‘In the Name of Love’ Grosses P114.36-M in 4 Weeks, ‘X-Men’ Tops PH’s Box-Office

The Star Cinema romantic drama "In the Name of Love" is still on track to become the biggest Pinoy movie of the year.

As of June 5, the Aga Muhlach-Angel Locsin starrer has already accumulated P114.36 million at the box-office, just P5.85 million short in beating the current no. 1, “Catch Me…I’m In Love.” This is the film’s 4th week and it still has one more week to go before the film company releases their June offering, “Forever and a Day” starring Sam Milby and KC Concepcion.

Topping the Philippine box-office last weekend was “X-Men: First Class” with a decent 5-days haul of P71.1 million.

Previous leader, “Kung Fu Panda 2”, settled for second place with P53.5 million. It now has a 2 weeks-total P161 million, very much on track to beat Thor‘s record of being the biggest movie in the Philippines for 2011.

Here’s the Philippine box office tally (Top 10) for the opening weekend of June 1 to 5, 2011 according to Box Office Mojo (premiering movies are highlighted in yellow):

    Janice, my dear, halata namang maka-Marian ka. Ano kaya kung yung ini-stay mo dito lumibot ka na lang sa lugar nyo to promote ‘Temptation Island’ para kahit papaano maabot nito yung sinasabi mong 14M para naman mapatunayan mo na laos na nga si AL at reyna talaga si MR.

    At isa pa nga pala, ano bang hinihintay ng TI at hindi pa ito pinapalabas?

  30. Janice and GMA in LoserVille // June 9, 2011 at 10:12 am //

    to janice:

    It’s funny that you have that kind of mentality even if there are enough proofs that the movie, “In the Name of Love” is obviously very successful. It simply shows that you’re pathetic enough to confine in your own negativity. If you can’t read between the lines, I only have one question to ask:

    TANGA KA BA, O NAGTA-TANGAHAN LANG?

    Check your figures girl and try to read what the film critics have to say about this acclaimed film. That is what you get when you watch too much “no brainer shows” on the boobtube.

  31. @janice

    14 m??? duh wag mong igaya sa mga films ng gma okey…

  32. Filiphi Duavit // June 9, 2011 at 10:10 am //

    Dapat ang cast na lang ng Teptation Island ay sina Amaya/Darna/Dyesebel, Dwarfina, Ilumina, Grazilda, Koreana, Machete, Captain Barbell,Gagambino/Zaido. Ewan ko na lang kundi pa maging box-ffice fil of all times yan. Hi hi hi hi hi

  33. KAPAMILYA GOLD // June 9, 2011 at 10:10 am //

    before the year ends.. mawawala na sa listahan ang My Valentine Girls ni Captain Shakeys este Barbell pala. hihihi! wapak!

  34. cedes2011 // June 9, 2011 at 10:09 am //

    I just want to know. . . .available na ba ang In the Name of Love sa DVD or VCD. . .gus2 ko ng bumili. . . grabeh. . .. Angel Locsin number 1 talaga. . .

  35. despite ang lakas ng mga kalaban sa takilya ng ITNOL,like pirates,kung fu panda,xmen,fast five..
    nagawa pa rin nitong kumita ng malaki..:) one of philippines best ang ITNOL for me…:0

  36. lumevel up naman talaga ang acting ni Angel dito. gumaling talaga xa. nice movie. ☺ Congrats SC!

  37. Mama Lily Gavante // June 9, 2011 at 10:02 am //

    Sayang di ka namin makuha Angel. Kaya pinagsama-sama na lang namin powers nina Amaya, Dwarfina, Machete at ng ibang GMA starlets para sure na kumita ang Temptation Island.

  38. ..baka 14M lang talaga kinita! Alam mu naman ang SC kung mkapadding parang 22o! What do u think? Lol

  39. abangan nyo ang temptationisland…..
    sa kangkungan!

  41. Charing // June 9, 2011 at 9:56 am //

    Yan ang edge ng mga stars namin, meron silang Star Cinema. Kundi ka lumipat sa amin Angel, baka isa ka lang sa cast ng Temptation Island.

  42. putrizk // June 9, 2011 at 9:53 am //

  43. ChiFan2 // June 9, 2011 at 9:51 am //

    I’m being tempted to fly out to New Jersey to catch this movie, I can’t believe they didn’t include Chicago in the screenings:-( Anyway, I heard from a couple of friends from L.A. that the movie is definitely worth seeing. Congrats to the cast and Star Cinema!

  44. @3
    syempre hindi pa..
    kasi ung catch me..120m phil. lang pag kasama international gross P 181.24 million.
    so malamang yang 114 ng ITNOL ehhh philippines alone..

  45. family_first // June 9, 2011 at 9:49 am //

    @jadeganda, yung kasama dito sa gross ay mga sinehan lang dito sa maynila kadalasan at malalaking sinehan for those indpendent players sa ibang lugar hindi iyon kasama pati international screenings.

  46. go angel!
