BEL AMI Film Box Office Pt.1

In the United Kingdom, the home country of Robert Pattinson and much of the Bel Ami cast and behind-the-scenes talent, Pattinson’s movie scored $1.14m. It’s no. 50 on the UK box office chart.

Relatively speaking, Bel Ami was a more modest performer in the UK, especially compared to Hollywood movies, e.g., War Horse grossed $29.57 million, the Fox-distributed The Iron Lady $15.71 million, Mirror Mirror $10.78 million, and The Phantom Menace $8.23 million as per Box Office Mojo. A handful of independent releases fared much better as well, particularly the aforementioned Daniel Radcliffe movie The Woman in Black, which took in a whopping $34.55m. Having said that, one must take into account that Bel Ami, unlike the vast majority of the more successful movies at the UK box office, has an “adult” theme.

In fact, the Robert Pattinson film earned a “15″ certificate in the UK — no one under 15 allowed in theaters. The Woman in Black, on the other hand, had a “12A” rating — not recommended for those under 12, though children could watch the movie if accompanied by an adult. Steve McQueen / Michael Fassbender’s Shame, which received an “18″ rating and became a cause celèbre because of its theme and sex scenes, grossed $3.2 million.

Bel Ami was only slightly behind three other “15″-rated movies: Clint Eastwood / Leonardo DiCaprio’s J. Edgar ($1.64 million), Roman Polanski / Kate Winslet / Jodie Foster’s Carnage ($1.67 million), and Ralph FiennesCoriolanus, and ahead of Tom Hanks / Sandra Bullock’s Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close, the (modest) US sleeper hit Act of Valor, Jason Reitman / Charlize Theron’s Young Adult, Madonna’s W.E., and Glenn Close’s Albert Nobbs. So far (figures for last weekend are unavailable), Bel Ami is distributor Studio Canal’s third biggest movie of the year in the UK, behind the PG-rated Mirror Mirror and Carnage.

Bel Ami became available on VOD in the US on May 4, the same day The Avengers dominated movie news in North America. Bel Ami opens in select US and Canadian theaters on June 8. Note: the "Bel Ami Video on Demand" site refers to the gay Bel Ami, a highly popular explicit-sex site that has nothing to do with the Robert Pattinson movie.

Others in the Bel Ami cast: Kristin Scott Thomas, Christina Ricci, Colm Meaney, Natalie Tena, Holliday Grainger, Pip Torrens, James Lance, and Todd Peterson. Movie first-timers Nick Ormerod and Declan Donnellan directed from a screenplay by Rachel Bennette.
