Home Movies Celine Dion Biopic “Aline” Has Made Just $628K Since Last November, Had...

I’ve never understood what this movie is.

But “Aline,” which is supposed to be the Celine Dion biopic, has been in release since last November. Who knew?

Initially it made around $600K in a very limited release, then disappeared. Since then it’s played in stealth release, sitting in one or two theaters and making $12 a day.According to boxofficemojo, “Aline” made $0– no money– playing in one theater on April 3rd.

Then this weekend, for some reason. “Aline” reappeared in 61 theaters.

The take: $21,000.

I shouldn’t be surprised. The American distributor of this French-oriented film is none other than Roadside, er, Roadkill Attractions. They can kill any movie you hand them. Meanwhile, “Aline” has been released in a half dozen other countries — not Canada, of course, that would be too on the nose — and made $402,000.

“Aline” is in French, with subtitles since Celine is from Quebec. In France, where they evidently understand the whole thing, “Aline” reported $10 million at the box office. The star, Valerie Lemercier, won the Cesar (French Oscar) for best actress. Sacre bleu!
