The Jeffrey Jeturian-directed film earned unanimous grade of “A” from the Cinema Evalution Board (CEB). Part of Star Cinema’s 20th anniversary in the movie industry, “Ekstra” also features Ruby, Tart Carlos of “Be Careful With My Heart,” Cherie Gil, Pilar Pilapil, Nico Antonio, Tom Rodriguez, Direk Marlon Rivera, Vince de Jesus and many more. Also part of Vilma’s milestone movie is the special participation of Richard Yap, Marian Rivera, and Piolo Pascual.
