MANILA—"Hello, Love, Goodbye" stormed historic territory when it premiered in July and ultimately went on to become the highest grossing Filipino film of all time.

So it came as a no surprise that the romance drama starring Kathryn Bernardo and Alden Richards was among the country's most Googled flicks in 2019.

The Cathy Garcia-Molina film, which tells the lives of overseas Filipino workers (OFW) in Hong Kong, captured the number 2 spot in Google search.

Topping "Hello, Love, Goodbye" is Hollywood juggernaut "Avengers: Endgame," the last in a 22-film arc featuring Marvel Universe superheroes.

The superhero blockbuster hauled in at least $2.7 billion in box office receipts worldwide to become the highest-grossing film of all time.

All of the searches in the Philippines, but "Hello, Love, Goodbye" focused on foreign films.

Making into the list are the Brie Larson-led "Captain Marvel" (No. 3), action-packed thriller "John Wick 3" (No. 4) and Sandra Bullock-helmed "Bird Box" (No. 5).

Meanwhile, Disney's animated smash hit "Frozen 2" landed at number 6, followed by the studio's live-action remake of "Aladdin."
