Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 now showing in over 250 theaters in the Philippines

"Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2" is now showing today, July 14, 2011, in at least 250 theaters in the Philippines.

The Philippines is actually one of the 37 lucky countries which are screening the "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2" one day ahead of its official world premiere, which is tomorrow, July 15, 2011.

And you've heard it right, this final Harry Potter film is being screened now in more than 250 theaters in the Philippines, so expect it to break Philippine box-office records, just like "Transformers 3: Dark of the Moon", which had P209.96 million gross revenues on its first 5 days and after 12 days, it now has P341.92 million gross, currently the 3rd all-time top-grossing film in the Philippines.

In Metro Manila alone, "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2" is showing in 160 theaters. Wow!!!

While it seems favorable for the cinema business in the country, it doesn't sound good for our local producers.

Two Filipino films are also currently being shown, "Temptation Island" which opened last July 6 and "The Adventures of Pureza: Queen of the Riles" which only premiered yesterday, July 13, but these two Pinoy films are being shown nationwide in only 80-90 theaters (40+ for each film) as of today, July 14.

Out of almost 300 theaters, Metro Manila is only allotting 20+ cinemas each for "Temptation Island" and "The Adventures of Pureza: Queen of the Riles".
