Cheese in the Trap Movie Releases Preview and New Stills with Premiere on White Day March 14th

Hence my mistake in the last post on the upcoming Cheese in the Trap movie which is scheduled to premiere next month on March 14th which is White Valentine’s Day and I saw the Valentine’s Day and naturally assumed it was the regular rather than white one.

I just feel this whole project comes off as perfunctory and lacking any spark or sizzle, like everyone is just going through the motions.
