It Takes A Man and A Woman starring John Lloyd Cruz and Sarah Geronimo had grossed P32.6 million on its first day of showing, the highest opening gross for a Filipino movie this year.
The figure was announced by Mico del Rosario, advertising and promotions manager of Star Cinema via Twitter. Showing in 185 cinemas on Black Saturday, the movie is now being screened in about 230 cinemas nationwide due to its box office appeal.

It Takes A Man and A Woman is the third installment in the love story of Laida Magtalas and Miggy Montenegro starting with A Very Special Love, which made P179.3 million in 2008 followed by the sequel You Changed My Life which earned P225.2 million in 2009.
After four years, it is expected that It Takes A Man and A Woman will top the box office success of its predecessors, knowing that the movie might be the last time we will see Laida and Miggy in the big screen.
Since yesterday, movie tickets for It Takes A Man and A Woman have been selling like pancakes and further reports on Sunday said that the movie has already grossed more than P50 million in just 2 days. No wonder this Sarah-Lloydie starrer is poised to be the highest-grossing Filipino movie of all time.
