Philippine Box Office Roundup 18


To check out last week's roundup click here and as always a couple of reminders and disclaimers:
  • 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 Amazing Spider-man easily jumps to 2nd place for the Philippine Box Office 2012 tally already earning a massive 268 million pesos in 2 weeks! In any other year, that's good enough to top the chart but well there was this little movie called The Avengers which posted mindblowing numbers but nevertheless The Amazing Spider-man's should never be discounted.

There's only one new release for that week and that was the genre mash-up Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter which earned a solid 24.7 million pesos.

Here's the Philippine Box Office charts as I originally posted at Box Office.com's forums:
