The Internet Is Already Creating SONA-Inspired Movies Directed by Joyce Bernal

We'd buy tickets, tbh.

( There's a lot you can do while waiting for the State of the Nation Address to start. (It started an hour late.) And that includes tweeting memes and dreaming about all the shows and movies that can be made based on the State of the Nation Address (SONA). It's not that hard to think of the SONA as a big movie—it's already got a red carpet, shiny designer outfits, and all the drama you would expect (there's a new Speaker of the House?!). Plus, the live coverage is directed by none other than Joyce Bernal, who's known for her rom-com movies.


So, as Internet users watched President Duterte take to the stage for his third SONA at the Batasang Pambansa, they had a little fun themselves and shared their own ideas about movie—complete with a title and dialogue—based on the event. 

Shan Cai is #shookt.

It's an ad lib.


It's her signature style.

That...would actually make for a great movie.

Is that you, Kimmy Dora?

Wow, this seems all planned out.

For some fourth-wall breaking.

Who'll play Khaleesi?

You gotta admire the effort for the poster.

Let's just hope movie producers are paying attention, because the Internet might be on to something here.
