Four of today’s biggest entertainment icons come together in the film “The Revenger Squad”

 

Get ready for another fun-filled adventure-comedy film, “The Revenger Squad”, from the Unkabogable Star Vice Ganda with Daniel Padilla, and introducing 2015 Miss Universe Ms. Pia Wurtzbach in her comeback film role after her win. The Star Cinema and Viva Films movie is one of the 43rd Metro Manila Film Festival (MMFF) entry, which will be screened outside the Philippines via TFC@theMovies starting December 28.

The Revengers Squad marks the coming together of Vice Ganda, Padilla, Wurtzbach, and director Bb. Joyce Bernal – a certified dream team composed of talented members who are individually considered as four of the country’s biggest entertainment icons.

Vice Ganda is a six-time Phenomenal Box-Office Star, whose track record in the MMMF remains unsurpassed for the past years. Vice consistently broke all box office records in all of his films and is probably the most instrumental star who redefined the landscape of mainstream movies with his megawatt blockbuster draw that cuts across every category of age, class, and gender.

For his latest film, Vice will be starring with a certified Box Office King, Padilla, also with a mammoth of successful films. The strength of Padilla’s popularity is also translated on the small screen as his current primetime telerserye on ABS-CBN, La Luna Sangre remains to bring in one of the highest ratings in the Philippine television.

Adding color to the lineup of stars is Wurtzbach, who created international headlines when she was crowned Miss Universe in the historic Miss Universe 2015 pageant. She snatched the coveted title and brought a well-deserved honor to the Philippines and to every Filipino in the most dramatic of fashions, transcending her status from celebrity to the exhilarating level of both national hero and national treasure.

Under the helm of Bernal and written by Danno Mariquit, “The Revenger Squad” marks a lot of firsts for Vice, Padilla, and Wurtzbach. This is the first time that Vice Ganda and Padilla will be doing a superhero film, with the latter also trying his hand in comedy the first time. Meantime, this is the big screen debut of Wurtzbach after her big win.

The story of “The Revenger Squad” revolves around makeup and rags reseller Emy (Vice Ganda) who, despite his faulty memory, never forgets to guard his younger brother Chino (Daniel Padilla) from harm – to the point of becoming overprotective of his younger brother. The fun begins when Chino turns 21 and Emy remembers the truth about them – that he is the superhero Gandarra and that Chino’s super abilities will soon activate now that he is an adult. Wanting to shelter Chino from the dangers of being a superhero, Emy keeps the truth from his brother and becomes even more protective.

This, until a new superhero emerges, Rapiddo, who Emy discovers is his younger brother Chino. He then decides to become Gandarra again to secretly help and protect his brother. Together with Emy’s super best buddies, Gandarra and Rapiddo become a squad of superheroes who treat each other as family.

The conflict begins when the eccentric superhero Kweenie (Pia Wurtzbach) enters their lives and drops the truth that could break their family.

Completing the team of Gandarra, Kweenie, and Rapiddo are the motley group of lovable super heroes namely Barna (Carla Estrada), Higopa (MC Calaquian), Flawlessa (Lassy Marquez), Pospora (Wacky Kiray), and Enrique Heal (JJ Quilantang).

What makes a hero super? Is it special abilities and superpowers? Or is it the innate ability of the hero to love? Will love, laughter, and joy save the day from the forces of evil?

Find out and witness the adventures of the newest defenders of the world in “The Revengers Squad”, which will screen outside the Philippines via TFC@theMovies on the following dates and countries: Australia and New Zealand on December 28; U.S. and Canada on December 29; United Kingdom on December 29, 30, and 31; Austria on December 29 and 30; Rome, Italy on December 31; Thailand on January 6 and 7; January 7 in Milan and Torino, Italy; Malta and Taiwan on January 7; Madrid, Spain on January 7; Papua New Guinea and Brunei on January 11; Saipan on January 12; Hong Kong and Singapore on January 14, and soon in other countries.
