MANILA – The second big-screen team-up of Xian Lim and Kim Chiu earned over P20 million on the first day of its nationwide release.

In a post on his Twitter and Instagram accounts, Star Cinema's advertising and promotions manager Mico Del Rosario announced that “Bride For Rent” raked in a total of P21.2 million at the box office on Wednesday.

“Amaaazzzzinnggg!!! On its first day: #brideforrent made a whopping P21.2Million at the box-office!!! Congratulations to the entire team! Pang-MMFF levels sa lakas ang kimxian tandem,” he wrote.

Following this success, Del Rosario said the movie will now be screened in 133 cinemas nationwide.

Lim, meanwhile, thanked everyone who has already seen the movie.

"Thank you ng sobra sobra guys! we earned 22.1M in our first day! thank you for allowing us to touch your hearts," he said.

However, it remains to be seen whether “Bride For Rent” will surpass the record made by Lim and Chiu’s first movie together, "Bakit Hindi Ka Crush ng Crush Mo," which grossed over P100 million in three weeks.

Aside from Lim and Chiu, "Bride for Rent" also stars Pilita Corales, Tirso Cruz III, Matt Evans, Martin del Rosario, and Matt Evans.

Daebak! WOW! Can't wait to see it!

Glad Kim is finally realising her knack for rom coms; she's way better and more natural and looks more comfortable acting in this genre! Hopefully her next drama will also be a rom com! Or how about sticking to films for now to establish her film career? Mas A-lister kasi ang level pag films eh heheh mas fresh pa ang storylines ~~ :))

yeah Kim is an "actriz comica" with a natural charisma. I bet her next drama will have Mexican romantic-comedy elements... think Las Tontas and De Que Te Quiero Te Quiero.
Sana sa movies muna si Kim Chiu..... XD kung pwede lang sana

'Bride for Rent' earns P100M in 4 days

ABS-CBNnews.com
Posted at 01/19/2014 1:19 AM | Updated as of 01/19/2014 1:19 AM

MANILA -- "Bride for Rent," the second team-up of Kim Chiu and Xian Lim on the big screen, continued its strong performance at the box office on Saturday, as it hit the P100-million mark after only four days in theaters.

The figure was announced Saturday night by Star Cinema executive Roxy Liquigan, who noted that the feat was impressive considering the movie's January playdate.

To compare, Chiu and Lim's last film, "Bakit Hindi Ka Crush ng Crush Mo?" in 2013, took over two weeks to earn P100 million.

Similarly a romantic-comedy, "Bride for Rent" is directed by Mae Czarina Cruz and written by Carmi Raymundo.

In the film, Chiu portrays Rocky, whose frantic search for a job leads her to an audition called by Rocco (Lim). He is looking for a woman to pretend to be his wife, in the hope of accessing his trust fund.

With the burden of preventing her family's eviction from their rented home, Rocky takes up the role which soon spirals into a long-term act.

The film also stars Pilita Corrales, Tirso Cruz III, Dennis Padilla, Matt Evans, Martin del Rosario, and Empoy.

"Sobra kaming thankful and we're so happy na maraming nanood on its first day, and sana marami pang manood," Chiu told ABS-CBNnews.com on Thursday, when asked for her reaction to the film's first-day earning of P21.2 million.

"And not just sa mga fans namin, kundi sa mga normal moviegoers, maraming salamat. Nanood talaga sila ng movie, at kahit 'yung mga hindi nanonood ng Tagalog movies, nanood sila this time. So we're so happy, and so thankful!"
