It’s been two years since we saw her in the big screen via the 2020 zombie thriller Block Z. And now, Julia Barretto makes an exciting return as she takes on one of her most challenging roles to date opposite Carlo Aquino, who plays her leading man for the very first time in the latest Viva Films romance flick Expensive Candy.
Julia shared the full trailer of the film on her Instagram account on Sunday, August 21.
The Expensive Candy stars also did a sexy-themed pictorial with photographer Andrea Baldua, which the latter shared on her own social media feed.
In a succeeding post, Julia shared a snapshot of her in character as Candy wearing sexy leopard print lingerie which earned her even more admiring comments from her fellow actresses in showbiz like Jane de Leon, Chie Filomeno, Alex Gonzaga, Awra Abriguela, Ria Atayde, and her sister Dani Barretto.
Julia’s co-star and new leading man Carlo Aquino also shared snapshots of him in character for the film.
Expensive Candy is directed by Jason Paul Laxamana. It opens in cinemas on September 14.
