UNO Magazine releases The Mocha Girls Special

If you think that the Mocha Girls are just a simple girl group that gets TV time by looking pretty and sexy on variety shows, think again.
There is more to the Mocha Girls than just skin-deep attraction.

Landing on the cover of UNO, the ultimate guide for men in the Philippines, proves there is more to them than just scintillating looks and come-hither moves.

This all-girl pop group has seen its share of beautiful faces come and go. One thing that has remained constant is the founder and the person who lent her name to the group, ringleader Mocha Uson. She is fiery, spirited, and a true leader.

Mocha says what keeps the group going is the drive to reinvent itself. The current members were not there when Mocha Girls started seven years ago. But Mae, Franz, Seika, Georgina, Jhane together with Mocha have found a way to use each other's strengths and complement them to form a cohesive, well-oiled pop group that thrives on reinvention.

Mae uses her sweet personality to create the group's choreography; Franz comes across as the anti-thesis to pop with her naughty hip-hop moves; Jhane is both rocker-chic and alluring belly dancer; Seika provides the J-Pop flavor; Georgina brings the fashionista model to the stage and bringing it all together is Mocha, post-modern feminist and superwoman in one sexy, smart package.

Because of the versatile talent the girls bring to the group, Mocha Girls has earned its share of awards for their pop hits. With every new song they have released they continue to prove they are not a one-hit girl-group wonder. No wonder then that they bagged Best Dance Album in the 2009 PMPC Star Awards for Music for Deliciosa and Best Dance Album in the 2012 PMPC Star Awards for Music for 18+ Restricted.
In this issue of UNO magazine, readers and Mocha Girls fans will be treated to a veritable visual feast of the girls in different titillating poses. With lots of skin bared too. It's like Christmas all over again. From racy poses to barely there clothing, the girls show that they can manage to capture a guy's attention while sharing something sensible about themselves in the process.

The sharing by each member is what makes this UNO issue even more special. The informative featurettes on each member of the group provide a rare glimpse into how the girls think, how they feel about things and situations around them...think of it as a one-on-one date with a girl you like.

The girls even let readers in on their recent escapades abroad with an exclusive behind the scenes peek at their Japan and Canada tours.

And the surprise bonus? The issue contains a free calendar inside, featuring, of course, the Mocha Girls.

Go ahead, treat yourself to a dose of Mocha and her girls. It's gonna be well worth it to find out what gets these six ladies going, moving, and rising up.

UNO magazine is available in all leading bookstores and magazine stands nationwide.

EXPERIENCE AN UNPRECEDENTED KIND OF REAL IN “WALKING WITH DINOSAURS: THE 3D MOVIE”

For the first time in movie history, audiences will truly see and feel what it was like when dinosaurs ruled the Earth.  “Walking with Dinosaurs: The 3D Movie” is the ultimate immersive, big-screen adventure for families.  You’ll meet dinosaurs more real than you’ve ever seen as you embark on a thrilling prehistoric journey, where Patchi, an underdog dino, triumphs against all odds to become a hero for the ages.
Featuring the voices of Patchi’s heroics and antics resonate in any era, but he is also a product of his times and stomping grounds – the latter part of the Cretaceous Period, about 70 million years ago in a land we now call Alaska.  
Audiences will really get behind Patchi and root for this underdog hero to triumph. The movie points to our continuing fascination, if not obsession with creatures that have been extinct for millions of years.  The T. Rex and the Gorgosaurus are among the most fearsome predators to have ever walked the Earth, but kids (of all ages) can’t get enough of them.  Dinosaurs spark our imaginations as much as any fictional creation does.
 
“Kids love dinosaurs, and they’re going to love “Walking with Dinosaurs” because it feels so real, has lots of humor and fun,” says John Leguizamo, who voices Alex, a prehistoric parrot who is Patchi’s best pal.  “Plus, they’ll love the camaraderie between Patchi and Alex.”  Dinosaurs combine the best of two worlds: they’re scary, but because dinos haven’t been around for millions of years, they’re non-threatening.  
Co-director Neil Nightingale believes our enduring obsession with them is here to stay.  “Dinosaurs are the most amazing creatures to have ever existed on our planet. In four and a half billion years of Earth’s existence, there have been no creatures that are more dramatic or terrifying.  Dinosaurs fascinate us because they represent a sort of safe danger.  You can be scared of them but not too scared because they are long gone.  They’re not going to come out from under the bed or pounce on you in the dark!  And it is not just dinosaurs we are talking about; it is The Age of Dinosaurs.  It is amazing to know that the world we now live in, the skies above us and the stars we see were once their realm– incredible animals now lost to prehistoric history.”
“In bringing WALKING WITH DINOSAURS to the big screen, we wanted to transport audiences back to a real world, to meet dinosaurs that truly existed and to immerse audiences in that world,” Nightingale continues.  “For a big motion picture experience it’s also vital to have a strong and emotionally engaging story.  So we used what we know about Late Cretaceous Alaskan dinosaurs as inspiration for a fictional, character-driven story we knew would entertain families.”  
In bringing the dinosaurs back to life, the producers have prepared these amazing tutorial videos on How To Draw A Dinosaur:  



Twentieth Century Fox and Reliance Entertainment present in association with IM Global, a BBC Earth Films and Evergreen Studios Production in association with Animal Logic, “Walking With Dinosaurs: The 3D Movie.” 

“Walking with Dinosaurs: The 3D Movie” is about to revolutionize 2D and 3D experience when it opens in cinemas nationwide on January 8 from 20th Century Fox to be distributed by Warner Bros.

‘My Little Bossings’ Brings Whiff of Fresh Air to MMFF 2013

Not every generation produces a child star but this year, we have not just one but two of them who are set to show people that like Christmas, the Metro Manila Film Festival (MMFF) is all about children even in making the tills sing.
My Little Bossings MIFF 2013
“My Little Bossings” is a movie whose time has come. Ever since the project was bared, the public has been counting months, waiting with bated breath how the precocious Ryzza Mae Dizon will jive with the decorous James “Bimby” Aquino Yap, Both charming and intelligent, but one street smart and the other “socially elite,” it’s an intriguing pairing indeed.   

As shooting progressed and as the two kids warmed up to each other and established rapport on and off screen, it became clear that “My Little Bossings” is more than mere curious case. It’s a casting dynamo bound to shakeup the MMFF and steal thunder from anything that crosses its path. “Nakakatuwa talaga yung dalawang bata. They complement each other so well. You can see that when you watch the movie. Nagtuturuan, nagtatawanan, sabay napapagod, sabay nagugutom. Masaya lang kami sa set. Para lang kaming laging naglalaro,” said “My Little Bossings” lead star and co-producer, Vic Sotto.
Kris Aquino, Ryzza Mae Dizon and James Bimby Aquino
That is another thing going for the film: the sure success of “My Little Bossings” doesn’t rest just on the shoulders of Ryzza Mae and Bimby, but those of giants. One of the MMFF Box-office King’s co-stars is also royalty, none other than Queen of All Media and MMFF Box-office Queen Kris Aquino. It is said that one of Kris’ reasons in accepting the film is that she wanted her son Bimby’s first experience in making movies to be with someone of Vic’s stature and humility.   
Ryzza Mae Dizon and James Bimby Aquino
For years, the MMFF doesn’t seem to be complete without a starrer from either Vic or Kris or both. This time they join hands; matching stellar power with stellar power, showbiz might with showbiz might, midas touch with midas touch. How can “My Little Bossings” not turn to gold?    
James Bimby Aquino and Vic Sotto

As most things come in threes, the power of the dream project doesn’t end there. “My Little Bossings” is produced by OctoArts Films, M-Zet Films, APT Entertainment and Kris Aquino Productions all of which have brought out their guns to ensure that it is a heartwarming, quality movie through and through. More than the big names attached to the film, “My Little Bossings” is a family film packed with lessons wrapped in humor, wit and laughter---exactly what we need in times like these.

Vic plays the role Torky Villanueva who works as a bookeeper for the millionaire cash management specialist Baba Atienza (Kris). Because of some conflict in her business, Baba entrusts her son Justin (Bimby) to Torky’s care for fear of her life. In the meantime, Torky’s niece Ice (Aiza) who lives in the same house with him, is involved in an advocacy for street children where street kid Ching (Ryzza ) becomes her special ward. Ice brings Ching home when the orphanage closed down. The fun begins when all these people start living in one roof while they each tackle his respective personal dilemma.

“My Little Bossings” also stars Aiza Seguerra, Jaclyn Jose, Jose Manalo, Paolo Ballesteros, Barbie Forteza, Neil Coleta, and Neil Sese from the direction of Marlon Rivera. Story and screenplay by Bibeth Orteza.

“My Little Bossings” starts showing on Christmas Day as an entry to the 2013 MMFF.
