This weekend, Easter Sunday debuted for the first time to the public but the red carpet premiere at the TCL Chinese Theater brought out some of your favorite Filipino creatives in entertainment. Check out who showed up and came out to this historical premiere for Jo Koy 's first major theater release.
The feel good comedy hits home with many Filipino families although some of its portrayal of life in the States is heightened for comedic purposes. In this love letter to the Filipino-American community, stand-up comedy sensation Jo Koy stars as a man returning home for an Easter celebration with his riotous, bickering, eating, drinking, laughing, and loving family.
Friends and family showed their support of the film especially those known in the Filipino community. Members of the Jabbawockeez came out to celebrate like Rynan Paguio, Joe Larot, Phi Nguyen but also professional ballroom dancer, Cheryl Burke. Others who came to be part of the historic moment are Timothy Granaderos, Anna Maria Perez de Tagle Kline, Patrick Starr, Paris Berelc, Ginger Gonzaga, Siena Agudong, and The Filharmonic among many more. The movie is about family and although there might not always be a blood relation, Filipinos always support each other.
Make sure to catch Easter Sunday now playing.
