Philippines? phenomenal love team AlDub, Alden Richards and Maine ?Yaya Dub? Mendoza, released yesterday their very first movie titled Imagine You and Me and fans made sure that on its first day alone, it will already be a box-office hit.
According to reports, it took only hours for the movie to gross nearly P13 million. Yesterday at 6 p.m., the film had already grossed P5,845,544 in Metro Manila alone. But, it seems like people in provinces are more eager in welcoming the flick as it grossed P7,020,889. All in all, the movie has grossed P12,866,433 after only hours of its release, as noted by the APT Entertainment, the film?s producer.
These figures alone is a huge testament of how fans love the Aldub tandem. Apparently, they do not want to just wait for the pirated copy of the film in the black market as they eagerly waited in line in the cinemas just to get tickets for themselves.
AlDub?s Imagine You And Me marks their very first movie wherein they take the lead roles. It can be recalled that the tandem first appeared in the movie My Pabebe Love, which starred comedians Vic Sotto and Ai-Ai delas Alas. The film was the first time that Maine Mendoza hit the big screens, and although they were just supporting actors in the film, they still somehow helped the film to fight for the Top Grosser honors in the 2015 Metro Manila Filmfest.
Meanwhile, Richards and Mendoza recently received the title, ?The Most Beautiful Stars of 2016,? from a local magazine, Yes!. The magazine, since 2010, has been showcasing 100 choices every year, listing the most beautiful stars in the country, and this year, the duo was crowned and became the cover of the magazine.
Alden Richards was ecstatic on receiving the title since he has been wondering every year when he can graced the magazine?s cover. He mentioned that the title is a big honor for him and it is very humbling since they started as a simple love team.
Mendoza, for her part, also expressed her happiness, especially knowing that although it is her first time to be included in the list, but she has already landed on the cover page.
It seems like the AlDub duo is going to continuously receive big awards just basing on the accolades that they have been receiving now that they are just starting. Imagine You and Me is out in the cinemas so if you haven?t seen it, head to the cinema nearest you. Share your thoughts in the comment section below.
