Star Cinema and Viva Films' romantic-comedy film "It Takes A Man and A Woman" has reached P300 million mark on its two-week run.
The news was announced on Twitter by Star Cinema advertising and promotions manager Mico del Rosario.
The film, which stars John Lloyd Cruz and Sarah Geronimo, is currently the third highest-grossing Filipino film of all time, next to two Vice Ganda movies "Sisterakas" (P391 million) and "Praybeyt Benjamin" (P331 million).
John Lloyd meanwhile will receive the Box-Office King title on May 1 at the 44th Box-Office Entertainment Awards for last year's film "The Mistress," whom he starred with Box-Office Queen titlist Bea Alonzo.
Asked if they can surpass the income of "Sisterakas," John Lloyd said:
"Hindi ko alam, mahirap sabihin, because when 'Sisterakas' was shown, ano 'yun eh, film fest. Ngayon, matindi pa ang competition, ang daming summer big movies na paparating habang magpe-play kami, so I don't know," he said.
"Hindi ko alam kung ano mangyayari, pero siyempre andoon 'yung... umaasa tayo na magtutuloy-tuloy."
Because of the success of the film, a sequel to "It Takes A Man and A Woman" is being considered by the management.
