Three weekends has passed and A Moment In Time is in no way of getting the P100-million mark which is a disappointing news given last years’ Valentines movie by Star Cinema, UnOfficially Yours, raked P143.44-million in 3 weeks. The Coco Martin and Julia Montes film grossed a still decent tickets sale of P63.34 million in three consecutive weeks though. But with highly anticipated big movies from Hollywood like Oz: The Great and Powerful and the current first honor in PH box office chart ‘Jack the Giant Killer‘ with a P51.8 million, A Moment In Time is never going to have the box office success they expected the film to have.
This puts Coco Martin and Julia Montes’ team up slightly skewed but nevertheless they were great in the movie I guess. The fact that I didn’t watch would very well explain how Star Cinema has failed to interest me. Or maybe this is because of the sudden jumping from one movie to another. Like, in days time Star Cinema will release Kathryn Bernardo and Daniel Padilla’s first movie ‘Must Be…Love’. And after two weeks, they’re gonna kill the marketing on Must Be…Love and focus on the Sarah-John Lloyd movie ‘It Takes A Man and A Woman’, making the former mildly ‘flop’ compared to their expected box office value.
Anyway, box office update! The top 10 movies at the Philippine Box Office for February 27 to March 3 features Jack the Giant Slayer at top 1, second is the Beautiful Creatures with a P25.97-Million gross to date, A Good Day to Die Hard at P82.23-Million, Oscar Best Actress winner ‘Silver Linings Playbook’ which only grossed P4.5-million and A Moment in Time at the 5th spot.
The psycho thriller Stoker which is by the way directed by a Korean Filmmaker has grossed only P2.6-million on its first week while Warm Bodies grossed P39.56-million in 5 weeks. At number 8 is the Oscar nominated film ‘Lincoln’ which also flops at Philippine Box Office with a P6.9-million and on the 9th and 10th spots are the horror film Mama and the still showing Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters movie which among this weeks’ box office chart has reached the P100-million mark to date with a P111-million box office gross.
