Philippine Box Office Roundup 25

To check out the previous recap click here and always 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 and local movie Gun Guni so it's not on the charts below.


It's a slow week in theaters this week with no new releases making that much noise. The best of the bunch is Star Cinema's horror movie Amorosa which earned a so-so P11 million. The other releases political comedy The Campaign (P6 million), local musical I Do Bidoo Bidoo (P5.8 million), horror flick The Possession (P5 million) and concert movie/docudrama Katy Perry: Part of Me 3D (P3.4 million) all underwhelmed.

As for the rest of the chart, The Bourne Legacy crosses the P200 million mark earning P202 million in over a month, it won't beat The Dark Knight Rises (P222 million) but it's undeniably a great box office performance. Meanwhile, The Expendables 2 surpasses The Expendable's gross as the movie earned P89 million pesos already compared to the P75 million the first movie earned two years ago. Lastly, The Reunion surpasses Moron 5 and The Crying Lady as the 4th biggest earning local movie with a cume of P68 million.

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