‘Sundo’ Tops RP Box-Office with P17.98 M, ‘You Changed My Life’ Hits P216.3 M

The GMA Films horror movie "Sundo" topped Philippine box-office last weekend of March 18-22, 2009 with a modest haul of P17,988,400.46.

Directed by Topel Lee (Ouija), Sundo received a grade of “B” from the Cinema Evaluation Board. It is rated PG by the MTRCB because of some violent scenes not suitable for children.

It is a story about a retired military operative who goes into seclusion and discovers that he has the uncanny ability of seeing ghosts around people who will soon encounter sudden, disastrous deaths.

It stars Robin Padilla, Sunshine Dizon, Rhian Ramos, Hero Angeles, Mark Bautista and Katrina Halili.

The Star Cinema movie You Changed My Life, on the other hand, raked-in P11.29 million last weekend for a total 4-week gross of P216.3 Million, the highest top-grosser in Philippine history!
