- Isa Pa With Feelings was not a huge success in the cinemas
- It is the first team-up movie of Carlo Aquino and Maine Mendoza
- BlackSheep and APT Entertainment collaborated to produce the film
Maine Mendoza and Carlo Aquino’s Isa Pa With Feelings didn’t receive much attention at the cinemas since it was initially released on October 16.
According to a report of Philstar.com, the romance movie only accumulated P43 million gross income as of Sunday, November 3, though it strongly debuted with an unofficial gross of P6.8M.
Despite this, the movie received numerous good reviews from reputable entertainment sites and from those who had already seen the movie.
Directed by Prime Cruz, BlackSheep’s ‘Isa Pa With Feelings’ marks Carlo and Maine’s first time working together. Carlo last paired up with Angelica Panganiban in the movie Exes Baggage while Maine, who rose to fame as one half of the phenomenon that was the AlDub love team, is one of GMA Network’s mainstay stars.
Meanwhile, Sarah Geronimo’s drama film, Unforgettable, earned a similar figure as Isa Pa With Feelings on its second week at the cinemas. The film garnered P42 million since it was released on October 23, Wednesday.
Hellcome Home which debuted on October 30 didn’t attract many moviegoers with only over P7 million gross income in less than a week.
At this rate, the country’s film producers may likely face a tough challenge to hit the box-office goals with the Metro Manila Film Festival (MMFF) 2019 official entries.
