The annual filmfest has already earned P701-million, Dominic Du of the MMFF executive committee said to Yahoo Philippines.

Same with what MMDA chairman Francis Tolentino announced last December 26, The Amazing Praybeyt Benjamin is still in the lead in the box-office. The Vice Ganda comedy film is then followed by the Kris Aquino-Coco Martin starrer, Feng Shui 2 and the Vic Sotto-Ryzza Mae Dizon starrer My Big Bossing.

MMFF organizers did not disclose the box-office figures of the top four money earners.

Meanwhile, Vice Ganda has tweeted on Friday that "Praybeyt Benjamin'' surpassed the P300-million mark at the box office.

This means that the film is on track to match 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.

Completing this year’s official entries to the MMFF are the following (in no particular order): the Andres Bonifacio bipioc Bonifacio: Ang Unang Pangulo, the horror film Shake, Rattle and Roll XV and the action film Muslim Magnum .357.
