Here is the final update of box-office grosses for the Metro Manila Film Festival (MMFF) which ended last January 7, 2010. Combined, the 7 movies earned a total of P437.6 million, a dip from the 2008 edition which accumulated an all-time high of P450 million.
1. Ang Panday – P 99.4 million
2. I Love You Goodbye – P 94.3 million
3. Ang Darling kong Aswang – P 89.6 million
4. Shake, Rattle & Roll 11 – P 77.6 million
5. Mano Po 6: A Mother’s Love – P 42 million
6. Nobody Nobody but Juan – P 31.9 million
7. Wapakman – P 2.6 million
These numbers confirm “Ang Panday” as the official top-grosser of the film festival and “Wapakman” the box-office flop that it was earlier blogged about.
Onward to Metro Manila Filmfest 2010!
Nothing much has changed in terms of rankings, except for ‘Mano Po 6’ inching its way one slot higher to 5th. The Top 3 has remained as such and Manny Pacquiao’s ‘Wapakman’ continues to miserably languish in the 7th and last place. Here are the updated box-office grosses of the Metro Manila Filmfest entries as of December 31, 2009:
1. Ang Panday P58 million
2. Ang Darling kong Aswang P56.5 million
3. Shake, Rattle & Roll 11 P53 million
4. I Love You, Goodbye P51 million
5. Mano Po 6: A Mother’s Love P25 million
6. Nobody Nobody but Juan P23 million
7. Wapakman P2.1 million
The 7 movies have up until Thursday, January 7, to dominate the multiplexes nationwide. By Friday, its back to regular programming when ‘Sherlock Holmes’ and the ‘squeakquel’ of Alvin and the Chipmunks finally open.
Early official figures for the box-office performance of all 7 movies in the Metro Manila Filmfest (MMFF) have started pouring in and it looks like a neck-to-neck battle among fantasy-driven flicks, except for Manny Pacquiao’s ‘Wapakman’ that is.
Manny Pacquiao's "Wapakman" is doing poorly at the tills and painfully crawling to make at least a near-decent share of the box-office grosses. What went wrong?
The world-famous Filipino boxer failed to sustain the kind of crowds watching his ring bouts at the multiplexes. Perhaps, his rumored affair with starlet Krista Ranillo (who plays a villain role in the same movie) is adversely affecting its performance. Anyways, here are the December 25 grosses of the MMFF movies, as provided by festival organizers:
1. Ang Panday – P16.9 million
2. Ang Darling kong Aswang – P16.8 million
3. Shake, Rattle & Roll 11 – P16.2 million
4. I Love You, Goodbye – P11.7 million
5. Nobody Nobody but Juan – P8 million
6. Mano Po 6: A Mother’s Love – P6.9 million
7. Wapakman – P0.75 million 😦
The filmfest awards night will be held tomorrow night and if the acting trophies land on Mano Po’s lap, the movie can still zoom past its current box-office placement. And that means, ‘Wapakman’ will still remain the cellar-dweller in this year’s edition, given the significantly wide lead of the 6 other entries.
