STILL on the movie, masayang ibinalita ni Kris Aquino that she got a call from ABS-CBN president herself, Ms. Charo Santos-Concio, after previewing Sisterakas (na hindi pa tapos as of December 8, bagay that Kris was not supposed to divulge to the press).
Kris received a positive feedback not just from CSC but also from the other network bosses commending the cast and staff of the movie for a job well done. Forecast pa nga raw ni Ma’am Charo, Sisterakas would emerge top grosser in this year’s MMFF.
Kris then recounted na noong 2010, her entry Dalaw placed third in the overall gross receipts. The following year, her Segunda Mano ranked second. Kung susundin ang pattern, Kris stated with conviction na magna-number one ang Sisterakas.
She could only pin her hopes, dahil the movie is not solely funded by Star Cinema. Singkuwenta porsiyento ang invested ng film arm ng ABS-CBN, 25% ang sa Viva Films and the remaining 25% ay sina Kris, Ai Ai delas Alas, at Vice Ganda ang namuhunan.
This is the trend now in Hollywood where big stars either produce or co-produce their movies.
