Print

Singer and actor Sam Concepcion is coming back stronger than ever. With the release of the first single “Kalsada” from latest album “Bago”, Sam’s first full-length album in three years is now available via Universal Records.

Constantly striving to reinvent his music after five albums under Universal Records, Sam shared “This is, I guess, is a new me—a new identity. It’s more organic, it’s more truthful to what I want to make and where I wanna take my music. This is quite a bit of a risk but it’s a step towards the right direction.”

Releasing the long-awaited follow-up to his album “Infinite” (2013), “Bago” is like a gust of fresh air, blowing the dominance of Electronic Dance Music in contemporary pop in the kick-off single “Kalsada.”

Sam said, “This is a type of song that you wanna listen to when you’re going on a night-out or long drive because it’s about getting away. It talks about escape from reality, being young and having fun.” Continue reading “Universal Records: Sam Concepcion is back with ‘Bago’”

OctoArts Films: Bruce Willis is Back in Action in ‘Marauders’

MARAUDERS_OFFICIAL POSTER
In Marauders, Bruce Willis stars in what is set to be his biggest action movie since the Die Hard series. The story revolves around a bank robbery where there is more than meets the eye. What seemed to be a run-of-the-mill heist turns out to have deeper roots that are interconnected to a suave high-profile banker Jeffrey Hubert (Willis).

Marauders Trailer:
https://goo.gl/LazDHT

Short Synopsis:
When a bank is hit by a brutal heist, all evidence points to the owner (Bruce Willis) and his high—powered clients. But as a group of FBI agents (Christopher Meloni, Dave Bautista and Adrian Grenier) dig deeper into the case—and the deadly heists continue—it becomes clear that a larger conspiracy is at play.

Sensing a conspiracy at play, the FBI steps in to investigate, and they stumble upon something similar to opening a can of worms. Here, Willis is suitably supported by a cast of impressive actors: Christopher Meloni (Law and Order: SVU), Adrian Grenier (Entourage) and Dave Bautista (Guardians of the Galaxy), who play the FBI agents trying to unravel the string of events that can point towards the real culprit.
Action aficionados will enjoy the exhilarating gunplay and the tough talk, with Dave Bautista pulling more than just muscle. The more cerebral conspiracy theorists will have a field day in this thrilling whodunit, all the while guessing whether the top banker (not the butler) is the one holding the silver candlestick that could explain all the brutal robberies.

The movie released in the US by Lionsgate, is megged by director Steven C. Miller, who last worked with Willis on The Extraction. It is released locally by Octoarts Films International and will be shown in Philippine theaters on July 13, 2016.
