Star Cinema has just announced that The Revenger Squad is now the highest-grossing Filipino film of all time, with Php 571 million and counting. This comes at the heels of another report from MMFF declaring the Vice Ganda-starrer as the 2017 festival’s top earner, followed by Ang Panday, Siargao, and Haunted Forest.
This assures Vice Ganda of adding one more term to his six-year Phenomenal Box Office Star streak, which began with 2011’s The Unkabogable Praybeyt Benjamin. Six out of these seven films debuted in the MMFF.
As of January 20, it is still showing in 19 cinemas nationwide, which is an impressive feat given the number of Hollywood releases since January 8. Final numbers are expected when the film bows out of theaters by the end of the month.The reported gross does not account yet for international screenings.
The Revenger Squad also stars Daniel Padilla and Pia Wurtzbach.
