The eight official entries of the 41st Metro Manila Film Festival have earned P977 million nationwide as of January 5, 2016.
The MMFF Executive Committee revealed this through its social media accounts earlier today.
This figure is higher compared to last year when MMFF 2014 entries earned P949 million in a span of 12 days.
The MMFF Exe Comm did not reveal the individual box-office gross of the eight entries but it still maintained that the Top Four (in no particular order) are still:
My Bebe Love
Beauty and the Bestie
According to MMFF Exe Comm member Dominic Du, they deliberately do not disclose the ranking of the MMFF 2015 entries in order to avoid controversies.
However, film companies have separately announced the box-office gross of their entries.
My Bebe Love, starring Ai-Ai delas Alas and Vic Sotto, has reportedly earned P322 million in the box office as of January 3, 2016.
This romantic comedy movie also stars the AlDub love team of Maine Mendoza and Alden Richards.
This was revealed in a report of GMA News TV's afternoon news program Balita Pilipinas.
On the other hand, Beauty and the Bestie, which topbills Vice Ganda and Coco Martin, has already passed the P400 million mark.
The other competing entries of the MMFF 2015 are (in alphabetical order): All You Need is Pag-ibig; Buy Now Die Later; Honor Thy Father; and Nilalang.
