Historical films, once considered unexciting, have now crossed over to mainstream pop culture thanks to the unprecedented success of the movie Heneral Luna. The film has sparked a yearning and curiosity among Filipino filmgoers for movies with a similarly rich historical and cultural value. Among the films that have gained renewed attention is the 2014 epic Bonifacio: Ang Unang Pangulo.
Bonifacio: Ang Unang Pangulo won Best Picture at the Metro Manila Film Festival in 2014 as well as this year’s Star Awards and FAMAS. It is also the unofficial kick-off to the historical wave that Heneral Luna started. The film even featured a mid-credit teaser of Heneral Luna during its cinema run.
With the same producers behind both films, movie fans will now have a chance to relive the revolution and see Bonifacio: Ang Unang Pangulo this November, with the limited theatrical release of the International Version. Featuring English subtitles, the movie’s local release coincides with the US premiere in New York City on November 30 in time for the celebration of the birth anniversary of Andres Bonifacio.
Bigger, better, and more action-packed, this particular version features fresh footage and new content delivered by its lead star Robin Padilla. Earlier this year, the international version of Bonifacio: Ang Unang Pangulo was honored with a standing ovation during its European premiere in Barcelona.
Bonifacio: Ang Unang Pangulo (International Version) is produced by Fernando Ortigas for Tuko Films Productions and Eduardo Rocha for Buchi Boy Films. Distributed by Solar Entertainment, the film opens on Wednesday, November 25 in cinemas in SM Megamall, SM North EDSA, SM Manila, SM Fairview, and SM Sta. Mesa.
