‘Ang Babae Sa Septic Tank’ Grosses P26.28-M in 2 Weeks

The Cinemalaya 2011 big winner "Ang Babae sa Septic Tank" grosses P26.28 million in 2 weeks even though it was shown in less than 50 theaters.

The Eugene Domingo starrer emerged as this year’s Cinemalaya Independent Film Festival Best Picture in the New Breed category. After it’s successful screening during the festival, it was picked-up by Star Cinema for a limited commercial run.

Topping the local box-office race last week is the 3D movie “The Smurfs” followed by the second weekend screening of “Rise of the Planet of the Apes.”

Debuting at no. 3 is “Cowboys and Aliens.” “Captain America” settles for fourth, “Ang Babae sa Septic Tank” follows at fifth and the fifth week screening of “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2” occupies the sixth position.

Here’s the Philippine box office tally (Top seven) for the opening weekend of August 10 to 14, 2011 according to Box Office Mojo (premiering movies are highlighted in yellow):
