The French Box Office: 'Welcome To The Rileys'
Distributed by Bac Films, Welcome to the Rileys landed in 24th place. During its first five days, the psychological drama took in $158k. According to local exhibitors, approximately 20-25k tickets were sold.
Coincidentally, that same weekend Unstoppable, directed by Jake Scott's uncle Tony Scott, also opened in France. I won't make any box-office comparisons, as that would be quite absurd. In the US, at most in 10 theaters at a time, Welcome to the Rileys has grossed (up to Nov. 14) $107k.
