Grateful to the max daw si Dingdong Dantes to Star Cinema for assigning him with two films, One More Try and She’s the One na still showing in SM theaters nationwide, na parehong moneymakers.

Aside from its being an official MMFF mo­neymaker, One More Try, likewise, won for Dingdong two best actors trophies (from Star Awards for Mo­vies of the Philippine Movie Press Club and the Guil­lermo Mendoza Scholarship Foundation Box-Office King and Queen Awards), for leading ladies, Angel Locsin, three best actress awards (from the same award-giving bodies and the FAMAS and for Angelica Pa­nganiban, a best actress trophy, too, from the Guillermo Foundation.

She’s the One co-stars Dingdong with Bea Alonzo and new actor Enrique Gil. Direction: Mae Czarina Cruz.

He hopes to produce a movie for his Agosto Dos Pictures, yes, following Tiktik: The Aswang Chronicle, which he co-produced with Dondon Monteverde’s film outfit, Reality Entertainment.
