'A Mother's Story' Movie Box-Office Report: P24.8 million in 2 weeks

Box Office Mojo has released the first box-office report for the year 2012 with 'Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol' on the lead with P162.7-million after 6 weeks.

This Tom Cruise movie actually opened already in Philippine theaters last December 15 and had to stop showing on Dec. 25 to give way to the 2011 Metro Manila Film Festival.

'Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol' resumed its run only last January 8 along with other new releases such as 'Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows', 'Alvin and the Chipmunks: Chipwrecked' and the local film 'A Mother's Story'.

In 2011, 'MI: Ghost Protocol' already earned P114.18M then this 2012, it collected P48.52M.

'Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows' had a total gross of P55.82M in 2 weeks while 'Alvin and the Chipmunks: Chipwrecked' had P50.49M.

The Star Cinema-TFC film 'A Mother's Story' meanwhile earned P24.82-million after 2 weeks (15 days) since its January 8 release.

The movie, which launches comedian Pokwang as a drama actress, was rumored as a "flop" in the box-office, but with 2-week gross of P24.82M, it's quite just fine and not a "flop", considering that no other big stars are part of the film and not a big-budgeted one.

The box-office report is only up to January 22, so it still has few more days of unreported earnings.

The Hollywood film 'Underworld Awakening', is also dominating the Philippine Box Office. The movie opened only last Friday, January 20, and after 3 days, it already has P37.95M gross earnings.

New releases this week include 'J. Edgar', 'The Darkest Hour', 'Contraband', 'Haywire' and the Star Cinema/SkyLight Films movie 'My Cactus Heart' (starring Maja Salvador, Matteo Guidicelli and Xian Lim).
