Women of controversies?

As the year comes to a close, social media has taken a hit from an onslaught of yearend recaps and stories. PornHub released its rankings, Twitter showed off its trending stories, and YouTube presented the most-viewed videos. Joining the fray, Google released its annual Year in Search.

Google Philippines Head of Communications and Public Affairs Mervin Wenke said, “the annual Year in Search serves as a lens to the most relevant topics in pop culture, events, sports, politics, and news that shaped 2019 for Filipinos. It also gives a glimpse into our way of life and how we search online.”

The recap has shown the topics Filipinos care about. There was the popular site Omegle, the Philippine elections, and the boxing match between Pacquiao and Broner. Other than the stories that made some noise on the internet, women also created buzz in 2019.

Topping the list of top trending female personalities is Jane De Leon, the actress taking upon the role of Darna. Miss Universe was also a hot topic, with Miss Universe Philippines 2019 Gazini Ganados and Miss Universe 2018 Catriona Gray taking their spot on the list.

Additionally, local female celebrities secured a spot in the rankings. Gretchen, Marjorie, and Julia Barretto made it to the list. After all, who wouldn’t forget how everyone talked about the Barretto feud? Internet celebrity Jelai Andres made it to the list, too, due to her controversy with a rapper from a Filipino hip hop group & collective.

Furthermore, international acts like Billie Eilish, Brie Larson from Captain Marvel, and Naomi Scott from Aladdin have joined the list. Internet.

Sadly, some of these women topped the search due to gossip and controversies. We hope that in 2020, people will look up more women who are making a positive impact in their respective fields.

The Witcher is getting an anime film on Netflix!

To be created by the animators of Legend of Korra

Netflix is on a roll lately! For the past week, the streaming service has consistently announced new titles that everyone has been clamoring for. Soon, we’re getting the Studio Ghibli collection and the very first Pokémon film remastered in CGI.

Today, Netflix has announced a quick follow-up to last year’s most iconic debuting show, The Witcher. In partnership with the renowned animators at Studio Mir, The Witcher showrunner Lauren Hissrich will return to the world of the series in a new anime film.

According to an official statement from Netflix, The Witcher: Nightmare of the Wolf will deal with “a new threat facing the Continent.” However, Hissrich has not confirmed who will star in the new film yet. From a tweet, the showrunner has kept the anime film a secret for over a year now. Presumably, the film will follow the events of the original series. At the very least, it should belong in the same universe.

Likewise, neither Netflix or Hissrich has confirmed the film’s premiere date.

On the production side, partnering animators Studio Mir created the acclaimed Legend of Korra in the past. The studio has also helmed the Netflix original, Voltron: Legendary Defender.

The Witcher follows the adventures of Geralt (Henry Cavill), a superhuman hunter, in a world fraught with monsters and sorcerers. Following its premier late last year, The Witcher quickly ascended the ranks as one of the most watched series on Netflix.

Netflix will premiere the very first Pokémon movie

But remastered in CGI

Published

on

Recently, Studio Ghibli has announced its arrival on Netflix. For the first time, Netflix viewers can finally watch their childhood favorites on the streaming service. In a strange bout of luck, Studio Ghibli isn’t the only childhood hero coming to Netflix.

Announced recently, Netflix will bring the very first Pokémon movie to its platform. Originally titled as Pokémon the Movie: Mewtwo Strikes Back, the 1998 film features Ash Ketchum and his beloved Pikachu going against a furious Mewtwo, the strongest Pokémon at the time.

Last year, the original filmmakers announced a remastered version of the original movie. Now dubbed as Mewtwo Strikes Back: EVOLUTION, the film reimagines the same story completely in CGI. The new graphics bring out the world of Pokémon not unlike the efforts of last year’s Detective Pikachu. However, instead of realistic fur and skin, the remastered edition will return to its smoothly rendered roots.

It is this version that Netflix is launching worldwide on February 27, 2020. The date is, of course, no coincidence, especially to the Pokémon fan. February 27 is globally known as Pokémon Day. This is also the first Pokémon movie to premiere on a streaming service immediately.

Currently, Netflix already has a handful of Pokémon content on its service including the current Pokémon Sun and Moon series of shows and films. The platform also has the original first season of the main series, Pokémon: Indigo League.
