Prime Video launched Ten Little Mistresses, on Tuesday, February 7, in a blue carpet gala premiere ahead of its February 15 streaming.
The streaming giant will switch on its first Filipino Amazon Original movie in over 240 countries and territories.
The murder-mystery comedy film stars Eugene Domingo, Christian Bables, Pokwang, Arci Muñoz, Carmi Martin, Agot Isidro, Kris Bernal, Sharlene San Pedro, Adrianna So, Kate Alejandrino, Iana Bernardez, Donna Cariaga, and John Arcilla, with the special participation of Cherry Pie Picache.
Locally known as Sampung Mga Kerida, Ten Little Mistresses tells a tale of Filipino billionaire Valentin Esposo (Arcilla) and his ten mistresses. They fight it out tooth and nail to become his legal wife. But when Valentin turns up dead, all ten women end up as prime suspects. Now they must race to prove their innocence and unmask the real killer before the police find out.
The Idea First Company’s Jun Robles Lana (director) and Perci Intalan (producer) are the duo behind blockbuster and critically-acclaimed movies such as Big Night, Panti Sisters, Born Beautiful, Die Beautiful, Ang Dalawang Mrs. Reyes, Bwakaw, Barber’s Tales, and Kalel 15.
Director Jun Robles Lana was ecstatic that this could be the first Filipino film to reach a global audience through the streaming service. “I’ve always waited for the chance to do a murder mystery film. And with Prime Video, everything fell into place so perfectly,” said Lana. “We had so much fun even though we worked long hours with a dozen cast members. We just want to make the audience laugh; to show even non-Filipinos that our comedy is universal.”
“When we pitched this to Prime Video in L.A. (California), we realized how massive the global audience could be for our film. But it’s still surreal now, knowing that we’ll be in 240 countries and territories. We’re just grateful that we give justice to the hard work of every world-class Filipino artist involved in the film,” shared Intalan.
