Star Cinema’s hit-drama movie may still be showing in selected theaters but it’s going to be very limited since their new offering, “Forever and a Day,” starring Sam Milby and KC Concepcion just opened yesterday.
“In the Name of Love” needs at least P3-million this week in order to beat the record of “Catch Me…I’m In Love” as the no. 1 Pinoy movie (so far) for 2011 with a gross receipts of P120.21 million. It’s possible but it’s gonna be difficult to achieve.
Capturing the no. 1 slot again, in Philippine box-office, is 20th Century Fox’s “X-Men: First Class” with a haul of P38.49 million last weekend. The film has now raked-in a total P128.1 million in 2 weeks.
Kung Fu Panda 2, on the other hand, maintains second position while debuting films “Super 8” and “The Hangover Part II” settles for 3rd and 4th respectively.
Kung Fu Panda 2, by the way, has dislodged Thor as the biggest film in the Philippines so far for 2011. The Jack Black-starrer has already accumulated P188.7 million at the box-office in just 2 weeks!
Here’s the Philippine box office tally (Top 10) for the opening weekend of June 8 to 12, 2011 according to Box Office Mojo (premiering movies are highlighted in yellow):
