The Breakup Playlist, the latest romantic-comedy movie from Star Cinema which stars Sarah Geronimo and Piolo Pascual, made 15 million pesos on its first day on cinemas nationwide.
The figure was revealed by Star Cinema's AdProm executive Mico Del Rosario @micodelrosario1 on his Instagram account.
Some showbiz observers looked at the figures a little below their expectations as both lead actors were box office drawers.
Geronimo, three-time Box Office Queen awardee, had already made a billion pesos for her movies in the past. Pascual, on the other hand, the reigning Box Office King, made half a billion pesos for his last movie Starting Over Again with Toni Gonzaga.
Directed by Dan Villegas (English Only Please), from the script of Antoinette Jadaone (That Thing Called Tadhana), The Breakup Playlist tells a story about an aspiring professional singer and a rock singer who collaborate in a song. As they work on their song, they start to develop feelings for each other.
