French b.o. enters 'Bronzes' age

16 February 2006 | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

PARIS -- A film about a band of trashy, loud-mouthed 50-something characters on vacation has captured the imagination of French filmgoers, smashing a series of boxoffice records in France, and raking in €39 million ($46.4 million) from 950 screens nationwide in the two weeks since its Feb. 1 opening. Les Bronzes 3: Amis Pour La Vie has had a phenomenal take-off, with opening week tally of 3.9 million tickets sold surpassing previous French opening-week toppers Asterix and Obelix: Mission Cleopatra (3.7 million), Taxi: 2 (3.5 million) and Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire (3.1 million). But this is no ordinary sequel -- the six raucous characters featured in Amis have become French cultural icons since they starred in their debut film Les Bronzes (The Suntanned Ones) in 1978. Set at a Club Med resort on the Ivory Coast, the first film parodied the pettiness of brash young French tourists in the 1970s, who equated vacations with sexual conquests. »
