LKNA boldly faces off Star Wars this 2016

Three directors including Mark Meily and Chris Martinez present Bob Ong's "Lumayo Ka nga sa Akin" this January. It's a trilogy rolling comedy, action, horror and drama into one. 

Meily says this format suits the modern attention span. With their background in advertising, the three directors hit the spot

Meily's episode 1 "Bala sa Bala, Kamao sa Kamao, Satsat sa Satsat" features veteran comedians Benjie Paras and Candy Pangilinan.

I must say they unexpectedly look good together as a love team! An unlikely survivor of a massacre after his church wedding (Paras) falls in love with a famous actress (Pangilinan) who unwittingly leads him to the drug lord who caused all the trouble. P for power!:)

The second episode "Shake, Shaker, Shakest" features award-winning actress Maricel Soriano after her break from the silver screen.

It's a haunted house tale reminiscent of Soriano's horror films in the past. I hope they include Manilyn Reynes and Tina Paner next time :p

Meanwhile, Martinez handles episode 3, a soap-opera parody entitled "Asawa ni Marie"  

It's a hilarious love quadrangle story involving the poor farmgirl Marie played by Cristine Reyes. 

Martinez shares he disciplined himself to wrap up the story in 40mins. He is hopeful that in this format "We have more variety in terms of stories coz we have a lot of stories to tell."

Lumayo Ka Nga sa Akin is still showing in local cinemas.
