The Hollywood Reporter is reporting that “Midnight in Paris” took the second place in France. The movie premiered in France the same time as the Cannes Opening Film and already made 4 million in the French box office. The limited (New York+LA) US release is May 20th. The LA premiere is scheduled for May 18th but we are not sure Rachel will attend.
Woody Allen’s Midnight in Paris, the 64th Cannes International Film Festival’s opening presentation, premiered commercially in France via Mars Distribution, registering an estimated $4 million from some 325 locations and a No. 2 market ranking behind Fast Five.
We will make a round up/additions updates this week with all the Cannes coverage since it was a lot to keep up with. You can already view all our additions in our gallery, but we will make a nice overview for you this week.
