With the help of social media, this sexy comedy movie has gone viral to the hilt!
The official trailer of the upcoming sexy romantic comedy film, The Hopeful Romantic trended as expected as it has reached a remarkable 9.6 million views (and counting) on Facebook in less than three weeks since it was launched.
If anything, the virality of the trailer to organic Facebook users indicates a positive reception from netizens. As of today, the trailer has now reached 108,000 shares, 14,000 positive comments on Good Time Fan Page.
“Ayos ‘yo ah, basta hindi gwapong aktor tapos ganito ‘yung concept na movie, siguradong papatok.”
“Mas gusto ko ganitong movie. Matatawa ka na maiiyak. Mas nakaka-inlove ang ganito at nakaka-excite!”
Starring theatre/TV/movie actor, Pepe Herrera and actress Ritz Azul, The Hopeful Romantic offers not just an entertaining love story, but also aims to impart an important lesson about love.
Ritz, who gets to be launched in this film as a leading lady, beams with pride about this project.
“Sobrang proud ako sa pelikulang ito kasi lahat pinaghirapan namin: ng direktor, producers, writers, at syempre co-actors ko na pinagpuyatan.
“Nakailang revisions kami para mapaganda ang story, para maihatid yung message ng story na may matutunan sila. Tsaka maganda ang storya, kapupulutan talaga siya ng aral.
The actress had to face a lot of challengers for this movie.
Firstly, Ritz, who is more comfortable with drama, ventures into comedy in The Hopeful Romantic.
Secondly, she had to lose weight to effectively portray her role as a sexy gold digger.
“Ang mahirap lang for me, physically, dapat medyo mukhang sexy don sa screen, so nag-struggle din ako to lose weight, kasi sobrang lumaki ako for a while before gawin yung movie.
“And then nahirapan ako kasi sobrang kabaligtaran ko ang role sa totoong buhay. Naging kumportable ako sa mga katrabaho ko, kaya napa-swimsuit ako.”
