Maigret starts in third position. (Source: French Film)
We feel that the school holidays are over by observing the French weekly ranking: only two new products manage to enter it: Maigretwith Gérard Depardieu, is third thanks to 260,011 spectators gathered in front of 585 screens, and Blacklight completed the top 10 with 83,546 tickets sold in 291 cinemas. Continuities then lose between 42% (Uncharted, Retirement home, Death on the Nile) and 55% attendance (Hopper and the Dark Hamster).
Eight out of ten feature films, however, remain above 100,000 admissions, and this is the adventure film with Tom Holland and Mark Wahlberg who is doing the best, with 551,715 admissions registered in 658 cinemas. Apparently, Tom has spent 8 weeks at the top of the French box office since mid-December, thanks to Spider-Man: No Way Home for a month and a half (it accumulates more than million tickets in France, but has just left the top 10), then Uncharted, in two weeks, which has already reached one and a half million spectators. Retirement home (second film in the top 3 to be worn by Depardieu) passes the million mark over the same duration, just like Valiant in a month. Released opposite the animated film, Despite himself superheroes accumulates 1.5 million curious people in 4 weeks and both remain in the top 5.
