1. Ang Babae Sa Septic Tank
‘Ang Babae sa Septic Tank 3’ will make you LOL so hard! After the notable back-to-back hits, the third part comes as an iWant original mini-series—following Eugene Domingo as she directs, produces, and also stars in the biopic of Josephine Bracken!
2. Jhon en Martian
Arci Muñoz plays an alien in ‘Jhon en Martian’—and as if that wasn’t enough of a reason to watch this, it pays to know that 2016 CineFilipino’s Best Actor, Pepe Herrera, also stars here as Jhon. If you’re looking for the ‘no-holds-barred’ kind of humor, sprinkled with nostalgia, then this one’s for you!
3. Call Me Tita
Catch Cherry Pie Picache, Agot Isidro, Joanna Ampil, Mylene Dizon, and Angelica Panganiban as they serve you some major tea-ta vibes in ‘Call Me Tita’! From facing mid-life crisis to figuring out one’s purpose, watch as their characters unearth new facets of their friendship that women, the young and not so young, will most definitely find relatable.
4. Everybody Loves Baby Wendy
As the last film ever helmed by the notable Wenn Deramas, he blesses us with a charming, ‘Wenn-derful’ comedy flick starring no less than Alex Gonzaga herself. Here, she plays the role of a former child star trying to reclaim her lost fame and glory after her tantrum was unfortunately exposed to the public.
5. Taiwan That You Love
This romantic comedy-fantasy mini-series tells the story of Ivi (Barbie Imperial) who follows her longtime boyfriend, Eric (Paulo Angeles) to Taiwan, only to cross paths with Wei Ting (Stephen Rong). By chance, Ivi then encounters Yue Lao, the Chinese matchmaking God who leads her to her destiny. Will she end up with Wei-Ting or Eric? Watch this to find out!
6. Past, Present, Perfect?
This romantic drama follows the story of both the past (Loisa Andalio) and the present (Shaina Magdayao) versions of Shantal, a student who secretly writes poems and love letters to her crush, her high school professor, Daniel (Vin Abrenica). From puppy love thrills to post-college pursuits, the film pulls you in by giving you a look into the mind of one character, set in two timelines, who, just like us, is trying her best to win in love and life.
