We are already in the middle of the year and as usual, we enumerated and ranked Philippine movies according to their ticket sales. Still surviving against Hollywood projects, movie outfits produced less than 50 movies, commercials and independent films combined.
Leading the list as of June 30, 2015 is the undisputed Teen King and Queen of Philippine Movies, Daniel Padilla & Kathryn Bernardo with their movie produced by Star Cinema, “Crazy Beautiful You” Globally they earned a total of 2 Million US Dollars, inclusive of 320 Million Pesos earned in the Philippines alone.
Toni Gonzaga and Coco Martin’s movie, “Youre My Boss” also produced by Star Cinema breaches 200 Million mark aspired from the beginning. Toni Gonzaga came from 2014’s project opposite Piolo Pascual entitled, “Starting Over Again” that made of them the Guillermo Mendoza Box Office King and Queen of 2014.
Cinema One Original entry, That Thing Called Tadhana was re-distributed commercially by Star Cinema and earned a whopping 125 Million, making the movie the highest grossing independent movie of all time. Kid Kulafu, a biopic of Boxing Champion Manny Pacquiao surpassed 80 Million. The recent Pacquiao-Mayweather fight helped the promotion and awareness for the movie.
Here is the official ranking of Box Office Movies for 2015 as of June 30, 2015.
