The film “Blue sea” evoked a polite interest in the film community. Not interested in was impossible – directed by Angelina Jolie, she played a major role by giving a second Brad Pitt. Among other things, this melodrama shooting period coincided with the official registration of the relationship Brandzheliny (as Pitt and Jolie called American critics) – and the wedding finally eclipsed the picture of the complex relationship couples. This is not to say that “Cote d’Azur” generally ignored – Jolie’s previous work as a director, biopic “Unbroken”, fared well at the box office. It was hoped that the new film would be her something more than a sketch of how the couple spend their holidays. But not developed. Comments on the picture turned mixed (32% positive reviews according to Rotten Tomatoes), but critics agreed that it will be interesting only to those who like to look at the movie stars or fans of arthouse. In a wide US release film is not allowed, deciding to first test it in 10 theaters where it actually fell.
Charges “Riviera” for the weekend from 13 to 15 November in the US and Canada amounted to only $ 95.4 thousand.
However, talking about the failure of the film Jolie early. It cost only $ 10 million (the couple apparently worked free of charge), in wide release film will be released in any case, and international shows will bring some money – in the world Angelina and Pitt are still popular. Especially since this is their first joint appearance on the screen after a decade-old action movie “Mr. and Mrs. Smith».
A leading US rental was “007: Spectrum”, earned for the weekend $ 35.4 million.
The leaders of the box office in general have lost a little compared to the previous weekend. In the 24th James Bond film fall, for example, was less than 50% – there were no new products that can distract viewers from the adventures of the agent in the service of Her Majesty. Common fees paintings is now $ 350 million.
The second place went to the animated film “The Peanuts Movie Snoopy and in the movies,” loosely based on the popular comic Peanuts. Fall collections of paintings, too, turned out to be a small (45%), and its fees for the weekend amounted to $ 24.2 million. The entire proceeds of this film was $ 87 million. In Russia, it will be released in late December.
On the third managed to get one of the premier this weekend – Christmas comedy “Love Coopers”, published for some reason in the middle of November, earned just $ 8.4 million.
We are in this picture is a traditional meeting of the four generations of the family Cooper gathered together on Christmas Eve, and starred in her Diane Keaton, Alan Arkin, Amanda Seyfried and Ed Helms. Critics trashed the film – the “Love Coopers” only 16% positive reviews, and the audience gave her assessment of B-. In the Russian hire film will be released on December 17 when all eyes will be on the seventh episode of “Star Wars,” and are unlikely to show good results in Russian cinemas. But the 17 millionth tape is allowed to collect a little.
«Martian” Ridley Scott again left in the top five, earning another $ 6.7 million, and finally overcome the 200 millionth milestone in the American box office. Worldwide Martian Robinsonade collected $ 469.4 million.
Closes the top five of the US box office another premiere – Chilean drama “33».
The film is based on real events of 2010 – August 5 at the San Jose mine near Copiapo collapsed rocks, and 33 miners were cut off from the world at a depth of 700 meters. They were rescued after 69 days, and the course of the rescue operation was widely covered in the media. It was then decided to film this story, and the English-language film shoot took filmmakers Chile and Colombia. Leader immured in the mine the miners played Antonio Banderas; Also in the film starring Juliette Binoche, James Brolin and actors from Chile and Colombia. Cost film $ 26 million and released in Latin America he came back in the summer and has already earned it more than $ 12 million.
In the first weekend in the US “33″ has collected $ 5.8 million.
American critics filmmakers attempt to convey the heroism of real people do not appreciate, outstanding picture only 40% positive reviews. The audience was kinder – their assessment of the film A-. Nevertheless, the “33″ has a good chance not only to preserve the memory of the rescued Chilean miners, but also to recoup the cost of creating. The world rolled film is not really leaving; in Russia, it will be in theaters until the end of January 2016.
