This Hilarious New Movie Follows Holduppers Planning the Perfect Crime
Or at least, trying to.
(SPOT.ph) Everyone's been through it at least once: You're walking down a dark street by yourself, praying that you won't come face-to-face with a holdupper. You've probably played out the situation in your head a million times—do you give up your belongings, fight back, or just run as far and as fast as you can? But even if you've tried thinking of all the possible escape routes, you've probably never thought about the other side of the situation. What goes on behind a holdup? That's what Ang Pangarap Kong Holdup is all about—well, for the most part. The comedy movie is set to be released on November 28, but it's going to have an advanced screening on November 23 at UP Cine Adarna at 8 p.m.
In the hilarious trailer, Eman (Pepe Herrera) talks about the pressure of growing up in a family of holduppers. His group of (wannabe) holduppers includes Toto (Jerald Napoles) the muscle of the group, Carlo (Jelson Bay) who's always hungry, and the new recruit Nicoy (Paolo Contis). Together, they plan to be the best holduppers in their barangay even though things don't always go their way.
In another teaser, Eman talks about dressing up as a ghost to spook their victim, who will then drop their things and run off. But Carlo is worried about the plan happening at night, saying, "Sigurado ba kayong sa gabi tayo lalabas? Di ba delikado 'yan? Baka ma-holdup tayo niyan." Despite their botched plans, the group of four comes across a new target that might just solve all of their financial problems—while also making them the town's best holduppers.
The LOL-worthy clips are enough reason to catch the movie when it premieres or when it screens in advance on November 23. The early screening will also have an open forum with the film's cast and director, Marius Talampas. Tickets for the event are at P150.
