"My Little Bossings" Grosses P50.4 Million On Opening Day"My Little Bossings" did not only gather more attention than any of the 2013 Metro Manila Film Fest entries, it also earned a whopping P50.4 million in its opening day last Christmas. This was reported by the Metro Manila Development Authority (MMDA).
Kris Aquino, who starred and produced in the film that introduced her son Bimby, said the greatest gift is knowing that the public supports Bimby's movie debut.
Bimby also starred alongside "Eat Bulaga's" Ryzza Mae Dizon. The eight official entries for the MMFF will air from December 25 to January 7.
"My Little Bossings" was directed by Marlon Rivera, who also filmed Eugene Domingo's highly acclaimed "Ang Babae Sa Septic Tank." It tells the story of a spoiled rich kid (Bimby) who had to live with his driver (Vic) and his family (Aiza Seguerra and Ryzza Mae). At first, Bimby and Ryzza Mae didn't get along well together, but they eventually formed a deep bond of friendship through misadventures.
According to the MMDA, "My Little Bossings" debuted at number one while Vice Ganda's "Girl, Boy, Bakla, Tomboy" is at number two. Daniel Padilla's "Pagpag, Siyam Na Buhay" is at number three and Eugene's "Kimmy Dora Ang Kiyemeng Prequel" completed the top four films of the festival.
On her Instagram account, Kris congratulated her son Bimby and Ryzza Mae for the successful run of the film. She also thanked the "Eat Bulaga's" child star for accepting the role to be Bimby's first "leading lady."
The breakdown for the P50.4 million gross is as follows: P24.6 million in Manila and P25.7 in the provinces.
On the other hand, "Girl, Boy, Bakla, Tomboy" earned P47.6 million while "Pagpag, Siyam Na Buhay" grossed P23.7 million. MMDA has yet to disclose figures for "Kimmy Dora."
"My Little Bossings" is reportedly the "highest opening day gross for a Filipino movie."
Other entries in the MMFF are Robin Padilla's "10,000 Hours," ER Ejercito's and KC Concepcion's "Boy Golden: Shoot-To-Kill (The Arturo Porcuna Story), Yassi Pressman's and Sef Cadayona's "Kaleidoscope World" and Rocco Nacino's "Pedro Calungsod: Batang Martir."
