Box Office: "Sa 'yo Lamang" grossed P22.18 million on its 1st week

Star Cinema's latest movie "Sa 'yo Lamang" grossed only P22.18 million for its first week (September 1 to 5).

That's way too low for a Star Cinema film!

The box office figure (courtesy of Box Office Mojo) is kinda unexpected because it's a star-studded film supposedly hoping to duplicate the success of Star Cinema's family drama in 2000, "Tanging Yaman", which was a huge hit.

It's also disappointing because "Sa 'yo Lamang" is topbilled by Bea Alonzo, who was a Box Office Queen in 2007 for "One More Chance" and possibly
this 2010 with "Miss You Like Crazy".

The P22.18M gross revenue is among the lowest opening week gross for a Filipino movie in 2010 and the 2nd lowest for Star Cinema, just behind "I'll Be There" which had P21.76 during its first week run.

But good thing though that the movie has been graded A by the Cinema Evaluation Board and it's most likely to reap awards in the future.

Here's an update on the box office rankings of the Pinoy films shown in 2010:
