“Miss Granny” Trailer: Sarah Geronimo’s new movie beats with olden heart
The full trailer for Joyce Bernal’s musical drama, Miss Granny, has surfaced online, revealing new footage from the film and a glorious callback to the classic Viva FIlms logo.
The film stars Sarah Geronimo and is largely centered around a mysterious photo studio that brings a lonely elder named Fely (Nova Villa) back to her youth (Geronimo). We learn from the trailer that though Fely gets to relive life with her regained youth, it doesn’t take long before she’s pulled back to care for her family, joining as the vocalist for a band in which her grandson (James Reid) plays as the bassist.
At this point, any project Sarah is involved with becomes an event, and the same seems true for Miss Granny—and for good reason.
Over the years, Sarah proves skilled on all fronts of being a superstar, and it’s rare that one doesn’t fail us in terms of acting (ahem, Madonna, *ducks under the table for fear of eternal damnation*), an area in which Sarah obviously thrives (see: It Takes a Man and a Woman, and more recently, The Break-up Playlist).
All of which is to say, I harbor no shame as a complete sucker for Sarah’s work—but I digress.
The trailer itself is great, and I’d be straight-up lying if I said I’m not excited for this, even if it’s only for Sarah. The homage to the classic Viva Films branding from the olden days is a nice touch too.
Color me the Sarah G-stan, go ahead. Bedazzle me, hunty. But make sure to watch the trailer below.
Miss Granny opens across Philippine theaters on August 22, 2018. It also stars Nonie Buencamino, Lotlot De Leon, and Xian Lim.
