BON COP BAD COP becomes the highest-grossing home grown film in Canadian history

MONTREAL, Oct. 10 /CNW/ – After having ousted SERAPHIN from first place by becoming the biggest commercial movie success in Québec, BON COP BAD COP has just broken another historic record by becoming the most successful Canadian-produced theatrical release of all time. Today, Erik Canuel’s comedy claimed this title by knocking PORKY’S out of the position that it has held since 1982. With $9 013 345 of receipts in French and $2 342 142 with its English version, BON COP BAD COP currently has a cumulative box office record of $11 355 487 officially breaking PORKY’S previous box office record of $11 200 000(xx).

Produced by Kevin Tierney of Park Ex Pictures and based on an original idea by Patrick Huard, BON COP BAD COP is distributed jointly across Canada by Alliance Atlantis* Motion Picture Distribution LP and its Québec subsidiary Alliance Atlantis Vivafilm.

"I find all of this very exciting," said Erik Canuel. "We made this film without any pretensions, but with the hope that people would find it funny. We succeeded in attracting a much larger audience than we could have ever imagined. Thanks to you, the public, for being there. Thanks to you, local cinema can be many genres. Thank you!" added the director.

"I would like to thank all of those who were part of this crazy ride, both the public and those who worked on the film," declared Patrick Huard.
"Thank you for wanting to see and do something different."

"I am totally thrilled by this incredible success," stated Colm Feore. "I am very proud to have been a part of this adventure."

Producer Kevin Tierney summed it up by adding, "I suppose this somehow means that we have become the new pigs on the block. I am very happy about this."

"We are witnessing a historical moment, and would like to thank the whole team responsible for this success," said Guy Gagnon and Patrick Roy from Alliance Atlantis Vivafilm. "The goal of the film was to be the first

completely bilingual production to entertain audiences from coast to coast. We are proud to say that we have achieved our goal, since Bon Cop Bad Cop has distinguished itself as the most successful film in the country," they affirmed.
