In Focus: These 5 Unexpected Movie Love Teams Are Giving Us Life!


As much as we won't get tired of KathNiel, JaDine, and JoshLia-starred projects, seeing these stars take a break from working with each other to give birth to fresh onscreen pairings that may or may not have ever crossed our minds doesn't sound like a bad idea. Luckily, the local movie scene is already getting in its position to make this breakthrough happen.

We say, it's the season for unexpected team-ups. In fact, Julia Barretto and Gerald Anderson just announced their upcoming first movie together, Between Maybes. Shookt? That what's you get when you least expect it. But greater than the surprise is our excitment to witness the chemistry these two has to offer. Here are other loveteams to expect this 2019 we never knew we needed to see until now!

Nadine Lustre and Carlo Aquino

The two definitely lived up to the hype when they first revealed their romantic film Ulan as it is currently on its second blockbuster week. It's strange watching Nadine without James and we still got a CarGel hangover but their project becoming a big hit seems to prove that they made the right decision!

Bela Padilla and JC Santos

Bela and JC started as a duo in the 2017 bittersweet film 100 Tula Para Kay Stella. The success, and perhaps the demand from fans, resulted to their second project released in 2018, The Day After Valentine's. We can't imagine another hopeless romantic movie without these two in it. Round 3, yes?

Donny Pangilinan, Loisa Andalio, and Ronnie Alonte

While we all ship #DonKiss so hard, learning that Donny will be in a love triangle with real-life couple Loisa and Ronnie in the Vince, Kath & James sequel titled James, Pat & Dave makes it hard to think of the good chance he'll win the girl. But don't be too sure of yourselves, things don't always end up the way you thought it'll be. Watch out, Ronnie! *wink*

Julia Barretto and Gerald Anderson

After back-to-back postings of what seems to be hints of what's to come, Julia and Gerald finally confirmed that they'll be doing Between Maybes together. This is their first time working together but given their mastery in the field of romance - Love You To The Stars And Back and My Perfect You, respectively- it goes without saying that this tandem is something to look forward to.

Kathryn Bernardo and Alden Richards

Following her and Daniel Padilla's mutual decision not to accept projects together, Kath surprised us as she joined forces with the "pambansang bae", Alden Richards. Some call it a risk but we call it an interesting combination. Name a more iconic crossover, we'll wait. But in the meantime, let's get in KathDen!

Everybody loves a good love story and every fandom loves seeing their idols make it. In these pairings, we get both. It's safe to say that we're game for yet another cast experiment!
