The Lady Next Door

Airing on February 4 as STUDIO5 ORIGINAL MOVIES’ opening salvo is LADY NEXT DOOR, top-billed by timeless beauty Alice Dixson and Artista Academy’s teen heartthrob Mark Neumann as they star in a romantic story that defies age and challenges the accepted norms in society. This is a story of a troubled teenager Jake (Neumann) who falls obsessively in love with Hanna, a much older woman who is emotionally struggling with her personal problems. Despite their age difference, they find happiness in each other’s company and, before they know it, realize that they have fallen in love with each other. Will their love withstand the test of time?

When I Fall in Love

Airing on February 11 as STUDIO5 ORIGINAL MOVIES’ the tearjerking family saga, Superstar Nora Aunor and multi-awarded dramatic actor Tirso Cruz III reunite as a couple faced with the ultimate test of true love. Almost a year before their 40th wedding anniversary, ArmandoBuenaventura (Tirso Cruz III) is diagnosed with stage four pancreatic cancer. Being a doctor, he knows his slim chances of recovery and decides to forego treatment and instead spend what little time he has left with his family. Most importantly, he wants to renew his vow with his beloved wife Fely (Nora Aunor) on their 40th anniversary. What follows is a compelling tale of how they relive their beautiful love affair and share the meaning of true love with their three children: Ricky (Marc Abaya), Nica (Nadine Samonte), and Louie (Felix Roco).

The Replacement Bride

On February 18, STUDIO5 ORIGINAL MOVIES presents TV5 primetime princess and Cinemalaya best actress Jasmine Curtis-Smith and Brazilian-Japanese hunk Daniel Matsunaga in the romantic comedy THE REPLACEMENT BRIDE.  Jasmine plays the role of Chynna, a broken-hearted lass who makes the mistake of ruining the wedding of Kael (Matsunaga), a successful architect who was about to marry his girlfriend of three years if not for Chynna’s intrusion. Determined to make Chynna rectify her wrongdoing, Kael forces her to do everything to win back the heart of his girlfriend Sandy (Arci Muñoz). Will Chynna succeed in her mission or will she replace the bride in the groom’s heart?



The grand finale to the Love Month series airs on February 25, with the breathtaking story and powerhouse cast of BAWAT SANDALI. Featuring Derek Ramsay, Angel Aquino, Yul Servo, Mylene Dizon, and Phillip Salvador, BAWAT SANDALI presents a tragic love affair and a crime mystery that unveils the most shameful discovery.

After many delays the shooting of the movie is finally over, Lamangan also revealed that the cause of the delays is none other than Tirso’s busy schedule and not at all Nora’s fault as what has been reported.

Lamangan said:

“It’s Tirso. Hindi niya kami mabigyan ng schedule kasi sobrang busy siya. He is in the play, ‘Katy,’ tapos tinapos pa yung teleserye niya with Judy Ann Santos, may concerts pa raw siya. Pero heto, at last, matatapos na kami and SM Cinema wants to show it sa mga sinehan nila for a theatrical release. Kasama rito sina Nadine Samonte and Akihiro Sato. Tapos ko na rin yung ‘Lady Next Door’ with Alice Dixson and Mark Neumann of ‘Artista Academy’. Parang ‘Summer of ‘42’ ito. Magaling pala yung Mark. Akala ko, hindi. Natakot yata sa’kin, kaya he delivered. Naka-three weeks taping na rin ako with Sharon Cuneta for ‘Madame Chairman’. Enjoy siya, masaya ang aming show.”
