Alex Gonzaga-Joseph Marco: A Perfect Tandem in #MyReboundGirl?

This romantic-comedy flick titled—‘My Rebound Girl’ is Regal Entertainment Incorporated’s latest offering that opens today, September 28 with Alex Gonzaga and Joseph Marco as the lead stars.


If Julia Roberts was known to be the ‘Runaway Bride’ back in 1999 opposite Richard Gere, here in an Emmanuel de la Cruz film, Gonzaga is known as the #PambansangReboundGirl. She is paired anew with Marco after their almost real-life romance when they did a Kapamilya series—‘Pure Love’ back in 2014.

The younger sister of Toni Gonzaga shines on her own way as she delivers her brand of antics and dramatic prowess and provides a different kind of ‘kilig’ for the audiences as she being ‘Raquel’ or ‘Rocky’ meets the guy who will unexpectedly make her break the rule she made on ‘How Not to be a Rebound Girl’. Rocky falls in love with Rich (Marco) who’s trying to mend a broken heart and who entered into a business deal with her via a concept café called #PerfectBlend.

To make the film more romantic, it was shot partly in Benguet where coffee are also grown and posed as Rich’s location for their family coffee farm.

While doing business together, both will discover a ‘spark’ between them but Rich’s ex-girlfriend stands in the way of the blossoming relationship.

Also in the cast are Martin Escudero, Natalie Hart, Carl Guevarra, Alora Sasam, Mitoy Yonting, Nico Nicolas of Pinoy Boyband contestant, Anna Vicemte, Lawrence Yap and Helga Krapf.
