It was also chosen second best picture. Plus best story for Dan and real-life partner Antoinette Jadaone, best script (Anj Pessumal), best editing (Marya Ignacio).

A romcom, EOP was Dan’s first mainstream movie, close on the heels of the acclaimed “Mayohan” topbilled by Lovi Poe.

PRODUCTION NOTES – Let’s know more about “All of You.”

The movie is about two souls, Gab (Derek) and Gabby (Jen), with conflicting views on love and marriage.

Gab and Gabby love each other so much enough to make serious commitment. Theirs was happy relationship until they mark their third year as a couple.

Will they choose to continue their romance or will they opt to simply part ways?

Based on initial reactions to “AOY’s” trailer, moviegoers are overly excited about the screen pairing’s reunion, especially in that scene where they supposedly meet in picture-perfect location in Taiwan.

CHEMISTRY – More than the sizzling scenes, audience will sense the strong chemistry between Jen and Derek throughout the movie.

Those who have seen “AOY” agree that it indeed is bigger and better than “English Only, Please.”

It delivers non-stop fun and excitement ideal for the Christmas season.

Moreover, Darren Espanto’s youthful rendition of the theme song, “Dying Inside (To Hold You)” and the original song, “Natapos Na,” created by Jen’s best friend Nar Cabico of GMA-7, add a sweet and unique flavor to “AOY.”

Sharing stellar billing with Derek and Jen are Solenn Heussaff, Rafael Rosell, and Sam Milby.

Others in the cast are Yayo Aguila, Kean Cipriano, Nico Antonio, Via Antonio, Hannah Ledesma, Milo Elmido, Enzo Marcos, Kelvin Yu, and Kate Alejandrino.

Enjoy a more explosive big screen experience this Christmas as “All of You” hits theaters nationwide on Dec. 25, produced by Quantum Films in association with MJM Productions, Globe Studios, and Planet A Media Productions.

Philippine Airlines and Tanduay are major sponsors of “All of You.”
