"Would I Lie To You? 2!" lives up to its promise
With 4,314,694 tickets sold in 12 days, "Would I Lie To You? 2" is certainly not falling short of expectations after the promising performance of its forerunner (February 20, 2001).
After attracting 2,830,489 spectators in its opening week, "Would I Lie To You? 2" has recorded the second most successful opening for a film in the history of French cinema. 827 prints were circulated in its first week, and admissions soared at an average of 3,423 spectators per screen. This ranks the hit comedy by Thomas Gilou just behind "Taxi 2" (3,478,850 admissions for 831 prints) and ahead of "Asterix and Obelix versus Caesar" (2,718,443 admissions for 780 prints). The film also boasts the second most successful opening in the Paris region, pulling in 517,487 moviegoers in 53 theaters. The film is well on its way to outpacing its predecessor "Would I Lie to You", which clocked up 4,879,200 admissions by the end of its run. This is an overwhelming success for the producers of this second opus (Vertigo), topped off by M6 DA's recent acquisition of the film's international distribution rights.
