My brain cells are in disbelief this weekend thinking whatever happened to the status quo? I am talking about the crazy and insane paying moviegoers’ behavior. I am telling you, there is no stopping for the latest film of Star Cinema, The Hows Of us to break box office records in the Philippines. Starring Daniel Padilla and Kathryn Bernardo, the movie finished the game with a whopping 279,500,000.00 Million after its 5-day weekend run.
