Regal Films and GMA Films Concealing the Box Office Gross of ‘My Monster Mom’?

In the Philippine Box Office report by the website Box Office Mojo for July 2 to 6, 2008, one movie is missing in the list and it's the GMA Films/Regal Films comedy "My Monster Mom."

The “mysterious” exclusion of My Monster Mom in the boxoffice report triggered my curiosity since Box Office Mojo has been able to track local box office returns, even for Filipino films, since the year started.

I just called Regal Films and asked if they have any idea, even approximate figure, on how much was the gross of “My Monster Mom” so far. A woman answered “Sorry, di kami nagbibigay ng gross.” I also called GMA Films and asked the same question but they said they have no idea.

This leads me to the question, “Are GMA Films and Regal Films concealing the box office gross of My Monster Mom?” How come they disclosed the box office result of their first movie this year, My Bestfriend’s Girlfriend, starring Marian Rivera and Richard Gutierrez? Is it because the said film surpassed the P100 million mark?

Anyway, let’s just wait if they will reveal the boxoffice gross of My Monster Mom in the coming days.

For now, here’s the Top 10 movies in the Philippines, with the exclusion of “My Monster Mom”, for the weekend of July 2 to 6, 2008.
