‘Ocho apellidos vascos’ breaks Spanish box office records

Comedy enjoys best opening for a homegrown movie since J. A. Bayona's hit 'The Impossible'

Emilio Martínez-Lázaro's 'Ocho apellidos vascos.'

Ocho apellidos vascos (or, Eight Basque Surnames) smashed box office records over the weekend, becoming the most-watched movie in Spanish theaters of the year so far.

Box office measurement firm Rentrak confirmed that director Emilio Martínez-Lázaro’s film raked in 2.7 million euros – the best opening for a Spanish movie since Juan Antonio Bayona’s English-language tsunami-drama The Impossible took in 8.9 million euros in 2012.

Ocho apellidos vascos, starring Clara Lago, Dani Rovira, Carmen Machi and Karra Elejalde, is a comedy about a rich kid from Andalusia who passes himself off as Basque in order to win the heart of the only woman who ever resisted his charms. It has been compared with the 2008 French comedy Bienvenue chez les Ch'tis, about a southern Frenchman who travels up north and has to deal with confusing language-based situations.

Rentrak also revealed that Ocho apellidos vascos ranked 14th among the most-watched movies in the entire world.
