The comedy-fantasy movie and Metro Manila Film Festival (MMFF) 2018 entry “Fantastica”, had earned PHP 596 million worldwide, according to Star Cinema.
“Fantastica” is now the highest grossing film top-billed by Vice Ganda, says an ABS-CBN report. It has surpassed Vice Ganda’s “Gandarrapido: The Revenger Squad”, which earned PHP 571 million after its run from December 25, 2017 to January, 2018.
But, based on PEP and other sources, ‘Fantastica’ earned a bit lower than “The Super Parental Guardians”, which earned PHP 598 million (released in 2016), and which starred Vice Ganda and Coco Martin.
Despite its worldwide take, “Fantastica” failed to unseat “The Hows of Us” from the top spot.
Featuring the tandem of Kathryn Bernardo and Daniel Padilla, “The Hows of Us”, was released on August 29, 2018. It is the Philippines’ highest grossing film, earning over PHP 600 million domestically, and over PHP 800 million worldwide.
‘Fantastica’ is one of Vice Ganda’s biggest films, since he is joined by other big stars like Dingdong Dantes, Richard Gutierrez, Bela Padilla, Jaclyn Jose, and Joko Diaz and by comedians like Ryan Bang and Chokoleit.
ABS-CBN’s most popular young love teams were also a big factor in ‘Fantastica’s success. The love teams of Maymay Entrata and Edward Barber (also known collectively as MayWard), Kisses Delavin and Donny Pangilinan (DonKiss), Loisa Andalio and Ronnie Alonte (LoiNie), had their respective set of fans who thronged to the theaters to lend support to their idols.
‘Fantastica’ is a story about a family who tries to revive their old carnival. Conflict arises when a group of businessmen try to take hold of their property.
The film turns into a fantasy when an alien prince helps the family, in exchange for helping him find three princesses who come from the land of Fantastica.
