Till My Heartaches End rules local box office

Romantic drama Till My Heartaches End, topbilled by Gerald Anderson and Kim Chiu, bested four Hollywood films (The Social Network, Paranormal Activity 2, My Soul To Take, and Buried) last weekend notching 33.02 million pesos on over 70 screens nationwide.

Petrang Kabayo is enjoying the second spot with an additional P14.06M. According to Box Office Mojo, the fantasy-comedy finally breached the 100-million mark with P100.92M, its three-week cumulative ticket sales.

Meanwhile, Regal Films’ White House suffered ticket sales decline earning just over P5 M last weekend. After two weeks, the horror flick only grossed P17.75M, which is still good enough to claim the fifth spot.

Other movies that opened last week are The Social Network at no. 3, and Paranormal Activity 2 at no.4.

Petrang Kabayo is a certified blockbuster

It’s already difficult for local films to earn more than 100 million pesos but Petrang Kabayo starring Vice Ganda, and a remake of a fantasy-comedy 1988 film topbilled by Roderick Paulate, is already on its way to breaching it. After two weeks of commercial release, the movie produced by Viva Films has grossed over 81 million pesos.

Other films that earned more than 100 million pesos this year are Miss You Like Crazy (P143.25 M) Here Comes the Bride (P116 M) and You to Me Are Everything earned (P102.42 M). Meanwhile, Star Cinema offering entitled I Do, and stars onscreen sweethearts Erich Gonzales and Enchong Dee, has grossed 42.39 million pesos after four weeks at the box office.
