Aldub fans flocked to the movie houses as My Bebe Love movie screened on its first day. This movie is the debut film of the popular Aldub love team from the GMA network. Maine Mendoza and Alden Richards star along with Vic Sotto and Ai Ai delas Alas. This movie promised to ‘kilig’ the fans. A jump from their TVs during the Kalyeserye, to the big screen.
In SM City Dasmarinas (as seen on the picture), the lines stretched from the cinema cashier to the edge of one wing of the mall. The mall opened at 12 noon. The photo was taken around 1 PM and it was at a standstill for hours. Loyal fans of all ages (from kids to senior citizes) bear the line, wait, and inconveniences just to watch their favorite TV personalities and support them on their first movie. Some even waited early in the morning, before the mall opened, just to be the first in line. The sudden influx of movie goers stuffed a million pesos into the box office during the first hour of screening (8 AM), according to director Jose Javier Reyes (in a GMA network interview). Direk Joey thanked the supporters and fans for watching the movie.
