Philippine Box Office Roundup 22




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.
***

Disney-Pixar's latest film Brave tops the Philippine box office earning 36 million pesos. I must say this is a good performance as this is on par with Cars 2's and Madagascar 3's opening week. Earlier this year, The Lorax did poorly in the box office so new material for animated flicks are not a safe bet in the local box office these days.

Numbers for Star Cinema's horror flick The Healing is finally available and the movie earned 74 million pesos in 2 weeks, good enough to grab the 3rd spot in the local movies chart. The movie has a chance to reach 100 million before it exits the theaters. Also new this week is Step Up: The Revolution which opened with 25 million pesos.

Here is the latest Philippine Box Office tally as originally posted at BoxOffice forums:
