As expected, the film adaptation of Fifty Shades of Grey is a big commercial success. According to Box Office Mojo, the film has already earned a whopping $265 million worldwide, and is on pace to double its earnings before the end of its theatrical run.
In hindsight, there's a good reason why Fifty Shades did really well in the Philippines (even though we think it kinda sucks)—no other film resonates with us more than this BDSM movie. The steamy dialogue, in particular, is surprisingly very...third world. No wonder Pinoy netizens were able to come up with the hashtag #MNL50ShadesOfGrey, which pretty much describes what the film would be like if it was set in Manila.
