Quezon City, Philippines (October 17, 2016) – For the first time, Angel Locsin, Sam Milby and Zanjoe Marudo come together in a movie about an unlikely set-up of a love, an old flame and second chances in “The Third Party,” airing in key cities worldwide this October via TFC@theMovies.
Graded A by the Cinema Evaluation Board (CEB), “The Third Party” tells the story of Andi (Locsin), a woman who is still not over her ex-boyfriend and high school best friend Max (Milby). After some years, their paths cross again and Andi hopes that this becomes the perfect time to rekindle their romance. Her hope crushes after Max introduces her to his partner Christian (Marudo).
Andi is ready to move on again until in an interesting twist of fate, an untoward incident forces her to run back to Max and asks if she could live with him and Christian. As Andi tries one more time to win back the heart of Max, Christian is determined to do everything to keep him.
The multi-awarded Locsin said in an interview in “Tonight With Boy Abunda” that everyone can surely relate to the film, especially those who have had their hearts broken before. Locsin explains: “Kasi lahat po tayo ay nagmahal at nasaktan, nagmaganda at umasa pero minsan, may kapalit na.”
Kapamilya Heartthrob Milby’s character Max who may have taken the break up badly at the start, has already moved on and is now in a tight relationship with Christian. This is the case until he sees ex-girlfriend Andi and feels his heart beat for her again. Milby says it’s about taking a bit something from the past to learn how to deal much with the present and what could be the future. “It’s about making mistakes but realizing that those mistakes will become good blessings,” Milby says.
Christian, played by another Kapamilya Heartthrob Marudo, who is settled with Max, will find Andi’s entry, albeit accidental, very intrusive. “Hindi puwedeng ganoon kasi dalawa kayo sa relasyon,” Marudo says of his character’s perception.
In the circus of it all, Andi trying to win Max back and Christian doing everything to keep their relationship – whose love will prevail?
