BuyBust, the action film of Anne Curtis, has earned almost PHP100 million in the global box office.
According to producer Reality Entertainment, the film directed by Erik Matti earned PHP97 million worldwide as of August 22, 2018. Viva Films co-produced this action flick that also stars Arjo Atayde and Filipino-American mixed martial arts (MMA) star Brandon Vera.
BuyBust premiered in Philippine cinemas on August 1 and screened for two weeks. However, it had to give way for the 2018 Pista ng Pelikulang Pilipino.
Starting August 22, BuyBust was again shown in select cinemas.
In Buy Bust, Anne is cast as Nina Manigan, a Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency (PDEA) agent whose team is trapped inside a drug den while being hunted by a gang and attacked by bloodthirsty citizens.
In a previous interview with PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal), Direk Erik revealed that it cost around US $1.6 million dollars (PHP 85.61 million pesos) to produce BuyBust.
