iWant’s original movie “Glorious” trailer sets PH social media abalze, earns 6M views in a day


Filipino actors Angel Aquino and Tony Labrusca set the internet on fire after the trailer of their iWant original movie “Glorious” made the rounds online, having earned more than six million views in 24 hours. iWant is the new streaming service of ABS-CBN, the leading media and entertainment company in the Philippines, which will be available to iOS and Android users starting November 17.

Produced exclusively for iWant by Dreamscape Digital, the digital arm of ABS-CBN business unit Dreamscape, “Glorious” revolves around Glory (Angel), a 52-year-old woman who falls in love with Niko (Tony), a guy 30 years her junior. They start a risqué May-December love affair, but will struggle to keep their relationship intact amidst social disapproval and judgment.

The full trailer has tallied more than six million views on various Facebook pages after it was released Sunday (November 4), as netizens raved about its steamy scenes featuring Angel and Tony.

The names of the two stars also trended on Twitter in the Philippines as netizens and various celebrities, including Tony Award-winning singer-actress Lea Salonga, posted their enthusiastic reactions to the trailer.

Lea posted on her Facebook page, “So, I just saw the sexiest movie trailer I’ve seen in a long time (it’s reached over 1M views in the last 3 hours, so far). But, beyond the love scenes its protagonists do, allow it to begin a conversation about seeing older women and younger men on screen. Given how utterly beautiful both Angel Aquino and Tony Labrusca are, I am all for it, and wish for their movie Glorious to be a massive hit.
