  • List of Movies to Watch This August 2018
  • Did you know that the first set of films featured in the Philippines was born in the New Year of 1897, but can be traced back in the Christmas of 1896?

    From the advent of motion pictures in the Philippines—given birth to by a Spaniard, who would have thought that the Philippines, whose cinematic history started from theater and silent motion pictures, can now enjoy a variety of caliber movies produced from around the world?

    This August, Philippine Primer gives you its list of international movies to watch in theaters nationwide!

    Disney’s Christopher Robin

    We first came to know Christopher Robin as the boy with a yellow bear for a friend and an over-all imagination fit for a creative mind. What happens, however, when the playful young boy grew up and lost all room for imagination, washed away by the realities the world has to offer? Together with their friends from the Hundred Acre Wood, Pooh goes out of his way to bring the child out of the woods.

    Release Date: August 1, 2018

    The Meg

    The Megalodon made its way to Discovery Channel in 2013 as a documentary about the “monster shark” that lived millions of years ago. Although the possibility of the monster shark plaguing the seas is null today, the cinematic universe explores the existence of the 75-foot shark, rising up from the abyss of the ocean, to devour anything and anyone on its path. With Jason Statham at the forefront of this science-horror film, viewers may expect a film, high on adrenaline.

    Release date: August 8, 2018

    Still/Born

    Nothing breaks a mother’s heart more than losing a child. With only one of the twins surviving from the ill-fated childbirth, what happens next will make the Mary let her protective streak out, to shield her surviving Adam from being captured by a demon. With the direction of Brandon Christen, Still/Born, which was first released in 2017, haunts Philippine cinemas the first of August.

    The Little Mermaid
