A certified box office hit: Successful ‘Guerrero’ rescreening in Baliuag, Bulacan


(Eagle News) – Eagle Broadcasting Corporation’s first film venture, “Guerrero” had its successful re-screening at SM Baliuag in Bulacan last August 17 to 18.

The internationally acclaimed film which won awards had its re-screening this weekend with moviegoers flocking to the SM cinemas in Baliuag to see the movie again.

The film had its first screening in 2017.

“I am happy and grateful. It’s been two years since Guerrero started but the same feeling is there. The people’s reaction to the film is so overwhelming,” said Joyce Cabanlong, one of the film’s cast members.

Genesis Gomez who plays the lead character in the film said all the success and awards that the movie had reaped were blessings from God.

He said that during the shooting of the film, they were all concentrated on the scenes, and conducted devotional prayers for the film’s success.

After ng mga screening, nagkaroon ng mga awards… Sobrang bait ng Diyos (After the various screenings, the awards came..   God is truly good),” Gomez said.

The audience who came to the film’s rescreening were quite diverse, coming from all walks of like. The program was hosted by rapper “Rapido” of E25 Records.

The film’s director Carlo Ortega Cuevas also told the audience in Bulacan that Guerrero would soon have a sequel, “Guerrero Dos: Tuloy ang Laban.”

The film “Guerrero” won the “Best Editing of a Foreign Language Film” award at the Madrid International Film Festival. It was also declared as the “Best Feature Comedy Film” at the Amsterdam International Film Festival of World Cinema in August last year.

Child actor Julio Caesar Sabenorio also won the ‘Movie Child Performer of the Year’ award for Guerrero from the 34th Philippine Movie Press Club (PMPC) Star Awards for Movies last year.
