Bea Alonzo said that she feels very overwhelmed by the major support and the very warm reception of Filipino moviegoers for her film A Second Chance
. The movie grossed 43.3 million pesos on its opening day, the highest in the history for a non-MMFF (Metro Manila Film Fest) movie. "I prayed na sana maraming makapanood, na sana maraming maka
-appreciate at sana maraming matuwa na fans ni Popoy at ni Basha
. Overwhelming 'yung feeling namin
. All overwhelmed sa
reception ng tao
, we did not expect na
it would be this big," she stated.
Bea remarked that it feels very fulfilling that all their hard work has paid off. "Ang sarap ng feeling, hindi ko ma-explain, nagbunga 'yung hard work. Ang sarap kasi napakalapit sa puso namin 'yung project, tapos ganon 'yung effect sa mga tao so siguro 'yung love na ibinigay namin sa trabaho namin, ibinalik nila so iba 'yung feeling." She is also very happy to hear that A Second Chance is earning good reviews. "Siyempre it's as important as the box office di ba? So nakakatuwa kasi hanggang ngayon may tumatawag pa rin, may nagpapa-block screening so we're very happy and I think were going to celebrate soon."
With the many quotable quotes in the film, one line stood out for Bea. "Gustong-gusto ko 'yung sinabi ni Popoy na 'It's brave to ask for what if, but it's even braver to embrace what is.' ['Yon] 'yung core ng pelikula. Di ba lahat tayo meron tayong hopes and dreams and sometimes feeling natin napipigilan ng love and choices natin 'yung the person that we want to become? But actually nasa mind lang natin 'yun eh. Siguro masarap siguro na i-embrace 'yung naging decision mo that is to love somebody this much."
With the success of A Second Chance, is she open to doing a third installment of the film? "Yes! Na-excite ako. Actually kahit hindi pa lumalabas 'yung first day namin, naiisip ko na 'yun eh. Nong napanood ko palang sa premiere night 'yung A Second Chance while doing it nahirapan kami pero naisip ko 'yung ganitong kagandang material, dapat magkaroon pa ng third eh, parang marami pa siyang pwedeng puntahan, pero siguro after eight years ulit," she said.
