The remake of The Little Mermaid starts first at the Italian box office of the weekend with a good result (but no record whatsoever), followed by Fast X and Marco Bellocchio’s beautiful Kidnapped.
And finally the new version of The little Mermaid has emerged at weekend Italian box office: il remake Disney it started with 4,272,400 euros collected in five days (source Cinetel), with 117,500,000 dollars in the USA in three days and 68,300,000 worldwide (source Boxofficemojo). Here in Italy the result is predictably below that of the unattainable of the remade Re Leone in August 2019 (14 million euros), but also lower than the debut of the remake of Aladdin in May of the same year (6,390,000 euros), again over the five days. With $185.8 million in global gross, The Little Mermaid with Halle Bailey it got off to a good start and it is plausible that it will recover its budget of 250 million dollars, but it does not therefore set records.
Slide from first to second place Fast Xtenth chapter of the saga on four wheels led by Vin Diesel, also on Italian soil. The film, which sees a wild one as the antagonist Jason Momoa, records another 1,831,000 euros, which flows into the provisional Italian total of 9,534,700. With a worldwide result of 512,931,300 dollars (for a cost of 340!!!), this new deed seems to have less road holding than the previous ones in the USA and in the world, even if Chinese already boasts 110 million dollars.
Enter third position, fresh from the transition to Cannes Film Festivalthe beautiful Kidnapped Of Mark Bellocchiostory of kidnapping of Edgardo Mortara in the mid-nineteenth century: the child of a Jewish family had been baptized secretly and without the knowledge of the parents, and the laws of the Papal States required that he be raised in a Catholic environment. The collection is 459,000 euros, over four days.
Slide from second to fourth place Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3the special chapter of the Marvel Cinematic Universe: The Farewell of Star Lords & Co. (director James Gunn included) you confirm the Guardiani most seen and appreciated in Italy, with 10,362,000 euros (380,250 in the last weekend). With 723,500,000 in the world, however, it is still the least acclaimed, just below the first chapter, and is far from the 864 of Vol 2.
Fifth position for the concert film Roger Waters – This Is Not a Drill, brought to theaters by Nexo Digital, after the success of the previous Roger Waters. Us + Them in 2019, the 79-year-old English musician also attracts audiences in cinemas, with 272,500 euros.
