10 Pinoy Movies You Didn’t Know Existed
In Pinoy Box Office race, there are winners and losers. Based on the list of the movies released in 2013 to 2014, it is still far more compared with the previous years. Last year has been a fruitful year for the domestic box office with seven movies breaching the elusive P100-million-mark earned during its entire run at the local cinema in gross revenues last year (2013) and at least two movies for the first quarter of 2014. This will prove that the movie industry is not dead after all.
If there are winners, there are also losers. Losers not just in terms of grosses but also because only few of its market knew that these movies existed. These movies did not received the same faith that happened to these top-grossing movies. These are the movies which lack almost everything, from stars to production, to promotions. Sigh!
In this respect, it seemed like a logical time to take a look back on the movies shown in the local tills that most of Pinoys didn’t know existed.
