Channing Tatum stars in WHITE HOUSE DOWN


One of today's hottest leading men, Channing Tatum (“G.I Joe: Rise of the Cobra,” “The Vow”) plays John Cale, an ex-soldier and divorced father who’s trying to put his life back on solid footing, in director Roland Emmerich's new action-thriller “White House Down.”

Ex-military, now a Capitol policeman, Cale is a father struggling to bond with his estranged daughter. And as “White House Down” begins, it looks like Cale still hasn’t quite figured it out. “But his heart is good – he’s always wanted to be his daughter’s hero,” says Tatum. “And now that he’s realizing that he can’t be that, due to mistakes he’s made, he thinks, ‘Well, she idolizes the president – if I can’t be her hero, maybe I can help protect the guy who is.’”

Giant Monsters Versus Giant Robots in PACIFIC RIM


The depths of the ocean have always held a fascination for people, but we have always assumed that its wonders—and its dangers—are of our own world. We were wrong.

That intriguing premise gave rise to Warner Bros. Pictures & Legendary Pictures' new action adventure “Pacific Rim.” As the film begins, a breach in the floor of the Pacific Ocean unleashes a cataclysmic threat to the human race.

Get Ready for THE LEGO MOVIE!


Warner Bros. and Village Roadshow Pictures have just assembled the teaser poster and trailer for their upcoming original, 3D adventure comedy “The LEGO Movie.”

He is drafted into a fellowship of strangers on an epic quest to stop an evil tyrant, a journey for which Emmet is hopelessly and hilariously underprepared.

The film will incorporate some of the most popular LEGO figures while introducing several new characters, inviting fans who have enjoyed the brand’s innovative toys and hugely popular video games for generations to experience their visually unique LEGO world as never seen before.

The Mind-blowing taste of INUTAK


About 2 to 3 years ago, my office mates and I tried to bring and share delicacies from our respective hometowns.  I remember our staff Ivan who is from Nueva Ecija, brought pastillas because they're town is just beside San Miguel, Bulacan which is known for these products.  I on the other hand shared the famous Malolos' inipit!  Well we do this, not just because we are foodies, but we enjoy sharing food together and take pride of what our place has to offer.  

And my colleague Len didn't take this sitting down!  Hehe.  And what she brought is... inutak!  At first, I thought it's an ulam (viand) and is really made out of brain but to my surprise, it's a kakanin type of food or dessert!  She's from Paranaque but the delicacy is from Taguig but Len said they're really used to eating inutak.  And it's probably called as such because it looks like an utak (brain)!  :)  And she let us taste it with ice cream, and it's really mouth watering!  You can see in the print screen below how we asked Len to bring some more.  Hehe
