Philippine Box Office Roundup 12

Box Office Mojo info came in late so apologies that the 12 th edition of my Philippine Box Office Roundup is jus posted today. Anywa you can read my previous recap (which was two weeks ago) here. And as always here are some notes with regards to my box office roundup:

  • The following box office stats are from the ever awesome Box Office Mojo's Philippine Box Office Index. Thus, my box office comparisons and analysis are only limited to what Box Office Mojo has in its records
  • Studios and local distributors sometimes issues press releases about the box office performance of their movies and there are instances that they do not exactly match the data Box Office Mojo have in hand. I'm not sure how wide Box Office Mojo's scope is with our local theaters but for the purposes of a consistent discussion and analysis I will only focus on the numbers posted at Box Office Mojo.
  • I added some stuff like the Mission Impossible : Ghost Protocol box office for 2012 since Box Office Mojo does not include that 2011 holdover on their Top Movies 2012 list. Meanwhile the box office numbers for the holdovers from the MMFF last year are not on BOM's list so they're not on here as well.
  • Box Office Mojo does not have the numbers for Ayala Cinemas Exclusive My Week with Marilyn so it's not on the charts below.

The Avengers continue to pull in JAW DROPPING BOX OFFICE PERFORMANCE! Yes I have to type that in all caps because The Avengers box office run is just insane! In 2 weeks, the movie is already the highest grossing movie ever in the country raking in $11.6 million / 487 million pesos in just two week easily surpassing the previous record holder, Transformers: Dark of the Moon, which earned $9.7 million / 420 million pesos last year. TRULY PHENOMENAL!

There were two other releases on that week and they did as best as they could. American Pie: The Reunion (Rated R-18 which no SM cinemas there) pulled a decent 7.8 million pesos while the horror flick Cabin the Woods pulled an OK 2.7 million pesos

Here are the Philippine Box Office charts (both in dollars and pesos) as I originally posted at the BoxOffice.com forums:
