Fresh from their sold-out pre-Valentine concert, Jadine Revolution, staged at the Smart Araneta Coliseum and highly successful series of shows abroad, the Team Real of James Reid and Nadine Lustre is back, this time on the big screen via VIVA Films’ newest offering, “Never Not Love You.”
The romance drama shot mainly in London with some scenes taken in Manila and Zambales, reunites the JaDine tandem with box-office writer-director Antoinette Jadaone in a unique tale which showcases more mature performances from the country’s hottest loveteam.
JaDine and Direk Antoinette were the team behind the record-breaking primetime teleserye, “On the Wings of Love,” on ABS-CBN 2.
In “Never Not Love You,” showing in theaters nationwide on Black Saturday, March 31, it casts James as Gio, a freelance graphic designer, and Nadine as Joanne, a management trainee in an ad agency/direct-selling company.
Their young, carefree and reckless love affair ends abruptly as their dream take them to different paths and their life choices eventually tear them apart.
They, however, cross paths once again a few years later only to discover that so many things have changed, including the kind of love they once had for each other.
“Never Not Love You” may be described as a total departure from the innocent and easy going characters James and Nadine have been known for in earlier blockbuster projects like their big screen debut, “Diary ng Panget” and phenomenal primetime teleseryes such as “Till I Met You” and “On the Wings of Love.”
Based on the trailer, which is now up on VIVA’s YouTube channel and other social media platforms, Direk Antoinette drew raw emotions from the box-office pairing that are at times both tender and intense as the conflicts their characters have to hurdle in the name of love.
“Never Not Love You” properly displays the JaDine tandem like no one has ever seen them before — moare mature and more dynamic. It is Team Real at its best — as real as it can get.
Catch, James and Nadine, in their most revealing and moving performances in “Never Not Love You” from VIVA Films and Project 8 corner San Joaquin projects, starting Black Saturday, March 31.
