In our previous local box office report, figures for The Adventures of Pureza Queen of the Riles hasn’t been posted on Box Office Mojo Philippines yet. Now on it’s second week, Melason’s The Adventures of Pureza Queen of the Riles reportedly managed to rake in ₱8.46-M on its first 5 days.

It seems the Pureza movie did quite well in the box office given that the groundbreaking finale of Harry Potter in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 will inevitably lead the box office tally.

Replacing Monte Carlo in the 4th position in the Philippine box office is Soxie Topacio’s Pureza movie. A film about a kind-hearted woman who lives in the slums pretends to be a Brazilian model to help uplift her life and the life of her loved ones.

Here’s the Philippine box office tally (Top 10) for the opening weekend of July 13 to 17, 2011 according to Box Office Mojo!
