Streaming giant Netflix is back with a brand new slate of 15 Filipino films coming on to the service starting this August, including Netflix Original Love The Way U Lie.
Staying true to their commitment to bring more Filipino content to the service, Netflix is announcing new films from Viva Communications, Regal Films, TBA Studios, The IdeaFirst Company, and CleverMinds. This exciting new lineup cuts across multiple genres has something for everyone to enjoy.
"It is an honor having our film be included as a Netflix Original and be shown across Asia. It is a huge opportunity not just for me but also for every Filipino filmmaker to continue creating quality films that can be shown to the world and that every Filipino can be proud of,” RC Delos Reyes, director of Love The Way U Lie said.
"Very few films get to become a Netflix Original, and we at Viva and 1017 are very proud that Love The Way U Lie is part of the elite Originals. This film is a testament to Filipino creativity and we can't wait for Asia to enjoy it,” said Vincent Del Rosario, President of Viva Communications, Inc.
“With Netflix releasing Write About Love’ soon, it’s good news for us at TBA Studios that this movie will be made available on one of the most popular and prestigious online platforms,” said Crisanto Aquino, director of Write About Love.
These films will add to the line up of other wildly popular Filipino movies that have come to Netflix including Through Night and Day and Ang Pangarap Kong Holdup, both of which consistently appeared in the Philippine’s Top 10 row on the service.
“We would like to extend our warmest thank you to Netflix for giving our films, Through Night and Day and Ang Pangarap Kong Holdap, a platform where our fellow Filipinos can watch conveniently at the comfort of their homes during these unprecedented times,” said Erwin Blanco, CEO of Mavx Productions.
