    We find the world's most notorious crime-fighting turtles having to defeat Shredder once again as he joins forces with Baxter Stockman, a mad scientist who plans to use a serum to take over the world. On top of that, Krang shows up and poses to be an even greater threat. The movie premeired in the Philippine last week and is still showing in theaters (as of writing). 

    Party ideas: The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles come with a specific color palette--green. Use red, orange, blue and purple as an accent representing each of the turtles. Have eye  masks ready in all the colors (so kids can pick out their favorite). And, most importantly: don't forget the pizza.

    We’ve all waited 12 years, and now the anticipated sequel to Disney Pixar’s Finding Dory is just days away! The movie, premiering in the Philippines this June 15, is set six months after Nemo finally got reunited with his dad with Dory's help. Now, it's Dory who needs to go on a journey to find her family.

    Party ideas: It’s a no-brainer that a Finding Dory kids’ party will also be underwater-themed. You can use beach, starfish, sun, octopus, coral and seaweed as elements for your party. Pick colors in Dory-blue and Nemo-orange to really reinforce your Finding Dory theme. For extra fun, make it a swimming party!

    From the humans behind Despicable Me comes a film pet-owners shouldn't miss, The Secret Life of Pets. The film follows a dog named Max and his owner's new pet Duke as they stop a bunny name Snowball from wrecking havoc with his army of abandoned pets. Following Max's scent is a ragtag group of pets assembled by his fellow-dog neighbor Gidget. The movie premiers in the Philippines on Aug. 24.

    Party ideas: Plan a pet themed party fit for Max and the gang. You can decorate the space with stuffed animals (puppies, kittens, bunnies, hamsters, etc.), DIY some dog- and cat-ear headbands, serve party snacks in pet bowls and bake bone-shaped cookies.
