The Debate is On: 15 Million or 5.8 Million Love Me Again First Day Gross?

Love Me Again First Day GrossFans are raving. The detractors are graving. This is the scenario as far as Love Me Again's first day gross is concerned. A local tabliod entertainment columnist, Allan Diones, claimed that the Piolo-Angel starrer raked in a mere Php 5.8 million nationwide on its first day. He said it was according to a very reliable source. The figure is printed in his column at Abante Tonite.

On the other side, there were unofficial reports that Piolo's movie with Angel grossed a big Php 15 million on its first day. While that number is quite high, it is not that unbelievable, considering the way the people flocked in to its premiere at SM Megamall. On its first day of showing, there were two theaters for Love Me Again in almost all SM Cinemas. Why? To accommodate the influx of movie goers all eager to watch Piolo and Angel on the big screen. I myself watched on the first day. I would say that the number of people is twice as much as I expected. The Php 5.8 million figure is way too low for what I have seen. They should have raised it to Php 8 million at least, to make it a little believable.

However, the people behind Star Cinema is mum about the movie's official box office sales on its first day. Today, Love Me Again marks its second week of showing. No figures from the producers are out yet. Is this a strategy? Or a marketing study? Remember that Star Cinema didn't release first day gross values of the Sarah-John Lloyd movie, A Very Special Love either. But it was the strongest last year, before Ai-Ai's MMFF entry, Ang Tanging Ina Nyong Lahat.

Bottomline? 5.8 million or 15 million, it really doesn't matter. The movie was watched and flocked by many Angel Locsin and Piolo Pascual fans. It wouldn't take away the fact that it was a good movie with great cinematography and superb acting. It's worth your money, especially if you're a fan. I'd watch it over again if I could.

$5million or $15million???...maxado naman atang malaking pera pag dollars xa...baka naman pesos lang po at ndi dollars..well nanoud din ako ng love me again, but honestly speaking mas gusto kong panuoring ung trailer kesa ung mismong movie..well i love angel locsin xa lang naman ang dahilan kung bakit ako nanood pero un lang ndi nya nameet ng movie ung expectation ko..wala namang problema sa cast ng talking about the flow of the movie..parang ndi ako nasatisfy lang sa story ng movie, unlike sa AVSL na sobrang shock ako kc unexpected kc ung story...I thought john llyod at sarah ay walang chemsitry pero nung panuorin well masasabi kong super duper excellent..

Bias naman masyado comment ng isa dyan. Don't get me wrong, i love Sarah and JLC and their movie was great, but the story was kinda shallow too ( si JLC na nagsabi nyan na walang lalim ang istorya kya medyo takot sya sa una to do the movie, tapos bago pa si Sarah). Ang LMA, simple nga rin but it showcased that one part of the Philippines na maganda although simple buhay lang and another part of the world. I think hindi mo lang gusto si Piolo kaya. Sana di ka na lang nanood, syang tuloy pera mo.
