“COMET” TO HIT PHILIPPINES THIS FEBRUARY

“COMET” TO HIT PHILIPPINES THIS FEBRUARY

“A
beautifully rendered experience that excels on nearly
every level” Awards Circuit

 Following the success of the Adam Levine-Kiera
Knightley starrer Begin Again, Solar Pictures brings to local cinemas “COMET”–
a cosmic love story that is sure to leave audiences with that warm February
feeling.

 “Comet,” stars Golden Globe nominee Emmy
Rossum (“The Day After Tomorrow,” “The Phantom of the Opera,” “Mystic River”)
and Justin Long (“Live Free or Die Hard,” “He’s Just Not That Into You”).

 "Comet” is an original modern love story
that follows Kimberly (Rossum) and Dell (Long), who first meet at the Hollywood
cemetery where they’ve both come to watch a meteor shower.

 Kimberly is brilliant and beautiful;
Dell is nerdy and pessimistic, but with an incredibly sharp mind and direct
manner. While she and he are not a natural pair, they are cosmically drawn to
each other and, under a night sky, luminous with falling stars, they begin
their epic love story.

 As the opening title card states the
events “take place over six years (a few parallel universes over).”

 But what starts as a typical romance quickly
turns dreamlike as viewers leap back and forth in time, examining their
eventual six-year relationship through the lens of their meeting and four other
pivotal moments: a monumental fight at a friend’s wedding in Paris; a break up
conversation after Dell has moved to New York; a reconnection on a train ride
along the California coast; and finally, when Dell pops in on Kimberly
unexpectedly in her home in the Hollywood Hills.

 The leaps between these moments are
seamlessly woven together to create a sense that this love story transcends
time and space and that Kimberly and Dell are destined to be together, if not
in this universe, then maybe the next.

 Content Media introduced and screened
the film to international distributors for the first time at the 2014 American
Film Market (AFM) last November and was then picked up by Solar Pictures, among
other films.

 “The universal theme and inventive
storytelling in ‘Comet’ have us believing that audiences will really connect
with the film,” said Content Media President of Film Jamie Carmichael. “We were
drawn in immediately and are happy to have this film…” COMET opens in cinemas nationwide on
February 25, 2014 and is released by Solar Pictures.

What do the world’s most powerful people drive?
Carmudi checks out the rides of this planet’s top 5 most
influential people!

Power and riches. These are the two words that
best described the top 5 most powerful people around the world and their daily
drive. Carmudi, the fastest and leading online vehicle platform, take a
quick detour about the most influential people (in the field of business, politics,
finance, and even religion) and their humble beginnings as well.

Vladimir Putin “the Gray Cardinal”. Putin has been
the President of Russia since 2012. He also served as President from 2000 to
2008 and Prime Minister from 1999 to 2000. His
first car was a Zaporozhets, the cheapest car in the market which equivalent to
the price of 1000 bottles of Vodka. He got the car when he was in his third
year at the University. Like the Volkswagen Beetle, the Zaporozhets becomes the
“People’s Car” of the Soviet Union during the sixties era. Putin now owns a
fleet of Russian cars such as the Lada Kalina priced between $4,972 to $5,000,
the Niva priced at $4,200, and the 1956 ivory-colored Volga GAZ-21 with price
ranging from $4,500 up to $10,000. On his stable, Putin collections includes a
stretched of armored Mercedes-Benz S 600 Guard Pullman priced at $1.62 million and
Mercedes-Benz Gelandewagen that cost around $434,000.

Barack “No Drama” Obama. Obama
is the first African American to be the 44th President of the United
States. Prior to becoming the President, Obama owned a luxurious 2005 Chrysler
300C V8 engine that received loads of criticism due to the lack of fuel
efficiency. Then, he switched to more environmentally friendly car such as the
2007 Ford Escape Hybrid that was later on auctioned. Obama’s state car, which
was nicknamed “The Beast”, is an 8-ton monster with an estimated price of $1.5
million. With doors weighing similar to Boeing 757 jetliner, the car is equipped
with night vision, blood bank, and gas tank that won’t explode upon direct hits.
The car is also bulletproof and bomb resistant.

 “Daddy” Xi Jinping. Xi
is the President of the People’s Republic of China and Chairman of the central
military commission. Often
referred to as the paramount leader of China, Xi Jinping in a way endorses
Hongqi, China’s only domestically manufactured luxury car used as the official
government state car (and also open for sale to the people of the Republic).

 Hongqi L5 limousine is priced at $800,000 filled with all goodies.
The car has been used during his state visit to New Zealand. Weighing around
6950-kg, the Hongqi L5 limousine comes loaded with oriental history visible in
its jaded door handles, fine leather interior and hand-carved wood trims.

 “The cold calling” Pope Francis. Jorge Mario Bergoglio is the pope of the Catholic Church in
which he serves as Bishop of Rome and sovereign of the Vatican City State.
Auctioned his Fiat Panda 4×4 late last year to raise money for the poor, Pope
Francis was building bathrooms for the homeless in the shadows of St. Peter’s
Basilica. His holiness previous car was auctioned off at a princely sum of
$244,000. At present, he rides a 1984 Renault 4 Hatchback as his daily car,
which has a mileage of 300,000 kilometers. The Pope was also seen riding a
blue-colored Ford Focus second generation at Castel Gandolfo in Rome.

 "Mutti” Angela Merkel. Angela
Merkel is a German politician and former research scientist who has been the
leader of Christian Democratic Union and chancellor of Germany. Known to
alternate between brands to use as her state car, Merkel was ranked as the
world’s second most powerful person by Forbes magazine in 2013.Her 1990
Volkswagen Golf was auctioned off on Ebay back in 2012, and almost reached a
bid of €130,000 where the auction was later dropped as “none of the bidders had
serious interest”. However, it finally went to the highest bidder for €10,165.
One of her notable moment was when she arrives at the EU summit in Brussels
late last year with a ‘007’ number plate on her Audi A8 at a time when
speculations were circulating that the US were spying on her.
