Fans of the original Joey Gosiengfiao 80s cult classic flocked to two premieres of the Temptation Island remake-one on Sunday, July 3, at SM Megamall Cinema 9 and another VIP screening on Monday, July 4, at the Newport Cinema in Resorts World. Directed by Chris Martinez, this campier version stars "It" girls Heart Evangelista, Marian Rivera, Lovi Poe, and Solenn Heussaff as four beauty pageant finalists who found themselves stranded in a desert island with only the clothes-rather, gowns-on their back.
The Megamall cinema was packed with fans, press, and actors, including members of the movie’s star-studded cast: Solenn Heussaff, Marian Rivera, Lovi Poe, John Lapus, Rufa Mae Quinto, Tom Rodriguez and model-turned-actor Mikael Daez. In an interview with PEP.ph during the premiere, Daez admitted he found it a bit embarrassing to see himself on the big screen but said he’s grateful for the opportunity nonetheless. "I think Direk (Chris) really did a good job... Happy lang ako na I got to work on my first movie." Noticeably absent though were Heart Evangelista and her reel lover, Aljur Abrenica.
Other personalities who graced the premiere were renowned veteran actress Celia Rodriguez, Temptation Island producer Lily "Mother Lily" Monteverde, her daughter Roselle Monteverde Teo, eventologist Tim Yap, directors Joel Lamangan and Ricky Davao and TV anchor Korina Sanchez. More celebrity sightings included models Fabio Ide, Hideo Muroaka, Geoff Taylor, Stef Prescott, and actress Roxanne Barcelo. Anne Curtis' beau Erwan Heussaff also arrived with his father to support his sister Solenn. Even politicians found time to attend to the premiere-spotted at the cinema were former solon Richard Gordon, Sen. Antonio Trillanes, and Col. Ariel Querubin. Spotted at the VIP premiere at the Newport Cinema were Tessa Prieto Valdes, Ruffa Gutierrez, Annabelle Rama, Bubbles Paraiso and Cristalle Belo Henares.
Temptation Island opens in in cinemas today, July 6. It has a PG13 rating.
