'The Breakup Playlist' gross is highest last weekend, beats 'Terminator: Genisys'

'The Breakup Playlist' ruled the Philippine Box Office chart last weekend, preventing the Hollywood flick 'Terminator: Genisys' from taking the #1 spot.

The Graded A-movie starring Sarah Geronimo and Piolo Pascual opened on the same date (July 1, 2015) as the Arnold Schwarzenegger action film and was screened in 50+ more theaters than the latter. As the box-office gross earnings were tallied for the 2 films' opening weekend or first 5 days in Philippine theaters, 'The Breakup Playlist' emerged as the winner over the other, to rank on top spot for the weekend.

There's no official 5-day gross income being released yet for 'The Breakup Playlist' by its producers, but based on the info I got, it was enough to beat 'Terminator: Genisys', which made $1.5 million (based on the official figures released by its producers) or over 65-million in Philippine peso.

As previously reported (Read: The Breakup Playlist a box-office hit, plays to huge crowd in cinemas), the Sarah-Piolo movie earned P15-million on 1st day, and it has possibly exceeded the P100-million mark already before its 2nd week of showing.

Will it eventually become the July record holder? Last year's 'She's Dating The Gangster' is currently the highest-grossing film among those Filipino movies released in the month of July.

Meanwhile, last April's 'The Avengers: Age of Ultron' is so far the highest-grossing film at the Philippine Box Office this 2015, with a total gross of P14.1-million, followed by 'Jurassic World' with P10.6M, and 'Furious 7' with P10.0M. - Mykiru.ph
