“Midnight in Paris” Makes $75 Million Worldwide

HollywoodNews.com: Just a short story: Woody Allen‘s “Midnight in Paris” has now crossed the $75 million mark worldwide. In a word, it’s amazing. The film has made $42 million in the US alone. It’s the biggest financial success of Woody’s long career. People love this movie. It’s definitely going to be a Best Picture nominee, with Woody picking up director and screenwriting nominations.

I do see potential for Owen Wilson, Marion Cotillard and definitely Corey Stoll for acting nominations. What a lovely summer surprise for us and for Woody. It’s also nice for Michael Barker and Tom Bernard at Sony Pictures Classics. Woody’s next film, “Bop Decameron,” is shooting in Rome now with an allstar cast including an appearance by the Wood Man himself. Woody also gets a two part PBS documentary special this fall.

    I agree, Roger, Midnight in Paris will definitely get a Best Picture nomination. It’s already got the critical acclaim and box office success, and the nomination is the logical culmination of the narrative.

    Meanwhile, it’s made $76.3 million worldwide, and that’s just from 9 countries (counting the US and Canada). It’s a great time to be a Woody Allen fan!
