Excellent debut for Besson's new film, Malavita (The Family)
American audiences were the first to see The Family (The Family), the new film produced and directed by Luc Besson (a 100% French production). They offered the film an enthusiastic reception, as it jumped to 2nd place at the box office on its opening weekend, with ticket sales reaching $14.5 million (1,730,300 admissions). The Family (released as The Family in the USA) looks set for a successful run, bostered by a stellar cast led by Robert De Niro and Michelle Pfeiffer as a mobster and his wife who are taken into witness protection in France, and Martin Scorsese as executive producer.
A screen adaptation of Tonino Benacquista's book Badfellas, the film will hit French screens October 23.
