Cathy Garcia Molina has apprehensions about being called the Box Office Director


Director Cathy Garcia Molina is expected to come up with another blockbuster with her latest movie, the John Lloyd Cruz-Toni Gonzaga romantic comedy entitled My Amnesia Girl. Direk Cathy also helmed the past box office hits One More Chance, A Very Special Love, and You Changed My Life, all produced by Star Cinema and all starring John Lloyd. The movie and TV director has been named Film Director of the Year for three consecutive years by the Box Office Entertainment Awards.

During the press conference for My Amnesia Girl, Direk Cathy was asked whom between her and director Wenn Deramas she thought deserved the title "Box Office Director" more. Direk Wenn has also helmed blockbuster movies, which includes Ang Tanging Ina, Ang Tanging Ina Ninyong Lahat, and BFF: Best Friends Forever. Direk Cathy seemed a bit embarrassed about the question and answered, "Si Direk Wenn na! Ha ha ha!"

She further explained that she was never particular about titles. "Ever since talaga allergic ako sa mga ganyang tawag kasi ayokong matawag na mayabang. Maraming salamat sa tawag na 'lsquo;yun pero kung sa iba ibibigay, walang problema sa akin. Ang gusto ko lang ay magtrabaho nang mahusay."

Direk Cathy said she is just like any other filmmaker who always wants to offer something new to the audience. That'rsquo;s why she is very much excited with My Amnesia Girl because this is the first onscreen pairing of John Lloyd and Toni. "Parang there'rsquo;s really nothing more than the first team-up of Toni who is a good actress in terms of comedy and John Lloyd as a great actor. Sila na mismo ang strength ng movie. Just them being together is the best selling point of the movie."

She also likened Toni'rsquo;s chemistry with John Lloyd to that of the actor'rsquo;s past onscreen rapport with Bea Alonzo and Sarah Geronimo. Direk Cathy explained, "I always believe na bawat tao iba iba. So bawat pair ay iba iba ang kayang ibigay. John Lloyd and Bea (One More Chance, Miss You Like Crazy) ay ibang mga movies ang ginagawa. 'lsquo;Yung John Lloyd-Sarah (A Very Special Love, You Changed My Life) ang medyo hawig dito sa John Lloyd-Toni, but still cannot be compared. Bata pa si Sarah at boy-meets-girl ang kwento so ibang chemistry 'lsquo;yung hiningi ng kwento nila. Itong My Amnesia Girl mas mature kasi mag-ex na sila sa story, so marami nang nakaraan."
