‘I Love You, Goodbye’ Climbs to No. 2 of MMFF Box-Office Race

I Love You, Goodbye
As of January 6, 2010, the Star Cinema entry is now at no. 2 of the MMFF Box Office race.

Ang Panday is still the no. 1 top-grosser with P97.6 million. With 1 day left, can it reach the P100 million mark?

Snatching the 2nd position is Star Cinema’s I Love You, Goodbye which has now raked in a total of P91 million at the expense of Vic Sotto’s Ang Darling Kong Aswang which dropped to 3rd place.

Wapakman is still at the bottom of the list with only P2.6 million haul, one of the year’s biggest flop considering its production budget.

MMFF Box Office Tally from 2006 to 2009

Check out the final box-office grosses of the Metro Manila Film Festival in the last four years.

From 2006 to 2008, Star Cinema claimed the “MMFF Topgrosser” title for 3 consecutive years with their movies “Kasal, Kasali, Kasalo” (2006), “Sakal, Sakali, Saklolo” (2007) and “Ang Tanging Ina N’yong Lahat” (2008). All three films surpassed the P100 million mark – the bracket which separates the “monster hits” to “mediocre hits.”

Star Cinema’s winning streak was broken in 2009 with GMA Films and Imus Productions’ “Ang Panday” being declared as topgrosser. Their entry, “I Love You, Goodbye”, was in respectable 2nd position considering that it’s classified by MTRCB as a PG-13 movie. Ang Panday, by the way, failed to cross the P100 million bracket with it’s total 14-day gross of P99.4 million, but nevertheless, it was declared the 2009 MMFF topgrosser.

In the last 4 years:

* The highest grossing MMFF was in 2008 with a total gross of P449.3 million

* The highest-grossing MMFF film of all time was Star Cinema’s “Ang Tanging Ina N’yong Lahat” starring Ai Ai delas Alas which garnered a whopping P171 million. Its extended run even pushed the outfit’s earnings to P197 million.

* Wapakman is considered the biggest flop in the last 4 years because its P2.6M gross did not justify its multi-million budget. 2007’s Banal had only P2.34M but it’s only an independent film with a very low budget so it’s not considered a “flop”. In fact, it even managed to win major awards!

* Regal Films at least have 2 entries in the annual filmfest, the most was in 2006 when they have four movies.

* Vic Sotto can be considered as the MMFF Box Office King because his movies in the last 4 years earned a whopping P429.2 million.
