    On Monday, the comedian tweeted that 'Praybeyt Benjamin' has already earned P201 million after its fourth day in theaters.

    'Benjamin's box-office performance so far puts it on track to topple the gross earnings of another Vice Ganda-starrer "Girl, Boy, Bakla, Tomboy," an entry in last year's MMFF that is currently the highest-grossing Philippine film of all time.

    Meanwhile, Kris Aquino-led horror film "Feng Shui 2" has earned a total of P103.5 million in 4 days as announced by ABS-CBN's AdProm Head for Social Media & Publicity Eric John Salut on Instagram.

    On Sunday, Metro Manila Development Authority (MMDA) chairman and overall MMFF head Francis Tolentino officially announced that gross total income of the entries in the MMFF had already reached P365 million for the first three days of showing.

    Tolentino said that the figure is 12 percent higher compared to last year’s three-day total of P326 million.

    He said that the top four films, in no particular order, are “The Amazing Praybet Benjamin,” “Fung Shui 2,” My Big Bossing,” and “Kubot: The Aswang Chronicles are leading the rest of the entries in terms of overall earnings since the first day of showing.

    Other entries include “Bonifacio: Ang Unang Pangulo” “English Only, Please”, “Magnum Muslim .357″ and “Shake, Rattle & Roll 15.”

    However, no official figures from the MMFF have been cited, saying the executive committee is careful not to influence moviegoers by announcing a top favorite in terms of nationwide earnings.

    Tolentino said the festival is likely to hit P1.2 billion in gross earnings when it closes on January 4.

    During the MMFF awards night on December 27, the Robin Padilla-starrer "Bonifacio: Ang Unang Pangulo" and the romantic-comedy "English Only, Please" received the top honors.
