‘Three Words To Forever’ posts P6.5 million opening-day gross

  • Lower your eyebrows now. It has been a week since the much-ballyhooed flick reteaming former sweethearts Richard Gomez and Sharon Cuneta has been released in cinemas across the archipelago and some cities offshore.

    Three Words to Forever, a Star Cinema gamble on a love team that never was, raked in P6.5 million at the box office when it opened on Nov. 28. Not much compared to the take of the recent Daniel Padilla-Kathryn Bernardo outing though the latter is also in the movie sans her on and off screen darling. Still, the leading movie production company in the country is hopeful the movie has legs to stand up till about another second and third week in the plexes.

    Unfavorable notices notwithstanding, the film company proceeds to barrage the potential audience with positive vibes about the Richard-Sharon movie…. that it is one members of the family shouldn’t miss because everyone in a family can relate to any of the characters.

    Those that had seen the movie likened it to Four Sisters and a Wedding (2013) and Seven Sundays (2017) that starts out as a humor-laced depiction of an imperfect Filipino family and later explodes with each and every single character unloading all their pent up frustrations with each other.

    But fans of the abortive Sharon-Richard love team are certainly jubilant about 3 Words to Forever and why not?

    But just like in most Tagalog movies about failed marriage, the Sharon-Richard off-screen romance failed to rev up, and the two followed each of their path to separate directions.

    Now, Richard, mayor of Ormoc City, lives a happy married life with wife Lucy, a congressman in the same city, and Sharon with his Kiko Pangilinan, a senator.

    In Three Words to Forever however, the audience is able to take a peak at what Richard and Sharon’s love chapter off-screen, though implicitly. And that’s what makes Three Words to Forever something fans are looking forward to see in theaters nationwide.
