“Die Can Wait”, the new James Bond, achieves the best first week of 2021 at the box office France, overtaking “Fast & Furious” 9 “and” Dune “.

As you might expect, the new James Bond is shaking up the box office by taking the first place, and boosting the attendance of theaters: To die can wait, alone, brings together nearly 1.4 million spectators.

A good start, which certainly does not equal the spectacular launch of 0007 Specter in 2015 (2.2 million admissions in the 1st week), but which is at the top of the basket, between Meurs un autre jour and Casino Royale.

Logically, the inputs for Dune fall, but Denis Villeneuve’s sci-fi film continues to attract nearly 300,000 more people, for a total of 2.4 million. Dune is hands down the filmmaker’s best score, well beyond Blade Runner 2049 and Prisoners.

In third and fourth places, the French thrillers Black Box and North Bac still continue to resist very well. The first is now close to a million admissions, and Bac Nord crossed the 2 million admissions mark this week, which places it as the 2nd French success of the year after Kaamelott and before OSS 117.

The only new feature in the Top 10 this week: Tralala of the Larrieu brothers. The musical carried by a vast cast brings together a little more than 40,000 curious.
