'The Reunion' wins over 'Just One Summer' at Philippine Box Office

The box office results for the period August 15 to 19, 2012 are finally out!

This was the time when 5 new films opened in Philippines, 2 of which are local films: "Just One Summer" under GMA Films and "The Reunion" under Star Cinema.

'Just One Summer' stars JuliElmo (Julie Anne San Jose and Elmo Magalona) while 'The Reunion' stars Enchong Dee, Xian Lim, Enrique Gil and Kean Cipriano.

And I'm sure you guys are most excited to know which between these two films grossed higher or which one flopped in the box-office?

You guys ready?

'The Reunion' grossed P31.21-million on its first 5 days, while 'Just One Summer' (flop?) only grossed 5 times lower, a miserable P6.16-million, according to figures released at BoxOfficeMojo.com.

However, neither of these two films have topped the Philippine box-office. It's still Hollywood's "The Bourne Legacy" which collected P49.95-million for its 2nd weekend in the country, and now has a total gross earnings of P168.53-million to become the 4th highest-grossing film in the Philippines for 2012.

Among new releases, it's "The Expendables 2" who ruled, pulling in a total of P40.63-million.

Meanwhile, Star Cinema's "The Healing", which starred Vilma Santos and Kim Chiu, has finally reached the 100-million-peso mark after 4 weeks in theaters.

It's only the 3rd Filipino film to achieve so this 2012, after "Unofficially Yours" with a final gross of P157.25-million and "Kimmy Dora and the Temple of Kiyeme" with P133.96-million.
