Chris Evans is back as Steve Rogers in CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE WINTER SOLDIER


Chris Evans reprises his role as the iconic Super Hero Steve Rogers in Marvel's “Captain America: The Winter Soldier.”

“In this film a good amount of time has passed since the events with The Avengers, so Steve Rogers has had time to process what has happened to him,” says director Anthony Russo. “As the world’s greatest soldier, Cap moves on from the U.S. Army and goes to work for S.H.I.E.L.D., which creates a conflict in him because S.H.I.E.L.D. is a complicated spy organization that deals in grays and clandestine motivation, and that’s not who Cap really is.”

Sullivan Stapleton plays Athenian general Themistokles in 300: RISE OF AN EMPIRE


No “300” film is complete without a small group of protagonists facing impossible odds and a strong uniting figure to lead them into battle. In Warner Bros. Pictures and Legendary Pictures’ “300: Rise of an Empire,” that hero is Australian actor Sullivan Stapleton (HBO’s “Strike Back”) playing the Athenian general Themistokles, who is driven to defend Greece against the powerful Persian Navy.

Previously seen on the big screen with supporting roles in “Gangster Squad,” “Animal Kingdom” and “December Boys,” Stapleton is poised to become a newly-minted leading man, thanks to “300: Rise of an Empire.”

Finally, here comes the 1st trailer of TRANSFORMERS: AGE OF EXTINCTION!


Finally, the long wait is over!  The first trailer of Michael Bay's fourth "Transformers" film, called “Transformers: Age of Extinction,” has arrived!

Mark Wahlberg, Stanley Tucci, Jack Reynor, Nicola Peltz, Kelsey Grammar and Sophia Myles lead the cast of this $165 million feature set for release in the Philippines June this year.

Synopsis: Four years after the catastrophic events in Chicago, Earth has mostly recovered from the great war between the Autobots and the Decepticons. But when Cade Yeager (Wahlberg), a struggling inventor, and his daughter, Tessa (Peltz) discover Optimus Prime, they bring down Decepticons, Autobots and the US government on them.

Matteo Guidielli signs up as Mentos' 1st Endorser in the Philippines


If you thought you knew everything there is to know about newly-minted Mentos endorser Matteo Guidicelli, then think again. Sure, we've all watched him grow into one of the most exciting young leading men around, but there's so much more to this crush-worthy guy than meets the eye. For example, you'd be surprised that he and Oscar winning actress Whoopi Goldberg share a connection. Well...sort of.

“I sang in a black gospel choir. It was an unforgettable experience. Singing in different churches in South Side, Chicago was life-changing. It felt magical,” the half-Italian hottie shared with us. Alright, so maybe the whole Whoopi/Sister Act 2 connection is a bit of a stretch. Still, it's one of those fun facts that spell out just how f-r-e-s-h this h-u-n-k can be. “I like being adventurous, trying out new things, and just going all out.” While it's no secret that the 23-year-old has always been the athletic type, he admits that the kick he gets from triathlons is just one of the craziest things he craves. “Training non-stop and racing in Hawaii for the world championships. That, I would say, was over the top.”

Tamaraw Conservation Efforts Highlighted in the 1st World Wildlife Day Celebration


World Wildlife Day is an opportunity for the international community to celebrate the globe's wild plant and animal life while redoubling efforts to protect them. The World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF) welcomes recent achievements to safeguard wildlife, laments the losses and looks toward a future in which people can truly live in harmony with nature.

The ‘Tams-2’ Project aims to double wild Tamaraw numbers from 300 to 600 by 2020. Owing to aggressive public and private sector efforts, Tamaraw numbers have jumped from 153 in 2002 to 345 by April 2013. Shown is a Tamaraw bull in Occidental Mindoro, the Philippines. (Gregg Yan / WWF) 

The United Nations General Assembly set aside March 3 to raise awareness of the intrinsic value of wildlife and its contributions to sustainable development and human well-being. The day, which marks the signing of the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora (CITES) in 1973, is also being used to underscore the need to fight wildlife crime.
