“COMET” to Hit Philippine Cinemas this February

After the success of the film “Begin Again” which starred Adam Levine and Keira Knightley, Solar Pictures brings “COMET” - a cosmic love story that is sure to leave moviegoers with that warm feeling just in time for February.

“Comet”,which features Golden Globe nominee Emmy Rossum  (“The Day After Tomorrow”, “The Phantom of the Opera”, “Mystic River”) and Justin Long (“Live Free or Die Hard”, “He’s Just Not That Into You”),  is an original modern love story about Kimberly (Rossum) and Dell (Long), who  met at a Hollywood cemetery where they have both come to watch a meteor shower.

Though not your typical pair, Kimberly as witty and beautiful and Dell as nerdy, pessimistic but with a sharp mind and direct manner are drawn to each other. And under a luminous night sky with falling stars, they begin their epic love story.

What started as a regular romance becomes surreal as viewers are taken into a few parallel universes when their six-year relationship zigzags back and forth through the lens of their meeting and four other pivotal moments: 1) a monumental fight at a friend’s wedding in Paris; 2) a break up conversation after Dell has moved to New York; 3) a reconnection on a train ride along the California coast; and 4) when Dell pops in on Kimberly unexpectedly in her home in Hollywood Hills.

The leaps between these moments are seamlessly woven together to create a sense that Kimberly and Dell are destined to be together, if not in this universe then maybe the next as their story transcends time and space.

Content Media introduced and screened the film to international distributors for the first time at the 2014 American Film Market (AFM) last November and was then picked up by Solar Pictures, among other films.
“The universal theme and inventive storytelling in ‘Comet’ have us believing that audiences will really connect with the film,” said Content Media President of Film Jamie Carmichael. “We were drawn in immediately and are happy to have this film…”

COMET, directed by Sam Esmail, opens in cinemas nationwide on February 25, 2014.

Never Too Late to Polka

The first month of the year is now drawing to a close and I know that I'm already days too late for a New Year outfit. But what the heck, here I am wearing polka dots to welcome the year with a bang.

Keeping up with beliefs and traditions, black and white proves to be a classic combination.

I'm lovin' my sequin / glitter sneakers. The pair reminds me of fireworks.

So let's start the year with high hopes. Happy new year everyone!
