The hashtag #ulanmovieteaser generated 27.1K tweets within an hour from when the video was officially released online at 6 p.m. by Viva Entertainment.
The teaser, a short clip lasting around a minute and a half, shows three male characters interacting with lead actress Nadine Lustre: AJ Muhlach, Marco Gumabao, and Carlo Aquino. They appear while the song "Heto Na Naman" by Rice Lucido plays: "Heto na ang gabi, halika sa aking tabi. Yakapin mo ang dilim, sabihin ang iyong hiling..."
The opening scene flashes the young Nadine's character, asking her lola, "Bakit po umuulan pa din kahit maaraw?" "Kasi may mga tikbalang na kinakasal. Tutol ang langit sa klase ng pag-ibig nila." The scene transitions to Nadine's character in solitude, gazing longingly at a set of photos of two lovers which she presses close to her heart. The teaser ends, as the song slowly withdraws and surprises everyone with a young Nadine witnessing a tikbalang wedding.
As teasers go, they leave everyone hanging—and Twitter fans are indulging us with their versions of the the plot, character development, and the rest of the story.
