Congratulations are in order to all those who are involved in the production of “My Little Bossings,” the Metro Manila Film Festival (MMFF) 2013 box office runaway winner.
The movie, starring Vic Sotto, Kris Aquino, Aiza Seguerra, Ryzza Mae Dizon and James “Bimby” Aquino Yap Jr., grossed P50.5 million on opening day, setting the highest record ever attained by a Filipino movie of all time.
Vic and Kris, who are also co-producers (along with Orly Ilacad and Tony Tuviera), very happily note that their expectations have been exceeded by the box office turnout. “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 also with the display of their excellent acting prowess.
