This Guy’s in Love With You Mare has reportedly earned P200 million in a span of two weeks.
Toni Gonzaga, one of the stars of the comedy flick, announced this during the October 21 episode of ABS-CBN's showbiz talk show, The Buzz.
Aside from Toni, this romantic comedy film is topbilled by Vice Ganda and Luis Manzano.
“Mula po sa aming puso, nais po muna naming magpasalamat sa patuloy na sumusuporta, sa lahat ng nanood at manonood pa lang po. Natutuwa ako kasi first time ko ma-experience ang ganitong klaseng outcome ng pelikula ever in my life,” said Toni during the Sunday afternoon program.
This Guy’s in Love With You Mare is a co-production of Star Cinema and Viva Films. In the movie, Vice Ganda and Luis Manzano's characters were initially in a same-sex relationship. However, Luis broke up with Vice so he could propose to his girlfriend (portrayed by Toni). The heartbroken Vice Ganda pretends to be a macho guy in order to attract Toni and make Luis return to him.
According to Star Cinema, This Guy's In Love With You Mare earned P23 million on its opening day last October 10, 2012.
