After flying to Dubai last year to start shooting on his film Love or Money. which was initially intended to be part of the inaugural Summer Metro Manila Film Festival (MMFF), Coco Martin’s first onscreen pairing with Angelica Panganiban is finally scheduled for release this month.
The official teaser trailer for the film was released online last February 1 on the official ABS-CBN Star Cinema channel on YouTube. The trailer shows the two stars having drinks at a bar while debating over the notion on what matters most in life: love or money. The film was directed by Mae Cruz-Alviar and will be streamed through KTX.ph, iWant TFC, TFC IPTV, Cignal PPV, and Sky Cable PPV beginning March 12.

Coco first announced the film and introduced his newest leading lady to the public in late 2019. The FPJ’s Ang Probinsyano star expressed excitement and his feeling of being pressured at the same time to be paired with Angelica, who has also guested on his primetime series in the past.
In a previous interview, Coco said, “Kasi bagong kombinasyon, and definitely 'yung project, ibang iba sa 'Probinsyano.' Kasi ang tagal ko na sa 'Probinsyano' eh, ngayon excited ako kasi magbabalik ako sa drama and at the same time si Angge, napakagaling na artista sa drama and comedy kaya nakaka-pressure para sa akin.”
