Netizens are very interested to know if it’s true that a 2022 Metro Manila Film Festival film entry has decided to give out free tickets with free popcorn and soft drinks.
The story was first shared by entertainment reporter/vlogger Ogie Diaz on his YouTube channel.
Diaz said that the Trinoma Mall in Quezon City has allegedly given out free tickets for a film entry on Christmas Day.
“Merong isang film fest entry, ipinamimigay lang ‘yung ticket sa mga gustong manood ng sine noong bandang alas-6 ng gabi noong Sunday sa Trinoma,” Diaz revealed.
The video showed screenshots of two people discussing the free tickets which they said could only be used at 9 pm.
“Ayon sa chikahan sa group chat, 9 pm pa ang screening ng tickets na ipinamumudmod so they have to wait pa for more than two hours para sa screening,” he added.
Diaz said the undisclosed film entry has the letter “M” in its title.
In any case, he gave the film the benefit of the doubt. He said that perhaps a producer had purchased tons of tickets so the film could at least hit the top four.
Moviegoers on social media have claimed that Toni Gonzaga’s ‘My Teacher’ was a complete flop.
Furthermore, the first MMFF was fruitful, to say the least. A-listers like Vice Ganda, Ivana Alawi, and Nadine Lustre didn’t fail to draw mammoth crowds at the box office this holiday season.
‘Partners In Crime’ and ‘Deleter’ were the two highest-rated films, reportedly. The opening day gross for Partners In Crime was 30 million, while Deleter brought in 10 million.
