Bel Ami seems to be slowly slipping out of the Top 20 of the Australian box office holding onto no. 19.  It’s only showing in 34 cinemas Australia wide so I doubt we will be seeing it there next week.  According to UrbanCine – Aussie box office as at 18 June 2012 was $746,193.

Box Office Mojo has US takings as $72,853 – this is cinema takings and doesn’t including VOD – and it’s very limited cinema release.

Foreign takings, by my calculations, are $7,544,169.


It’s early days for Cosmopolis but clearly France loved it.

Box Office Mojo is claiming Cosmopolis foreign total as $2,837,056, but my calculations are $3,527,614

 UK Box Office figures aren’t available yet since screenings didn’t commence until 15 June.  So I’ll update next week.

    Thanks @maria, this is very much appreciated.
    Go France!!!

    Just a question @maria, do you think it will be very limited release here in Australia too?? I really really want to see it more than once but I am worried I won’t be able to if I have to travel all the way to Melbourne – I live on the Mornington Peninsula south of Melb so it’s 1hr drive for me.

    @Ephie I don’t think it is going to be that limited, but I’ll find out esp re Melbourne.

    I do know @ephie that Village Cinemas are screening Cosmopolis but as they told me in an email last night “in a very limited capacity” Disappointed as they are the one & only cinema in my city 🙁 Am all set to travel of course but was hoping like you, Cosmopolis would be screened close so I could go & support Rob & the film multiple times.

    Thanks for the prompt reply girls. I have both Hoyts and Village near me but I usually have to travel further out for these limeted release movies. If they bring it to Southland or Chadstone I should be able to go twice at least but if it’s in the city then I will probably be able to go only once…That would be such a pity because based on all reports it’s the kind of movie that demands a minimum of 2 viewings.

    @ephie I’ve sent you an email, but just know peeps, ICON have told me they are currently working out how limited the release will be and will confirm to me once they know for sure what is happening 😀

    I donated to the Bel Ami figures again today with a girlfriend I used to go to primary school with…….see, Rob can even re-connect old friends!! How talented he is, lol! Can I just say I didn’t think it was possible to love it more, but it was even better the second time round. Everyone in the audience loved it also. Room full of oldies (was a morning coffee special session) giggling and gasping like teenagers 😀 Can’t work out if they were there coz they didn’t read the ‘strong sex scene’ warning…..or maybe they did 😉

    Keeping fingers crossed you all get to see it and don’t have to travel too far!!

    Thanks for the numbers updates Maria too. 🙂

    LOL @Val. I think this movie has been under promoted much like Remember Me. The non-Rob fans I’ve taken to see both these films have loved both of them and bought the DVDs so at this stage I’m just throwing my hands up in the air
