February 14, 2013 by cd
“Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters” became the first Hollywood movie in 2013 to hit the P100-million mark at the Philippine box-office. “Chinese Zodiac” took 1 spot for second week in a row for the Feb. 6 to 10 frame.
The action fantasy flick “Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters” has raked-in P102.48 million at the local box-office on its 3rd week run. It’s the next Hollywood movie after “The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey” (which opened last December) to hit and surpass the P100-M mark and the first one at that for the year 2013.
Meanwhile, Jackie Chan‘s “Chinese Zodiac” is no. 1 again at the Philippine box-office for second week in a row. Its two-week total is now running at P62.7 million.
No Filipino movie has yet to surpass the P100 million mark, not even P10 million, this year, so far. Can Star Cinema’s “A Moment in Time” becomes the first one?
