The starry road to Hollywood

The Philippine Star

MANILA, Philippines - At 5:30 p.m. on May 9 (U.S. time), the stars of GMA Films’ horror film 

The Road

 walked down the red carpet and posed for the foreign media covering the film’s Hollywood Red Carpet Premiere held at the Arclight Theater in Los Angeles, California. 

The Yam Laranas film, which received rave reviews from both local and foreign press and also caught the attention of New York Times, is now showing in the US and Canada through a distribution deal between GMA Films and US-based film distribution company Freestyle Releasing.

Seen attending the event were cast members Marvin Agustin, Rhian Ramos, Alden Richards and Derrick Monasterio with GMA Films president Anna Teresa Gozon-Abrogar, Freestyle presidents Susan Jackson and Mark Borde, GMA Films project director Joey Abacan and Laranas.

Manny Pacquiao, MTRCB chair Grace Poe-Llamanzares, GMA Entertainment TV vice president Marivin Arayata, GMA Entertainment TV AVP Redgie Magno, GMA Corporate Communications AVP Angel Javier-Cruz and Tim Yap also graced the affair.  

After The Road’s screening, an after-party followed at The Lure, a club beside Arclight Theater.

GMA Films and Freestyle Releasing held a press conference last May 8 at the Barrio Fiesta Restaurant in Glendale, Los Angeles. It was attended by representatives from US-based Filipino media outfits.

The Road will also be shown in selected theaters in Singapore beginning tomorrow, May 15.

Talks between GMA Films and other film releasing companies are also underway for possible distribution of The Road in other countries.
