‘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):

HINIHINTAY NILANG MAGKAMALI AKO. ANO BANG GAGAWIN KO FRIEND???

    ANGEL: JUST BE YOURSELF MARE, DON’T THINK OF THEM, DON’T LET THEM INTO YOUR NERVES. YOU CAN DO BETTER THAN THAT. LOOK AT ME IM A VERY SUCCESSFUL ACTRESS NOW, I HAVE NUMEROUS COMMERCIAL ENDORSEMENTS, HIGHLY ANTICIPATED PROGRAMS AND HIGHLY CRITICIZE MOVIES. I HAVE NOTHING IN MY MIND THAT I COULD ASK FOR. JUST ALWAYS FIND A TIME TO SPECIALIZE YOUR CRAFT, WE ARE HERE TO ENTERTAIN THE PEOPLE, NOT TO ARGUE WITH THEM. IF YOU RECEIVE HATE MAILS, HATE EMAILS OR IF THEY SAY ANYTHING THATS NOT GOOD AT YOU, JUST THINK OF IT WITHOUT CAVILNESS AND YOU WILL UNDERSTAND ITS INTREPID MEANING LIMPIDLY.

    ANGEL: PEOPLE CAN SAY ANYTHING OR THROW AWAY BAD THINGS ABOUT US, WE CANT BLAME THEM, WE ARE THEIR MIRRORS, EVERYTHING WE DO REFLECTS AGAINST US, WE ARE THE ONLY PERSON WHO KNOWS OUR SELF ENTIRELY. BE IMPERVIOUS. WHATEVER WE DO, AT THE END OF THE DAY OUR FAMILY ARE ALWAYS THERE TO LAUGH WITH US AND CRY WITH US.

    MARIAN: WISH KO LANG MAGING GAYA MO AKO NA HINDI NAGPAPAAPEKTO SA INTRIGA. BASTA NO MATTER WHAT HAPPENED, WHATEVER THEY SAY ABOUT OUR FRIENDSHIP WE
    WERE ALWAYS REMAIN AS GOOD FRIENDS. I OWE MY FAME AND SUCCESS TO YOU.

    ANGEL: NO PROBLEM MARE, FRIENDS FOREVER

    MARIAN: THANKS FRIEND, YOUR MY GUARDIAN ANGEL!!!!

    ABS-CBN is floored by the recent achievement of its movie, “In the Name of Love,” which landed on the Associated Press list of Top 20 highest-grossing movies for last month. The list was based on a Hollywood.com report.

    The network said it was a “happy surprise” for the people behind the movie, which had taken a year to make. “However, we don’t know [how the ranking was arrived at],” said Roxy Liquigan, ad prom officer of Star Cinema, ABS-CBN film production arm.

    An AP story dated May 19 put the Olivia Lamasan drama in the 15th slot among movies that led the international box-office race that weekend. According to the report, “In the Name of Love” grossed $1,917, 443 in 87 locations around the world, excluding North America.

    The top five in the report, written by Paul Dergarabedian, were Hollywood films “Fast (and Furious) 5,” “Thor,” “Priest,” “Rio” and “Water for Elephants.” The list was compiled by Rentrak Theatrical and first released by Hollywood.com. Dergarabedian is president of the Box-Office Division of Hollywood.com and is a longtime box-office analyst for AP.

    Liquigan is actually perplexed, because the Lamasan drama, which premiered in Manila on May 11, started its international screening only last weekend in key areas in the United States, Canada and the Middle East, and only on weekends.

    “In the Name of Love” is the love story of a dance coach (Aga Muhlach) and his student (Angel Locsin), who is about to marry a politician’s son (Jake Cuenca).

    Liquigan said Rentrak could be “just a new group.” Otherwise, he said, Star Cinema films like Chito Roño’s “Sukob,” Cathy Garcia-Molina’s “You Changed My Life,” and Mae Cruz’s “Catch Me I’m In Love,” all of which had broken box-office records as well, would have been listed in their respective periods of release.

    (A quick search on the Net revealed that Rentrak is a media measurement services provider, among other things. Its International Box-Office Essentials brand “provides clients with box-office information for 26 countries. The data is collected through an electronic connection with thousands of theater box offices,” according to http://www.rentrak.com.)

    “In any case, this means a lot to us,” said Liquigan. “It’s an indicator that we’re now at par with Hollywood films when it comes to viewership.”
