Algerian-born French director Alain Chabat scored another hit in Belgium last weekend with French comedy RRRrrrr!!!
Released by Cineart in Belgium the film was unable to dethrone Warner Bros' Last Samurai, landing second place in the chart with $347,133 over the five-day weekend. However, RRRrrrr!!!'s take came from just 23 screens providing a massive $15,093 screen average - easily the highest of any film over the weekend - and more than double Samurai's $6,737 from 82 screens.
The comedy features gallic icons Jean Rochefort and Gerard Depardieu but is toplined by comic troop Les Robins des Bois - made-up of: Pierre-Francois Martin Laval, Marina Fois, Pascal Vincent, Jean-Paul Rouve, Maurice Barthelemy and Elise Larnicol - who also wrote the film, their first feature script.
