While “The Mad Story of Max and Leon” is broadcast on TF1 this Thursday, July 29, the next Palmashow film is already in the box. But we will have to wait a few months before finding out.
With a box office of 1,228,382 admissions, which earned it the First Work Trophy awarded by Le Film Français to the first French feature film that attracted the most spectators in theaters over a year, the Palmashow n ‘ has not missed its passage from the small to the big screen. And while La Folle histoire de Max et Léon is preparing to celebrate its five years, Grégoire Ludig, David Marsais and director Jonathan Barré have already spent the second.
If the pandemic had not intervened, forcing theaters to remain closed from October 29 to May 10 inclusive, we should have already seen their second feature film, entitled Les Vedettes. Because the latter was to be released on April 28 at the cinema. We will finally have to wait until February 9, 2022 to discover this feature film about which we currently do not know much, except for the photos posted on Instagram during filming.
Last December, Jonathan Barré unveiled the following synopsis: “Daniel and Stéphane, two salespeople in a household appliance store who cannot stand each other, decide despite everything to team up to participate in television games, convinced that they can repay their debts in this way. But Daniel and Stéphane are naive and celebrity. will quickly go to their heads. “ But he then told us that it was going to change.
Same story, a few days later, on the side of Grégoire Ludig and David Marsais during the promotion of Mandibles by Quentin Dupieux. Adding, however, a little information: “The only thing we can tell you is that this is the first time that we are in opposition. We are not friends. Our duo is not friends.”
It will therefore be necessary to be patient, at least until a first trailer, before knowing more. But everything suggests that the trio will revisit some well-known television games, and thus claim, a little more, the influence of the Unknowns or the Dummies on their work and their humor. In the meantime, it is in the Second World War that they plunge us, this Thursday, July 29 on TF1, with La Folle Histoire de Max et Léon, where their love of Charlots and La Grande vadrouille shines through.
