The highly anticipated and much talked-about drama, “The Whale” starring Brendan Fraser, is coming to the Philippines this February 22. 

Academy Award-winning director, Darren Aronofsky (“Black Swan”, “Mother!”), helms what critics have touted as Fraser’s “triumphant comeback”.

The actor, who’s known for his leading man roles in films like “Bedazzled”, “George of the Jungle”, and the mega blockbuster franchise “The Mummy”, took over a decade of break before returning to the big screen. 

Fraser’s portrayal of a reclusive English teacher who attempts to reconnect with his estranged teenage daughter has since earned him nominations in the Golden Globe Awards, Screen Actors Guild Awards to name a few, and the top bet to win the Academy Awards for Best Actor.

“The Whale” is based on the acclaimed play by Samuel D. Hunter. It also stars Sadie Sink (“Stranger Things”) and Hong Chau (“The Menu”), who also received a Best Supporting Actress nod from major award-giving bodies for her role in the film. 

The film is produced by A24. This marks the second A24 film that TBA Studios is bringing to the Philippines. Last year, TBA Studios successfully brought to Filipino audiences the Michelle Yeoh multiverse adventure, “Everything Everywhere All At Once”.

In the past year, TBA Studios have distributed international films with Filipinos working in front or behind the camera. This includes “Triangle of Sadness”, “Fanny: The Right To Rock”, “Plan 75”, and “Nocebo”.

“The Whale” is exclusively distributed in the Philippines by TBA Studios. It opens in cinemas nationwide on February 22.
