The Mall, The Merrier has already reached the P100 million mark.
This is what Vice Ganda announced during the December 27, 2019 episode of It's Showtime.
"100 million thank yous," said Vice Ganda, the lead star of The Mall, The Merrier.
This Metro Manila Film Festival (MMFF) 2019 entry opened on Christmas Day, December 25.
The It's Showtime host congratulated his co-star Anne Curtis who is currently in Australia for her maternity leave.
Vice Ganda encouraged people to watch his MMFF 2019 entry by saying, "Sa isang buong taon wala tayong ginawa sa buong taon kundi magtrabaho. Number 1 ang masaya. Dun tayo. Ang The Mall, The Merrier feel good movie."
He pointed out that some cinemas in Visayas and Mindanao were unable to hold screenings these past few days because of the onslaught of Typhoon Ursula. "Ngayon pa lang magbubukas sa Visayas dahil sa bagyo."
Vice Ganda said that in one screening, the audience burst into laughter when he did his one dramatic scene in the movie. The ABS-CBN host then made this one request for moviegoers:
"Pag nag drama ako, huwag naman kayong umiyak. Pinaghirapan ko yun, ah."
Ion Perez joined Vice Ganda onstage and the comedian teased him by saying, "Sa mga naghahanap ng pictures ni Ion na may abs, panoorin niyo ang The Mall, The Merrier kasi nagkalat ang abs niya dun. Isang buong pelikula na hubad siya! Wala siyang damit, boxers lang siya!"
Vice Ganda's MMFF 2018 entry Fantastica reached the P100 million mark on its second day last year.
