'De Pernas pro Ar 2' crosses $14 million mark
on January 17, 2013
Brazilian films took a hit at the domestic box office with only one film, Até Que A Sorte Nos Separe, cracking the top ten. However, 2013 is already off to a stronger start as the romantic comedy De Pernas pro Ar 2 is holding tight to the #2 spot underneath Wreck-It Ralph with a total gross of $14.1 million in its first three weeks of release. Though its box office is very positive, reviews have been less than glowing for this sequel to the 2010 hit De Pernas pro Ar. This installment follows a workaholic wife who has a nervous breakdown and moves to New York to expand her family's sex shop business. Tellingly, it shares the same director as Até Que A Sorte Nos Separe: Roberto Santucci, who received his film training in Los Angeles at UCLA, and has now firmly established himself as one of Brazil's biggest domestic draws.
