Fairly stable box office performance in France internationally.

French cinema attracted 1.27 million viewers and brought about 8 million euros in box office receipts internationally in June. If we compare this result with previous months, it is the least rich in receipts since December 2021 (1.19M) and far from the exploits of February (3.61M), March (2.74) and April (2.93) 2022 of the year. The first months of the year are characterized by the appearance of long-awaited and promising games that are released in many markets within a few weeks: Julie (in 12 chapters), Hopper and dark hamster as well as Valiant each mobilizes over 1 million foreign filmgoers, while wolf and lion continues its excellent career, attracting another 970,000 children and adults. These excellent gains, concentrated over a period, also explain the gap that widened in May and June.

OlympicsHowever, one thing. In June, over 240 different films and over 160 new launches were screened across five continents. French cinema retains its place on the international scene thanks to a diverse film offer, a rich heritage and a solid team of professionals. Like all other cinemas, it is facing a sector still heavily affected by the effects of the pandemic, an attendance that is gradually rising but remains far from pre-2020 levels, and a public enthusiasm for Hollywood blockbusters that have monopolized more of their choices than before. . But he also knows how to adapt: ​​animated and family films, popular in this first half of the year, were able to find their audience, especially the smallest ones, who returned to cinema the most. and re-opened the way to traditionally less Francophile territories (Latin America, Turkey, etc.); auteur cinema remains a win-win and earns encouraging results in certain markets such as little mom in North America (90,000 visits and $0.83 million) and in the United Kingdom (41,000) or even Olympics which attracts more foreign viewers (200,000) than French ones (195,000). In the first six months of 2022, French cinema attracted 14 million viewers outside of France. It must be admitted that the drop compared to the same period in 2019 is impressive (-50%), but in line with the average trend of the global market. Comparisons with 2020 (cinemas started to close from the end of February) and 2021 (cinemas started to open from April) do not make sense, but there is an increase in the number of foreign viewers of French films: 16.2 million in 2020 and 17.6 in 2021 year. Thus, French cinema is involved in the recovery in 2022.

Western Europe strengthens its leadership

Western Europe captured just over half of French cinema visits in June (53.1%). and carves out a much larger share than in previous months. Not surprisingly, the two countries with the most French moviegoers are in this zone: Germany (nearly 200,000) and Turkey (130,000), performances based respectively on comedy and animation. Next, with over 50,000 visits, are Spain and Denmark, as well as Australia and Mexico (leading in May). Central and Eastern Europe and Latin America generate over 10% of monthly visits, while Oceania is ahead of North America (6.3%). against. 4.7%.

Comedy returns to the stage

After a month of June in which three genres went head to head (animation, comedy/drama and drama), in June one of the three clearly prevailed over the other two. Comedy/drama attracts 523,000 foreign moviegoers within a month analyzed and monopolized the top 10 below with 5 titles. The monthly share of animation is close to 30%, and several ambassadors of success can be counted on, including the most popular French film of the month on the big screen in the world, heap (168,000 entries). With numerous sequels, the drama closes the podium, while all other genres give way to 100,000 tickets and 10% of the market share.

Majority and Francophone productions still lead the way

178 French initiative films shown in cinemas account for 69% of viewings. recorded in the month of May, thus earning 7 points over the previous month, and the title (heap) has over 100,000 tickets. A minority of productions (65) see their share reduced to 31% of monthly viewers. and also have only one movie that crossed the threshold above, Julie (in 12 chapters) (130,000), and a second barely passes this threshold, Hopper and dark hamster (95,000). Films in French continued to dominate the scene with 1 million views, almost 80% of the total views for the month, while the only Julie (in 12 chapters) attracts half of the audience of French films in a foreign language.

Best tricolor performances

Peel was the most watched French film on the international big screen in June. Operating in 17 markets, it brings together 51,000 Turks, 40,000 Vietnamese and 26,000 Australians among others. It stood out in Venezuela, where it scored over 28,000 passes, the best tricolor since 2019. Treasure of little Nicolas 12,000 Hungarians and 37,000 Germans delighted, while the latter were slightly more to choose from Almost (41,000).

Vice versa, We are made for each other took its first steps internationally and attracted 30,000 German fans of French comedies, while yakari movie comes out in Turkish theaters (28,000 views) a year and a half after the release on the French screen.
