Mmff Entries Earn P597 Million In One WeekAfter six days in theaters, the eight films of the 39th Metro Manila Film Fest have earned P597 million, a record-breaking performance for the annual film fest.
The top grossers are still Vic Sotto's "My Little Bossings," Vice Ganda's "Girl, Boy, Bakla, Tomboy," Daniel Padilla's "Pagpag, Siyam Na Buhay" and Eugene Domingo's "Kimmy Dora: Ang Kiyemeng Prequel."
Other films include Robin Padilla's "10,000 Hours" (Best Picture), ER Ejercito's and KC Concepcion's "Boy Golden," Rocco Nacino's "Pedro Calungsod" and the musical "Kaleidoscope World," which was inspired by the music of the late Francis M.
Aside from Best Picture, "10,000 Hours" also won 13 other awards including Best Actor for Robin and Best Director for Bb. Joyce Bernal.
"My Little Bossings" won 3rd Best Picture, Best Supporting Actress for Aiza Seguerra and Best Child Performer for Ryzza Mae Dizon.
It tells the story of Justin (Bimby Aquino-Yap) who has to live with his mother's accountant (Vic Sotto) and a street-smart girl named Ching (Ryzza Mae).
On the other hand, "Girl, Boy, Bakla, Tomboy" (2nd Best Picture) is where Vice Ganda had to portray four characters--quadruplets separated at birth. Many thought the Best Actor award will be given to him because of the said portrayal. Maricel Soriano's plays the role of his mother.
"Pagpag, Siyam Na Buhay" is the first horror film that starred teen royalties Kathryn Bernardo and Daniel Padilla. It tackles age-old beliefs about death and funerals.
"Kimmy Dora" brings back the twins Kimmy and Dora as they partner together to save their family business. Sam Milby also stars here.
Last year's MMFF entries grossed P527 million and earned a total of P767.8 million.
