German Box Office: 'The Nanny' Tames 'Shaun the Sheep'
The new German-language comedy from local hitmaker Matthias Schweighofer beats 'Cinderella,' 'Insurgent.'
German actor-director Matthias Schweighofer has landed another local hit with his latest comedy The Nanny, which opened atop the German box-office charts with a weekend take of $2.8 million (€2.6 million) for distributor Warner Bros.
The opening weekend was the weakest so far for a Schweighofer-directed film, but his fourth effort as writer/director/producer/star still beat all comers, including StudioCanal's claymation feature Shaun the Sheep, which landed at No. 2 with $1.85 million (€1.7 million).
Completing the top five was another Fox title: Matthew Vaughan's Kingsman: The Secret Service, which grossed $933,000 (€857,000)
