‘WORLD WAR Z’ Beats ‘MAN OF STEEL:' Scores New Blockbuster Record for Brad Pitt


The Brad Pitt suspense-thriller World War Z has made a big splash at the box-office as it set the title as the actor’s best ever first weekend opening movie. Debuting in 220 screens nationwide, it opened at #1, grossing over P88.7 M on its first weekend, despite competition from strong second week hold-over Man of Steel which had more screens.

Top 10 screens were SM Mall of Asia (P3.84M), Trinoma (P3.82M), SM North Edsa (P3.55M), Newport (P3.22M), SM Megamall (P 2.96M), Glorietta 4 (P2.85M), Greenbelt 3 (P2.61M),Alabang Town Center (P2.43M), Powerplant (P2.39M) and Eastwood (P2.16M).

The weekend receipts handily outgrossed comparative figures of previous Brad Pitt action blockbusters Mr. and Mrs Smith and Troy. It also scored the 5th all-time highest weekend opening for a Paramount movie in the Philippines.

The heart-pounding zombie movie scored the similar records in other Asia-Pacfiic countries like India, Vietnam,Indonesia, Malaysia&Hong Kong.

It also surpassed last weekend’s opening from Man of Steel in Malaysia (+178%) & Taiwan (+41%). In total, WORLD WAR Z has so far taken home an incredible $31,479,178 from Asia Pacific alone and $47,051,370 internationally in its first five days of release.

In the Philippines, the title is expected to hit over P180 Million on its second week with continued strong word of mouth and repeat views still promising a long run.

‘WORLD WAR Z’ is released and distributed by United International Pictures through Solar Entertainment Corp. Showing in over 140 theatres nationwide.
