Le Box Office

Just a reminder of how different Quebec's film industry is compared to the ROC: Maurice Richard, the new Rocket biopic, opened in second place at the Quebec box office after Harry Potter this weekend, bringing in $584,785... and this is being covered as a disappointing opening.

Amusing footnotes:
- The name of the vice-president at Alliance Atlantis Vivafilms, Maurice Richard's distributor, who commented on this in La Presse's story? Patrick Roy.
- The name of the movie that came in third at the Quebec box office this week? Les Tiens, les miens et les nôtres.
