MADRID -- Juan Antonio Bayona's chilling tale The Orphanage, set for a U.S. release in December via Picturehouse, is the highest-grossing Spanish production at the local boxoffice since 2003, production house Telecinco Cinema said Wednesday.
With 20.4 million euros ($29.9 million) earned since its premiere five weeks ago, The Orphanage has moved ahead of last year's top-grossing film, the Viggo Mortensen starrer Alatriste, and only 3 million euros behind this year's top earner, Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End, with 23.2 million euros ($34 million).
Alejandro Amenabar's 2001 The Others (27.1 million euros), Javier Fesser's 2003 "The Great Adventure of Mortadelo and Filemon" (22.3 million euros) and Santiago Segura's 2001 Torrente 2 still maintain an edge over The Orphanage.
The Orphanage, produced by Telecinco and Rodar y Rodar with the participation of Warner Bros. Pictures Spain, centers on a woman's plight when she returns with her family to the orphanage she grew up in. The film represents Spain's bid for a foreign-language Oscar.
