In a recent Instagram post, Star Cinema announced that the latest Cathy Garcia-Molina film “Hello, Love, Goodbye” is “now the highest-grossing movie of all time” which raised some questions from netizens. The artwork, which features the film’s stars Kathryn Bernardo and Alden Richards, shows the latest box-office figure on top which is P880,603,490 and below that figure says “worldwide gross as of September 3, 2019, 6:15pm.”
Here’s the complete caption of the artwork:
Some netizens reacted on the post because they thought “The Hows Of Us” still holds the record for “Highest-Grossing Filipino Movie of All Time” record by virtue of its reported worldwide box-office gross of P915 million which was set last year.
iam_jodelyn13 – “Diba THOU? 915M?”

ABS-CBN News, in its latest article, did not indicate the exact box-office figure of 2018’s “The Hows Of Us.” They wrote:
In fact, with this new achievement, the long-time collaborators broke their own record. Their 2018 film, “The Hows of Us,” also a Star Cinema production where Bernardo starred opposite her real-life boyfriend Daniel Padilla, was previously the highest-grossing Philippine film with over P800 million in global gross — until “Hello, Love, Goodbye” surpassed that.
KathNiel fans claim that the box-office record of “The Hows of Us” is P915 million as stated in the film’s Wikipedia entry.
Meanwhile, the film’s cast and crew gathered earlier today for a thanksgiving party. The event was also attended by ABS-CBN executives.
