ALL-TIME HIGHEST GROSSING FILIPINO FILMS by Jose N. Carreon  |  Posted in Articles  |  on Fri, Apr 12, 2013

Barely a quarter of the year 2013 has passed when another Star Cinema-Viva Films movie chalked impressive box office figures in a bid to break into the top three of the all-time highest grossing Filipino films.

It Takes a Man and a Woman, the third installment of a John Lloyd Cruz-Sarah Geronimo romantic comedy series, has already raked in a solid P276 million in the box office to vault to number 4 after just two weeks of showing.

The first two films on the same subject—A Very Special Love (2008) and You Changed My Life (2009)—are ranked eighth and ninth in the same all-time top grossing list. All three films were directed by Cathy Garcia-Molina.

It is predicted that It Takes a Man and a Woman may improve its ranking after it hits the provincial circuit. It is just P9 million short to overtake current number 3 No Other Woman. It is P64 million short of number 2 The Unkabogable Praybeyt Benjamin and P75 million short of top-ranked Sisterakas.

Interesting trivia about the 20 all-time top grossing Filipino films show two directors figuring prominently in the list, namely Wenn Deramas who boasts of six films and Cathy Garcia-Molina who has seven. Director Ruel Bayani and Tony Y. Reyes account for two films each.

Vice Ganda stars in three films which occupy the first, second and sixth slots of the six top grossing films of all time. Derek Ramsay stars in films that occupy the second, third and 15th places. John Lloyd Cruz is the leading man of the fourth, fifth, eighth, ninth, 11th, 15th, 17th and 18th films in the list. Ai-Ai de las Alas, thanks to her Tanging Ina series, is leading actress in films that occupy the first, seventh, tenth, 14th and 16th places.
