Piolo Pascual is new Box Office King

Hunk Piolo Pascual is the new Box Office King based on the result at the tills of his first big screen team-up with actress Toni Gonzaga.

“Starting Over Again” is now the highest-grossing Philippine film of all time when it breached the P400-million mark at the domestic box office only a month after its release.

The movie which was shown in around 270 Cinemas nationwide also broke both Piolo and Toni’s respective Box Office Records for the last 10 years. The movie tells the story of college professor Marco (Pascual), whose girlfriend, Ginny (Gonzaga), left him without saying goodbye. The two met again after four years at a time when Marco is already happy with a new partner, Patty (Iza Calzado).

The Olivia Lamasan movie has now deposed the 2011 comedy film “The Unkabogable Praybeyt
Benjamin,” which earned P332 million during its run.

“Starting Over Again,” which is part of the 20th anniversary celebration of ABS-CBN film outfit Star Cinema, is still showing in over 270 theaters in the Philippines and in select theaters in the United States.
