'Just One Summer' vs 'The Reunion' Box-Office Battle begins August 15

Advertisements
"Just One Summer" and "The Reunion" will battle it out in the box-office starting Wednesday, August 15, 2012. [Poll: What movie are you going to watch? (Scroll down to cast your vote.)]

We used to have only one Filipino film opening on a particular date in recent years, but not on August 15 as these two Pinoy movies, "Just One Summer" and "The Reunion", open in cinemas on the same day.

This, I should say, is a real battle in the Philippine box-office, as exciting as the TV ratings war between GMA and ABS-CBN.

Just One Summer Movie Poster

"Just One Summer" is a romantic drama film produced by GMA Films and stars Kapuso's hottest teen loveteam of today, the JuliElmo (Julie Anne San Jose and Elmo Magalona).

The Reunion Movie Poster

Star Cinema's "The Reunion" meanwhile is a coming-of-age comedy film which has no solid loveteam to boast on its cast, but it has some of Kapamilya's really hot young stars: Enchong Dee, Xian Lim, Enrique Gil, Jessy Mendiola, Megan Young, Julia Montes, Bangs Garcia and Kean Cipriano.

While "The Reunion" is directed by still untested Frasco Mortiz, "Just One Summer" is under the direction of Mac C. Alejandre, who already has a string of movie hits.

It reminds me of the box-office face off between GMA Films' "Let The Love Begin" and Star Cinema's "Dreamboy" which both opened on the same day in 2005. "Let The Love Begin", which starred Richard Gutierrez and Angel Locsin, and also directed by Mac Alejandre, won the box-office crown that time over 'Dreamboy' which paired Piolo Pascual and Bea Alonzo for the first and the last time.

"Just One Summer" or "The Reunion": Which movie will you watch on August 15? Take the poll...
