'Catch Me I'm In Love' rules Philippine box-office with P52.95 million in 5 days

'Catch Me I'm In Love', which stars Sarah Geronimo and Gerald Anderson, is the 4th Pinoy film to open this 2011 but it's so far the only certified box-office hit of the year.

Figures for the period March 23-27, 2011 are now available at BoxOfficeMojo.com and posted there is the P52.95 million 'Catch Me I'm In Love' in its first five days.

The Star Cinema-Viva Films co-produced movie topped the Philippine weekend box-office for that period, beating other new releases such as 'Sucker Punch', 'Justin Bieber: Never Say Never' and 'Limitless'.

That's quite a strong turnout because it's higher than the two box-office hits last year ("My Amnesia Girl" with 5-day opening gross of P43.9M and "Here Comes the Bride" with 5-day opening of P42.1M), and it almost surpassed the P53.2M first 5 days earnings of 'Petrang Kabayo'.

And when compared to the 1st 5 days grosses of Sarah's previous films, 'Catch Me I'm In Love' opening weekend almost reached the P58.45 opening weekend of 'A Very Special Love' in 2008, far lower than 'You Changed My Life' with P97.89M in 2009, but it's definitely much higher than last year's 'Hating Kapatid' with P43.1 M.

The movie also fared better than Gerald's films with Kim Chiu shown last year. 'Paano Na Kaya' had P41.4M and 'Till My Heartaches End' earned P33.0M during their first 5 days.

Meanwhile, 'Who's That Girl' which was solely produced by VIVA and released last March 2 has only earned P56.91 million in 4 weeks.

No data available yet from Box Office Mojo for the over-all gross receipts of February releases "Bulong" and "My Valentine Girls". But "Bulong" earned P67.27 million in 4 weeks while "My Valentine Girls" raked in only P44.26 million in 3 weeks.
