MANILA, January 24, 2024 – Liza Soberano has shared the trailer for “Lisa Frankenstein,” her first Hollywood movie.

After a brief introduction by Liza, the trailer opens with her character, Taffy, in the car with her stepsister Lisa Swallows, the movie’s protagonist played by Kathryn Newton. The two high school students are talking about boys, offering a glimpse into their relationship.

The role of Taffy proved to be one of the most difficult parts to cast because director Zelda Williams, daughter of the late Robin Williams and Marsha Garces Williams, wanted an actress who could deliver many of the film’s most blunt, cringe-worthy lines without a hint of provocation or malice. According to Williams, herself part-Filipina, in an interview with ANC, Taffy is “most people’s favorite part of the movie.”

Academy Award-winning screenwriter Diablo Cody herself has said, “Taffy is my favorite character. She’s a beacon of positivity, and even when she’s unwittingly condescending or tone deaf, her intentions are always kind. She’s more protective of Lisa than anyone else in the film, other than the Creature.”

In “Lisa Frankenstein,” it’s 1989 and Lisa Swallows (Kathryn Newton), an awkward 17-year-old, is trying to adjust to a new school and a new life after her mother’s death and her father’s hasty remarriage. Despite the unwavering support offered by her plucky cheerleader step sister Taffy (Liza Soberano), Lisa only finds solace in the abandoned cemetery near her house, where she tends to the grave of a young man who died in 1837 – and whose corpse she unwittingly reanimates (Cole Sprouse). Feeling obligated to help the poor soul regain his humanity, Lisa embarks on a quest to breathe new life into her long-dead new companion. All she needs to succeed are some freshly harvested body parts and Taffy’s broken tanning bed.

Get ready for the funniest, goriest undead horror romance you’ll see all year when “Lisa Frankenstein,” distributed by Universal Pictures International, opens in cinemas February 7, just in time for Valentine’s Day! #LisaFrankensteinPH
