Can’t Help Fall­ing in Love ( CHFIL), the re­union movie of the love team of Kathryn Bernardo and Daniel Padilla, aka KathNiel, re­port­edly reached the P200 mil­lion mark af­ter a four-week run. And that’s just in local the­aters. The fig­ures, ac­cord­ing to the film’s pro­duc­tion com­pany, Star Cinema, do not in­clude the to­tal gross of the movie’s sub­se­quent run in the­aters around the world, in­clud­ing the U.S.A., Canada, the Mid­dle East, and parts of Europe.

Star Cinema also re­ported that CHFIL earned P33 mil­lion on its open­ing day last April 15, the day af­ter Good Fri­day, making it the high­est-gross­ing local film open­ing on a Black Satur­day.

Un­known to many, Black Satur­day is a cov­eted screen­ing slot among local pro­duc­ers, next to Christ­mas Day (which is al­ready re­served for the an­nual Metro Manila Film Festival en­tries).

In­ci­den­tally, KathNiel are also this year’s re­cip­i­ents of the Box Of­fice King and Box Of­fice Queen tro­phies from the 48th Box Of­fice En­ter­tain­ment Awards, given by the Guillermo Men­doza Me­mo­rial Schol­ar­ship Foun­da­tion. The awards were for the suc­cess of their 2016 movie, Barcelona: A Love Un­told, which re­port­edly grossed P321 mil­lion from its world­wide screen­ings.

With these im­pres­sive fig­ures, KathNiel have proven that their magic and crowd-draw­ing prow­ess re­main strong and that they are, unar­guably, this coun­try’s num­ber one love team.

Kathryn and Daniel held each other’s hand nearly the en­tire time at The Play­ground of the Bench Tower, at the Boni­fa­cio Global City com­plex in Taguig City, when they at­tended the March 10 launch of Bench Fash­ion Week. The KathNiel love team is one of the top en­dorsers of the global cloth­ing brand Bench.

On­screen cou­ple Kathryn and Daniel have yet to ad­mit that they are also a cou­ple off­screen, but their body lan­guage says it all. Dur­ing the CHFIL press con­fer­ence, for in­stance, Daniel’s arm hardly ever left Kathryn’s thigh.

The press­con, by the way, was held on March 30 at the Ilustrado Restau­rant in In­tra­muros, Manila.
