We have seen the combined forces of “Agimat” and “Enteng Kabisote” in the 2010 Metro Manila Film Festival (MMFF) transform box-office history to the heights of glory.
Two years after, in MMFF 2012, prepare as the two formidable giants of the local filmmaking world – Vic Sotto and Ramon “Bong” Revilla, Jr. – once again join their stellar powers and listed the services of an equally bankable actress – Judy Ann Santos – to come up with the next adventure-filled chapter of their heroic exploits in “Si Agimat, Si Enteng Kabisote at Si Ako.”
Produced by industry powerhouse outfits Imus Productions, OctoArts Films, M-Zet TV, APT Entertainment and GMA Films, the movie is poised not just to lord it over the tills, but to bring cheers, goodwill and love as it once again espouses family values, adventure, fun and magical fantasy when it unreels on Christmas.
Director Tony Y. Reyes, who was at the helm of all the “Enteng Kabisote” series in the recent MMFF past, says that the challenge to outdo the last one is always the hardest one to tackle. “In 2010, Sen. Bong and Bossing Vic already teamed up and it broke all box-office records when they did. This time around, how do we top that? That’s when the name of Ms. Judy Ann Santos came in. We now have not just one, not two, but three box-office giants in one movie,” he said.
The movie boasts of locations in the most spectacular places in the Northern part of the Philippines and elsewhere, dedicated sound stages during the entire filming and CGI effects done abroad.
Not to be missed is the support cast led by Wally Bayola, Jose Manalo, Sam Pinto, Gwen Zamora, Aiza Seguerra, John Lapus, child stars Jillian Ward and Ryzza Mae Dizon, Yassi Pressman, Jolo Revilla, Oyo Boy Sotto, Ruby Rodriguez, Amy Perez, Barbie Forteza, Alden Richards, and Anton Revilla.
Screenplay by Bibeth Orteza and Jermyn Aven Jacob, the story of “Si Agimat, Si Enteng Kabisote, at Si Ako” begins with the establishment of the three different worlds, bound to meet for an adventure like no other – the humble family-oriented Enteng Kabisote (Vic Sotto), a low-profile technician married to the beautiful Fairy Princess of Encantasia, Faye (Gwen Zamora); Agimat (Ramon “Bong” Revilla, Jr.), the brave village warrior hero of Amuleto; and the high tech-yuppie Kingdom of Diwatara ruled by Princess Angelina Kalinisan Orteza (Judy Ann Santos) also known as AKO, where she leads an environmental advocacy organization.
