As “Ghostbusters – The Legacy” gets off to an encouraging start in a box office still dominated by “Encanto”, “The Bodins in Thailand” will join the millionaire film clan in 2021.
BOX-OFFICE FROM DECEMBER 1 TO 7, 2021: THE TOP 10
The magic of Disney still works and allows Encanto to keep the lead at the French box office for the second week in a row. Without panicking the counters, of course, but by showing proof of solidity since the last animated baby of the studio loses only 22% of its entries compared to its first seven days of operation, and should cross the million mark very soon. .
Before taking advantage of the end of the year celebrations, of which the Disney Christmas is a tradition and the symbol of family outings, to increase its nice score.
The milestone of one million admissions, Les Bodin’s in Thailand has already crossed it in just under three weeks, and the comedy directed by Frédéric Forestier is running out of steam less quickly than one might have imagined: it displays only 23% fewer spectators compared to the previous week, with a Paris / Province coefficient (which compares the number of admissions between the capital and the rest of the country) gigantic close to 50.
Between the two, a novelty makes its debut on the second step of the podium: SOS Fantômes – L’Héritage. Or the sequel to the saga signed Jason Reitman, which takes over from his father Ivan, author of the first two films.
If the figures for the start-ups made by the latter are not known, the feature film does better than the Paul Feig reboot released in the heart of summer 2016, but it will be difficult to find the final scores of the originals, which had completed their respective races between 2 and 3 million spectators.
In the rest of the ranking, Ridley Scott’s House of Gucci has already done better, in two weeks, than his previous film, The Last Duel, in just under two months. Pedro Almodovar signs, with Madres Paralelas, an encouraging start because it is close to those made by Julieta and Pain and glory. And Will Smith timidly finishes the first set of The Williams Method in French cinemas, despite an average number of spectators per copy close to those of Bodins.
