Star Cinema's latest offering, The Mistress, hit the P100 Million mark just five days after its opening on September 12, 2012. This is according to a tweet by Star Cinema Marketing Director, Marj So. This makes the movie a definite contender to lead the country's list of top grossing films of the year. The list is dominated by other Star Cinema movies namely: 1. ÜnOfficially Yours (P151, 882, 737) 2. Kimmy Dora and the Temple of Kiyeme (P131, 395, 980) and 3. The Healing (P101, 100, 916).
