Viva and Star Cinema colab for #JaDine movie

The country’s biggest film outfits known for holding the record of most successful co-productions on local movie scene are joining forces once again for another romantic teen flick.

Featuring the phenomenal love team of James Reid and Nadine Lustre that made an astronomical rise via the blockbusters Ang Diary ng Panget and Talk Back and You’re Dead, the new big screen project is based on a Wattpad series titled Para sa Hopeless Romantic.

Para sa Hopeless Romantic James and Nadine

The story revolves around the juvenile love affair of high school lovers Nikko (Reid) and Rebecca (Lustre), whose relationship abruptly fell apart. To cope with her broken heart, Rebecca writes a story slightly similar to her failed romance with Nikko. Her story’s characters are Maria and Ryan, portrayed by another promising tandem of Julia Barretto and Iñigo Pascual.

The film is said to be a big project in terms of its likelihood to be a blockbuster hit. But content-wise, even if Star Cinema and Viva Films promote this as a good story, it lacks the depth and doesn’t seem to care more on character development.

But as we predict, this flick will make another box office record. Obviously, Star Cinema and Viva Films know their market very well. These are the people who go to the movie houses to get entertained and not be pulled in by compelling plots, state-of-the-art visuals or outstanding character arcs.

We know they mean business but when will they finally pay it forward and leave a valid legacy in Philippine Cinema?
