“ME BEFORE YOU” CROSSES $200 MILLION AT THE GLOBAL BOX OFFICE

Wednesday, September 7th, 2016

New Line Cinema’s and Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Pictures’ romantic drama “Me Before You” crossed a major milestone over the weekend, reaching the $200 million mark worldwide and wrapping up a hot summer season at the box office for the film’s distributor, Warner Bros. Pictures. The announcement was made today by Veronika Kwan Vandenberg, President, Worldwide Distribution, Warner Bros. Pictures.

With an outstanding opening in Italy this weekend of over $2.5 million on 413 screens, the film, based on Jojo Moyes’ bestselling book of the same name, was a dominant #1 in that market. “Me Before You” began its successful run in June, opposite the EURO 2016 soccer championships, and has shown longevity through the summer months; top international markets include Germany ($20.1 million), Brazil ($17.1 million), the UK ($13.7 million), Mexico ($11.6 million) and Australia ($9.1 million). It is also the year’s #1 grossing film in Norway, with $5.4 million. Italy’s impressive numbers put the total international box office at $144.4 million and counting which, when combined with a domestic total of $56.3 million, puts “Me Before You” above $200 million globally.

In making the announcement, Kwan Vandenberg stated, “Congratulations to our partners at MGM and New Line, as well as director Thea Sharrock and her entire cast and crew, for this big win. We are delighted with the film’s success and its continued momentum.”

“We have believed in the power this film could have from the day we first read Jojo Moyes’ incredible novel and began putting together the project,” added Jonathan Glickman, MGM’s President, Motion Picture Group. “We couldn’t be more thrilled that the film Thea and her stellar team delivered accomplished the rare feat of being embraced by audiences all over the globe.”

Oftentimes you find love where you least expect it. Sometimes it takes you where you never expected to go… Based on the critically acclaimed, bestselling novel by Jojo Moyes, New Line Cinema’s and Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Pictures’ “Me Before You” stars Emilia Clarke (“Game of Thrones”) and Sam Claflin (“The Hunger Games” movies), under the direction of renowned theatre director Thea Sharrock, in her feature film directorial debut.

When Louisa Clark—Lou, as she’s known—unexpectedly loses her waitressing job she must scramble to replace the income that her tight-knit family depends upon. Desperation drives her to take a job as a caregiver to Will Traynor, a man who used to be a wealthy banker with an adventurous soul, living life to the very fullest, but for whom those days are in the past. After a tragic accident, Will lost the desire to live and now keeps everyone at a distance with his caustic, overbearing attitude. But unlike his family, Lou refuses to tiptoe around him or cater to his moods. In fact, her sparkling personality and easy nature are hard for even Will to ignore, and soon enough each becomes exactly what the other needs. The film also stars Oscar nominee Janet McTeer (“Albert Nobbs,” “Tumbleweeds”), Charles Dance, Brendan Coyle, Stephen Peacocke, Matthew Lewis, Jenna Coleman, Samantha Spiro, Vanessa Kirby and Ben Lloyd-Hughes.

Sharrock directed from a screenplay by Jojo Moyes, based on her book. The film was produced by Karen Rosenfelt and Alison Owen, and executive produced by Sue Baden-Powell. The behind-the-scenes creative team included Oscar-nominated director of photography Remi Adefarasin (“Elizabeth”), production designer Andrew McAlpine, editor John Wilson and costume designer Jill Taylor. The music is by composer Craig Armstrong.

“Me Before You” is a presentation of New Line Cinema and Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Pictures, and is distributed by Warner Bros. Pictures, a Warner Bros. Entertainment company, and Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Pictures.
