'One True Love' not one of the Top 10 Box Office Hits of 2008

Dingdong Dantes and Marian Rivera were considered as the hottest loveteam when they made two hit TV series such as Marimar and Dyesebel, but as far as their movie 'One True Love' is concerned, their tandem is not really that hot as the movie finds it hard to enter the Top 10 Highest Grossing Films of 2008.

As of November 30, 2008, 'One True Love', which premiered in theaters last November 19, has a total gross earnings of 53.2 million pesos, which only ranks 11th highest grossing film of the year.

I expected a lot from this movie especially that their teleseryes were consistent in getting 40+ ratings, according to AGB Nielsen Media Research.

In February, Marian was paired to Richard Gutierrez in the Valentine movie 'My Bestfriend's Girlfriend' and it was a hit, currently #4 in the Philippine Box Office for 2008.

But, with the "not so favorable" box-office results of 'One True Love', it's safe to say that the success of 'My Bestfriend's Girlfriend' can be solely attributed to Richard, who also made another hit last August via 'For the First Time' with KC Concepcion.

Meanwhile, 'Scaregivers' which stars Jose Manalo and Wally Bayola had an amazing start, with a 5-day box-office gross of 13.9 million pesos.

  1. You cannot compare the total gross earnings of the movie One true love to those movies that were shown ahead of time.

  2. Yes Anonymous, but you can tally the earnings specifically for a period of time (say from premiere/1st day of showing to 4 weeks)

  3. kung sino man yung unang nag comment dyan hahaha accept mo na lang na hindi talaga ganun ka sikat si marian para pag aksayahan ng tao na magbayad ng movie ticket...kadalasan sa mga movie na napasali sa top 10 ay gawang star cinema maganda kc mga storya at talagang mga sikat yung artista at magagaling umarte..
