1 Following the success of Heneral Luna, scriptwriter and producer E.A. Rocha confirms that a General del Pilar movie is now in the works. “We are thanking all the fans who embraced Luna and owned the film. We are keeping our promise. Del Pilar is coming and, of course, it'll be starring Paulo Avelino,” he said. “There's no title yet. We'll begin on the script soon, but it's not gonna be a quickie because we'll spend as much time as [we did in] Heneral Luna,” he added. Can’t wait for this one! (PEP)

4 Can we talk about Marian Rivera looking smokin’ hot on the cover of this month’s Esquire magazine? Slay!
This month, we dedicate our November issue to women, with the strong female protagonist, Marian Rivera gracing the cover. Inside, she talks about the one role she has yet to play: motherhood. Congressman Leni Robredo sits down with writer-director Antoinette Jadaone to talk about hugot films, 10-hour bus rides, and the difficult decision she made with her children. Oliver X.A. Reyes profiles Ombudsman Conchita Carpio Morales, who lion-tamed her way though four years of investigating and prosecuting errant public officials. We round up a bunch of girls (and one guy) to talk about the F word: Feminism. And author of Etiquette for Mistresses, Jullie Yap-Daza, opens up about her own encounter with infidelity, the meaning of sexual death, and the problem with divorce. All this and more, this month on ESQUIRE. Cover photo by Raymund Isaac
