‘The Witcher’ slays Manila

Inquirer Breaking News - Sun, 12/15/2019 - 04:20
We have a new name for Henry Cavill: The Man Who Won't Stop Signing. On the evening of Dec. 12, the actor, who previously starred in "Mission: Impossible---Fallout" and "Man of Steel" tirelessly and patiently autographed poster after poster, Funko Pop after Funko Pop, book, comic books, postcards, even a bust of himself as Superman. He posed for endless selfies, too, with the huge crowd that had gathered at the Activity Center of the Ayala Malls Manila Bay for the fan event and early screening of the upcoming Netflix fantasy series "The Witcher."

Actor Ed Norton steps behind the camera and back into the director's chair for the first time since 2000's "Keeping the Faith" to helm this passion project he's been developing for years, an adaptation of the Jonathan Lethem novel, whose script Norton wrote himself.

The impact of Transformers Impactor

Inquirer Breaking News - Sun, 12/15/2019 - 04:10
How long does it take for a comic book character to get a toy? How about 33 years? In 1986, Hasbro's Transformers toys were truly sunstorm-hot, and aside from the "Transformers" series Marvel Comics was publishing in the US, Marvel UK was publishing its own line of "Transformers" comic books with its own continuity. It was a grimmer, edgier story and out of that emerged the violent, powerful Impactor. The leader of the Autobot strike team the Wreckers (later to become a prominent part of Transformers comics lore), the harpoon-handed Impactor (created by Simon Furman and Jeff Anderson) boasted the Marvel UK "Transformers" title's more angular design and was an original creation. Though he...

In 1994, The Bistro Group opened the first TGIFridays in the Philippines, bringing with it our favorite chicken fingers and mozzarella sticks and the mind-blowing concept of unlimited iced tea and soda.
