'Hancock' rules in the Philippines, gets P46M on its first weekend

Will Smith's Hancock registered a revenue of $66 million in the US last weekend, to become Smith's 2nd best opening weekend ever after his 2007 hit I Am Legend with $77 million.

In the Philippines, Hancock also makes a record and can be considered a box office success.

The movie $1,009,285 or 45.9 million pesos, one of the best opening weekend sales in the country this 2008.

Filipino movie Caregiver has been dropped from the Top 10 last weekend, but it now has a total gross estimated revenue of 139.5 million pesos.

However, comparing it to the earnings of last year's smash hit One More Chance, Caregiver's total is far behind and could still be overtaken by one or two Tagalog releases which are yet to be shown on the coming months.
