Spring Films, the producer of Kimmy Dora, released the final gross of the movie without fear. And who should be ashamed of P80 million? for an independent film produced by a group of new players in movie production, 80 million pesos for 6 weeks is a remarkable feat!
Vilma Santos‘ comeback movie, In My Life, is assured of the second spot in this year’s list of top-grossing films. Estimates have it that In My Life already outgrossed Best Friends Forever (BFF), the current second placer this year. The Ai Ai delas Alas and Sharon Cuneta starrer registered P107.68 million at the box office and that’s the figure In My Life needs to beat in order to place second behind the no. 1 movie of the year, You Changed My Life.
Kimmy Dora is now resting in the no. 5 slot besting Love Me Again, When I Met U and Sundo. It’s the top-grossing independent film this year and perhaps the top-grossing independent movie of all time.
