Here are John Lloyd Cruz's 10 highest-grossing movies in the box office

John Lloyd Cruz's movies with Sarah Geronimo (left) and Bea Alonzo (right) are all considered box-office hits.



Before John Lloyd Cruz took an indefinite leave from show business, he top-billed several films that were considered box-office hits.

In fact, he was hailed as the Box-Office King five times by the Guillermo Mendoza Memorial Scholarship Foundation during its annual Box Office Entertainment Awards. 

He also had more than ten movies that reached the P100 million mark in the box office.

With the latest news about John Lloyd being the father of Ellen Adarna's baby, it might take a long while before the ABS-CBN actor can make a movie once again.

PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal) looks back on 10 films of John Lloyd that earned more than a hundred million pesos in ticket sales.
