Critical Moment Awaits Joel Lamangan Film On Martial Law!

MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – He fulfilled his promise of making a new film on the Marcos Martial Law as a direct response to Darryl Yap’s highly successful movie, “Maid In Malacañang.”

Director Joel Lamangan, more popularly known for his “bomba” films (sex flicks), has come up with a new film, “Oras De Peligro” which chronicles the experiences of a poor urban family in the final days of the Marcos dictatorship.

Lamangan’s film opens on March 1, 2023, coinciding with the opening of Yap’s “Martyr or Murderer” about the late Senator Benigno “Ninoy” Aquino, Jr.

All eyes are on the box office receipts, following the dismal showing of yet another Marcos film, “Ako Si Ninoy” by Director Vince Tañada.

Will “Peligro” suffer the same fate as AsN?

More importantly, will the opening and first few days of the Lamangan movie be literally the critical moment in the Director’s long and tired career?
