JaDine magic in a new summer movie
Following their top-rating and massively successful primetime series On The Wings Of Love, James Reid and Nadine Lustre are back in a highly anticipated project, this time on the big screen, this summer,.
Viva Films released the official movie poster of the upcoming movie on March 26, then the teaser trailer on March 28. It instantly caught fire and became a hot topic on social media.
Fans thought that the movie the couple is starring would be the sequel to Talk Back and You’re Dead (2014), which earned almost P100 million at the tills, because last year, Nadine confirmed that they are already working on it.
Since the recent announcement that James and Nadine are indeed making good music together, Never Talk to a Gangster, the working title of the said movie, would need to take the backseat. The couple needs a more romantic flick to delight the fans that religiously followed their romance on and off cam.
Entitled This Time, the summer romantic flick tells the love story of Coby (James Reid) and Ava (Nadine Lustre) who are entangled in a long distance relationship - they only see each other during the summer. The title is inspired by Freestyle’s classic hit song with the same title.
The movie, which marks JaDine’s much-awaited comeback to the big screen after starring in the sleeper hit movie Diary ng Panget in 2014, promises a more grown up attraction between two people. It’s the same theme that the couple has been portraying since they became one of the hottest pairs in local Tinsel town.
The well-loved couple that started as a love team in the entertainment industry and turned real life sweethearts had to shoot daily before embarking on a world tour concert. They will be back to finish the film in time for its commercial release.
This Time, helmed by Nuel Naval, also stars Yam Concepcion, Bret Jackson, Donnalyn Bartolome, Issa Pressman, Candy Pangilinan, John Lapus, Al Tantay, Nova Villa, and Freddie Webb. It will be released on May 4 or days before James and Nadine celebrate their third month of being an official couple on May 11.
