After a great start beyond the million entries, To die can wait joined the previous ones James Bond, who all enjoyed success at the French box office, already accumulating 2.1 million spectators, including 778,195 gathered in front of 860 screens over the past seven days. A nice score, which allows him to stay ahead of the competition of Dune, Black Box and North Bac and Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings, which remain in the top 10. Denis Villeneuve’s sci-fi film is now third thanks to 186,954 tickets sold in 795 theaters, or 2.6 million in five weeks, but the two French thrillers fall at the bottom of the ranking, around 60,000 countermarks, ie an accumulation of over one million and two million, in six and nine weeks respectively. The last Marvel closes the rankings with 38,809 tickets, which climbs its score to 1.3 million in seven weeks.
