Taxi 4 takes the lead

After hitting theaters in Taiwan last weekend,  Taxi 4  has jumped straight to number 1.

This is the second time this year that a French film has reached the top spot in this territory on its opening weekend (after  Priceless  - see our news article on this subject). Distributed by Deep Joy Investments Limited, the film has registered 40,000 spectators in 47 theaters.
Taxi 4 was also released at the same time in  Japan  where it is coming close to the 100,000 admissions mark on 237 prints.
 Asia  is clearly offering a warm welcome to the film by  Gérard Kawczynky. with  South Korea  also registering over 150,000 spectators since its release on July 15.

These excellent results reflect the success of this  Luc Besson  production in other international territories, particularly in Eastern Europe. 2.8 million admissions were registered in  Russia  where the film was released early March on 500 prints (see our news article), 200,000 admissions in  Hungary  (released early April on 25 prints), and 75,000 admissions in  Poland  (released late April on 50 prints),

And, in a rare feat for a French film, Taxi 4 was released in a number of Near and Middle Eastern countries in the spring, including the  United Arab Emirate  (18 prints),  Qatar  (2 prints),  Lebanon  (5 prints),
 Kuwait  (7 prints), as well as in  Turkey  (50 prints). These regions are traditionally difficult markets for film product, and French films are no exception.
