Top 10 Highest Grossing Pinoy Films of All Time

Don’t look now, but these films, all 100% Pinoy creation, are the most successful blockbusters to hit town. Perhaps redefining a new era for Philippine cinema. Proving once again an increasingly apparent fact: Pinoys and movies are inseparable.
Yes, we may not have the same flourish and grandeur as our Hollywood counterparts – who flaunt the latest movie technology with ease like a baby playing with her toys. Or the command of a Steven Spielberg or the genius in a Peter Jackson saga. But pinkie swear, Pinoy films are riveting. Though a bit predictable. With its lean towards the hilarious and the affectionate.

Presenting then with pride, to you brave men and discerning women (above the age of consent and perhaps below the age of fidelity), the Top 10 countdown of Pinoy films to have gathered the most crowd, and gave the most bang out of the viewer’s buck.
