News from the Philippines!

Well, the first piece of news is actually not from the Philippines but from America. Well, strictly speaking it's from Andrew Leavold in OZ but it's ABOUT a new exciting American DVD release: THEY CALL HER CLEOPATRA WONG and ONE-ARMED EXECUTIONER are coming out on a spiffy double disc next year!!! Very spiffy indeed!!! Obviously (haha) I have both films already (Cleo Wong on kinda-almost-legit dvd from Global in South Africa, and One-Arm on Greek vhs) but it's gonna be cool with a proper DVD release. Andrew also gave the video company 10 (that's TEN) hours of Bobby Suarez-related interviews to use for extras!! Wonder how much they'll be using!?).

Another piece of VERY exiting news is that the making of VENGEANCE OF CLEOPATRA WONG is getting closer! Yes, astonished 'Pino film fans: Suarez is going to make another sequel to THEY CALL HER CLEOPATRA WONG!! Some of the backing money comes from France and it seems French television is ALSO keen on getting a TV-SERIES made in which Cleo Wong's daughter takes the lead!! My friend, can your heart stand the excitement! I'm absolutely about to burst!!

And, oh, oh, I forgot... VENGEANCE OF CLEO WONG is going to feature not only Cleopatra Wong but ALSO the kid from the two BIONIC BOY films AND the guy from ONE-ARMED EXECUTIONER!!!

Lastly, Andrew himself is also going to the Philippines to make a film entitled THE TALLER THEY COME! LOL. I'm not sure how much of the story and cast is a secret as of yet but lemme just remind you the guy is a big fan of FOR Y'UR HEIGHT ONLY (the TALLER they come, haha). Good luck with all that.

This is the Pakistani poster for the original THE BIONIC BOY film (unfortunately the scan is all I've got. So many posters, so little wall space).
[click the scan to see the full poster]


  1. I haven't seen any of the movies, so this comment is based on your last comment on poster. Yes! I have so many poster, but so little wallspace. When I get my very first house I will have my own Movie room, and It will be full of posters, in fat gold frames, might I add.

    Btw, would love to see those movies you mentioned.

    Btw: the Sequel: Do you have a webpage with pictures of your posters? Would love to see them.

  2. Haha, how many web pages do you think I have! (too many!!) No, I don't have a site with my posters, I guess I should have, LOL. Maybe some day. I just got a digital camera so I guess it's possible.

    "In fat gold frames"; cool!

  3. Haha. I was thinking about flickr, or some sort of storage webpage. Hehe. I think I'll start one when I get home. My room is a mess, all my movies in boxes, and all kinds of shit. And I like to keep it organized.

    Yeah, the only bad thing is, they cost 300-400 bucks a piece.

  4. Your room is a mess? My HOUSE is a mess. I can't see the walls. All I see is long tunnels of video tapes, and once in a while there's a naked light bulb hanging down. No furniture, no pictures, nothing! Just one chair and a TV set... and these endless tunnels of video tapes. I don't even know where they lead, I think there was a little dog that ran into one of them once and never came back. Or maybe it was a dwarf. I don't even know where the front door is anymore.

  5. Haha. I don't have a house yet, but when I get one, it will probably take some time to get everything in order.

    A dwarf? Not the sinful dwarf, I hope?

    I added some pictures of my posters today. Check out the link on my blog.

  6. I might have exaggerated a wee bit there, LOL. I don't actually live in a house but a flat. And maybe it wasn't a dwarf.
    Okay, I'll check 'em out.
