WATCH: Bea Alonzo, Gerald Anderson in 'How to Be Yours' teaser trailer
MANILA, Philippines – The teaser trailer for Bea Alonzo and Gerald Anderson's first movie How To Be Yours was released Wednesday, July 6.
In the movie Niño (Gerald), a sales agent, hangs out with his best friend one night in Chinatown. In the midst of the festivities, he sees Anj (Bea), a cook whose ambition is to work in a high-end restaurant, and they later meet again in a club.
The YouTube caption reads: "When love changes their goals, will their relationship survive the struggles? What if the reasons that made them fall in love are not the same reasons for them to go on anymore?"
Aside from being their first movie together, Gerald and Bea were previously linked to each other.
In an interview last April, Gerald said that he has always wanted to work with Bea.
"First time namin magsasama ni Bea which makes everything more exciting kasi you know, pangarap ko iyon. Pangarap ko pa lang iyon nung bata ako nung pinapanood ko siya," Gerald said.
(It's the first time that Bea and I will work together, which makes everything more exciting because this is my dream. This has been my dream since I was young, when I was just watching her.)
"Pero sobrang totoo iyon. Napapanood ko siya sa TV. And you can't imagine how I feel. This is surreal moment in my life na makakasama ko siya."
(But it's really true. I used to watch her on TV. And you can't imagine how I feel. This is a surreal moment in my life to be paired up with her.)
The movie is directed by Dan Villegas, who also directed Gerald in this year's Always Be My Maybe with Arci Muñoz. Gerald and Dan will also work together in the upcoming series, Because You Love Me.
A playdate for How To Be Yours has yet to be announced. – Rappler.com
