Paolo Contis’s New Movie a Flop, Says Director

Paolo Contis’s new movie is allegedly a flop

PAOLO CONTIS – The movie led by the Kapuso actor and television host titled “Fuchsia Libre” is allegedly a flop.

Ronaldo Carballo, a movie director, disclosed that two recently released Filipino films failed to perform well. In a Facebook post, Carballo discussed the disappointing ticket sales of “Isang Gabi,” featuring Coleen Garcia and Diego Loyzaga, and “Fuchsia Libre,” led by Paolo Contis and John Arcilla.

The director expressed his frustration over the lack of support for local films. According to him, people nowadays prefer watching films on online streaming platforms.

“Wala na talaga sa formula yan. Kahit sinong artista ihain mo, ayaw ng tao. Ayaw na talaga ng mga tao manood ng local film sa sinehan,” he said. “Ang mahal talaga ng panonood ng sine, kumpara sa ang mura naman ng Subscription ng Netflix at pwede pang ipasa sa iba ang Subscription ng libre,” he added.

He suggested that it would be better for producers to collaborate with online streaming platforms. “Kaya the best thing talaga ay i-produced ang Pelikula with Netflix quality at ibenta diretso sa Netflix, upang hindi naman laging luhaan ang Producer na walang bumabalik sa ipinuhunan,” he stated.

Netizens echoed the sentiment that Filipino films are currently falling short. Some criticized the lack of innovation in titles and storylines, noting similarities to foreign films and sometimes subpar production quality. Others emphasized the importance for filmmakers to adapt to consumer preferences, pointing out the growing popularity of subscription-based services over traditional cinema experiences. Both comments highlight the need for the Philippine film industry to evolve to meet contemporary audience expectations.

As of press time, Paolo Contis has yet to issue any reaction to the comments of the renowned movie director. To recall, aside from his film project, his latest television project is via “Tahanang Pinakamasaya” where he served as one of the main hosts.
