on October 30, 2013
A $10.7 million bow launched Gravity to the top of the French box office. The sci-fi film played in just 398 screens and collected an out-of-this-world $27,039 per-screen average. Gravity overshadowed two competing premieres, both of which grossed considerably less despite playing in more screens. The Family took $3.3 million from 460 screens and domestic film Le Coeur des Hommes 3 posted a $1.8 million tally from 486 screens.
Turbo finished the weekend in second place but won’t be complaining after a 50% boost in box office from the previous weekend. Turbo picked up $6.2 million in its second frame to reach a $12.8 million cume. 9 Mois Ferme also posted a strong hold-over performance, finishing its second frame 16% below its debut weekend. The $3 million hold for 9 Mois Ferme brings the film’s total to $8 million.
Planes broke the $10 million mark in France after a $2.7 million showing in its third frame. The animated film boosted its box office take from the previous weekend by 60% to take its cume in the market to $10.3 million. Domestic comedy Eyjafjallajokull is still earning after four weeks in release. The film reached a $13.2 million total after the weekend’s $1.9 million take.
