In line with their 20th anniversary celebration, Philippines’ top movie outfit, Star Cinema is coming up with the movie “The Trial,” starring John Lloyd Cruz with Jessy Mendiola, Vivian Velez, Richard Gomez and Gretchen Barretto.
In the official film trailer released last September 22, John Lloyd is seen portraying a mentally challenged guy who will be accused of raping his teacher; a story very similar to South Korea’s Miracle in Cell #7, wherein the main character was also a differently abled man who was accused and sentenced to death for the crime of child rape.
Still don’t know what will be the ending of The Trial, if Cruz’ character will be convicted also or will be acquitted, but with the flow of its story based on the trailer, it cannot be denied that it shares the theme of Miracle in Cell #7.
The Trial is directed by Chito Roño and is set to hit the cinemas on October 15, 2014.
Here’s the official film trailer of Star Cinema’s The Trial.
