Instead of releasing its new movie in cinemas before its digital release two weeks later, TBA Studios will go direct to digital in showing Dito at Doon starting March 31. Starring Janine Gutierrez and JC Santos—who are paired for the first time—this new romance movie was first slated for nationwide release in cinemas on March 17.
According to the CEO of TBA Studios, Mr. E.A. Rocha, they have decided to release ‘Dito at Doon’ exclusively online while its theatrical release is on hold. “This was a very difficult decision for the whole team, but one that has everyone’s best interest in mind.”
About ‘Dito at Doon‘
Set during the pandemic, “Dito at Doon” revolves around political science graduate Len (Janine Gutierrez) and her online/offline frenemy Caloy (JC Santos). With polarizing views and challenges of not being physically together, will their relationship survive?
Directed by JP Habac of “I’m Drunk, I Love You.” fame, “Dito at Doon” also features host and stand-up comedian Victor Anastacio and theater actress Yesh Burce, with the special participation of Janine’s mom Lotlot de Leon.
The film was developed and shot during the pandemic, and was slated to be the first big local movie to be released a year since the pandemic started.
“We know how much it means for a lot of people to finally share this experience together on the big screen and we feel positive that there would still be a chance for us to do so. But for now, we are happy to offer an accessible and convenient alternative for Filipino movie fans eagerly waiting to see ‘Dito at Doon’,” Rocha added.
