Star Cinema opens the year 2014 with a big box office hit courtesy of Bride for Rent starring the kilig tandem of Kim Chiu and Xian Lim. After only 8 days in theaters, Bride for Rent has already crossed the P200-million mark in gross ticket sales.
The said figure was announced by the movie's lead star Kim Chiu who posted the above photo on her official Instagram account Friday.
"Maraming, maraming salamat po! Sobra! Thank you Papa God! Thank you sa lahat ng nanood. Sa lahat ng nakitawa and nakiyak sa amin, maraming, maraming, maraming salamat po," she said in the image's caption.
Bride For Rent has such an impressive run in cinemas, raking over P100 million in just 4 days. The movie is the most successful Star Cinema movie released in January after the Metro Manila Film Festival. It is now the highest-grossing KimXi movie, beating last year's Bakit Hindi Ka Crush Ng Crush Mo which took over two weeks to earn P100 million.
Bride for Rent is expected to hit P300 million if the warm support of viewers still continue. Directed by Mae Czarina Cruz and written by Carmi Raymundo, the movie also stars Pilita Corrales, Tirso Cruz III, Dennis Padilla, Matt Evans, Martin del Rosario, and Empoy Marquez.
