10 highest grossing Hollywood films of 2017 in PH

There is no doubt that 2017 was a big year for Hollywood movies not just globally but also in the Philippines. As you may have observed, some of the most anticipated and most watched movies shown in local cinemas for the past year were international releases.

In 2017, Disney was the biggest winner in the Philippine box office, as its offering Beauty and Beast generated ticket sales of over P672 million, based on estimates by online box-office reporting service Box Office Mojo and global movie industry data and research firm The Numbers. Warner Brothers’ Wonder Woman earned almost P527.8 million based on estimates.

In comparison, the highest grossing Filipino of all time, Beauty and the Bestie starring Vice Ganda and Coco Martin, grossed a combined P526 million worldwide from 2016 to 2017. Data about the local films that were shown in movie houses in the past year are yet to be released, though we do not expect any of those to challenge the figures earned by the top Hollywood films in local box office.

Tech and Lifestyle Journal compiled estimates from both Box Office Mojo and The Numbers in 2017. The data cover box-office estimates in the Philippines alone. Here are the top 10 Hollywood films that made it big in the Philippines in the past year.
