TFC and Star Cinema score a triple milestone as they bring together John Lloyd Cruz and Jennylyn MercadoÂ for the first time in â€œJust The Three Of Us,â€ an unlikely love story, screening in cinemas worldwide via [email protected] on the same week of its Philippine release.
For the first time, Star Cinema, brings three box office royalties in one movieÂ Blockbuster Director Cathy Garcia-Molina, John Lloyd and Jennylyn in this modern day romantic comedy (romcom).
Cathy Garcia Molina, is the director behind the highly successful movie hits such as the iconic â€œOne More Chance” and sequel â€œA Second Chance,â€ also starring John Lloyd and perennial love team Bea Alonzo.
Paanyaya ni direk Cathy,â€œIniimbitahin po namin kayong i-try ang bagong putahe na ito na ino-offer namin sa inyo.Â We have made a lot of rom coms before but I think this one is different. There is something more than just rom com in this movie. I hope you watch it so you know what weâ€™re talking about.â€
John Lloyd on the otherhand is currently the title-holder of the Guillermo Mendoza Memorial Foundation Phenomenal Star for 2015 because of the record-breaking results of his movie â€œA Second Chance.â€Â He is also one of his generationâ€™s most acclaimed actors.
While this is the nth time Direk Cathy and John Lloyd are collaborating, it is fellow box office icon Jennylynâ€™s first movie under Star Cinema.
John Lloyd shares: â€œI have been dying to work with Jennylyn.Â Sapanahonngayon, posiblengmangyariiyonghindi kayo galingsaiisangistasyonperomerong opportunity para magkatrabaho kayo.Â Mas magandaiyonhindilang para saartista kung hindi para saindustriya.â€
Jennylyn herself is a box office royalty herself as she has won back-to-back awards at the 2014 MMFF for â€œEnglish Only Pleaseâ€ and â€œWalang Forever,â€ also box office hits.Â She was also hailed for being part of theÂ Breakthrough Box Office Indie Film in the 2015 Box Office Awards.
Jennylyn says she looked forward to working with Direk Cathy, John Lloyd and the team and could not think of any reason not to accept the film. â€œAng ganda ng group, ang galing ng director, ang galing ng movie.Â Ang galing ng actor na si John Lloyd.Â Fan ako ng lahat ng Cathy Garcia Molina at John Lloyd movies. Ito ang tinatawag nilang dream team. Lahat sila maalaga.Â I feel so blessed to be part of this movie,â€ Jennylyn says.
Together, they tell the story of Uno (John Lloyd) and CJ (Mercado) who are complete strangers and opposites thrown into a situation that brings them together, albeit, forcibly.They are both equipped to handle their jobs as airline employees. Uno is an organized pilot who plans his life and can be considered successful. Â However, he only comes home to an empty nest.Â Meanwhile, being a flight stewardess is CJâ€™s dream so while she is a ground crew, she puts her heart to it to go beyond her current job.Â What happens next is not entirely part of Unoâ€™s plans neither of CJâ€™s dreams.
