We are already claiming it–the ‘Miracle in Cell No. 7’ Filipino remake will make us bawl like helpless babies.
If you are not aware, ‘Miracle in Cell No. 7’ was a movie that came out way back in 2013. It’s a family-themed comedy-drama that revolves on the relationship of an imprisoned mentally-challenged father and his young daughter. And honestly, this movie broke a lot of hearts, including ours. So when we learned that a ‘Miracle in Cell No. 7’ Filipino remake was coming out, we were super thrilled and excited to see how it would go.
Last night, a teaser for this movie finally came out! Satisfyingly, it was able to show us all a glimpse of the Filipino actors in the shoes of the characters of the film. Really, they were all amazing.

Did you bawl your eyes out? Because we sure as hell shed a few tears just from watching this. Even with just three minutes, we felt like our hearts were already breaking for them.
Through this teaser, we learned more about what to expect from the story, especially for people who haven’t watched the original Korean version of ‘Miracle in Cell No. 7‘ yet.
A star-studded cast on a star-studded day
As we watched the teaser, we just can’t help but be amazed with the actors. Aga Muhlach was really convincing playing the mentally-challenged role of Lito, and child actress Xia Vigor‘s performance as Yesha was really equally heartfelt. We swear, when we heard her helplessly crying, our hearts just wallowed in sympathy for her character. We haven’t seen much of Bela Padilla yet, but we know she would also do the character justice.
Other than the main characters, the rest of the star-studded cast for this movie was just so spot on. Joel Torre, JC Santos, Mon Confiado, Jojit Lorenzo, Soliman Cruz, John Arcilla, plus a special participation of Tirso Cruz III? Sign us up for this ’cause we are hyped af!
This ‘Miracle in Cell No. 7’ remake is directed by Nuel Naval and comes out on December 25, which is a star-studded Christmas day too for all Filipinos. We can’t freaking wait!
