'Vai Que Da Certo' Holds Strong as 'G.I. Joe' Takes Top Spot in Brazil on April 04, 2013

Vai Que Da Certo grossed $2 million over the weekend in Brazil, a mere 7% drop from its debut the previous week. The Brazilian comedy/action-caper performed splendidly, outgrossing the premieres of Jack the Giant Slayer and The Host. Another Brazilian film, A Busca, was also able to stay in the top ten in its third week of release, reaching a $1.6 million domestic cume. Anna Karenina and French import Dans la Maison fared well in limited release, breaking into the top ten despite small screen counts.

New Poster and Trailer Released for Brazilian Punk Biopic 'We're So Young' on March 29, 2013

were_so_young.jpgOn the 17th anniversary of punk rock singer Renato Russo's death, the filmmakers behind his biopic We're So Young, have leaked the film's poster and a one-minute clip of lead actor Thiago Mendonça singing one of Russo's most famous songs, "Generation Coca-Cola." The biopic is promoting the twist that Mendonça is live-singing and recording Russo's music in a concert-like performance atmosphere to give them the high-energy feel of the small, live concerts that made Russo famous in Brazil before he died at 36 of complications from AIDS. The film follows in the wake of the similar 2004 punk biopic Cazuza: Time Don't Stop, which was a significant box office success. We're So Young will be released in Brazil on May 4.

Halle Berry Announces Brazilian Visit to Promote 'The Call' on March 28, 2013

the_call.jpgHalle Berry will travel to Rio on April 8th for a press conference and the premiere of her new thriller, The Call. In The Call, Berry plays an emergency 911 receptionist who receives a phone call from a kidnapped young woman (Abigail Breslin) that dredges up her own painful past. The Call has already opened stateside to solid reviews and box office -- the $13 million flick has made $31 million domestically in just two weeks -- and will launch in Brazil on April 12th. Halle Berry's last film, Cloud Atlas, opened to just $1.5 million in Brazil and left theater with a total of $4.9 million. The Call is her chance to rebound her box office image, which has taken a hit in the last five years, so her Brazil visit may prove well worth the trip.

BOX OFFICE ACTUALS: 'The Croods' Dominates, but 'Vai Giving Right' Elbows into History on March 27, 2013

The Croods opened to $3 million in Brazil, more than enough to win the weekend. But it's the Brazilian caper comedy Vai Giving Right that's stealing the headlines. The heist flick about a group of former high school friends placed second for the weekend with $2.1 million, but actually made more per-screen than the DreamWorks caveman cartoon -- so much, in fact, that it placed #10 among Brazil's highest domestic openers, narrowly behind 2011's Bruna Surfer Girl, which went on to make $12.3 million. If Vai Giving Right can rake in similar numbers, it'll definitely be one of the Brazilian industry's biggest box office heists of the year.
