UPDATE: WE’RE ALL OUT!
Just earlier today Intern Mark was showing me the worldwide box office gross for France’s The Intouchables ($350 million and counting; it’s the 2nd highest grossing film of all time in both France and Germany), and now it looks like the Weinstein Company is gearing up to give it a push here in the U.S. Currently playing theaters (including the Ritz Five), The Intouchables tells the true story of a wealthy, physically disabled risk taker, the picture of established French nobility, who lost his wife in an accident and whose world is turned upside down when he hires a young, good-humored, black Muslim ex-con as his caretaker. Their bond proves the power and omniscience that love and friendship can hold over all social and economic differences.
Cinedelphia has a limited number of Movie Cash passes to see the film in the theater of your choice at your convenience. We’re just going to give them away to the first undisclosed number of readers who e-mail us, I’ll add an update when we’re all out.
