Just a few days before Christmas and the opening of this year’s Metro Manila Film Festival from December 25 – January 7, 2018, we recently met up with box office hit director Bb. Joyce Bernal to get her thoughts while helming “The Revenger Squad” headlined by THE Vice Ganda alongside Daniel Padilla and 2015 Ms. Universe Pia Wurtzbach.
In line with the trend of superheroes in films and inspired by The Avengers series, Direk Joyce’s film version features Wurtzbach as super heroine Kwenie, Vice (as Gandarra) and Padilla (as Rapido), who collectively form the group called The Revenger Squad out to defeat evil forces trying to harm peace.
"May sinet-up na high expectation si Vice Ganda sa comedy niya for this film", shares Direk Joyce. "May mga collaboration and suggestions paano mapaganda ang mga eksena."
Once the camera starts grinding and the comedic lines and funny scenes get rolling, Direk Joyce finds it a challenge cutting the scene because of the fun and humour it brings in the set much more so to her actors.
Now that Vice Ganda is back this year for #MMFF2017 there are already early predictions the film will once again rake in millions in its opening day and festival run similar to the box office trend that occured in his most recent films Beauty and the Bestie and The Super Parental Guardians, the latter by Direk Joyce.
The natural flow of punchlines and kind of satire Vice Ganda brings in her films, are his sure fire factors of a blockbuster outcome.
Ms. Pia will wow you with her stunts and funny scenes with Vice and Daniel.
Daniel is a natural charmer and expect a "special appearance" from a very familiar sweet someone.
