MANILA – Sarah Geronimo and John Lloyd Cruz’s "Finally Found Someone" is off to a blazing start as it crossed the P100-million mark just after four days since its premiere, Star Cinema announced on Saturday night.
The film began its run on Wednesday, raking in P20 million despite the bad weather due to a tropical storm that affected parts of the country including Metro Manila.
In a previous interview, Geronimo and Cruz said they are very grateful that a lot of people still came out to watch their movie despite the rains.
“Siyempre po we feel blessed. Kahit na bumabagyo, actually worried po ako kasi ang lakas nga ng ulan so mas safety nila 'yung iisipin mo, pero may mga pumupunta pa rin talaga, so thankful kami sa inyo. Maraming, maraming salamat po,” Geronimo said.
Cruz, on the other hand, is happy with the feedback they are receiving so far.
“Iyon lagi ang mystery kapag ipapalabas ang pelikula. Hindi mo talaga alam kung ano ang magiging epekto. Ako, never ako naging confident sa magiging reception ng tao. I can be confident doon sa quality, doon sa ginawa namin na produkto. Pero as to kung paano tatanggapin, iyon ang laging mystery para sa akin,” he said.
Directed by Theodore Boborol, “Finally Found Someone” tells the story of Aprilyn (Geronimo), who found herself heartbroken after being left at the altar. She later on met Cruz’s character, Raffy, who would “help her find her happy ending.”
“Finally Found Someone” is the fourth film of Geronimo and Cruz. Other films featuring the tandem include “It Takes a Man and a Woman” (2013), “You Changed My Life” (2009), and “A Very Special Love” (2008), all of which are box office hits.
