The iconic movie of “Da King” Fernando Poe, Jr. (FPG) and actress Judy Ann Santos will be on the big screen again this August — this time, for free.
On Instagram, Santos announced that there will be a free screening of the restored version of film Isusumbong Kita Sa Tatay Ko at the SM North EDSA (The Block) Cinema 1 on August 17.
“Excited ako para dito!!! Isa sa mga artistang hindi ko naisip na pwede kong makasama at maging tatay tatayan.. sayang hindi ka na naexperience makatrabaho ng mga kabataan ngayon.. marami sana silang matututunan sa nagiisang FPJ.. miss kita tay.. #isusumbongkitasatatayko #restored,” she captioned the announcement photo that she shared.
[I’m excited for this! He’s one of the actors whom I never thought I would be able to work with and who would be like a father to me. It’s sad that young actors did not get the chance to experience working with you. They could have learned so many things from the one and only FPJ. I miss you, Tay.]
The gates of the cinema will be opened at 6 p.m it was disclosed.
Isusumbong Kita Sa Tatay Ko is a 1999 Filipino action-comedy film directed by Boots Plata. The film is about “Badong” (FPJ), who has been raising his only child, Joey, ever since his wife died. Consequently, Joey grows up like her father. She is boyish and acts like a man. One day, Badong’s childhood friend, Beth (Aileen Damiles), visited their place and they became close. Joey, however, felt that Beth is trying to replace her late mother and that Beth is destroying her relationship with her father.
The film has earned around P10 million on the first day of its release. By the end-run, the film earned more than P100 million, becoming the first Philippine-produced film to have exceeded the 100 million-mark in box office gross.
