Olivia Lamasan’s Starting Over Again grossed 300 Million in the Box Office in 12 days. This breaks both Piolo and Toni’s respective Box Office Records for the last 10 years. This less than 2 weeks of showing is indeed the fastest Box Office movie to reach 300 Million mark. It was shown in around 270 Cinemas nationwide on its first week.
Bride For Rent last January also reach 300 Million in 2 weeks and Star Cinema is setting another standard of successs on all of its commercial films for 2014 so far. Startin Over Again is giving its audience the kind of movie they want to watch these days. The film aims to communicate the fact that every choice in life has a rippling effect that one must inevitably accept and not everyone is blessed with a second chance to love. Starting Over Again is centered on Ginny (Toni Gonzaga) and Marco (Piolo Pascual) who are former lovers with a major unfinished business to settle in their relationship.
“The movie has an element of a Box Office.” – Rodmagaru.com FULL MOVIE REVIEW HERE.
As of January 2014, Piolo Pascual’s highest grossing Film was the 2004 movie with Claudine Barretto. This wass the highest and most talked about film that year, also directed by Olivia Lamasan. It seems like a tandem with Olivia Lamasan, and a Valentine playdate for Piolo Pascual worked for him straight to the limelight of Box Office. Other movies of Piolo Pascual like Love Me Again and Don’t Give Up on Us which both released as opening salvo for 2009 and 2006 respectively also included in his Box Office Record.

On the other hand, Toni Gonzaga’s history of Box Office are also most noted in the movie industry. Her charming and wit is her epic inventory on her every movie in the past. her movie with Phenomenal Box Office Queen is her last movie and earned 238 Million in a month. She also did another movie opposite another Box Office King, John Lloyd Cruz with My Amnesia Girl. I remember attending its Premiere Night and as of my record, My Amnesia Girl Premiere Night is the most crowded premiere night of Toni Gonzaga.

I predicted Started Over Again‘s Box Office at 340 Million, give or take. But considering it raked 300 Million in 12 days, I think I will be short this time. Starting Over Again is written by Carmi Raymundo, the genius story teller behind John Lloyd-Sarah trilogy with Cathy Garcia Molina, and Xian Lim and Kim Chiu’s Box Office film Bride for Rent.
