Vhong Navarro is confident that Bulong will become a hit


Vhong Navarro admitted that doing Bulong is really a challenge. "Mahirap kasi gusto namin na 'lsquo;pag nagpapatawa ka na, andun pa rin 'lsquo;yung takot nila (audience), hindi mawawala 'lsquo;yon, hindi bibitaw kasi para ma-prove namin na pwede palang pagsamahin ang horror at comedy," he explained. Bulong is also Star Cinema'rsquo;s opening movie for 2011.

The Showtime host was asked if he feels pressured about what the movie'rsquo;s outcome would be at the box office since Star Cinema'rsquo;s previous film, Dalaw, was a top grosser. "Hindi naman. Kasi 'lsquo;yung Dalaw kasi iba naman ang konsepto ang ginawa ng Star Cinema. Hindi mo naman sila pagkukumpara kasi magkaiba sila."'nbsp; He continued that he would only feel threatened if Dalaw was in the same genre. "Ang mahirap niyan kung ang Dalaw ay horror comedy, 'lsquo;yun! Pwede mong makumpara 'lsquo;yun."

Vhong also added that people have sent him good feedback when they saw the trailer of Bulong. "Alam mo kasi natutuwa ako 'lsquo;pag nakakarinig ako ng nanood sila ng Tanging Ina, RPG Metanoia, Dalaw, kasi nakadugtong siya sa trailer; andaming nagti-text sa akin and nag-enjoy sila sa trailer. 'lsquo;Yung comment sa Facebook, sa Twitter, 'lsquo;Ano ba 'lsquo;to? Nakakabaliw! Nakakatakot tapos biglang matatawa ka sa dulo.'rsquo; Ang sarap kasi parang excited na sila sa storya ng Bulong. Para sa amin sana hindi namin mapahiya ang mga taong nage-expect," he said.

Bulong, which also stars Angelica Panganiban and Bangs Garcia, will open in theaters on February 2.
