The Sharon Cuneta-Robin Padilla reunion movie, Unexpectedly Yours, grossed P14 million on its opening day.
This was announced by Star Cinema through its social media accounts in the wee hours of the morning of November 30.
Unexpectedly Yours, which also stars Julia Barretto and Joshua Garcia, is directed by Cathy Garcia-Molina. It is graded A by the Cinema Evaluation Board.
The rom-com is about two former high school friends Patty (Sharon) and Cocoy (Robin) who find each other unexpectedly 30 years later, not only as organizers of their high school reunion, but also as new neighbors.
Patty and her daughter Yanni's (Julia) quiet lives get an unexpected shake-up when love--in the form of Cocoy and his nephew Jason (Joshua)--comes knocking on their door.
NOT A GABBY CONCEPCION MOVIE. When asked how they felt about be reunited in this movie, Robin took the opportunity to explain that Unexpectedly Yours is a totally different project from the one that was supposed to be done by Gabby Concepcion.
The ex-boyfriend of Sharon narrated during their grand press conference, "Yun ang nakarating sa akin na kailangan mo ako."
The audience cheered while Robin continued:
"Totoo! Wala pong halong kasinungalingan 'yon.
"Ako po ay may ginagawang pelikula sa produksiyon ko. Dalawang pelikula: "Bad Boy 3 at Marcelo del Pilar.
"Tinawagan ako ni Ms Malou Santos [Star Creatives Chief Operating Officer] at sinabi niya: 'Kailangan ka ni Sharon.'"
Sharon then gave her side of the story by saying, "Tinanong kasi ako, 'Sinong gusto mong [leading man]?'"
Robin playfully asked her, "Sinong sinagot mo?"
The Megastar exclaimed, "Robin!"
Robin pointed out, "E, di lumabas ang katotohanan. Hindi ko pelikula ang unang pinagusapan. Nung sumulpot na na po ako, dun po sila gumawa ng konsepto para sa
"Yun po ang istorya, hindi yung si Gabby ang gaganap nito."
Robin then declared, "Ako lang ang makakaganap nito."
Sharon quickly said, "Agree! Agree!"
The former Bad Boy of Philippine cinema added: "Sa lahat ng inibig mo, ako lang ang makakagawa nito! Kahit mapanood niyo ang pelikula, wala...si Robin lang ang makakaganap nito!
"Walang makakaganap na ganyan kayabang."
