The third installment in the series of romantic-comedy films starring John Lloyd Cruz and Sarah Geronimo is the fastest movie to reach P300 million at the tills in just two weeks time!
“It Takes a Man and a Woman” is now on track to bump off the comedy flick “The Unkabogable Praybeyt Benjamin” as the second all-time highest grossing local film, after it earned at least P300 million within its first two weeks in cinemas nationwide.
The movie “Praybeyt Benjamin” starring Vice Ganda and directed by Wenn V. Deramas, reportedly earned P331 million during its theatrical run in 2011.
It places second in terms of total box-office earnings to another Deramas film “Sisterakas,” which featured the trio of Vice Ganda, Kris Aquino and Ai Ai delas Alas as lead stars which is a MMFF entry and reportedly earned P391 million during its run in cinemas nationwide, making it the all-time highest grossing.
“It Takes a Man and a Woman” is a different movie which is up against Hollywood blockbuster movies.
Will the movie sustains its momentum and becomes the highest grossing movie of all time?
This is what John Lloyd Cruz has to say on this:
“Hindi ko alam, mahirap sabihin, because when ‘Sisterakas’ was shown, ano ‘yun eh, film fest. Ngayon, matindi pa ang competition, ang daming summer big movies na paparating habang magpe-play kami, so I don’t know. Hindi ko alam kung ano mangyayari, pero siyempre andoon ‘yung… umaasa tayo na magtuluy-tuloy.”
