MANILA - The first official full-length trailer of Vhong Navarro's upcoming comedy film, "Da Possessed," has been released, promising a silly and lighthearted movie for the summer.
The three-minute clip, posted by Star Cinema online, introduces the character Ramon (Navarro), a simple man whose dire need for money has pushed him to pursue a career in landscape art.
He then falls in love with his boss Anna (Solenn Heusaff), a perky young woman dressed in a bright yellow dress. The two develop a romantic relationship soon, thanks to Ramon's sense of humor.
The conflict begins, however, when three peculiar and restless spirits starts possessing Ramon's body, leading to a series of wacky and bizarre events, similar to the tone of Navarro's previous big screen outings.
"Sobra po akong nagpapasalamat sa walang-sawang suporta na nakukuha ko mula sa ABS-CBN, Star Cinema, at sa aking mga tagahanga. Siniguro po namin na talagang magugustuhan ng lahat ang 'Da Possessed.' Dapat po sama-sama tayong mag-enjoy at tumawa," said Navarro in an earlier report.
Navarro, in "Da Possessed," reunites with acclaimed director Joyce Bernal, who directed the comedian's hit films including "Mr. Suave" (2003), "D' Anothers" (2005) and "Agent X44" (2007).
Other cast members include John "Sweet" Lapus, Empoy, Smokey Manaloto, Beverly Salviejo, Lito Pimentel, Joy Viado, Matet De Leon, Aaliyah Belmoro, and Joey Marquez.
"Da Possessed" is scheduled to hit cinemas on April 19.
