04.26.2010 - MANILA,“Clash of the Titans” solidified its blockbuster status in Philippine box-office as it reached the milestone P200-mark yesterday, April 25 after only three weeks, becoming the year’s most successful film to date. This was announced today by Francis Soliven, general manager of Warner Bros. (F.E.), Inc. which distributed the film.

“Clash” attained the milestone Sunday when it posted a cumulative gross of a staggering P201.58-million...

The film’s sensational run propelled Warner Bros.’ year-to-date earnings to reach a jolting P515.89-million, which is quite impressive since its only four months into 2010.

“This is the first time in local history that a film distributor conquered the P500-million mark in under four months,” says Soliven.

Aside from “Titans,” the studio’s other certified box-office successes were February’s teen fantasy “Percy Jackson and the Lighting Thief” (which Warner distributed for Twentieth Century Fox) which grossed P94.24-million, January’s action-adventure “Sherlock Holmes” (P53.18-million) and the comedy “Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Squeakquel” (P51.96-million), as well as the ensemble romantic comedy “Valentine’s Day” (P34-million), released last February.

The rest of the year looks even brighter for Warner as its potential juggernauts are still to open. “As the saying goes, `The best is yet to come,’” says Soliven. “As it stands, we hope to breach the P1-billion mark before the year’s fourth quarter because of our strong line-up.”

Still to come from Warner are the horror-thriller “A Nightmare on Elm Street,” the highly-awaited sequel “Sex and the City 2,” the comic book adaptation “Jonah Hex,” the mind-bending thriller “Inception” starring Leonardo DiCaprio, the comedy adventure “Cats & Dogs 2,” the 3D adventure “Legends of the Guardians,” the comedy “Due Date” starring Robert Downey, Jr. and second-to-the-last installment of the enduring Harry Potter franchise, “The Deathly Hallows, Part 1.”

From Fox (which Warner sub-distributes), the upcoming potential hits are the film adaptation of the TV classic “The A-Team,” the Tom Cruise-starrer “Knight & Day,” the Robert Rodriguez-directed actioner “Predators,” Oliver Stone’s sequel “Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps,” the action-thriller “Unstoppable” and the fantasy adventure “The Chronicles of Narnia: Voyage of the Dawn Treader.”
