as Jisoo and Gyuri’s business activities spiral out of control, and they are led down a road they cannot go back.



To make matters worse, the school’s number one bad girl Minhee (Jung Da-bin) and her boyfriend Kitae (Nam Yoon Su), the undefeated school bully, become entangled in Jisoo and Gyuri’s mess, and all of their lives are thrown headlong into a whirlpool from which none of them can escape.

Epic Adventure "Dune" Reveals First-Look Images of Stellar Cast

3:15:00 AM


The big reveal of Denis Villenueve’s “Dune” adaptation has arrived.  Take your first look below at the brand new images of the cast led by Timothee Chalamet, Zendaya, Rebecca Ferguson, Josh Brolin and Oscar Isaac.

In debuting the images, director Denis Villenueve says, “`Dune’ was made by people from all over the world. Many of these people are like family to me – and they’re very much in my thoughts. I’m so proud to showcase their hard work. I look forward to a time when we can all get together again as `Dune’ was made to be seen on the big screen.  Be safe.”








About “Dune”

Oscar nominee Denis Villeneuve (“Arrival,” “Blade Runner 2049”) directs Warner Bros. Pictures and Legendary Pictures’ “Dune,” the big-screen adaptation of Frank Herbert’s seminal bestseller of the same name.

A mythic and emotionally charged hero’s journey, “Dune” tells the story of Paul Atreides, a brilliant and gifted young man born into a great destiny beyond his understanding, who must travel to the most dangerous planet in the universe to ensure the future of his family and his people. As malevolent forces explode into conflict over the planet’s exclusive supply of the most precious resource in existence—a commodity capable of unlocking humanity’s greatest potential—only those who can conquer their fear will survive.

The film stars Oscar nominee Timothée Chalamet (“Call Me by Your Name,” “Little Women”), Rebecca Ferguson (“Stephen King’s Doctor Sleep,” “Mission: Impossible – Fallout”), Oscar Isaac (the “Star Wars” franchise) Oscar nominee Josh Brolin (“Avengers: Infinity War”), Stellan Skarsgård (“Avengers: Age of Ultron”), Dave Bautista (the “Guardians of the Galaxy” films, “Avengers: Endgame”), Stephen McKinley Henderson (“Lady Bird”), Zendaya (“Spider-Man: Homecoming”), David Dastmalchian (“The Dark Knight”), Chang Chen (“Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon”), Sharon Duncan-Brewster (“Rogue One: A Star Wars Story”), with Oscar nominee Charlotte Rampling (“Assassin’s Creed”), with Jason Momoa (“Aquaman,” HBO’s “Game of Thrones”), and Oscar winner Javier Bardem (“No Country for Old Men,” “Skyfall”). 

Villeneuve directed “Dune” from a screenplay he co-wrote with Jon Spaihts and Eric Roth based on the novel of the same name written by Frank Herbert.  Villeneuve also produced the film with Mary Parent, Cale Boyter and Joe Caracciolo, Jr.  The executive producers are Tanya Lapointe, Joshua Grode, Herbert W. Gains, Jon Spaihts, Thomas Tull, Brian Herbert, Byron Merritt and Kim Herbert.

Behind the scenes, Villeneuve reteamed with two-time Oscar-nominated production designer Patrice Vermette (“Arrival,” “Sicario”), two-time Oscar-nominated editor Joe Walker (“Blade Runner 2049,” “Arrival”), two-time Oscar-winning visual effects supervisor Paul Lambert (“First Man,” “Blade Runner 2049”), and Oscar-winning special effects supervisor Gerd Nefzer (“Blade Runner 2049”).  He also collaborated for the first time with Oscar-nominated director of photography Greig Fraser (“Zero Dark Thirty,” “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story”); three-time Oscar-nominated costume designer Jacqueline West (“The Revenant”) and co-costume designer Bob Morgan; and stunt coordinator Tom Struthers (“The Dark Knight” trilogy, “Inception”).  Oscar-winning and multiple Oscar-nominated composer Hans Zimmer (“Blade Runner 2049,” “Inception,” “Gladiator,” “The Lion King”) is creating the score. 

“Dune” was filmed on location in Hungary and Jordan.  The film is slated for a December 18, 2020, worldwide release from Warner Bros. Pictures and Legendary.

"No Time to Die" Official Theme Song by Billie Eilish Out Now

7:45:00 AM


The official theme song to the 25th James Bond film No Time To Die has been released. The song is written and performed by Billie Eilish, produced by her brother FINNEAS alongside Stephen Lipson, with orchestral arrangements by Hans Zimmer and Matt Dunkley and guitar from Johnny Marr.

Watch the preview of the song here.
Listen to the song’s full audio here.

“Billie and FINNEAS have written an incredibly powerful and moving song for No Time To Die, which has been impeccably crafted to work within the emotional story of the film,” said Michael G. Wilson and Barbara Broccoli, the producers of No Time To Die.

“There are a chosen few who record a Bond theme. I am a huge fan of Billie and FINNEAS. Their creative integrity and talent are second to none and I cannot wait for audiences to hear what they’ve brought – a fresh new perspective whose vocals will echo for generations to come,” said director Cary Joji Fukunaga.

Eilish said, “It feels crazy to be a part of this in every way. To be able to score the theme song to a film that is part of such a legendary series is a huge honour. James Bond is the coolest film franchise ever to exist. I’m still in shock”.

FINNEAS adds. “Writing the theme song for a Bond film is something we’ve been dreaming about doing our entire lives. There is no more iconic pairing of music and cinema than the likes of Goldfinger and Live And Let Die. We feel so so lucky to play a small role in such a legendary franchise, long live 007.”

Meanwhile, IMAX has revealed its all-new exclusive artwork for No Time To Die, the first ever to be shot with IMAX® film cameras. Director Cary Joji Fukunaga captured select sequences of No Time To Die using IMAX’s extremely high-resolution 15/70mm film cameras to deliver IMAX audiences greater scope and breathtaking image quality.  Check it out below.

In Philippine cinemas April 22, No Time To Die is distributed by United International Pictures through Columbia Pictures. 

About No Time To Die

No Time to Die, the 25th James Bond adventure, from Albert R. Broccoli’s EON Productions, Metro Goldwyn Mayer Studios (MGM), and Universal Pictures International, is directed by Cary Joji Fukunaga (Beasts of No Nation, True Detective) and stars Daniel Craig, who returns for his fifth film as Ian Fleming’s James Bond 007. 

Produced by Michael G. Wilson and Barbara Broccoli, No Time to Die is written by Neal Purvis & Robert Wade (Spectre, Skyfall), Cary Joji Fukunaga, Scott Z. Burns (Contagion, The Bourne Ultimatum) and Phoebe Waller-Bridge (Killing Eve, Fleabag).

No Time To Die also stars Rami Malek, Léa Seydoux, Lashana Lynch, Ben Whishaw, Naomie Harris, Billy Magnussen, Ana de Armas, Rory Kinnear, David Dencik, Dali Benssalah with Jeffrey Wright and Ralph Fiennes.

In No Time To Die, Bond has left active service and is enjoying a tranquil life in Jamaica.  His peace is short-lived when his old friend Felix Leiter from the CIA turns up asking for help. The mission to rescue a kidnapped scientist turns out to be far more treacherous than expected, leading Bond onto the trail of a mysterious villain armed with dangerous new technology.

Casino Royale, Quantum Of Solace, Skyfall and Spectre have grossed more than $3.1 billion in worldwide box office collectively. Skyfall ($1.1 billion) and Spectre ($880 million) are the two highest-grossing films in the franchise.
