“Ang sinabi sa akin, ganito na lang ang mangyayari kasi kawawa naman ‘yung nagla-lag behind. I can safely say that we are really so happy and we are going to the target na P1 billion. Kaya lang, gusto sana natin equal distribution hanggang kaya ng lahat ng mga pelikula. Pero as expected, ‘yung mga pelikula ni Vice Ganda at saka ni Coco Martin at Vic Sotto ang nangunguna sa takilya.”
