If you’re a fan of local cinema, there’s a huge chance you’re a fan of the love team tandem of John Lloyd Cruz and Bea Alonzo. This year, JLC has finally emerged from his hiatus, and fans have been clamoring for the duo to team up once again.
Well, the wait is finally over as Popoy and Basha will share the screen for everyone to enjoy. Jollibee Studios recently announced that the pair will star in an upcoming short film, which will stream exclusively on Jollibee Studios’ YouTube channel this December 1.
“The much awaited reunion of Philippine cinema’s iconic pair John Lloyd Cruz and Bea Alonzo is real! One True Pair The Movie is streaming this December 1, exclusively on Jollibee Studios YouTube channel,” they captioned in their post.
As expected, fans have already been raving and marking their calendars. To hype them up, Jollibbe Studios even shared a sneak peek of the short film. In the teaser, the actors catch up, asking “Kumusta puso mo?” (how is your heart?) then they drive through a Jollibee to grab some grub.
“May mga bagay na pag pinagsama mo (there are things that when you join together), it’s just perfect,” Cruz said in the video.
“Meron din naman after all these years never kong pinagpalit (There are things I never gave up all these years),” Alonzo answered.
As per Jollibee, they chose Cruz and Alonzo because they “best represent” two of the fast-food chain’s bestsellers: the Chickenjoy with Jolly Spaghetti.
“I couldn’t say no to this project. Jollibee’s Chickenjoy with Jolly Spaghetti are classics for me, and Bea brings out some of my best work. The choice was clear,” Cruz said.
“Who wouldn’t accept the offer to be the face of a beloved Filipino brand and food, and to work with your best partner at the same time? It’s an immediate yes for me,” Alonzo shared. Thank God the pair are back working together!
