Philippine Box Office Roundup 20



For last week's recap, go 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 Dark Knight Rises opens with a strong 98.6 million pesos. That's the third best opening after The Avengers and The Amazing Spider-man but don't get me wrong as this is a good opening for The Dark Knight sequel as the movie is darker and longer than the other two which would not be as appetizing to the family audience which made a good percentage of the grosses of the first two superhero movies. Plus the movie is shown in 2D only unlike the first two which had 3D versions to boost their grosses. The Dark Knight earned around 150 million pesos back in 2008 and The Dark Knight Rises is certain to surpass that.

Here is the latest Philippine Box Office tally as I originally posted at Box Office.com forums:
