MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – The opening day of Darryl Yap’s new film, ‘Martyr Or Murderer’ was met with a threat to have it pulled out of Philippine theaters nationwide. This, through the filing of a Temporary Restraining Order (TRO).
MoM, as the film is widely known, tells the story of the late Senator Ninoy Aquino. It is the second of Yap’s trilogy that began with ‘Maid In Malacañang and will soon be followed by MAM or ‘Mabuhay Aloha Mabuhay.
MoM fans are not taking the threat sitting down. Instead, they have responded with an SRO — Standing Room Only — in theater after theater.
From all indications, MoM is headed towards a blockbuster status just like its predecessor, MiM.
Will the TRO be trashed by the SRO?
