MANILA - The much anticipated romantic film "The Achy Breaky Hearts" has earned an opening day gross of P14 million from more than 170 theaters, Star Cinema announced Wednesday night.
It is the fourth film from the production outfit this year to break the P10-million mark on its debut following "Everything About Her" (P15 million), "Just the 3 of Us" (P16 million), and "Love Me Tomorrow" (P13 million).
The Angel Locsin-starrer "Everything About Her" and "Just the 3 of Us," which was topbilled by John Lloyd Cruz and Jennylyn Mercado, went on to reach P100 million.
"The Achy Breaky Hearts," which is directed by Antoinette Jadaone, is the fifth film from Star Cinema to be released in theaters this year.
Led by actress Jodi Sta. Maria, Ian Veneracion, and Richard Yap, "The Achy Breaky Hearts" is about a 30-year-old woman named Chinggay (Sta. Maria) and the stigma that comes with being single at that age.
