The premiere night of No Other Woman was cancelled last Tuesday, September 27, due to Typhoon Pedring. The following day, the Star Cinema-Viva Film co-production was able to open in cinemas nationwide.
Topbilled by Anne Curtis, Derek Ramsay and Cristine Reyes, the movie was able to gross P15 million during its opening day last Wednesday, September 28.
According to Star AdProm director Roxy Liquigan, the movie was able to reach the P100 million mark last night, October 2.
Directed by Ruel S. Bayani, No Other Woman has been graded A by the Cinema Evaluation Board, allowing it to receive a 100-percent exemption from amusement taxes. Meanwhile, the movie is rated R-13 by the Movie and Television Review and Classification Board.
The movie tackles the complicated situation of a married man named Ram Escaler (Derek Ramsay) who is the object of attention of two women. He is torn between his "perfect wife" Charmaine (portrayed by Cristine Reyes) and his mistress Kara (played by Anne Curtis).

GRETCHEN BARRETTO WANTS TO WORK WITH CRISTINE. In the trailer of the movie, the name of Gretchen Barretto was mentioned when Carmi Martin delivers the line: "I-pack up mo si Lucy Torres, ilabas mo na si Gretchen Barretto, ako na ang bahala sa red stilettos mo."
This pushed Charmaine (played by Cristine) to show her feisty side and fight for her husband Ram who becomes tempted by another woman.
Gretchen was quoted as saying in an interview with The Buzz: "During the first day pinanood ko po ang No Other Woman. Hindi ho ako mapakali, nakita ko ang trailer, I said, 'Oh my God. This is the kind of movie I want to watch.'"
The actress also expressed her admiration for the younger sister of Ara Mina by saying, "Cristine Reyes, I'm her fan. I'm really a fan. I want to work with you. Kasi napapanood ko siya, e. Gusto ko ang pagkatapang niya... Ayaw ko ng nagpapaapi."
For her part, Cristine is grateful to be given the chance to portray the legal wife named Charmaine in No Other Woman. "Dalang dala ako sa character," she admitted.
When asked if she ever became the other woman in a relationship, Cristine pointed out that it has never happened to her.
Last September 14, Cristine celebrated the first anniversary of her relationship with Rayver Cruz. She says about this milestone: "Hindi ako makapaniwala na one year na. Parang kahapon lang ang gulo-gulo. Happy ako siyempre kasi umabot kami sa isang taon."
