The French box offices follow one another and are not alike! Last Wednesday, five new products arrived in the top 10, and rebel this week, thanks to the releases ofEncanto, the fantastic Madrigal family, House of Gucci, Resident Evil: Welcome to Raccoon City, In his lifetime and Supreme. Big changes in the rankings, therefore, the new animated film from Disney studios starting directly at the top, thanks to 526,906 tickets sold in 623 theaters, which offers a good average per copy of 846 people per screen. Co-director Byron Howard had done better with his previous films, Volt star in spite of himself (2009), Rapunzel (2010) and Zootopia (2016), which all started after 700,000 admissions and ended up accumulating between 2.9 and 4.8 million tickets. It is however enough to dislodge Bodins in Thailand, which, thanks to 330,688 more spectators, is already approaching one million admissions in a fortnight. The comedy carried by the duo of comedians Vincent Dubois and Jean-Christian Fraiscinet has already largely beaten the scores of Wedding at the Bodins’ and Amélie in the Land of Bodins, which had attracted 76,000 and 100,000 curious in theaters in 2008 and 2010. These two films are still considered successes, because they had been very little distributed by ADR, respectively in 16 and 81 theaters, and have largely been profitable.

House of Gucci, from Ridley Scott, started in third place with 293,474 curious people moved in front of 401 screens. It’s a little better than The Last Duel, the director’s medieval film released last month, which had been seen by 147,221 people the week it was released, then 400,000 in all. The last novelty to start beyond 100,000 entries is the new resident Evil, which sells 110,288 countermarks in 391 cinemas and thus takes sixth place in the top behind Aline and The Eternals, which accumulate respectively 1 and 1.5 million spectators in three and four weeks. The films of Emmanuelle Bercot and Audrey Estrougo are below this symbolic bar, seen by 90,106 and 77,095 people at start-up in around 300 theaters. And it’s Lovers, by Nicole Garcia, who completed the ranking by attracting 72,186 additional curious, or 208,189 spectators in 392 cinemas.
