- Hello, Love, Goodbye earned Php 880 million which surpasses The Hows of Us
- The movie broke the record of The Hows of Us
- Hello, Love, Goodbye is still showing in cinemas nationwide and worldwide.
Star Cinema’s Hello, Love, Goodbye starring Kathryn Bernardo and Alden Richards has surpassed The Hows of Us and is now the highest-grossing Filipino film of all time.
The movie has raked in over Php 880,603,490 pesos in worldwide earnings compared to The Hows of Us at Php 700 million in the local box office and over US$ 2 million in international receipts.
“As of Sept. 3, 6:15 PM, our worldwide gross is 880, 603, 490 million pesos. This is now the highest grossing Filipino film of all time,” Olivia Lamasan revealed.
The movie has been shown in Taiwan, Hong Kong, Malaysia, Cambodia, Vietnam, Japan, and South Korea. It also became the first Filipino film to be shown in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia.
Director Cathy Garcia Molina is thankful for the overwhelming response to the film.
“Aside from my actors, hindi ko pwedeng balewalain ang tulong na binibigay ng staff ko through thick and thin,” Direk Cathy said. “Part of my success are these people behind me and with me.”
The success of the film also proved that crossing networks and trying new pairings are good for Philippine movie industry. “Gusto namin magpasalamat sa lahat ng nakausap namin sa Hong Kong na nag-share ng kwento nila sa amin,” writer Carmi Raymundo saied.
If there is one thing that makes her feel bad about the movie’s success, it is that unscrupulous individuals have bootlegged the film and even uploaded it on several websites.
Both the top-grossing film Hello, Love, Goodbye and The Hows of Us were directed by Direk Cathy and starred Kathryn as well.
