"Starting Over Again" Earns P307.2 Million In Two WeeksStar Cinema's "Starting Over Again," which stars Piolo Pascual and Toni Gonzaga, earned a whopping P307.2 million in just two weeks.
The movie, which tackles the story of a couple who has yet to have closure, is posed to push "Bride For Rent" as the number one Filipino movie for this year.
It even surpassed the elusive P300-million mark and entered the top 10 highest-grossing Filipino films of all time in just two weeks.
On the other hand, that's not the case for Viva Films' "ABNKKBSNPLAko?! The Movie." It stars Jericho Rosales and Andi Eigenmann.
