MANILA, Philippines—As the crucial weekend grosses come in, Star Cinema’s “Sakal, Sakali, Saklolo” overtakes OctoArts’ “Enteng Kabisote 4” in the box-office race of the 33rd Metro Manila Film Festival.

“Sakal,” sequel to last year’s top-grosser “Kasal, Kasali, Kasalo,” posted P68.3 million. On the other hand, “Enteng,” fourth instalment of the fantasy franchise starring TV host Vic Sotto, earned P66.6 million.

Third place goes to Regal’s “Shake, Rattle & Roll 9,” with P41.6 million.

Imus/Ignite’s “Resiklo” is in fourth place, with P15.6 million; MaQ’s “Bahay Kubo,” fifth, P12.6 million; and Maverick’s “Katas ng Saudi,” sixth, P2.8 million.

As of Dec. 30, total MMFF earnings is P208 million.

Ric Camaligan, MMFF executive committee member, provided the latest box office figures.

Camaligan credits the festival’s “Cash sa Pelikula” promo for the good box-office showing.

“Sakal” director Jose Javier Reyes, who is currently vacationing in Boracay, says that he is happy with the strong performance of “Sakal” at the tills, but hopes “movies that are different will also be given a chance by moviegoers.”

“We can’t have a festival of sequels every year,” he notes “We can’t have ‘Enteng,’ ‘Sakal,’ ‘Shake’ and ‘Mano Po’ every year. I believe the success of ‘Sakal’ is a carryover from last year’s ‘Kasal.’ More than ‘Katas’ [which he also directed], I hope new films like ‘Banal’ [which opens Jan. 1] will also do well.”

    Ibig bang sabihin nito, labanan na ng sequels?

    Wish ko lang magkaroon ng katulad ng Spiderman 2 na isho-showing pagkatapos na pagkatapos ng MMFF para matauhan na sila.

    jofer18: the golden years of the Philippine film industry, the 1970's and the 1980's, had long gone. the movies made by directors like Lino Brocka, Ishmael Bernal and Mike De Leon were of great quality. the actors who acted under those directors showed brilliance. the film producers at the time were more concerned about the quality of the product than about raking in profit.

    the Pinoy films of this generation are complete and absolute trash. the actors act terribly. the direction of the films are stupid. the films lacked quality and are made only to rake in profit.

    THE PHILIPPINE FILM INDUSTRY IS ALREADY DEAD. face it.

    patay na? ano ba ang basehan mo para masabing patay na ang isang industriya? pag hindi magaling ang mga nagsisipagganap na artista? o kapag ***** ang direktor? o dahil basura ang kwento?
    paanong hindi mamamatay e hindi mo man lang pinanood?
    ang pinapanood mo ay ang mga pelikula sa hollywood na maganda ang effects, pero pag tinignan at at hinimay, wala rin akong nakikitang pagkakaiba sa mga binanggit mong mga halimbawa nung sabihin mong patay na ang Philippine Film Industry.
    hindi ko na rin kukwestyunin kung bakit ganyan ang pagtingin mo sa ating kultura (ang mga pelikula ay parte na rin ng sining-biswal na kultura ng isang bansa).
    kung ganun pa rin ang iyong pagtingin, ipagdasal mo na lang na sana umakyat man lang sa langit ang namatay na industriya. at dalawin mo tuwing araw ng patay.

    the Philippine movie industry has long been dead. it died when the great films of the 1970's and the 1980's had gone away for good. it died when Lily Monteverde, Robbie Tan and Vic Del Rosario turned the industry into a cash cow through trash films. it died when the Pito-Pito era entered into full swing. it died when terrible actors combined with terrible directing and terrible story lines become more prominent in this generation of Pinoy movies.

    EK, SSS and other films of this generation are garbage films which are only made for profit and not for quality. because that is the kind of mentality that producers have nowadays, the Filipino audience do not discern quality from crappy, thus giving producers more reasons to produce profit-raking but absolutely garbage films.

    I dont think so...marami pa ring magagandang films na hindi kita lang iniisip kundi ang kalidad din...nabulag ka sa paniniwala mong patay na ang film industry ng pinas kaya every film that comes out is ugly to you...kahit na bigyan kita ng magagandang pelikulang pinoy eh kung yan ang pininiwala mo magiging pangit at pangit pa rin ito sa paningin mo or siguro you just really dont know how to identify movies that have great quality! and you might just really a classic avid that you even dont know there are movies which are greater than before....how petty...

    baka hindi lang kumita yung bet ni bahay_kubo sa takilya...


    and face it BK...70's,80' hindi pa gaano kauso ang betamax at kakaunti lang ang sa mga pinoy na may betamax nuon kaya karamihan ng pelikula na ginagawa eh kumikita... dahil isa sa mga libangan ng tao eh ang sinehan at magkano lang ba ang sinehan nuong araw? ni nagbebenta ng sweepstakes nakakapanood pa ng sine nuon... ngayon sa dahil technology marami ng pinagpipilian ang mga tao para malibang!

    at yung mga kilalang sinehan sa recto halos nagsisarahan na... tandem,odeon, New Love Cinema sa Central Market, yung sa may North edsa, sa cubao.. nagsisarahan na... even sa US bihira na lang magkaroon ng blockbuster movies.....sa isang taon isa o dalawa na lang...

    kaya ang LVN at sampaguita namamayagpag nuon.... buti na lang andyan pa ang Star Cinema at Mother Lily na nagri-rsik pang gumawa ng pelikula dahil sa mahal na ng bilihin ngayon.
