The full trailer of Imagine You and Me gained tens of thousands of views as soon as it was posted on the Facebook page of Eat Bulaga on June 25.
In just 11 hours, the AlDub movie trailer had been viewed 1.1 million times, with almost 28,000 shares, 59,000 likes and almost 6,000 comments.
Excitement for the movie starring Maine Mendoza and Alden Richards in their first leading roles reached fever pitch on Saturday, as the Kalyeserye cast had their reunion at Eat Bulaga.
The three-minute trailer shows enough scenes to create kilig among AlDub fans and also keep them guessing about the movie’s real plot.
Director Michael Tuviera did a brilliant job in releasing a trailer that does not give too many details about the film. The trailer just whetted the appetite of AlDub fans, making them more eager to watch the film.
The trailer starts with the voice of Gara (Maine) saying, “Naniniwala ako na lahat ng bagay in this world, or in this universe rather, ay nagaganap dahil may dahilan. Everything happens for a reason. At ang dahilan ay upang matagpuan mo ang iyong meant to be”. (I believe that everything in this world, or in this universe rather, happen for a reason. Everything happens for a reason. And the reason is for you to meet your ‘meant to be’.)
The ensuing scenes show Gara getting hold of the bag left by Andrew (Alden) on a bench. When she opens his cellphone, she obviously found him cute, what with his dimples and all. Scenes with Gara and her friends show how they think Andrew can be a possible soulmate for Gara.
The trailer continues with a lot of scenes making fans scream in the studio when it was first shown in Kalyeserye. Like that sofa scene where Andrew fell accidentally on top of Gara;
that bench scene where they are talking with heads so close while they are lying on each other’s shoulders;
that lonely confrontation at the park;
and that near kiss in front of Juliet’s statue In Verona.
Imagine You and Me’s trailer also shows a lot of dramatic scenes, with Gara and Andrew voicing out simple “hugot” lines that will pinch the heart of any true-blue AlDub fan.
Here are some of those:
Please don’t break my heart like this, binuo mo na ako – Andrew.
Hindi ko kayang ipagkait sa kaniya ang isang bagay na alam kong kukumpleto sa kaniya. I love him too much to do that -Gara.
Ano ba gusto mong sabihin ko? Na tinago ko sa’yo kasi mahal na kita, ganun ba? -Gara
The AlDub nation had been imagining what the real plot of the movie is. But the question that keeps cropping up on social media is “Will Alden and Maine kiss in the movie?”
Lola Nidora (Wally Bayola), who supposedly saw the ending of the movie on a laptop during Kalyeserye’s June 25th episode, hinted just as much.
Puckering up her lips after watching the ending of the film exclusively, Lola Nidora’s hint gives more incentive for the AlDub fans to watch the movie. They might just get to witness the first AlDub kiss on the big screen IF Lola Nidora’s hint is spot on.
Imagine You and Me will be showing in cinemas on July 13, an apt gift to the AlDub nation for AlDub’s first year anniversary on July 16.
