MMFF 2008 Opening Gross; Ang Tanging Ina N'yong Lahat Currently in Lead

By all indication, this year's Metro Manila Film Festival (MMFF) could surpass last year's gross.

On its opening day alone, this year's movie entries already break the two days gross sale of last year's by 37 percent.

At the end of the festival screening last year, all 9 entries collectively received 380 million pesos in ticket sales. Star Cinema's Sakal, Sakali, Saklolo (SSS) lead the race with 122.9 million pesos. In second place was M-ZET and Octo Art's Enteng Kabisote 4: Okay Ka Fairy Ko The Beginning of the Legend with 104.7 million. Followed by Regal Films' Shake, Rattle, & Roll 9 with 68 million. Regal Film's Desperadas with 35.5 million was in fourth place; and last year's Best Festival Picture winner Resiklo of Imus Productions, with 21.7 million.

In an unofficial report, Star Cinema is again leading the race for the 3 consecutive years with this year's entry Ang Tanging Ina N'yong Lahat starring Ai-Ai dela Alas.
