Box Office Mojo has already released the local box office estimates for January 27–31, 2010 and Star Cinema’s first movie of the year–Paano Na Kaya–bested 4 other Hollywood flicks that debuted in the said period. These movies are Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs, The Vampire Assistant, The Blind Side and Solomon Kane.
The Kimerald-starrer raked in an estimate of P41.40 million on its first week in Mega Manila. And according to Star Cinema, the film opened with P12 million gross. Not bad for the first pinoy movie of 2010.
It’s safe to say that Paano Na Kaya is Kim and Gerald’s biggest movie yet. Their previous film, I’ve Fallen For You, had a total gross of P35,917,446 in 2007 while their first film First Day High was reported to have earned even lower. Technically, this is their fourth movie together if we are to include Shake, Rattle and Roll X where they starred in the episode “Class Picture.”
Paano Na Kaya is still being screened in selected cinemas nationwide. It was given a “B” rating by Cinema Evaluation Board (CEB) and rated GP (General Patronage) by the Movie and Television Review and Classification Board.
