Nearly one month from its Guam premiere, the box office take of 3pol Trobol: Huli Ka Balbon! is still going strong as TFC announces its extended screening in Tango Cinemas.
The action-comedy-romance stars Coco Martin whose long-running primetime police drama, Ang Probinsyano, proves him as one of ABS-CBN’s most bankable actors. In both Ang Probinsyano and 3pol Trobol, not only did Martin demonstrated his knack in acting, he likewise worked behind the scenes as creative consultant and as director under his real name, Rodel Nacianceno.
In 3pol Trobol: Huli Ka Balbon!, Martin plays Apollo “Pol” Balbon, an aide de camp blamed for the demise of his superior and Executive Director of the National Defense Agency. In order to earn the trust of the slain director’s daughter and ultimately get to the bottom of the case, he transforms into ‘Paloma’— a vixen who wouldn’t mind punching and kicking her way to justice. The all-star cast includes heartthrob Sam Milby, comedienne Ai-Ai de las Alas, singer-actress Jennylyn Mercado, as well as premium actors led by Edu Manzano, Tirso Cruz II, and Rowell Santiago.
TFC viewership in Guam is one of the highest in Asia Pacific. Raymund Romero, the ABS-CBN Global Regional Marketing Head for Asia Pacific, believes this translates to the successful run of 3pol Trobol in the local cinema. “Data shows the direct correlation between the high number of TFC subscribers and the success of Philippine theatrical screenings in Guam. As we remain to be of service to our kapamilyas longing for a sense of home, ABS-CBN and TFC shall continue to produce and distribute top-quality content for Filipinos in Guam and around the world,” he says.
