The first movie of Sarah Geronimo and Coco Martin, Maybe This Time, is now a blockbuster hit after reaching the P100 million mark.
This was announced by Star Cinema Ad Prom manager Mico del Rosario last June 4. On his Instagram account, del Rosario posted:
"P100M as of today! Congratulations Team #MaybeThisTime! To God Be The Glory!"
The co-production of Star Cinema and Viva Films was able to achieve this feat a week after its nationwide premiere last May 28.
The film—which is about a simple city girl Steph and a small town boy Tonio who fall in love but get separated by ambition and the need to provide for family—features a theme that resonates with many. When they cross paths seven years later through a fateful assignment made by the girl's sophisticated PR boss Monica (played by Ruffa Gutierrez) for a new client, some complications arise: the client here is Tonio who is now Monica's boyfriend.
Maybe This Time will open on June 6 in the U.S. in 35 theatres in the states of Washington, California, Nevada, Arizona, Illinois, Ohio, Texas, Alabama, Virginia, Maryland, New York, New Jersey, Florida and Hawaii.
Also on June 6, it will screen in Canada in 12 theatres in the cities of Montreal, Ottawa, Scarborough, Toronto, Mississauga, Winnipeg, Calgary, Edmonton, Surrey, Vancouver, Saskatoon and Regina. Later this June, the movie will be seen internationally in Australia, New Zealand, Singapore, Hong Kong, Greece, Ireland, Norway, France, United Kingdom, Qatar, Bahrain and United Arab Emirates.
Directed by Jerry Lopez Sineneng, this movie is written by Anton Santamaria and Melai Monge. It also stars Ogie Diaz, Dennis Padilla, Marlann Flores, Zeppi Borromeo, Garlic Garcia, Minnie Aguilar, Buboy Garovillo, and Shamaine Buencamino.
