STUDIOCANAL today confirms that their French produced thriller, NOVEMBER, which received its World Premiere Out of Competition this year in Cannes has exceeded one million admissions in France within 15 days, sitting at number one in the French box office since the theatrical release on October 5th. This is a new record for a STUDIOCANAL film in France.
This follows previous STUDIOCANAL successes such as THE STRONGHOLD, which was one of the biggest French films of 2021. Also directed by Cédric Jimenez, it accumulated over 2.2 million lifetime admissions.
Anna Marsh, CEO of STUDIOCANAL, says: » After « THE STRONGHOLD« , which was a tremendous success, we at STUDIOCANAL are very happy to have renewed our collaboration with Cédric Jimenez and Hugo Sélignac, who produced « NOVEMBER » with Mathias Rubin. We are very proud to support a project led by tremendous actors and bolstered by a team of immense professionals – a team in which, with the CANAL+ Group, we strongly believe. We are dazzled by such a success, and it is proof that the public is there and comes to theatres when they feel like it. It is up to us, professionals, to know how to offer great films. And « NOVEMBER » is one of them!”
From acclaimed director Cédric Jimenez (THE CONNECTION, THE STRONGHOLD), written by Olivier Demangel (9 MONTH STRETCH, LEARN BY HEART, ATLANTICS) and produced by Récifilms (MOBIUS, IN YOUR HANDS, THE NEW KID) & ChiFouMi Productions (SINK OR SWIM, THE WOLF’S CALL, THE STRONGHOLD), NOVEMBER is a riveting thriller based on the true story of the investigation into the 2015 Paris attacks.
An A-list French cast brings to life this breathless 5-day manhunt where every second counts. Academy Award® Winner Jean Dujardin (THE ARTIST, THE CONNECTION, AN OFFICER AND A SPY) stars alongside Sandrine Kiberlain (ANOTHER WORLD, IN SAFE HANDS, 9-MONTH STRETCH), Anaïs Demoustier (THROUGH THE FIRE, ALICE AND THE MAYOR, THE NEW GIRLFRIEND), Jérémie Renier (IN BRUGES, BROTHERHOOD OF THE WOLF), Lyna Khoudri (THE FRENCH DISPATCH, PAPICHA).
The film has sold in over 30 territories. Worldwide sales continue to be handled by STUDIOCANAL at the upcoming AFM. In France, the film will be released on DVD, BD, UHD, VOD and EST in February 2023, and will be available on myCANAL in April 2023.
In November 2015, a series of unprecedented and deadly attacks hit Paris. The anti-terrorist police led by Heloise (Sandrine Kiberlain) and her chief commander Fred (Academy Award® Winner Jean Dujardin) face an unprecedented level of pressure: in a race against the clock, they must find the perpetrators of the attacks as quickly as possible before they can strike again, travelling across Europe and beyond in one of the biggest manhunts in history.
