The 2013 Metro Manila Film Festival (MMFF) is on track to be the most successful edition in the history of MMFF. This year's entries broke box office records on its first 2 days and maintained a strong presence until the third day of the annual festival.
My Little Bossings still leads with earnings now close to a P100 million followed by Girl Boy Bakla Tomboy. Lone horror movie Pagpag ranked 3rd while Kimmy Dora Prequel is unmoved in 4th place.
The festival organizers are yet to release official box office figures for all the entries but rankings of the eight films are unchanged since the second day of MMFF 2013. According to MMDA, this year's two-day festival gross of P234 million is 34% higher than last year.
Trailing in earnings are MMFF 2013 Best Picture 10,000 Hours starring Robin Padilla, Boy Golden: Shoot to Kill of ER Ejercito and KC Concepcion, the historical biopic Pedro Calungsod: Batang Martir, and the dance musical Kaleidoscope World.
It is expected that 10,000 Hours winning 14 trophies including the Best Picture award in last night's "Gabi ng Parangal" will boost its popularity to at least grab a spot in the top 4 movies this year. The fictional film, inspired by Sen. Panfilo Lacson, was directed by Bb. Joyce Bernal who also bagged the Best Director award.
