Oceans continues its dazzling international career. In the United States, the film's excellent launch at the end of April has been confirmed by the 2.5 million spectators who've since filled theaters during the first month of release. When the 170,000 admissions achieved in Spain during May, followed by the 45,000 in Mexico after one week alone, are added to this figure, the May tally for the documentary by Jacques Cluzaud and Jacques Perrin reaches 1.250 million spectators, bringing admission figures to a total of 5 million since the beginning of the year.
Babies by Thomas Balmes ventured to American theaters for its first release. Out on more than 500 prints, the documentairy produced by Alain Chabat has already attracted 725,000 American and Quebec spectators. These illustrious beginnings are very promising for the film's career. It was released on June 16 in France, and releases in many other territories will follow in the months ahead.
After achieving remarkable results in Italy and Spain, The Concert carried off a third successful release in Japan (130,000 admissions), thereby racking up more than 1 million admissions abroad. The film by Radu Mihaileanu is slated for release in the United States, the United Kingdom, and Canada (Quebec) this summer.
In a more discreet fashion, Camping 2 got off to a good start in Switzerland and, most particularly, Belgium (107,000 since the end of April), where it leads the French films seen by the highest number of spectators since the beginning of the year.
Apart from Oceans, during the month of May, the 5 million admissions mark has also been crossed by the French-majority production The Ghost Writer, in particular thanks to its release in Spain (825,000 admissions), in Italy (580,000), and the United Kingdom (770,000). This thriller has already outclassed the international results tallied by Oliver Twist, Roman Polanski's previous film.
Oceans and The Ghost Writer are therefore now only a few steps behind From Paris With Love, which continues to maintain its first place position of 2010, with almost 6 million spectators. The fine career of Luc Besson's production continued this month, in particular thanks to its successful release in Japan (200,000 admissions) and Mexico (140,000 admissions in its first week).
