MANILA -- Star Cinema unveiled on Friday the official poster of "Bride for Rent," the second film to be top-billed by onscreen couple Kim Chiu and Xian Lim.

The poster, which was released via Star Cinema's social media pages, is the first glimpse of the project directed by Mae Czarina Cruz ("She's the One," "Catch Me... I'm in Love").

According to Mico del Rosario, advertising and promotions manager of the ABS-CBN film production group, "Bride for Rent" is scheduled for a January 15, 2014 release.

This premiere date is less than a year since the release of "Bakit Hindi Ka Crush ng Crush Mo?", the first big-screen team-up of Chiu and Lim, which grossed over P100 million in three weeks.

The romantic-comedy film hit theaters last July 31.

Before "Bakit Hindi Ka Crush ng Crush Mo?", Chiu and Lim co-starred in the primetime series "My Binondo Girl," which introduced their tandem, and the highly successful "Ina, Kapatid, Anak."

"Bride for Rent" also stars Pilita Corales, Tirso Cruz III, Matt Evans, Martin del Rosario, and Matt Evans.
