Director Topel Lee knows that fact well and he looks to be taking great advantage of it with his upcoming horror picture Tumbok.While the plot appears standard enough - it revolves around a young married couple who move in to a haunted building - these things are all about the director's skill in execution and Lee is skilled, indeed. Long considered one of the most purely talented directors in the Philippines Lee has been, as often as not, limited by the conditions both budgetary and otherwise forced upon him by the local studio system but talent is talent and he's obviously got it. The first trailer for this is...

Topel Lee’s Wapakman Brings Super-Heroics To The Philipines!

Freshly announced as part of the lineup for the 2010 Metro Manila Film Festival, Topel Lee looks to bring the latest Filipino superhero to the screen with his Wapakman.  With the film still relatively early in production - Metro Manila basically screens every Filipino film of note for the given year - details are still sketchy beyond the fact that Manny Pacquiao stars as a normal man who develops super powers and WWE star Dave Batista is in the cast, I presume as the villain.  Our own Joey Fernandez has been singing Topel Lee’s praises in these pages for years now and it’s not hard to see why based on the short teaser that has just been released.  Simple concept, stellar execution.  Very nice.  Find it after the break.

Watch the slow motion beatings in Filipino superhero flick Wapakman

Wapakamn is an upcoming superhero film out of the Phillipines directed by Topel Lee. Billed as an scifi/fantasy/action/comedy, it headlines Phillipino star Manny Pacquiao, and from what we can see in the teaser, looks beautifully shot. It's basically a bunch of people getting hit by an "unseen fist". Wapakman will premier at the Metro Manila Film Festival in December.

Wapakman is the story of a superhero, played by who else but Manny Pacquiao himself. His nemesis is Fil-Am wrestler Batista while Pussycats Dolls’ lead Nicole Scherzinger, who is also half Pinay, is his love interest.
