There was a victory party for cast and production crew of Star Cinema movie, The Mistress last Monday, October 1 at 9501 restaurant of ABS-CBN.
According to Star Cinema, the movie starring John Lloyd Cruz and Bea Alonzo has reach the earnings of P300 million.
Now on its third week of showing, The Mistress is now the biggest hit of 2012, so far.
If the good performance of The Mistress continues in the box office, it might obliterate the record of Praybeyt Benjamin (2011) as the highest-grossing Filipino film of all time.
Praybeyt Benjamin, starring Vice Ganda earned P330 million.
Aside from the cast and production crew of The Mistress, top executives of ABS-CBN, Mr. Gabby Lopez and Ms. Charo Santos-Concio and even director of Star Cinema, Ms. Malou Santos attended the victory party.
VERY HAPPY. Bea expressed overflowing gratitude to the warm acceptance of the public to their comeback together with John Lloyd.
“I’m very happy… very, very happy na marami ang naka-appreciate.”
“Kasi nga, pinag-uusapan nga namin kanina, talagang hindi namin na-foresee na ganito, na this would be this successful.”
“We’re hoping na sana kahit papaano kumita kasi nga [pang-] adult siya.”
“Hindi mo ine-expect na lahat ng tao… at may question of morality pag tiningan mo sa title.”
“Kaya very, very happy kami na naging open-minded ang audience talaga, yung Filipino audience.”
What can Bea say on possibility of reclaiming Box-office queen title?
“Sana, I’m wishing na magkatotoo ‘yan, pero it’s too early to tell, e.
“Hindi pa tapos ang taon, mga tatlong buwan pa, so gusto ko sanang mangyari yun, I wish, pero mahirap yatang i-claim ‘yan.”
For Bea, The Mistress is very timely for the 10th anniversary of their togetherness with John Lloyd.
“Nakakatuwang isipin na nangyari ang lahat ng ito sa tenth anniversary namin so napakalaking gift nito for us.”
TELESERYE. Aside from movie, surely Bea-John Lloyd fans would be happy to the comeback love team of their idols on a TV series A Beautiful Affair that some of the scene was shot in Vienna, Austria.
According to Bea, “Mag-e-air siya by the end of October.”
“May kaunti-kaunting pressure kasi nga kasi manggaling kami dito [The Mistress], pero ine-enjoy namin kasi ibang-iba yung, project so talagang malabong ma-compare.”
“Yung commitment na ibinigay namin dito sa The Mistress, yun din ang ibinibigay naming commitment dito sa A Beautiful Affair.”
