Sarah and Gerald: One More Time!

The biggest romantic-comedy movie this season! Mai-in love ka! Tatawa ka! The scent of romance with a whiff of humor will fill the early Christmas air this November! Heto na nga ang maagang pamasko mula sa Star Cinema at Viva Films, and "Won't Last the Day Without You"!



Hindi ng nga makapaghintay and milyun-milyung tagahanga ng most successful love team of 2011 na sina Sarah Geronimo at Gerald Anderson na mapanood ang highly anticipated follow-up movie ng dalawa. After the huge success of "Catch Me I'm Falling" which grossed 130M last March, fans really clamored ba masundan agad ito. "Nasurprise ako na gagawan na nga ng follow-up movie! This year din kasi namin ginawa yung unang movie eh so parang expected ko na if ever magkaka follow-up, next year pa." says an excited Sarah Geronimo then she adds "Natuwa din ako kasi nga ibig sabihin may clamor talaga na masundan agad ung 1st movie namin. Mas challenging at nakakakaba lang ng sobra this time kasi for sure higher ang expectations sa amin dito!" Gerald likewise shares the excitement, "Na-excite ako ng binanggit na may follow-up movie agad! Hindi ko pa nun alam kung part 2 ba sya ng "Catch Me...." or ibang story. Then nakipag -meeting kami with Star at ikinuwento sa amin yung story. Ibang-iba to! Very realistic at yung mga characters namin, highly relatable talaga!" He proudly beams!

"When the idea first  came about, management was already very happy!" says the movie director, the very promising Raz de la Torre, "That Sarah would be playing a DJ? Du'n pa lang may kiliti na yung character! And I suppose it's really like responding to kung gaano ka in-demand now yung mga radio programs about counseling. 'Yung mga taong tumatawag sa radio, tumatawag sila para mapagsabihan sila. It's really a big trend now. When I was doing my research going around stations talking to DJ's na ganoon ang programa, iba na talaga ngayon! It's really about the DJ's character more than just the voice." Direk Raz explained.

From the movie's Creative Producer, Carmi Raymundo (the genius behind unforgettable movies "MY Amnesia Girl", "You Changed my Life" and "A Very Special Love") says that "Won't Last the Day Without You" takes it's lead stars on a different turn. "In the movie Sarah is DJ Heidee who hosts a love counseling radio program. If in her past roles Sarah played a "no boyfriend since birth" character na in love na in love sa love, this time she plays a girl who has been seriously broken-hearted kaya she refuses to believe in true love anymore. Nasaktan na sya, na heart-broken na, as in grabe na ang pagsasara sa true love! Until she meets Andrew (Gerald Anderson) who is the exact embodiment of the kind of guy she hates most, womanizer, nakakasakit ng babae! Iba talaga to! What's interesting here is kung papano ita-translate nung dalawa ang mga characters nila on-screen!" Carmi enthuses.

Direk Raz furthers, "The movie is not about what you will validate about love but rather what will break your notions about love! Like halimbawa meron kang ideal man or woman, sa tingin mo bagay sa yo yung ganitong klaseng tao or ang love or relationship dapat ganito, then all of a sudder you find out na ah mas tama pala ng ganito, akala ko hindi pero ito pala ang mas bagay sa'kin! This one makes me happier pala at mas tama sa personalidad ko!" Direk Raz closes.


It does feel like love and romance will fill the Christmas air with "Won't Last the Day Without You"! Sabi nga nila Sarah at Gerald, "this movie is our early Christmas gift not just to our fans but to all the hopeless romantics out there as well! Lalo na dun sa mga members ng SMP (Samahan ng Malalamig ang Pasko), this movie will make you believe in true love!" the two chuckled.

Big move! Big love team! "Won't Last the Day Without You"  opens over 100 theaters nationwide on November 30! We all just can't wait!
