Fete du Cinema promo results up 43%

1 July 2004 | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

PARIS -- Over its three-day run that ended Tuesday, the 20th edition of the Fete du Cinema -- France's annual movie promotion -- attracted 4.3 million viewers, a 43% increase over last year's turnout, organizers said on Wednesday. The National Federation of French Cinemas (FNCF), which organized the promotion in 5,300 theaters across France, said the results equaled the record turnout in 1999. It was spurred by the popularity of such new releases as Shrek 2 and The Ladykillers and Cannes hits Kill Bill: Vol. 2 and Bad Education. French films Les Choristes (The Choristers), Mariages (Marriages) and Double Zero did particularly well, the Federation said. »

French turnstiles register 10.9% jump so far in '04

11 June 2004 | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

PARIS -- Film admissions in France registered a 10.9% surge in the first five months of the year, with 83.5 million tickets sold through the end of May, compared with a year-earlier 75.7 million, the Centre National de la Cinematographie (CNC) said Thursday. The CNC said cinema admissions rose 3.2% to 182.6 million for the 12-month period June 2003-May 2004. While ticket sales dipped 1.3% in March from a year earlier, April admissions rose 44.1%, with U.S. films like Starsky & Hutch and the French films Two Brothers, directed by Jean-Jacques Annaud, Valerie Guignabodet's comedy Mariages! (Marriages) and Christophe Barra-tier's Les Choristes (The Choristers) pulling in crowds. Entries in May increased 10.6% year-over-year, aided by the release of such films as Stephen Sommers' Van Helsing and Quentin Tarantino's Kill Bill-Vol. 2. The market share for French films changed little in the five-month period, at 42.2%, while U.S. films lost out slightly, cornering 45.8% of the market, compared with a year-earlier 47.1%, CNC said. »

Faithful, curious flocking to 'Passion' around world

6 April 2004 | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

As the Easter holidays approach, The Passion of the Christ continued to lure the faithful and the curious in Europe and Latin America and in its initial pilgrimage to Asia, racking up an estimated $27 million from the combined overseas markets handled by Mel Gibson's Icon Film Distribution and 20th Century Fox International. Easter also means school holidays, bracing the market for a batch of family films that saw Scooby-Doo 2: Monsters Unleashed absorb $15.9 million from 35 markets, which included 27 new openings, and Brother Bear, which raised its international gross to $140.7 million after a $6.4 million weekend. All eyes over the weekend were turned to France, where Passion was the subject of heated preopening controversy. But France welcomed Gibson's biblical chronicle with an estimated $3.2 million in its first five days, though it was second on the boxoffice chart to Pathe's Les Choristes, which tallied $3.6 million in its third weekend. »

'Choristes' sings at Miramax

16 February 2004 | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

NEW YORK -- Miramax Films on Monday wrapped up a multiterritory deal to acquire writer-helmer Christophe Barratier's Les Choristes, a French-language period piece about a music teacher who finds himself assigned to a correctional boarding school. The deal had been expected as the Berlin International Film Festival's European Film Market wound down last week, and rumors spread that Miramax would surely pick up North American rights (HR 2/13). But the mini-major didn't stop there, also taking Latin America, Australia and New Zealand territories from seller Pathe International. Penned by Barratier with Philippe Lopes-Curval, Choristes is set in 1948 and centers on the teacher's mission to change his pupils' lives by acquainting them with the magic and power of music after he is stunned by his new school's harsh realities. »
