Ang action-drama film na The Janitor ay humakot ng limang awards sa Cinemalaya Philippine Independent Film Festival noong August.

Ngayong October 8, ipapalabas na ito sa mainstream cinema. Si Richard Gomez ay gumanap bilang former superior ni Dennis Trillo sa police force. Inutusan ni Richard si Dennis na hanapin at iligpit ang mga suspects sa isang heinous crime.

Ang The Janitor ay binigyan ng grade A ng Cinema Evaluation Board. Mas exciting ba kapag sa mainstream na mapapanood ang ginawa niyang indie movie?

Sagot ni Richard Gomez, “Mas exciting kasi, mas marami na ang makakapanood ng movie especially kung ganito kaganda ang pelikula. Napanood nila sa Cinemalaya, nakita nilang maganda ang mga reviews. It’s a good opportunity for them to experience and watch this film.”

Sa Cinemalaya X, nanalo ang The Janitor ng Best Screenplay, Editing and Sound, Best Director para kay Direk Michael “Mike” Tuviera, at Best Supporting Actor para kay Nicco Manalo.

Unang pagkakataon naman na makatrabaho ni Richard si Dennis Trillo sa The Janitor. Karamihan pa ng mga eksena nila ay sila ang magkasama. Sa general press con, inamin ni Dennis na na-intimidate siya kay Richard.

“Ngayon ko lang po sasabihin, talagang noong nalaman ko na magkakatrabaho kami ni Mr. Richard Gomez, kinakabahan ako nung araw na yun,” ani Dennis. “Mula noon pa man, pinapanood ko na at hinangaan ang ginagawa niyang pelikula. Para makatrabaho siya sa isang proyekto na ito, napakalaking honor para sa akin. “Nasabi ko na dati na noong una ko siyang makita, isa siya sa mga artista na pag nakita mo, maii-starstruck ka talaga sa physique niya. Adonis talaga! “Kahit sinong lalaki manliliit pag nakita siya. Napakalaki pa niyang tao. Sobrang saya talaga na makatrabaho siya.”

Para kay Richard, kamusta naman ang experience? “Well, masarap ka-trabaho si Dennis dahil number one, mabait siya. He’s always there on the set. Kung ano ang demands ng director, binibigay niya. Kung ano ang demands ng character niya, ginagampanan niya. “It’s really nice to work with Dennis, hopefully in the future, makatrabaho ko siya ulit.”
