"Petrang Kabayo" so strong in the box office

Viva Films' "Petrang Kabayo" is way too strong in the box office, collecting more than P50million on its first 5 days.

The movie which stars Vice Ganda and is directed by Wenn Deramas earned P53,240,879 for its opening week or first 5 days (October 13 to 17, 2010), becoming the 2nd highest Opening Week Gross for 2010.

1. Miss You Like Crazy P67.6M
2. Petrang Kabayo P53.2M
3. You to Me
Are Everything P48.8M
4. Hating Kapatid P42.3M
5. Here Comes
the Bride P42.1M
6. Paano Na Kaya P41.4M

It's amazing because it was just easy for "Petrang Kabayo" to reach P50M while the two recent releases by Star Cinema ("Sa Yo Lamang" and "I Do") were having a hard time to reach at least 50 million pesos even after many weeks of running in theaters.

It's now safe to say that Petrang Kabayo will be the 3rd Filipino movie to reach P100M mark after "Miss You Like Crazy" and "Here Comes The Bride".

Here's the latest box-office ranking (figures courtesy of Box Office Mojo):
