Few more theaters were added in top SM and Ayala malls nationwide to accommodate more people to watch the movie on its first week of run.

Directed by Mae Cruz, Bride for Rent tells a story of Rocky dela Cruz played by Kim Chiu who auditioned and qualified for a role without knowing she'll be playing a "wife" to Rocco Espiritu played by Xian Lim who wants to inherit his grandmother’s riches.

The movie clearly solidified the strength of KimXi at the box office. Congratulations!

  1. congrats are in order for the Starcinema team and of course Kim and Xian
    for Kim this only means she has found a genre she can start working on to solidify her movie star status, and yes from the romcom genre who knows how ABS can fashion her to become a solid bankable movie star also in other movie genres
    there's more reason now to pair up with John Lloyd to solidify this
    for Xian, this only means he can be the next John Lloyd ABS has been longing for in terms of movie leading man bankability
    it cannot be denied Xian has potential to pair with other proven ABS bankable leading leading like Bea, Angel, Angelica, Toni and might be the right guy Viva can "request" to pair with either Sara, Anne or even Cristine
    after all Viva has been over requesting John Lloyd
    Xian is a very good alternate option
    while he's not a seasoned actor yet, it cannot be denied he is an intelligent actor and that makes him flexible and good at interacting with coactors
    he mixes perfectly with Kim's antics with his perfect reaction timing
    even in drama he's a keen interaction actor with costars, so it makes him a perfect leading man for the ABS bankable ladies esp since his sophisticated looks and being a dapper dresser is likewise perfect for movie dramas just as fine

  2. Not at this time, we are just enjoying the kimxi tandem and it is not right to break it up now. Remember what carmi raymundo says during the blogcon, it is very difficult to manufacture chemistry. Kim and xian have great chemistry and let the kimxi fans enjoy the tandem for now.
