The Hows of Us on making another box office history
Now that The Hows of Us has broken existing all-time box office records for a Filipino film, it looks like The Hows of Us just may have a shot at chalking up another historic first in Philippine cinema.
At the rate that it’s going, the movie The Hows of Us might just become the first Filipino film to earn PHP 1 billion pesos.
Vice Ganda’s PHP 598 million worldwide earnings for The Super Parental Guardians was achieved in 5 weeks.
But The Hows of Us is only on its third week and still has not been shown in other parts of the world.
The domestic gross of The Hows of Us was PHP 505 million as of September 9, 2018. It added almost a PHP 100 million in 8 days. Two weeks more and it might just reach around PHP 800 million domestic gross.
Directed by Cathy Garcia-Molina, “The Hows of Us” is now on third week of showing in local cinemas nationwide. It is also being shown in theaters overseas.
