Philippine Box Office Roundup 19



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.

***

Filipinos love Scrat and company as the 4th installment of the Ice Age series Ice Age: Continental Drift opened strongly in the Philippine box office earning 43.8 million pesos. The movie is poised to be this year's top animated movie as it is already close with the current champ, Madagascar 3: Europe's Most Wanted, gross of 56 million pesos.

Other new releases this week is the Channing Tatum stripper movie Magic Mike which earned an OK (for the type of movie this is) 8 million pesos and the SM-exclusive Act of Valor that earned 2 million pesos, which is line of the earnings of previous SM-exclusive cinemas

The Amazing Spider-man cross 300 million mark, already earning 320 million pesos in 3 weeks. But the movie will be hit badly as The Dark Knight Rises invaded the theaters last week although not as dominant as The Avengers and the aforementioned as the practically had 90% of the screens when they opened which is not the case for Christopher Nolan which faces the sequel of the more famil- friendly Ice Age. And with the almost 3-hour runtime, don't expect the movie to earn as huge as first two superhero flicks

Here's the latest Philippine Box Office which I originally posted at BoxOffice.com's forums:
