Aldub movie leads MMFF, ticket swapping occurs?

The Aldub movie, My Bebe Love, featuring Alden Richards and Maine Mendoza, wracked up P29.3 million on the first day.

As expected, the phenomenal loveteam continues to captivate their fans by going to the movie theaters in the opening day of the 10-day Metro Manila Film Festival. The Aldub loveteam is part of the movie “My Bebe Love” with the casting of popular Vic Sotto and Ai Ai Delas Alas.

According to Philstar, the SM Cinemas ranked the movies on the first day:

1) Bebe Love – P29.3 million
2) Beauty and the Bestie – P26.3 million
3) Haunted Mansion – P4.1 million
4) All You Need is Pag-Ibig – P3.6 million
5) Buy Now Die Later – P1.9 million
6) Walang Forever – P1.5 million
7) Honor Thy Father – P386,000
8) Nilalang – P299,000

Meanwhile, the popularity of Aldub has produced ticket swapping in the cinemas. My Bebe Love director Joey Javier Reyes has confirmed that there were occurrences of ticket swapping on Friday. Reyes expressed his concern on his Twitter account by saying the fans who watched the My BeBe Love found out that they were given different tickets to a different movie.

Alden Richards and Maine Mendoza have a historic success this year in social media, television and now in movie. Richards and Mendoza in Eat Bulaga’s Kalye Serye boosted the Twitter’s record of most tweeted hashtag in 24 hours that reached 41 millions. Moreover, Aldub increased the viewership of Eat Bulaga since they became a pair which started in July. “Aldub” also is the most searched keyword in Google Philippines while individually (Alden Richards) and (Maine Mendoza) keywords, they are ranked in the top ten of Google Philippines.

How about Aldub breaking the MMFF record in the coming days?
