- Her post garnered reactions from netizens on social media
Erik Matti’s film, ‘Kuwaresma’, has been Sharon Cuneta’s first ever horror film of her entire career. Aside from this, the film has gained positive reviews from moviegoers as well.
KAMI learned that the ‘Queen of All Media’ Kris Aquino has expressed her support to Sharon and the film by watching it on the big screen yesterday, May 17, 2019.
However, Kris revealed in her online post that her son, Bimby Yap, was unable to watch the film as the cinema staff caught them and asked them to leave.
In her post, Kris revealed that they ‘tried’ to sneak Bimby in as the film was rated R13, “You know how some people can get away with like literally big crimes & they get a free pass, and some people like yours truly attempt to bend the rules just a teeny tiny bit and automatically get caught? On purpose, it was just me, @rochelleahorro, @bincailuntayao, and jane with no guards, really low key, to watch the 7:55 PM screening of KUWARESMA so we wouldn’t attract attention... since Bimb is so tall, Rochelle said hindi na mapapansin- and Bimb & i really wanted to watch @reallysharoncuneta’s movie.
“Well, we were caught and in fairness to the @iloveayalamallscinemas staff they were even apologetic that unfortunately we’re “famous” and a lot of people know Bimb is only 12 and they didn’t want to get in trouble with the MTRCB. What we managed to watch (close to 30 minutes before we were asked to leave) was creepy, and the 3 main actors, Sharon, @johnarcilla, and the fresh discovery portraying “Luis” were all completely immersed in their roles and the sepia feel of the cinematography gave the movie a hard to distinguish time frame (was guessing the 1960s-70s).
“The musical scoring did a lot to transport us to the past. Soon enough this movie will be available via VOD and we’ll get to watch its completion then (promised Bimb i won’t watch it without him)- which does bring up something worth discussing, our not yet adult kids can watch movies and series (example Game of Thrones) with very mature themes, on their gadgets & maybe the classification of movies is something that needs re-evaluation because access has become so much easier because of streaming (netflix, amazon, iflix), prime cable (HBO, Showtime etc), and iTunes and Google Play.
“No excuses, mali kami for trying na ipuslit si bimb- but the reality is in a few months time he’ll be able to watch Kuwaresma through Video on Demand. Excited lang kami to support sa theatrical run @reallysharoncuneta’s 1st horror film. But this Mama has learned her lesson, R13 movies showing in cinemas will wait until April 19, 2020. #motherhood #lifelessons.”
One netizen, however, felt bad that Bimby couldn’t even get a pass for the movie. Kris then replied to the comment stating that the cinema’s course of action was only fair, “@solecism1981 i think it’s fair. And mas okay na that we were asked to leave rather than naging issue that we got preferential treatment.”
Her post also garnered reactions and comments from netizens on social media as well.
"This is the side of you that most people are just so blind on purpose to see. You have a good heart and so down to earth character."
"Sayang naman at di nakalusot si bimb! Minsan lang pupuslit ay nahuli pa!"
"Also the same thing happend to my son today at ayalamallscinema in Bacolod. He wasnt allowed entry to an R16 movie. He is only 15."
"Ahehe funny! Glad miss @krisaquino done something naughty for once! Sayang lang nahuli pa."
"Ok lng yan Ms Kris. At least, napakita mo kay Mam Sharon ung suporta mo. "
As reported earlier by KAMI, Kris Aquino replied to a recent post about her by Lolit Solis. One of the topics she discussed in her reply was about GMA-7. The actress-host explained why she did not become a Kapuso artist after her ABS-CBN stint.
Kris Aquino is known as the “Queen of All Media” due to her success as a movie star, TV actress, talk show host, brand endorser, and social media celebrity. Her son Bimby is her child with ex-husband James Yap. Philip Salvador is the father of her eldest, Josh.
