With a worldwide boxoffice of $92M after only 1 week of domestic release, “Despicable Me” is a huge success for Mac Guff and Pierre Coffin.
“Planet 51” only totalled $105M in 16 weeks.
“The Tale of Despereaux” $86M in 11 weeks
“Valiant” did $61M in 13 weeks
“Triplets of Belleville” $14M in 32 weeks
Would the success of Despicable Me (DM) due to the large pool of talents found in France?
I have been told that during Annecy, Pierre Coffin was really really excited by the release of the movie and on stage, he even thanked the french government for its help.
