Box-office director Cathy Garcia Molina revealed she is aware that a lot of people are expecting her upcoming film “Unofficially Yours” to beat the records set by “No Other Woman” and “The Unkabogable Praybeyt Benjamin.”
“Unofficially Yours” is headlined by actor John Lloyd Cruz and actress Angel Locsin.
The new movie will be a reunion for the two stars after appearing in the highly rated TV series, “Imortal.”
Cathy said she would rather concentrate on making the movie better than be pressured by people’s expectations.
“Siyempre nandoon ‘yung tensyon, takot, lalo na at galing sa dalawang super blockbuster ang Star Cinema. And knowing na ang 2011 Metro Manila Film Festival entries natin ganon din, magiging super mega blockbuster. So it’s a tall order for us,” she told Push.com.ph.
Cathy said their only aim is to deliver a good story to the audience.
“Ang lagi lang naman naming intensyon eh makapagbigay ng magandang kuwento sa inyo, ma-entertain kayo at magustuhan ninyo. Kung kumita, bonus na lang ‘yun. Pero ang intensyon talaga namin makagawa ng quality movie,” she said.
Meanwhile, Cathy expressed her gratitude to Angel for trusting her about doing intimate scenes with John Lloyd in the film.
“Kasi medyo may mga maseselan na eksena, and I asked Angel to trust me. When we worked on our first day, naramdaman ko ang bonggang bonggang trust niya,” she said.
While she declined to share more details about the movie, Cathy said its story is something the audience would learn from.
“Kasi kung ikukwento ko in one sentence, it’s about a man who falls in love with someone who doesn’t want to fall in love. Ganon lang kasimple sa akin yung pelikula. Sana kasing excited ninyo kami. Habang ginagawa namin yung pelikula, magkahalo yung tensyon at saya. Sana makapagbigay ulit kami ng bago sa inyong lahat,” she said.
“Unofficially Yours” is slated to be shown in theaters early this year.
