The second chapter of  Darryl Yap's Maid in Malacanang (MiM), brought to us by Viva Films and Vincentiments, is soon to be shown most probably this February or anytime early 2023, but before that they are scheduling the release of the official Martyr or Murderer (MoM) movie trailer primer this 12noon of February 3 as announced by Darryl Yap on his Facebook page earlier today.

But the news gets even more interesting because just a few days after, MiM, the very controversial and highest grossing Filipino movie in the last three years is soon to be shown online on February 8 via Viva Prime, the wholesale and for family streaming platform of Viva Entertainment. The movie trailer primer will be released online on February 3, while the full trailer will be on February 9.

"Inuunti-unti ang pagkabog sa ating mga damdamin ha..para mas lalo siguro tayong ma-excite sa mga malalang pasabog na inihanda ni Direk"

Viva Prime will feature local content, including new and classic titles, Hollywood, Asian and Korean blockbusters, series, concerts, Livestream, documentaries and more. The price for subscription is only P49 a month and P99 ad-free.

It is no surprise that the opening film of the platform is Darryl Yap's MiM since it is currently Viva's very successful movie garnering a huge interest not only here in the Philippines but also abroad especially among the Filipino communities living and working there. Also take note that MiM was accused of spreading historical revisionism due to the sensational scenes shown from the release of its trailer...and what were also depicted on the actual movie.

Viva Prime, to serve as a platform for Viva stars as well as emerging artists, is child-friendly and more family-oriented compared to Viva's already two year old and successful VivaMax which is also a livestreaming channel but also shows mature or adult-oriented films starring the likes of AJ Raval. But Viva Prime will also deliver "edgy content" for the general audience so that it could also compete with global streaming platforms like Netflix. 

In terms of "edgy", MiM is without any doubt very edgy as its content has been touted as going against historical facts, and more aligned closer to fiction since many of the scenes in the movie are supposedly taken from the stories of the Marcos family helpers and "maids" who worked in Malacanang and witnessed the last hours of the Marcoses before they left, or were forced to leave, the country to escape the wrath of the Filipino people that were about to enter the Malacanang palace during the People Power movement on EDSA. Such stories were never part of what's officially written in historical records or documents...or what others would say as "walang resibo" meaning they could not be verified or found on any news documenting the events during those years when the Marcoses abruptly had to say their farewells to the country.

However, Darryl Yap claims that their movie, especially MoM, is very truthful: "We have the ugly truth" as heard from his interview, and "#MartyrorMurderer carries the Beauty of the Ugliest Truth" when he posted a picture of former First Lady Imelda Romualdez Marcos together with Benigno "Ninoy" Aquino, as well as it's counterpart photo of a scene showing Ruffa Gutierrez and Isko Mkoreno (portraying the roles of Imelda and Ninoy in MoM), that he additionally captioned as IMELDA and NINOY * New York 1983.

Thus, many are talking about MiM and MoM:

"The truth will always prevail, it may take days, months or years, but it will, so hold your seatbelts." says one comment expressing an opinion that the real truth is actually depicted in the movie instead of what we were told or made to believe throughout the past years when the Marcos family were no longer in power.

"I think February 25 ito ipapalabas para sakto sa People Power Anniversary" says another comment guessing on the possible show date of MoM.

"Hindi pwedeng ilabas ng February 25. Either February 22 or March 1 ang showing." replied another.

Incidentally, there was even a comment before if Darryl will be doing more than just a trilogy since he playfully used MiM, MoM, and MaM (Mabuhay Aloha Mabuhay) for his three movies so why stop there, why not complete all the remaining vowels MuM, and MeM....making it five instead of just three. 

If the three movies in this trilogy will continue to break records and become blockbusters too, for sure they will not think twice in making more. The question is "Will there be more controversial stories to be revealed that will continue to capture the interest of the many Marites of the Philippines?"

With Senator Imee Marcos being also a producer of the movies, and the fact that MiM relayed that she is the one being referred to as the "Maid in Malacanang" and not the actual maids, there has been the looming suspect that these movies are nothing more but attempts "to deodorize the stinking reputation" of the Marcoses, but if ever that is true, Darryl Yap is definitely brilliant on how he creatively makes his movies very much-talked about and watched.
