Star Cinema’s BROMANCE Starring Zanjoe Marudo


According to, BROMANCE means, a relationship or friendship between two men that is extremely close but does not involve sex. Merriam Webster defines it as a close nonsexual friendship between men.

In Urban Dictionary, it describes the complicated love and affection shared by two straight males.

Basically, bromance is a very close and loving nonsexual relationship between two or more male full blooded heterosexual friends.

ABS-CBN’s Star Cinema attempts to segue from those definition by sort of playing with the words giving it a sibling twist. In Zanjoe Marudo’s upcoming movie, BROMANCE becomes a brother’s romance instead. Zanjoe plays dual roles, one is straight and the other one is gay. Cristine Reyes is also in the movie which I would assume is the straight Zanjoe’s lady love hence referring to his romance in the movie concept of the word bromance.

In any event, bromance definition notwithstanding, I am a fan of Zanjoe and I’m happy that he’ll finally star in his own movie. The teaser alone shows what a great thespian he is. Good luck Papa Zanjoe!
