The great wait for THE GREAT RAID is finally over!
Tuesday, July 26, 2005

FINALLY! We all get to see the much awaited Hollywood version of an infamous Philippine war event!

The release date of the The Great Raid had been changed several times by Miramax and there was even this rumor that the movie will just be going straight to video. Thanks God it was just a rumor!

The Great Raid is a movie inspired by true events and based on two books -- William Breuer's "The Great Raid on Cabanatuan" and Hampton Sides' "Ghost Soldiers".

The movie stars Hollywood actors Benjamin Bratt (Miss Congeniality), Joseph Fiennes (Shakespeare in Love), James Franco (Spiderman), Connie Nielsen (Gladiator), Fil-Am actor, Paolo Montalban, and Philippines very own Cesar Montano, who will be playing Capt. Juan Pajota.

It's a shame that Cesar Montano was not top-billed alongside Bratt & company in the official movie poster (in the trailer itself, you only get to see Montano [grinning] for like 2 seconds -- an amazing 2 seconds for Pinoys everywhere though --). Although, from the movie posters I've seen around Makati & Ortigas, they really made an effort to make out Cesar Montano look like the lead star of the movie (his picture was bigger than that of Bratt's). =)

The film will be shown in the Philippines on August 10 and to the rest of the world beginning August 12.

Here are a few moviestills. Naturally, I got the ones w/ Montano in them (KEEP THE PINOY PRIDE ALIVE!!!).
