MMFF 2012 top grosser 'Sisterakas' now the highest grossing Pinoy film of all time

MMFF 2012 top grosser 'Sisterakas' continues to break records and is now officially the all-time highest grossing Pinoy film after 13 days of showing.

As of 13th day of the 38th Metro Manila Film Festival (January 6, 2013), 'Sisterakas' has already earned P339.12-million, according to the box office report shared on Twitter this morning by the very hardworking ABS-CBN ad prom head Eric John Salut (@ericjohnsalut).

Apart from being the MMFF 2012 top grosser, the festival's 3rd Best Picture and the highest grossing
Filipino film in 2012, 'Sisterakas' gross is now P7.5M higher than the
P331.61M gross of the 2011 movie 'Praybeyt Benjamin' to become the new
highest grossing Pinoy film ever. (All the poor reviews it's getting shouldn't matter now with this amazing achievement.)

So far, these 2 films are the only local films which crossed the P300-million mark and for the upcoming films to beat their records, they should aim for the P400-million mark.

Interestingly, 'Sisterakas' and 'Praybeyt Benjamin' have the same producers (Star Cinema and Viva), same director (Wenn Deramas) and
same lead star (Vice Ganda). (And even same supporting actor DJ Durano lol)

Also contributing big to 'Sisterakas' record-breaking success is of course the proven box office prowess of its 2 female leads Kris Aquino and Ai-Ai delas Alas. And of course, the KathNiel loveteam (Kathryn Bernardo and Daniel Padilla) played a big part as well.

Shall we expect Vice Ganda, Kris Aquino and Ai-Ai delas Alas being crowned Box Office King and Queens of 2012? And how about KathNiel as the Most Popular Love Team of the Year? That's a strong possibility
when Guillermo Mendoza Scholarship Foundation hands out its 44th Box
Office Entertainment Awards this 2013. -
