Manila, Philippines – Star Cinema’s latest offering, The Hows of Us (THOU), breaks box office record on its first day.
The much-anticipated movie of Kathryn Bernardo and Daniel Padilla, otherwise known as KathNiel, earns a whopping Php 35.9 million opening gross. The ABS-CBN’s movie production outfit posted the good news on its official Twitter account.
It currently holds the record as this highest-grossing Filipino film in 2018 on its first day.
