Mainstream’s Bottom 2:

Nandito Ako Nagmamahal sa ‘Yo (Regal Films) – P5.21 M
Wapakman (Solar) – P2.6 M

UPDATE: Apparently, our estimate of P70 million for the film “Ang Tanging Pamilya” was right on as Star Cinema released the official box-office gross of the film via PEP. The Ai Ai delas Alas-Erap Estrada comedy raked in P72 million. Star Cinema also revealed that their no. 1 movie of 2009, You Changed My Life, registered P208.8 million which is lower than what Box Office Mojo had reported. Anyway, this latest update will only make minor changes in the ranking. with the entry of Ang Tanging Pamilya at no. 10, the Piolo Pascual and Angel Locsin starrer “Love Me Again” is no longer in the Top 10 highest-grossing pinoy films of the year.
