John Lloyd and Bea Alonzo reprises their iconic roles as Popoy and Basha in Star Cinema’s upcoming romantic-drama A Second Chance – the highly anticipated sequel of 2007’s smash box-office hit One More Chance.
As Popoy and Basha, John Lloyd and Bea became Filipino pop-culture icons as the love story of the character they brilliantly portrayed spawned a generation of heartbroken romantics who continue to hope for the true love.
One More Chance, which greatly influenced the perception of Millennial on love, is the very first worldwide hit of Star Cinema. The films’ immortal lines as delivered by its central character, Popoy and Basha, such as “Sana ako parin. Ako na lang. Ako na lang ulit” and “She had me at my worst, You had me at my best... and you chose to break my heart,” lingered and reverberated in the hearts and minds to an entire generation of Filipino moviegoer to this very day.
A Second Chance is the continuation of Popoy’s and Basha’s stories after they’ve given love one more chance. This time, the film explores the intricacies and realities of married life. A Second Chance depicts that not everything is as peachy as Popoy and Basha hoped it would be.
Popoy is a failed achiever, struggling to keep his business afloat and his self esteem intact. Basha on the other hand, assumes the role of the docile wife who had given up so much to keep her marriage together. By painting a different picture of the two characters the country has grown to love, A Second Chance dares to ask the question of whether love remains the same even when people inevitably change.
Ultimately, both Popoy and Basha are now faced with the myriad of challenge as a married couple.
Basha contemplates on the reality that loving Popoy at his best is easy. But will she love him enough to stay with him even at his worst. A Second Chance will show everyone how many chances love truly deserves to get.
A Second Chance is showing in all cinemas nationwide starting November 25.
