Fans of Julia Montes, hold on to your hats: the first official trailer for her new revenge drama, "Asintado," has been released. 

The trailer, which premiered on ABS-CBN Monday night, offers the first extended look at Montes' first teleserye since "Doble Kara" following a teaser that whetted appetites last month. 

Promising to be a wild ride, the fresh clip begins by introducing siblings Ana (Montes) and Samantha (Shaina Magdayao). 

When a fire razed their home kills off their parents, Samantha, who has a facial defect that earned her the label "halimaw," blames Ana for it. Samantha then gets adopted by a rich family, while Ana runs away from her orphanage. 

Flash forward and Samantha, who gets her face fixed, is now a famous jewelry designer, while Ana is working as a nurse. They would meet again, thanks to Gael (Paulo Avelino), Samantha's ex. 

Gael hires Ana as his personal nurse after a mining accident left him injured. The two then fall in love, much to Samantha's dismay. She concocts a plan to kill Ana, which fails. 

Having lived through the attempt at her life, Ana vows revenge on Samantha, who is now pregnant with Gael's child. 

"Asintado" will debut on ABS-CBN on January 15.
