The film with Romain Duris will finally be released in October, and the sequel to the comedy in 2022.
The current health situation worries distributors, who have seen attendance drop since the introduction of the health pass in cinemas with more than 50 spectators. Some prefer to postpone films planned for this summer. Aya and the Witch, by Goro Miyazaki, was to be released in August, but will be redated later, and Pathé has just shifted Eiffel, by Martin Bourboulon, from August 25 to October 13. The biopic of Gustave Eiffel, carried by Emma Mackey and Romain Duris, is an ambitious project, which required a faithful reconstruction of Paris at the turn of the twentieth century, which cost the production dearly.
Despite Kaamelott, the health pass undermines the French box office
Another report, on the side of UGC, this time: What have we all done to the good Lord ?!, the third part of the comic saga directed by Philippe de Chauveron, and still carried by Chantal Lauby, Christian Clavier, Ary Abittan etc., was due out on October 13, but was postponed to February 2, 2022. Remember that the first two opus recorded more than 12 and 6 million admissions.
