The fantasy adventure Si Agimat at si Enteng Kabisote, starring actor-politician Ramon 'Bong' Revilla and Vic Sotto, remains the top box office hit at the 2010-2011 Metro Manila Film Festival, during which only Filipino movies – eight of them this year – are screened in The Philippines. To date, Si Agimat at si Enteng Kabisote has taken in P131,213,092 (US$2.98m).

Starring former president Corazon Aquino's daughter Kris Aquino – who also happens to be the current president's (Benigno Aquino III's) sister – the horror thriller Dalaw has brought in P65,550,261 (US$1.49m). Dolphy's Father Jejemon has been at the bottom of the box office chart despite the veteran comedian's Best Actor win announced last weekend.

Albert Martinez's Rosario, a socially conscious period drama starring Jennylyn Mercado, hasn't been performing all that well, either – possibly because, according to one journalist, Martinez's movie isn't as widely available as some of the other Metro Manila Film Festival entries. On Dec. 26, Rosario was ahead of only one movie: Father Jejemon.
