Beauty and the bestie is the highest grossing Filipino film of all time - Star Cinema
Star Cinema officially announced in their social media accounts that their co-produced film with Viva films "Beauty and the bestie" is the new highest grossing Filipino film of all time, topping the 2015 Metro Manila Film Festival box office and beating the local box office sales of the previous highest grossing film "A Second Chance."
Star Cinema's Roxy Liquigan has announced via Twitter that Vice Ganda's latest movie 'Beauty and the Bestie' already grossed P482.2-million after almost 3 weeks in theaters, becoming the highest grossing Pinoy film of all time when it comes to domestic grosses.
The John Lloyd Cruz-Bea Alonzo film 'A Second Chance' is still the all-time highest, when talkin' about worldwide gross earning P556M.
Now, it's exciting how the Guillermo Scholarship Foundation will award the titles Phenomenal Box Office Star (held by Vice Ganda for 4 years now), Box Office King and Box Office Queen.
Since both 'A Second Chance' and 'The Beauty and the Bestie' were able to beat the 2014 record-holder, I think they should award the Phenomenal Box Office Star title to the lead stars of both movies - John Lloyd and Bea, Vice and Coco Martin, just like in 2014, when Vice and Vic Sotto were both honored with the award for different movies (the former for 'Girl, Boy, Bakla, Tomboy', Vic for 'My Little Bossings').
