The Metro Manila Film Festival (MMFF) may be a numbers game, but it’s also a friendly competition—at least to its biggest stars.
This was proven earlier today by Coco Martin—who headlines the MMFF entry Jack Em Popoy with Vic Sotto and Maine Mendoza—when he praised two other MMFF entries, namely the horror film Aurora and the family-friendly offering Fantastica.
Aurora stars Anne Curtis in the lead role while Fantastica features a star-studded cast led by Vice Ganda.
The actor congratulated Anne on the success of Aurora—her third film this year following Sid & Aya: Not A Love Story and Buy Bust.
“Sana mapanood po ninyo ang pelikula na ito napakaganda po ng pagkakagawa!!! Congrats Mam sa sunod sunod na magagandang pelikula mo!!!😍😍😍😉😉😉,” he said.
Anne, for her part, replied: “Salamat Mister Officer! Huhu. Na touch ako. Thank you!!!! Sana makagawa din tayo one day!!👌🏼👊🏼❤️ Congratulations din sya buong Team nyo at ang lakas din Ng movie nyo!!!!”
Coco also congratulated the cast of Fantastica for a successful premiere at the box office, saying: “Congrats sa lahat ng bumubuo ng Fantastica napasaya natin ang buong Pilipinas sa araw ng Pasko!!!👏👏👏👍👍👍😍😍😍.”
The MMFF opened on December 25 and will run until January. Aside from the mentioned entries, the remaining films in this year’s lineup are The Girl in the Orange Dress; Rainbow’s Sunset; Otlum; One Great Love; and Mary, Marry Me.
