‘Forever and a Day’ Earns P23.27 Million in First 5 Days

Star Cinema's "Forever and a Day" starring Sam Milby and KC Concepcion had an opening weekend gross of P23.27 million at the box-office.

The Superhero movie Green Lantern topped Philippine box-office for the opening weekend of June 15 to 19 with a haul of P72 million, according to Box Office Mojo. And from the period of up to June 20 including the extended holiday for Jose Rizal’s 150th birth anniversary, the Ryan Reynolds-starrer accumulated P85.66 million, this one according to Warner Bros. Philippines.

The figure has now become the holder of the year’s biggest opening weekend for a Warner title surpassing “Red Riding Hood” and “Sucker Punch”, and the second-biggest of 2011 industry-wide outgrossing “X-Men: First Class,” “Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides” and “Thor”.

Placing second, on the other hand, is local romantic drama “Forever and a Day” with P23.27 million box-office gross in its first 5 days. This is really tough for the Sam Milby-KC Concepcion starrer because their film is vying against 7 Hollywood summer movies and getting the no. 2 spot is already commendable.

Meanwhile, “X-Men: First Class” settled for no. 3 after topping Philippine box-office for 2 weeks in a row. “Super 8” is at no.4 while “Mr. Popper’s Penguins” starring Jim Carrey debuted at no. 5.

Here’s the Philippine box office tally (Top 10) for the opening weekend of June 15 to 19, 2011 according to Box Office Mojo (premiering movies are highlighted in yellow):
