The Cannes publicity push was worth its weight in gold for The Great Gatsby, opening across 660 screens in France for a $4.9 million gross and a resounding $7,489 per-screen average. It might not be a full-fledged blockbuster premiere for Gatsby, however, especially considering that it only faced notable competition from domestic hit Les Profs in its fourth week (633 screens) and Iron Man 3 in its fourth week (677 screens). Les Profs kept second place with a $2.4 million weekend and a $28.4 million French cume. Iron Man 3 had a $2.1 million weekend in third place, reaching a total of $36.2 million in France.
