MANILA – Now we know why actress Anne Curtis has been coy when asked about details of her upcoming movie “The Gifted.”

Over the weekend, Viva Entertainment finally released the trailer of Curtis’ latest film, which also stars Cristine Reyes and Sam Milby.

“Two girls gifted with extremely high IQ endure growing up together as enemies until a new boy in school comes along. Beauty and Brains collide with the arrival of the new Boy,” Viva Films said in the trailer's description.

The trailer shows the friendship of two “gifted” young girls, who are played by Curtis and Reyes as adults, as they fight for the attention of their former school crush Milby.

In the movie, Curtis is seen wearing a fat suit as she plays an obese woman, while Reyes dons nerdy glasses and has buck teeth and bushy eyebrows.

In an earlier interview with ABS-CBN News, Curtis said she couldn't divulge details of the plot but described the characters as "super hilarious," and the script "intelligent."

“Nakakatawa 'yung mga pasabog ng bawat character. Meron pang isang element dito na hindi ko puwede i-share sa mga tao. Malalaman niyo siguro when the trailer comes out. Ang nakikita niyo ngayon, glamorous sila, but there's another element to it,” she said at the time.

“The Gifted” is written and directed by Chris Martinez, whose previous works include the award-winning “Ang Babae sa Septic Tank.”
