‘Takilya’ war: KatNiel vs Vice Ganda

TAKILYA’ WAR – The “takilya” war for 2018 seems to be KatNiel (Kathryn Bernardo and Daniel Padilla) versus Vice Ganda.


The KatNiel starrer, “The How’s of Us,” is a monster hit, grossing over P800 million worldwide. But then Vice Ganda’s goal for his Metro Manila Film Festival entry, “Fantastica,” is P1 billion, repeat one billion. The box-office count should include earnings after the MMFF playdate (first week of January) and extended screenings, plus overseas earnings.

Is P1 billion too ambitious a goal? It remains to be seen, but then Vice Ganda is formidable box-office magnet.

Who’ll be the “takilya” champion of 2018?
