MMFF 2011 Box Office Tally (Opening Day): 'Enteng Ng Ina Mo' takes top spot

The MMFF 2011 has officially opened today, December 25 (Christmas Day) and just like in the previous years, it's always exciting to know which MMFF entries drew the longest lines of moviegoers during the festival's opening day.

There are seven (7) official entries in the 37th Metro Manila Film Festival or MMFF 2011 and as expected, 'Enteng Ng Ina Mo' dominated Day 1 of the festival.

No official figures have been released yet by the MMFF officials, but according to Star Cinema people, the movie, which is co-produced by Star Cinema/OctoArts/M-Zet/APT and stars MMFF box-office giants Vic Sotto and Ai-Ai delas Alas, had a record-breaking opening day figure of P38.5-million.

Movie tickets for 'Enteng Ng Ina Mo' reportedly were declared "sold-out" in some cinemas, that moviegoers had to settle for either 'Ang Panday 2' or 'Segunda Mano' as their 2nd choice. (These two films actually also had sold-out tickets in other cinemas.)

SM Megamall, which has 12 cinemas, said on Twitter about 10PM tonight that the 3 films who dominated their cinemas on Day 1 of MMFF 2011 were 'Enteng Ng Ina Mo', 'Segunda Mano' and 'Ang Panday 2'.

"@StarCinema's Enteng Ng Ina Mo, Segunda Mano and @GMA_FILMS Panday 2
came in strong at the Box Office for the first day of MMFF 2011," SM MegaMall posted on Twitter.

SM Megamall initially allotted 2 cinemas each for 'Enteng Ng Ina Mo',
'Ang Panday 2', 'Shake, Rattle & Roll 13', 'Segunda Mano' and 'Yesterday, Today, Tomorrow', and one (1) each for 'My Househusband: Ikaw Na!' and 'Manila Kingpin: The Asiong Salonga Story'.

But it ended the day with 4 cinemas for the very strong 'Enteng Ng Ina Mo'.

We might have the official MMFF 2011 box office tally or results for al1 7 entries by Monday morning, but as of 10PM on Sunday, reportedly, here's how the entries ranked on Day 1:

1. Enteng Ng Ina Mo
2. Ang Panday 2
3. Segunda Mano
4. My Househusband
5. SRR 13
6. Yesterday, Today, Tomorrow
7. Manila Kingpin: The Asiong Salonga Story
