“Ang Panahon ng Halimaw”: Lav Diaz’s new film hits theaters on May 30th
“Ang Panahon ng Halimaw”, the new film from Lav Diaz, has dropped a new teaser trailer. The 90-second clip debuted alongside the announcement (via its official Facebook Page) of the film’s official release date. As we’ve previously reported, the film premiered at the UPFI – Cine Adarna last month and is now slated for a wider release later this month.
Alongside the new trailer, a new promo art has been released, featuring a two-face split between Piolo Pascual and Shaina Magdayao’s characters. The previous poster trod a similar approach and was frankly more effective. But for marketing purposes, this new one will have to stick.
The film is directed by Lav Diaz. It stars Piolo Pascual, Shaina Magdayao, Angel Aquino and Bituin Escalante. Its official synopsis follows:
Fearless young doctor Lorena opens a clinic for the poor but disappears without a trace shortly afterwards. Her husband, the poet, activist and teacher, Hugo Haniway, wants to find out the truth of his wife’s whereabouts. When he arrives, he is confronted with a community shattered by despotism and violence.
“Ang Panahon ng Halimaw” opens across Philippine theaters on May 30, 2018.
