'Sundo' just ranks behind movies of John Lloyd, Richard and Piolo

Sundo, which stars Yes! Mag's #4 Most Powerful Entertainer Robin Padilla, has topped the Philippine box office last weekend (March 18-22), with almost 18 million pesos earnings on its 1st 5 days, according to the figures released by Box Office Mojo.

Last three weeks' box-office champion You Changed My Life, starring John Lloyd Cruz and Sarah Geronimo, fell to 2nd place last weekend with over 11 million pesos gross earnings. You Changed My Life has already generated a total gross of 216.3 million pesos in 4 weeks, making it as the Philippines' highest-grossing film of all time.

Comparing Sundo's 1st 5 days gross with the figures of four other Pinoy movies released this year, the number only ranks 4th.

1st WEEKEND earnings of 2009 Pinoy Movies
1. You Changed My Life P97,893,449
2. When I Met U (stars Richard Gutierrez & KC Concepcion) P32,468,410
3. Love Me Again (stars Piolo Pascual & Angel Locsin) P29,488,584
4. Sundo (PHP 17,989,143)
5. Status: Single (stars Rufa Mae Quinto) P5,751,890

But at least, Sundo is doing better than Robin Padilla's 2008 movie Ikaw Pa Rin, Bongga Ka Boy! which only had P10.4 million during its first 5 days.
