MMFF 2016 First Day Box Office Top Grossing Films

According to a statement from the MMFF Executive Committee (ExeCom), released on Monday, December 26, the following are first day top grossers, in no particular order:

1. Vince & Kath & James
2. Die Beautiful
3. Ang Babae Sa Septic Tank 2
4. Seklusyon

The statement also said that the festival has reached its target sales for the first day. The statement read: "We have re-assessed and set a new benchmark for this festival, we nevertheless look at the financial sales for the first day as a real bonus as we have already achieved what we started out to in the first place, which is the cultural advancement through Filipino films." It continued, "You cannot put a price [on] something which the future generations of Filipinos will find priceless and ageless."

The committee is yet to reveal the official figures of earnings for each MMFF entry. Not all the box office returns have been submitted yet, which is why they have not announced a final figure for the festival's first day total gross.

Other entries to the 2016 MMFF are Saving Sally, Oro, Kabisera and Sunday Beauty Queen


In SM Megamall where we watch MMFF entries yesterday, 4 cinemas where allotted to Ang Babae Sa Septic Tank 2 including Director's Club, 3 to Vince & Kath & James, and 1 for those remaining entries. On the first few hours before the power outage, the cinemas of the top grossing films above are always full house. Ranking may expect to change dramatically after the Gabi Ng Parangal awards night on Dec 29.
