John Lloyd Cruz and Sarah Geronimo were dethroned. Vic Sotto, Bong Revilla and Ai-Ai delas Alas are 2010 Box-Office Kings & Queen of Philippine Movies.
Vic Sotto and Sen. Bong Revilla are tied as 2010 Box-Office Kings according to Guillermo Mendoza Memorial Awards committee. Sotto and Revilla’s MMFF collaboration “Si Agimat at Si Enteng Kabisote” was considered the top-grossing Pinoy movie of 2010 although its screening was extended until January 2011. The fantasy-comedy movie raked in a total of P159 million in its 2-week MMFF duration.
Ai Ai delas Alas, on the other hand, is the new Box-Office Queen because her film “Ang Tanging Ina Mo, Last Na ‘To!”, also an MMFF entry, has grossed P157 million in its 2-week MMFF duration. The said film was the second highest-grossing Pinoy movie of 2010.
Previous Box-Office King John Lloyd Cruz, who reigned for 3 consecutive years, had 2 box-office hits for 2010. His movie “My Amnesia Girl”, opposite Toni Gonzaga, raked in P144.8 million. His movie “Miss You Like Crazy”, opposite Bea Alonzo, had a total gross of P143.25 million. If you are to sum it up, John Lloyd Cruz delivered P288.05 million at the box-office for 2010.
Unfortunately, the titles Box-office King and Queen are being based from the highest-grossing single movie of a male and female lead that’s why John Lloyd Cruz was dethroned. However, John Lloyd is still awarded the Film Actor of the Year title while his “Miss You Like Crazy” leading lady, Bea Alonzo, is the Film Actress of the Year.
Meanwhile, Kapamilya stars Coco Martin and Toni Gonzaga are the Prince and Princess of Philippine Movies for the Star Cinema movies “Sa ‘Yo Lamang” and “My Amnesia Girl”.
