The film which goes back to the origins of the sadism of the heroine of the Disney classic has already attracted in French theaters nearly a million spectators in just two weeks. The comedy of Anne Fontaine who imagines the alliance between Hollande and Sarkozy collects fairly good votes.
Cruella, the origin story of the sadistic skin saleswoman from the classic Disney movie The 101 Dalmatians Directed by Craig Gillespie, remains at the top of the French box office with nearly a million spectators in two weeks of operation. Attendance, which was boosted from June 30 to July 6 by the famous film festival, which attracted 4 million French spectators in dark rooms (CBO Box-Office).
Behind this dark-toned prequel set in the London punk effervescence of the 1970s, which attracted nearly a million spectators including 570,401 in the second week, settled down Peter Rabbit 2.
The comedy on the Sarkozy-Holland “duo” starts honorably
Peter Rabbit 2, a film intended for young and old, captivated 482,000 spectators, relegating to third position the new part of the horror saga Conjuring (plus 360,000 spectators anyway, for a total of 1.7 million admissions).
The comedy The sense of family, with Alexandra Lamy, took the fourth step of the podium, attracting 283,000 spectators, followed by Presidents, the film by Anne Fontaine who imagines a reunion between Nicolas Sarkozy and François Hollande. The duo formed by the two former heads of state, played by Jean Dujardin and Grégory Gadebois, made a more than honorable start.
