‘The Revenger Squad’ vs ‘Ang Panday’ for 2017 MMFF box office champion.

As the MMFF 2017 get under way, everybody wants to know the box office results. Each year, a movie’s earnings at the box office has been the gauge of its success, more than the awards that are given by the MMFF jurors.

Producers announce the box office take of their films daily in order to entice more viewers. But, this year, it will be different. No box office results update will be posted. Not until the end of the MMFF in January 2018.

This is just one of the many reforms of the MMFF 2017. Box office revenues are kept confidential in order not to create a ‘bandwagon effect’. There are even penalties for those who leak the box office information – P200,000!

So, for those waiting for box office updates of their favorite MMFF 2017 movies this year, check again in January.
