BRAZIL: 'Meu Passado Me Condena,' Domestic RomCom, Leads the Weekend

on October 30, 2013

MPMStill.jpgRomantic comedy Meu Passado Me Condena opened in first place in Brazil over the weekend. The film stars Fabio Porchat and Mia Mello as newlyweds who find themselves sharing a Honeymoon cruise with their exes…who have also gotten married to each other and, apparently, use the same travel agent. The high-concept comedy proved to be a big hit with Brazilian audiences, earning $2.3 million from 411 screens to dethrone Gravity as the country’s top film. Meu Passado Me Condena also led the per-screen average category with $5,698.

Gravity settled for second place in its third frame in Brazil. The sci-fi film posted a $1.1 million hold from 319 screens, a 26% drop from the previous weekend. Gravity has grossed a total of $6 million during its Brazilian run. Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs 2 has proved to be resilient in Brazil, finishing its fourth frame in third place with an $844K outing from a market-leading 590 screens. The animated sequel has grossed a total of $11.9 million in Brazil. 

Brazil was the only major overseas territory where Ridley Scott’s The Counselor shared a day-and-date premiere with North America. The Counselor has suffered nearly unanimous derision from critics and stumbled out of the gate at the North American box office. A limited release in 158 screens put the The Counselor in fourth place with a $534K bow. The $3,384 per-screen average gives it a competition edge heading to its second weekend, where The Counselor will need to expand in order to gain momentum.
