‘Miracle in Cell No. 7’ Tops MMFF 2019 Box-Office Race Despite Awards Snub

Viva Films’ “Miracle in Cell No. 7” surpassed the P300-million mark as of January 2, 2019 according to a report by ABS-CBN News. With the way the film is performing on the second week of the Metro Manila Film Festival, it’s safe to say that the Aga Muhlach-starrer is the MMFF 2019 topgrosser despite being snubbed by the MMFF committee during the awards night for the argument that the film is just an adaptation of a hit Korean movie and the material is not original.

Muhlach has no ill-feelings towards the committee for being snubbed the Best Actor award despite expectations by people who watched several MMFF movies that he should be the winner.

“Masayang masaya po ako talaga, sobra. I knew from the bottom of my heart nung ginagawa ko itong pelikulang ‘to alam ko na magugustuhan talaga nila. Wala pong best actor, all of us we try out best. Si Allen [Dizon], mga kasama ko. Coco [Martin], Vice [Ganda], these are great actors… Kahit sinong kasama ko sa industriya na nabigyang pansin, [okay sa akin],” he said.

The film’s director, however, was dumbfounded of the snub.

“Di ako makapaniwala na in-ignore, na-snub kami sa awards especially sa actors,” director Nuel Naval said.

Meanwhile, “The Mall the Merrier” reportedly earned P230 million in the same period placing second only to “Miracle.” This is the first time in the history of the festival that a Vice Ganda movie did not top the box-office race.

In third place is “3pol Trobol Huli Ka Balbon” and in fourth is “Mission Unstapabol: The Don Identity.”

    Isa lang ibig sabihin niyan, SAWA na ang mga tao kay Vice Ganda at Vic Sotto.

  3. Movie of Vice Ganda is really not entertaining.. kahit yung pamangkin ko ay may di nainitidihan sa corny movie like yung sinabi ni Dimples na walang makakalabas sa Mall dahil sarado na.. pero nagtaka ang pamangkin ko dahil nagpagulong gulong si Vice at nakarating pa sa GMA.. wow?

  4. Kahit ano pa yan gusto ko panuorin movie ni vice. Sa inyo na yun kung di nyo alam yung message ng movie may lesson naman sya kaso gusto lang talaga mag pasaya ni vice. At isa pa gusto din ng mga fans nya. Iba naman yung ky aga napanuod ko din maganda sya kasi tagos sa puso. Iba iba naman silang dalawa ang importante masaya ang tao nanunuod. Si vice pa rin ang no.1 sa comedy yun you!!!!

  19. Peru Ponce // January 5, 2020 at 9:04 am //

    Napanood ko na ang original nito na Korean,may lesson talaga na makukuha mo.
    Vice Ganda movie,wala ng dating,un patawa niya medyo hindi na ako interesado.

    Naniniwala ako na mas nakakatulong ang isang Pelikula kung values kasama ma comedy man o drama,yan kasi ang importante para may matutunan naman ang kabataan ngayon.

  21. Dapat nmn talaga hnd sya nanalo,katulad nga ng sabi ng karamihan Korean adaptation lang movie nya.

  22. Sana mabalik yung dating mmff movies na may magandang story na pambata. Halos puchu-puchu na mga movies ngayon, mema na lang e. Corny na. Kaya ayoko na panoorin entry ni vice. Nagsisi din ako pinanood ko movie ni coco. Sana nga miracle na lang pinanood ko e.

  23. So what if the movie is an adaptation of a Korean movie, what is important it is a good movie superbly directed with the leading characters, especially Aga Muhlach who deserves an academy award performance. To many people Aga should have won the best actor award.

  24. wla naman kc bago sa pagpapatawa ni vice ganda paikot ikot at paulit ulit nlng.honestly dati twice ko npnood movie nia for mmff pero un nga maiisip mo nlng sayang pera mo at almost 2hrs ng buhay mo s loob ng sinehan kya ndi ko na tinangkilik o pinanood movie nia til now.buti nga nag 2nd p movie nia this year cguro nxt year wla n syang entry.
