FRANCE: A Robust Weekend Led by $14.9M 'Iron Man 3'

on May 01, 2013

The power of the French market, however, allowed hold-overs to continue to thrive. Last week's top film, Les Profs, only fell 16% to second place with a $5.5 million take. Les Profs is a certified hit in France, grossing $14.5 million after two weeks in release. Three other French films were able to maintain strong grosses as Iron Man 3 packed theaters. L'ecume des Jours opened in fourth place with a $2.5 million weekend in only 45 screens. La Cage Doree took in $1.8 million for its respective premiere in 232 screens. Les Gamins only fell 18% in its second week, adding $2.4 million to its $6.5 million cume in France. Oblivion, The Host, and The Grandmaster were the films most affected by Iron Man. Each of those films dropped over 45%, and with the exception of Oblivion's $1.2 million gross, failed to break $1 million mark over the weekend.
