'Si Agimat at Si Enteng Kabisote' conquers the MMFF 2010 Box-Office | Sequel already set for 2012

Si Agimat at si Enteng Kabisote has topped the MMFF 2010 Box-Office with over 30 million-peso gross receipts on its first day.

No official figures yet, but according to the estimates reported by Showbiz Central, the said movie which is co-produced by GMA Films, Imus Productions, Octo Arts Films, APT Entertainment and MZET Films had an estimated 1st-day gross of P32 million, the highest opening gross ever by a Filipino movie.

It isn't surprising because "Si Agimat at Si Enteng Kabisote" stars two MMFF Kings: Sen. Ramon 'Bong' Revilla Jr and Vic Sotto, whose respective movie in the past MMFFs were really huge hits.

The movie definitely also benefited from being given the chance to promote both on GMA 7 and in some ABS-CBN shows (thru news features and taped interviews with Bong and Vic).

MMFF exec committee Ric Camaligan was interviewed by DZMM this afternoon and he revealed the opening box-office rankings of the 8 entries (also reported by ABS-CBN News):

1. Si Agimat at Si Enteng Kabisote
2. Ang Tanging Ina Mo: Last Na 'To
3. Dalaw
4. Shake, Rattle & Roll 12
5. Super Inday and the Golden Bibe
6. Rosario
7. Father Jejemon
8. RPG Metanoia

PEP's @scoopbox has unofficial figures, but with different rankings:

1. Si Agimat at Si Enteng Kabisote P31M
2. Ang Tanging Ina Mo: Last Na 'To P20M
3. Dalaw P12.5M
4. Shake, Rattle & Roll 12 P11.8M
5. RPG Metanoia P5.1M
6. Super Inday and the Golden Bibe P4.7M
7. Rosario P3.2M
8. Father Jejemon P1.4M


And because of this huge success of "Si Agimat at si Enteng Kabisote", Senator Bong has hinted that a sequel is coming possibly in 2012, not in 2011, coz he has Panday Part 2, which is being prepared for the 37th Metro Manila Film Festival 2011.
