The Little Mermaid succumbed on the big French screens to the web woven by Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse, now at the top of the CBO Box Office ranking according to figures published Wednesday.
After the success of the first Oscar-winning part, released in 2018. Sony returns to the charge with this sequel that has kept all its promises. And beats Disney on its own turf, that of cartoons and superheroes, with 120 million receipts in North America alone. In this new animated version of the spider-man, we find Miles Morales, new face of Spider-Man appeared in 2011 in the comics. A cool teenager from Brooklyn, the son of a Latino nurse and an African-American police officer, he was, like the original hero of the Peter Parker saga, bitten by a radioactive spider and swings between the skyscrapers of Manhattan to fight crime.
The live-action version of Disney's The Little Mermaid, by Rob Marshall, suffered a 42% drop in attendance in second place. By domino effect, the latest Fast & Furious X falls to third place on the podium with a loss of attendance of 50%. The film, however, flirts with the two million cumulative spectators.
