1. We're ready for a Crazy Rich Asians sequel!  

The film has opened better than any other comedy this year and any rom-com since 2015! While Warner Brothers hasn't officially greenlighted the second movie, it's "moving forward on development." Jon M. Chu is ready to take the director's chair again, after the film's box-office success. Original producers and screenwriters are also all set to work on the second book of Kevin Kwan's trilogy, China Rich Girlfriend. (The Hollywood Reporter)

After his jam-packed concert in Manila on August 23, we've got more content coming from the Grammy winner. Chance The Rapper will be playing a pizza delivery werewolf named Dax Lycanderis in a horror comedy film called Slice.  The film will tell the story of a pizza joint that's built right on top of (wait for it) the Gates of Hell. Slice doesn't have an official release date yet, but it's expected to come out by the end of the year! (The Guardian)

3. Paramore is back in Manila

Ain't it fun! The band, composed of Hayley Williams, Taylor York, and Zac Farro, have arrived for their Mall of Asia Arena concert today, August 23! Paramore was supposed to perform in the Philippines in February 2018, but they had to postpone their concert due to Hayley's respiratory condition.
