Bong Revilla is all praises for his Si Agimat at Si Enteng Kabisote co-star Vic Sotto



With Bong Revilla and Vic Sotto'rsquo;s joint effort in Si Agimat At Si Enteng Kabisote, the said movie is expected to be the top-grosser among all the entries in the 2010 Metro Manila Film Festival. But Bong said it'rsquo;s too early to early for talks of revenues since it'rsquo;s not yet even shown in theaters. "Mahirap natin i-claim yun hanggat 'lsquo;di natatapos ang karera. It'rsquo;s just a friendly competition kaya hindi na dapat kinakatakutran pa. Ang importante panoorin lahat ng entries at suportahan natin ang pelikulang Pilipino. Kasi lahat naman magaganda at talagang pinaghirapan."
'nbsp;

But when asked to choose between bagging an award or a box office success, Bong was honest enough to say that it'rsquo;s more important for the moviegoers to feel good about the movie. "Importante sa atin ang box office, yung magustuhan nila ang pelikula. 'lsquo;Yan ay tsamba tsamba lang, dumarating din 'lsquo;yan. Tulad last year madaming hinakot na award ang Panday. Ito naman ibang tema ang pelikula. This is [a combination of] action, comedy, fantasy and romance. Maaaring may pag-asa tayo magka-award but we don'rsquo;t know kung anong award yun."
'nbsp;
Bong further shared that he really enjoyed working with Vic especially because they both have something different to offer in this big project. "Kung anong ine-expect natin sa pelikula ni Vic Sotto at sa pelikula ni Bong Revilla, pinagsama sa unang pagkakataon." What'rsquo;s good about their team-up is that there'rsquo;s no billing issue or division of exposure between them.'nbsp; "Hindi namin iniisip yun. Basta kung anong kinakailangan sa eksena, kapag action sa akin, kapag comedy at punchline sa kanya. Pero bumibitaw din ako ng one-liner dito dahil nag-comedy din naman ako sa movie in the past. So tulungan kami," he explained.
'nbsp;
They didn'rsquo;t have a hard time adjusting to each other'rsquo;s quirks because they share the same mass appeal and passion for their craft. Perhaps this is the reason why their team-up proved to be really effective. "Actually kami ni Vic halos pareho lang e. Pareho kaming mapagmahal'hellip;mapagmahal sa kapwa. Ha-ha-ha! Pagdating sa trabaho, mahirap naman magbuhat ng bangko, pero ang masasabi ko kay Vic he'rsquo;s very professional. Sabi ko nga palagi ako nauunahan sa set dahil sa dami ng trabaho ko. Naunahan ko man siya nung minsan, 30 seconds ahead lang ako," he cheerfully related.
'nbsp;
How will their famous fictional characters meet in Si Agimat at Si Enteng Kabisote? "Papasok si Agimat sa mundo ni Enteng Kabisote tapos mapupunta din si Enteng sa mundo ni Agimat So tatlong mundo ang papasukan dito including yung mundo ng mga tao. Ganon ang attack ng pelikula. Tapos ang pinakasorpresa natin, may short film ng Panday na dito lang ipapakita. Parang teaser siya dun sa kung anong mangyayari for Panday part two. Beautiful, nakakakilabot yung effect. You'rsquo;ll be proud of i
