MANILA - The full trailer for "She's Dating The Gangster," the highly anticipated third film top-billed by Kathryn Bernardo and Daniel Padilla, has been released.

The nearly three-minute preview, which premiered Thursday during ABS-CBN's primetime block, shows more scenes between the present-day characters portrayed by Padilla and Bernardo.

First introduced in the movie's first teaser, the two try to retrace the love story of Athena and Kenji (also portrayed by Bernardo and Padilla), whose pretend relationship in the '90s turned into "a love too great to die."

"Ang love story daw nila ay isang malaking kaso ng bad timing," Bernardo's present-day character says in one scene.

Based on the bestselling book by Bianca Bernardino, "She's Dating the Gangster" is under the direction of Cathy Garcia-Molina, who previously worked with the Bernardo and Padilla in the hit TV series "Got to Believe."

Scheduled to premiere on July 16, the film will mark the third team-up of the rumored couple on the big screen after "Must Be Love" and "Pagpag: Siyam na Buhay," both released last year.
