On the afternoon of August 10th, Director Antoinette Jadaone tweeted the poster for her upcoming movie, Love You To The Stars And Back, with Joshua Garcia and Julia Barretto. It sent my timeline into a frenzy – also the reason why I got a hold of her tweet and was able to see the said poster. I know Joshua and Julia is bound to have another movie together but I really had no idea that it would be released as early as August 30th.

 

 

My First Impressions towards Love You To The Stars And Back’s poster:

  • It reminded me of the movie poster for The Fault in Our Stars wherein Augustus Waters and Hazel Grace were laying in opposite directions but with their heads close by and facing each other. Rotate LYTTSAB’s poster and you’ll see TFIOS. Basically, the poster just have TFIOS vibe all over it.
  • Double exposure gaming is too strong. But with this, people were able to formulate their early theories about the story. On Garcia, we see a serene road with green pasture and a scenic sunset (or is it sunrise lol) as its background and on Barretto we see the city at nighttime all lit up with its lights. So, probably it involves a province boy and a city girl? And a road trip?
  • The poster is definitely aesthetically pleasing because of the color palette that they went for.

Surprise! Last night, Star Cinema and Jadaone uploaded the trailer for Love You To The Stars And Back on their respective accounts. Because the poster got me curious, I immediately clicked on it and watched the whole thing.

Can we just skip the following days and weeks and let it be August 30th already?

The trailer started with this weird incantation: “Ashira grevinda mama ajaarum”. Nicely done. At 0sec, it already grabbed my full attention. People who will attempt to watch it will surely be more curious on what it’s all about because of its weirdness. Is the movie going to deal with some kind of sorcery?, was my thought. But I got my answer immediately during the following scene wherein Mika (Julia) and her mom were talking about aliens and dying. I’m sure her mom died.
