Live Action THE LITTLE MERMAID Opens in Philippine Cinemas Starting August 8

The recent trend in Hollywood is to remake old fairy-tale classics into live-action and the latest independent remake coming out this year is “The Little Mermaid”. The film, as its namesake implies, is inspired by Hans Christian Andersen’s novel of the same name. The film stars British actress Poppy Drayton, William Moseley, Loreto Peralta, Armando Gutierrez and Shirley MacLaine. First published in 1837 about a mermaid’s sacrifice for love, the latest adaptation of “The Little Mermaid” is a brand new take on Anderson’s timeless tale happening in more recent times. Read more about the film and watch the trailer below:

“The Little Mermaid” unfolds with an old grandmother telling her two granddaughters the story of a fascinating beautiful mermaid. William Moseley stars as a reporter who started following a story about a mermaid and a magical healing water. Together with his sick niece, they travel to a small town in Mississippi to uncover a legend. There, they go to a circus and encounter a beautiful mermaid trapped in a glass tank. They are further amazed when the mermaid appears before them as a young woman with legs. The duo soon learns of a prophecy about a little girl born on land, blessed with the heart of a mermaid. With this prophecy come to life in Elle, they are further entangled in a sinister plot of a wizard who wishes to keep the mermaid's soul and convert it to power.
