MANILA – It looks like the Star Cinema movie “A Second Chance” is on track to become the highest grossing Filipino film of all time.
This after the movie starring John Lloyd Cruz and Bea Alonzo breached the P300-million mark after only six days in theaters since it was released last November 25.
The 2014 MMFF entry "The Amazing Praybeyt Benjamin" holds the record of being the highest grossing Filipino film of all time. It earned over P400 million during its entire run.
Directed by Cathy Garcia-Molina, "A Second Chance" revisits the lives of Popoy (Cruz) and Basha (Alonzo) as they traverse the highs and lows of married life.
It also stars Dimples Romana, James Blanco, Bea Saw, Janus del Prado, and Ahron Villena.
It already holds the record of being the highest grossing non-Metro Manila Film Festival Filipino movie on its opening day.
It earned P43.3 million on November 25, beating out the P32 million 2015 record of the romantic comedy "Crazy Beautiful You," top-billed by Daniel Padilla and Kathryn Bernardo.
