Barcelona: A Love Untold, starring Daniel Padilla and Kathryn Bernardo, has grossed P130 million after five days in the box-office.
Star Cinema AdProm manager Mico del Rosario announced via Instagram that Barcelona earned this amount as of yesterday, September 18.
This Kathniel film opened in Philippine cinemas last Wednesday, September 14.
In Barcelona: A Love Untold, Daniel is cast as Ely, a student taking his masters in Architecture and at the same time working as a tour guide and waiter in Barcelona. He is a man trying to move on from a past love.
Kathryn Bernardo plays Mia who travels to Barcelona to start anew. She wants to make up for her past mistakes and prove herself worthy.
Together, Mia and Ely travel through their individual struggles until they find themselves falling for each other. The story details a budding romance until Mia realizes that Ely has yet to move on from his past.
The story is inspired by the story of the church of Sagrada Familia which was designed by architect Antoni Gaudi as the people’s apology to God but has remained unfinished because of his death in 1926.
According to Barcelona writer Carmi Raymundo: “So hanggang ngayon hindi natatapos ang apology na ‘yon, so ang gandang metaphor. Ang gandang metaphor sa character na either hindi pa natatapos magmahal, mangarap. Kasi di ba tayo naman kapag gumagawa tayo ng kuwento ang ganda na naging coherent ‘yong lugar sa kuwento ng pelikula.”
Directed by Olivia Lamasan, this romance drama also stars Aiko Melendez, Joey Marquez, Ana Capri, and teen actor Joshua Garcia.
It is graded B by the Cinema Evaluation Board.
Barcelona: A Love Untold earned P23 million on its first day at the Philippine box office last September 14.
