Little Thing Besides Artus has become the biggest success of 2024 at the French box office

A few days ago, Artus and his cast were on the stage of the Cannes Film Festival, which kicked off last Wednesday. Today it is at the French box office that we meet the team of Un p’tit truc en plus: released in our cinemas on May 1, the feature film has now attracted 4,331,370 viewers.

This makes it the biggest hit of 2024 in France and then the leader of the top 5:

  1. A little something extra: 4,331,370 entries*
  2. Dune 2: 4,102,591 entries
  3. Kung Fu Panda 4: 2,333,181 entries*
  4. Bob Marley One Love: 2,003,626 records
  5. Kokoriko: 1,956,846 entries

Phenomenon, real. Which, on France’s greatest hits of all time, is currently in position 359, between The Beauty of Cadiz and The Avengers – Age of Ultron. But the superheroes of the MCU have undoubtedly already been surpassed as these lines are written.

Because Artus’ comedy, in which he was opposite Clovis Kornilak, Alyssa Bellaid, Mark Riso, Celine Groussard and eleven actors and actresses with disabilities, drew 902,870 viewers between May 22 and 26. A score close to its first week of release, for a film that has recently seen weekly gains.

Is Artus stronger than Les Inconnus?

Given the experience and the good word surrounding it, Un p’tit truc en plus is now sure to have more than six million acceptance marks. A bar that only five films have crossed since Covid: Spider-Man No Way Home, Top Gun Maverick, Avatar 2, Barbie and Super Mario Bros.

Plus, Little Things will become the first French feature film of this decade to achieve this, which makes the feat even more insane. And it could surpass Jurassic Park (6,738,198 admissions) as the biggest hit of all time in France. Or even The Three Brothers, another first release (in this case The Unknowns) that drew 6,671,066 people to theaters.

Staying as they are, Artus and his partners might just need a little trickery to replace them. And you’ll have to get up really early to get them down at the French box office before December 31, 2024.
