Imagine You and Me Film Trailer Review
What can be said about Imagine You and Me teaser movie trailer? Well, besides mistaking that the film uses The Turtles "Happy Together" as its theme song (which it doesn't, by the way), it looks very simplistic. A romantic film that cashes in on the "popularity" of Alden and Maine of AlDub. It is the first major film featuring the AlDub (some fans call it MaiDen) love team who got their first wind out of sheer luck in the Philippines' longest running variety show Eat Bulaga for almost a year now. This is the second film that featured Eat Bulaga's Maine Mendoza and Alden Richards in a film; the first one being My Bebe Love: #KiligPaMore. So besides the standard "kilig" that one might get from romantic film trailers, what else do we get from this teaser trailer?
That is the first question to come in to mind. Why only release a teaser trailer, when they can already release the full trailer? It's more than a month before the romantic film's eventual theatrical release and all they have are breadcrumbs which only gives us a most basic of premise, of two Filipino yuppies finding love and probably a first one at that (at least) for one of the "Maine" character; a love story which happens to be set in Italy. Besides everything else, we have nothing. This doesn't bode as the lack of proper marketing and hype is only exclusive to some teaser trailers and clips shown during Eat Bulaga and feature in the network news' showbiz segment. The movie doesn't seem to offer anything new to (or to revolutionize) the genre. It simply is a romantic film set (and mostly shot abroad) with tons of "pick up lines" used by a a charismatic male leading man to a "No Boyfriend Since Birth" (NBSB) female lead; a film which seems to only cater to the AlDub fans. Well, at least that is what we can observe from the teaser trailer least than a month away from its actual release. This is something observe in some Star Cinema films as well, but ABS-CBN seems to be more hands on with how they promote their films — to an ad nauseam level.
