If, at this point, it hasn't been made clear that Hayop Ka! The Nimfa Dimaano Story, an adult-animation film from the Philippines to stream on Netflix, is meant for mature audiences, then its first official trailer should drive the point home.
Netflix on Monday, October 12, released the first full trailer for the movie, which features the voices of Filipino actors Angelica Panganiban, Sam Milby, and Robin Padilla.
Hayop Ka!, which premieres on October 29, follows titular character Nimfa Dimaano, a "sales kitty" at a department store. She has a boyfriend, Roger (Robin Padilla), who works as a janitor. She later meets Iñigo Villanueva (Sam Milby), a "bourgeoisie business dog" with whom she shares an attraction with.
The 1:47 trailer begins with a warning – that it contains references to sex, sensitive language, and violence, among others. Spring Films and rocketship studio, which produced the movie, earlier released a longer trailer for the film, before it was acquired by Netflix for exclusive distribution.
Ahead of its premiere, Hayop Ka! has already attracted controversy. There have been calls to boycott it because of Robin Padilla, one of its lead voice actors. Padilla, a vocal supporter of President Rodrigo Duterte, has been criticized in the past for his defense of government policies and decisions.
