Are you ready for a JC Santos + Janine Guitierrez rom-com? Their new film Dito At Doon released its first teaser trailer on January 19, and it seems like we're in for another *masakit* ride! Here's everything we know about the movie (so far):
What is Dito And Doon (Here And There) about?
Based on the one-minute teaser, the two main characters will develop a "relationship" through messages and phone calls. But this isn't before they have an argument about each other's social media posts and comments while drinking with friends. We see Janine's character saying, "Sa susunod na mage-emote ka at magkakalat, 'wag sa feed ko!" JC's character retorts: "Tapang-tapang mo mag-post pero isang comment lang pikon ka na? Yabang yabang pero wala ka rin pala talaga."
Who's in the cast?
Janine Gutierrez as Len
Janine, who recently transferred to ABS-CBN, also has another upcoming rom-com called Ngayon Kaya, this time opposite Paulo Avelino. She recently won Best Actress at the FAMAS Digital 2020 awards for her performance in the film Babae At Baril.
JC Santos as Cabs
JC's most recent romance film is On Vodka, Beers, And Regrets (2020), where he starred opposite Bela Padilla. In January 2020, JC revealed that he had already gotten married, and he introduced his daughter River Altheia to the public in April.
Janine posted about the film in November 2020, saying in the caption: "Anong quarantine love story mo?" They finished filming in December 2020, and JC took to social media to thank the prod team and his co-star: "Ang hirap ng pelikula natin na 'to pero naging magaan ang lahat ng proseso dahil ikaw ang kaeksena ko. Salamat sa iyong generosity at openness! This is our second time working together at sana marami pa tayo magawang magagandang pelikula mahirap man o madali. Break a leg sa mga susunod mo pang projects. Hanggang sa susunod na pagkukwento. Good work, kapatid."
Is that a Ben&Ben theme song?
Yes! The song we hear in the Dito At Doon teaser is "Nakikinig Ka Ba Sa Akin," a Ben&Ben single about respecting each other's differences that was released during the 2020 quarantine. Listen to it here.
When will it be released?
As of this writing, Dito At Doon doesn't have an exact release date yet, but according to an IG post by JC, it will be dropping in March 2021! Watch the latest teaser trailer below:
