My Little Bossings rules MMFF box-office
Congratulations are in order to all those who are involved in the production of My Little Bossings, the 2013 Metro Manila Film Festival (MMFF) box-office runaway winner.
The movie, starring Vic Sotto, Kris Aquino, Aiza Seguerra, Ryzza Mae Dizon and James “Bimby” Aquino Yap, grossed P50.5 million on opening day, setting the highest record ever attained by a Filipino movie of all time.
Vic Sotto and Kris Aquino, who are both actors and co-producers (along with Orly Ilacad and Tony Tuviera) of My Little Bossings, very happily noted that their expectations were exceeded by the box-office turn-out of the movie. “We are so thankful to everyone who found time to watch our movie. We’re very proud of this achievement,” they said.
The production companies—OctoArts Films, M-Zet Films, APT Entertainment and Kris Aquino Productions—celebrate the rare distinction and look at it as a validation and encouragement to come up with more family-oriented movies like My Little Bossings. This movie touches the heart and warms the soul and credit should be given to director Marlon Rivera and script and screenplay writer Bibeth Orteza who both share the plaudit with the producers.
They also acknowledge the fact that the record-breaking box-office result is largely owed to the outstanding chemistry shared by the film’s cast members, especially the two precocious children Ryzza Mae and Bimby who have wowed the audience not only with their cuteness, but with the display of their excellent acting prowess. Ryzza Mae gave excellent performance while Bimby has managed to surprise everyone with his on-screen charm and credibility, considering My Little Bossings is only his first foray into the big screen.
My Little Bossings is still showing at your favorite theaters as part of this year’s Metro Manila Film Festival.
