Much-awaited and highly-anticipated launching movie of the phenomenal love team ofAlden Richards and Maine Mendoza, Imagine You & Me, will finally hit the screens on July 13.
The creative team tediously worked on the project from conceptualization to film production and the sensational love team had to shoot a big part of the movie in the picturesque Como and Verona in Italy.
Its teaser, followed by its full trailer shown in Eat Bulaga, displayed so much love, romance and bittersweet moments in each and every scene. In addition, today’s hottest love team was beautifully photographed and the movie viewers can’t help but feel the real emotions Alden and Maine have for each other.
From the simple young lady from Santa Maria, Bulacan, Maine auditioned in Eat Bulaga armed with nothing but her talent in the dubsmash department.
She rose to popularity by playing the character of Yaya Dub (Divina Ursula Bokbokova Smash), Lola Nidora’s (Wally Bayola) devoted nanny in the noontime show’s Kalyeserye.
Alden was already part of the EB Dabarkads when Maine joined the noontime show. He was an ordinary host a year ago until his and Maine’s paths crossed in an episode of the now-famous Kalyeserye.
The rest, as they say, is AlDub history, a phenomenal success the world over.
The AlDub tandem also broke the Twitter record worldwide registering the highest 42 plus million tweets during its “Tamang Panahon” episode on Oct. 24, 2015 at the Philippine Arena. The special episode also posted another record in terms of attendance, proceeds of which were used to finance AlDub libraries.
The country’s biggest advertisers banked on the AlDub phenomenon as well. Companies, one after the other, took turns at getting the multi-media love team’s service for product endorsements.
From the small screen, Alden and Maine made their big screen debut via the Metro Manila Film Festival 2015 movie, My Bebe Love which headlined the comic pair of Vic Sotto and Ai Ai de las Alas. Expectedly, the said MMFF entry generated the highest opening day gross in the annual movie fest history and earned for Maine her first best supporting actress award.
Now the sensational pair is undoubtedly ripe for a launching movie. And so, APT Entertainment, GMA Films and M-Zet Television, Inc. have joined forces to bankroll Imagine You & Me under the direction of Mike Tuviera.
In the film, Alden is Andrew, a heartbroken guy based in Italy. Maine, meanwhile, is Gara, a hopeless romantic overseas foreign worker in search for her Romeo to be her forever Mr. Right. It was not smooth sailing though, when Gara found her true love.
Andrew and Gara belong to different worlds and have opposing views on love. In short, they are incompatible.
Is there a chance for the two people like Andrew and Gara to fall in love with each other?
Feel the electrifying chemistry between Alden and Maine in Imagine You & Me. Reminisce, fall in love all over again and share the pain a young romance brings while watching the film.
“It’s worth the wait,” direk Mike promises.
Fans will definitely admire the AlDub love team even more after watching Imagine You & Me. And while Alden, and Maine’s showbiz life may experience ups and downs, the Dubsmash Queen assures everyone that her and Pambansang Bae’s friendship is getting stronger by the day.
As a bonus, Maine wrote and sang the movie’s theme song, solo and in a duet with Alden.
Needless to say, IYM is Alden and Maine’s gift for their followers and supporters in celebration of their first year as loveteam this July.
