“EDGE OF TOMORROW” DIRECTOR REUNITES WITH TOM CRUISE FOR “AMERICAN MADE”


Director Doug Liman reunites with his Edge of Tomorrow star, Tom Cruise, in Universal Pictures' American Made, based on the outrageous (and real) exploits of a hustler and pilot unexpectedly recruited by the CIA to run one of the biggest covert operations in U.S. History.

Liman, who refers to the film as “a fun lie based on a true story,” offers that he has long appreciated stories of improbable heroes working against the system. “Barry Seal, our lead character, took America for an unbelievable ride,” reveals the filmmaker. “Interpreting his story has the makings for an entertaining film that is equal parts satire, suspense and comedy—and always surprising.”

More Filipinos are switching to Online Shopping


A recent Google and Temasek study predicts Filipino online shoppers to grow to 42 million by 2025, spending $19 billion (₱918 billion) and a big contributor to this growth is the rise of smartphone users. Today, 61% of Filipino adults own a smartphone and use their devices to communicate, work, and shop wherever they are, creating more productive days, foregoing Manila traffic, and skipping crowded malls altogether.

Shopee, the leading eCommerce platform in Southeast Asia and Taiwan, has leveraged this mobile trend to great success, converting shoppers from buying offline to online by creating a convenient platform that combines the authenticity of a marketplace with payment and logistical support. Shopee has amassed over 4 million downloads in the Philippines and has virtually replicated the traditional shopping experience online, like providing a live chat feature that allows buyers and sellers to communicate directly -- even allowing the very Filipino tradition of “tawad” on the app -- while providing multiple forms of payment including the popular Cash on Delivery option.
