HELLO, LOVE, GOODBYE is now the highest-grossing Filipino film of all time after breaching the P880 million box office mark after more than a month in local and international cinemas.
The romantic-drama about Overseas Filipino Workers in Hong Kong has grossed P880,603,490, according to Star Cinema — the film’s producers — on Sept. 3.
The announcement was made during the film’s Thanksgiving party at the ABS-CBN offices in Quezon City. A livestream of the party was uploaded on the Star Cinema Facebook page.
The film is still running in cinemas nationwide and select international screens.
It stars Kathryn Bernardo and Alden Richards (real name: Richard Faulkerson, Jr.) and is directed by Cathy Garcia-Molina.
Counting its worldwide gross, Hello, Love, Goodbye replaced another Cathy Garcia-Molina film — and also a Kathryn Bernardo-starred — The Hows Of Us, as the country’s highest-grossing film. The Hows of Us grossed P810 milllion after 50 days in 2018.
During the Thanksgiving party, Ms. Bernardo thanked the cast and crew and Ms. Garcia-Molina.
“I always say that [Ms. Garcia-Molina] is a huge part of my life, especially with Hello, Love [Goodbye] because this is the film which challenged our relationship and I couldn’t have done this without Direk Cathy,” Ms. Bernardo said in vernacular during her speech at the party which was uploaded on the Star Cinema YouTube page on Sept. 4. — ZBC
