After having a super busy year with blockbuster movies such as “Buy Bust” and “Sid & Aya: Not A Love Story,” this 2018, Multimedia Sweetheart Anne Curtis is about to end the year with a bang with her new horror film “Aurora.”
During the grand press conference of “Aurora” held at Novotel Manila Araneta Center last night, Anne and Pinoy Hollywood filmmaker Direk Yam Laranas answered questions from the press. One of which was if Anne feels any pressure to carry the movie all by herself.
“Grabe naman ‘yun. Nakakapressure naman ‘yun. At the same time, I have so much faith in this film because at the end of the day, it’s not about me, It’s about the film,” Anne said.
According to Direk Yam, the movie does not need an all-star cast because Anne’s character “Leana” is the main anchor of the story, describing the film as “story of survival.”
“I want a strong woman in this film. I want a strong woman who is a fighter in this film, and that’s the character of Anne,” he said.
Despite feeling pressured, Anne wanted people to watch and help spread the word about “Aurora” because of how amazing the film is.
“Naprepressure ako dahil sa sinasabi na ‘wala kang kasama na talagang all-star cast’ but at the end of the day, I hope people decide to watch the film not because it’s me but because they really want to watch a quality and amazing film,” Anne stated.
After the ship, Aurora, sunk near their island, everybody knows that their hometown is doomed. But after Leana made a deal with the families of the missing passengers, she and her 8-year old sister, Rita, choose to stay in the island and keep their hotel open in case any of the dead bodies will be washed ashore. However, as days go by, ghosts begin to bother and haunt their seemingly normal life in the island.
