Despite the Luzon-wide blackout caused by typhoon Basyang, Cinco grossed P11 million on its opening day last July 14. This is based on a report from the film’s producer, Star Cinema. It will have an international screening in Guam (Micronesia Mall) from July 23 to August 5, 2010.

Direk Frasco Mortiz of the "Braso" episode points out that this film will cater to all age groups: "Siguradong may magugustuhan ang mga manonood dahil may kani-kaniyang flavor bawat episode.. for the teenagers, andyan ang ’Braso’ episode, yung may gusto ng medyo cerebral, yung ’Mata’ episode na ginawa ni Direk Ato [Bautista]. Matatawa, maiiyak at matatakot kayong lahat.. Hindi po advisable panoorin mag-isa, kaya, make sure na may kasama kayong manood ng sine para mas masaya."


The Gigger Boys, Sam Concepcion, AJ Perez and Robi Domingo are very proud to be a part of this overwhelming success. "We are truly grateful po sa pagkaka cast sa amin dito sa pelikulang ito," said Sam. "Nakahinga na po kami ng maluwag dahil naramdaman namin ang pagtanggap ng mga manonood sa pinaghirapan naming material po." AJ added. "Can’t wait for our next project with Star Cinema!" Robi said in a very happy tone.


Direk Enrico Santos of the "Paa" episode helped conceptualize this omnibus film. "Isa pong malaking karangalan na kami ay inyong pinagkatiwalaan at sinuportahan. Makakaasa po kayong lalo pa naming pagbubutihin ang aming craft para mabigyan pa kayo ng mga quality films katulad ng Cinco."


The lead actress of "Paa," Jodi Sta. Maria, expressed her happiness for being part of this horror film. "I would like to thank my ABS-CBN and Star Cinema family for entrusting me with projects like this."


Mariel Rodriguez of the "Mukha" episode was equally ecstatic about the movie. "Nakakatuwa po at nakakalambot ng puso ang overwhelming support na binigay sa amin ng mga fans...pati na po ng Star Cinema. Napaka professional ni Direk Nick [Olanka] and you will be awed by the way he directs a film na katulad nito."

Cathy Garcia-Molina marks her first time to direct a horror-themed episode through the "Puso" episode. She enthused, "Kinakabahan pa din po ako habang showing pa ang pelikula.. First time ko kasi mag direct ng horror kaya may kabog pa din sa dibdib kung hanggang saan tatanggapin ng mga manonood."


Pokwang and Zanjoe Marudo had a good time working with each other. "Kabado lang po ako dun sa kissing scene namin ni Zanjoe, pero, talagang pinaghandaan ko po yun.. Zanjoe Marudo yata yun," shared Pokwang.


"Natuwa po ako sa reaksyon nung mga tao nung premiere night. Nakakataba po ng puso ang pagtanggap nila sa amin ni Pokwang," said Zanjoe.


"Mata" stars Maja Salvador and Rayver Cruz were in high spirits after they strutted on the red carpet. "Nagpapasalamat po kami sa mga taong dumalo sa premiere at sa mga patuloy na sumusuporta sa amin," said Maja. "Kaya, sa mga hindi pa nakakapanood, sugod na kayo sa mga sinehan at huwag papahuli!" added Rayver in an interview.


"Limang Kasalanan. Limang Kabayaran. Limang Kwento. Isang pelikula." Cinco is still being screened in more than 100 theaters nationwide. It is graded "B" by the Cinema Evaluation Board and rated PG-13 by the Movie and Television Review and Classification Board.
