Lucy on the international stage

Luc Besson's film Lucy breaks attendance records abroad.

Lucy has topped 36 million admissions in theaters outside France, according to figures registered late September, and now ranks as the 2nd most successful French film in international markets monitored by UniFrance Films. Luc Besson has thus broken his own record, with his new film taking the lead in the charts for the best-performing French film in Mexico (Universal, 3 million admissions), Taiwan (Universal, 1.4 million), Turkey (Universal, 740,000), and Romania (Ro-Image 2000, 210, 000). In Russia (Universal), Lucy attracted 2.5 million spectators in 10 days, with 1,000 prints released. On its opening day, it accounted for 39.5% of movie screenings in Russia's 8 largest theater chains, and on its opening weekend, admissions to Lucy represented 73% of all ticket sales in Moscow. In upcoming days, the film will no doubt eclipse the performance of Taxi 4 (Central Partnership, 3 million admissions) to become the most French successful film to date in Russia according to UniFrance Films statistics.

Also released at this time in South Korea (Universal), Lucy registered 1.2 million admissions in its opening week, and will soon rank as the 3rd French film ever to have crossed the 2 million admissions threshold in this market. All up, if we add to these results the 200,000 admissions already registered after three days in Japan (Toho-Towa Company), Lucy could well set a new international record—but we will have to wait for its release in China to confirm this prediction.
